UPDATE [05/23/19]: Telltale’s Bone titles and Tales from the Borderlands have already been removed from Steam today.
GOG.com Team member Chandra broke the bad news in a forum post this morning that all remaining Telltale Games titles will be removed from the DRM-free service next Monday, May 27th. The below titles will be joining other Telltale releases that have already been delisted including Back to the Future, Game of Thrones, Tales of Monkey Island, and many more.
Sadly, we need to inform you that, due to company’s closure, all the remaining Telltale titles will be delisted from our catalog on Monday, May 27, 10am UTC.
The titles are as follows: the Wolf Among Us, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Hector: Badge of Carnage, the Batman series, Sam & Max series, Puzzle Agent series, Tales from the Borderlands, and Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People.
For everyone who purchased any of said titles prior to delisting, the games will remain in their GOG library.
While these games are currently still available on Steam and console platforms, they probably won’t be around for much longer. Grab them while you can if you’d like to have a digital copy, or keep them around a bit longer with one of the disc-based console releases.
Thanks to @MrFortyFive for pointing this one out on Twitter. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and I’ll begin the work on game pages for each title as they roll off into the sunset.
In a rather unceremonious fashion Razer, who acquired Ouya’s staff and library of titles in 2015, has confirmed that online services and storefronts for the Ouya, as well as the Android-based Forge TV and the MadCatz MOJO will be shut down on June 25th, 2019. The Razer support page is appreciably flush with answers but not so many explanations. Why are they being shut down? The FAQ offers only that the “game stores are no longer being supported”, and that’s that. No apology, no “thanks for your support”; clearly Razer is shoring up its financial loose ends here.
You can read the full Q&A below but if you own any of these platforms here is Razer’s critical piece of advice:
“Your account will be deactivated on June 25, 2019. After this date, you will no longer be able to access your account, games on the server, previously purchased titles, or be able to purchase new ones. You will continue to have access to games that have been downloaded. Users should download games before June 25, 2019 to avoid losing access after the shutdown.”
I’m glad to see that the consoles will continue to work as long as the games have been downloaded. For anyone looking to grab their past purchases, here’s my critical piece of advice: USB storage. The Ouya and Forge TV both support USB hard drives but unfortunately the MOJO doesn’t appear to.
Another Telltale Games title joins the site this week in the aftermath of the company’s 2018 closure. Minecraft: Story Mode was delisted from Steam on April 29th and according to a GOG.com forum post, it’ll be removed from the good ol’ service on May 3rd at 10am UTC. The post cites expired licensing from Minecraft IP holders, Microsoft and Mojang, and includes the full Season One title, the Adventure Pass, and Season Two.
All content is available for the time being on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, on PlayStation 3 and 4 from the PlayStation Store, and on Nintendo Switch and Wii U from the eShop. Unfortunately, it looks like the Nintendo editions have already been delisted in Europe but they remain available on all other consoles. You can also find some Steam download codes on Amazon along with the retail versions of the games on consoles.
Thanks to @MrFortyFive for pointing this one out on Twitter.
Something wicked this way comes. Or so it seems as Nintendo has been removing hundreds of store pages from nintendo.com for DSiWare games, including their older news posts about them. Based on my own research and a submission from site reader Alex, the pages started disappearing in late March. It’s a real shame as these pages were among the only places left to see how DSiWare games were presented on release.
The good news is that the majority of DSiWare games are still available to buy directly from the Nintendo 3DS eShop… but for how much longer? With the 3DS hobbling into old age and a barren release lineup for 2019, it would probably be best to pick up any DSiWare titles that catch your interest as soon as possible.
To help, I’ve recorded two new videos: the first showing how to search for DSiWare titles from a Nintendo 3DS, and the second, a full scroll through the currently available 455 North American DSiWare games. And for just a few recommendations, here are some fan-favorite and easily forgotten titles I found while browsing:
Cult favorite Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ
PopCap’s Plants vs Zombies, Bejeweled Twist, Bookworm, and Slingo Quest
The oft-forgotten SteamWorld Tower Defense
The digital incarnation of Hudson’s famed Shooting Watch
The well-rated, 4-part, Action/RPG series Anonymous Notes – From the Abyss-
Loads of music sequencers like Rhythm Core Alpha, Rytmik, Jam Space, and Music On
Mobile game favorites including the Bloons series, Flight Control, and Cut the Rope!
Nintendo’s own Game & Watch, Electroplankton, and Art Style titles (PiCTOBiTS highly recommended)
The stylish and absurd Valet Parking 1989
The addictive puzzle classic, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
WayForward’s fledgling Mighty Milky Way
And all of Nintendo’s bizarre “calculator” and “calendar” apps
Criterion Games took to Twitter on April 17th to announce that multiplayer servers for the original 2008 versions of Burnout Paradise would be shut down on August 1st, 2019. The tweet pretty much says it all:
Burnout Paradise fans, after over 11.5 years of service, the servers for the original 2008 game will be closing on August 1st 2019. That affects Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions. Offline play will still be available of course, and Burnout Paradise Remastered servers are unaffected.
That’s one incredibly long run for multiplayer servers, especially considering that Burnout Paradise Remastered has been out for over a year at this point. Perhaps they saw that the most active fans had already switched over to the remastered version? Whatever the case, we can only hope that online play for Remastered holds out even half as long as the original.
I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar for anyone still trying to polish off those multiplayer Achievements and Trophies from last gen.
