While we've spent most of the week bringing you good news and updates about your favourite games, I must now be the bearer of bad news as I bring news of yet another upcoming server closure. After the end of Happy Hour and Big Game events left two discontinued achievements
in World Series of Poker: Full House Pro
in July, most of you had already seen the writing on the wall. Today, the development team at Pipeworks announced that the game's servers will be closing for good on March 4th, 2015.
As the game is totally dependent on online servers, no features of the game or the game service will work past that date. This means that all of the game's achievements will become discontinued. Also, from this point onwards, players will be unable to purchase Gold from the game's marketplace. You will still be able to use any previously purchased Gold up until the point that the servers close.
The Windows 8 version of the game has been delisted from the Games Store, presumably as a result of this news. At the time of writing, the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the title still remains available for download from here
Since we're in a bad mood, I may as well tell you that another Xbox LIVE Arcade title met a grisly fate this week as it became the latest victim to be removed from the Games Store. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD
is no longer available for download. We're unsure of the reasons behind the game's removal, but as the game's page has been removed completely from Xbox.com, we're pretty certain that it won't be returning anytime soon.
