Whip it good
In case you missed the news earlier today, an Amazon listing leaked the existence of Darksiders III, complete with screenshots and gameplay details. Now, admittedly a little late to the party, the game's official reveal trailer has gone up on YouTube. It's not exactly original or particularly exciting, but hey, at least we know the...
Nice one Amazon, you've just completely leaked Darksiders III ahead of its official announcement - which we assume was planned for some point this week. The online retailer had the action role-playing sequel listed in all of its glory, complete with all the juicy details and even screenshots, as nabbed by Gematsu. So, the big story here...
Gat a load of this
Remember that crumby, cancelled Saints Row game for the PSP? Well, you can play it now. Volition has released the unfinished .iso file online, allowing you to test out the unreleased title for free. This is a pretty unprecedented move, so kudos to the developer for getting the game out into the public domain. We've no idea how...
Volition unearths forgotten project
There are already a handful of canned Saints Row projects that have leaked over the years, but Saints Row Undercover – a PlayStation Portable spin-off of Saints Row 2 – was forgotten by practically everyone. The project was officially cancelled all the way back in 2009, and has been left sitting in a Volition...
Freak on a leash
Saints Row is no stranger to cancelled games, as regular readers may recall the PlayStation Move-based brawler that was revealed recently. However, this footage from Saints Row: Money Shot is a first for us, as it shows a free-to-play arcade game that was once in production for the PlayStation 3 – an
Enter the dominatrix
In many ways, the PlayStation Move seems like a perfect controller for the Saints Row series – after all, the ill-fated motion wand already resembles a great big vibrating... Seriously, though, Unseen64.net has unearthed a bunch of information on Saints Row: The Cooler,
Death’s gigantic hammer has fallen on deceased publisher THQ’s remaining assets, deeming Nordic Games the new owner of Darksiders, Red Faction, and various other properties. The publisher paid a whopping $4.9 million for the assortment pack of IP, also grabbing MX vs. ATV, Destroy All Humans, and Marvel Super Hero Squad in the...
Blood, sweat, and tiny pants
While the majority of THQ’s franchises found new homes yesterday, there’s still been no official word on the future of the WWE license. Early rumours suggested that EA had picked up the lucrative contract, but that’s been countered by an IGN report which claims that Take Two made a last minute bid for the series...
Thanks for the memories
The auction for THQ’s assets has concluded, with the publisher closing up shop as a result. After a gruelling 22 hour auction process, intermediaries decided that individual bids would net a greater cash return for the debt riddled company, resulting in the demise of the once prolific publisher. The new owners of many of...
Grand theft auto
As we type, various companies and venture capitalists are picking at the bones of fallen publisher THQ. The organisation’s assets are being auctioned off individually, meaning it’s entirely possible that the likes of Homefront, Red Faction, and
THQ may be on the cusp of commercial collapse, but that’s not stopping the publisher from giving away complimentary copies of the original Darksiders to North American PlayStation Plus subscribers. Assuming you’re a member, you’ll be able to grab the title for free from later today. Other goodies include a 50 per cent...
Open your cheque book
Ever since creditors complained about THQ's quick sale to equity firm Clearlake Capital, things have gone from bad to worse for the embattled publisher. What initially seemed like a crafty way of protecting the company as on ongoing concern has quickly transformed into a bidding war for the firm’s most valuable assets – and...
Who fancies some serious legal mumbo jumbo before bed? THQ’s attempt at a quick sale to equity firm Clearlake Capital has been blocked following complaints from irked creditors. Earlier this week, the miffed parties noted that the proposed takeover had been purposely designed to minimise disruption, rather than maximise debt...
There’s just enough time for one more rumour before the games industry closes down for Christmas. According to sources close to MCV, Ubisoft is plotting a bid for THQ’s assets. If successful, the French company would control all of the struggling publisher’s studios and intellectual property, including franchises such as...
The writing’s been on the wall for a while, but publisher THQ has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today. The company’s currently in the process of selling all of its assets to Clearlake Capital Group, a private equity firm. Once complete, Clearlake will control “THQ's operating business, including THQ's four owned studios and games in...
