    I was really glad to hear that Darksiders and Red Faction got picked up, sounds like Nordic made a hell of a deal to me though

    Was hoping Platinum Games would have picked Darksiders up, but ah well.

    I don't know much about red faction but the news about Darksiders made my day, so hopefully that project continues now, it is worth it!
    Do somebody know what's about the Warhammer 40.000 licences?

    Reverted to Games Workshop, re-negotiating with SEGA so Relic can keep working with it. Very likely to stay with the same team that did Space Marine/Dawn of War II.

    Never heard of Nordic games to be honest. This is certainly a surprise. Hopefully they make good use of all these licences. That's a hell of a lot of games if each licence becomes a new title.

    Where did MX vs ATV end up? I see it in the tags but I don't see it listed in either results list. Does that mean Nordic acquired it?

    Here's hoping for another Stuntman title! (no need to bother yourselves with multiplayer this time...)

    I think it got eliminated from the list during formating, I'll edit it back where it belongs.

    It's sucks to see all this happen to THQ. But at least the games have a home one way or another.

    Me personally, out of the above list, I'd like to see a new Destroy All Humans! game. But i know I'm probably one of not many.

    Nexuiz was a licensed title?

    Also, I'm sure we'll here about the exorcism and following volcano-ceremony-related destruction of the uDraw brand.

    Nordic bought uDraw. Someone start digging a corporate grave...

    Glad Darksiders has a new home, just hope they know what to do with half these ips. Granted, most of them should probably jusy be re-invented anyways.
    Turns out, actually playing a game you want to finish helps you complete it...

    Oh man! I'm so happy that there might be another Darksiders now!

    Me too. I thought the original crapped all over Diablo 2.

    All Star Cheer Squad and Locks Quest: Construction Combat sound so good I'm surprised more companies weren't trying to snatch them up. I'm going to go buy them both right now!
