Are you on LSD ?

What are you useless at? Cos If came round and said I was gonna kill your kids......

Doubt it, you would still be useless biggrin.gif

Star Wars the Old Republic Online - Mega Trash
Warhammer Online Wrath of Heroes - Trash (except this got taken out like trash should)

Blizzard trash
Diablo 3 - Trash
World of Warcraft - Every expansion since WotLK is mega trash

anything im missing?

Yeah, you're missing the part that video games should not be important enough in anyone's life to threaten someone's life or the life of their children over.

Wow, really?

Seriously? That's horrible. It's a game, for entertainment. No need to threaten actual people with death over it, let alone children. Such despicable behavior.

Anybody defending those that issued the threats, regardless how invested you are in your games, you're completely and entirely delusional, and such actions would never contribute to the better of anybody's society.

It's a shame that some of the people that she thought she was helping the most, ended up being some of the typical scum of the internet.

Wow, just read through all 18 pages. Must say some of you are a little hypocritical. No one is perfect smile.gif
But yes, i totally agree that threats like this one is totally unacceptable, and the one responsible to be punished.

Who are you to say what is important and what is not? Let's be real, Dragon Age is serious business.

Meh, this is a daily occurrence in South Korea. Luckily, unlike South Koreans, we're allowed to keep guns around. So really, whatever. People in such positions should be more careful anyway. If I was a writer, I'd definitely keep a sidearm within arm's reach 24/7. Crazy netizens man. Craaaaazy.

That is just going way to far. On a side note I really liked Dragon Age 2 and am looking forward to part 3. And another vote for pound-me-in-the-ass-prision. Maybe a few years there would teach them to think before they speak.
