Game Time Podcast Preview: MMO Player Loses Big-Time Money, @only1mart Appears





According to Joystiq.com, this week a player of the MMO game EVE Online found out why you don't simply cart around over $1500 worth of in-game merch unprotected.

For whatever reason, Ozuwara Ozuwara, in a move that was as perplexing as his repeating name, loaded up the $1500 worth of PLEX (which is essentially 30-day subscriptions to the game's servers), and set sail for the deep dark reaches of space.

Then all Hell broke loose and the next thing he knew, fellow gamer Diorden, made the 84 pieces of PLEX nothing more than space flotsam.

This begs a question or two: WHY ARE PEOPLE SO STUPID? WHO SPENDS $1500 ON IN-GAME MERCH AND THEN DOESN'T PROTECT IT? and IS THERE ANYBODY ALIVE THAT CAN FEEL BAD FOR THIS GUY AFTER THIS BLATANT DISPLAY OF SUTPIDITY?

This Tuesday afternoon, I invite Mart (@only1mart) to Toons Game Time where we will discuss this and other great topics in the world of gaming.

Weight in on this or any other video game topic and we'll include your comments in the show's discussion. Do so by commenting in the comment section below, using the comment section on facebook, emailing your response (in an email OR mp3 format) or hitting Brian up on twitter (@ToonsBrian).
