Gaming News: "What the Hell?"
Posted: Wednesday October 29th, 2008 by

Sometimes I can read through gaming news for hours and find nothing worth making fun of. And then sometimes I stumble head first into enough material for several comics. That's the case this time around. But, there wasn't much for me to actually draw. So, I made the decision to let the words stand on their own. **shrugs** I embrace my oddity.

So here's what Ted and I are talking about:

Zhenghao Shen, a chinese student attending university in Australia, stabbed a "friend" in the head with a chef's knife after being asked to turn down the volume on his computer several times. Shen and four of his friends (one being the victim) were playing World of Warcraft at the time. Charged with "intentionally inflicting grievous bodily harm", the 21 year old has been denied bail and is being held in custody until next month.

Commissioned by the Content Delivery and Storage Association (CDSA) and the Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA), The NPD Group, a global market research company, has conducted a study examining the package handling habits of gamers. Unintentional double entendre aside, the study polled 562 gamers that have purchased a "retail-based physical video game in the past six months". The study found that 11% of those polled owned games that they have yet to open.

Note: I do have an unopened game in my collection, it's a copy of Bully. **shrugs** Whoops.
