Yeaahhhh THQ are going to be in serious trouble if they can't find another IP to rely on. The audience for Saint's Row is obviously there, but they can't sell that franchise to people with the frequency that they apparently need to.

Hmm. I do love Saints Row, it's a tongue-in-cheek riff on GTA.

With that in mind, my suggestion is for THQ to start doing this with other franchises:

A comedy Assassin game where you get to enter the body of various failed assassin's who need their lives turned around. the fact that they are clowns, pimps and other types less suited to being an assassin makes this all the more harder.

^ heh, I'd buy that in an instant! Wink

But although I am glad to hear the SR series is doing well, I just hope SR4 won't be a rush job (which I fear it will). Especially given how stripped down SR3 was (and the DLC so incredibly lackluster).

I'm looking forward to see how much Enter the Dominatrix brings to the table, which should be a good indicator of intent.

Forgot about WWE Allstars. I hate modern wrestling games, but this brought back the magic of the SNES WWF titles.

I imagine THQ's 'Dawn of War' franchise is pretty high on their IP list. Unfortunately I think THQ haven't succeeded with making the Warhammer license work in other genres on the core game platforms. Personally, I'd love to see the Warhammer license within the Volition Geo-Mod tech engine. Amazing destruction physics with awesome, over-the-top character licenses. I have to think that THQ didn't treat the Red Faction license properly and got too fixated with trying to out-do EA's Dead Space (anyone who's had a go with Red Faction: Armageddon might see the obvious similarities).
