Here's Storm Warning, which played right after Robot Laser Death before the Magicka test stream yesterday. (That was the chiptune-ish over filthy dubstep one.)

They're all sold out in my area, aside from one copy in one store that was already reserved. Multiple stores also told me the game's been discontinued and no more copies are being made.
I do have an (out-of-stock) order in with Amazon, so if they ever get more copies, I might see one that way. But EB Games, Future Shop, and Best Buy are all showing not available. :(
Actually reading through the complaint: wow. wow. There are counts of larceny and racketeering in here, even. They're suing their own legal counsel and their own executive director in addition to the 38 folks; the basic allegation is that 38 knew very well that $75 million wasn't enough, that they'd run out of money, but lied to the state of Rhode Island and said it would get them through.
I say go for it. I've been slowly working on Dark Souls on and off for months now, picking it up from time to time and playing a bit more. It's a great "slow burn" game, and if you really want to be obsessive and go for all the achievements (I'm not, but hey) it's apparently 200-300 hours of game.
Also, enough people are still playing that (if you play on-line) the multiplayer bits are still good. There are still messages, invasions, people to invade, all that...
Eh, I think it's only natural. If you think about it, we've got a shared love of video games, and probably more cultural aspects than that--if you didn't like anything else they talked about, you wouldn't be here; there are a million other video game sites out there. And they've worked hard to create a community, with the forums, the wiki, the e-mail responses, TNT, all that kind of stuff (and having premium members, which invites us in to some theoretical inner circle). We've probably got as much in common with them on some basic level as we do with a lot of our friends.
To put it more simply: if for some weird reason I suddenly ended up at a table with one or more of them, I'd at least have something to have a conversation about. It's a great community we've got going on here.
Or, if you'd rather be more crass and cynical about it, that's exactly what they would want--we build all the content of their website (and, for the mods, moderate it) for them for free, and some of us even pay for it. But it's less fun to think of it that way.
In either case, that's the culture they chose to establish when they built it and it's one the community's bought into. So worry less about it and have fun }:D
