    First the Titan Quest Expansion, and now this? I’m glad to see these guys come out of no where and start doing stuff.

    Looking back, THQ was one of my favorite publishers who published some of my favorite childhood games, such as Destroy all Humans, Alter Echo, and the Spongebob games (Battle for Bikini Bottom for example). I’ve also found love for other titles such as Legend of Kay, and Titan’s Quest as well, along with some of their more modern titles. Really, I think THQ Nordic is getting to be one of the better Publishing companies. I wonder why the original THQ went bankrupt to begin with. The fact that they are not only brought back some of their old, popular games to modern systems and PC (Destroy all humans, Legend of Kay, and just recently Sphinx and the cursed Mummy), and have now made a modern Expansion to a PC action-RPG made in 2006. They are definitely looking good in my eyes.
