Re: The Jim Sterling / Jimquisition Appreciation Thread

A breakdown of the recent Konami mess and evisceration of the company's b.s. in general, definitely worth a watch:

Pretty cool that youtube is finally willing to back Sterling and others in their "fair use" of game footage.

I'm not usually a fan of him, but... this is too perfect.

It's about a widely circulated Play-Asia tweet "explaining" why Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 isn't being released in the U.S. -- trying to rile up GamerGaters and cash in on their RAGE.

Re: The Jim Sterling / Jimquisition Appreciation Thread

When you put it that way...

I just thought it was great satire about companies/personalities that latch onto ridiculous outrage to profit off of idiots. As I recall, PlayAsia was the only retailer to say they'd import the game, to stick it to those damn feminists and boycotters and protesters of the game (that totally exist, right?)

KOTAKU: Angered Game Developer Sues Critic Jim Sterling For $10 Million

On March 16, (developer) Digital Homicide formally filed a lawsuit in Arizona District Court, accusing Sterling of “assault, libel, and slander” to the tune of $10 million. (The only reason “assault” is listed is because libel is, legally speaking, part of a broader category when filing a lawsuit. Ignore that.)

Digital Homicide claims Sterling, whose real name is James Stanton, has “falsely accused [Digital Homicide] and caused damage” to the company. According to court documents, the company is asking for $2.26 million in direct product damage; $4.3 million in emotional, reputational, and financial distress; and $5 million in punitive damage requests. That adds up to $10.76 million, and it’s nothing to scoff at.

Digital Homicide is representing themselves in the lawsuit, and do not have an attorney. They’re currently crowdfunding support for additional help, saying all donations will be kept anonymous.

Co-founder Robert Romine told me the lawsuit’s been in the works for roughly four months, and that Sterling crossed a line with “continued coverage and harassment of every single title we have ever posted.” (Just yesterday, Sterling posted a six-minute video tearing apart their new games.) Romine also said he recently received a package full of feces in the mail, despite “multiple requests private and public to the individual [Sterling] to inform his subscriber base to stop harassing me.”

They're basically suing because he hurt their feelings by calling them out on their shitty games. This suit will be laughed out of court.

The stupid thing about it is I doubt most people would have even heard of their games if it weren't for his videos. If anything it's probably at least driven up morbid curiosity sales. Their output makes those 360 Burger King games look like Game of the Year candidates.
