I don't care about their DRM. I never even said anything about it?

I'd buy them for a dollar!!!

I know a few people that may feel like investing into gaming. Namely my cousin who is a lawyer up here in NY. Maybe I'll have a chat with him....

OMG! I gotta say SEGA taking the rights of Company of Heroes is EXCELLENT NEWS! They've done really well with the management of hallmark pc strategy series "Total War". With this i can sleep knowing it will be with management that know what they are doing, take their time, and wont try to milk the franchise and ship it to consoles then give a crap console ports to pc.

As i am now, im very satisfied with the new owner, sucks that THQ is gone but hey at least Ubisuck didnt get it lol thumb.gif

Yeah, same. I'm very excited that Relic and the COH IP went to a studio that appears to respect strategy games like the way they have with Creative Assembly and the Total War franchise. I was most worried for Relic since I think they're a brilliant studio and all that talent deserves to go to a half decent publisher.

Considering Ubisoft of late has pulled back on their awful DRM and has pretty much the exact same DRM model as Steam with their Uplay is fine by me. Only problem is I'm not terribly fond of running both Steam and Uplay as it just seems redundant. Although, I tend to buy hard copies rather than digital unless the price is just too good to pass up on Steam.

Some assets, including our publishing businesses and Vigil, along with some other intellectual properties are not included in the sale agreements. They will remain part of the Chapter 11 case. We will make every effort to find appropriate buyers, if possible.

So apparently all the other IPs, Red Faction, Homeworld, etc as well as Vigil (less employees) and Darksiders are still up for grabs.

Don't know who is Koch Media but I hope they don't ruin Saints Row.

Glad Activision didn't acquire any of THQ's assets which is good. Don't care for EA either.

Correct me if I am wrong; but didn't THQ kill off Red Faction altogether after Red Faction: Armageddon did really poorly?

They still own the IP. They just haven't done anything with it.

Im happy that Relic is with SEGA, SEGA has done a good job with the CA the total war guys and im sure they will do a good job with Relic, much better than THQ with its failed mgmt has done with them.

I am sad that Vigil the company that made Darksiders is gone, the series is a great hack and slash/puzzle/platforming game which also came to PC, one of the few games of its type to do so. It was awesome, Darksiders 2 was one of my fav games of 2012, it was unfair for THQ expecting them to sell tons of copies given the limited advertising the game got.
