An anonymous reader writes "Kotaku points to the official auction site for Acclaim, the game publisher that was. The Auction includes the building and everything that was in it, including arcade games, boardroom tables, an odd collection of football helmets and 43,000 copies of video games."

Hmmm, I believe the standard response to such a comment is "You're new around here, aren't you?"

Seriously, spelling errors in story summaries are so damn common that they're practically part of the Slasdot experience, together with dupes, occasional fakes, "news" stories that are days, weeks or even months old, and editorial comments appended to summaries that are entirely inappropriate for what claims to be a news site (but is closer to a news-related meta-blog).

There was one a couple of weeks back that appeared on the front page less than two hours after the orignal story did, and with only one other story separating them. I can't remember the exact time differential, but it was something like one hour and 47 minutes - that's got to be some kind of record.

All the comments made to the second story (apart from the usual trolls) pointed out the ridiculousness of the situation. Eventually, the whole dupe and all the attached comments were erased, as if it never existed.

Whereas in the past all such dupes would have been left alone, now it looks like some of them are being deleted after the fact. So, rather than cure the disease - by actually vetting stories properly, doing basic fact checking, etc, like all proper news outlets would - it seems that the Slashdot "editors" have chosen to treat the symptoms - by covering up their mistakes after they've been made.

I swear, in 99.99 percent of businesses, if people ran things this way then heads would roll pretty damn fast.

Apparently, "accalim" is not a common misspelling of "acclaim" on the internet. Assuming all instance of "accalim" were misspellings, it seems to occur at a rate of 4.4% (836/1,880,000).

According to Google, there were 836 "accalim" webpages out of 1,880,000 ("acclaim" OR "accalim") webpages. Results were restricted to webpages in English.

Done in by the people who would buy this stuff (1, Insightful)

Dancin_Santa (265275) | more than 8 years ago | (#10971211)

You'd buy this, but you wouldn't pay for their games. Any quick search of Google turns up loads of cracks and warez for their games. It's been that way for a long time.

It's hard for a company to make money selling games, when perfect duplication is possible and people are willing to break the law to circumvent copy protection systems.

I don't care what you may think about their games, but you have to admit that it takes some seriously warped thinking to believe that destroying companies like this actually helps the software industry. Pay for the stuff you value. This isn't a zero-sum game we are playing, it is actually a game in which everyone is better off when we treat creators with the respect they deserve.

And then they complain when companies try to insure that only legal owners can play the games with some sort of copy protection. I hate the schemes also, but you can't blame them when that many people are playing without paying.

heh, when it's:

1. Pointless, because it doesn't work
2. Hassling legitimate customers more than pirates

So, i think it's fine to have online registration for multiplayer as in ut2k4 or WoW, cause it works and is hassle free (aside from the careful typing required, but that's being finicky). It's not fine to have CD checks or Online reg for single player games, since a pirate will have downloaded a cracked copy of the whole game and can install it and play hassle free, while I still have to get online to register (not a big hassle for me, i admit) or find the CDs (this i like a LOT less).

You realize that console piracy (Acclaim's main business) is no longer that prevalent right?

Sure it happens, but one of the big plues of gaming going mainstream is that most console owners don't even know where to find pirated games or how to make them work.

kungfuSiR (753429) | more than 8 years ago | (#10971330)

I'd have to agree that most of the stuff acclaim has been putting out is crap. However stealing something and saying you are stealing it because it is crap does not justify your actions. Either buy it and then say how crappy it is, or just stay away and let the company go down in flames the right way. Although i'm sure Acclaim went south because of mis management more then people stealing their games.

Re:Done in by the people who would buy this stuff (4, Insightful)

stienman (51024) | more than 8 years ago | (#10971396)

Are you making the claim that if their games were not pirated Acclaim would not have failed?

I don't agree with piracy (though, for a variety of personal reasons, I hate protection schemes that require the disk to play, or activation over the internet), but that is part of the business of computer software, like it or not. If Acclaim truly failed because of piracy, then it's due to them underestimating the extent of the piracy, or not taking proper precautions. There is no perfect solution to piracy, so any reasonable business plan must include its effects.

As far as treating the 'creators with the respect they deserve' do you also believe that video game companies should treat the creators with the respect they deserve? And what, pray tell, respect do these various creators deserve, exactly?

It's hard for a company to make money selling games, when perfect duplication is possible and people are willing to break the law to circumvent copy protection systems.

And that's where the fallacy in your subject line is. It wasn't done in by the people who would buy this stuff, it was done in by the people who pirated their software. I'm no fan of copy protection, although I don't mind having to have the CD in the drive when you play, but if too many people use stolen, cracked copies, there's no profit for the company, and without that, you have no company and no more games.

I wonder how many of the people who mouned the bankrupcy paid for every copy of a game they have...

Security of Selling Server Equipment (3, Interesting)

sabNetwork (416076) | more than 8 years ago | (#10971366)

The auction site [maltzauctions.com] shows numerous servers up for bid.

What's the chance that they wiped the hard drives on them?

Everything from corporate email to source code could be there.

It is taking place in glen cove, LI. Only about a half hour drive for me but unfortunately I am upstate at school now unless I would be there bidding on some network equipment. I bet they would have better luck liquidating on ebay or another online auction website.

I want their "Alter of Sacrifice". You know, the one they used to sacrifice virgins on in their ever-present quest to make a game even shittier than their last.
