THQ Sale Update

Distressed Debt Investing tweets about the efforts to settle the affairs of bankrupt THQ, a process that has been called into question by investors. The feed says that five strategic buyers are in due diligence and that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is one of the companies interested in the sale. The judge is reconvening on Monday after denying a Debtor In Possession motion and telling the involved parties to work out the issues presented during yesterday's proceedings. Thanks BeefJack.

People want to play their games w/o hassle. Is that wrong? Do they need to jump through hoops?

Is it too much to ask that the people who design GFWL have an IQ above room temperature IQ? Maybe they could spend some of their billions fixing it instead of putting out press releases about how much they love pc gamers.

I bought Dark Souls on the christmas sale to play since people rave about it. The bundled version of GFWL wouldn't work, the game crashed to desktop since it couldn't login. I had to uninstall GFWL and the Marketplace application (why are there two different applications?). Then I had to download and place a different xlive.dll into the %system32% directory by hand, then I had to reinstall GFWL. GFWL had to update. Finally I get it up and running, go to login and GFWL gives me error code that Google turns up nothing on. Finally after digging 20 minutes through a bunch of jumbled community forums I find out its because you need to login to xbox.com and accept the terms of service. Why you need to login to XBOX.COM for GAMES FOR WINDOWS is fucking beyond me. Finally I go to login and it works but Dark Souls plays in an offline mode if you don't use a GFWL online profile which I don't want to bother with so I give up and uninstall the game.

At best Games for Windows might not get in your way, at worst it completely wastes your fucking time and is basically unsupported abandonware by its parent company. It is fucking useless and should not be implemented since there are way better solutions. It is just lazy porting shit and microsoft moneybags that get it used.

Yeah but I had no problems with GFWL or securom with either batman game or SR3. If you want to see a worse case scenario of GFWL go play Fable 3 on the PC.

Well SR3 didn't have it. The Arkham threads on steam forums are another matter entirely.

See here, here, here, here, and here.

edit: And just because you have no problems doesn't mean everyone has no problems.

nin no offense, but those posts are made by the low end of the gene pool. When you can't use a Home key in GFWL? When you can't even follow simple directions how to activate your game? One of the posts even flat out says that I'm not a PC Gamer please make it as simple as possible....

People on the Steam forums that make Do Not Buy topics... they... they really are a different breed of human being aren't they.

Then you see "thanks man" replies... it's like... ugh.

Unless they are going to take the Saints Engine and make a Batman game out of it I really can't think of any reason I'd want WB to but THQ.

Keep in mind, they bought Midway with no real interest in using their tech or IP for ongoing WB/WBIE projects.

There is, simply put, the idea for a rising publisher to pad their portfolio, and THQ would do just that at a fairly attractive price point.

Especially with how they seem to love GFMFWL and securom (see Arkham series)...

WBIE is one of the interested parties?

Did I not call that, oh... a few months ago?

*takes bow*
