    Time to take Wolfenstein off my wishlist as my official Zenimax boycott starts now. If it's proven that they are actually in the right on this then I'll put it back on my list.

    Zenimax screwed up ESO and now they need some form of income. Doesn't surprised me, but I hope they lose. As someone who has played ALL the Elder Scrolls games, zenimax deserves to go under for the money grab that they turned ESO into. Now they are going after companies that are actually innovative and if they succeed, innovation will fail. Whether you're interested in Oculus or not, it will be a revolution in gaming as we know it.

    I honestly would like to see Zenimax go down for screwing up my favorite gaming series of all time. Don't take this out on those trying to innovate, take it out on those trying to stifle it.

    I saw this coming from miles away. ZeniMax smells a big bonus payday and they want in on the action, personally I hope they wind up on their arses.
  9. This is what will happen when ZeniMax goes to lawyers. The lawyers will attempt to string together a number of potential earners: -

    "seeking unspecified actual damages, restitution, disgorgement, unjust enrichment, equitable relief, punitive and exemplary damage, statutory damages, enhanced damages and all other relief to which they believe they are entitled to"

    which covers pretty much anything that they can get, using a "make it up as you go along methodology".

    Sounds like trolling for cash to me... but lets see what the court says.
  11. Look on the positive side. It might make everybody think that the Oculus VR is the bollocks. FaceBook shares will then go up. Plus we get some sexy stories about the progress of the legal case.
