E3 2009 / Baby seal heads as hats in Overlord II is cool with PETA

If you’ve been enjoying the just-released demo for Overlord II (if you haven’t there’s something wrong with your face), specifically the evil act of massacring all those adorable baby seals and having your minions wear their heads as hats, then your future as a serial killer is A-OK. Even PETA thinks so!
