The Saints are back in Stilwater with chaos and mayhem to spread. In the likely last chapter to be released on Xbox 360s and PS3, the Saints have a new menace and it came from outer space! What is going on here -- isn’t this series bizarre enough already?
An indie developer called teamPixel decided to appeal to the masses so they could place a competitive bid in the THQ auction for Homeworld. Sadly, they have failed and will be issuing refunds to all the kind people who donated.
A few of THQ’s IPs are still floating around, abandoned in the games industry ether after the studio went bankrupt. One of their most well received IPs, Darksiders, is one of them, and it is drawing the attention of some pretty big names in game development.
THQ confirmed that they are selling the remainder of their intellectual properties, with the sales expected to finished by mid-May. Franchises up for grabs include Destroy All Humans, MX, Darksiders, Red Faction, Big Beach Sports, and Summoner. Licensed software include Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet, Nancy Drew: The Hidden Staircase, and Supreme Commander.
After the smoke had cleared in the THQ asset auction, both the Vigil Studio and its Darksiders franchise were left without a home. If Platinum Games gets its way, that might not be the case for very long.
In the hustle and bustle that was Wednesday's deconstruction of THQ's assets, a few games, like the WWE franchise, were left out of the madness. Now reports indicate there could be a major sports developer stepping in to take over the wrestling series.