Things sure aren't looking particularly rosy for troubled publisher THQ. Despite cutting its operating losses to $19 million compared to last year's terrifying $97 million, the company still can't catch a break. During a financial briefing earlier this evening, the organisation reported net sales of $107 million – before delaying its entire...
Death will reign once again this Hallowe’en, when THQ deploys Darksiders 2’s second big chunk of DLC. The cryptically titled Abyssal Forge will be available on PlayStation 3 from 30th October in North America. Those of you living overseas will have an extra day to prepare for the apocalyptic arrival, when the content appears on...
Light the way
Developer 4A Games has decided to scrap Metro: Last Light’s multiplayer component, opting to concentrate its resources on creating an exceptional single-player campaign instead. The competitive mode was revealed shortly after the game’s initial announcement – a move that the studio feels was “probably a mistake”. "Throughout...
If you still haven’t snapped up THQ’s nonsense sandbox sequel Saints Row: The Third, then the publisher hopes to make things really simple for you this November. It’s announced a complete edition of the year-old adventure, containing the original game alongside a wealth of expansion packs. As part of the collection you’ll...
Not exactly crazy
In arguably the most unsurprising turn of events, THQ has ceased development on Guillermo Del Toro's inSANE and returned the rights to the Mexican director. The information was announced during THQ’s quarterly financial call overnight, in which the troubled publisher actually exceeded expectations. It recorded a net income of...
At Death's door
THQ might not have much money left in the bank, but it’s still got enough to plop a dramatisation of the apocalypse in between Coronation Street. This new Darksiders II television spot shows protagonist Death riding into oncoming traffic, while people run for their lives. We don’t know what’s wrong with them, really – the...
'Til death do us part
With Death’s arrival imminent on PlayStation 3, THQ has released a brand new in-engine trailer depicting what the apocalypse will look like when Darksiders II rides into retail next month. The melodramatic short shows off plenty of gameplay footage, but if you’re still not sold on the sought after sequel, check out our...
Sounds like Death itself, supposedly
Sumthing Else Music Works and THQ have announced that the upcoming Darksiders II will be receiving its very own two-disc soundtrack for you to listen while you're not riding into battle and restoring mankind. The soundtrack will feature scores by Assassin's Creed and Hitman composer, Jesper Kyd, whose...
Where the heart is
THQ has kindly signed the rights to Devil’s Third back to its creator Valhalla Game Studios. Chatting with Eurogamer.net, the troubled publisher confirmed the news: “All of the game's IP rights have been returned to [founder Tomonobu] Itagaki and the Valhalla team.” The publisher revealed last month that it would not...
Exit the dominatrix
THQ has announced that its standalone expansion Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix is no more. The disc-based add-on had been planned for a September release, but will now be folded into the “The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise”. That's due out next year. New president Jason Rubin explained the...
See that headline in big, black writing at the top of your screen: we’re not making it up. We almost spilled hot tea all over our desk when we read the press release from THQ, but the publisher seems pretty serious about it. As far as we know, it’s not April Fools’ Day today. Nope, professional boxer and occasional ear-biter Mike Tyson...
Live action video game trailers almost always take themselves too seriously, and this new Darksiders II video is no different. In it, a bearded gentleman preaches about the arrival of death, shortly before the unwanted hoodlum predictably gatecrashes the sermon. Watch the video below for over-the-top acting and bad computer graphics...
As part of Xbox’s E3 press conference this evening, Microsoft ushered out South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone who – after taking a well timed dig at the rest of the press conference – announced that its upcoming collaboration with THQ, South Park: The Stick of Truth, is set to release on multiple platforms on 5th March,...
THQ has confirmed that Danny Bilson, the vice president of core games, has departed the troubled publisher. He will be replaced by Naughty Dog co-founder Jason Rubin in a slightly different role, which will see him oversee development, marketing and publishing. Bilson will be joined by senior vice president of core games Dave Davis out...
Live the revolution
The action depicted in this leaked WWE '13 trailer was clearly too intense to stay secret for long, hence its premature arrival on YouTube. The reveal for THQ’s next wrestling title is as raucous and acrobatic as you’d expect, featuring footage of favourites such as The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mankind, among...
