someone needs to tell them that the new logo epitomizes their awful taste in the matters of typography...

Now they just need to put the same amount of effort and resources into product - i've always thought that redesigning new logo's for the sake of it is a distraction and a waste of time - I dont care who made what, or their logo/style - just make it good!

Eww.

Did they hire the same people who did the London 2012 logo?

(They must have paid more though since the THQ logo is better than the London 2012 one, to be fair... even though both suck)

What is it with big companies trying to be cool and refreshing when 'updating' a logo/design/interface (etc), but instead cocking up and coming off as outdated and out of touch?

They should have stuck with the old logo. The old one was decent enough and professional. This one looks crap.

looks like something you would expect to see on a small rectangular sign in a plain boring smelly industrial site and never know what the hell they make or service they provide. Change my arse.

I actually like it, didn't think that much of the old one so for me its an improvment. It may even help me begin to end my petty belief that its only good for making WWE games and games based on cartoons and toys.

the designer or design agency must be laughing! it would have been more work to pitch the logo to THQ than it would have been to design it. I wonder what the pitch was like LOL

It... uh... I was thinking of making a silly comparison, but gave up. I'll settle for "it looks like ****"...
