Mornin '13
Filed under: ACTIONTRIP

Good morning, everyone. Today I'm happy to announce that ActionTrip's ranks are finally going to be replenished with new writing talents, which include Anthony Severino - he founded PlayStationLifestyle and is also the Managing Editor over at GameRevolution. Anthony already posted a news story yesterday, so join us as we welcome Anthony to the AT crew (don't be jerks now, he's a good guy).

We expect to have additional writers as February kicks off and our buddy Vince Massa will be contributing regularly from now on.

Our goal is to increase the amount of content within the next few months, so expect news, articles and features to be posted more frequently.

Expanding the AT team is part of our effort to help improve the web site. At the end of the day, it's all for you guys, of course.

We thank each and everyone of you for sticking with us, especially those of you who have been following AT since its was founded (I know some of you are still lurking about, so thanks :)).

-AT Staff

Well goodbye THQ. Your assets are sold as follows-

Relic - purchased by Sega for $26 million
Volition - purchased by Koch Media for $22.3 million
Evolve (IP) - purchased by Take-Two for $11 million
Metro (IP) - purchased by Koch Media for $5.8 million
South Park (IP) - purchased by Ubisoft for $3.2 million
THQ Montreal - purchased by Ubisoft for $2.5 million
Homefront (IP) - purchased by Crytek for $500,000

Nobody wanted Virgil Games the makers of Darksiders so as of now the studio is closed.

Everything else will be given as collateral in there bankruptcy case to there creditors to sell and squabble over.

Oh and welcome new staff members. Just don't become like Kotaku or Escapistmagazine. You can't even read there webpages anymore.

Hmm maybe a new color theme would be good though.

Hey, that's great news! Congratulations! I've been here for ages, seen several major redesigns and stuff. Still the only gaming website worth visiting daily. But yeah, more content will be cool, just Vader complaining about shit is not enough! Anyways, hope the focus stays on PC games, we don't want too much Wiis and PS3s in here!
Vader [STAFF] Jan 24 2013, 04:03 am EST
Thanks for the kind words, dude :)
RenegadeCZ Jan 24 2013, 04:33 am EST
New staff? Cool. I hope we might get some OPTIMISTIC remarks with the daily news for a change, you know what I'm saying? ;)
And by the way I really like AT's dark color scheme. Bright colors hurt my eyes at night.
So yeah, welcome new guys. If you're reading this, fair enough, we need more people than just Vader to join the disctussions.

Where did you get the money to pay him? Aren't you living on scraps of bread and sewer water?
  Vader: Hah! Water.... luxury.

Morning. I'm glad to see new people.
Annihilator Jan 24 2013, 08:45 am EST
Welcome!! I'm looking forward to the New Blood in the current ranks. Should make for a nice mix of potentially volatile opinions. ;-)
Doomsday. Jan 24 2013, 10:28 am EST

Welcome new guy! We love boobs, shoot pigeons, do cock slapping parties and shove dildos up stardust's butthole!! :D

edit: Who got the rights for the WarHammer games?! Sega?
Whisky Jan 24 2013, 02:02 pm EST
New writers? Sounds like Vader is looking to delegate some chores...
KraGeRzR Jan 24 2013, 02:32 pm EST
Ahh, new blood comes forward to suckle at the teats of our corporate overlords...

Here's a friendly welcome cockslap for Anthony *SLAP*. Well, and maybe another one to be sure he feels right at home *SLAP*.
PigMaster Jan 24 2013, 03:52 pm EST

don't suck.
actually, this is my only source for gaming now, all the rest faded away...
it's the comics...
Capt.Fodder Jan 24 2013, 06:44 pm EST