Enjoying the sunshine and smiles that the warm weather brings? That’s no good: the world is in financial meltdown and the end is nigh – you should be feeling depressed, and perhaps even a little bit mad. Don’t worry, though, we have the perfect antidote for your ill-placed optimism. Embedded below is a live action trailer for...
Not lost the plot
Famed director Guillermo Del Toro's first foray into video games, inSANE, has not been cancelled, troubled publisher THQ has confirmed. While it has dropped Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil’s Third, it has confirmed continued development on the mysterious PS3 survival horror title. Very little is known about inSANE other than its...
A juicy little tidbit for those of you that feel the PlayStation 3 needs more first-person shooters: THQ is reloading its PS2 classic Red Faction II for release on the PlayStation Store this week. The Volition favourite originally launched on Sony’s system in 2002, and has garnered cult status in the years since. There’s no word on...
E3 is an expensive endeavour, especially if you’re beleaguered publisher THQ. While the company’s fortunes appear to have improved over the past couple of weeks, it has decided against splashing out on a costly booth at this year’s show. The decision seems like a sound one: the publisher will still be present at the show,...
If you thought Saints Row: The Third’s “Enter the Dominatrix” April Fools’ gag was nothing but a silly joke, well, the punch line’s on you, friend. In a brilliant press release sent out to the media this afternoon, publisher THQ has officially confirmed the standalone expansion for release at retail this Fall. It’ll cost you...
Die another day
THQ’s delayed the release of Darksiders II until August. The game was originally scheduled to release on PS3 in late June, but the publisher has decided to hold the sequel back in order to ensure it meets the “high quality bar the team is targeting”. Developer Vigil Games added in an FAQ that the delay has nothing to do with...
Laying it bare
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick doesn’t foresee much longevity for troubled publisher THQ – the gaffer told an audience at the MIT Business in Gaming Conference that he believes the firm will be fully shuttered in six months time. Zelnick expanded that he believes the publisher’s biggest mistake was working with licensed...
It’s probably telling that Saints Row: The Third’s latest DLC pack – which sees former series protagonist Johnny Gat brought back to life as a thirty-foot clone – seems a bit tame. Don’t get us wrong, we like the idea of gaining superpowers from drinking the Saints’ own brand of energy drink (Saints Flow for those curious),...
Homefront divided opinion upon its release in early 2011. Despite not receiving particularly positive reviews, the THQ published first-person shooter enjoyed a fairly favourable commercial reception, thanks in part to a strong promotional push. The sequel to Homefront is currently in development at former TimeSplitters studio...
At death's door
Those of you that register early interest in the upcoming Darksiders II will get a little extra contrent for your enthusiasm. Publisher THQ’s announced that it’s upgrading all pre-orders of the adventure title to the limited edition version at no extra charge. The limited edition will ship with a code to download the game’s...
Edward you believe it?
When we were at high-school, the kid with ginger hair and pale skin was always the one that got laughed at. But since the emergence of the Twilight series – and more importantly, Edward Cullen – that same stereotype’s turned into the ultimate lady magnet. Nah, we don’t get it either, but apparently vampires are the new...
THQ’s announced that an update of the legitimately brilliant arcade wrestling title, WWF WrestleFest, is headed to the PlayStation Network later this year. Renamed WWE WrestleFest, the update promises upgraded visuals, a contemporary fighter roster, multiplayer, downloadable content and Road to WrestleMania progression play...
Keeping it classy
If you can’t get enough of Saints Row: The Third’s general wackiness and potty humour, then THQ’s got a treat for you; the open-world title’s latest DLC pack, Gangstas in Space, is set to take off next week on the PlayStation Store for $6.99. The content revolves around the Boss and new character Jenny Jaros who attempt to...
Slow dance in the sun
Normally we wouldn’t be up for inviting the Grim Reaper into our home, but in the case of Darksiders II we might be tempted to make an exception. According to the game’s official Twitter account, we’ll get to go hands-on with the dark Zelda inspired sequel this coming 26th June in North America and 29th June in Europe...
