Kane & Lynch Developers Sued for Defaming Chinese People

Never mind that Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days was first released nearly two years ago (or that it was a bit of a turd), one lawyer in China sure is pissed. (IO Interactive, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Nixxes Software, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Ridiculous. I'm surprised he even played the game it was so bad.

I rather enjoyed Kane & Lynch 2... my only complaint is that the game wasn't longer.

From Article: "Liu is seeking 10,000 yuan (US$1,585) in damages."

LoL The "defaming" of the largest ethnic population on earth is only valued at $1,585.

Kane & Lynch is a work of fiction. Get over it.

I enjoyed Kane and Lynch 2. I certainly respect peoples' opinions of it because that's fair but I think it's pretty disgusting for Kotaku to just call it a turd. I know the average person will just write a movie or a game off as crap but professional critics should appreciate that sitting down and crafting a virtual experience is fucking difficult and takes a LOT of people putting in a LOT of work and that it only takes a few slip ups to make a game unenjoyable. There is no scenario where game developers sit around eating donuts whilst lazily throwing tropes around in a meeting - they all work hard and that should be appreciated by people who make their living LEECHING OFF THOSE VERY GAMES.

But aside from my journalism rant I can't help but point out the Chinese government's actions have done a pretty damn good job of vilifying China. I know that playing that video game must have really upset him but shouldn't he be more concerned about the Orwellian regime slowly destroying all hopes of freedom in his country? But saying that this guy has some retarded priorities.

Or more realistically he's an idiot with a $1,585 mortgage payment due in his post and like all idiots he looked to the legal system to help.

Haha, I actually loved Dog Days. It had true grit in a way most games (or movies) don't have. And had old ugly people as main characters instead of beautiful 20 somethings.

Gotta respect its nerve and I just loved the art style.

Fun game too.

God, this better be thrown out of court. Otherwise, all of our antagonists will come from "Madeupistan" or "Communisia."

Conversely, it might force developers to be more creative when designing their enemies... Ha, who can say that with a straight face!

"Deframe a China?! IMPOSSIBRU!!"

And then Lynch was all like "You mad, bro?"

And Kane was on his cell phone like, "Yeah baby, I'll be there in a minute"

It's defame not deframe.
jamesgtaiv  +   791d ago
Thanks. Wouldn't want to spell anything the wrong way when making fun of the Chinese accent.

Kane and Lynch already defamed video games , no need to sue .
ChrisW  +   791d ago
LOL! Gotta love the Chinese! This is about as ludicrous as Simon Ledger being arrested for covering "Kung Fu Fighting" in Britain!

Liu is seeking 10,000 yuan (US$1,585) in damages.

$1,585 in damages it will cost ten times that in legal fees so whats the point.
