    Using his usual handle Frogboy and promoting his new game himself: Fallen Enchantress

    Yeah... I'm not sure I'm happy to discuss a game when the publicly available elements of a related court case are so obnoxious.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    It damages a person when he kicks a bad dog. I'm not calling Brad a "bad dog" at all, but several of you seem to think he is, so it applies. It's not just the dog that gets hurt when everyone groups up and starts kicking.

    That's the question that usually begins a circle kick. You can use that question about anyone, a Mr. X, and they'll be more hated than they were before the question was asked. I've been to High School.

    You only have to read stuff written by Brad himself to conclude that he's an enormous piece of shit. Not even talking about his current legal problems and the emails quoted there, just his old blog.

    An incredibly arrogant prick who allegedly sexually harassed a woman (who in turn allegedly tried to sabotage Elemental's PR/launch and who allegedly ran a business out of the office) and who generally enjoys gaming and likes giving 4x players what they want. His company also was one of the first big pushers of DRM-free* gaming.

    Basically: A much less successful version of CliffyB who focused on 4x and AI rather than FPS and level design. And who has yet to "forsake" the fans, even if Elemental was kind of a flop.


    Or, as I like to think of it: The alleged molester who converted my purchase of Sins and the expansions into Sins Trinity after seeing me ask if it was possible on the forums.

    For the record: As far as his role in gaming goes, I like Wardell. Sure the guy is abrasive as crap and reeks of sleaze, but at least he knows how to massage my 4x-spot to climax.

    *: The games themselves were DRM-free. But if you wanted patches, you had to register a serial in some form.
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    He's the guy that created the Gamer's Bill of Rights. Then, after flopping two games in a row (Demigod and Elemental) with some drama "entitlement" episodes each, he made everything in his hand to wipe it from the internet. Then sold his company and digital distribution software, Impulse, to Gamestop, making a lot of users lose their games without previous warning. Vamos, un Rajoy de la vida.

    The sex harassment drama is the one I don't really care about, I'm far from a White Knight.
