    I found this article about a week ago

    Now I just cant get this out of my head, THQ thinks they are losing revenues because of roms and piracy. THQ is about the worst company there is, Im not even sure how they go about making games, but im sure its similar to the episode of south park that depicts how family guy episodes are made.

    THQ is not selling many games because they plain out suck. Even when they get a good franchise like WWE, UFC, they really know how to run something into the ground. They are the absolutely worst people who should be commenting on the video gaming industry, what a horrible shitty company THQ. They dont even deserve to be talking about Nintendos 3DS, nor should they be allowed to release anymore games.

    lol here is a list of all the great games THQ gave us..
    THQ Games Full List of Releases

    The Nintendo DS software market is often reported as being more heavily affected by piracy than its home console cousins, so third-party software publishers welcome Nintendo's claims that its upcoming 3DS handheld would be a tougher nut to crack -- and THQ executive Ian Curran corroborates those statements, saying "there's technology built in that device to really combat piracy."

    "The problem with the DS market in the last few years, particularly with the DS Lite, is that it's just been attacked by piracy. It's made it almost impossible to shift any significant volume," Curran said to Computer And Video Games. The DSi combated it a little bit, but the 3DS has taken that a step further."

    Portable game piracy has been a hot-button issue among publishers and analysts. "We fear a kind of thinking is become widespread that paying for software is meaningless," Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said earlier this year. And Japan's CESA trade organization claimed last month that portable console game piracy has cost the worldwide game industry $41.5 billion over five years.

    Despite his confidence, Curran was not able to describe the mechanism by which the 3DS is expected to thwart pirates.

    "I actually asked Nintendo to explain the technology and they said it's very difficult to do so because it's so sophisticated," he said. "They combated the piracy on Dsi, which they don't believe is cracked yet, but they know they've been hurt across the world and they believe the 3DS has got technology that can stop that."

    The only decent games out of that list is the Broken Sword series - which I will admit are some of my favourite games, especially the first 2.

    The rest, just, well you know. Are just bad.

    But THQ makes Danny Phantom: Urban Jungle! Without them, what else could I disguise my AK2i as? [​IMG]

    If my DSi could keep track of my favorite game based on how many hours it's been played on it, DP:UJ is definitely my "favorite game". [​IMG]

    EDIT: Not gonna lie though, Evil Dead Regeneration is an amazing game, and is definitely one of my favorites. And Conker's Bad Fur Day is the best N64 game that isn't Zelda. However, it appears THQ only made CBFD in Europe, where Rareware made it in North America.

    Rareware made the game (and is a British company, fuck yeah). THQ just published it in the UK, I dunno who published it in America.

    Also, Banjo Pilot. YEAHHHHHHHH!

    according to that list THQ gave us(whether publisher or developer):

    broken sword
    red faction
    warhammer 40.000
    company of heroes
    saints row
    sonic advance and sonic pinball
    titan quest

    I don't know about you guys,but I enjoyed all of those games...I'm sure there are more good games in that list that I haven't played,but those are the ones I HAVE played.
    (would have put conker there as well but as gnargle said....)

    I don't really think that the 3ds will "kill piracy"
    ubisoft said the same thing with assassin's creed 2 and it eventually got cracked.
    sure,it may have taken 2 months for a full working crack but they cracked it

    I'm sure someone will find a way to crack 3ds as well
