Pardon me for sounding like a broken record, but I read through Sega's official Facebook page that they bought all shares of THQ Canada.

I think Volition will be okay. Saints Row ought to be alright. (One of my 3D Animation professors works there and nobody else has told me of anything cataclysmic happening)

Not really, because all their franchaises have been transferred to competent developers, and more to the point, EA Games did not get any of the rights to anything, ensuring that favorite titles like Darksiders, DoW, and Saint's Row , won't be ruined by a compant who make exclusively shovel-ware and really really bad sports games.

Still pending, but most likely T2 (Take 2 Entertainment), whom I believe is responsible for Bioshock, so that should be very interesting.

They're owned by Koch Media... who own Deep Silver... so it's anybody's guess how they'll turn out now.

I just wish Red Faction had gotten in the hands of some new developer -- someone who could actually get some decent writers and game designers in there. That'd be good.

Armageddon was decent. Horrible writing/acting and rather forced boss fights, but I enjoyed beating up the aliens and breaking shit.

I was a bit anxious that Relic was bought by SEGA, but after a friend showed me what they did with Total War I'm kinda re-assured. It's better for Relic to be in SEGA's hands than in EA or Ubisoft's hands anyway.
Too bad Darksiders wasn't bought by anyone. Can't say I played the games, but they looked rather good.
But seriously now, for a company to go down from 1.1 billion revenue to a state of a complete closing? who ran the company? disabled monkeys?

The companies I would much rather see go under are as follows:

Ubisoft - They have to be one of the worst companies ever. Assassin's Shit has to go down in history as the most overhyped overrated piece of shit ever created in the history of gaming. Also their other games look like total horseshit as well.

EA - My God they are the scourge of gaming. All they care about is ripping us off as much as possible with non working servers, half assed games and unfinished games. I haven't pl;ayed a game from them in over 20 years.

Namco - Heads should roll at what they did to the Soul Calibur series. They had the greatest fighting game series ever in Soul Calibur but they totally fucked it up and I want to kill the person responsible for putting Assassin's Shit into the game. Oh they would much rather concentrate and put all their efforts into the shit Tekken than into SC.

Nintendo - My God they are dire. The Wii and Wii-U are the biggest jokes in gaming history. The Wii truly sucked and that Wii U looks like a complete turd with worse graphics than two eight year old consoles. Their games are shit. All they can make is re-released rehashed to death kiddie crap.

Capcom - All they care about is ripping us off.

Microsoft - All they care about is the fucked up shit as hell Kinect. Those fucking assholes at MS can't see Kinect for what it is a piece of horseshit of the first order. If they are not careful they are going to lose the hardcore core gamers that made them.

Platinum Games - My God their games suck Vanquish and Anarchy Reigns are just truly shit. The only reason Bayonetta worked was it was made by Hideki Kamiya and his lads from the defunct Clover Studios.

But the company I really want to see go under is SEGA! My God I hate their guts with a passion. They have had the opportunity this Gen to make some really great and new franchises like for instance Bayonetta and to re-release Shenmue and to bring out more of the fantastic Virtua Fighter but no they scraped all that for more shit as hell Sawnik. Despite the fact that it is Sonic that is costing them their existence but they are two fucktarded to see that. I want to kill the asshole responsible who said no to Bayonetta 2.

Sonic is still SEGA's mascot.

Rayman Origins was a very good game.

Who seriously care more about graphism than gameplay?!
The Wii-U seem promising with it new gameplay. Wait a little to see more games for it.

You've forgot Sony.

My god, chill out.

Though I don't disagree with you on much except for Assassin's creed. It isn't the best game in the world, but calling it bad isn't giving it any credit. It's fun to play and has a decent story.

((Except for AC3.))

But yeah I agree with you on everything else, especially about EA, Nintendo, and Microsoft.

Listen Assassin's Shit is the worst game ever created in the history of gaming.

It is complete horseshit of the first order. I played the first one for three hours and I was bored out of my senses.

AC has a good story!? LOL! ROFL! It has the WORST story and premise I have ever heard in my 34 years of gaming. Some barman thinks he was an assassin in a previous life and the human Genome has memory! Do me a fucking favour! I cringed when I heard that!

You could tell that in the first one that even the voice actors thought that story was complete shit and were only there for their paychecks.

The controls are shit! The graphics suck and the gameplay is pathetic.

How that horseshit sold copies I shall never know.

Even my dad said he couldn't stand Assassin's Creed. I was totally knocked down by that as I never knew he had heard of it. He hates AC3 for it's anti-British story.

Even my brother and nephew hate it.

Now go and cry elsewhere. AC is horseshit end of story!

Oh whatever happened to Craptivision? I remember back in the 1980's when they meant something and made some of the best games out but now they are just pathetic.

i think saints row 3 was one of the successful titles (which sold). if i remember correctly darksiders 2 fell around 250k short of the 2 million sales necessary to either break even or profit. i could have sworn homefront failed... but they sold (albeit for a "meager" 500k to crytek)
