-According to massively and derek's blog, he paid allen off to go away and settle the lawsuit. All that crap, derek swearing he wouldn't pay Allen a dime, he was going to lose, would rather pay attorneys that him etc etc etc.
Well, he paid Allen as part of the settlement.
And took down all the blog entries, gamasutra comments, his own personal blog pdfs etc.
So hopefully, now Derek will shut up, work on the game and put his focus where it belongs.
It also tickles me just a little bit they bought Allen's interest after all of the bluster, half-truths and mis-statements to others about his view of what the statutes invovled read as, etc. Karma.
I imagine his editing of his blog also means they'll be taking down some of his more ridiculous rants other places like broken toys, gamasutra, etc. I would post a few favorites here but i have a feeling they'd be removed due to the nature of the settlement. so get 'em while you can.
*Edit*: It appears Mr. Smart asked and the handlers told him okay and the blog entries reappeared. Good for him, sure the wife and family are glad he's spending time on that junk.
