Metacritic tells me there are at least 1000 games with "monster" in the title (though some are multiple copies of multiplatform releases). I'm not exactly a fan of Ubisoft, but in this case? Monster Energy can get fucked. What a spurious lawsuit.

This just shows how broken our patent and law systems are. Who in their right effing mind is going to confuse a video game with an energy drink? The fact no other publisher, like Capcom for Monster Hunter, didn't sue them when they came out with "Monster Energy Supercross" and junk shows there wasn't a worry by those companies that people - even within the videogame space - were likely to confuse their franchise or games with an energy drink.
