*Edit* Rereading the first paragraph of the news article, I see that I was merely ignorant of the bankruptcy. However, since the assets are being auctioned off, I think it's fair to say that Acclaim is done for.

Too bad for their employees and all that, but I can't imagine this being much of a loss to anyone else. As mismanaged as Interplay was, at least they had some key franchises to brag about. All I really remember about Accliam was how much I hated the Attitude engine.

Funny, I didn't mind those engines; I didn't care at all for the button mashing from the NES/SNES/Genesis and 32X WWF games.
That is, until I eventually bought a turbo controller :-D
Check out my website; and my online journal...in English and Al Bhed. Seriously.
Originally posted by WhitebaconI swear I must be the only person that liked that engine.
Nahhh.... I liked it too. I broke out the old ECW games just for the hell of it and I had forgotten just how much fun they were.
I was working a job that I absolutely HATED when those games came out, so I created a couple of CAW's out of my bosses. Nothing like working a 19 hour day, going home, and whipping your assclown of a boss into barbed wire for an hour and a half.
God, I hated that job.

Fans of Final Fantasy style RPGs. should look into picking up Lost Odyssey. It's a fantastic game with a surprisingly well-told and emotional story. It's not innovative or anything, but it's definitely good if you like traditional Japanese RPGs.
