Guy Marries Video-Game Character

Ever wish that sexy night-elf was a real person, so that you could, um, take her out on a date? You're not the first guy to lust after a video-game character--think of all the teenage years lost over Lara Croft--but a man in Japan was the first guy to marry one. A 27-year-old college student, known as "Sal9000," married Nene Anegasaki, a character in the Nintendo DS game "Love Plus," in November 2009. The ceremony was livecast on Nico Nico Douga, a popular Japanese video-sharing Website.