Lights out for now
If you were looking forward to 4A Games and THQ’s survival shooter, Metro: Last Light, then you might want to clench your fists through the rest of this article. THQ’s third-quarter financial earnings report revealed that the publisher has pushed back the claustrophobic shooter until Q1 2013 (we know it’s confusing, but...
The bad news doesn't stop for troubled publisher THQ
Following a slew of rumours yesterday, and warnings that the company might be delisted from the NASDAQ stock exchange, the company has announced that it has cut a whopping 240 jobs. According to a regulatory filing, the redundancies will go into effect before September, with the vast majority to...
Presumably in response to ongoing rumours about its fate, THQ has released a statement reiterating its decision to exit the "kids' licensed game market" and focus on its upcoming throng of core game franchises
THQ will be a more streamlined organization focused only on our strongest franchises [in the future], said THQ's head gaffer, Brian Farrell. The success of Saints Row: The Third is an..
We don't really understand the appeal of the Darksiders series
Make no mistake, the original was a fine game, but we're not really sure it's deserving of the praise that it gets. We think back to the game's art direction and want to cry. Ugliest game of the generation so far? We think so. It's probably fair to say, then, that we're not the biggest fans of the Vigil Games developed series. But given..
Yesterday, a slew of Tweets by IGDA Mobile SIG chair Kevin Dent alleged that THQ was in grave financial trouble, and that it was cancelling the entirety of its 2014 game line-up while holding out hope for a potential buyer
The rumours were not true. VG247 reached out to THQ's Australian branch — presumably the only one awake at the time — who outright denied the speculation. "THQ has not..
Just when you thought Saints Row: The Third couldn't get any weirder, publisher THQ has announced that CheapAssGamer
com</a> proprietor, CheapyD, is set to join the cast of the bananas open-world game. As explained by the man himself, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to grab the "character" for free from the PlayStation Store next week. Bafflingly, CheapyD recorded "hundreds..
It's time to toss your common sense aside, as THQ has announced the first piece major DLC for Saints Row: The Third is coming to the PlayStation Network next week
And, as expected, it's delightfully mad. Entitled "Genkibowl VII", the DLC pack will bring with it a host of zany sporting events such as Sad Panda Skyblazing, Angry Tiger's Apocalypse Genki, Sexy Kitten Yarngasm, and Super..
We're not sure anyone was clamouring for a repackaged version of Homefront, but that's exactly what THQ's release schedule has revealed
Due out before March 31st, the Homefront: Ultimate Edition will likely bundle the original game alongside its two DLC packs, "Fire Sale" and "The Rock". THQ has yet to make an official statement regarding the title, but expect a press release..
After a minor mix-up earlier in the month, THQ has revealed that it is to publish CryEngine 3 powered arena shooter Nexuiz on the PlayStation Network "early" next year
No price was announced. Nexuiz began life as an open source PC/Mac shooter, before being licensed to developer IllFonic last year. You can see how the commercial version stacks up in...
Following less than stellar sales for uDraw on PlayStation 3 (did you know it had even released?), THQ has announced that it has laid off 30 employees from its Play branch
THQ justified the layoffs by reiterating the "weaker than expected" sales performance of the drawing application, which launched on PS3 last month. Due to weaker than expected sales of the uDraw Game Tablet, we are..
Turns out someone at South Park Studios was a big fan of Alpha Protocol
Obsidian Entertainment's gaffer Feargus Urquhart has revealed that the developer was coveted by the licensor itself — as opposed to a big publisher — in order to get the upcoming South Park: The Game RPG tie-in off the ground. When the South Park project came up, it was kind of a big surprise, Urquhart told Game..
'Tis the season to announce games apparently
As if Sony's upcoming The Last Of Us and Epic Games' brand new "experience" wasn't enough, THQ's confirmed its got a "very exciting" announcement in the pipeline. THQ core games boss Danny Bilson told AusGamers: We actually have a game we havent announced yet and I cant announce tonight but we will be around December ..
