THQ's financial troubles are going to make the publisher's presence somewhat diminished this summer. This year, it won't have booths at E3 in June or gamescom in August. While it seems like a reasonable decision due to the costs involved, with Darksiders II just around the corner it will be a missed opportunity to generate more interest. The publisher will still be at E3, just not with a booth, but it's not clear if it will have a presence at Gamescom at all.
I'm sure there are a lot of folk already looking forward to Darksiders 2, so hopefully sales from that will give THQ a boost. While it's published a few duds and the UDraw tablet was a failure, it's also published some crackers.
