 Earlier this week, SouthPeak Interactive Corporation announced the acquisition of Gamecock Media Group.    


Gamecock, publishers of such titles as Dementium: The Ward and Mushroom Men, are "thrilled to be joining forces with SouthPeak." Bringing original titles to the market from independent developers is a common goal shared by both companies. SouthPeak, known for publishing independent titles, stated they "are excited to give the Gamecock titles a bigger platform to succeed". Gamecock titles currently in production include Velvet Assassin, Legendary, and individual Mushroom Men titles for both Wii and DS.    


Mike Wilson, CEO of Gamecock admitted that both companies had been keeping an eye on one another for the past two years and that the combination of their companies will result in a "very strong and well-rounded force" for the gaming market.

Southpeak + Gamecock can only mean terrible euphemisms.

Are they going to change their to Cockpeak?
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!
