Take Two Gets Irrational

Report Take-Two Acquires Irrational Games on Gamasutra is an unconfirmed report suggesting that Irrational Games has been acquired by Take-Two Interactive (thanks Frans). Here's a bit:

According to unconfirmed reports from employees of developer Irrational Games, the company has been acquired by U.S. publisher Take-Two Interactive. The two companies have already been working in close conjunction, with Take-Two registering the trademark for and agreeing to publish Irrational’s forthcoming game BioShock.

Update: We have been able to confirm this news with Take-Two, who say an official announcement is forthcoming.

Take 2 sucks nuts and Irrational (Formerly Looking Glass) blew it with Tribes Vengeance. Probably not a good mix here.

Oh shut the fuck up. I saw your whining in the SS3 thread about "entertainment is d0med" and now this? You're so fucking jaded that you'd even hate on BioShock? Dude, find a new fucking hobby. If you can't get excited over BioShock then gaming is not for you.

There's plenty of excellent entertainment around. The ration of bad tv/bad games/bad movies to good is no different than it was 10 or 20 years ago. If you'd like some specific examples, i'd be happy to provide them -- even though it's highly likely that your whiny ass will complain about them as well.
