Update on Penny Arcade.
Seems the douche realises how stupid he has been.

That was a most epic line near the end. Or rather paragraph... yeah, whole of that last chunk was epic.
Yup, I was literally laughing at my computer screen while reading that last bit. Good for him not backing down. Too many people are willing to accept a heartless apology that are made out of necessity, not sincerity.

The fact this Paul guy has been backtracking at whom he sees as necessary, while leashing out at others, shows how insincere he is. I really hope his family, his children, and his run-on sentences are dragged through the mud. It takes a special type of asshole to marry this man and I feel they are almost as responsible.

Am I the only one who's wondering what the hell is up with that controller? Yeah? Okay then.
It´s a controller made for people that got deformed hands(from my understanding). Gonna assume that was what you meant.
Sorta. Just confused about the shape and the weird attachments. Though if it's for deformed hands, then I'll assume that it makes sense.

Just a heads-up, that link I sent you might be someone trolling for the sake of it. If it is, that's my bad.

It looks legit. If it turns out to be fake, I'll update accordingly.

to be fair, its hard to misspell some words consciously, so I can see why someone would have trouble typing out "marketting" when any basic spell check would smack you in the testes just for trying it.
Fixed! Thanks, folks. And, yes, it's hard to consciously misspell stuff sometimes.

@JDawgMadden It's a god sturdy product that works. It lets you rule at pew pew shooters.

I have got to say, despite everything that's happened, this is my favourite story this year. This fucker got what's coming to him and Mike managed to scare the fuck out of me while I agree with him completely. Seriously, I just love this far too much than I should.

Calumon: Is this a happy ending? I can't tell. :S

Damn...they've got a good impersonator then. Stratagy hasn't posted for hours now. Are we sure it's not him?

(And the original thread is locked from overuse I think? Can't get into it.)

I say who cares? Either way its bloody humorous, so I say revel in it. And give the man a cookie if its fake.

Pretty sure. If only because that account has 0 followers and none of the tweet history of stratagy. The fact that there is no space between the punctuation marks in that new twitter also gives it away as being a fake; see the fraudulent Brandon email and all of paul's emails from before to see what I mean.

So let me get this straight...

1. Terrible PR
2. Plagiarizing and copyright infringement
3. Steroids
4. Piracy
5. Lied about these "big connections" he had.
6. Failure to send products to the promised date and illegally charging the customers FULL before product is even shipped.

Have I got it down pretty much? Is it possible for this guy to get some serious jail time? In a span of a few hours or a day, this guy went from living the BS american dream to having his entire life ruined by the Internet.

Still say to give the Oceanmaketting (Mark Ett Ocean) dude and him a cookie though for maximum lulz.

Eh... it's a slow news day and Mike Krahulik is projecting like crazy in that follow up piece. Time to be the bigger man.

The guy sent some rude emails so now the vengeful internet will destroy his business and his life. Hopefully they'll back off before he ends up swinging from a ceiling beam somewhere, although I'm sure there are people out there who've blown this enough out of proportion that they'd think it was deserved.

The GoDaddy thing? That was good. That was the internet being a channel for a popular movement to take meaningful action directed at a big company that should have known better. This? This is just some poor schmuck being persecuted because the internet was bored and he is an easy target.

Been following this for quite a while...and it is simply beautiful, it's a marvel too read everything he's done wrong. It's like watching a train wreck gone horribly, horribly wrong. So horrible and bad that you can't look away.

I suggest you go back to TheGuy(wantsobe) and my post before making a completely incorrect statement like this. He did more then just give terrible PR to his company and act VERY unprofessional to his customers, he lied, he cheat, and stole on many different occasions. This douche is going to face many charges and will be sued to oblivion that his jailtime clock will look like a freaking phone number.
