Bomberman

「桃鉄」ハドソンを「80兆円持って高松駅まで来い」と脅迫

29 year-old delivery man Ike Takao of Kagawa Prefecture was arrested for sending bomb threats to the video game company Hudson Soft. One threat included “Bring 80 trillion yen in cash to Takamatsu Station! Or else I’ll keep sending bombs to your company until everyone is dead!” After being arrested he said, “I sent them my opinions and hopes for their games, but they didn’t make the games better, so I did it.”

Among his opinions — Momotaro Densetsu: momo not big enough to fit small boy. Bomberman: not enough bombs.

    Are you trying to be facetious?

    His real complaint was there is no 100 year mode for Momotaro Dentetsu, which if I remember from previous versions would require the kind of time commitment only feasible for a 29 year old chronic deadbeat.

    It sounds like he has a screw loose and didnt really intend to mail a series of letterbombs.

    I definitely agree. I’m sure he was angry about whatever, but the way he worded his threats make them sound just like a ranting fanboy, not an evil genius. At least the police are took it seriously. Still, the irony that Hudson makes Bomberman is pretty great.

    “he has a screw loose and didnt really intend to mail a series of letterbombs.”

    Maybe he walked over one of those virus icons.

    The real question: is 80 trillion yen adequate compensation for playing an unsatisfying game?

    Yeah, it’s kind of amazing that game companies haven’t been sued over this in the States. I guess being slammed by Penny Arcade or a similar online presence is a fate worse than litigation, though.
