The Adventures Of Mary Kate&ashley Could Be Yours!

The trustee for the bankrupt publisher Acclaim Entertainment, Allan B. Mendelsohn, has put the rights to more than 200 video game titles up for auction in Oceanside, New York. Famous titles such as 'Crazy Taxi,"? 'Re-Volt,"? and"? 'The Adventures of Mary Kate& Ashley"? are on the block, though Mendelsohn has admitted that he hasn't done complete due diligence on the properties, and thus some of the IP rights may be incomplete or nonexistent. For example, a game that included licensed properties may lack the license to continue using such properties, making the game itself a risky or worthless investment. It's strictly buyer beware, but then again, when has buying a game from Acclaim ever been any different?
