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

The content revolves around the Boss and new character Jenny Jaros who attempt to...

Back of the net
EA Sports’ excellent soccer sim, FIFA 12, has enjoyed its eighth week at the top of the UK sales charts — beating out competition from Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to maintain its place at the top of the league. A lack of new releases meant it was largely as you were in the multiformat top-ten,...
