    Tis a shame. While I loved The first couple Rogue games.... the second GC ones sucked up and the Lair was a mistake. *shudders*

    Before I say what I am about to say, I know that rocks will be flung, but I loved Lair (especially after they added joystick control, but no more or less than when it didn't have it), and I loved the Rogue series. Those guys definitely knew how to push a system, and Lair looked amazing for being a launch title. I'll miss those guys.

    So far in the last few weeks:

    3D realms closes doors
    Midway declares bankruptcy, which everyone knew would happen anyways.

    Now this.

    Is this the coming of the apocalypse or something?

    Wow, this is NOT a good year for game companies. I really loved the Rogue Squadron games.
