Courting Deceased Gamers

Rude Gameware earns a link to their gamer lifestyle website with a press release that sends up the recent white paper stating that the game industry is on the verge of losing 30 million customers due to age. This new release points out another problem: "Rude conducted its own research to try and determine how much revenue was being lost each year by not making games that were more accessible to the recently deceased. The findings were staggering." Having identified this hole in the market, they are poised to cash in: "Rude Gameware expects to have their peripherals for the deceased for sale at all funeral homes, mortuaries, Circuit City, Sharper Image, Game Crazy, and other defunct retailers."

There's a link to the story that this one refers to! Jesus people. It's still a pretty dumb joke, but it's really not hard to get it.

Ok, but now read the above news without the knowledge of any such report, or what its a humorous response too, and you will see how people might be very confused as to what this is about. Or if the writers of that press release aren't escaped inmates of shutter Island ;p

Once your done courting, then what? Last I checked, necrophilia was still illegal.

And why exactly were you checking on its legality?

In other words, it is making fun of the Able Gamers report.

Exactly. It's not THAT hard to figure out, is it, people?

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
