Simpsons Writers smack talk Rockstar

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/10...alk_rockstar/1

The writers of the new The Simpsons game talk about GTa developer Rockstar and the complaints they've had from the company. Beware: smack talk within!

From that "wit" of that writer I can see why the Simpsons has gone downhill now.

I guess Rockstar can dish it out but can't take it, eh? Sad that we loose what was probably a pretty fun bit of the game because Rockstar can't take a joke. There needs to be laws against this stuff.

They have a very valid point, rockstar take the piss out of everything they can. Then someone comes along and parodies there game and they call the lawyers, pathetic.

"Rizzer elaborated that it was probably a lawyer who's been the source of said conflicts, but that's no excuse in our book."

Taken from a link in the article

I can't see Rockstar making the complaints without effectively being told to do so as apparently they've let things go before. And I have to say the TV writers were so unfunny in that clip that I felt ill. Seriously, get a new job.

Hi everyone

I'm surprised people seem to be taking this so seriously.... Rockstar have made themselves look like tools, and we can only guess at what exactly they were complaining about given their own games

but....

Are you lot being serious? Do you really think that it's the same people at Rockstar who named a band "Love-Fist" and made some amazing in-game radio shows, companies and characters would really be the same ones who got annoyed at The Simpsons game? I don't think so.

In my view, the GTA series is one of the very best and most influential ever produced, and this tiny incident changes nothing

The Simpson's game looks like the usual tie-in garbage that they've always made, I don't even know why Rockstar would bother getting all upset over it. Wasn't there a small poke at GTA in the Simpson's movie? Did they pissed off about that too?

I don't think the actual development team gives a damn about The Simpsons spoofing/parodying their title - probably some new marketing/legal bozos.

But it's not an FPS so the pc version will suck just like any other non FPS (or RTS/clicky game)

Controller > Keyboard

I tend to agree that any free form game gets derivitive Gta vibes thrown at it. Any one remember Urban Chaos? It`s more of a genre than a Rockstar owned gamestyle. Ok it`s not quite what the arguement is about but it is what every journalist touts when they see something where you can run around. I read LOADS of reviews like that for crackdown.

It appears that the simpson game has picked up on this and is poking fun at it all, not a bad thing considering GTAIII is one of my favourite games of all time. It kind of gives a JetSetWilly on steroids feel, old school gameplay and fun, without taking itself too seriously.
But then money and power corrupts and rockstar run the risk of becoming everything it hates. With snazzy uptown advertisement simply there to fuel controversy (I`m reffering to glib defense of GTA and that Bloody Manhunt) and snappy high flying lawyers?
