Jugger’s playerbase of ruined and exploited female athletes paint the town pink with blood—‘shopped for streaming to all ages. Inside and outside the Arena, perverts, crony capitalists, and cyborg deathknights run the streets.

You can start the smart home of your dreams, the stepping stone to a horrible existence where you scream at the unresponsive devices that have gotten you locked outside (hopefully) or worse, inside your home with no way out!
You can get a cute little wiretap for your home that speaks! It can also provide evidence to court in case it is needed to prove that you did, in fact, abuse your wife before she murdered you with the steak knife you got as a wedding gift!
You can get a smart babycam with unplugged exploits so that paedophiles can watch your cuddly little baby!
You can get a video doorbell that can definitely get hacked to make you think your grandma is visiting instead of a group of burglars!
You can get a smart TV that watches you back while you sleep on the couch, tracks your viewing habits and reports them all in neat little packages back to ad agencies!
