Forget Red Faction - Make Company of Heroes 2 already!

Or, as THQ own the rights, how about making Freespace 3 - I'd buy 5 copies!

I thought that too initially, then realised that he mentioned gamers not customers.

To be fair THQ are one of the few companies who still dare to release PC exclusive games and not just crappy console ports

yeah i guess your right, altho losing that much money could potentially mean having to start cross platforming.

You know how people have irrational dislikes of some people or things. Well I have one with THQ. I just think WWE and kiddy games and yes, "console tards" and can't get beyond it. I know they do other stuff, but still...
Also the THQ games I do have, the cases they come in have the title on the spine printed upside down to all my other games, that also irritates me.

Nope, cause usually that's what it means, lol. Console = fail, in my opinion, their proprietary business models, to try and force certain games to a certain platform only hurts gamers, and they stiffle innovation IMO. I have a 360 BTW, for sports games only, if sports games got the attention on PC as dumbsoles, i would sell my red ring system in a sec.
