Check out all of the cut-price THQ content available from now until December 17th on the Xbox Live Marketplace, below:

I just hope THQ survives. I don't want an hegemony of EA and Activision. And most of all... I WANT MORE QUALITY WAR40K GAMES ! Space Marine and the Dawn of War series are amazing. Give 'em a try guys, they're cheap ! :D

@14 it's 1600 MSP and it only covers an armor set and two additional questlines. It doesn't really seem worth it to me.

METRO 2033 is being given away for free if you're on PC.

From Eurogamer's article:
"All you have to do is like the Metro Facebook page. Once done, reveal the Steam code, load up the app and download the free copy of the game for Windows PC. The offer runs to 16th December 2012."

Get cracking.

there was a humble bundle deal on a bunch of THQ games (for PC via Steam), its ended now but you could have gotten saints row 3, metro 2033, warhammer 40k dawn of war, titan quest, red faction armagedon, darksiders, and company of heroes...for around $5.70/£3.50...or you could forfeit warhammer, saints row and titan to get the rest for $1.00
@2 becouse of the above deal $5,097,907.84 was made, although its not clear how much went to THQ, Humble, or charity (you get to choose how much of your money goes to each place, so you could have payed £5 and gave all of it to charity and none to THQ or Humble) but I reckon they must have made quite a bit from that sale.

Are they trying to sucker people in on ST: TT? You can get all of that for cheaper in the Full Package version... :/

@#7 - fodbod is a CoD troll. He mentions something about CoD in every thread he posts.

I'm sure he's well aware when he's off-topic.

Already beat the shit out of Saints The Third but I gotta say 800msp for the season pass is a steal.

Isn't next week the Serious Sam sale? I hope so.

Oh, not this again. Everyone with a sense of reason knows that Ric Flair is undisputibly the greatest professional wrestler of all-time. The man carried the NWA for a decade and WCW right up until it's end, except for his brief stint with the WWF. The WWE absolutely ruined his character and by the time he got to TNA, he lost his heart. But in his prime he was the Muhammad Ali of wrestling. I don't even know why we're debating this, tbh. o_O

Yep, just brought Darksiders 2 for £11 from Shopto the same as #41. Does the Season Pass add extra achievements or anything? Might have to get it at that price if it does add extra.

I also hope THQ can make it through.

Darksiders, Saints Row, Metro - all great games. Really try them if you havent already.

But most importantly, Warhammer 40k! These games are serious quality, with one of the most developed, rich, and deep universes in all of fantasy/science fiction.

I really hope THQ survives.

For everybody thumbing me down, there was a first comment by a guy named "over something". Look at the first comment you see. It says #2. I remember a comment similar to mine which got 62 negative votes, because this community can't look at the comment number.

@ 16 its not worth it at all. When the season pass was first talked about it was sapose to give you 3 pieces of armor and cover 3 dlc. But that was to good to be truejust like the game its self. And none of the dlc is worth the cash at all. 5 mins on hard and its over and all it is for the 1st dlc os run around 3 doors and probly 300 dudes to kill with a rocket gun and then fight a easy ass dragon and its over. Im a huge darksiders fan but ds2 was a let down