Game Informer's cover reveal wasn't the megaton many hoped for, but it was still a big surprise
We don't think anybody expected Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment to be working on South Park: The Game. But it is, and the first details of which have emerged. The RPG promises to depict the struggles associated with being a new kid on the block. Characters will be completely..
Comprehensive stat-tracking is one of the best features of open-world games, and THQ seems to understand that
Showing a shrewd awareness of its audience, the publisher has levelled up Saints Row: The Third's official website — adding support for interactive stat-tracking and maps. The website also includes leaderboards for many of the game's categories, so you can see how you rate against other..
When editors of Game Informer magazine teased that its next issue would boast one of the most surprising covers in the publication's history, the Internet went mad
Was the heavily rumoured Sony Smash Bros about to get an unveiling? What about the next Sony platform? As is so common in the video game industry, most gamers let unrealistic expectations get the better of them. But the editors of Game..
Those of you in Europe that picked up a copy of Saints Row: The Third today are in luck
THQ has announced that, just like in North America, it will be offering anyone that registers a PS3 version of the bonkers open-world game a free digital copy of Saints Row 2. As in the USA, all you need to do is register The Third's online pass within 90 days to claim your copy.
Remember inSane? Errr
It was the THQ game announced at last year's VGAs. Oh come on — the one with director Guillermo del Toro heavily involved. Yes, that one. It's looking "really, really nasty" apparently. But with the title not due out until 2013 (!), del Toro has talked up the complexities of game development in an interview with Wired. "We're really trying a lot of stuff that..
While this definitely feels like damage control for a forgotten promise -- and an opportunity to scoop back some positive press -- we suppose we have to credit THQ and Sony for coming good
Regular readers will recall our heated article regarding the removal of exclusive content from the PS3 version of Saints Row: The Third — despite an additional,...
Tigers, auto-tuned pimps, barrel-sized fists -- it can only be Saints Row: The Third
In order to celebrate the release of Volition's ridiculous open-world action game, THQ has released the game's launch trailer. It's more narrative heavy than the straight-up silliness of previous trailers, but there's enough craziness in there to get your trousers dancing. Catch it after the break.
Back at E3 Sony announced a bunch of PlayStation 3 exclusive extras for a variety of multiplatform games
Many of those promises have been broken. Only a couple of weeks ago EA forgot to inform customers that Battlefield 3 wouldn't actually include a downloadable version of Battlefield 1943 — and now THQ's followed suit. Despite confirming "an exclusive mode on the PlayStation 3 utilizing..
uDraw proved a massive hit when it launched on the Nintendo Wii last year
And now it's preparing to launch on PlayStation 3. The slick black tablet peripheral allows you to interact with a variety of different games, applications and more. Perhaps most appealing to us is the drawing tutorial mode, which teaches you everything from simple shading through to in-depth landscape painting. Check out the..
The thing with DLC -- from a publisher's stance anyway -- is that while the first couple of packs traditionally sell really well, there's a huge drop-off after a short while
So nowadays publishers want to sell you all of a game's DLC in advance. Call Of Duty's doing it with Elite, Uncharted's doing it with the Fortune Hunters' Club, and now Saints...
Publisher THQ has confirmed that Japan will receive a slightly watered down version of its zany crime sim, Saints Row: The Third
The publisher claimed that the game's craziness is a little too much for Japanese tastes. This being the country that can propel an AKB48 dating game to the top of the software charts. One of the things that will be censored in the Japanese version of Saints Row: The..
There's a merit to creating a game like Saints Row: The Third
Every trailer is different. Anticipated games always score throngs of trailers, but Saints Row: The Third has had more than most. And what's most exciting is that Volition is yet to hone in on the same thing twice. We've seen crazy game-shows, hitting zombies with dildos and more. Now watch a chick standing on a jumbo jet.
The anticipation for THQ's upcoming Saints Row: The Third in the general media is rather striking
After a few groans and rolled eyes over the game's initial announcement, it's certainly winning journalists over with its zany sense of humour. And it's got us excited. We've only spent a limited amount of time with the title, but we did enjoy calling in an air strike during our disappointingly brief..
