(Good) Video games are challenging. Most of them don't try to break your limbs though. Apparently though, one of them does a pretty good job. Featured above amidst a sea of textual insults, all 150 Arm Spirit
machines (by Atlas) are currently being recalled. Why you ask? Well, three rambunctious Arm Spirit
players broke their arms while struggling for power with the arm jutting out of the machine.
Sadly for us over in the United States, the game was only distributed in Japan. Geez, they get everything don't they? Disappointing...but that's not what we're here for! We're here to get justice for those who injured themselves in the arduous adventure of beating that one game with a fake arm coming out of it!
Atlus spokeswoman Ayano Sakiyama said, "The machine isn't that strong, much less so than a muscular man. Even women should be able to beat it." Oh, I get it now. So you're a sexist company as well? Women have plenty of muscle from vacuuming and cooking all day. Just because someone is a woman doesn't mean that they shouldn't be able to beat an arcade game. In fact, the three people who broke their arms probably were women. You know..brittle bones. At least the devilish, sexist machines reign over the Japanese has come to an end.
