I call their bluff, but knowing how crazy 'some' people are it wouldn't surprise me if there were one or two crazies out there that would consider murder over a video game.

Either way whether you have the intention or not to make threats is a serious matter, and shows just how attached some people get to things.

Personally its rather pathetic.

I weep for humanity, there have been a lot worse reboots, like M. Night's the Last Airbender, now he should be six feet under -_-

anti-DmC death metal songs? awesome, pretty interested to hear what they are just for a laugh, possibly something like Entrails Ripped From Tam Tam's..... well if you know Cannibal Corpse you'll know where this is going lol.

Wait... The "death threats" they received were parodies ala comics and such? REALLY? I thought someone mailed the NT HQ with a death threat made out of newspaper snippets; now that's something completely ludicrous to even think of doing. Comics are nowhere near as serious. Yes they may depict true intentions/feelings/etc but it's hard as hell to prove anything. I do think it's uncalled for to have real people get killed in a serious sense in entertainment media, but if it's just a parody, you'd be going against quite a few laws if you prevent people from expressing themselves freely.
inb4 someone uses some alien "logic" and completely misunderstands/misinterprets what I said.

And the death metal hate song was hilarious.

I doubt this is that serious a matter.

Death...comic? Hahahaa! I think they're ok. Really. I mean....really? Hahahahaaa!

As for the anti-DmC song, I think they should work it into the actual game somewhere. Maybe that's just cuz I'd like to hear it though :P

What? I liked season 3. I strongly disagree. M. Night's "Last Airbender" had this

You do understand that by the time Zuko and Azula fought he was more powerful then her and that he fight with her was the pelican of half the arcs in the series. By having him not completely crush Azula and having Katara come to steal the spot light like the glory hog Sue that she is they ruined the story. This screwed up Zuko's, Azula's, Ursa's and Iroh's stories up to the point that they might as well not have been in the series to begin with.

That's not even going to the whole Aang moving out of the friend zone during the last five seconds of the series or the Avatar suddenly being an oppressor along or any of the other mindless changes and bad writing that happened in book 3.
