Right? I didn't even think it was a real company any more.
It definitely feels like a "let's throw something at the wall this month and see what sticks" kind of company anymore. I am, somewhat, happy with this purchase as it puts them a little more back into the game development sector but I also took notice of the fine print of the PR that this is just a part of a grander financial plan which seems to be an ongoing challenge for them.
