The Phillipine Star recently reported that a young girl was shot in her left eye after teasing her friend about making a "subpar play" in a computer game at a near by computer shop. The young boy that killed her apparantly shot her with a home made gun.
Veronica Galang was shot by a schoolmate, who is still unknown to the police.

She was 17 years old.

Don't know what to say -- rather, I'm more concerned about today's youth.

all I have to say is the phillipinos better deal with this ass clown in a rather harsh manor. this isn't expectible at all, I've been extremely mad at people before playing games but I never wanted to kill them or acted on such an urge at the worse I'd go sock a hole in a wall or continually bash a controller as if the controller was the person I wanted to destroy that is acceptible social behavior it's called restriant this kids needs to be found, found guility as an adult and sent to death row or get executed plain and simple we can't have these overly sensitive walking pyschopaths playing games, now everyone's going to blame video games for him killing her when in fact he's just a massive ass clown that would of ended up killing some one even if video games weren't invovled. that's it this upset's me peace i'm out.

I say cut his hands off and give him a good cain-ing with a bamboo stick. Then he will regret everyday using his own hands to kill.

just to point this out, extreme cases involving gaming is not new, there's a knifing incident in S. Korea before this because ok PKing in an online RPG game (and several similar cases)

this is just sad though, wish ppl would have more self control than this
