I dont know if anyone saw this, but I heard it in the news about a week ago. And once one of my friends mentioned it on the phone I thought it was pretty interesting, and hey, well all know these forums could use some news, haha

A Japanese lady kills her online husband after he divorces her in a game, so she hacks his account, kills his avatar, and now faces up to five years in prison.


"A 43-year-old Japanese woman whose sudden divorce in a virtual game world made her so angry that she killed her online husband's digital persona has been arrested...[using] information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, she killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead."



I personally think if you are getting married through a video game theres gotta be something wrong with you in the first place...if you cant find a real flesh n bone human in person.

I dont know what game it was, but it reminds me of the mmorpg Asada Story, where you find a 'soulmate' and go hunt some monsters. Funn stuff


The online article can be found here

1 on Rodge. I saw the highlights of that match and have to say, most if not all the goals were spectacular.
