Section 8 studio and Aliens: Colonial Marines co-developer TimeGate has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Polygon reports the Sugar Land, Texas-based studio filed on Wednesday with total liabilities ranging from $ 10 million to $ 50 million.
Its top creditors include Epic Games, from which it licensed the Unreal Engine, among other gaming services and developers. TimeGate also owes an “unknown” amount to Section 8 publisher Southpeak Interactive, which Polygon says is likely its most significant liability.
The studio, which was formed in 1998, even owes a local pizzeria $ 34.80.
It’s been a rough few months for TimeGate. Besides working on the roundly panned (sorry, we’re still thinking about pizza) Colonial Marines, it also owes $ 7.35 million to Southpeak for compensatory damages related to Section 8.
TimeGate reportedly laid off about 25 employees in March.

A group called the Coalition to Preserve Arkansas Values has filed a lawsuit in Arkansas Supreme Court trying to get the ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana off the fall ballot, saying it’s misleading and violates federal law.
As you can imagine, those against medical marijuana in Arkansas needs lies to back up their position.
Director of the Arkansas Faith and Ethics Council Larry Page told KARK 4 News that the proposal is a “bad measure based on bad science” and goes on to insist that smoking marijuana is more dangerous than ingesting the synthesized compounds that would be manufactured in its place.
Of course there is absolutely nothing to back up these claims, but those who oppose medical marijuana don’t have much to work with. Cannabis is safer and less addictive than just about any medicine on the market today. So outright lies are the last resort.
Hopefully filing a stack of lies with the Arkansas Supreme Court doesn’t amount to much. Let the voters decide.
Maybe this is how Apple Computer (now Apple, Inc) co-founder Steve Jobs developed the late 1990′s ad slogan of “Think Different” – turns out marijuana was a regular part of Jobs’s life during the 1970s when he and partners Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne were on the verge of creating a computer revolution.
The details of Jobs’s drug use were revealed recently via documentation acquired from the Pentagon (the U.S. Dept of Defense) that investigated …More
LOS ANGELES |
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The California mother of octuplets, dubbed “Octomom,” filed for bankruptcy on Monday, after previously admitting she was on public assistance to support herself and her 14 children.
Nadya Suleman, 36, gave birth to eight babies as a single mother in 2009. But goodwill turned to anger in the media after it was revealed Suleman had undergone fertility treatments when she already had six children, and questions were raised about her ability to provide for her family.
Her children became only the second set of octuplets known to have survived birth in the United States.
Suleman, who lives in the Southern California suburban community of La Habra, has less than $ 50,000 in assets and owes between $ 500,000 and $ 1 million, according to legal papers submitted to U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California and posted at entertainment website E! Online.
Suleman told ABC News last week that she had received $ 4,000 to $ 5,000 a month in public assistance.

MIAMI – Medical marijuana smokers may be one step closer to lighting up legally thanks to a Florida senator, according to a Central Florida News 13 report.
State Senator Larcenia Bullard, D-Miami, recently filed a senate bill to legalize cannabis for medical purposes, in an effort to get it on the 2012 ballot.
Representative Jeff Clemens of Lake Worth also introduced two pieces of legislation—the House Joint Resolution 353 and SJR 1028.
While the opposition says it is a gateway drug that should remain legal, Florida Cannabis Network executive, Jodi James, says the choice should belong to doctors and responsible adults.
We should take tax it, we should control it," James said. "If someone is growing it, it should be there responsibility alone. We believe by regulating it and controlling it we are going to be keeping it out of the hands of children as opposed to an unregulated market."
