Rhode Island House Passes 38 Studios Settlement Bill

The drama between Curt Schilling's 38 Studios and the state of Rhode Island is coming closer to an end. The state's House of Representatives approved a bill yesterday that will support settlement with the litigation between the state and the game studio.

Last month, the state Senate approved the bill, and after the House's approval, it's ready to be signed by Rhode Island's governor. Once it becomes law, any defendant who settles in the litigation will be protected from any future lawsuits filed against them by other defendants regarding damages for which that defendant may be liable.

"The goal is to encourage settlements to get monies in sooner to the state of Rhode Island, so that we can use that as one of the things that we consider in dealing with this very complex and difficult issue," said state Rep. Nick Mattiello in an interview with NBC 10.

The state of Rhode Island sued Curt Schilling and 13 others in 2012 after 38 Studios went bankrupt, owing $90 million back to the state for a $75 million loan.

Blah blah blah. Who's Curt Shilling? Why does he owe so much money? What does it have to do with gaming?

Unless you're already acquainted with the subject, this article is absolutely worhless.

Now I don't see the words baseball or Kingdoms of Amalur anywhere there. Why?

Or EA....funny the game is selling...maybe not well but selling. It is actually not too damn bad.

They made only one game Kingdom Of Amalur: The Reckoning.....it wasen't a bad game rather a nice RPG. But considering that the original plan was to make the into a MMORPG, I guess thats why they took such a huge loan. MMO's have long development cycles and I guess they were counting on montly subscriptions and ingame transaction to bring in the big bucks.
