Tragedy in World of Warcraft [Click for full article]
This past Sunday our nation, the nation of Azeroth, came under attack.

He threatens to stab me if I don’t give him a copy of this new JRPG, and all the free 30 days of WoW cards that the store has. As I act like I’m reaching under the counter, I take out a handful of game cases and start to throw them at him. I eventually knock the knife out of his hand with a well thrown case.

He tried to rob the store because his Parents wouldn’t pay for his WOW subscription.”
