Looks Like THQ's Owned Properties Will Be Auctioned Off Anyway

I reckon we all chip in and buy the Saints Row license and hand it back to THQ dev teams with the explicit understanding that the Giant Bomb crew get to help write the script.

Who's in?

That screenshot included with this article, I don't remember that scene from Saints Row the Third.....

I hope the franchises land in good hands. I also home they are not removed from Steam!

Let's stop dancing around it and and ask some serious questions here: Who gets Destroy All Humans?

;) loved that game, never played the sequel though

My little brother played both of those games like he was dying.

Was he hoping to see a third game?

What about Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed?

Or how about Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon?

Either Warner Brothers or Square Enix (Eidos), maybe even Ubisoft.

Just don't let EA or Activision get anything, and i'm happy.

Oh god, I loved the first two Destroy All Humans, but Path of the Furon may never be spoken of.

Oh. Didn't realize it was horrible, I've never played it, I just knew they did end up making a third game. I guess that's why they stopped making them, huh?

Square Enix isn't necessarily in the position themselves to buy more properties at this point since they aren't in great shape either but if anything though they might be in the position of possibly buying Relic since they have published RTS games.

NOOOOOOO!! ACTIVISION IS GOING TO RUIN SAINT'S ROW IF THEY PICK IT UP

What will happen to Darksiders?!!!!!!

#261 Posted by captainanderson (258 posts) -

Auctioning off these IPs individually is never a good sign. I hope Square Enix or Take Two pick up some of the more prestigious ones, since they've both done good work for the most part over the last few years.

I hope whole studios are purchased with the properties. A non-Volition Saints Row would be terrible.

Agreed. Make it a package deal. The SR3 PC port was well done, so it would be nice to feel a little more confident for the next one (to avoid that whole SR2 thing....).

EA can have the properties, just leave the developers. EA has a shitty reputation when it comes to buying studios by using them up and tossing them aside.

Yeeep! They threw out all of the humor and made it all combat, but not even the best combat compared to DAH2. Just my opinion, but damn was that a bummer.

I really can't see this going all that well, I have a strong feeling EA will try and snap up as much as they can due to their veritable lack of success and consumer satisfaction recently. Would not be even slightly surprised if they jumped straight in for Saints Row.
