Gamespot, that utterly unimpeachable news source (as all of you with twinked Asheron’s Call characters know!) is now reporting that Eidos is buying out Todd “Dominion ROCKS!” Porter and Jerry “God Of All Art” O’Flaherty and assuming control of Ion Storm. Ion Storm, for those of you who ignore any news not involving Ultima Online, Everquest, or nudity, is John Romero’s little outfit. Todd Porter, formerly the President of Ion Storm, distinguished himself chiefly by grabbing other men’s asses. More on the train wreck that was Ion Storm in this excellent Dallas Observer article, including actual spreadsheets and email from the company that the paper got sued over. Journalism is fun!
Other fun things today include our homeboys at Old Man Murray proving, conclusively, that Roberta Williams is the devil through the use of ancient pornography.
