Re: THQ files for bankruptcy
probably better that fs3 doesn't get made. not a huge market for it, and plus the it would be hard to meet the niche market expectations for such an endavor

Re: THQ files for bankruptcy
Well the Koch Brothers now own Volition... yowch.

On the other hand Crytek buying Homefront seems to continue their trend of BEST KOREA.

If they are merging Homefront and Crysis as IPs (the only thing that would make sense) alien tech would at least make the plot of a game I never played and never intend to play slightly less pants-on-head retarded.

Crytek has been working on Homefront 2 since before the THQ collapse. God knows why! It won't be merging with Crysis, it'll just be...more Homefront, I guess.

My last name is Koch.  Feels weird to have everyone talking about Koch Media.  I didn't even know there was such a company until yesterday.

Heh, same for me. Actually, I felt the same way when I heard what "Zenimax" was; it sounded like a VHS or CD-R manufacturer or something...

Re: THQ files for bankruptcy
Important thing is that Volition didn't get dissolved like Vigil. I'm also glad to see Metro bought up by the same company.

It's a shame that vigil to dissolved i quite liked the darksiders series, but there is small hope it's seems like Platinum games would be interested on vigil

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems
