    Damn THQ, you really underestimated your worth. "Sure, gamers might look down on tie-ins to kids shows" Hey, i loved Spongebob Battle for bikini bottom, even now, it was a good game, dont know about the movie since i didnt play it but otherwise that game did it nicely. Otherwise your right on the point about them sticking too close to them.

    "Destroy All Humans, Darksiders, de Blob, and THQ itself belongs to no one." That sentence alone saddened me more than I thought it could. I... I need a moment to think.

    The fact that nobody was interested in any of those is criminal.

    this makes me sad but also makes me wanna find a N64 and fire up some Wrestlemania 2000

    I'll never forgive Armageddon. And what's going to happen to war hammer 40k? Is there even a tiny possibity of more rts entries like soul storm?

    Am I the only one that thinks image 12 is something out of Bungie's Destiny? If not then where is it from?

    Howdy. That's actually a screenshot from Company of Heroes 2. I wanted to find something THQ-related that conveyed the tough times ahead (both in the company's history and in the article itself), so I picked that pic of a "cold, empty winter." Did I put too much thought into that? Probably, but whatever. Thank you (and everyone else) for reading though.

    so what's gonna happen to the WWE games, I wonder... dumb as they were, I still found them fun.

    As an MMA fan, I can't begin to explain the feeling of the first UFC Undisputed game. After so many crappy MMA games, someone finally got it right. But even then, them trying to annualize the franchise hurt it significantly. I bought 2009 day 1, 2010 a few months after it launched, and waited until 3 was used and got it for $20. The quality was still high, but that wasn't a game I needed every year. No Mercy is still one of my favorite games of all time, regardless of system. The controls are perfect, CAP is deep, and the branching storylines are fantastic. I think I'm going to play that tonight in THQ's honor.

    I worked in game retail when the uDraw came out. We had stacks of them piled up in the stock room, and the whole time I worked there (about 3 months) we sold 1. That's it. The thing that really kills me about all this is that nobody picked up the Darksiders license. It's a crying shame.

    it really is a shame, i found Darksiders very entertaining. at least Metro found a new home...
  • Redeater - February 6, 2013 12:23 p.m.

    I hope there is a special place in hell for the executives who greenlit the Udraw and Homefront marketing decisions. It's hard to believe that any publisher with this many great licenses crashed and burned.
  • TheDudeFromNowhere - February 6, 2013 12:21 p.m.

    So, I guess they plummeted because they overestimated their worth. AND i have NEVER heard of the U-draw.
  • Tyrande - February 7, 2013 12:48 p.m.

    yeah same here. as i continued to read the article and got to the part of "THQ attempted to bring uDraw over to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a year later" i just went WHY!?
