Dragon Ball Z Voice Actor Accused Of Sexual Harassment Loses Defamation Case Appeal, Ordered To Pay Thousands

The voice actor who played Broly in Dragon Ball Z, Vic Mignogna, has been accused of sexual harassment. Mignogna fought back with a defamation case, but having lost the lawsuit in court, the voice actor has now been ordered to pay thousands of dollars in damages."They haven't won anything. You can't win if you don't allow the game to be played,” Mignogna said in a statement, complaining about how the appeal can't move forward. "All that has happened here is they've kept the case from being heard." The testimony against the voice actor is on the other hand pretty damning.

Hot on the heels of numerous other unusual ports, Doom is apparently now playable on a tractor. The point of this particular port was however a statement in the Right to Repair movement. "Farmers prefer the older equipment simply because they want reliability. They don’t want stuff to go wrong at the most important part of the year when they have to pull stuff out of the ground," the programmer Sick Codes mentioned. "So, that's what we should all want, too.

Having come under fire for promoting blasphemy, the publisher behind Cult of the Lamb, Devolver Digital, stood behind the game, explaining how the devil made them do it. "You are a publisher in Austin, Texas. How can you in good faith publish a game that is so completely heretical?
