ZP's Yahtzee remembers Acclaim and their insane PR stunts

The Zero-Punk man himself! -- the latest part of his wryly humorous series on game industry foibles.

Today's lesson: bad PR can maybe help a good game get some needed attention, but bad PR only makes rushed-out innovative-less plop peddlers into INSANE rushed-out innovative-less plop peddlers.

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Strategic Werewolf Axe-chopping Simulator video AAR!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Oh yeah acclaim sure did shovel out some shit in the 90ís.

It was like their corporate goal was to make 1 good game to maintain respectability and force out 10 crap games for money grab purposes.
Insert witty comment here.
