    I'm guessing that CD-key re-sellers will make a fortune on keys from collectors, IF they find out of this in time AND choose to up their prices before the collectors rush and grab it while it's cheap. (Last time I saw, a steam key for Tales from the Borderlands was 2euros for a steam key).
    Checked out now, the cheapest was 11euros, so re-sellers already upped the prices a bit.
    Best example of re-sellers getting big money from delisted steam games is Dark Souls PTD (the original before the remaster), starting from a whopping 170euros for a key and 70euros for a gift. And FYI there were listings for 200-300+ euros too, which have all been sold out, so yeah...a poor collector got broke and a re-seller got a bit richer.

    No, I won't say that, but licensing issues are just a joke for these situations. Company goes to crap and their games go down with them, digital games are a bane on gaming society, esp. when they never get renewed or picked up by another company. Physical games are superior in this regard.

    A good way to do that as well, the only Telltale game I'm really a fan of is Sam and Max in all honesty.

    I get that most of these are licenses of some kind and there's always legal nonsense involved with those, but is Puzzle Agent not an original series? I remember playing that on the iPhone way back when.

    Lets not forget that Tell Tale games had a formula that worked once and every game after that was cookie cutter the same with different franchises.

    Chances are that the games are only temporarily de-listed so that they can be re-uploaded by the current holders of the IP rights, we've seen this happen before. One or two will probably slip between the cracks, but I suspect we'll see them back on storefronts soon enough.

    You wouldn't Download a Car Yes you f***ing would I did and seriously bottlenecked my PC and Network it brought everything to stand still.

    This is why Game Sharing and Physical Releases past there Revenue expectency ie. Retro Games should not be illegal and necessary.
