    Gearbox acquires Homeworld for $1.35 million.
    SEGA acquires what's left of Relic(Company of Heroes, Warhammer 40k) for $26.6 million.
    Nordic acquires Supreme Commander, Red Faction, Darksiders, Destroy All Humans, Summoner, et al for $4.9 million.
    Koch acquires Metro for $5.8 million and what's left of Volition(Saints Row, FreeSpace) for $22.3 million.
    Crytek acquires Homefront for $500 thousand.
    Ubisoft acquires South Park for $3.2 million.
    505 acquires Drawn to Life for $300 thousand.
    Take2 acquires L4D dev's newest project Evolve for $10.8 million.

    Which of these is most likely to get ruined?
  2. Streke Stilton League

    Damn, EA isn't there for a free answer.

    I'd probably shoe in SEGA and Relic, on account that I don't know how they'll shape DoW or CoH in the future, and SEGA doesn't seem like it'd have much experience in it. Purely a guess.

    I'd also hazard Nordic to mess something up, seeing how Red Faction and Supreme Pizza Commander aren't competitive in their genres. But I wouldn't know. Those were relatively unpopular in a grand scale, anyhow.
  3. Drak Cottage League

    Metro just went from Instant-Buy status to Instant-Pirate status in my book.
    Ubisoft lucked out and played it safe with shitparkSouthpark, since that can't possibly get any worse than it already is.
    The last Red Faction game I played (armageddon) was utter crap compared to it's previous release, so that's ruled out.
    Not too sure about Take2, but I have a weird feeling Evolve might wind up bad given the downsizing and layoffs that it went through. However, I can't honestly say for sure on that because couldnt find

    after one google search
    anything on it.
  4. Shizeni Cream League
