THQ declares bankruptcy


Sledgstone

THQ declared bankruptcy last week and is in the process of being purchased by an equity firm. Looks like the THQ humble bundle was a quick cash grab for the company to raise its stock price and to help with the massive debt the company is in. Good news is that the company will continue to support its titles and have not announced any game cancellations.

Not entirely surprising. They've been having financial difficulties for the last year or so (with the cancellation of some games and the dropping of non-profitable franchises). I'm surprised they didn't go completely under though I'm somewhat happy to see they haven't (even if I rarely buy THQ titles).

I'd like to see a new Saints Row on the next gen systems. I never was a big fan of the later GTA's the driving was a hassle at times. Saints Row the Third was a blast, I haven't had so much fun driving in a game since Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for PS1. The story was pretty neat, but the main missions were kinda lacking. The Assassinations were fun when as they got more complex, and I loved the insurance fraud mini games. X'D

The insurance fraud mini games were a lot of fun. Running head first into cars and flinging your body into oncoming traffic always made me happy. XD

Imagine if they sold off their properties piecemeal like the creditors suggested and Disney bought the Saints Row franchise. Saints Row 4 could possibly have Wolverine, Pocahontas, Hulk, Yoda and Donald Duck as henchmen.

I would like to see a remade SR3 as long as it was M Rated with the following characters.... Assume all characters are around human size & anthropomorphic where applied....

 

3rd Street Saints

  1. Johnny Gat as Mickey Mouse - Many Saints Row fans raged over the death of Gat. Now imagine if Mickey Mouse fans had the same reaction to Mickey's death. Plus a Fire Breathing Mickey Mouse Mobile is Pure Win.
  2. Pierce as Hercules - Fits with the one I have for Shaundi....
  3. Shaundi as Megara - Two over sexualized Women with attitudes.
  4. Oleg & Clones as Beast - Also fits in with his relationship with Kinzie
  5. Kinzie as Belle - Two Book Worms who barely go out.
  6. Zimos as Fat Cat - Because Fat Cat sounds like a Pimp name....
  7. Josh Birk as Gaston - Both Overly successful idiots obsessed with good looks.
  8. Angel as Woody - Similarities between losing a mask & not being the favorite toy. Plus Hulk Hogan voicing a Cowboy.

 

The Syndicate

  1. Phillipe Loren as a Crow from Dumbo - I know it was a stereotype for African Americans.... But Loren is French.... I mean Belgium.... Same thing....
  2. Viola & Kiki DeWynter as The Siamese Cats from Lady & The Tramp - Originally they were suppose to be Asian but the stereotype of young Asian Women serving white men had that scrapped.... Well Loren is a Crow now....
  3. Matt Miller as Young Anakin Skywalker - Because That whole Ageist thing I guess & revolving around Sci Fi.
  4. Killbane as Buzz Lightyear - Obvious choice because on Angel. Plus Instead of removing his mask you just press the button that opens his helmet causing him to freak out. Also makes sense for the happy ending.

 

STAG - Obviously SHIELD

  1. Cyrus Temple as Nick Fury - Both Older Leaders.
  2. Kia as Maria Hill - Younger 2nd In Commands.

 

Other Cast Members

  1. Burt Reynolds as Burt Reynolds - Sorry Mufasa, Han Solo, etcetera but that never changes.
  2. Professor Genki as Stitch - Because they're insane....
  3. Monica Hughes as Wicked Stepmother from Cinderella - Both are two older women you may not want to confront.
  4. Jenny (Kwilanna) as Sleeping Beauty - I think out of all the Disney Princesses I could think of off the top of my head Sleeping Beauty didn't get that much screen time. If she had an off stage life she'd probably be the most likely to snap like this.
  5. Jimmy Torbitson & Planet Saint Clerks as Jar Jar - Because killing a former employee & robbing a store you technically own is fun & made more fun by killing Jar Jar. That & I can imagine Jar Jar sounding like Jimmy.

LMAO. That would be hilarious. Lex Luthor could be the next crime boss trying to take down the Saints. :P

 

That & getting in trouble with The Joker for wearing Purple.

 

If they're still working on it maybe Planet Saints clothes is Gotham City Impostors.

When it comes to Saints Row

 

Like

Disney - As long as it can still be M Rated then same reasons as above.

Valve - Because of Team Fortress & Portal crossovers.

Warner - Same Reasons as above.

 

Maybe

Bethesda - Hooray for maybe actual Khajiits & Argonians. Nay for Changing Saints Row's Game Engine.

Konami - Only if it uses 50 GBs making it only on PC & PS3 at the moment.

Sony - Well I still get to play new versions but I might want to switch to PC.

 

Hate

Microsoft - Not because it would be exclusive to Xbox, but they ruined Rare & Crackdown seems to be forgotten about.

Nintendo - Well they wouldn't, but still I hate The Wii U.

EA - I heard bad things.... Basically the same kind of stuff that happened to Rare.

Rockstar - Buying out the competition just to put them on the side line.... or so I fear.

Ubisoft - I don't care for U-Play.

 

Would Like but will never ever happen.

Grasshopper - Because Suda 51 could probably make a really bizarre Saints Row.

I don't see how Sega could have any of its characters in the Dawn of War games.. oh well, maybe they'll use the dawn of war engine to make a new Sonic RTS game... or maybe not.

 

Sonic!

He can really strategize!

Sonic!

He's a dying franchise!

Sonic!

He's, the most over rated thing, alive!

He's the most over rated thing alive!

 

....

 

Yeah, I hate Sonic. And I'm still expecting that sooner or later Sega will declare bankruptcy.

      Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.

      I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

      Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
      Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).
