ah man, thats crazy, trademarking common words is a ridiculous concept to me.
Comment by Amrit Randay on January 21, 2014 at 11:59pm
This just boggles my fucking mind. How is this even legal?! Trandmarking the word Candy, and now Saga?! Oh fuck off with this bullshit.

Fucking honestly... I'm sure Stoic can crush this with very little effort, but what a waste of time. King need people who are far less retarded in charge of protecting their IP, the ones they've currently got are chowing down pretty hard on wall candy.

@Selcinorhc: "I'm sure Stoic can crush this with very little effort".

I'm sorry Selcinorhc you're not allowed to say 'crush' either, please answer directly to your King overlords :P

Sometimes I wan to be a cynic and say "oh, it's just a publicity stunt", then I remind myself all I have to be is a realist and say "they are just idiots". This comment was heavily redacted/modified for the purposes of clarity, legibility, and length. Also because there's literally not enough cuss words to encapsulate my emotions.

Actually, I found a video that did express those emotions. Thanks Jon Stewart. http://j.mp/1duuvks

So .... When will we trademark "Epic" "Battle" "Cry" "Axe" and "Factor" But in all seriousness I find it both funny and sad that they feel a need to trademark everyday words like candy and saga.

LOL!

TAP TAP. There, uninstalled candy crush saga from my phone. Retards...

Really, King.Com?! My head did explode just now. Is there no PR-Managment at King.Com? How can someone be so absolutley stupid and arrogant? I am shocked.

Who gets gaming shame....?

Gaming Shame :  

1) The shame a person feels when they just screwed up and their team has died and lost the match because of it.

2) The shame a person feels when they play a video game, but feel that they should be doing something that would be more productive.

I dont know about you guys, but I run into this more often than not, and its why I dont game as much as I used to.

Like a kid again

Yesterday I drove to my local store to get a new toner for my printer and, as usual, had a look around the gaming section. I was browsing the PS4 games when I heard two kids playing on an exhibition machine i couldn't see around the corner. "What a great game!" "I love this game sooooo much!" "Wow look at that!". The kids where just gasping at what they saw onscreen. "My mother is going to get me this game!" one of them said. "I'm so lucky!!!" The other kid just sighed. "I'm really lucky,…
