I’m not sure how many times this has shown up on a classifieds website before but once again the haunted Ms. Pac-Man arcade machine is up for grabs on Craigslist Boston. There is no witty commentary to go along with it, just that the machine is haunted and the seller wants it out of their house by tonight so someone else can pick it up and see if there really is a ghost (well, four ghosts to be precise) in the machine or not. At least it’s a free game but chances are that it’s pretty beat up but it’s hard to say since there is no picture provided by the seller. I always hate that, especially in this time where practically everything mobile and electronic has a camera built into it.
So, who wants to bet how long it will be before we see this again? I have my doubts about it, even if it’s the same machine but we’ll have to wait and see. If it’s really that evil I imagine that someone would just burn it (like a witch, har har) or shred it or something to ‘finish her’. I am surprised that no one has found those Berzerk machines that killed players off and is auctioning them, of course proving such a thing (that it was the official Machine of Death) would be next to impossible to do (although two Berzerk players did die in separate incidents when playing the game).
