    Well, at least Tales from the Borderlands got a physical release on Xbox One, so it isn't completely lost forever.

    I hate seeing games disappear and become unplayable, (One reason why I'm so grateful for stuff like Wiimmfi and Riiconnect bringing back functionality to stuff like Dr. Mario Online RX, and many others)
    and I speculate they're being pulled due to licensing expiring, so there's not a lot to be done to keep them playable.. legally.

    Well, I guess we're gonna see every site that hosts "legal*" game downloads flooded with these titles for a bit.

    Crappy games, when you basically don't have any creativity so you try to turn your fa'fics of already existing bad bad francjises into a clickity click game, it doesn't work, not everyone is gonna like your fan fic.

    The Sam & Max games were actually really good. So were most of their older games.

    Granted, after Tales of the Walking Dead, they started repeating the same formulas way too much and sadly became quite samey.

    inside your crappy old PC
    saddly i bet you can still get a strike for pirating TT games even if the company is no more and no one aquires the license

    almost all of their work is licensed stuff so it obviously still belongs to someone

    Big question on everyone's minds: Why did telltale not file for chapter 11 bankruptcy so they could continue making games and just redo their management? Board of directors? Shareholders? Where is the common sense?! Now they are removing their games from steam... absurd. It's almost like majority of the OG workers (management) got sick of doing video games and decided to shut down the company. They literally put so many people out of work but, welcome to the world of video game design industry where there is no job security even if the game you worked on is super popular...

    No, i am certain that upper management had a type of pyramid scheme going on and pulled out once they took all the money out of the company in the form of bonuses and raises to themselves... Remember, this studio was started by a couple of disgruntled Lucas Arts employees... I guess those same employees finally pulled out and literally sunk the company in the process... CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY?! HELLO?! YOU'RE BASED IN AMERICA, USE YOUR RIGHTS AND FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY EVERY BUSINESS GETS A SECOND CHANCE BUT HEY, Im just ranting...
    holy shit im glad someone else said it, They're not just bad at managing money, they are literally being self entitled the higher pyramid schemers- i mean upper management oops...
