Much like explosive diarrhoea, there happens to be bits of THQ everywhere now. The company is dead, and it’s various games and license have been scattered to the winds of other gaming studios and publishers. Well, most of them anyway. THQ still has a few properties left that no one wanted the first time that they had an auction, so they’re going to be trying once again to kick them out the door one more time.
There’s still some meat left in the carcass of THQ, and that includes Darksiders, Homeworld and Red Faction. Those properties will be going under the hammer separately, while THQ will also offer a super-sized deal for a bundle that includes Big Beach Sports, Summoner and Destroy all humans. A Marvel Super Hero pack is also on the cards, alongside licensed packs of Supreme Commander, Worms and “more”.
THQ says that they’ve got “100 expressions of interest”, regarding these various unloved titles, according to Kotaku. Man, I hope someone snatches up Red Faction, even though Geoff believes that it’s a “Red Fraction” of its former glory. Oh, and Homeworld. Let that indie studio have it THQ. So I can jam it on my iPad when I play Darksiders with my toilet seat.
Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
