THQ Is Dead, Long Live THQ

The dust has settled, THQ has been broken down into its component parts (IPs in this case) and redistributed across a fairly broad spectrum within the gaming industry. Some of those moves have been met with joy, such as Koch taking over Metro: Last Light. Whilst others have met almost universal revulsion, such as Homeworld going to Gearbox. The specifics of where everything went, for the purpose of this article, are mostly irrelevant. Not to say none of it matters of course, just that the minutiae of the details are a story for another time. The most important part is that everything, every last little bit, including a hefty majority of their former staff. All of it has found new homes. So yes, THQ is dead, but it is not gone. Or rather, their legacy will live on. (Industry, PC, PS3, THQ, Wii, Xbox 360)

whoever was the recent new head of THQ ran it to the ground as soon as he took over, the bastard. I just kept hearing bad news after bad news about delays and canceling IPs (darksiders) then this happened. So unfortunate for the people who lost their jobs.
