Schilling asks the judge to throw out lawsuit about $75 million loan

Quote
The filing seeking dismissal says Schilling and the other 38 Studios defendants - the former chief executive and financial officers and the board chairman - repeatedly disclosed the company's financial needs to Economic Development Corp. officials. It notes that the initial lawsuit says Stokes and others at the agency, including two law firms working for it, knew 38 Studios needed the full $75 million, but that it was getting only about $50 million because some was to be kept in reserve.

"Given the EDC's admissions concerning 38 Studios' disclosures to the EDC's executives, attorneys and financial advisor, it is impossible for the EDC simultaneously to claim that the 38 Studios defendants supposedly defrauded the EDC," the filing says.

The filing says the economic agency's board "well knew" the amount 38 Studios was getting wouldn't be nearly enough to fully finance the game. The resolution approved by the board says the estimated cost of the game's production is "in excess of $125 million."

The filing also says the agency's lawsuit doesn't prove anyone at 38 Studios knowingly made false statements to the agency.

Nobody wants to buy the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur. Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends got bought up though.

Personally, I can't say I'm surprised. It's a terribly clichéd and generic setting that felt like it was trying too hard.

Besides being fantasy its one of the least clicheed games I played of its type. Gnomes trying to create clones to cheat death, you being able to alter fate and destroy it , immortal faeries which recreates their legendary stories every day, over and over, and so on, being divided between Summer & Winter Court and so on. Really, if its guilty of anything, its trying to go beyond the tired stereotypes we see in pretty much every other single player MMO out there. It had a huge Jack Vance feel to it, and he certainly wrote stories that were more fairytale than fantasy, and thats what much of this tried to do.
