Brazilian Man Holds Woman Hostage For 10 Hours... With A Sega Light Gun

A man looking to collect on a debt broke into the house of 60-year-old woman in the Brazil's Federal District, holding her hostage for ten hours on the business end of a Sega Light Phaser.

The Light Phaser, the light gun that shipped with the Sega Master System, must be fairly common in Brazil, considering how incredibly popular the 8-bit console was in the country—it was one of Sega's strongest markets.

Fortunately, the man released his hostage, unharmed, after negotiating with police. That means we can all laugh about it now! In fact, heroic tipster Gustavo even gave us a free joke: "Of course he would not be able to hurt his victim - we can see that the gun was NOT plugged into the console." ROFL!!

    Game on motherfuckers

    Now that's what I call the "lighter" side of the news.

    I can only help wondering if the SNES Scope 6 will be used in Afghanistan next.

    No, the use of the SNES scope 6 would violate the Geneva Convention clause which specifies that weaponry must be intended to kill and not maim or cause undue suffering or excessive collateral damage to the non-combatants in contested regions.
