Yeah, calling for a ceasefire is just a bad idea; like others said it is pretty much saying "yeah, we're at fault so go have some fun tearing us apart, media".
The (news) media is so corrupt at this point that anything the "target blame group" (AKA us) does that is different than normal, no matter the intention (including donating to charity or defiantly saying that we are no more to blame than any other media form), they will use it against us. Just watch; if one of the major news outlets wants to, they'll run an article saying "gamers know they're at fault for shootings" and have this to back them up.
I spent my gaming last night having fun slicing apart bandits in Borderlands 2. A melee-focused Zer0 is a lot more...exciting...than my Cataclysm Maya, I've found; both are fun to play in their own ways too. Still like both Sirens better (I love elemental damage; give me a Maliwan SMG and I'm happy). Of course, I didn't know about this "ceasefire" until today, but if I did I might have jumped into Starhawk and shot some of my clanmates instead. But I would not agree to a ceasefire like this to submit to the media; no way in heck.