Saints Row: The Third is days away from hitting store shelves, but THQ's core games boss Danny Bilson has revealed that a fourth entry in the bonkers series is not far away
In an interview with G4 the executive hinted that the sequel is already in the works, and is guaranteed to be even "wilder" than Volition's upcoming entry. "I already know what Saints Row 4 is about,..
Being a game all about variety, it's unsurprising to see Saints Row: The Third's campaign fleshed out with the undead
Every game has zombies these days, why not the one with the human firing catapult car? But given Saints Row's tone, you'd be foolish for thinking The Third would offer bog-standard horror shootouts. No, it's got a much better method for vanquishing the living dead. Check it out in..
Picture the scene
It's business as usual at THQ headquarters. Excitement is high regarding the publisher's upcoming Saints Row: The Third, and everyone's working hard to ensure the game's the biggest success it possibly can be. Then suddenly Rockstar updates its website, announcing Grand Theft Auto V. The news must have hit like a punch to the throat. THQ boss Brian Farrell says that's not the..
Eagle eyed gamers spotted a description and boxart for Saints Row: Money Shot earlier in the year
The downloadable game (content?) promised to put you in control of a cypher, "a deadly assassin in the world of Saints Row with the most sophisticated weaponry that Ultor has to offer." According to the description, Money Shot was a mini-game in which you used said complex weaponry to ..
With Red Faction: Guerrilla being widely recognised as a pretty good game, many expected that its sequel, Armageddon, would knock things out the park
The problem is, the game just sort of existed. It'd didn't generate any sort of excitement, released without a whimper, and almost immediately disappeared. Environmental artist Wayne Adams believes the game's issue was consistency. "In the end..
The build-up to Saints Row: The Third has been ridiculous
But it's all been manageable. While we might frown at the appearance of a hostile Hot-Dog wielding an enormous pink dildo as a weapon, we can understand it. But this latest live-action trailer... Well, yeah. Erm.
Those of you that purchased the Saints Row: Double Pack or Red Faction Armageddon may have already been invited to participate in the Saints Row: Initiation Station
Everybody else will have to wait until November 1st when the free application launches on PlayStation Network. The downloadable tool will allow players to fiddle with Saints Row: The Third's character creation tool prior to the game's..
THQ's really setting the bar for great trailers with the build-up to its bonkers open-world action adventure game, Saints Row: The Third. The game's latest clip parodies the style of Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3's trailers, complete with wire-frame buildings and deafening bass sounds. Top stuff. Catch it after the break.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine will get a free shot of DLC on October 25th, THQ has announced
The DLC includes two, four-player co-operative scenarios that pitch the Space Marines against hordes of Orks and Foes. Developer Relic is said to be working on more DLC, with future packs available in both gratis and premium guises.
If you thought Saints Row: The Third couldn't get any more nuts than its Tron-inspired trailer — you were wrong Introducing Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax. Its "fun time for the whole family," apparently. You have been warned.
Here, kitty kitty
Following Toy Story 3 and Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension, Puss in Boots is the latest in an increasingly long line of film-to-video-game transitions to feature PlayStation Move support. After the first screenshots a few weeks ago we now have our first look at the game in motion, showing the swordfighting, dancing and...
Well this one's a turn up for the books
You could probably call this a megaton if you wanted. THQ has just announced that the next entry in its Homefront series will be handled by Crysis developer Crytek. What the heck, indeed. Naturally the game will run on Crytek's CryEngine technology. The game's currently scheduled to release in THQ's fiscal year ending March 31st, 2014. We'd assume — given..
This is brilliant. Legendary video game designer Tomonobu Itagaki has been confirmed as a playable character in bonkers open-world title Saints Row: The Third. According to GameSpot the character will be a pre-set character in the game's character customisation mode. The connection — while bizarre — makes sense when you consider that Itagaki's latest project, Devil's Third, is set to be..
We've made it perfectly clear over the past six months or so that we think Saints Row: The Third looks absolutely phenomenal
So to hear THQ gaffer Brian Farrell chat about the game's DLC plans is exceptionally exciting. The executive told an audience at a keynote in San Jose that the publisher is planning 40 weeks of DLC for the ambitious open-world...
