A Kotaku 4-Player: Pre-Order In The Court!

Joel J.
Got an email from West and Zampella's PR firm talking about how they're getting ready to go to court against Activision. They sent a quote they said we could use:

"I'm really looking forward to having our day in Court", said Zampella. Zampella and West formed Respawn Entertainment last April, 2010 and now have over 60 employees. According to Jason West, " We have new and exciting creativity and development going on at Respawn, to be announced in the future".

They should do this People's Court style.

ahahahahahahaha

"I know you've been sworn, I've read your complaint. Sir, you say your employer didn't pay you per the terms of a contract to make what again? A board game?"

Doug Llewellyn:
"Well Mr. Kotick, you thought you were in the clear to withhold all those bonuses and fire those guys but Judge Wapner thought differently, how do you feel about his ruling."

The best part of this would be that dramatic pause when they introduce the defendant and then the screen types out "COUNTERSUIT FILED." Even when I was 11 and saw that, I knew, oh fuck, this shit just got real

Joel J.
"How guilty do you find the defendant on a 7 to 9 scale."

Kirk H.
they would have us poring over courtroom artists' renderings of the screenshots they presented

Joel J.
Ha, yes! I want to see artists representations of Call of Duty screenshots.

Kirk H.
the artists' renderings would be like, blurry stick people stabbing one another, and blood everywhere

Owen G.
the artist's rendering should be in FPS view

like the court personnel, and then a big tablet coming out of the foreground

with a hand and a pencil

Kirk H.
haaaaaa

Michael M.
Owen, everyone uses iron sights... you'd have to look straight down the pencil

Kirk H.
Without that, he'd just be drawing super inaccurate lines all over the place

Owen G.
I hear you can hold down the right stick button to control your breathing when you're erasing

Kirk H.
"I feel like every game I play these days, I'm staring down the barrel of a pencil"
