King.Com aka Makers Of Candy Crush Saga Are Idiots

King.com are idiots. I say they are idiots because of this article from Kotaku which you can read here: http://kotaku.com/candy-crush-saga-makers-go-after-the-banner-saga-for-1506188958?utm_campaign=Socialflow_Kotaku_Facebook&utm_source=Kotaku_Facebook&utm_medium=Socialflow

The thing about the word saga is what really gets me. Apparently these morons don't realize that the word saga actually comes from Old Norse so it is complete bullshit that they're trying to copyright a word that doesn't even belong to them originally in the first place.

There's also the factor of how is their game similar to Banner Saga? One is a puzzle game that isn't that great and is clearly rigged with the insane difficulty of the levels to try and coerce players to buy their boosts so they can line their pockets with money. The other is a pretty cool looking turn based RPG with Vikings and lots of interesting Viking adventures. NOT the same thing.

While King.com may think this is promotion and advertising it's not. This makes them look like the giant jerks they really are, not to mention the waste of time and resources for a lawsuit that is just plain stupid. What's next? Trying to gain patent rights for the air we breathe? I'm sick and tired of greedy game corporations like this one that just try to squash everyone in their path all for the sake of their ego and greed.
