Actually Cryptic wasn't floundering it was one the few entities that was creating capitol Atari sold them because the desperately need cash right now.

PWI buying them is basically like waking up one day and finding that Warren Buffet is your long lost uncle and thinks you are the single most awesome person on the planet, what I'm trying o say is there development budgets have just increased ten fold. And PWI is pretty hands off Runic has often praised PWI for there support and non-intrusiveness to Torchlight.

Honestly a lot of failing MMO developers would kill to be in Cryptics shoes right now.

Frak you Call of Duty! Nice plan to get everyone playing for free, fattening themselves up on gameplay and then poisoning them with your "elite pay" club. I'll pass and continue playing battlefield.

People are still upset over the Elite thing even after they found it it's not pay for play multiplayer but something more like bungie.net/bungie pro ?

It's a clear step towards pay for play. We already know they want to make it happen.

Activision: WTF the PSN just went back up today, what have we got?

Stooge: Well this upcoming weekend will be a CODBLOPS double xp week..

Activision: FUCK THAT. Make it free and make it happen now, BEFORE THE WEEKEND.
That should fuck Sony good.

Stooge: But sir we also make products for the entire Sony brand?!

Activision: Meh, we've got Bungie now. Between them and Battle.net we don't need "Phony" or their lackluster hardware. We're going back to the PC boys where the real money is.
