Acclaim under new management. :P

But, I guess the new owner wants to bring more Korean online games to North America and Europe.

How do these guys figure paying $100,000 for the name to a company notorious for putting out licensed shovelware and kind of ok wrestling titles is going to help them get a good name in the localization of Asian MMOs?

I think I'll start a veal packaging plant and name it PETA.

Word around here is that the purchaser is one of the original founders, and he's just kind of attached to the name.

Oh, and also, someone (probably the same guy) put in a bid on ALL the remaining rights that Maltz is auctioning. So yeah, Acclaim might be coming back FOR REALS.

Probably still no hope for the red star being released. Sad

The Red Star team told me about...oh, five months ago that they had a publisher, but I haven't heard anything since.

"So yeah, some buddies and I have a new fledgling energy company that's getting on it's feet. We had to pay a few bucks to use the name, but we finally decided to call it ENRON."

This won't end well.

This can't be happening...

It was bad enough that Eidos was saved, but this is unforgiveable...