Good old Saints Row: The Third
THQ's bit of open-world nonsense looks different with every trailer — hopefully an indication of just how much is crammed into this little package of madness. The game's latest trailer riffs on Tron, and, well, it needs to be seen to be believed. Catch the footage after the jump. So good.
Kitten's got claws
THQ's just released some early screenshots for its first Move-enabled movie tie-in, Puss in Boots, and it's looking pretty decent, actually. The game will let you do all the things Puss himself enjoys: duelling, sneaking and serenading women with a guitar, apparently. We haven't seen the film yet, so maybe that bit will make more...
THQ has revealed that it will publish the winner of last year's Something Unreal competition, The Haunted: Hell's Reach
The PlayStation Network title, which is due to release in 2012, focuses on, well, shooting things up. The game boasts four playable characters, over 20 different types of enemy, 30 stages and four game modes. Sadly it also looks...
THQ and Yuke's upcoming entry to the UFC Undisputed series (UFC Undisputed 3, to be precise) doesn't have a cover athlete
That's where you come in. On September 30 the winner of an online voting campaign will be selected as the face of UFC Undisputed 3, gracing the cover and, well....the cover of the popular UFC game. Players will have the choice between five different athletes (Georges st. Pierre,..
It doesn't seem too long ago since we were writing about UFC Undisputed 2010, but hey, it's already time for UFC Undisputed 3
And that means more sweaty men duking it out in the octagon. Great. Apparently this sport is macho or something? To be fair, the trailer's fairly violent. Sure there are sweaty men in it, but they're punching each other in the face and stuff. We guess that makes things ok..
Amidst footage of people jumping out of planes and weird octopus weapons, we'd kinda forgotten that Saints Row: The Third might have a story underneath all the madness
But the game's latest trailer hints at some kind of plot — albeit a nuts one featuring a luchador wrestler nicknamed "The Walking Apocalypse". Amazing.
While Guillermo Del Toro announced his video game project with THQ last year, it's still at least a year away
But with that release date ambling forward, at least the game's starting to emerge from secrecy a touch. Speaking with MTV, Del Toro revealed that inSANE is a sandbox title, which makes sense given the titles Volition has developed in the past (Saints Row for one). Del Toro also told MTV..
The more we see of Saints Row: The Third, the more incredible it starts to look
Take this eight-minute trailer pulled from one of the game's missions. It has a bit of everything. A shoot-out in a plane, a sky-dive, a fist-fight mid-sky-dive, a shoot-out with a plane mid-mid-sky-dive and then some freefalling. Seriously, this game looks crazy. We can't wait to play it later in the year.
Clearly not content with ditching the Red Faction franchise, THQ has also announced that its dropped the MX vs ATV franchise
The studio had lofty expectations for budget release MX vs ATV Alive, but the title failed to set the sales charts alight leading the publisher to drop the series. The publisher's shut down three internal development teams as a result, with 200 staff losing their jobs. Two..
THQ's not been a huge supporter of PlayStation Move so far, with just de Blob 2 and UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System under its belt, but there's about to be a third addition to the litter: Puss in Boots. The movie tie-in of the Shrek spin-off lands in November with PlayStation Move support, and while we have no...
The game may carry the title All-Stars, but your copy of WWE All-Stars is without all of the stars
At least — right now it is. THQ's just released a new set of characters on the PSN. For $2.99 / £1.99 you'll get an extra three characters added to the game's roster: Big Boss Man, Michael Hayes, and "World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry.
THQ's circled an August 2nd North American release date for its class-based dual-joystick PlayStation Network Warhammer spin-off, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team
Europeans will have to wait until August 10th to get their hands on the game. THQ's uploaded a stack of information about the downloadable title on the PlayStation Blog. Click through there for...
THQ has pulled the plug on Volition's Red Faction series, citing poor sales for recent entry Red Faction: Armageddon
Speaking at an investor call today, CEO Brian Farrell said that publisher does "not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way". Farrell added that the Red Faction development team has now been put on Guillermo del Toro's inSane project. Red Faction:..

THQ's dropped a brand new trailer for its upcoming open-world adventure Saints Row: The Third
