    This isn't uncommon over that way of the world. If it were over here or in America the family would probably try to sue the internet cafe for allowing it.

    Who'd have thought it. Xbox Kinect & Wii Fat can change gaming for the better after all.

    What kind of internet cafe stays open for 40 hours straight without checking in on customers?

    Seriously, there should be a law preventing players from using the cafe for anything over 8-10 hours

    im not sure there should be a law but you'd have thought the owners would have the sense to kick them out after a certain point
