It would be unfair to say Rockstar Games has a history of making questionable content. Perhaps a more accurate statement is that Rockstar Games has a history of making questionable content with almost every other release. Well, Rockstar Presents: Table Tennis has been out for a little, so now it's time to fan the flames of game censorships again with the release of Bully.

According to TechWhack, the game is apparently slated to join us in the US in October. This would be quite a bump up from its listed release date of December 5. On the other hand, it would make more sense, since the European release date is November 11, and usually EU release dates follow US ones.

For people who have been trying to avoid the train-wreck spectacle that this title likely contains, I'll enlighten you. The story focuses around 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins, who has landed in the boarding school Bullworth Academy. You guide Jimmy through an emotionally difficult and poigniant time in his life filled with valuable lessons and....oh, who am I kidding. Little Jimmy beats the crap out of people for fun and profit. A lot. Sometimes with baseball bats, and even a bag of marbles.

It is unclear right now whether TechWhack pulled this information from an official source, as Rockstar's official site contains almost no information. However, the shift in time could be better for Rockstar if the game has more merit than its preview tells us. Otherwise, they're probably better off with the December release, where kids can ask for it for Christmas before word gets to parents about its real content.

Got a thought on the possible jump in time? Looking forward to this game? Shaking your head, wondering why they'd even make this? Let us know your thoughts in our forums.
