Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

THQ: "We have NOT canceled Christmas 2014"

Posted on Monday, January 16 @ 08:58:48 PST by Keri_Honea

The games press/media/blogging community always wants to jump on a story or a possible story as soon as a few controversial words hit the Internet. Sometimes these news stories are in factnews, but other times, they are complete fabrications. THQ suffered from this over the weekend.

IGDA Mobile SIG chair Kevin Dent tweeted that THQ was in such financial dire that the company was canceling its entire 2014 lineup, includingWarhammer 40k: Dark Millenium Online.

THQ has promptly squashed this rumor by giving VG247 the following statement:
THQ has not canceled its 2014 line-up, and has not made any decisions regarding the planned MMO.


You can't get much clearer than that.

The THQ reps further explained that they were withdrawing from their "kids's boxed games sector" due to poor performances of past kids games, especiallyuDraw.

Considering that Saints Row the Third andWarhammer 40K: Space Marineboth did very well, it makes sense for THQ to focus on hardcore games like these and move away from games that did not keep them in the black as much as they liked.

However, I hope such hardcore games include anotherWarhammer 40game that isn't a MMO. The MMO sounds cool, but I'd like a game that either continues Captain Titus' story or focuses on the Space Wolves faction of the order.
