The days of THQ are truly over. From the slow sales to it recently filing for bankruptcy, it was just a matter of time. THQ tried to sell the whole company, but their plan was denied. Now companies like Koch Media, Take-Two, Ubisoft and SEGA all have a piece of THQ.
Ubisoft officially announced More >
According to Yahoo Finance, THQ has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. They are not closing down or anything like that. They’re just getting new investors to put money upfront (if I’m reading that correctly). They also say there is no downsizing of the workforce. They do not see this as More >

The world of video games has come along way, and so has the world of professional wrestling. In the years since the video game medium began, there has been over 70 wrestling games, and 56 of them are from the WWE. Of all the wrestling game titles, I think it is safe to say that WWE 13 is by far the More >

There is one man that encompasses the very fiber of the Attitude Era, and that man is Stone Cold Steve Austin. Arguably considered the greatest wrestler of all-time, Austin was able to reach heights that not even Hulk Hogan could have ever dreamed of.

Darksiders II on its own is a decent, if heavily flawed, title, which we mentioned in our original review of the game last month. With the release of the Argul’s Tomb DLC, THQ and Vigil Games sought to expand the experience and make things more engaging, if only slightly.
The DLC works as a More >

When trying to classify a game such as Darksiders II, it can be very confusing because of just how many influences the title draws from. Do we call it an action game because of the Devil May Cry and God of War inspired combat system? Do we call it a RPG because of its use of levels, skill trees, More >
Last year CM Punk went from WWE Champion to leader of the Nexus, and once again he’s at the center of attention in the WWE. He took it upon himself to be the voice of the voiceless and demanded change. Using his infamous “pipebombs,” Punk rallied the fans to email and call Good Humor to bring back More >

Despite what you may think, creating a character like Death in Darksiders 2 isn’t as easy as you’d think, especially when you have to worry about how to clear the name of your fellow Horseman. Fortunately, THQ seems to be up to the task, as this development video shows. Get a look at how the More >
Darksiders 2 is primed to bring an action-adventure…adventure like no other. I just hope this new one comes into its own rather than borrowing a hillside of elements from other popular games and then being made fun of incessantly for it. This new behind-the-scenes video with some of the creators More >
I have to admit that I’ve been stealthily avoiding Darksiders 2 information. No, it’s not because I don’t want the game ruined for me. It’s because I really don’t dig the main character. He’s just a little too bold for my taste. You take Solid Snake, for example. He’s a badass, but he doesn’t go More >
THQ has announced that it will be focusing on core games for its new business strategy. So what does that mean? It means goodbye kids’ licensed video games, as the company will be ending its relationship with those companies, while focusing on its core games and digital initiatives for the More >
