Game Developer Sues Game Critic For $10 Million

Okay, so this game developer has filed a ten million dollar lawsuit against a video game critic for assault, libel, and slander. Things get even weirder when the game developer immediately seeks $75k on GoFundMe donations for its legal fees (total donations are at $190 so far).

On March 16, Digital Homicide formally filed a lawsuit in Arizona District Court, accusing Sterling of "assault, libel, and slander" to the tune of $10 million. (The only reason "assault" is listed is because libel is, legally speaking, part of a broader category when filing a lawsuit. Ignore that.) The lawsuit was filed by Digital Homicide co-founder James Romine.
