Game over man! Game over =(

I suggest everyone get Too Human while you have the chance! It's going to be a piece of video game history.

I bought Too Human on clearance for a tenner at Target and still returned it. I don't think I'm missing much.

Man, I wish these sorts of decisions were about SURRENDERING the code rather than DESTROYING it. Hate the idea of destroying this stuff over a legal battle.

... Of course there's still the problem that they probably not really WORTH getting.

The ultimate backfire. Dyack ruining SK purely by his own hubris is impressive in its own right. At least the undoing of 38 Studios was by Schilling's sheer ignorance of the industry.

Holy shit, destroying the code?

I don't really like the sound of this. Too Human wasn't a great game by any stretch but it gave me some weird form of enjoyment. So, was it true that Too Human's game code was essentially all re-written unreal stuff? Seems awfully overkill to make them delete the game code otherwise.

Yeah. They'd probably sit on them (well, I guess if Activision cared they could call up for the X-men game), but at least it exists and could be exhumed at a later date.

You'll probably be finding copies in GameStop when they're doing buy two get two deals on 360 software 8 years from now.

SK is going to get into further trouble because of this with publishers of XMEN and Too Human, it's not like the developer can return and destroy the game. I wonder what will happen. Bankruptcy seems imminent.

The publisher, I'd imagine, seeing as it's the party responsible for pressing the discs and shipping them to stores. Acti could attempt to pass that cost on to SK, but the company has been surviving on contract to contract, so this would surely be a fruitless endeavour.

Yeah, wouldn't be publishers the ones required to do this? They are the ones that sell those copies to retailers in the first place.

I'd better find a copy of Too Human while I can. I just have to have it.

But really, this is a shitty situation - having to destroy all your work like this. Not that they didn't deserve, but still.

Wonder if it's possible for them to negotiate a deal to skip this crap. Or the plan is to bill SK for it, whatever.

If they build the backhoe out of copies of the recalled games, they can make the first legit claim in a long time that they've made a groundbreaking product.

Beautiful.

Too bad about SK, they made a couple good games. Nothing at all recent, but still. This is pretty much it for them then, isn't it?
