Armed Robbers Nab 100 Copies of Black Ops

1 min read


The latest in the insanely popular Call of Duty series,  Black Ops – which releases tomorrow – is quite probably the most anticipated game of the year. Some people are just so damned eager to shoot some virtual guns that they took up real arms – and stole the game.

Two men, armed with semi-automatic held up a GameStop in the Festival at Bel Air shopping center in Harford County, Maryland – seemingly with the aim to procure themselves some Call of Duty.

This is a story all about how
Some boxes got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d  like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how some dudes robbed a shop in mall called Bel-Air

The armed robbers stole cash, consoles, and about 100 copies of the soon to be released Call of Duty: Black Ops. they escaped in a white minivan, and have yet to be apprehended. Thankfully, nobody was hurt during the incident. Presumably they’ll try flog those copies on eBay or craigslist – although no local  listings have turned up anything yet.

Couldn’t wait just a few days, guys?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
