Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week, Elliot and Kolby talk about the strange world of abandonware. Abandonware is a product, typically software, ignored by its owner and manufacturer, and for which no support is available. Although such software is usually still under copyright, the owner may not be tracking copyright violations. The boys look at how third parties offering these titles means that they won’t be lost to time. The legal ramifications and what happens when a company starting paying attention to their forget software again, as seen with Nintendo’s latest lawsuit with ROM distributors. What if the games and series we know and love today one day become abandonware. For all the latest updates as always, head to our official website at checkpointgaming.net.
