I bet you don't love this list at all, do you?
An 18 year old went into a fit of rage late on a Saturday night(Aug 9th) after his game of Starcraft was cut short because his internet connection cut out. The enraged 18 year old proceeded to grab a kitchen knife, walk into the street, and then stab an innocent 15 year old girl passing by on her way home form a party with her friend. Although she was stabbed multiple times by the crazed 18 year old, none of the injuries were life threatening.
As for the 18 year old, he was going to be convicted of attempted homicide, but instead is being sent for psychiatric care. Occurrences like this make you wonder what must be running though his mind. He could have simply waited for the connection to come back, but now because of his irrationality and rage, he probably won’t be playing Starcraft for a long time to come. I’m sure this will turn out to be another bad notch in the “gaming makes you do bad things” belt.
Yes, It was an old news, we don't know because it was originally from a Swedish site on that day.

This is a video of some crazed Asian man dancing his ass off while displaying some of rarer Neo-Geo titles in his collection. It's by far one of the most disturbing things I've seen, but I can't help but watch it again and again. It has something to do with the way he dances, which is technically amazing. You can't learn those moves in gym class! I don't care how many times you offer to stay after school and help pick up the orange cones.
Watch at your own risk here: Link. Not safe for work!

Coincidentally, Infinity Ward's outspoken community manager Robert Bowling released a cryptic update on his Twitter feed the same day hinting at the possibility of bringing the popular game franchise to film, stating:
First round of meetings in Paris wrapped. Grabbing lunch with Xavier Gens, director of the Hitman film while in town. Talking game films.
If approved, the trademark reserves for Activision all applications of the Call of Duty moniker as they relate to "pre-recorded movies featuring comedy, drama, action, adventure, music, theatrical performances and/or animation." Given the anonymous report published in The Hollywood Reporter last May and the incredible sales of the Call of Duty franchise (Activision claims Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sold more than 13 million units) a summer blockbuster seems like a sure thing. While we wait for the inevitable film adaptation, take a look at the most recent Modern Warfare 2 trailer for a sneak peek at what to expect when Call of Duty hits the silver screen. (Gamepro)
I bet most of you have watched Black Hawk Down, it was...
A study conducted by Singapore’s National Institute of Education reveals that its youth rack up an average of 27 hours a week playing videogames.
The group has polled over 3,000 students during the course of the three-year study, which The Straits Times reports is still ongoing. Lui Tuck Yew, acting Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts was reportedly “quite surprised and a little bit shocked” at the number of hours spent gaming.
Lawrence Lee, a 16-year old World of Warcraft player, called four hours of gaming a day “nothing,” and compared the game to fledgling love:
It is the novelty, like getting a new girlfriend. You want to spend every minute with her.
I'm not sure if Maggie Q can play the role well, but...we do know what exactly makes Mai popular to us. Just imagine what is catching your eyes when Mai is ready for battle...
It's no secret that females in video games are typically blatantly, sexualized byproducts of perverted character design. Between their skimpy attire and grossly exaggerated anatomy, most ladies featured in video games look more like prostitutes than crime-fighting, evil-slaying heroes. While games like Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden and Soulcalibur continue to perpetuate the demeaning myth that girls should dress like whores to sell games and kick ass, there are those leading ladies that have striven to break the stereotype.
Zoey (Left 4 Dead)
Being the female in a predominately male group of zombie apocalypse survivors, Zoey could easy have been a scantily clad, buxom schoolgirl cliché. After all, that's the way women are typically portrayed in zombie video games if Resident Evil 3, House of the Dead: Overkill and Hunter: The Reckoning are anything to go by. Valve, however, designed Zoey as a normal, female college student trapped in abnormal circumstances. Her jeans and pink parka is feminine without being sexual, yet she totes enough guns and ammunition to keep an army equipped. She may have almost flunked out of school for watching too many horror movies, but she gets
Flying PvP is a bad enough concept, and NCSoft fails to dissapoint, with their terrible implementation of it!
Not only is the games netcode so horrible that you pretty much can't keep up with someone who is moving while flying, they'll randomly warp 50 feet! If you're melee and a ranged starts flying with you on them, you might as well give up right there because you're never going to catch them. Hell, I do more damage AUTOATTACKING PEOPLE WITH MY BOW while chasing them than I do trying to hit them with my actual abilities.
In their wisdom, NCSoft decided that snares do not belong in Aion. They decided that all the best stuns should be not usable on air targets. They decided that the speed boosts your class is balanced around should not work while flying. Continue Reading Here, he has a lot of reasons to explain, however, which turns to a flame war......
I shall say, it is the best article I read today. I'm sure the blogger's point in this article will hurt someone's feeling, well me included, but just like Guidor said: "I think the most important factor is people subconscoiusly hate it (World of Warcraft) because they spend so much time and effort in it, not getting laid, that they have to blame something for their hopeless addiction."
I'm sure everyones heard it all before; someone brings up WoW in another MMORPG, on some forums, whatever, and you instantly get replies from 15 raging nerds including the words noob, kid, and easymode, all too eager to tell everyone about how much they loathe WoW.
Now, why do they dislike the game so much? Is it because the game is imbalanced? Is it because they think it's too easy and not a challenge? Is it because there isn't enough totally sweet hardcore World PvP for their liking?
It's because WoW forces you to fight fair
I'm sure everyone knows the type i'm talking about, your generic MMORPG zergling that makes up 99% of the population of every game, and consequently is 99% of the Wo
