Many of our IPs will only generate $50k a year, but it's still money. Sure, it's amounts that EA and the big guys wouldn't care about, but now we have hundreds of IPs, and in a few years, we'll have a few hundred more. It will add up to something much bigger."

They had tons of money even before they got into the gaming market but the assets they owned weren't well known if at all. When THQ died they saw it as a golden opportunity because all of THQ's assets were being sold dirt cheap. Since then they've been rebuilding the THQ brand by consolidating all of its IPs.

I hope they do good because right now they're the only AAA publisher that fully supports no-DRM releases and while THQ games aren't exactly smash hits, they do have a following and make decent numbers. Plus a lot of their studios are in Europe, so producing games is a bit cheaper.

Lots of investors and a crazy Swedistani CEO. They trudge through the European game market and bought up a lot of small time devs and IPs, then after THQ went belly up and the remaining assets they sold are now garbage, they started making deals to get them for a cheaper price while also getting into talks to Nickelodeon to get some of their old games back for nostalgia purposes. So far it's working, The Remasters they did on old THQ properties sold well.

Speaking of THQ

Today one of their dev studios released This is the Police 2

You remember This is the police? A hipster management game and a gangster drama?

Well the sequel is quite decent, they improved some things and tactical combat is quite nice, a move in the right direction

On the other hand game is balls to the wall hard, too hard to be enjoyable, with no saving system other than daily checkpoints and very slow tactical combat i advise everybody to at most pirate, at best dont even bother

On the plus side there were few funny on the nose type of events and plottwists

For eg. the game was being promoted with the fact that "you will play as a young woman sheriff in a backward rural town". Dont worry, there is a plottwist there and you wont be playing as her

There were also 2 events i spotted where in one bunch of fedoras and a girl in "thick glasses" were protesting outside of church and she was holding one of the Darwin s book, you have a option to praise the God and taze her successfully dispersing the crowd second one is when bunch of animal activists release pigs that were transported for slaughter but the pigs were hungry and started chasing their "saviors"

RGN hell hard

As in you can buy new cops for a resource, a resource you can gain only by doing successful missions, each mission failed/half asses/skipped equals loss of said resource

Here comes the hard part, you are constantly understaffed, daily you need at least 8-10 officers to handle all the calls, officers can randomly not go to work, get drunk, resign, die, retire, ask you for one day vacations because "my roof is leaking" "i have to buy medicine for my uncle" "i have to go to optometrist" and other bullshit like that, cops can refuse to work with each other "i wont work with a rookie" "i wont work with a woman" etc…

And each call requires certain amount of experience that officers have to even start, eg one officer has 300 xp, second one has 200, those are your only oficers left to answer that call that needs 500xp to start, well too fucking bad, those guys dont want to work with eachother. Secondly you can only get officers to work for one day, second day they are usually to tired to work at all or they might just straight up not show to work. Whats worse this might happen to newly employed officers too.

What else, oh random events that give you bullshit like "a nice lady wants to work as a cleaner in the police station because you helped her" next day your officer says too you that he proposed to the cleaning lady after knowing her for 2 hours and he is leaving the police. Bullshit like that happens often in this game.

Also lack of saves is a real pain in the ass, i wanted to restart the game, and each time you want to start a new game you must do a tutorial mission, skip trough all the cutscenes (with are pretty ok for the first time) and then do everything day by day, too fucking bad if you wanted to restart from the 2nd week, you gotta start from the beginning.

All that is fixable and i hope the do fix it, then it might be a decent game, for now pirate or avoid

According to a report from IGN, Gunfire Games — the studio behind Darksiders 3 — also revealed a few special editions of the game. The standard collectors edition will run players $149.99 and come with the game, a Steelbook case, an art book, the soundtrack, exclusive cosmetic DLC, and an 11-inch Fury statue.

However, for serious Darksiders fans, there’s another option: the Apocalypse Edition will cost players a hefty $399.99. This premium edition will come with three extra 11-inch statues — featuring Death, War and Vulgrim the shopkeeper — as well as a Four Horsemen amulet and a 30-inch-by-40-inch wall scroll. The Apocalypse Edition will also come with the standard collectors edition items.

I'm skeptical because I've heard it literally nowhere but from you, and for a preachy game you came up with some really shit examples. Like I said. Refugees escaping Orcs happened in Spellforce 1, and this is a company which I've seen rehash their ideas more than once. For all we know, it's a carbon copy of what's from 1, which you saw that and instantly started shitting the bed about the migrant crisis.

That being said. I'm still probably not going to play it because Spellforce 1 went from 10/10 to complete shit really fast, and I doubt the devs did anything to improve it.

>4 years of development is quick

It was a shit game, but it was the only thing Volition was working on for years. It flopped hard and they had to lay off like 1/4th of their employees. It's way to soon for them to announce something new.

>It could just be Saints Row 1+2 Remastered which THQ hinted at on their Twitter

Unless they've tweeted something new I haven't seen all that has happened is someone asked if they could port them and they said they'd look into it. And unless something changed at Volition you shouldn't really expect a port because they lost the source code.

I don't believe them for a god damn second. Additionally I can see them giving SR1+2 a new coat of paint, new shooting and driving mechanics.

Americans are jelly of ancient european beliefs and lore, so they bastardize everything.

Other than maybe Saints Row what else could they announce at Gamescom?

My guess is that Strife doesn't have his own game, so his design may change still.

I think that they've announced they're going to be releasing games for when discord starts selling them, maybe it's the same people propping up discord giving them money.

Is the switch worth it as a handheld device lad? I want a new one to play while I am on a bus.

I am pretty confident that Darksiders 3 is going to be pozzed, all that Gunfire has done so far is vrshit and a lot of their promo materials have negresses front and center.

Fury also acts like a massive cunt from everything I've seen, while in the book and comic she's a lot nicer and decent waifu material.

The new game by Dambuster formerly Free Radical, new self developed title from their number of licenses and studios owned, possibly a new Piranha Bytes title since Elex went over butter smooth with them, probably more info about Generation Zero, Darksiders 3, Biomutant and Fade to Silence and some random oddball indie and AA titles they decided to fund, more than likely from older European studios.

When have they said that? They're plenty happy with GOG, Steam and physical. And no, I don't think any of the VC firms invested into Discord (Tencent, Timewarner) have any holdings in THQ Nordic. I checked THQ Nordic's investor page, and all I could find is Lars himself who founded the company and is the CEO and some random Scandinavian/European companies, banks and investment firms. See pic.

It's shocking, but actually releasing games people want to play for respectable prices tends to rake in unholy sums of cash. Crazy.

Diablo 3 on consoles is the only good version of that game because if couch coop.

As a portable handheld, not really. Like Ridley, it's too big to take on the go, but it's pretty comfy in bed.

Or a new timesplitters since they own dambuster

There is no good version of Diablo 3.

It was the best couch coop action RPG for all of current and last gen consoles period unless you count Dragon's Crown, but personally I consider that to be a beat em up.
