Rockstar Games lacking sense of humor?

According to this article, someone from Rockstar Games objected to the ‘Grand Theft Scratchy’ posters for EA’s upcoming Simpsons game that were displayed at the Games Convention in Leipzig this year. I kind of find that hard to believe. First of all, GTA has been parodied a billion times already. Second, Rockstar Games generally does have a sense of humor. Third, it would be uncool to actually show annoyance. So maybe it’s just EA FUD. But on the other hand, Rockstar Games hates EA’s guts. So who knows?

    I assume you are referring to “the old” Rockstar Games (as in Houser managed) – my interpretation is the humor is gone, and so is the coolness…

    OK, so they’ve not changed that much :P I wonder if there’s been a six month period in the last, oh, 6 years where T2 has not been investigated by the SEC.
