THQ Stock Drops

Gamasutra reports that THQ's stock price plunged about 25% today, though they add that "a small portion of that decrease has been reversed in after hour trading as of this writing." They speculate this may be due in part to reviews for Homefront, as Metacritic shows the just-released first-person shooter as having scores of 74 (mixed or average) on PC, 72 (mediocre) on Xbox 360, and 76 (generally favorable) on PlayStation3. They note a couple of other factors that may play into this are disappointing sales of the Wii-based uDraw tablet and platformer De Blob 2. Thanks Joao.

I realize I don't have much grounds for this, but I was hoping for something good with this game. Yeah, you can nitpick the story, but at least it was mildly different in that the USA was being attacked instead of the opposite.

However, the reviews have generally been lukewarm with regards to the gameplay. Additionally, even if it had really great gameplay, a four hour (or less) single player game would not warrant a purchase.

I guess there is multi-player for all the bunny hoppers out there, but if that is the main focus of the game, there has been an equally appathetic reporting of it.

DB2 looks somewhat interesting, but I have many other games to play.
Guess I will wait for the $5.00 sale,
