The lights are on
THQ sold off most of its larger assets with its Chapter 11 case earlier this year, but there are still a few leftover properties that THQ is ready to sell off including Darksiders, Red Faction, and Worms, among others.
THQ will open up the bidding on April 1, and shut it down on April 15. There are six bundles available for bidding. THQ says that it has already spoken to many interested parties, and it expects that the auction will have a lot of bids.
You can see the full list of available bundled properties by heading to page two.

Is there a list of what they've already sold and who it was sold to?
Wait... THQ is still alive?!
Well All Star Karate might fit with Microsoft's Kinect thing.
I hope something gets done with the Full Spectrum Warrior franchise, I'd love to see another sequel.
I wonder if anybody has the details of how downloads work while this goes on?
If you download an entire game or dlc from MS,Sony, or Steam. Do they hold onto the money until a new owner is acquired? Does the downloadable payments go to a holding company or a special account temporarily set up?
What would happen if between the companies collapse and a new owner taking control, a games sales skyrocketed to the point that its estimated value was way less than its current value? Say Darksiders 2 sold 10,000 units in a matter of a few weeks before being bid on.
I can make a logical guess to the answers of all these questions. But what do any of you guys think? Or does someone actually know how this works?
sucks *** emassively
I wonder how much money THQ needs to break even?
Ill buy worms
Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please, let the Darksiders games continue!
As long as Darksiders, Destroy All Humans, and Red Faction are bought, I'll be happy.
My darksiders loving friend will be happy to hear this.
Ahhh I forgot about full spectrum warrior. The first one was a great game. It was also one of the first games I ever played on Xbox live...good times
I'd like to bid $200 for Destroy All Humans LOL Seriously though, lots of fun with the first game and an IP with a lot of potential. Other than that let's make Darksiders an uber-adult masterpiece :-D
Nintendo should buy Darksiders and incorporate it into the Zelda Universe, or Metroid Universe, or Mario Universe, or just the Darksiders Universe!
Hope their properties are used well.
I hope Darksiders ends up in a good place.
