Matthew Pyke, a 20 year-old Advance Wars fanatic, was found dead on Friday. Pyke ran an Advance Wars website under the alias of “Shade.” Police have been investigating the incident and have began to surmise that there is a possibility that another person Pyke had come into contact with through Advance Wars – or other video games – may have attacked him. “A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said officers were investigating his links with other online gamers but stressed it was just one of a number of leads being pursued.”
