I went in BestBuy last week to buy Fallout 3 and they still have Hellgate London on a shelf for $19.99 (it's also on their website). Didn't BestBuy get the memo about the status of the game? They should immediately remove the game from both store fronts. Selling this game to a customer when its going to expire in a couple months is egregious.

Expire? The game's a perfectly playable single-player game, you know. Well worth a measly $20. I find I'm still playing it occasionally. That actually makes it one of the best $/hr values out of all the games I've bought in the last year.

The fact that one part of the business plan was absurd, doesn't make the whole game bad.
