I think I hear someone screeching 'REEEEEEEEEEE' in the distance.

On a more serious note: They have been killing it lately. The only thing I can want from them is a new Alone in the Dark, this time done right. The franchise has suffered long enough.

Dreams won best game, nice. Don't care how that other place reacts to the THQN best company news to be honest.

I've never been a follower or buyer of THQ games, but got to say that Nordic company that scooped them up keeping all these games afloat has been great news.

I don't buy their games, but good to see other gamers can still enjoy playing their franchises.

Reading up on THQ Nordic, they seem to get hold of tons of second tier kinds of games, instead of letting them disappear after the previous developer seems to have given up on it.

Why are we bringing up resetera in a thread dedicating to THQ Nordic? =/ Is it really necessary?

Not sure if I could agree with them being best publisher at gamescom. Only thing I might be interested is Biomutant.

I missed something. Can somebody please explain why THQN and ResetEra are angry at eachother? Im guessing THQN did something that ruffled the feathers of the PC crowd.

THQN hosted an "Ask Me Anything" event on 8chan, a much seedier version of 4chan with some questionable content that gets posted there, with a chequered history of posting some outright illegal stuff too. The person in charge of the AMA made some risque jokes in response to people posting things that would upset a certain sub-group of people, and the person answering questions generally got on well with the edgy people there.

They apologized for it but ResetEra didn't accept the apology, so now they get a stick up their arse whenever they're mentioned in any positive light.

It was regarding them hosting an AMA on 8Chan. They apologized for it, but that's not enough. Now in their mentally unstable fragility they constantly state that THQN is complicit in child pornography.

One of THQ marketing guys thought he'd be edgy and host an AMA on 8chan. It did not last long and was pulled as it was an obviously poorly thought out decision.

Now Resetera won't ever let it go and to them THQ support and condone Child porn and terrorism. At this point nobody cares, not THQ not any other gaming community EXCEPT Resetera.

Why would Reset care? Just wondering.
They had an AMA on 8chan. During that AMA they even announced their new E3 games including DAH remake months before E3. It was truly an amazing thread. Resetera however hated it and had a melty saying THQ went onto a “pedophile website” despite the fact that 8ch like nearly all sites have strict no cp rules.

I'm super glad and happy that THQ Nordic won that award as they deserve it. Easily one of the best if not the best AA publishers in the industry. They acquired Gunfire Games recently which makes me happy. They've given me three great games in Metro Exodus, Darksiders 3 and Battle Chasers Nightwar with Darksiders Genesis, Biomutant, Desperados 3 and Destroy All Humans Remake in 2020.

Looking forward to PAX in September as I believe it's there where they will be announcing the release date for BioMutant. If not, it will be at some point in September.

The Era reaction is hilarious. The were already well over 20 bans before the mods came in to comment on the 3rd page:




Here are some more troll comments before then:








I wonder how many people are on Era just for the trolling, to see how far they can go to the edge without getting banned. I remember a class we had at school with a super old and super strict teacher. He would send us outside the classroom for the slightest provocation, and it became a game for us to see what we could get away with. My friend once got sent outside within seconds of the class starting for merely smiling at the teacher (or smirking, as the teacher claimed). We didn't mind getting sent to stand outside the class, as then we could mess about with the other naughty kids that had be sent outside their class, which was great fun.

I suppose GAF is the equivalent of the area where all the naughty kids get sent :messenger_tears_of_joy:

On the topic at hand, while THQN are doing a good job so fay, I do worry about them becoming too powerful.

All those bans were AFTER the staff communication post which is fucked up because how can you ban users for drive by trolling via a staff message AFTER all those users already posted??? SMH.
