LBO and Rising Star Games

 

LBO and Rising Star Games have partnered to bring 17 PC games from Rising Star Games’ catalog to the Last Best Offer (LBO) name-your-price storefront. This deal makes Rising Star Games the seventh publisher to join Last Best Offer in their battle against gray market code sellers. Last Best Offer CEO, Alex Childs had this to say about their unusual approach to selling video games:

“Our goal is simple, we want to get people great deals on great games, without forcing them to wait for the next sale. We want to help awesome publishers like Rising Star Games reach more customers and guard against gray market interference.”

He also had some comments about the partnership with Rising Star Games:

“We asked some of our early adopters what they want to see from LBO, and their response was clear, they want to see an even wider catalog of titles. That is why we are so thrilled to be working together with Rising Star Games. Few publishers out there can offer such a diverse catalog of titles, and we can’t wait to see the reaction from our audience!”

Rising Star Games’ Managing Director, Martin Defries, also had some things to say about the new LBO and Rising Star Games partnership:

“It’s been great working in close partnership with LBO to fine tune and deliver a comprehensive catalog of titles with engaging content that we’re known and loved for. It’s a very exciting time for digital retail and LBO enters the digital marketplace with a different approach. Giving their audience a chance to negotiate a price breaks all of the traditional molds for consumers to get the best deals.”

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
