After the big auction for its top-shelf intellectual property and game studios last month, the bones of former publishing giant THQ have announced that the company's remaining franchises are now to be sold as part of a "court-approved sales process."
The series up for grabs include Darksiders, Homeworld, Red Faction and Destroy All Humans!
Final bids for the properties are due on April 15. THQ says it has already received over "100 expressions of interest" regarding "various titles" still left in its vaults.
There will be six items in total for sale, four properties available individually and two "bundle" deals, one for internal properties, the other for licensed IP.
Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld and MX will be sold separately. Big Beach Sports, Destroy All Humans!, Summoner and "more" are included in the internal bundle, while Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander, Worms and "more" make up the licensed pack.
If anyone would like to join me in buying Homeworld, here's the relevant information you need to know:
Interested bidders must provide: 1) complete identification, including the names of corporate officers or those authorized to act on the bidder's behalf; 2) written evidence of authority to enter into the anticipated transaction; and 3) proof of financial ability to perform the contemplated transaction. Only those bidders who meet all three requirements will be provided access to confidential information about each lot of titles once a non-disclosure agreement has been executed. Documentation meeting these three requirements should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every dark cloud has a silver lining. It’s a delightfully optimistic statement, though in truth, it’s not always, well, true. (Note: I mean this in the metaphorical sense. I don’t claim to be an expert on clouds’ relative silver content, as I still believe they’re made of cotton candy.) Case in point: at first, it sure seemed like Darksiders dev Vigil Games would be getting some of said rain in its gothic Death mascara while everyone else found new homes in the wake of THQ’s collapse. But now, that dark cloud within a silver-lined dark cloud has found a different silver lining. On the wings of nanosuit-clad angels, Crytek’s descended to save the day. Or, well, most of it, anyway.
Surprisingly, blood suckers aren't as common in video games as you might expect. They might appear as a generic type of enemy, and of course there are a few of them in the Castlevania series. We collected some of these vampires, paying attention to leave out those who like to carry people on their backs.
This former elf is the scariest thing ever created that has anything to do with elves. Geez those random entries!
Probably the only vampire in the world that looks like Phoenix Wright on steroids.
Even if he is not a real one, he's got all the abilities—and the right to be on this list as well.

Just as Vamp, Vincent is rather a result of an experiment than a natural born vampire, but the similarities are quite obvious.
The main characers Kain or Raziel should have been the obvious choices, but Vorador—who also has a major role—looks just so much cooler.

At least these legendary guys bring back something from the classic Dracula look.
Both Vampire games—Redemption and Bloodlines—are full of vampires (sounds incredible, right?) but the only possible pick is this memorable NPC from the second game.

The weird western-steampunk hybrid style, mixed with classic vampire lore made this character (and the game!) really exciting.

One of those female vampires that look badass rather than cute—and there's absolutely no problem with that.
