Metro 2033 Heading To The Big Screen

Posted on September 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

THQ’s Metro 2033 is heading to the big screen with help from producer Mark Johnson and writer F. Scott Frasier, Kotaku reports.  Johnson has worked on the likes of  Chronicles of Narnia and  Galaxy Quest. Fraiser only have a few writing credits, all of them videogame related, dating back to 1997.

Metro 2003: Last Light, the next game in the post apocalyptic first person shooter franchise is due out sometime next year. Presumably the film and Last Light will have not tie into each other, as developing a feature film in under a year seems near impossible unless you are the asylum.


THQ Promises To ‘Turn Up The Attitude’ In WWE 13

Posted on May 30, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Did a 1990s nostalgia movement begin without someone alerting me? THQ is looking to recapture the excitement of the WWE Attitude era from the late 90s – early 00s with the release of WWE ’13 this fall for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.

THQ promises that prominent attitude era super stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin will return for WWE ’13. Perhaps we will also see The Rock in this game? He did make a pretty awesome appearance at Wrestlemania this past April.

WWE 13’s single player campaign will be centered completely on the Attitude Era and will focus on eight to be announced super-stars from that time. THQ promises a full roster reveal, multiplayer details and more in the coming months.

Want some new threads for your Xbox Live avatar but don’t want to shell out 80 points for a new shirt? Save yourself some Microsoft Points (and by extension real world money) with Ubisoft’s free Darksiders II avatar T-Shirt.

The free T-shirt can be obtained by visiting the Darksiders II facebook page and following the link to the Avatar giveaway page. The free avatar T-Shirt actually looks pretty neat. Usually they are simply the game’s logo on a white or black background but THQ’s offering however features some pretty interesting art of Death, the games protagonist.

Darksiders II will be released later this summer for the Xbox 360 and Playstation3. A Wii-U version is expected to launch alongside Nintendo’s new console sometime this fall.


Darksiders II Delayed Until August

Posted on April 18, 2012 by Matthew Regier

It won’t be until August now when we see Vigil Game’s highly anticipated sequel, Darksiders II. The game will be facing a two month delay from its initial release date at the end of June, so we will be seeing the title hit shelves sometime in August. Executive vice president of THQ, Danny Bilson is stressing that the delay is only to add polish to the title.

After a rather shaky year in 2011 many would think that this delay means bad news, but is actually quite the opposite. Ever since Saints Row 3 has officially shipped over four million copies, the company has been able to adjust their losses for the Q4 sales expectations, they are able to squeeze in the extra development time for what is being said to be a much larger game than its predecessor.
