It's the heartbreaking news of the week. Sega announces the presence of Ryo Hazuki, hero of the unforgettable Shenmue series, in the roster of his fantasy racing game Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing. He'll be available riding his motorcycle or... a forklift. Now this is plain cruel. We've all been expecting the return of Ryo since the tragic death of Yu Suzuki's series in 2001. But not like this !
There are no real conclusions to be drawn from the information in that article, one way or the other. (14 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: You're making a lot of assumptions. You are calling it a "BS" patent based on articles that contain no information on the patent itself, and incredibly sparse details on the lawsuit. (16 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: I know that, but making something like that or the Candy Crush "sugar" patent is BS. Plus if Koei Tecmo is guilty, so are hundreds of western developers. If it is what is implied. (17 minutes ago)
Without reading the patent, or any documents from the suit, you are only left with speculation. Short, obvious answer: because Tecmo is the one infringing. The "concept" isn't the patent... (26 minutes ago)
Capcom Sues Koei Tecmo for 980 Million Yen on Patent Infringement. [url] This is ridiculous. And why not sue other companies? (32 minutes ago)
Not saying you can't like it, i just really don't get it. (40 minutes ago)
