Cautionary Tale: Man Shoots off Firework from top of his head, dies Instantly

fireworks

I know this doesn’t have anything to do with video games, but I really want you guys to be safe out there when it comes to your life. This story I’m linking involves a 22 year old man who lit a reloadable fireworks mortar tube off the top of his head and died on the spot. The deceased man’s brother described him after the accident:

“There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there,” said 25-year-old Cody Staples, who called it an accident.

Guys, please use good judgment when drinking, lighting fireworks, driving and the such. I would hate to have something like this happen to any of you guys.

In a recent interview with Engadget, Nintendo’s Hisashi Nogami played real coy when asked about Animal Crossing coming to the Wii U.

So my very last question then is: When are we going to see Animal Crossing on Wii U?

Well, that’s difficult for me to answer at the moment! Yup. That’s pretty much all we can say.

What I will say is that you may have seen an announcement recently about anAnimal Crossing product coming out on the 3DS… I can tack that on to the end of my response.
