The Bloke From Dawson’s Creek Has Just Bought A Shed Load Of Rubbish Video Games

As I am sure you are aware we are all living in a cheese dream alternative time line where the bloke from The Apprentice runs the USA, the U.K. is leaving Europe, and you can rollercoaster around a ducks vagina in VR. With that in mind you really shouldn’t be surprised by the news that Pacey from Dawson’s Creek has just bought the rights to the game of Street Fighter: The Movie.

To be more specific, the Liquid Media Group, of which Joshua Jackson is chairman, have bought the rights to 65 games from Throwback Entertainment, who had previously bought them from Acclaim.

“So many people, myself included, are returning to the classics,” said Joshua, “The nostalgia brought on by this resurgence in retro games connects us to our childhoods – and creates incredible demand.”

You can see the full list of games below but they not bought the rights for games such as Bubble Bobble outright, these are specific SKUs, so in Bubble Bobble’s case it’s only the PC version. It sounds like they will be re-releasing or remastering some of the games, but no one wants the Street Fighter: The Movie game back, it was terrible.

Here’s the full list of SKU’s they have bought for a rather eye watering $1 million. Many of them are licensed games, such as Antz Racing or the NBA games, re-releasing them is going to be a legal nightmare.

  1. Seems like Wetrix would be the obvious choice for a comeback.

    • Wetrix was owned by Ocean, who were bought by Infogrames – who went bust and were bought by Atari, but then Atari had problems and were Atari Europe were bought by Bandai Namco.

      Then the rest of Atari went tits up and they sold off loads of franchises to all sorts of people, so heaven knows if Liquid Media have the full rights to Wetrix, might just be for one platform.

  2. Street Fighter: The Movie game might have been terrible, but it actually looks considerably better than Street Fighter: The Movie movie.
