They should have just paid the guy. Claptrap is central to the BL franchise.

From this article, it would seem that he wants royalties from the previous games to work on BL3...now I wouldn't have an issue with this if he weren't originally a salaried employee of Gearbox at the time of those two games and already getting paid to work there (albeit not as a voice actor).

I said it before, despite Pitchford being Pitchford, Eddings is being nothing but greedy knowing just how important Claptrap is and effectively attempting to make himself indispensable.

Taking Pitchford's side? Wow.

Hell no...neither side is a positive one, but that doesn't mean that Eddings is doing the right thing either.

My understanding was that he asked to be compensated appropriately and even offered do the work for free if Pitchford would apologize for assaulting him.

Right, I'm sure that he wasn't asking for millions of dollars. Given how much money the franchise has made, how much Pitchford himself made, and the Claptrap character's central importance, I don't think he was asking that much. It's just ego on Pitchford's part to say "No." And it means I'm less likely to pick up BL3.

If Randall was a good magician he'd find a way to make himself disappear.

Wow, now it's getting dirty. This will get settled in a courtroom, I guess.  
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!
