Digital Homicide Drops $18 Million Lawsuit Against Steam Users

/ 2 years ago


Things didn’t go as planned for Digital Homicide as the game developer has been forced to drop the $18-million lawsuit Digital Homicide had launched against Steam users – but after the recent months of activity around the game studio and their critics, it isn’t that surprising. The terminology game studio should be taken lightly here, but it isn’t false. They did create games and released them, but they weren’t very good nor popular. The games seemed like they were created for only one thing, get money from unsuspecting gamers the quickest way possible and with as little effort as possible.

Anyway, back to the story at hand. Two weeks ago, Digital Homicide decided to launch a lawsuit against 100 users who left the developer’s games negative reviews. They actually tried suing Steam users for being mean about the developer and its games, but Valve acted quickly in kind and banned all Digital Homicide content from the Steam platform for “being hostile.”

That was too much for the small company and they have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against their users last week and it was approved on Friday. The reason for this? Digital Homicide said that their business had been “destroyed” and that it had rendered them unable to continue pursuing the lawsuit.

“The case dismissal was only due to financial reasons caused by the removal of our games. I believe the case was very solid. There were in excess of 140 false statements by the 11 Steam users, tens of thousands of posts harassing myself and my customers, three direct interference with written contracts with third parties by Steam users (some of which were competitors), and much more. A combined in excess of 25 reports were filed against the worst users of the 11 with no resolutions being found.”

The above quote is a small part of the rant coming from Digital Homicide’s James Romine, “As far as Digital Homicide? It’s destroyed. It’s been stomped into the ground from a thousand directions and use is discontinued. I’m going back into the workforce and watching what’s really going on.”

It couldn’t really have come as a surprise that it would end this way and while I feel a little bad for Digitial Homicide, they had it coming. They flooded the Steam platform with shoddy games in order to abuse the trading system for more profit, and then lashed out users and even sued them when that didn’t work. Oh well, they’re a goner now and we can move on and forget that we ever heard the name Digital Homicide.

    If this was a CSI episode.

    – Based on latest evidence, it’s safe to come to the conclusion that Digital Homicide committed suicide by going against the Steam users.

    Case closed.

      You are a fool if you think they are gone.

      The probably went back to the drawing board, creating name aliases and a different company name, and going back to making 50 million shit games.

      They already have gone by different company names. What’s a few name changes for a fly by night shop?

        Do you over analyze and cover all possible scenarios when you just try to post something funny?

        • Nope.avi says:

          1. I wasn’t being funny.
          2. If you are referring to yourself, ‘Digital Suicide’ is a joke that was made since this first started. You aren’t original at all.

          • 12John34 says:

            You aren’t original either. You think you are the first person on the internet who feeds on insulting others with seemingly serious, actually arrogant, messages? They are called trolls, in case you don’t know that. And you are trolling. But I’ll be kind to throw you one more cookie. It seems to give meaning to your life. Of course I wasn’t talking about you. You aren’t trying to be funny, you are trying to be annoying. And I have no obligation to know what every person on the planet posted about this story, and I am not trying to be original. So stop making obvious comments thinking you are posting something clever. The only thing you have done in both posts was to be rude and boring.

          • Nope.avi says:

            Hey guess what? I simply gave my opinion. I wasn’t trying to be clever or anything.

            You want to talk about no life? Let’s start with your over 5000 posts on disqus since 2014 compared to my 261 since 2013. Take your over sensitive ass and piss off.

          • 12John34 says:

            You didn’t… simply gave your opinion. And I can’t possibly know how many accounts you have on disqus or elsewhere.

          • Nope.avi says:

            ‘You didn’t simply give your opinion’. Learn English dumbass. I’m being condescending with this remark before you make any more assumptions.

            I’ve been following this situation with Digital Homicide for quite awhile. I gave my opinion. You don’t like that, so instead you want to assume what I’m saying.

            And then you make a thinly veiled assumption that I have multiple accounts. if so then why would I troll on an account with so little posts?

            Since you are too stupid to understand what’s going on, I’ll help you. I’m a straight shooter. I speak my mind. I’m also an asshole when I want to be. But I’m no troll.

            There’s nothing I can do to convince you that I’m not trolling, and I’m too busy IRL for this shit,so I’ll help you out and block you. You can take your trolling assumptions and go to hell with them.

            You have done 4 posts so far. Find one where you are NOT insulting, directly or indirectly, the other person. Learn how to do a dialog moron without being an insulting arrogant s h i t.
