    Hi,

    just read a topic on onrpg whith this link

    http://news.mmosite.com/content/2007-11-20...231834547.shtml

    I can't, or better i don't want to believe something like this. How can someone really let go of all his humanity and kill someone ... and than only for 6$ -.-V

    I know that some little kids tend to overreact while playing some games but to go that far and kill ...

    Saddening. Reminds me of the story of the mother that died from drinking too much water to win a Wii for her kids.

    That was because she was over-intoxicated by the water.

    Still, she died trying to get a Wii, even though other people have died from their own pee before.

    I love the fact that it uses the same "player died because of not leavin his seat for 3 days" propaganda that we said the Chinese used! I also love the fact that Vietnam still has "re-education" camps!

    The story itself isn't really all that shocking, people have been killing each other for 5 or 6 bucks for a long time now. Is Vietnam still communist/socialist? I know they've opened their borders up but I think there's still socialism/communism. Sounds more like propaganda to me. "Sure our kids kill each other for drugs/shoes/clothes/turf/etc. but look - here they kill each other over on-line games."

    I wonder what game he was playing, and how much dong you would need to buy anything worthwhile on it.

    Also, I still find it funny that their currency is "dongs".

    I don't see why people are shocked and it's big news when someone kills for a computergame..opposed to for example a dvd, book, tin of paint etc.

    But of course, computer games are a tool of satan.

    I would kill for my copy of SMG and UT3 to turn up.
    SMG has been in transit since last Thursday.
    UT3 was cancelled by me today because HMV are incompetent and don't order PC games for their online store, fuck waiting 3 weeks for it to be sent out.
