Well, following somewhat in THQ's footsteps, Atari US Operations File for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. They just put Baldur's Gate on Steam, hopefully they're still around and selling it by the time the Summer sale comes around! Although maybe now it'll be the BTA on the latest Humble Bundle!(?)

Also the big THQ IP auction should be happening soon, so we'll probably know this week which game company buys what franchises.

Nooooo! Atari had the rights to the Land of the Dead VG but they stopped selling it/supporting it period. Now it might be lost in the abyss forever.

Atari's Steam Games in case anyone was looking for a list. They've updated the article I linked and basically, Atari US is trying to free itself from debt from Atari France(?), but they expect to be operating normally going forward. Hard to say how it will turn out for them though, I really hope for the best.

We all already own every THQ game (Except MX vs ATV) and the only Atari games that look good are Riddick and Baldur's Gate...

But still, padding out the Steam catalogue - I'm sure one day it''ll save my life, get me a GF, cause the release of HF3 etc...

AND THE STEAM CALCULATOR SITE IS STILL DOWN!

Already have Riddick and BG on GOG... and Riddick is free from that dastardly Tages on GOG. I think I'll stick with what I've got.

I'd imagine by now the license to that expired, and Atari sinking would have no real effect in the matter.

Anyone checked this site out yet?

http://www.galagiveaways.com/home

It's like steamgifts but slightly different. You start out with an amount of points based on how many games you have on steam (more games = more points... kinda weird but ok). And after spending those you can earn points by creating giveaways (or by doing nothing, but far less of course).

The fun of this is that you can set your own enter price. There's a formula that calculates the amount of points you gain, influenced by #of entries and price.

It's still far from optimal, needs more improvements but the community is growing and it's kinda fun giving away games there. Even if it's mostly bundle fodder for now.

Spec Ops the Line is 5 bucks at Gamefly. Mainly mentioning it because that means Amazon might do one of their auto-pricematch things and make it free with the Editor's Choice coupons for a few hours if you're the type to keep an eye out for such things.

Not to mention that since it was already on sale this month, it isn't likely they'd do it again.

Thanks for the head's up. Jake Nome helped me get the Act Of War games during the Holiday sale. So at this point, the only games that I really, really want from that list are Baldur's Gate & Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.

I guess I wouldn't mind picking up a couple of other games on that list if things degenerate to the point that they have to do a firesale. But frankly, I could live without most of that. It's not quite the same caliber of games as THQ has/had in their catalog.

Maybe not. I wondered about that. I'm assuming that's why they stopped selling it, but it's odd no one's taken the initiative to sell it digitally. I still have my boxed copy, but no clue how it would run on Windows 8.

while it could just be a mistake, Amazon France has also leaked some game details, rather accurately such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and The Killzone Trilogy.

I am kinda weary about buying anything Rockstar makes for PC. Max Payne 3 was like what 30-35 gigs, and GTA IV was a horrible port until they patched it and made it playable. Not to mention the DRM on that game.

max payne is obnoxiously big but it's a solid port, also no GFWL. being there most recent release it's probably a safe bet gta5 won't use it either. the rockstar social club stuff didn't bother me too much, just sign in once click auto login and forget it's there.

Given the Magicka weekend, I'm going to guess the daily with be Hydrophobia (at more than the $1.24 it usually hits on daily).

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Don't know that I'd agree. GTA is their golden goose franchise. I could see them going overboard with the DLC in that game moreso than lesser franchises like Max Payne or Man Hunt.

rockstar is one of the very few devs who do dlc right imo, they release legitimate expansions. doubt that changes now.
