Homeworld is saved! Many companies bid on it, but the Borderlands creators paid the price to preserve our beloved Homeworld series.

I haven't enjoyed any of the space RTS games that have come out since the Homeworld series. Hopefully Gearbox will do right by the series. I'm especially glad that Stardock lost out on the bidding. I loved Stardock's desktop utilities back in the Windows XP days, but their games have been a bit of a disappointment.

As for the rest of THQ's lineup, it seems Nordic Games picked up just about everything else. Including my beloved Worms series. I'm not sure I'm fine with that. Looking at their published games on Steam I can't find one that I've even had the remotest interest in playing. Hopefully they'll license them out to others. I need more Worms.
