Acclaim Back From the Dead 41

GameDailyBiz reports that Acclaim is back from the dead (again), and this time it's a MMOG publisher. From the article: "Acclaim's first title will be BOTS, a multiplayer online robot fighting game that is completely free to play. 'The game is designed with accessibility and a positive community experience in mind. A sports-like ranking system allows players to challenge themselves against their friends in a cleanly rendered, safe and youth friendly environment as they develop their skills and evolve their own personalized BOT,' says Acclaim." They're also planning a more traditional MMOG called 9Dragons.

    Ah, I remember them well from my games journalism days. When they wanted some coverage from you, they were all smiles and helpfulness. When you asked for something from them, they were bastards of the first order.

    I was actually kind of hoping that TFA would announce that they'd signed up as publishers for the Infinium Phantom. That would be about on the same level as their other business decisions!

    On the other hand, Acclaim was a big enough name to justify a Slashdot story. So their money got them some benefit, at least.
