Chinese gamers shut down the relaunch of "Hot Blooded Legend," a beloved, classic game, by massing their avatars at city gates and stopping others from entering. They were upset that the relaunch didn't do justice to the original.

He told her that they will go to Beijing to watch the Olympics. Then he took her into the city and bought her a purple Taoist robe.
