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.

Re: Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

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

Re: Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

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 EisenBullying resulting from criticizing fiction is not the critic's fault. Fiction is not always unrealistic. Neither begets sexual objectification.02/27/2015 - 11:56am
Andrew EisenSubjective? Sure, but that doesn't matter because no one's trying to regulate sexual objectification. Plenty of room to criticize sexual objectification in multiple forms of media (like Sarkeesian already does). 02/27/2015 - 11:56am
ConsterDon't 'beauty rags' already get plenty of criticism?02/27/2015 - 9:02am
ZippyDSMleeEh still rather subjective… the haters would be better off going after teen and beauty rags and magazines than fiction, fiction follows reality and going after fiction tends to turn into a bullying fest’s… plus its fiction its unrealistic to start with….02/27/2015 - 1:10am
MechaTama31That's a pretty difficult anatomy to break.02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
MechaTama31"the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy" <-- I'm sorry, but we are talking here about the woman who can roll up into a little ball and live to tell the tale, yes? ;)02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
Andrew EisenAs far as examples that could be culled from female game characters though, that one's pretty mild.02/26/2015 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenNot as much the heels or the suit in and of themselves but certainly the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy to show off her lady bits.02/26/2015 - 9:10pm
E. Zachary KnightWell, Samus's heels are certainly impracticable, but I wouldn't really call her Zero suit objectified. I don't really feel that the new Lara Croft is objectified either, but that is my subjective opinion.02/26/2015 - 9:08pm
Andrew EisenTomb Raider: No but we haven't seen much of anything yet. Samus: Yes.02/26/2015 - 9:07pm
ZippyDSMleeWould you call the new tomb raider objectified? WOuld Samus Aran from the new Smash bros be objectified?02/26/2015 - 9:02pm
WonderkarpI'm hoping they put the rest of the comic book ghostbusters in there. Ortiz and Rookie(From GB the game)02/26/2015 - 8:38pm
Wonderkarpghostbusters board game is doing great. getting close too a 3rd extra playable Character. Ron Alexander.02/26/2015 - 8:37pm
Andrew EisenSmurfette is not subjective. If there's more than one female character, it's not Smurfette. Anyway, as with everything on the list, Smurfette is, in and of itself, not necessarily a bad thing.02/26/2015 - 8:32pm
Andrew EisenI think there's 5 women (out of 15, I think) but other than one being a bit more "hippy" than the others, they pretty much all have the same body type. Especially when compaired to the huge variety of male body types.02/26/2015 - 8:31pm
Wonderkarpso I dont see Smurfette as a bad thing. Unless like all your female characters are Smurfette. remember the Smurfs also had Sassette02/26/2015 - 8:29pm
E. Zachary KnightOne good example of the larger issues is one Anita used in the presentation, Blizzard's Overwatch game. There are a dozen men in the game with a dozen body types. But there are only 4 women with 2 body types, but 3 of them have the same one.02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
Wonderkarpthe smurfette thing is subjective to how many female characters you have. Take Sonic for example. You have Amy, who is obvious smurfette, but there's several other female characters now without that. Including the original animated seriescomics with Sally02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
E. Zachary KnightAE. Very true. I think that is where I was going, but it didn't come out right. Jack Harkness is sexy but not objectified. Whereas, a women would have to be objectified in order to be "sexy" in most games.02/26/2015 - 8:26pm
E. Zachary KnightAnd as Andrew pointed out, there is a big difference between a sexualized man, and an idealized man. But for some reason, there is no distinction between women in games. For the most part.02/26/2015 - 8:25pm
