I agree. Ubisoft's DRM might be a major pain in the ass, but at least they still exert real effort as far as their IPs are concerned as far as I can see. Assassin's Creed 3 had a lot of mistakes but they at least bought new stuff to the table.

I want them to survive, but I don't want Ubisoft to touch anything ever again... Damn it to hell, I can't win. ;_;

Better to Ubi than EA or Activision in my honest opinion.

I would of liked Take Two however.

Ubisoft acquiring THQ would be the second-best case scenario. Compared to Activision and EA, at least Ubisoft makes relatively quality games and aren't actively trying to make gaming so bland. I've never played the Assasin's Creed games but I know they're pretty great, and I'm really excited for the upcoming Watch Dogs. Plus, I've heard they're cutting down on the DRM, though I think Far Cry 3 still required an online connection. But overall, Ubisoft's okay so long as they don't meddle with their developer's work that much.

Best case scenario? Valve gets Relic, Ubisoft gets everything else.

If you wanna play a fun drinking game, read these comments and take a shot every time someone says something along the lines of "Go away, Ubisoft. Oh well, it's better than Activision or EA." You'll be drunk by page 2.

I hope Take Two is just playing it quietly, more then anything else I want THQ to stick around though. THQ has always been one of the publishers I enjoyed; UFC games were great fun as were the games relic put out.

My guess is that they want to pick up the Saint's Row name (since it's really the only profitable asset) and possibly Darksiders to a lesser extent, and will downsize the rest to the acquisitions and staff - they can't be interested in THQ for its management or production efficiency skills.

Dammit, not Ubithoff [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/stolen-pixels/7265-Stolen-Pixels-175-Ubisoft]...
Ugh.. Yes, better than EA and Activision indeed, but I would've liked to see Take2 make a bid instead. Valve is probably way too much to hope for, since they've always done their own thing.

That would be pretty awesome honestly.

And like vultures in the desert, Ubisoft sees THQ crawling and swoops down. Can you give them A WEEK before trying to pick their carcass for meat?

Anyone still playing this game by page 3's probably got minor liver poisoning after this. I hope you're proud of yourself :p
