    A rescue deal that was put forth by private equity firm OpCapita appears to have been declined by GAME, who are yet once more on the edge of collapsing. It’s not completely apparent why GAME rejected that offer, which would have acted as a lifeline for them lifeline. There’s still minute ray of hope for the company as Walmart and GameStop are still to give their proposal.

    By the way, sourcing what is essentially a blog is asking for a shit source. Use their sources, if they're reliable.

    Also, quit being so damn desperate to post news topics. You continuously leave them sloppy, forget sources, and post very irrelevant information.

    Well always taking a rescue plan may not be the best option. Sometimes it's just easier to go bankrupt or sell the whole company :)

    "I'll give you money, but you'll give me all profit for the next 10 years. If there is some kind of negative in revenues, I can bail any time and take my money". Seems legit :creep:

    If you want to get in the staff of news, yes I feel like you want it. Take the time to post it.

    Quality over quantity.

    I've actually been discussing what's gonna happen to GAME with my friends recently. I'm really hoping they get bought out by GameStop, seeing how Wal-Mart's always
    seemed incompetent when it comes to gaming. :blink:

    Yet another shitty-ass news post.
    There's a fucking template for a reason, Jesus. Use it.

    Anyways, GAME are fuck stupid for not taking this offer. Like OP
    But honestly IDGAF about whether they sink, as they've always been a shit company.

    If it's too much trouble to use the news template, then... I don't know, don't post news?
