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!

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.

Do YOU think console makers should keep it simple?
Yes, I need a controller, graphic horsepower, and an 'on' button...that's it 0%
Its not realistic to think mainstream consumers will buy a device that only does one thing0%
I actually like all the entertainment options and hope they can be balanced with gaming0%
Keeping it simple is fine, but if everyone does that then no one stands out; console makers half to also stand apart0%

Living with Tinnitus, the (not so) silent killer

This is a hard article to write. Not necessarily to express what I want to say, but because no matter how one writes an article of this nature it's nigh-on impossible to avoid sounding like a crusade, or a victim-piece or some form of self-indulgence. I can only implore you to read on in trust that I'm writing this article with no other intent than to help ensure that you never develop this condition. It has the power to terrify and debilitate you and it may be more likely to occur than you…

PSN Plus Instant Game Collection (May to July 2014)

Back again to give my impressions of games that I have played (and many I failed to complete) thanks to the PSN plus instant library. 

Stealth Inc.: A Clone in The Dark

The first on a long list of games that I failed to complete. I enjoyed the puzzles, it was well polished for an indie title and it is a perfect fit for mobile gaming. I played it in bite size amounts and ended up logging three or four hours into it. If I had more of an opportunity to…

What I don't get is the pricing structure. 3 dollars for 4 hours of game is absurd. 15 dollars for 90 days of one old game, that you can pretty much buy at that price is also nonsense. How can Sony…Continue
