If there is ever a point where THQ falls apart I just hope that Relic makes it out in one piece.

#52 Posted by misfeasor (27 posts) -

That Dent guy is now trying to claim he never definitively said this, but he clearly claimed without reservation that THQ had cancelled all of their 2014. The denial after the fact may be worse than the act itself.

This Twitter argument may well be the funniest thing I've seen all week.

Somewhat related, here in the UK it has been impossible to find a copy of Saints Row: The Third for about three weeks now. I spoke with one employee of my local Game, who said it's the same with all THQ games at the moment: they're just not printing enough, possibly owing to the cost.

Amazon.co.uk has all three versions in stock:

Wait. Isn't there ALREADY a Warhammer MMO out? I swear I bought it... =(

The one mentioned here is Warhammer 40k, not just Warhammer.

Twitters power is scary sometimes.

You mean that if we really put our minds to it, we can sink the company?

#58 Posted by Lurkero (425 posts) -

Wow, I didn't like Marcus from Gametrailers before, but now I dislike him even more. "Kevin is my friend so obviously he would be more correct than someone representing the company you are talking about" is not a legitimate defense.

Rumors say one thing, THQ says another. Until proven otherwise by hard evidence, rumors no longer mean anything. End of story. Why would THQ even start canceling games for 2014? Most of them probly haven't even started production, even if the license if already there.

reading through his tweets, his self delusion is staggering

The best part is the fact that Marcus is the most abrasive, snarky guy on GameTrailers that, granted as poor as that community is, has not been that popular among the GT users. He would often just say "yah that game is balls whatever" if he didn't like something and often comment how he doesn't care that other people are bothered by his shitty attitude - and he's telling Alex he should have been more professional and less snarky.

#61 Posted by Lurkero (425 posts) -

@Humanity: Good point, I can't stand Marcus so I didn't even think that far into the issue. Extreme snark is exactly the type of personality he emits. Marcus chastises Alex over having a similar "attitude" when his friend is the one on the receiving end, however. He's a pure jerk.

I can't even bother to listen to Gametrailers podcasts anymore because I hate hearing Marcus and Shane (the top editor at GT) talk.

#62 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2699 posts) -

I love that somehow this news article served as a means to tell people a Warhammer 40k MMO is being made.

We've only known that forever.

#63 Posted by Krakn3Dfx (2502 posts) -

This is all because Alex gave Saint's Row the Third a 4/5. Now we're all gonna die.

F'n Alex. Once again, you've killed us.

What movie is that thumbnail from? I can tell that the guy on the left is bill murray, but that's all.

On topic, holy balls! THQ is one of the few publishers I actually really like.

Alex said it in the article: Candyman.

The guys head is a photoshopped Brian Farrell - CEO of THQ

EDIT: Derp, I didn't read your post properly

#65 Posted by Sammo21 (3574 posts) -

"it's true what you heard...THQ has no dick."

Seriously though, I hope this isn't true. THQ actually does put out good stuff and I also don't want Relic and the 40K license picked up by someone like Activision. I wouldn't care if the 40K mmo gets scrapped as that thing sounds terrible, at least from a 40K fan perspective.

#66 Posted by Humanity (10141 posts) -

@Lurkero: I got no issues with Shane, but Marcus does rub me the wrong way. When I used to go to GT a lot I thought Invisible Walls was a decent show and liked the chit chat but when Marcus came along he was the odd man out on everything which got annoying after a while.

#67 Posted by Wacomole (837 posts) -

Maybe this was all a ploy by someone to get some ultra-cheap THQ shares and then rake it in when the price rockets back up.

#68 Posted by GreggD (4515 posts) -

Well, there goes my hope of a good WWE game/new Red Faction.

I had to click on this link since you had a GHOSTBUSTERS screen grab on the front page. :)

I only care about Saints Row. I'm not sure what I'd do if that series got gobbled up and spat out by EA :'(

#73 Posted by spartan1017 (222 posts) -

Good, rather like what I see coming down the road from THQ.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: I'm sorry, but that image is totally lost on me.

Also, I appreciate you doing work at 1AM, Alex. 'Specially when Candyman is involved.

Ever heard of the term 'yandere'?

@AlexanderSheen said:

Thank you Alex for being awesome.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Why did you do that? I don't want to see or hear anything about Mirai Nikki, that's poison for me.

But the yandere is calling out to you... OBEY!!!!!!

@KaneRobot: Fools... You're only supposed to have one suspender attached. *shaking head*

I rushed out and did just that earlier today, before I had heard the rumors had been squashed.

Good to hear they'll stick around, they do have quite a few great franchises.

#79 Posted by Flappy (2360 posts) -

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Oh yes...I knew that chick looked familiar! (I believe I stumbled across her during one of my many tvtropes visits in the past). Thanks for the clarification.

#80 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

I am going to be seriously put out if Dark Millennium gets canceled. I need to have an MMO to look forward to so that it can fail to meet my expectations, goddamnit!

#81 Posted by ArcLyte (893 posts) -

glad to hear the situation is not nearly as fucked as the internet hysteria made it out to be.

#82 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

oh thank god.

#83 Posted by PulledaBrad (612 posts) -

Im hoping that this is some Gorddon Geko type shit, releasing possible false news to bottom out the stock only to be bought up in large quantities but some shady ass shell company, only to have the stock rebound some and make some serious dough.

.... I should call a stock broker.

#84 Posted by ninjalegend (462 posts) -

I had hoped Saints Row 3 did well for them, as Volition should be paid for that bit of awesome. So the publisher of one of Giantbomb's top 3 games of the year (and my own), who also brought solid titles like WW All Stars and Warhammer, is in financial trouble. While Mario and Sonic at the Olympics sells like gangbusters. It's times like these where I wonder "Why was I happy gaming went mass market?".

#85 Posted by shakra (252 posts) -

At $.66 a share how could you not buy thq stock?

#86 Posted by Ketchupp (668 posts) -

I would devour a 40k MMO.

#87 Posted by vinsanityv22 (1064 posts) -

This rumor was fucking stupid and came out of nowhere. THQ has never had a more promising stable of titles than recently - Darksiders, Saint's Row, UFC/WWE (especially All Stars), Warhammer, Homefront, etc. I have no idea where this rumor came from, but it was stupid and I'm glad THQ is putting an end to it.

I haven't seen SNL in years but holy fucking shit is it in the complete cat shit dept.

You're a moron. If you haven't seen it, than don't form an opinion on it.

#88 Posted by JuggaloAcidman (311 posts) -

I'm glad it's just a rumor... THQ has been kicking the jams lately!

The internet? Blowing things grossly out of proportion and taking rumor and innuendo at face value? Get the fuck out! Next thing you know, you'll be telling me the world is round. Lies, I tell you, ALL LIES!

I don't see why you need to insult Dent.

I see good reasons for it; starting a false rumour that affects a productive company.. not cool.

#93 Posted by Crissaegram (6 posts) -

THQ better keep going, if for no other reason than we need more better Warhammer 40k stuff.

Of course THQ would say none of it's true so you can't really trust their word for it. And Kevin was just tweeting a rumour he had heard. Are people not allowed to do that anymore?

You can do it, however I do think it's unethical and irresponsible.

I'd love to be able to Warhammer Online!

#97 Posted by JaguarCRO (59 posts) -

I would love to see another open-world destructable Environment game like Red Faction: Guerilla. Unfortunately I don't see it happening. Still planning to get Saint's Row: The Third, but haven't yet.

*Oh, Emperor, if you are out there please see through a great and almighty warhammer 40k MMO*

Hehe, foolish man god.
