Serial Killer Blames Dark Souls for Her Actions
Filed under: DARK SOULS

News outlets often enjoy pointing to video games as the reasons why heinous people do heinous things. The latest instance lies with Fox News (shocker), as they point to Dark Souls as a possible cause behind the Craigslist serial killer Miranda Barbour. Barbour apparently really enjoys the unforgivingly difficult game. From the report, Barbour claims that the cult activity in the game made her want to kill.

I'm not sure who is reaching more, Barbour for saying it or Fox News for buying into it.

Dark Souls II is releasing on March 11th for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

It was Judas Priest that turned me into a mass killer.

"My Little Pony made me shoot up that elementary school," argued a psycho.

Same shit, different day. Still, no goddamn ground for the argument to stand on.

The Village People did it for me. Whenever I am killing people with a blunt axe I like to hum along to YMCA !

dark souls get free marketing
fox gets free marketing
ads plastered all over fox get more marketing
craigslist gets free marketing
bible thumpers recruit more people
lawyers get more work
prison complex gets more trash to lock up and profit from
internet sites serve up more ads to more people discussing the trash

i'd say everything is as it should be, capitalism at its finest :)

Morons will try to blame anything to deflect responsibility for their actions, and other morons will 'report' it to boost ratings or bolster their own hatred of something.

In the past many things have been blamed, including:
Music
TV
Cartoons
Poetry
The Bible
Twinkies
and the list goes on and on.

My advice, don't believe the b.s. and accept that everyone is responsible for their own actions.

and in the 70s and 80s it was dungeons and dragons that made kids kill and commit suicide
