“High-Elf” Attacks Car with Machete in Portland, Oregon
Konrad Bass, warrior of Middle Earth, explained that he is a “high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth.”

As Melkor, Morgoth could take any form, but after turning to the darkness, Morgoth usually took on the appearance of a “dark lord,” leading many to suspect that the red BMW, though a machine of Mordor, was not in fact Morgoth.

[People don't play monopoly] 'because it's crap. It takes ages to play, suffering long action-free periods in which the players endlessly circle the board in search of the streets they need to complete a set, and lacks the interaction between players that we look for in a game. In short, it's boring and lacks skill. Except that it isn't crap. Actually. You just have to play it the way it was designed to be played.You just have to read the fucking rules.'

The Microtransaction Investigation | bit-gamer.net
"'It's too expensive', 'Pay to win' and 'It feels cheap' - these are the complaints often levelled at free-to-play games, while others worry that they are paying for content that's been deliberately cut from the original release.

These sound like fair arguments, but are they really? We're not sure, so we decided to grab our clipboard and calculator, setting out to investigate several of the most popular microtransaction-supported games."

Relying on interest and talent much more than planning and business strategy, the developer has become synonymous with both quality and success."
