Distressed Debt Investing tweets
about the efforts to settle the affairs of bankrupt
THQ, a process that has been called into question
by investors. The feed says that
five strategic buyers are in due diligence and that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is one of the companies interested in the sale. The judge is reconvening on Monday after denying a Debtor In Possession
motion and telling the involved parties to work out the issues presented during yesterday's proceedings. Thanks BeefJack
The Steam Website
now features the promised encore
of the Steam 2012 Holiday Sale. They have relisted a bunch of game sales to run for the next 48 hours.
There is an unofficial explanation for the disappearance
of James Bond games from Valve's Steam
service on Neogamr
. According to their "unnamed but reliable sources" Activision's license to publish James Bond games expired at the end of 2012. This is surprising considering 007 Legends was released with just a couple of months to go in the year, though a rush to beat the license deadline could explain the game's poor reception which lead to the closure
of developer Eurocom. This is all still unconfirmed, as Activision has yet to comment on the situation.
The Firefly Universe Online Facebook Page
has word that this MMOG based on the cult sci-fi series has resumed development with the blessings of Fox Entertainment. They say to expect a Kickstarter campaign to support the project. Thanks Massively
Well, we're on take-two of our car situation after our mechanic replaced the switch that turns the dome light on and off when the driver-side door is opened and closed. He charged the battery and let it sit overnight and says it didn't lose any voltage, and it started fine today when we tried it, so maybe this was fixed that easily. It will be neat if it was, as it cost all of $65.00 (not counting a new battery) after we were concerned that we had developed one of those electrical gremlins that ends up requiring the car being replaced, which doesn't seem implausible for a ten-year-old car.
