THQ's Losses

THQ's latest financial report has more of the bad new for the company, showing losses and inspiring the company to cut its forecast for the full year. This also has details on THQ's recently announced refocus, and also has word that: "The company also has in development two unannounced core titles for release in fiscal 2013."

Oh THQ. If only you'd done Red Faction Guerilla II :P

Armaggedon was not as bad as people make it (I actually enjoyed as long as it lasted) but a Guerilla II would have been at least 10 times more exciting, that's for sure.

I still don't understand why, as well liked as G was, why they went a totally different direction with the next one, talking away what everyone liked. The only thing I could figure was it was designed as a quick cash in...


Yeah that never made much sense. PlinkingCotton or someone else used to defend this as a return to the series roots but the first games were always gimmicky, mediocre stuff anyway. People liked RFG despite the flaws and they really needed to do was improve on the base they had built. Instead they went the opposite direction and basically made it way too simplistic and linear. It did a few interesting things but was generally just another corridor shooting experience with a lame story.

It's a shame because they basically killed the franchise due to being greedy, they shit out RFA quickly and didn't give the fans what they wanted.
