A Japanese man has been arrested for a most ironic crime -- threatening to blow up Bomberman developer Hudson. 29-year-old Takao Ike was apparently so dismayed at the recent quality of Hudson titles, he felt the only way to get some good games out of the studio was to issue death threats.
"I did it because I posted my demands concerning the games, but the games didn't improve," confesses the suspect.
From October 2008 to January 16 2009, Ike made eleven threats, threatening to kill everyone with his bomb and even demanding a ransom of 80 million yen, to be left for collection at JR Takamatsu Station.
In other news, if I don't get a decent Sonic game, I am going to slit the throat of everyone at Sonic Team and lick their blood off the floor while mewing like a cat. Just saying.
