Pipeworks Studio Head Accused of Faking Military Credentials

October 7, 2011 -

According to this IndustryGamers report, Pipeworks studio lead Robert Daly has been called out publically over his claims that he served in the U.S. Special Forces. Pipeworks is the developer behind the Deadliest Warrior video game, which is based on the popular Spike TV show of the same name.

“We heard about Robert Daly just like we do all our Special Forces/ Green Beret frauds,” Jeff Hinton, owner of ProfessionalSoldiers.com, told IndustryGamers. Hinton is a retired Master Sergeant of the United States Army, and a former member of the Special Forces, otherwise known as the Green Berets.

“Mr. Daly said something in an interview to the fact he himself was a former member of the ‘Special Forces.’ We then began our research and found Mr. Daly had been representing himself as a former Green Beret. We then sent for Mr. Daly's military records via the Freedom of Information Act. We requested his records from the NPRC (National Personnel Records Center) and USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command).”

According to Hinton's research, Daly's record doesn't match the numerous claims he has made in multiple interviews. Hinton says that Robert Daly's NPRC military records state he was an imagery analyst. "USASOC has absolutely no record of him in their system.”

“Pretending to be a Special Forces soldier lends credibility in certain industries such as security, counterterrorism, weapons instructors, etc. and in Mr. Daly's case the very lucrative entertainment industry,” says Hinton. “The real Special Forces soldiers aka the 'Green Berets' take a very dim view when an individual uses our title and our reputation, a reputation we forged in blood, for personal or political gain. In Mr. Daly's case it's quite evident he was using our reputation for financial gain.”

Pipeworks is owned by Foundation 9. No one from the company or its parent company has publicly commented on this story.

Neo_DrKefkaRight now from what I seen your tweet and the other guys tweet there are hard feelings. Until we start a dialogue with each other I think it will get worse before it will get better. I hope you guys work something out meet in a neutral stream10/24/2014 - 12:37am
Neo_DrKefkaThanks James. Even if a hot/hard headed person likes me thinks the public needs to sit down and discuss this together. We all might not agree right now but if the public does not start talking to each other we are not going anywhere.10/24/2014 - 12:36am

Neo_DrKefka@Monte A month and a half ago we had a lot of streams about solutions now all the streams are KingofPol styled rants about getting drunk. All Gamergate is about to many is for people to use the movement to jump start careers.10/23/2014 - 7:12pm

MaskedPixelanteApparently Mewtwo is going to be a free download to anyone who bought both versions of Smash 4.10/23/2014 - 5:41pm
TechnogeekYou would also think that if GG gave a shit about journalistic ethics, Game Informer would have been the very first line of their boycott list.10/23/2014 - 5:32pm
MaskedPixelanteRidley confirmed for Smash Wii U... as a stage buddy like the Yellow Devil and flying man.10/23/2014 - 5:31pm
prh99Rather than trying to spin it as some sort of artistic choice, they should just say they don't want to rework the engine to either decouple the mechanics or make them work at 60fps.10/23/2014 - 5:25pm
Matthew Wilsonubisoft is made to look worse now. wiiu smash is 1080p 60fps lol10/23/2014 - 5:02pm
MonteYou would think that, if GG were really about journalistic ethics, their streams would be more conerned with Shadows of mordor(a REAL controversy involing a major publisher) than with the FALSE jounralistic controversy around Quinn10/23/2014 - 4:49pm
Andrew EisenHope so.10/23/2014 - 4:45pm
