They also make faulty infant carriers, and waited for 18 infants to get skull fractures before they did a recall.

Woo Hoo, Now those guys care!

Whilst looking through my game collection I just saw that Roller Coaster Tycoon was Hasbro''s. It might have been a cool game, but if thats not a complete rip off of Bullfrog''s "Theme Park", then I don''t know what is. I think the word hypocritical springs to mind.

Hasbro's probably gonna sue Bullfrog for Theme Park.

(Yes, I know Bullfrog made its game first, that's my point. Anyhow...didn't a lot of these companies being sued by Hasbro make their games BEFORE Hasbro got the Intellectual (sic) Property Rights?)

--or was it SIM Theme Park that came before Roller Coaster Tycoon? Or are they the same?

The author of RCT (Chris Sawyer) doesn''t seem to be very original. His first major game, Transport Tycoon (also published by Microprose), was based off of Railroad Tycoon; he even freely admitted it in a letter from the author type of thing at the beginning of the manual. When I first got RCT, I realized how much of a ripoff it was, though it is 100x better than Theme Park.

They make pokemon.




well, its obvious now that Hasbro is EEVIL INCARNATE.

Common, anything that would willingly spread the pokemon virus is definitely evil.

Ah, I think there were braver deeds.
