Apparently you don't realize how little 15k shares costs.  
Last I checked, Interplay stock was sub-$0.20. I just checked again now and IPLY is worth $0.063 (x 15,000). That's US$945. While perhaps little more than a drop in the bucket, you'd have been better off selling short when there were no press releases about a Fallout MMO.

It could just as easily be a new IP. A Summoner revival is more likely than FreeSpace 3, though, yeah.

"In the December 2009 issue of Game Informer, THQ's Danny Bilson stated that the game would debut at E3 2010 and dubbed it as "mind-blowing"."

Of course it is, since it has to be. He needs to state that, since he wants to sell it  :)
I still think its Summoner 3 or a Summoner MMO. Both not good.

Yea but if you're thinking "mind blowing new project" that's probably "Secret Project X"

Lot less then I would have tossed away on scratch off tickets at the bar.  I'm in for the long gamble.  Hope it goes to $6 one of these days............

You'd be buying THQ stock, which I'd actually call a bit risky.

I wrote a "playful" email to them via contact us on their web page and here is their response. :D

:eek2: Is that a canned message?

Not surprising, seeing as a lot of the people that play their more popular games are more interested in blowing people's faces off and doing drugs then sending emails to the developer.

Yeah, I've seen that sentence at the bottom appear on someone else's response from them.  At least they cared enough to add the sentiment. :p

I'd bet its either Saints Row 3 or another Red Faction game. If its another Freespace game (which it isn't) I'll eat my computer.
