Video games are serious business.

Is the death sentence really that necessary?


#10

I hated by share games but I never would condemn the developers to death. Why they care about a game from a no one heard about til now?


#11

Streisand Effect incoming: Game we never heard of getting publicity for all the wrong reasons, people will check said game out.


#12

When it comes to Middle Eastern politics, just know that the game is always chess, and never checkers.

That being said, this is Iran’s way of “hitting back” amidst all the shit about to go down once a solid oil embargo from the Europeans and the U.S goes through…

What’s wrong with Aruba? It’s nice.


#14

I think he’s referring to the disappearance of Natalie Holloway and another girl under suspicious circumstances

Damn. Too bad all the land in the world is pretty much occupied. Guess we have to start looking at either Mars or the moon atm.
