Depeche Mode Man Ordered to Court over WoW

Ah, World of Warcraft, one of those popular games which encourages you to plug yourself into a basement computer and only come up when your supply of Doritos has run out. At which point you start to think of yourself as an orc. Now a WoW player is suing the games creators because, he alleges, the game left him feeling divorced from real life… which, let’s face it, is rather believable given some of the players we’ve met. So what’s the music tie-in? The lawsuit asks Depeche Mode musician Martin Gore to appear in court because his music reveals him to be an expert in alienation! He’s also asked Winona Ryder to do the same thing. No one seems to think there’ll be a victory as the guy behind it has sued other games firms and failed before.
