One of the greatest games to ever grace the Nintendo 64 has returned in the form of a 1080p PC remaster of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. It’s just as ridiculous as I remember it, only now it’s bigger.
Back in the early 2000s one company ruled when it came to getting attention. From pigeons trained to ruin Wimbledon to people paid to change their names to Turok, Acclaim was the king of press-baiting PR.
Copying scenes from movies, and putting their 8-bit replicas into their licensed video games was a bit of thing back in the NES era. NYC-based artist Brother Brain started a series where he compares these particular scenes using animated GIFs.
A $3 million settlement by Playdom, the Disney social games studio, sends a pretty clear message that the U.S. Child Online Privacy Protection Act isn't messing around. Violate it, and it will be expensive.
Acclaim is hanging out their "Please Pardon Our Re-Development" signs on their MMO The Chronicles of Spellborn, transforming it into a free-to-play, transaction-based game by next year.
Apparently 7 free levels weren't enough to entice players to pay up, as Acclaim raises the free-to-play level cap for The Chronicles of Spellborn to 9.9.
Sci Fi has partnered with Accalim Games and ZooKazoo to develop a series of online science fiction and fantasy games for their website.
Acclaim has begun slowly letting people into the North American closed beta test for The Chronicles of Spellborn, with the beta client now available for those hoping to get in early.

Why spend a couple hundred dollars on plastic instruments when you can play a browser-based band rhythm game and play for free? This is the question put forth by Acclaim's latest online game, Rockfree.
Believe it or not, it's not that copy of The Simpsons: Virtual Bart with the giant 62,790 yen price tag. That particular Sega Genesis (read: Mega Drive) game is a mere $600 and change in U.S. dollars; it's the Japanese copy of Maximum Carnage, at right, another batch of licensed Acclaim schlock that was going for an…
Times like this I wish they had just flat-out refused to sell former Activision CEO Howard Marks the Acclaim name back in 2005. Acclaim Games has just launched MyDivaDoll, a web-based online game described in the announcement email as "The Game of Attitude, Fashion, & Interior Design". Create your own diva, buy here…
Dontcha just love it when top execs start commenting on someone else's financials? Opinionated Acclaim chief David Perry ain't above it, in fact he used his keynote address at the Games Convention Developer's Conference to declare that Sony will never make real dough off the PlayStation 3, 10-year plan or no.
There's a tidy piece up over on Gamasutra, detailing Howard Marks' plans to resurrect the Acclaim brand name. While the original company went bust in 2006, Marks plans on capitalising on the brand name to leverage titles that are less about cartoony basketball players and more about...pony-based MMOs.
