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.

Sorry All: No EBC This Week :[

Hey all, sad news I'm afraid. DK's computer suffered a serious hiccup and is off being nursed back to health. Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to record EpicBattleCry this week. Hopefully, things will be back to the routine next week. See you then!

What We’re Watching:…

Gamer or QA tester? Early Access (long)

On the 16th of May 2007 the Halo 3 public Multiplayer Beta saw release for members of Microsoft's Xbox Live Subscription service. It contained 3 maps, a handful of game modes to play as well as a selection of the new weapons added in the sequel. Ostensibly the build was disseminated to test the matchmaking system, network loads and game balance but the use of an outdated iteration or 'Build', the heavy marketing and it's bundling with another…

TWIG: Don't Starve, The Wolf Among Us, Broken Sword 5, Ether One (Finished!)
