I'm wondering what specifically happened to the Red Faction and Destroy All Humans IPs.

I wonder if the Red Faction IP might had been lumped into the Volition sale, as they made the games. It doesn't necessarily mean anything but it gives me hope and would keep it 'in house' so to speak at the same time.

I have no clue with Destroy all Humans though as its developer is dead (Pandemic) and there was no mention of it all. Hopefully it didn't just die off as it was fun, its own weird way.

here it is in video format in-case you didn't feel like reading all of that - http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Hope Homefront 2 turns out to be good.. the first one was not that bad, had some fun on the multi-player.. (So it will be interesting to see if Crytek can make it good enough to run with Black Ops 2 and Battlefield 3)

Farewell THQ, you made good games and brought a lot of smiles to gamers everywhere, you will be missed. Here's hoping those who lost their jobs get back on their feet hopefully back into the gaming industry where they can utilize their talents further.

THQ + Wrestling games on the N64 were the Best! Wrestlemania 2000 was and will always be my favorite. Yea most people preferred No Mercy, but 2000 had the better Create-A-Character mode which was my favorite thing to do. I'd spend hours recreating classic wrestlers like the Road Warriors.

Hopefully Sega will keep the Warhammer coming, I'd like to see a sequel to Space Marine, I thought it was a good game, good story. Fix a couple of minor gameplay issues and you got a superb game on your hands... Sad to see what happened to THQ, I liked alot of the games....

i think relic will do good things for sega. i know im buying coh2

Only reason for Vigil not to receive bids I'm guessing would be because it must be laden with debt or something else we don't know about in the small print. :/

Now its a case of waiting to see if anyone buys the Darksiders IP rights for cheap.
