Here's your Company of Heroes 2 campaign trailer

I'm really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ's collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This tra...

Top ten best THQ games: Remembering a giant photo
Top ten best THQ games: Remembering a giant
by Allistair Pinsof

When assessing a publisher's impact on the industry, we tend to focus on the highs rather than consistency. THQ was anything but consistent, putting out Nintendo DS shovelware, rushed licensed games, and taking part in one of the absolute worst games of all time with Mohawk & Headphone Jack. And yet, THQ occupies a warm place in our hearts. Those three letters represent some of the best times we had with games of the past decade, bringing unknown studios like Volition and Relic into the limelight.

Once we scraped off all the Bratz games and pet sims, we had a hard time determining THQ's top ten best.

Dynamic weather hazards, TrueSight, and now a progressive leveling system are the three pillars Relic is building Company of Heroes 2 on.

While we've talked at length about these first two elements, the leveling system is what caught my eye the most on this third go around, taking more than a few cues from the Call of Duty series.

Humble THQ Bundle nets over $3.3 million (and counting) photo
Humble THQ Bundle nets over $3.3 million (and counting)
by Jim Sterling

Despite proving controversial, THQ's "Humble Bundle" has raked in $3.3 million since it launched last Thursday, as over 580,000 customers take the chance to snap up games for as little as $1.00. According to GI.biz, share prices have risen to $1.60 from $1.07 -- up by 37.96%.

The "pay what you want" bundle includes Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Armageddon and Company of Heroes, and the average buyer is opting to spend $5.64. Paying above the average entitles you to a free copy of Saints Row: The Third

Although proving successful, the deal has nonetheless touched a nerve with some folk, who expect all humble bundles to be indie, cross-platform, and DRM free. THQ's games don't fit those expectations, being AAA titles that require both Steam and Windows. Still, it's not calling itself the Humble Indie Bundle, and it's not promising anything it isn't delivering, so I don't quite see the problem.

Given THQ's troubles, whatever the deal lacks in Indie, it certainly makes up for in Humble.
