Bidding has closed on the bankruptcy auction for defunct publisher THQ's remaining game properties, with the 17 final bids expected to bring in $6 million to $7 million, according to court documents.
I hope SEGA picked up Homeworld
For the pittance of well under $6M, they might as well. THQ sure dragged the Red Faction IP far into the grave with it. Red Faction 1 was an awesome game for its time and I love playing it even today. Guerrilla was pretty good, for what it's worth, too.
Red Faction 1 was the REASON I bought a PS2 awesome game that I enjoyed way more than that Halo game. OK Halo had a nice MP while Red Faction had a great SP. I hope someone plays Red Faction 1 and bring back that type of gameplay. Good story good FPS with some vehicle levels good use of Geo Mod technology good A.I. (for back then). Red faction 1 = CLASSIC!
Please don't give Crytek Darksiders. Graphics are not everything, especially in Darksiders.....
Imagine Darksiders FPS as Strife had guns....
Why not?most of the developers are now working for Crytek.
Crytek are a bunch of graphical purists that don't know the definition of good gameplay, story, universe, etc. These are the kinds of developers that truly think that graphics is what makes a great game. Crysis 2 was one of the most disappointing games I've played this gen.
i agree with NYCgamer, as long as those developers are able to keep what they were doing and the others at Crytek don't stick there noses in it
Recent remark from them. "Graphics are 70 percent of a game" or some higher number. No it's not. Fun and gameplay are. If we want visuals with no story or gameplay then we will go watch a michal Bay movie.....
@KrisButtar That would be nice but Crytek have already shown that they like to immediately stick their noses in and even stop in-development projects of studios they buy.
4AGames showed Crytek how to do graphics, story and atmosphere, all together, and Crysis 3 didn't feel as if Crytek learned anything.
I don't see why not. CryEngine is their business side without it they probably would be in a pretty weak position on the market. Sure graphics are not everything, but visuals don't hurt. Studio strength depends on Crytek's ambition to high talented developers. Individual studios shine brighter than others in many companies. Crytek's new studio with THQ talent could work out well.
Why waste that amount of money just so you can keep those franchises alive. Just create a new game. I am fine if those games were the last we saw of them.
I have to agree with you. Even if they did keep the franchises alive, it would feel like a completely different game because it's a completely different development team.
Nah, i want to see more Darksiders, the whole universe is nice. Even if darksiders 2 was not as good as I thought it would be, Im pretty sure they can improve it in the 3rd game even if its not the same developper.
i loved darksiders 1 and 2 personally. i thought the story was way better in DS1 but i liked everything else better in DS2. either way id be sad if it never returns
I hope Volition Deep Silver bought the Red Faction series.
That might not be so bad actually. DS has grown quite a bit lately and although sometimes a little rough around the edges they publish some enjoyable games. I just want to find out who got what and hopefully nothing good was left for scrap.
i hope a good company got the darksiders and will put much care into the franchise. It could be great.
Darksiders 2 was great and yet it sold really bad... such a shame
Red Faction + Frostbite engine? C'mon EA, put Army of Two to sleep and pick up Red Faction.
Oh please, no. But the Army of Two franchise is dead in the water anyway.
Are you objecting to DICE or EA? And, yes, the Army of Two franchise was a dud from the start.
get a company to get Red Faction and build like 50 story tall building and show off the engine. cause I'm sure the engine can do more than the video games have shown. Edit im talking about Geo-Mod.
Can't say I am a big fan of Darksiders. I respect their work and acknowledge that they are very talented, but they just aren't really the games for me. I would like to see Red Faction continue though. I've never been disappointed with a release. Would like another open world release though. Guerrilla was a pretty cool thing.
Does this mean we will see another darksiders game?
Be cool if Crytek USA got Darksiders IP since its mostly Virgil people there now. What I'm more curious about us who got Destroy All Humans!
i hope we get a ds3 i loved those games
I got the first darksiders game on pc the other day it boggles my mind why people like it just terrible button mashing crap imo..
The first one was pretty lame, the second is supposed to be really good but 1 was so bad no one gave 2 a chance so it tanked.
