Randy decides it would be a good idea to use current events to shill his 20 dollar game (without any discount). For some strange reason he decided to delete the tweet though 🤔

I wonder who it was that went to Randy and said "dude, are you fucking kidding me with this?" Because anyone dumb enough to hit send on that tweet in the first place is dumb enough not to take it down until someone else has to point out how absurd it is to go "hurr durr you wanna shoot cops rn and not get in trouble?"

Gash dammit Randy is so stupid I half expect him to combine Duke with Sonichu and make his own franchise. I'm taken aback about how stupid this was.

Lawbreakers wasn't the thing that did Cliffy B in, it was the BR 80's styled cash grab he tried to make within 4 months using nothing but unreal and unity store assets.

Is there any more info on the shady shit on Radical Heights?

Borderlands has always been dull garbage with a shit art style and insufferable writing. The last good game Bitchford worked on (or, more likely, had other people work on) was opposing forces.
a bl1+bl2 pack was going for free on EGS (i work with ue4 ok) about a week ago and i didn't even bother

“Nothing about Duke Nukem is about profit at this point. It’s about goodwill,” says Pitchford.
Remember that pig cop tweet? That's probably why he deleted it. He doesn't want to be caught in another lie.

Counterpoint:
Having the first image about the latest lawsuit be a Civvie tweet is all too fitting.

That's not how courts work, Randy.

...Who's he even suing here? 3D Realms is a publisher now, there's only one guy left from the old days (the founder) actually running things - with their newest game being done by Interceptor Entertainment, and Bobby Prince is working on Wrack right now; he hasn't been with 3D Realms in years! Why is Pitchford having a hissyfit over this now? Is it because you suddenly can't have your gimped Switch port of an already 4 year old gimped """port""" of the old Duke games that were also previously available via Megaton?

Oh wait, I know why: it's because Prince knows he is fully within his legal right to deny Gearbox further use of his music because they only signed over the rights to the franchise way back when and didn't include any existing contracts in the process, and Randy is just salty that Prince is being difficult and Interceptor/3DR basically flexed and made their own Duke-like without you OR Duke. Lemme put it this way: even if you do win, you're basically doing the equivalent of kicking an old dog to death because he won't play fetch anymore cuz rheir bones have turned into powdered mush, so nobody's gonna side with you. This accomplishes nothing and just makes you look somehow even more spiteful.

He hates it when any employee or old employee is difficult. He's even worse when it comes to contracts he was never a part of. With Borderlands 3 doing shitty he needs lawsuits like this to make some money (least he thinks a lawsuit will make him money).

So looking at this, Randy, much as this hurts to say, may actually be in the right regarding the lawsuit.

When the original owners of Duke were selling off the franchise, their contract specifically said they were handing over everything in relation to the franchise, including music. However, one of the composers has since sued the original owners because he owns the OST and he was not consulted regarding the lawsuit. If the composer wins, then Gearbox will be legally in the right to sue as 3D Realms did not, in fact, hand over the entire franchise meaning they did lie on a contract.

Basically, it's a broken clock situation.

He can always try fleecing Sega again if he's so hard up for cash.
