the grab your pitchforks, Pitchford's a pedophile titles and headlines. anyone who reads further will realize it's empty provocation. I think there is a way to report on this without resorting to exaggeration and clickbait.
Yeah just saying its possible, doesn't make a ton of sense. There's some stretching here and there surrounding the bonus, but calling porn underage and then trying to claim you weren't being literal would be stupid.
But this guy was good buds with Randy Pitchford, so It's hard not to considerr that he might be full of shit.
edit: And apparently that's exactly what Gearbox/Pitchford are telling the media and are filing a sort of countersuit on, claiming he's using the quotation marks to decieve.
Doesn't seem like this guy is a very good lawyer. If he claims all this and has nothing to back it up hes in some deep shit. Honestly it seems like he is just throwing a bunch of shit at the wall and seeing what sticks. People throw the underage accusations because they know whether the people did them or not they will be stuck with the stigma either way.
The way he describes it (with pretty vivid imagery) is that he saw a video, suspected the 'fluid spray' wasn't real, bought the video from her site, discovered that it was indeed trickery (or 'magic'), and had it on the USB.
I doubt he would bring any spotlight onto those events by recalling it if something illegal was involved.
I think Randy Pitchford is a complete ass, even before this article and rather the allegations are true or not. I listened to the IGN podcast that deals with talking to devs in the industry and seems like such a tool.
edit: In randy's defense (which i hate to say and am about to throw up) the underage pornagraphy thing should be innocent until proven guilty. I mean, the counsul dude is obviously a sleeze ball and may just be trying to throw as much dirt into this lawsuit as possible.
another edit: ok read more of the story and yeah randy seems like a sleezball (more so than i originally believed him to be)
This thread is laughable and it's exactly why this lawyer worded his claim exactly the way he did, because he knew people would lazy/dumb enough to immediately jump on the Pitchford is a pedo bandwagon without bothering to understand anything about the case or reality. Watching porn doesn't make you a fucking pedophile, even 'barely legal' porn.
I can’t believe he went on that podcast and said what he said. Jeez oh weez. Not much of a filter on him. I’m surprised he still has his job, and also surprised no one made a fuss of that podcast interview.
I’m not a fan of his. I’ve had a very low opinion of him since colonial marines.
