    Does this mean no more comedy costumes and stage invasions?

    To be honest, their actual games were a lot less interesting than the antics of the management.

    Acquired Mike Wilson’s Gamecock eh… Well, what ever floats their boat.
    They’re both pretty low end companies, maybe something decent will come out of this…

    Seems like a smart move. As has been suggested, both of these publishers are in a similar space, so they are probably better off going after the biggest slice that they can together.
