The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Karma Gets The War Z's Trademark Suspended

Posted on Sunday, December 23 @ 14:51:20 PST by Jonathan_Leack
These zombies wish they were in a different game.

You may have heard about the tons of fallout from The War Z's developer being rude to its customers, but that's only the beginning.

The United States Patent & Trademark Office site shows The War Z's trademark as suspended. The reason is for the title's striking similarity—I'm seeing a trend here—to World War Z, a best-selling novel that came out six years ago.

One of the most interesting details on the page is when the original trademark was filed: July of this year. Given the unfinished and extremely rough state of the game, it appears that it only began development a few months ago. If that's the case, it's no wonder the team had to resort to stealing content, assets, and art from other media.

It looks like The War Z won't be the open world surival-horror game that breaks the genre out of its infancy. Hopefully a developer that knows what it's doing can see its promise and finally give us what we've all been waiting for without the BS.
