    Don't spam me bro!


    The guy's a douche, love how he talked shit the head of Penny Arcade, then he tried to suck up to him and get on his good side once he realized* who he was and the guy just put him in his place.

    *Read "googled".

    I laughed pretty hard until I realized that there was no update about the original guy ever getting his controllers that he ordered.

    This guy's threatening to give out credit card information now on the people who ordered his controllers.

    From his twitter:
    That is actually illegal isn't it? To purposely leak cc information ?

    but then again, according to him, apparently nothing on the internet is usable in court, 'cause it's not a person (I heard it's a series of tubes though)

    Wow, this won't end well. This guy is digging his own grave and pretty much bragging about it.

    I think this guy is now learning that if you piss off the wrong people online you will regret it.

    I was trolling around on crimecraft gangwars under the username Ocean Stratagy while trying to get the snowballin' achievement and got some laughs.

    My particular favorite though was when I got killed off and "That was for Dave" popped up on the screen.


    If you look at his twitter feed, I don't think he's learning all that fast though. Apparently he didn't send his 120 man pr team after penny arcade because he's giving them a chance to apologize to him.

    Yes it is illegal. He'd go from being a douche to a felon in about 12 seconds.

    Wow, the epic fail...wow.

    I don't even know anything about Penny Arcade but now I want to know more. That Mike guy is a real hero.

    Yes, that is very illegal. I'm not certain if he can get in trouble just for threatening stuff like this but I think word of this needs to get out to anyone who may have bought one of these before he does it. Could someone possibly message Mike and/or Dave?
