TheDonBot: meatofmystery: God-is-a-Taco: THQ shutting down isn't sad.
EA, Activision-Blizzard, Valve, and other companies need to join them.

ok...EA maybe...Activision..eh...

But what the holy hell has Valve done wrong? Steam is the reason i've joined the glorious PC gaming master race.


B-b-but you guys haven't considered my market to sell used games on CD that pays for my instant Ramen for a week!

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Gamestop bargain bins suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

If only they had waited a few years to make the Pinkie Pie game, it would have sold like hot cakes.

I really hope the Company of Heroes and W40k games find a good home. I loved both of those a lot.

As a huge fan of the Darksiders franchise I'm very glad to hear this. The first one was fantastic, like God of War and Legend of Zelda somehow magically farked and the offspring was Darksiders. Their take on the 4 horsemen is very interesting. I also liked how the gameplay changed between 1 & 2, with War being more of a heavy bruiser, while Death was all about speed and finesse.

Was worried when I read yesterday that Vigil was the only asset not auctioned off. Cool that Platinum is stepping in to help.
