    Acclaim officially goes bankrupt!

    Well the makers of games such as Turok, Juiced, Dave Mirra etc etc have gone bankrupt . Looks like the release of Juiced will be pushed back unless they've already sold it off to another publisher (along with any other "in process" titles.

    I didn't particulary like there games (Juiced does rock though) but it's sad to see a games company drop out of the race

    And at one time they made up most of the popular games in the arcades...

    That's a shame, they've made some cracking games over the years.

    The saddest one for me was when Looking Glass went out of business, as they made some fantastic and really innovative games.

    But, unfortunately, innovation is no guarantee of success. Just look at EA, who spend most of their time churning out mildly tweaked versions of FIFA every few months.

    I liked the Extreme-G and Turok series very much (that was a bit before I got a computer). Sad to see a good company going under
