Silicon Knights Ordered to Recall and Destroy Too Human, X-Men Destiny

Following the loss of a counter-suit from Unreal Engine developers Epic Games, struggling Silicon Knights has been forced to recall and destroy several titles.

In 2007, Silicon Knights filed a lawsuit against Epic Games for failing to improve upon the engine that the company had spent significant money to license, essentially sabotaging the efforts of other developers to utilize this engine. Epic Games filed a counter-suit shortly after which accused Silicon Knights of deliberately copying the Unreal Engine code in order to create their own game engine, which was subsequently used to produce the games Too Human and X-Men Destiny, as well as within the yet to be released games The Box/Ritualyst, The Sandman, and Siren in the Maelstrom.

The courts, as you might have guessed, found in favour of Epic Games. On top of paying a settlement in the region of $9.2 million, Silicon Knights have been ordered to recall every unsold copy of Too Human and X-Men Destiny and destroy them. They must also destroy the existing code for their unreleased titles. The court has given them a deadline of December 21st to comply, by which point all copies of both games will be off the shelves permanently.

If you've ever wanted to play either title -- now's the time!

TimeSplitters Fans Start A Petition For A Fourth Game

Even though Crytek told fans to not get their hopes up, a new Facebook petition for a new TimeSplitters game has emerged.

image

The Facebook group known as "100,000 Strong for TimeSplitters 4" is trying to convince Crytek to continue developing the TimeSplitters 4 game that was put on hold. The group hopes to get at least 100,000 "likes", but they don't want to stop their.

Here is a message from the group's Facebook page:

We are a group trying to convince Crytek to finish developing TimeSplitters 4! Even if it means doing a Kickstarter. (I'd fund that!).. Note: Even though the page is to gain 100k, we'll probably need much more. So dont give up at 100k!


Petitions can be a powerful influence that fans send towards a developer, so "like" the group if you want to see a new TimeSplitters game.

Microsoft Will Not Show At Gamescom Or TGS This Year

Microsoft is not participating in Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show this year.

image

Larry Hryb (AKA Major Nelson on XBL) announced this morning that Microsoft is skipping Gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show this year in order to focus on other events. Here is Hryb's full statement:

As you saw at E3, we have a solid line-up of games launching this holiday, along with other entertainment experiences. We've changed our approach a little, though. This year, Xbox will be focusing on smaller, more localized promotions and experiences for press, partners, retailers and customers around the world. Which means that as you might have seen on some of the news sites today, we won't be taking part in gamescom or Tokyo Games Show this year.

Both are still important shows for the industry, and we do wish the organizers well.


Gamescom and TGS are two of the largest video game events each year. Hopefully Microsoft makes up for their absence in both events.

EA Is "The Worst Company In America" for 2012

And the winner of the Golden Poo is...

image

The website Consumerist.com recently opened a poll up for their readers to vote on the worst company in America for 2012. The final round of voting consisted of Electronic Arts and Bank of America. In the end, EA took home the Golden Poo Award Companies that were in the poll included: AT&T, Walmart, Comcast, PayPal, and many others.

Gamers must be truly upset with EA's actions recently. For a video game publisher to beat out a popular bank like Bank of America is sort of a big deal. 250,000 people voted for this poll, so calling this a "fluke" would not be accurate. For the gamers asking, "How is EA a bad company?" The Consumerist does a good job of summarizing gamer's thoughts:

"There have even been numerous accusations that EA and its ilk deliberately hold back game content with the sole intent of charging a fee for it at a later date. It's one thing to support a game with new content that is worth the price. It's another to put out an inferior and occasionally broken ח product with the mindset of 'ah, we'll fix it later and make some money for doing so.' "

EA puts out a lot of games each year as a publisher. Some of the games are very popular releases. With this recent wave of bad-reputation, they may have to change some things to keep their fans holding on.
