Goodbye THQ: Deep Silver’s Big Gamble and What’s Next for South Park

While we’ve known it was coming for quite a while, we’re sad to say that THQ is dead. The publisher’s studios and IPs have been picked up by other companies, and the company is set to dissolve. Daily Reaction‘s Seb and Dan discuss the collapse, the sale and the future of THQ’s IPs.
-PSLS (Deep Silver, Dev, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, South Park: The Stick of Truth, THQ, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Yeah and metro last light best not get screwed up because it is going to be awesome. And i am pretty sure company of heroes and south park will do fairly well too. I love that south park is an rpg and everyone who has played CoH has said that it is shaping up really well. Heres to hoping. But metro last light would be a terrible loss. Though everything looks on track as of now. I will bet its better tham dead space 3 or crysis 3.

Apparently Platinum are interested in buying Darksiders and Volition of the price is right.

RIP THQ why did you had to died and EA, actisvion, and crapcom are still around

Because they suck at adapting

i absolutely loved Deep silvers Dead Island IP ..so i am kinda stoked to see how it goes with the aquisistion now.. tbh didn't know they had that kind of money to invest in another company,good for them =)
doctorstrange  +   1115d ago
I think they don't, but their parent company (Koch Media) does. Looks like they want to enter the big leagues
Lou Ferrigno  +   1115d ago
and Rightfully so they should.. The more the marrier i say. :)

I liked Dead Island to but its scary that they worked on that game for over 4 years and it came out so buggy. Fun but very buggy.
Lou Ferrigno  +   1115d ago
allthough i agreed with you because the ps3 version was Buggy (especially for how long it was in development) but it wasn't as buggy as most people made it out to be..

I beat the ps3 version and put over 150 hours into that game and barely encountered any bugs durring my time w/it.. Maybe everyone was goinng on about the PC version?.. they never made a game with that magnitude before so i'm sure (or at least hoping) that Riptide will be more solid and bugged out.. =)

Saint's Row is all that I'm worried about. Other than that my favorite THQ games were way back on the N64. Those were some fine wrestling games. It does suck to see another company fall but oh well.

A concern of mine is that Deep Silver (the new publisher of Metro: Last Light) has a history of publishing buggy games (i.e. Gothic 3, Dead Island, Risen). Silver lining is that 4AGames is still the developer for Metro: Last Light (as they were the developer for Metro 2033). The concern I have with this is that I hope the buggy games were due to developer incompetence and not unrealistic release goals set forth by the publisher. If you are curious about the new owner of the Metro series "Koch Media" and their software division "Deep Silver" here is a link to their wiki sight:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

I must add that I love the three games I mentioned above. But if you have played them you will know that they were slammed for bugs. Gothic 3 took a community patch to make it is what it is today and Dead Island, although hardly buggy for my experience on PC, was slammed by a lot for bugs such as losing saved games.

Sony should have bought Darksiders.
David Jaffe could have directed DS3 and make it a B3AST.
Get it a 90 on metacritic and have it sell 5 mil copies.
Ck1x  +   1115d ago
David Jaffe, now there's a name you don't hear to often anymore!

Glad relic went to sega.

What about 4A?? Please no EA? no!
animegamingnerd  +   1115d ago
deep silver got 4A
doctorstrange  +   1115d ago
Nope, 4A is independent, so no worries there. But DS are publishing 4A's game
Rivitur  +   1115d ago
Which actually makes sense that Deep Silver is publishing it because they published S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky and since the guys over at 4A are some of the same guys from GSC they have some relation with them.
