Did Somebody Hack Your Virtual Breasts?

Illustration for article titled Did Somebody Hack Your Virtual Breasts?

I can't stop thinking about a story that broke earlier this week about a bug that reduced the breast sizes of tons of large-boobed avatars in the MMO "Age of Conan" (you can see before and after pictures here). No word on whether the boobs have been re-inflated, nor any real explanation of how it happened beyond some hand-waving about patches and "morph values" for body parts. My theory is that it was actually a gang of feminist modders who infected the MMO with properly-sized boobies. [Kotaku]

@Ed Grabianowski: If you look in the forums, you'll see the (generally humorous) outrage came from men playing female avatars.
