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.
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.

It'll be interesting to see how all of these split up. I never had a chance to play the Destroy All Humans games. Were they any good?

I wonder if any of the big 3 would consider buying them?

Nintendo probably wouldn't buy Darksiders because they already have Zelda, maybe they would consider Homeworld, or maybe Sony and Microsoft would do.

I will be sad if Darksiders or Red Faction don't get bought by anybody.

Darksiders is a damn good action game, too bad that I know people that just overlooked it though, calling it a "Generic Zelda Clone".

Don't even get me started on Red Faction. Red Faction I & II are two of my favorite shooters from last gen + Guerrilla was good too.
