Is Feargus Buying anything in the Acclaim "sale"

Recommended Posts

I was looking at that list today and I was wondering why noone had picked up the Bard's Tale International IP..

Wait, what does publishing the rights to a game actually mean? Do they just get the rights to republish the game, or the right to use the name to publish an entirely new game, or what?

 

I'm just wondering what a Hentai game company would be able to do with the rights to "Mary Kate & Ashley Magical Mystery Mall". :)


Hawk! Eggplant! AWAKEN!

I wonder how much some of those useless rights go for. Like Batman Forever.

I hope Hades or Volourn get here before all the WWF titles are gone


People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

Why would anyone bid on games that other companies have already continued? (Burnout, Narc, Simpsons)

 

Wizards and Warriors was a smart pickup.


What if I wanted to kill the other bounty hunters but still have the Twi'leks chase me?

Fond memories of Re-Volt tournaments... not to mention Bubble Bobble :p

I saw a version of Bubble Bobble recently. It was on one of the Nintendo hadhelds but I dont remember which one. There only two so you have a 50/50 chance.


I have to agree with Volourn.  Bioware is pretty much dead now.  Deals like this kills development studios.

It depends if its an IP or a franchise. If its an IP then the publishers usually owns EVERYTHING, from the doodles of the koncept artists to the patented "technology X" engine and every idea the designers put on paper during development. ( yes, the dev studio basicly sell their souls to the publisher )

 

If its a franchise then they own everything except that which is part of the license that they bought which is still the property of Warner Bros. if its a Matrix game and so on

Bioware should buy Mortal Kombat, then replace all the characters with Bioware characters so they can face each other in fierce combat!

Doesn't Midway already own rights to publish new Mortal Kombat games?

 

Nevermind that though.

 

The high bid on Bust-A-Freaking-Move is low enough at one time I could have boughten it!

You know, I have always thought there was something weird with Jaheira and Khalid. Khalid came off as some gay guy who was still in the closet while jaheira was a "butch" lesbian. It was just very very odd yet not. :)

I think Bubble Bobble came with Taito Legends on my Playstation 2. I wonder what Acclaim are selling, really :)
