Call of Duty continues to make people misbehave

Written by Nick Farell



Robbery, Assault and Battery


The new Call of Duty game appears to be inspiring Americans to behave rather badly.

Yesterday we heard how a bloke threatened to blow up a shop after his pre-ordered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was not available. Now it seems that a Kansas City man found himself staring down the barrel of a real gun as he arrived home with a copy of the video game.

David Morales, 18, (No relation to the DJ) thought that the line outside the store was too long and tried to steal another gamer's copy at gunpoint, the Kansas City Star reported today. He followed Adam Freeman home and pulled a gun on him and demanded he hand the game over.

However Freeman thought that owning the game was worth risking his life and grabbed the barrel of the loaded weapon. Morales had a a sudden attack of “perspective” and fled. Coppers investigating the case popped around to the store wanting its CCTV footage to see who followed Freedman. They were amazed to find Morales inside, waiting to buy a copy.

lol, this is rediculous. That bloke's comments has nothing to do with the game.

In other news: People are found to be stupid.

This kind of behavior, while despicable, has nothing to do with CoD or whatever.

It's merely about broken human beings, who'd find other outlets for their uncontrollable urges if video games weren't around.

Well this is what happens when you release a game for children and retards, you don't see any of this with BF3, my aunties boyfriend got all upset because he pre-ordered MW3 and because it didn't arrive in the post the day it was released so he went out and bought a copy instead, called him a faggot and told him he's got no patience.

My EB Games botched my Skyrim Collector's Edition pre-order ... and I pre-ordered 8 months in advance. I was also VERY mad. ... in the end I've had to get one from eBay at a higher price, luckily the EB Games guys gave me special permission to return the normal edition which I took from them (bought) for a full refund when my eBay-sourced Collector's Edition gets here ... dunno what they'll do with it, since I've Steam activated it, but it's the least they could do - since I wasn't going to postpone playing by 2 weeks after pre-ordering 8 months in advance. :cry:
