It’s no secret that the highly anticipated new first-person-shooter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was going to inspire some intense reactions from fans, but the stories surrounding the game’s release are just getting more and more bizarre.
In France, not one but two shipments of the game were robbed at gunpoint. Thieves made off with thousands of copies of the game worth hundreds of thousands of Euros.
Meanwhile, in Aurora, Colorado a 31-year-old gamer’s pre-order was botched by the local Best Buy store. Instead of accepting the store’s offer for an upgraded version of the game, Lomorin Sar went off the deep end:
Employees at the Aurora Best Buy location told authorities that they were “scared for their lives” when Lomorin Sar, 31, allegedly claimed he would shoot people in the parking lot if he could not purchase the military simulation game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” NBC affiliate 9-NEWS reports.
“Investigating officers issued a criminal summons to a man who threatened to carry out his own version of modern warfare at the electronics store. Fortunately, this situation did not end in violence,” said Detective Bob Friel, according to the Aurora Sentinel.
This is just stupid lol. I mean CoD IMO is a crappy game. It got stale after World at war. But I guess just goes to show you what some people will do for a game >.>
The reason fundie Christians love George Bush so much is because he was the only president dumb enough to come close to ending the world and let's face it the fundie Christians just want to go "home" - Marc Maron

And people say MMOs steal your souls. I'm starting to wonder if they aren't talking about FPS games now >_>;
If you see me typing in "quotes", that's because I'm remembering what it was like to be a fundie and then typing as if I was one :3 "Please. Understand that I only want to share God's love with you. I mean you no harm, really. You need to stop sinning."

Really? He didn't want the Hardened edition of MW3? I'd have accepted it right on the spot. >_> But that's me.
And I got my copy for free. I hope he doesn't shoot anyone at the thought of that.
MaybeNever- Perhaps the solution then is to throw the chihuahua at the bad guy, then pump the shotgun while eating a big slice of cantaloupe. Am fear nach glèidh na h-airm san t-sìth, cha bhi iad aige 'n àm a' chogaidh.
