Yesterday, a court dismissed game developer Digital Homicide's $US10 million ($13 million) case against YouTube critic Jim Sterling. Fortunately for those of us who write about video games, Sterling's scathing critique of Digital Homicide's game Slaughtering Grounds won't create precedent for developers slamming critics with million-dollar lawsuits.
It's been a dramatic handful of days for Steam. Infamous shovelware developer Digital Homicide sued 100 Steam users for $US18 ($24) million and subpoenaed Valve for their information, at which point Valve booted them and all their games from the service. The worst part? This was all painfully avoidable.
When we last saw the game studio Digital Homicide, they were suing game critic Jim Sterling for $US10 million ($13 million), charging him with libel and slander for harshly criticising their games. Now they're pursuing legal action against 100 anonymous Steam users, calling them a "hate and harassment group" in recent court filings.
