LSL... Wow - that is an old school reference.

Is there a download coming up from them? Those Sierra games of that era were epic! (Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest etc.)

Oh no, we couldn't do that. We can't have any interaction with Developers or Publishers. That would debase this noble enterprise called Cheap Ass Gamer.


Lol I see what you did there Sir End of The, noblest knight in all the internets.

yea, i have a few questions for those guys


Sweet, this is going to be fun.

It was kickstarted back in spring. I'm a $15 backer.
http://www.kickstart...-again?ref=live

The one thing I have to say with kickstarter is the OMFG levels of communication. I'm sure some people like it, I just wish it didn't force me to filter all my kickstarter emails (and thus miss the important ones). I've mainly backed people/teams I believe in: Wasteland 2, Leisure Suit Larry, Carmageddon Reincarnation.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

Yay on the Q&A

Bummer that so far I can't find anything that I want to buy or am getting knocked out 'cause it's bundled with something I own.

Looking forward to January and the rest of the Winter Sale!

Come to think of it, any chance of an end of the world bundle?

I'll start it off with:

  • Bing bang bundle
  • It's game over man bundle
  • The just in case they are right bundle
  • The WTF bundle (and it's already up so that's easy)
  • The finally a bundle that activates on origin and steam
  • The 1C bundle - just cause we had to do it...


looks like gog is having a little fun with their 'end of the world' bundles.

my favorite is the 'santa snapped' one.

on a more semi serious note:

TONY

*please* keep working on bringing some of the old titles. I'd love a city builder series and the sierra quest ones. I want the gog selection but with Tony's special pricing.

Actually, it's largely good news. They seem to be going with a restructuring sort of bankrupcy rather than a shut-everything-down sort of bankrupcy. Without some recent sales income, they may have been forced into the latter instead.


What worries me is that they are selling their assets, all of them, even if they managed to pull the stunt of just switching paycheck signers, nothing guarantees that further along the road they won't start to desperately slice the pie away.

Now, yeah, maybe you are right, indeed THQ really needs a change of management, it's just astounding to see a company sitting on the assets THQ has and going bankrupted.


Most of THQ's problems stem from a disastrous venture into hardware. The uDraw absolutely killed THQ, as it tied up resources that would have allowed the company to weather the commercial disappointments of Homefront and Red Faction: Armageddon.

By going through a structured bankruptcy, THQ will retain the studios and IPs it currently possesses, while eliminating debts it can't afford to repay. (Those of you who bought THQ stock, my sympathies for your upcoming loss.)

The real question will be how the new owners (whether Clearlake or someone else) view the digital-download landscape. But that question won't be settled anytime soon, so the deals already in place for the holiday season shouldn't be affected. *knock on wood*

does "this holiday" include any possible January sales or just the stuff in December? It's basically the question of "so if anyone's waiting for the THQ stuff to pop up in Jan should they assume the gamble isn't a gamble anymore but a guaranteed no"?

On this note I just got off the phone with the Leisure Suit Larry guys...they are really cool, would you guys be interested in interacting with them?

I'm thinking a Q&A or something.

Cheers,
Tony



Q&A with Al Lowe and the gang would be great. As would Amazon carrying these games (with Steam key option, of course ;))!

I'm so glad they didn't. I thought the SR3 zombie missions were truly awful and completely ruined the flow of the game.


I thought it was a missed opportunity. Like it was just a checkbox on their to-do list.

Though I do recall thinking that if if there're going to be aliens, there damn well better be zombies.

Regardless of whether zombies were done well, it is safe to say that some crazy mother f*****s made a great game that had just about everything in it, and it was one hell of a good time!

I did look it up before, and I really can't recall hearing anyone mention it, haven't seen it in a store (online or offline), and certainly don't know anyone who owns one - even my flatmate who owns a collection of Wii peripherals hasn't mentioned it.

Amazon won't price match non-US stores (eg: GG, GGG, GMG.)

Payment errors with GMG are typically related to your bank blocking payment to them for one reason or another. Personally I haven't had that happen, but my bank isn't American.

Chapter 11 does not mean that they're looting and burning their offices while employees smuggle out memorbilia underneath their pink slips.

There's going to be more sales, they have time for this type of stuff. They aren't going to give Saint's Row to EA tommorow. Obviously we don't know exactly what is going to happen but people are generally blowing the news story out of proportion right now.
