  1. and some highlights: Refutation of CryTek's Claims Claim: CIG was only given permission to make "the game" with CryEngine, selling SQ42 standalone is in violation of this. Defense: The GLA defines "the game" as both "'Space Citizen' and its related space fighter game 'Squadron 42'", with a passage allowing for name changes (Space Citizen > Star Citizen). Additionally, this term does not apply to any games made without CryEngine, and CryEngine is no longer used. Claim: CIG violated the GLA by switching from CryEngine to Lumberyard, they are only allowed to "exclusively" use CryEngine. Defense: The GLA says they are given "exclusive rights to use CryEngine" and the right "to exclusively embed CryEngine in the game". The well-established meaning of this wording is that the right is given only to them (and those subcontracted within the terms), not that they are only allowed to use CryEngine. Claim: CIG is no longer displaying CryTek copyright notices in game, in violation of the GLA. Defense: This obligation only applies if CIG is using CryEngine, which they are not. Claim: Ortwin was employed by CryTek prior to becoming CIG's attorney and co-founder so he had a conflict of interest when negotiating the contract. Defense: Ortwin received a signed waiver from CryTek dismissing any conflict of interest. Claim: Confidential source code was shown on Bugsmashers and disclosed to FaceWare in violation of the GLA. Defense: No defense provided, though FaceWare was after the switch to Lumberyard. Claim: CIG was required to provide any bugfixes they developed for CryEngine up until launch. Defense: No defense provided. Additional Statements The GLA prohibits either party from seeking any damages from one another "except for intentional acts or omissions or gross negligent acts". CIG, not RSI, is the signatory of the GLA, so CryTek committed a legal blunder by pursuing RSI rather than CIG in a number of claims. CIG seeks to have the entire complaint dismissed with prejudice (barring any further related action) on the grounds that none of the complaints are sufficient.

  3. Amazon has enabled "Twitch Prime". You get 1 Free Twitch subscription every 30days if you link your Twitch and Amazon Prime accounts: https://twitch.amazon.com/prime "Ad-free viewing plus a free channel subscription every 30 days" http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/09/amazon-adds-twitch-perks-to-99year-prime-subscription/ "Twitch Prime appears to be enabled for Prime subscribers in the US, UK, Spain, Germany, France, Canada, and Italy. " There's others benefits too like rotating DLC for other games.
  4. Just a friendly FYI: Amazon is now offering its Prime members 20% off all physical game preorders in addition to the usual free release day delivery. This offer extends up until two weeks after release and is only for physical copies of games. Again, this is only for physical copies of any and all games. P.S. This is obviously geared more towards console gamers and frankly, I cannot remember the last game I installed via disc! (Probably Mass Effect 2 circa 2010)
  5. So, I have $50 in my amazon account and I don't know what to get with that during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on Amazon. Preferably SC/videogame related That would be at or below $50. Suggestions?
  6. Hey guys, just as an FYI... Amazon is running a sale on most (if not all) of their current SanDisk memory line, including the some of the SanDisk Ultra II and SanDisk Extreme Pro line(s) of SSD's Here are the links: SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB - $95.99 SanDisk Ultra II 480 GB - $127.99 SanDisk Ultra II 960 GB - $255.99 If anyone has ever used SanDisk SSD's before, I'd love to hear some feedback here (since I'm seriously tempted to buy one for myself at these prices). So far just going off of the reviews (on Amazon) they seem to be a quality product.
  7. For today only as part of the 20th anniversary sale, Amazon is offering a coupon on Roccat products to Prime members. I just picked up a Kone Pure Optical for $37 and the Tyon is $67. Simply click the "clip coupon" button under the price. Final price is shown at checkout.
  8. Sources: Amazon Spent Big Bucks On Crytek's Engine Last year, as the game company Crytek went through near-catastrophic financial struggles, they found help from an unlikely source: the tech giant Amazon. Amazon agreed to a huge licensing deal involving Crytek’s proprietary tech, CryEngine, according to four people familiar with the deal, all of whom spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to speak publicly about this arrangement. Though I haven’t been able to pin down the exact dollar figure—one source said $50 million; another said 70—sources say it was substantial enough to help Crytek recover from the financial difficulties that kept them from paying some staff for months, as we reported last year. Last month, representatives for Crytek teased that the multinational company had struck a big licensing deal that helped save the company, likely a reference to this partnership with Amazon. “It was a huge one, probably the biggest one,” Crytek co-founder Faruk Yerli said in mid-March. “I can’t say anything more in detail, but hopefully we’ll be able to announce it with the partner soon.” It’s unclear what Amazon plans to do with CryEngine, a powerful set of tools that has been used in all of Crytek’s games (Crysis 3, Ryse) and licensed to a number of external developers for games like Turtle Rock’s Evolve and the upcoming Bethesda free-to-play game BattleCry. As a game engine, “CryEngine” is essentially shorthand for a deck of middleware software including a graphics renderer, a physics engine, and other development tools all created by Crytek’s engineers to facilitate game-making. (For an example of what a powerful game engine can do, check out this recreation of BioShockin CryEngine 3.) Amazon may have licensed out the engine to use for their games, or, as some sources have suggested, they may be using it as a baseline to build their own proprietary gaming engine. Whatever the specific details here, this is yet another sign that Amazon has big plans in the world of video games. Last year, the tech giant poached Portal lead Kim Swift andFar Cry 2 designer Clint Hocking to work on top-secret projects that still haven’t been announced. Amazon also purchased Double Helix, the development studio behind 2013’s Killer Instinct. In April of 2014 they launched an Android-based gaming and streaming console, the Amazon Fire TV, but it failed to make much of an impact on the video game world, even after they snagged the infamous Flappy Bird as an exclusive. Most industry observers believe Amazon has grander ambitions for gaming. Representatives for Amazon and Crytek did not return requests for comment.
