Tim Langdell Resigns from IGDA
Yes, Tim Langdell, the man who claims to have the global trademark on the word “Edge” and will rain lawsuits down upon anyone who tries to use it, has stepped down from his position on the IGDA (International Game Developers Association) Board of Directors after a plethora of developers and gamers alike petitioned for his removal. Mr. Langdell had this to say on the IGDA message boards:
“I make this decision not because I have done anything wrong — on the contrary I am confident that all accusations against me were unfounded and purely intended to defame, and am confident that I have at all times acted in the best interest of the IGDA and its membership — but because I must make this decision between concluding a process that will show I did no wrong, and having that process irreparably damage the IGDA, I cannot permit the latter to happen. This has to drive my decision today, taking priority over defending myself against these accusations to a conclusion.”
He may have been declawed, but he still feels confident that he’s the victim in all this. If he succeeds, who knows what’s next? Grandma’s next 4 letter triple word score in Scrabble may be her last!
