It's not like the iconoclasts at Rockstar Games to take the path of least resistance, but that seems to be what they are doing. R*'s controversial forthcoming game Bully
(out in October) is apparently getting a change of name and will be known henceforth - in the European region at least - as Canis Canem Edit.
This is the Latin motto of the fictional Bullworth Academy, the school of hard knocks which you attend in the game, and translates as 'Dog Eat(s) Dog'. There's nothing wrong with that, although we are bound to reveal that it is a slightly inelegant piece of Latin. Classical scholars close to SPOnG tell us that they would have preferred 'Canis Edendus Cane', or 'Canis Canem Edat', both of which closer approximate the original English idiom, or even the archaic form 'Canis Canem Est', which trips off the tongue a little less clumsily.
Whatever, we think it's really rather a clever move which will deflect vocal critics of the in-progress game, who have based their attacks purely on the the game's name. Apparently, it's still to be called Bully in the US, although whether that's because R* wants to continue courting controversy, or simply feels that ancient languages might bewilder American consumers, is anybody's guess.
