Earn real-life weapons by playing videogames

Examiner: "Not content with the real baseball bat you get in the mail for beating prostitutes in Grand Theft Auto IV? Have I got a deal for you! Massively multiplayer online collectible real-time strategy game SAGA (quite the mouthful) is the center of a new contest in which the grand prize is none other than a ballista.

Yes, I said a freaking ballista. Not entirely sure what a ballista is? Well, step one involves looking at the picture associated with this article, but if that's not enough for you, let's just say that it's like a giant crossbow designed for hurling boulders and huge arrows made out of tree trunks." (Culture, PC, Saga)

WTF?!?!

You took the words (or at least the acronym) right out of my mouth.

What is Saga? Cookigaki has never heard of this game.
Vault Boy  +   1875d ago
I played it one time. Seems like it could be cool, but it was a little "cheap" feeling if you know what I mean.
Cookigaki  +   1875d ago
No, Cookigaki does not really know what you mean.
Vault Boy  +   1875d ago
OK fine, just play it yourself then. It IS free to download.

A ballista could come in handy some day I suppose.

I can see the news headlines though; "Games provide murderers-in-training with real weapons of mass destruction!"

Ahh! Don't give the terrorists any ideas! They could use this ballista to shoot a grenade up to 200 feet away from them!
