Too Much Call of Duty. Yes It’s Possible

15-year-old Tyler Rigsby went on a marathon session of Call of Duty that ended up with him collapsing from dehydration.

The teen started playing early last weekend and according to him mom only came out occasionally to use the bathroom and get some snacks.  The session went on for “four or five days” and when he finally did emerge to go with his mother to go to his aunt’s house, that’s where it all caught up to Tyler’s body.  “It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me,” says Jennifer Thompson, Tyler’s aunt. “We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.  I was very scared. I thought he was going to die,” she remembers. “He just fell over three times.”

Tyler was taken to a hospital where he was given an IV and pumped full of fluids, as he was severely dehydrated.

His mom, never really explaining how she allowed her son to stay up and play a game for four or five days straight, did tell the local media that she had taken away his Xbox.

Man Threatens to Blow Up Best Buy

Lomorin Sar was arrested Tuesday morning outside of his local Best Buy after threatening to blow up the store, along with several other violent suggestions because Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 had sold out.

Claiming he had pre-orderd the game he threatened store employees, telling them he would shoot them when they left the store, and then blow the Best Buy into smithereens.

He was arrested after being pulled over by police down the street from the store.  Maybe he won’t feel so silly when he hears that a shipment in France worth $500,000 was stolen by men using tear gas on a delivery truck over the weekend.

Certainly he would have been just as upset if it had been Madden, right?
