Speaking of losing faith in humanity

Apparently, Call of Duty: Black Ops is TOTES AWESOME YOU GUYZ! How do I know this? Because I infer all my video game reviews from ARMED ROBBERS IN BALTIMORE. Some of them went into a Game Stop there and stole 100 copies of the game along with some consoles. No one was hurt. Except society. I wonder if the robbers were at home later yelling, “WHEEE! THIS IS SO MUCH FUN AND COMPLETELY WORTH HOLDING PEOPLE UP AT GUN POINT! HOORAY!”
