The other shoe gets deciphered

It is arguably only a matter of time between WARS and, well, this: GR points to a Virginia-based business paper called Inside Business, which in turn points to Decipher apparently melting down. Those up for a round of tasty schadenfreude can enjoy details like Decipher selling its offices and renting space next door, laying off pretty much everyone (maybe that part is old news), and getting sued by its fans for $4000 in unpaid tournament prizes. (Gaming: vicious because stakes are so small.) It must be said, though, that the silence from Decipher about their financial woes makes me respect companies like Hero and Guardians of Order all the more for being upfront about what they’re going through financially.
