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.

What We’re Watching:…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…

Winter is coming and so is the Game of Thrones game!
