Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

October 7, 2010 -

Mobigame, sees an opening and it may take it. At least that's what one of the many companies targeted by Edge Games over the use of the word "Edge" says. The developer who created a game for the iPhone called "Edge," tells Eurogamer that it may seek legal action against Tim Langdell and his company.

"It is not over yet," Mobigame CEO David Papazian told Eurogamer.net. "Now we will continue to support EA in the battle against Tim Langdell. The next step is to have all his trademarks cancelled by the USPTO."

"After that he will not be able to damage anyone, he added."

"We are still thinking to start a legal action against Langdell to claim a reparation for the prejudice," Papazian claimed.

There are plenty of other developers, publishers, and video game accessory makers that may line up against Edge Games in court, such as NIS America, who had to license the word edge for its PS3 RPG Cross Edge..

Eh... while I am glad Langdell has finally been stopped..... Mobigames was also a bad actor.  A more popular bad actor, and a bad actor fighting a 'bad guy'.. but they were still dicks who only got away with it because they were dicks to someone that the community does not like.

And for the same reason I dispise the schoolyard bully who is careful to only pick on the unpopular kids.. I have grown to dispise Mobi too.

I honestly don't understand this.  If someone colossal jerk came to you and tried, at every turn, to destroy your livelihood in an extortion scheme, I'm guessing you wouldn't react very well to it, either.

When looking at all the things MobiGame did, exactly what did they do that was so dickish?  They were trying to fight back against a guy who is about to be tried for fraud, as well as a known liar, extortionist, and stalker.  Anything that Langdell says MobiGame did to him has to be thrown out the window at this point, doesn't it?

Re: Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

What you are saying make absolutely no sense to me, I plainly don't get it.

Maybe because I know all the stuff that Tim Langdell did (like, don't pay developers, and brag in the office about how he don't paid someone... Or get into a flaming ball of fail in england, and move to the US so he could continue with his nefarious schemes. Oh, and he has a restraining order against him, for stalking a actress that hired him to make her webpage... Considering how much his company webpages sucked, I think that actress don't got her money valued... In fact Tim Langdell also made the current IGDA site, visit it, and see how great work he did...)

You know GP, I'm not trying to be a pain or anything, but that first paragraph is really messed up. I'm not just talking about a minor grammer error or typo, it looks like the first few sentences got scrambled a bit.

Tim Langdell is going down in a flamming ball of fail!

Finally. I hope that the rest of the companies that Langdell harassed in the last years take the next step against him.

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Andrew EisenIanC - I assume what he's getting at is the fact that once PS3/360 development ceases, there will be no more "For Everything But Wii U" games.04/23/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew EisenMatthew - Yes, obviously developers will eventually move on from the PS3 and 360 but the phrase will continue to mean exactly what it means.04/23/2014 - 5:45pm
IanCAnd how does that equal his annoying phrase being meaningless?04/23/2014 - 5:09pm
Matthew Wilson@Andrew Eisen the phrase everything but wiiu will be meaningless afer this year becouse devs will drop 360/ps3 support.04/23/2014 - 4:43pm

Andrew EisenI love RPGs but I didn't much care for Tales of Symphonia. I didn't bother with its sequel.04/23/2014 - 11:21am
InfophileIt had great RPGs because MS wanted to use them to break into Japan. (Which had the side-effect of screwing NA PS3 owners out of Tales of Vesperia. No, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?)04/23/2014 - 10:52am
RedMageI'm still disappointed the 360 never broke into Japan either. It had a bevy of great RPGs in the late 2000s.04/23/2014 - 9:48am
