1. Judge allows lawsuit over Killzone to Proceed Dec 18, 2014, 11:58 Prez
 
The suit is being handed by law firm Edelson, who previously took action against EA for failing to provide free digital copies of Battlefield 1943 with every purchase of Battlefield 3, as it was advertised, and it handled the class-action lawsuit against Sega and Gearbox for Aliens: Colonial Marines' less than stellar quality.

And how did those turn out?

I am going to buy two copies of this - one for me to simulate mass murder for my own entertainment, and one to gift to Timmeh so his head can explode.

Do you think it would be wrong of me--since I really do loathe this game and the people who made it--if I bought a copy, just to mod it so that the main character is a naked man wearing only pantyhose--then sent my version of the game to HorrorScope?

Would that be unethical?

That would be awesome!

Greeeeeaaaat. Then when he hunts you down and kills you for your kindness, the Feds will find a copy of the game in his Steam list and have it to blame.

The irony of self-proclaimed righteousness crusader and ruler of what is allowed Timmeh killing me would make it worth being dead.

That said, this will be the new pissing boy for everyone with an axe to bear against gaming in general.

Which is really the primary (only?) argument I've had against this game. The value it adds isn't worth the shitstorm it'll bring. Which doesn't mean I don't think the devs should be allowed to make it, it just means I think they're a bunch of assholes ruining everything for everyone else without really adding anything meaningful or interesting. At least the prior whipping boys like MK and GTA did that.

Yep, exactly.

Quality shouldn't matter. If it is a game and you believe that games deserve protections equal to books or movies then that should be the end of it. To those attacking gaming Doom didn't add anything to society in general, so it ought not exist. They will focus on the violence and only the violence. No game could justify its existence in the eyes of critics of gaming violence. They don't concern themselves with such nuance as context and the like. There are a lot of asshiole developers; the point is that they are part of gaming ust like everyone else.

There is no difference in the amount of violence in this game compared to any other shooter being published today. The only notable part is that it is presented in as tasteless a manner as possible for shock value.

Exactly. What REALLY bothers me is proponents of censoring this game are helping make the case that games do not deserve the same protections as movies or books. I read a book about a young teen who got revenge on those who bullied him by kidnapping and torturing those who wronged him to death all depicted in frighteningly explicit detail. It's still for sale on Amazon. I watched a movie on Netflix called Irreversible where a man is murdered by having his face systematically pulverized by a fire extinguisher as he dies slowly and a woman who is raped for 9 minutes while she tries to scream for help. Neither was a particularly good example of their prospective artforms but there was no outcry from movie or book lovers to censor them from this service or that service.

This game will most likely be a boring one-note affair but that is irrelevant. By gaming fans arguing that it should be censored from Steam or anywhere else is potentially damaging to to gaming because it is opening a MASSIVE can of worms, as well as opening the door for gaming critics to walk right through and assault not just this game, but games that they will undoubtedly view as the same, like Grand Theft Auto, Assassin's Creed, and any other violent game you can name.

Meh...never liked the critics darlings ("The only band that matters") after their first album. Their faux socialist political bent, their later commercial desires.

Give me The Ramones and The Pistols any day

I saw the Ramones at Lalapalooza one year. I honest to God could not tell any of their songs apart. 1,2,3,4 three chords. 1,2,3,4 second song, same as the first. 1,2,3,4 Oooh, I think I've heard this chorus before. 1,2,3,4 Wait, is the the same song again?

Hardcore and extreme metal can be the same way. I find that if you are a fan of the genre you tend to look more for the nuances that separate one song from another (yes, there IS nuance in extreme metal!). I have gotten pretty good at picking out one Cannibal Corpse song from another!

Not in favor of gov't censorship, but totally happy if these assholes went out of business. This game is nihilistic and pointless. I, too, wonder how all this will turn out.

Who cares if its nihilistic and pointless. It's a game. As long as there is no proof (or is there?) that these are neo-nazis, I wish these guys the best of luck with this game. I didnt mind lobbing a molotov cocktail or two into a crowd of civilians in Postal and would like to do so again with PhysX xP

These guys are reportedly followers of a hate group on Facebook in Poland, but whatever. My opinion is that people are getting way too emotionally invested in this; it's a game. That's it.

People are such self-centered, inconsiderate assholes. I have 7 dogs and I fall over myself naking sure they do not bark and bother my neighbors, meanwhile all my neighbors leave their dogs out to bark incessantly at 6am on a Sunday.

Smart that they're NOT making a MOBA, but it's quite hilarious to see how every single dev studio is trying to jump onto the MOBA bandwagon, YEARS after LoL and Dota2 already have that market completely sewn up.


I thought Demigod was a brilliant concept but they completely hosed the launch and the game kind of fizzled and died.

That's a bit of a misleading headline (The lack of an apostrophe in "were" is key!). They origninally were making a MOBA with lots of characters; it has since been returned to cooperative tower defense with the original four classes. I'm still worried about the "Free to Play options" mentioned in the interview however.

Well that was their worst trailer by FAR. Doesn't really make a difference though; I'm still considering buying this game but only to play solo.

Comments like "Only pussies want to play games without dying 5 times a minute! REAL gamers want So-Crucifyingly-Hard-It-Would-Make-A-Grown-Man-Cry difficulty!!" used to piss me off because of their obnoxious elitism, now they just make me chuckle and roll my eyes at the self-important ignorance.
