VG Republic Writes: Nordic Games acquired the rights to a bevy of THQ licenses today in the liquidation of the companies assets due to bankruptcy for a rather meager amount considering the fact that they netted 150 individual skews for a total of $4.9 Million Dollars, as reported by Destructoid. The most notable title purchased was that of the Darksiders franchise. Some others included Red Faction, Destroy All Humans, and MX vs. ATV but Darksiders was the title that everyone was eyeing to see who would make the big play for the most recognizable game in THQ’s arsenal. Fans of the franchise had high hopes for someone making a play that could bring the full potential out in the franchise that has seemingly found its place amongst mediocrity. With Nordic Games making the purchase today fan’s heads are hanging a little lower as the publisher that typically works along side DreamCatcher Interactive, that has topped out with its titles within the Painkiller realm and hasn’t published a single AAA title to this point, which is still what Darksiders is considered. It is a huge issue for a franchise that was looking up toward the future, but now seems to be resting in the hands of becoming forgotten.
