Luke: "The PC multiplayer service suddenly ceased working for many older games. There was no statement issued from GameSpy, Inc, which is owned by Glu Mobile." (PC)

Not really gamespy's fault.. its the company that bought gamespy from IGN's fault.

That really sucks...

Nothing worse than a game you've been playing for years with a small community suddenly going down :/

RIP Amplitude

I think Borderlands 1 uses Gamespy (I just recently purchased it... don't judge me!!!) on PC. So... if you guys are looking to grab the online/co-op steam achievements, that means you have to mod in splitscreen support.

borderlands isnt really considered an older game, i think they mean games from early 2000's to late 90's maybe?

Oh, I see, thanks.
I thought they meant more recent games, kinda like how EA was shutting down servers for those.

GameSpy functions?!?

So Gamespy is purchased by some wannabe developer, the wannabe developer jacks prices up, the smaller devs get screwed... If you want to blame anyone, blame GLU!

Devoed. Never really liked Neverwinter Nights' main story but I would've liked to gone back an played a few mods with the homies over a snowy weekend or something.

Who's this GLU company then? *looks up*

I've come across one or two of their games on android. They make decent games but they take the whole 'Enjoy our games for free, pay $50,000 for in game items' approach to gaming.

As long as supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars is still working online I'm happy.
