It’s been an odd month for me.
On April 30th, my wife and I were driving home from the mall when we passed a gas station that had a new game being played on the small screen.
It was Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge.
I got out of the car to take a look, and when I looked back, the screen was gone.
I could tell it was not on the big screen.
What had happened was the game had been downloaded from a server.
That server, which was run by an unnamed developer called NGE, was in an online store called Superstore.
Superstore is a part of a game store that exists in an open online space called The Vault, which allows anyone to sell games for $2 a pop.
A game can also be sold on a physical disc, and in many cases you can even buy a game from your local computer or mobile phone.
I decided to check the game’s Steam page, and it was there.
After checking out a video from NGE’s developers on the site, I found a message stating that the game was on sale.
It wasn’t until later that I found out what happened to the game, but my wife found it out.
She contacted me via email and was able to explain what had happened and the reasons behind it.
“I was surprised to learn the game is not on sale in The Vault anymore,” wrote Myriam, “I’ve had it available for a few weeks and it’s never been on sale.”
Myrias phone number was also removed from the game store.
“It was one of those things that just kind of happened,” Myriams wife told me, “we had to look into it a bit.”
My wife told The American Tory that they had been in contact with the developers of the game and that they were planning to file a DMCA claim.
The DMCA claims filed against NGE were ultimately dismissed by the court, which ruled that the site was not infringing on any of the company’s intellectual property.
A few days later, Myriums sister contacted the developer and explained what happened.
“They’re still working on getting the game back up and running,” Myria wrote.
“If they can’t get the game to run in The Vaults, we can’t use the game on Steam anymore.”
That’s when Myriami and Myriamell got in touch with The American Conservatives.
“The American Conservatives contacted us, we got back to them, and they told us that the store had been taken down and the game wouldn’t be available for purchase anymore,” Myrieas sister said.
“We contacted Superstore, and we said we don’t have a copy of the license and don’t know if the store is still open.”
The American Tories website is now defunct, but a cached version of the page has been made available online, where it shows the game now has a blacklisted status.
The game has been unavailable for the past few days, and no one is claiming ownership of the domain anymore.
“A lot of people had been talking about it, and there was a lot of excitement about it,” Myriades sister told The Daily Dot.
“But then it’s like, ‘Who’s going to buy it?'”
