Destroy all humans 2 is great, it hasn't moved onto the new consoles which is also great as i cannot afford any of them.
Publisher produces a variety of attention-grabbing dioramas to promote its latest round of games.
LOS ANGELES--If nothing else, THQ's Electronic Entertainment Expo booth is eye-catching. Coming from the front of the South Hall, visitors are greeted by a pair of life-size anthropomorphic vehicles from the Pixar film Cars, behind which stands a bank of playable demos for the publisher's game adaptation of the film.
Beyond the cars is a theater disguised as a bombed-out shell of a building. Inside, THQ reps are screening a trailer of the company's next-gen first-person shooter Frontlines: Fuel of War. The other side of the building is built up to look like a massive dual-barreled battleship cannon to help hype the PC real-time strategy game Supreme Commander.
Next to that centerpiece for the booth is a Destroy All Humans! 2 display. It features a burned-out double-decker bus on one side and a destroyed building on the other. Perched on the building rooftop is the game's alien antihero, Crypto 187, poised to shoot passersby with his ray gun. Spanning both sides of the structure is a UFO with a beam of light stretching to the show floor.
There was a small museum of WWE memorabilia in glass cases to promote THQ's upcoming multiplatform grappler SmackDown! vs. Raw 2007. Visitors couldn't get their hands on a playable version of the game (it was shown only on a video screen). However, they could get close looks at small pieces of wrestling history, including a Louis Vuitton-designed Rey Mysterio outfit, the Iron Sheik's headdress, and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine's trunks.
Check out the photo gallery for a closer look at the THQ booth, and check back throughout the show for hands-on impressions from the publisher's lineup.
I am really impressed with THQ and their pipeline of games. Titans quest is great and Frontline looks like what Battlefield 2:Modern Combat should have been.
Why wouldn't they make destroy all humans 2 a next gen game? It probably won't be upward compatible with the 360 either. Don't they want to make money? Upconvert the code like everyone else, but sell it for $39.99! I'm available for hire if you guys need some more "intelligent" direction.
SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 will be awesome... and Destroy All Humans! 2 and Saint's Row shouldn't be too bad either.
Nice stuff Destroy All Humans 2 will be fun just wish it was on the PS3 and 360 over the Xbox and PS2.
Let's please not ignore the fact that the majority of THQ's releases have been utter garbage. I'm hoping have addressed some of the shortcomings that prevented Destroy All Humans! from being the kickass game it should have been, and that they've gotten it right with the sequel. We shall see....
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
