320w ago - Insomniac's sci-fi FPS Resistance: Fall of Man may have missed out on a couple of hard-fought nominations at last night's BAFTA awards, but it can finally go to sleep at night with a clear conscience. The Church of England -- after a long and tempestuous relationship -- has at last deigned to publicly forgive Sony for turning the in-game representation of Manchester Cathedral into a digital bloodbath.
The BBC reports the Very Reverend Rogers Govender, Dean of Manchester Cathedral, waited until Resistance had failed to clinch any BAFTA awards before issuing the benediction.

A gunman opened fire in a downtown high school on Wednesday, and five people were taken to a hospital, the mayor said.
The suspected shooter, a 14-year-old male student, apparently killed himself after the rampage, police said.
The student identified as the shooter by students at the school had been suspended Monday for fighting, said Charles Blackwell, president of SuccessTech's student-parent organization. School officials said the suspect was not supposed to be at school that day.
