THQ to auction off Homeworld, Red Faction, and other IPs

2:00 AM on 02.27.2013 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Darksiders, Costume Quest, MX series, Destroy All Humans, way more

THQ sold off a majority of their biggest gaming franchises last month, and now they're ready to continue the process with some of their other big titles. THQ intends to sell off their remaining IP in six specific lots:

  • Darksiders franchise
  • Red Faction franchise
  • Homeworld franchise
  • MX franchise
  • Other owned software (Big Beach Sports, Destory All Humans!, Summoner, more)
  • Other licensed software (Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander, Worms, more)

The full break down of the each lot can be read below. Bids must be submitted by April 1, 2013, and final bids are due by April 15. Additionally, some of these bids will simply be over the rights to distribute games on specific platforms, as the overall intellectual property is not for sale.

THQ released a statement saying that they've "received more than 100 expressions of interest in purchasing various titles; consequently, a vigorous sale is anticipated." Hopefully these games find some good homes.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
