The Oslo Massacre and Violent Video Games: the Facts
It has been mentioned in the media here in Norway, but it's really not part of the discussion about why he did this. His political beliefs (anti-Islam, anti-Labour Party, etc) is the focus now. In addition to how much of a lunatic this guy really is.

The file contains historical information as I understand it, so obviously it contains more info than it should.
