Saints Row 3 Might Save THQ

Are you ready for this? It's ... good news about THQ's finances. The release of the massive new installment in the Saints Row series may just provide the push needed to bail THQ out of its financial crisis. (Dev, Industry, PC, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, THQ, Xbox 360)

Good news lets hope Darksiders 2 does as good. Just happy THQ IP's like darksiders,saints row and metro out of the greedy hands of EA hopefully.

Darksiders 1 didn't break the 1 million mark so the sequel probably won't sell enough to make as much of a difference as Saints Row 3 has already sold over 4 million.

I bought saints row 3, beat it too. Fun game. Best game THQ has made in about 10 years. Thq sucks.

So because gamers bought the DLC they were able to partially save THQ? See buying DLC does have its goodness.

This may be good for THQ, but if you go to the Saint's Row forums and read what the long-time SR fans have to say about this game and the way they handled DLC you'd see a lot of unhappy people, me included.

They are really handling this badly from a fan perspective. The latest DLC they released costs $2.99 I believe, and do you know what it's for? A few in-game vehicles that have simply been painted purple.

This is the kinda crap they may help financially, but will cause people to turn their backs on devs. The other dlc doesn't add anywhere near enough to the game for the price you pay(at least not for me).

As for the game itself, it isn't bad, but if you were a fan of the previous games, even just SR2, you'll feel it's a step backwards. It improved graphic-wise, but everything else is lacking.

I am STILL hoping that they get the fourth game right, I really am.
