And a lot of people are on board, but there are thousands of other people at THQ who weren't involved with that fiasco. Saying fuck THQ as in the entire company when it was a handful of people who responsible for the garbage fire kinda sucks imo.
Forgiving that would have come more easily if there would have been consequences. There were none.
Don’t be a disingenuous git please. When someone says fuck my company, I’m pretty sure they’re not directly talking about me the majority of the time.
The people making the spongebob game didn't host the AMA and have no control over the guy that did. But that doesn't matter because the CEO didn't apologize hard enough I guess, so every dev attached is also complicit according to idiots on era
Why is it so important for people to argue on such a pedantic level about this? I say fuck the entire company because the leadership was involved and faced no sanctions and are still there making decisions. Until that changes fuck THQ.
The CEO didn't apologize at all. Take your disingenuous and child porn apologist shit elsewhere.
Nick/Viacom probs made licencing deals before that and whenever it comes time to renew it will probably be seen as ancient history and nick/Viacom will be looking to renew based off sells of this and other Nick up games.
If you guys thought some consequence would happen, you were naive. Just need to look at other examples on other industries.
Reinhard Pollice and some other dude. Two people.
Pretty much this. Just because folks like myself are saying "Fuck THQ" doesn't mean fuck anyone associated with them. It's clearly directed at the higher ups who participated in that AMA and also those who found out about it but refused to do any action towards it.I think it needs to be stated that the issues people have with THQ are largely not the bottom and middle ground parts of the company (as well as developers who had signed on with them, particularly smaller ones, prior to all this going down). It's specifically the Upper management who've refused to take action against the parties involved with the matter (specifically one person of note), which has lead to outcries against the company as the whole.
they're probably also gonna announce something simpsons related. they have a lot of games in the pipeline, they said something ridiculous like 80 projects in the works not so long ago.
Yes and no. If the company had held those people responsible then it would just be on them. When the leadership chose to do nothing, and issued a non-apology, then it reflects much worse on the company as a whole. Yes this isn't the fault of the devs down in the trenches, or those that signed publishing deals before all of this, but the issue went beyond one or two people and ultimately is laid at the feet of their executives.
A bit off-topic, but the mod message always says 'THQ Nordiq' instead of 'THQ Nordic', and my OCD gets activated every time I see it. Do with it whatever you want. Just wanted to notify you about it. :)[STAFF]Everyone is welcome to criticize THQ Nordiq for any past mistakes.

Of course, but I want to think anyone already knows this, unless they want to argue in bad faith.I think it needs to be stated that the issues people have with THQ are largely not the bottom and middle ground parts of the company (as well as developers who had signed on with them, particularly smaller ones, prior to all this going down).

People say f this or f that everyday and it’s normally not an issue, but as soon as it involves someone’s favorite company, we get the “it’s not fair to say fuck everyone, what about the nice old janitor?” hot takes.
