    Law Firm Investigating Grounds for 'Joy-Con Drift' Class-Action Lawsuit

    There's a lawsuit a brewin'.

    A law firm in the States are apparently getting ready to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. The potential lawsuit stems from the growing anger over "Joy-Con drift" issues that have plagued the Nintendo Switch controllers since launch.

    If you don't know what Joy-Con drift is, Kotaku actually put up an article about this growing problem just this past week. In short, it's when the Switch detects movement from a stick that the player may not even be touching. For example: If the right stick controls the camera, you may notice...

  • Twitch is Suing Users that Posted Porn, Violence, Racism, and More to Artifact Section

    The company says these users harmed their business.

    In March 2019, a bunch of idiots got together and flooded the Artifact section on Twitch with all sorts of random content. This seemed to include everything from multiple hour loops of "Ayaya" to things like showing full copyrighted Hollywood films like Avengers: Endgame, full episodes of various copyrighted television shows like Malcolm in the Middle, a whole lot of uncensored hardcore porn like raw gachi (NSFW if you decide to search for it), to uncensored footage of the Christchurch mosque terror attack, and an assortment of videos full of extreme racism and misogyny.

    In other words, it was a real shitshow. ...

    Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers


    This past weekend, a little Fortnite themed event was held in Norwich. The event, called Fortnite Live, charged event-goers around $20 (USD) to enter the event that included a whopping four go-karts, a climbing wall, and areas to play Fortnite.

    From multiple accounts, the event was a rather large disaster. The various activities were severely lacking. People had to wait in line in the cold just to get in. In total, around 2,800 people attended the event in which they were mainly charged a lofty fee just to play Fortnite, a free-to-play game. Shortly after the end of the event,...

    Former Employee Files Lawsuit Against Telltale for Breaking Labor Laws

    The recent and very sudden closure of Telltale left many in the gaming industry saddened. Fans were sad because it their favorite franchises may never be finished or given a sequel. More importantly though, hundreds of employees were let go without advance warning and without severance pay.

    This is a big "no-no" when it comes to little things like "laws."

    A former employee of Telltale is now suing the company in a class-action lawsuit. Polygon reports that the lawsuit was filed in a federal court in San Francisco on Monday. It was submitted by Vernie Roberts on behalf of himself and the other workers that were laid off this past Friday.

    PUBG Corp Drops Lawsuit Against Epic Games and Fortnite

    As fast as the PUBG lawsuit came so it went. PUBG Corp. has apparently dropped their lawsuit against Epic Games and the Fortnite Battle Royale game. Bloomberg notes that the lawsuit, which began in January and I could have sworn I put up a news post about, has been withdrawn from the South Korean court system in which it was originally placed. Neither PUBG nor their legal representation have issued a statement as to why the lawsuit was withdrawn but I would assume it was because they realized just how silly that lawsuit actually is. Epic also did not issue any statement about this new development. As Bloomberg con...

  • Bethesda Suing Warner Bros Over Westworld Game Being "Blatant Rip-off" of Fallout Shelter

    Crytek Responds to Cloud Imperium Games' Response to Initial Crytek Lawsuit

    This week we got to see the planned response from Crytek that addresses the recent legal response by Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) to dismiss a lawsuit from Crytek over Star Citizen. I say it's a "planned response" because while this was filed literally yesterday (January 19), the court date isn't until February 9.

    You can see the full legal response via Docdroid. Do note that clicking on that link will open whatever your PDF viewer is. Chrome seems to have one built in already.

    So what exactly does Crytek say in response to CIG's response? Thankfully, the preliminary statements in the filing (found on page 6) gives you a quick overview.

    Star Citizen Developer Responds to Crytek Lawsuit

    A few weeks back, the world learned that Crytek was suing Cloud Imperium Games, the development studio behind Star Citizen. Crytek filed a lawsuit in the California District Court and claimed that CIG has not lived up to the terms of their initial agreement to use CryENGINE for Star Citizen. The claim says that the license covers one game and one game alone, and they feel as though Squadron 42 is a separate game and needs a separate license. Crytek's suit also made the claim that logos, trademark notices, and copyright information were improperly removed from all Star Citizen marketing materials. At the time of the filing, CIG said that the lawsuit was without merit since they ...

    ZeniMax is Now Suing Samsung Over Oculus Tech Used in Gear VR

    ZeniMax has added Samsung to their growing list of entities that they're suing or being sued by over this whole virtual reality technologies thing.

ZeniMax is suing Samsung over their Samsung Gear VR headset because it uses technologies by Oculus VR.
