This section was created to deter entities from suing us for defamation by exemplifying our fictitious nature. We are a satirical video game publication who is completely full of shit and lies. Anything we report on is not true and we do not intend for our content to be taken seriously. Our material is poorly crafted, pathetic and quite frankly not worth enraging over. Instead, we suggest laughing at us at our own disposal and maybe deprecating yourself a bit in the process. Era Error is about keeping the industry grounded, with our signature irrelevant, out of control no holds barred humour leaving nothing sacred. Any aspect of the video game industry is in our sights.

Again, please be that cool dude and defer from taking legal action against us... Please?

For more information on Era Error itself, click on our ABOUT section.




The content and satire of EraError.com is based in a fictional world known as the Errorverse. The characteristics of this universe are almost identical to the video game industry and society of actual life, except for a few key components which have injected themselves with steroids:

1. Any real life occurrences that also exist in the ERRORverse are amplified by roughly a thousand times due to the after-effects of the 32X Blast Processing disaster of 1994. Coincidentally, this helps us illustrate the constant hypocrisy, ridiculousness and stupidity of the video game business into an easy to digest package that everyone can understand.

2. The ERRORverse is purely satirical in nature. Any grain of truth is exploited to attempt comedic effect.

3. Corporate greed reigns supreme. Capitalism is the predominant religion in the ERRORverse and currency is the only reason anyone does anything. Passion is a void emotion for Capitalists trying to make a quick buck in the video game industry.

4. Video Game Publishers are the greediest and most ruthless entities in the industry. Nothing will deter them from reaching their projected goals. Developers (The Devel) are their arch enemy due to their desires to please and entertain consumers with their expressions of art. There's a stark contrast between Publisher (evil) and Developer (good) which also happens to be one of the many underlying battles taking place in the ERRORverse.

5. Currency is the most potent drug in the ERRORverse. Publishers and other Capitalists in the video game industry are addicted to the high it emits and will do ANYTHING to increase their hoard.

6. Hardware manufacturers are in the same realm as publishers.

7. The homicide rate in the ERRORverse is ridiculously high. Homicides occur regularly to little fuss. Members of the video game industry are often hostile to help them achieve their wildest desires. People in general don't really care when others die either, just like in video games.

8. Consumers are considered the lowest of scum. Also known as Errorians, consumers are treated like expendable Lemmings who are believed to only be useful for their money and expected to believe every stupid, devious scheme undertaken.

9. Video game executives are some of the most egotistical and narcissistic people in the ERRORverse. These people have personas and arrogance larger than the biggest pop-stars and sports people in the Universe.

10. Everything is more offensive than their real life counter-parts. The ERRORverse was founded on taboo subject matter. Violence, drugs, disgusting humour, adult themes - you name it! If someone could be offended by it, expect to see it, presented in comedic form.

11. Video game media and publications are pathetically shit at their job. Era Error included.
