Acclaim Officially Dead And Gone

Looks like Acclaim is more or less dead now. Following trouble and then acquisition by Playdom, news is the publisher has pulled the plug on all the developer's catalogue. A message on what was the official Acclaim site reads:
"We regret to inform you that all Acclaim games will no longer be in service effective August 26, 2010."
So best start forgetting about that brand.

Acclaim was founded back in 1987 and had a mix of great and mediocre titles with hits including Turok and Burnout 1 and 2 but also included titles such as BMX XXX which was more or less a BMX game with topless female riders and found itself pulled from many store shelves.
