Heh. Good one
It's simple capitalism: the same ethic which protects freedom of speech also protects a company's right to drop you like a hot screw when your public activities threaten to cut into their public relations. Just ask Alison Rapp.
Except that it does not. A company is not legally allowed to fire you over your private opinions unless you openly claim that your statements are the company's statements. Free speech.
A company is allowed to fire you if it can prove that your actions at work or at home and the statements you make in the company's name cause it material loss.
If this guy decides to sue two things will happen. He will be rehired and then quit in exchange for a large sum of money, which the court will force the company to pay. The company will be forced to close as it will not be able to afford to pay him.
Alison was fired because she signed an exclusive contract (not allowed to hold a second job) while holding down a second job. I think Nintendo acted ridiculously in her case but a contract is a contract.
Which says that you're metaphorically willing to hurt people to make a point about something you don't like. On a more realistic scale, it implies that you'd hurt feelings and damage people emotionally just to get your dom on. I can't share that in common with you, to me it's just a fascinating facet of depravity I can only observe.
I second this motion.
I was sure this was going to be trash, but the beta more than pleasantly surprised me. A little disappointing that it really was just an unabashed Left 4 Dead xerox, and I don't mean "inspired by," I mean like "whoah ho ho, they're not even pretending here", but still really cool and fun, strong impact, nice visuals, good VA. Left 5 Rats might actually be that rarest of today's endangered beasts: a Warhammer game worth playing.
Yea I know absolutely nothing about the Warhammer universe and I bought this mainly as a distraction until Fallout 4 comes out, but this game is just plain fun...it helps that I have 500+ hours between L4D 1 and 2, and this absolutely clones the L4D gameplay in the best way possible.
