Don't forget about all the things you're supporting when you consider any THQ Nordic games.

Here's a helpful summary post of all the events for the uninitiated.

Mod statement: "To address a few recurring points: We will not be banning games published by THQ Nordic and subsidiaries like Deep Silver. You are instead welcome to continue raising the issue in threads relevant to the publisher and its games."

If you use Steam and want to ignore all games that THQ Nordic publishes, go to their publisher page while you're logged in, then click on the little gear icon below where it says "Beta" and choose "Ignore this creator."
_______________________________________________________________

These games are being published by THQ Nordic. For those who may not be aware or who may have forgotten, THQ Nordic had a marketing effort where it intended to gain attention using a website that is known primarily for its support of child pornography, as well as for support of Neo-Nazism, doxxing, and other extremely damaging behaviors.

THQ Nordic's provided no response to this fiasco except for an apology claiming they did not do enough research. As the website is unlisted by Google, they had spoken to the board owner about removing "nasty stuff", and content was viewable both before and during the campaign, this claim is beyond belief. The individuals responsible are known not to be rogue PR interns, but go up to THQ Nordic's board. THQ Nordic has not dealt with the individuals responsible, and they released an embarrassingly bad "apology" that addressed nothing.

Consider that by supporting their games, you are supporting a publisher that is complicit with child pornography.
We really need something like this for every EA and Activision thread too.

Im a little but surprised, it seemed like Gunfire was very set on being independent after what happened with the original THQ. I suppose it was a big bag of money that made them sell, and the ability to work on the Darksiders license.

Im not really happy about it, Its a bit shitty after the 8chan business, I dont think THQ Nordic did nearly enough to make ammends.

Bit strange they went with this before purchasing and self-hosting 8chan. How are they gonna inform their customer base about all they need to know about future games?

Did you know that up until now, Gunfire was an independent studio? They were!

While I'm kinda bummed theyre stuck with THQ now, I wonder what this means for Remnant's future with THQ now that they own the IP apparently.


Guess Darksiders 4 is still on the menu, though!

You'll dislocate your arm if you keep reaching that hard.
I'm pretty sure Nickelodeon (a children's network) would drop support with THQN if this was actually true. THQN is not complicit by holding an AMA on 8chan. If you hold an AMA on Reddit no one claims you support all the shitty reddit pages on there.

To be fair Nickelodeon didn't do anything about Dan Schneider when he was at his prime creating hit TV shows for them, so who really knows.

you’ll dislocate your arm if you keep reaching that hard. reddit and 8chan are not comparable. i’m not even going to mention all the context you’re conveniently leaving out.
