I really hope someone takes up Red Faction. Someone who won't hold that terrible Armageddon game against it, and takes the series back in the right direction.

Hey... I already own "Frontlines: Fuel of War" - should I tell them to give me my property?!!

Seriously... is there a chance that any of these titles will disappear from the marketplace? There's a few titles I've considered buying (just one copy, not the entire licensed set)! :-p

I hope someone finally gets Darksiders, deserves a sequel. de Blob wasn't a bad little game, quite fun for a bit of messing round. And please someone do a Costume Quest sequel, I loved everything about it

Rest of all other games in this list of article. I don't care if being rescue or not. As long as I mention which franchises is "RESCUE AND ALIVE" that I want to see them back. :):)

I don't even want Darksiders to be saved unless a good studio buys it. I'd rather have no more Darksiders games instead of bad Darksiders games.

THQ owned the Summoner games? I'd nearly forgot about them, they were great.

I hope whoever gets those makes a new one.

Also I'd obviously like to see more Darksiders and Red Faction.

The most interesting property by far is Homeworld, a unique space RTS series with great design, music and storytelling. Now there's a franchise that needs reviving, even though it's probably not suited for consoles.

Red Faction: Guerrilla, still the most fun multiplayer i have ever played. If only they kept with the "geomod" technology too. They completely got rid of what was best about those games.

I'd be glad to see Red Faction, Darksiders, Double Fine's titles, and maybe de Blob rescued. uDraw needs to stay dead, given that's what killed THQ.

I really do hope someone picks up the Homeworld franchise. It was probably my favorite RTS growing up. We're definitely overdue for a new one. Darksiders and Red Faction too. Those are franchises that deserve to survive.

If Microsoft is smart they would be looking at homefront and darksiders with a keen eye. A couple more decent exclusives wouldn't be a bad thing

Would love to see a next gen Destroy All Humans, developed by a solid and devoted team. Absolutely loved the first two when they came out. Would be cool to see one using unreal 4 and frostbite 2.0.

@29 That's not Homefront. Crytek, who had been working on Homefront 2 for THQ, bought the Homefront IP last month. Homeworld 1 and 2 are RTS on the PC. I would definitely love to see MS pick up Darksiders though.

Red Faction 1 + 2 on the original consoles were awesome.

Full Spectrum Warrior is pretty solid and has potential to be expanded in the right hands.

Worms is just completely delightful and MUST be saved.

don't see much else..

It's funny to see how many many ppl want Darksiders to be rescued. Do to the lack of sale of Darksiders 2.
Though i really really hope it will be saved, but again like #7 said, i rather see no, new Darksider game than a bad and messed up version of the series with a new developer.

Darksiders and Red Faction deserve a buyer there great series how everything else is complete garabage.

I mean I didn't know they made that much MX games specially when they've always been garbage. Destroy All Humans is a perfect example of milking a franchise to complete death, who even wants it know after the last one?

I really hope someone will keep Darksiders and Red Faction alive. The first Darksiders was good, but the 2nd one was even better. As for Red Faction, Armageddon was okay, but it just doesn't have the same magic as Guerrilla.
