Joel J. Got an email from the attorneys representing West and Zampella in their lawsuit against Activision. They sent a quote they said we could use...
"I'm really looking forward to having our day in Court", said Zampella. Zampella and West formed Respawn Entertainment last April, 2010 and now have over 60 employees. According to Jason West, " We have new and exciting creativity and development going on at Respawn, to be announced in the future".
Owen G. RESPAWN WORKING ON UNNAMED EXCITING CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT
Kirk H. They have a new and exciting project going on? YOU DON'T SAY
Michael M. Any idea when it will be announced?
Kirk H. I hear it will be announced in... the future.
Owen G. The future, Mike. RTFA.
Joel J. May 7th -- IN COURT
YOUR honour I WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT: THIS IN-GAME TRAILER
COURTROOM ERUPTS IN GASPS AT SHOCKING GAMEPLAY
Michael M. *BANG BANG* PRE-ORDER IN THE COURT
Joel J. haha
Michael M. PRE-ORDER I SAY!!
Kirk H. Note: The plaintiff's testimony is embargoed until June 14th, 9PM Eastern Time.
Joel J. GAVEL GAVEL GAVEL
Owen G. They should do this People's Court style.
Kirk H. ahahahahahahaha
Owen G. "I know you've been sworn, I've read your complaint. Sir, you say your employer didn't pay you per the terms of a contract to make what again? A board game?"
Doug Llewellyn: "Well Mr Kotick, you thought you were in the clear to withhold all those bonuses and fire those guys but Judge Wapner thought differently, how do you feel about his ruling."
The best part of this would be that dramatic pause when they introduce the defendant and then the screen types out "COUNTERSUIT FILED." Even when I was 11 and saw that, I knew, oh fuck, this shit just got real
Joel J. "How guilty do you find the defendant on a 7 to 9 scale."
Kirk H. they would have us poring over courtroom artists' renderings of the screenshots they presented
Joel J. Ha, yes! I want to see artists representations of Call of Duty screenshots.
Kirk H. the artists' renderings would be like, blurry stick people stabbing one another, and blood everywhere
Owen G. the artist's rendering should be in FPS view
like the court personnel, and then a big tablet coming out of the foreground
Michael M. KILLSTREAK: COUNTERSUIT INCOMING
Owen G. with a hand and a pencil
Kirk H. haaaaaa
Michael M. Owen, everyone uses iron sights... you'd have to look straight down the pencil
Kirk H. Without that, he'd just be drawing super inaccurate lines all over the place
Owen G. I hear you can hold down the right stick button to control your breathing when you're erasing
Kirk H. "I feel like every game I play these days, I'm staring down the barrel of a pencil"
Owen G. run 'n pen
