This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

Wait I just realized someone actually bought the Homeland License but no one went in for Darksiders.

They own Deep Silver, not besides Dead Island most of their stuff has been shit, but I do have hope that they're trying to put out better games.

So what you're saying is they sold Saints Row to the people who made Dead Island, a game that I despise. That bodes well.

But they sold Volition to Koch as well, so unless they are complete morons SR4 will be fine.

Actually, Warhammer 40K might revert back to Game Workshop depending on the contract they had. Right now South Park Studios is suing THQ to get all the assets for the Stick of Truth because of their contract.

Even the WWE license was snatched up. Now the weird part is that it was by Take2.

Also Warb, if I boycotted every publisher for releasing a game I don't like I'd be left with Valve.

Sadness. I've gotten a lot of respect for THQ. In the light of this, the humble bundle thing especially seems like a good-guy corporate move to get all their games out there, in case they'd be trapped in limbo after their closure. The development studios all seems in good hands (no EA or Activision on there), 'cept for the Darksiders guys, so I guess it's not too bad.

Good night sweet prince.

I'm just really hoping Blizzard takes Darksiders because they could get the artstyle down easy.

Good night sweet prince.

Those studios are lucky when you think how many THQ had already shuttered.

I am surprised that none of the big guys jumped in on some of the bids.

Sarcasm, don't worry.

Mixed with genuine denial. I am sad to see THQ go, and I really didn't want to believe it's death was near.

I was hoping it wasn't near but with the bankruptcy announcement and then companies complaining about not being allowed to buy any property I knew they weren't going to survive in any recognizable form. I'm surprised WBIE didn't jump in on any properties.

That sounds worse than fading off into the abyss. They work in similar genres but that doesn't mean that their ideology is similar.

I really dont want to see "Fury" Running around in a skin tight leather body suit. Her concept may show skimpy armor but looks way more badassed and somehow more practical than Bayonetta
