I guess Brian Farrell's days flying in corporate jets on THQ's dime are almost over. Someone took a picture of him in the bankruptcy hearings. He's relaxed, just another day in the office.


Seriously, Fuck this guy.
RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Crytek has decided to open a new studio in the United States. Which came along with good news for some ex-vigil employees. The studio is currently employing 35 employees all of them from vigil.

:whee:Whatever they will be working on will most likely be for next-gen, so I can't wait to see what they cook up.

New in-depth article about the collapse of THQ:
http://www.mcvuk.com...l-story/0110180

A choice quote from Jason Rubin:

"I think it is incorrect to attribute THQ's predicament with overall changes in the industry,

To be sure, all triple-A publishers have been under pressure, but THQ had every chance to survive had it not made massive mistakes.

Unfortunately, the mistakes that were made long before I joined, like the incredible losses attached to uDraw, massive wasted capital in the unpublished MMO that was cancelled, sticking with children's and casual titles far after mobile and tablets had killed the business, bad, late, or otherwise inferior titles like Homefront, and a generally haphazard and inefficient approach to deal making, left the company with too much negative hanging on its books."

They'd be better off reading my posts from the start of this thread to the end. I know a hell of a lot more about THQ's collapse than the guy that wrote that article. You can't listen to Rubin.

IMO Jason Rubin and Brian Farrell should go to jail. For what they did to the company and trying to give Clearlake a sweetheart deal.


Bondholder objection. I bolded and underlined some interesting stuff. It's important to keep in mind this a legal document filed in court. For them to file this document and state these kinds of things says a lot about THQ management. If you don't want to read it all, red the parts I have in red. It's pretty damning that these guys were willing to make those claims.

Hey, we need to put out a game or we'll run out of money. I have a good idea, lets delay all our games!

One other thing. The biggest individual shareholder of THQ stock went in court and tried to stop the sale of Volition as that alone would save the company. The judge denied his motion to stay the sale.

Management tried to have all the records related to the sale sealed. They didnt want emails and such going public. The shareholder objected to that as well and the judge refused to seal all THQ records.

Oh and he states that he was talking to the SEC, Justice Dept, and NY AG. Who knows if anything will come of it but it would be nice to have it looked into and decided by people that know the law if crimes were committed.

Edit: He (the shareholder) made these statements in court IN FRONT OF THQ MANAGEMENT.

Management has finally been removed. Too bad it didnt happen soon enough to save the company.

Second auction is supposed to be in May. looks like Crytek plans on buying the Darksiders IP. Maybe we'll see some conclusion to the series after all.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

Eh, this worries me. After Crysis 2 and 3, Crytek seemed to become another one of EA's bitches. I could only imagine how Darksiders gets treated. Especially when Crytek clams Darksiders 3 "doesn't fit out strategy".

Its a possibility to be honest. Based upon the novel that came out Strife, one of the Horseman, is armed with duel pistols.
