Wally Oppal to appear in Uwe Boll Slasher Film

Gamer Culture and BC politics clash in a story that takes a turn for the weird. Despite all the direct-to-video abortions Uwe Boll has put out, people still seem to be hiring him to make films. Stranger still, former BC judge and MLA Wally Oppal is set to play a murder victim in Boll’s latest slasher, Bail Out. The movie features an investor who goes on a killing spree of stock brokers and money managers after the 2008 financial crisis. And for the final touch on this bad taste trifecta, Oppal is currently serving as commissioner on the Missing Women Inquiry, which is trying to explain why Robert Pickton was able to run around the Downtown Eastside for almost a decade and kill almost 50 people. I think we can all agree that nothing good can come from a situation where Uwe Boll is involved.

Paul Christoforo Sues N-Control

A new chapter has opened in the Ocean Marketing Saga. You may remember Paul Christoforo as the man who thought it would be a great idea to physically threaten the creators and staff at Penny Arcade because they exposed his less than admirable treatment of customers waiting for the Avenger controller for gamers with disabilities. Christoforo, now in need of a gig, has filed a lawsuit against N-Control, makers of the Avenger, for defamation of character. The following is a quote from his letter to Kotaku:

The grounds are defamation of Character telling lies about me my company and preventing me from making a living by lying about things that never happened and I plan on going after other people too esp .coms who printed the lies and did not retract after i asked nicely. Breach of contract for them not paying me an undisclosed sum of money Due to me at the time we parted ways and a few other things named in the lawsuit.

The question is, after all he’s said and done, after saying things like “Son Im 38 I wwebsite as on the internet when you were a sperm in your daddys balls.”, and after not possessing the google or grammar skills to figure out who he was dealing with? how could anyone possibly add anything to that lexicon that would count as defamation of character?
