RIP THQ THQ is basically no more now that the Bankruptcy sale has finished.  If you’re unfamiliar with what’s been happening, don’t live under a rock for a decade.  They’ve pretty much destroyed themselves over the last 8-10 years and now we have the end result.  Some of the purchases are expected and some are a little interesting, but the part that I find most intriguing is what didn’t get purchased.  Darksiders was not purchased, or even bid on, by ANYONE.  This is a little odd to me because they actually are pretty good games.  Click the READ MOAR for the full list and let us know what you think in the comments.
