Culture Magazine has found evidence to believe that many pro-gamers use marijuana to enhance their abilities. In a recent interview with Gameplayer, Australian World Cyber Games tournament director Alex Walker stated that he’s “seen a number of players at national tournaments who came in ‘baked’ purely so they could play better”. Interesting stuff, but apparently there’s more than just anecdotal evidence to support beliefs that marijuana boosts gaming performance.

The Groningen Mental Enhancement Department in the Netherlands conducted a one year study testing the effects of gaming and cannabis on the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. The study showed that the marijuana test group had memory retention 43% better than that of the control group. One study is far from concrete proof, but those numbers certainly look impressive. Maybe that’s how people beat Ikaruga.

      Okay going back to the SG for PC. If SEGA is worried about piarcy why don’t they make it where if you want it for PC make a special order online cuz it’s less likely a person that does make illegal copies will bother ordering online. Plus they have those FBI anti-piracy things with 4 years in prison or 250,000 dollar fine ( not that much people pay attention cuz people still do it). But still if people are wanting and are offering money (not like they have a choice if they want it) why not for pc
