In a courtroom yesterday, games-maker THQ was dissolved and its assets individually sold off to the highest bidders. Lots of people have lost their jobs, and that just fucking sucks. Plenty of others have found new homes and, if their luck holds, bright futures in their new digs. Reading about how the company has fallen, what precious parts were plucked to safety as it was felled, and what didn't, left me with a mixture of emotions. All odd, like.
AND HERE'S WHY.
Hi, I'm Adam from ten years ago. Ask me what I think of THQ. Go on.
They're a bit rubbish, innit. WWF and stuff, right? Pfft.
Hi, I'm Adam from right the hell now. Ask me what I think about THQ.
They've published, financed, and directly control the creators of some of my most favourite games.
