Date rape without the sex. Still very worrying that anyone would think it is ok to drug another person. The game is irrelevant really because this was a serious crime against the person. But, as usual, the press need a handle and hence we are talking about it here. Vandro touches on a point about what game was he playing? Again very worrying because when this sort of event is published it is all too easy to focus on peripheral events rather than the abuse. To only be fined, seems to me to lessen the serious nature of the crime. Next thing you know we'll hear about individuals running around shooting people or strapping bombs to themselves. Oh, we have that already...
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!



To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks
