I Wish Nintendo Would Buy THQ...

While the smart money says that Ubisoft will be the one who comes out with THQ in the end — which probably isn’t a bad thing — my inner fanboy is rooting for another company to win this prizefight. While If the best home for THQ’s vagabond games is the company where they’ll do the most “good,” then I think there’s a publisher that would be a better fit...

You want Dawn of War III? Too bad. Here's a Pikmin spin-off built with THQ's strategy engine.

Another Metro? Sorry, THQ is stuck making Metroid: Other Metro.

Company of Heroes? More like Amusement Park of Heroes featuring chibi versions of beloved Nintendo characters...oh wait, that would be the sequel to NintendoLand.

Why not?

It only means more games, but with Nintendo leading it. It just means GREAT GAMES.

@Dedicated

Really, Nintendo does this? When have they done this to any game they took control of?

The Wii had its fair share of hardcore, adult games and the WiiU is trying desperatly to recapture it's hardcore audience.

Unless you were trying to be funny.

Zhipp2141d ago

Let's be realistic. Nintendo wouldn't buy an entire production company just to churn out more spinoffs of their own franchises. If Ninty were to buy THQ(I seriously doubt they will) they'd most likely end up making pretty much the same kinds of games that THQ is known for today, only exclusive to Nintendo's platforms.

Aww! Double-post! I never thought it would happen to me!

Thumbs up for the Dawn of War reference.

Dawn of war 1 and Dark crusade are my favorite PC games ever......

They better not take away base building in DoW 3.....

CaptainN2141d ago

Funny I think it was Nintendo that helped push Conkers Bad Fur Day and it actually became a Mature title underneath Nintendo's umbrella....as before it was a kiddy game! Also was it not the same company that pushed Goldeneye and Perfect Dark.....and also published Killer Instinct???

Was it not this same Nintendo that helped push Eternal Darkness and Geist????

Is this not the same Nintendo that is helping publish Bayonetta 2 right now???

Your logic is baffling to say the least.

Saying "I wish [big 3 company] would buy [big publisher]" is tantamount to saying "I wish [big three company] was closer to being a monopoly"

PopRocks3592141d ago (Edited 2141d ago )

Frankly I wish ANY company would buy out THQ. They have some talented people there who don't deserve to lose their jobs.

Satisfied?

@SilentNegotiator [below]

I was merely responding to your criticism of the statement. Frankly I don't think it's so bad to wish a company would buyout another company in serious need of financial assistance.

SilentNegotiator2141d ago

I wasn't targeting any of your comments specifically (unless you're the author?) so I don't know where this "Satisfied?" crap is coming from....

THQ just needs to trim the fat, gravely.

pikey2141d ago

theres no fat to be trimmed. they filed for bankruptcy and the company no longer appears on the stock market. Meaning unless its bought up, its will be gone forever.

What Panda said...

Sorry to the Nintendo fans and fanboys. I do NOT want to even think about Sony owning THQ and probably restricting Saints Row titles and Darksiders to be exclusive to them.

Games that THQ make are great games that completely deserve to be as multiplatform as possible.

Pandamobile2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

Because that would mean every new THQ game would be on a Nintendo platform.

I love THQ games, but not enough to buy a Wii U.

games4thought2141d ago

Well that's kind of the point. I don't think Nintendo is giving consumers enough reasons to buy a Wii U. The last generation of console was defined, in part, by the decline of the console exclusive. Making every game platform agnostic forces all consoles to work the same way, which kind of defeats the purpose of having different consoles.

Pandamobile2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

Sorry for the double post. Train internet is shoddy.

Triple post apparently :I

Interesting thought, but it will never happen unfortunately. I would much sooner believe Nintendo would purchase SEGA.

shackdaddy2142d ago

Nah. I don't want their games to become exclusives. That would be really annoying for me.

THQ needs to be bought by a 3rd party company that's not Ea or Activision. Pipe dream would be that Valve buys but I'm almost 100% certain they won't...
