    I think that Ubisoft and EA are the front runners for most of THQ's assets, specifically the WWE license for EA and Saint's Row for Ubisoft, although there will probably be a bidding war for that franchise. I think Darksiders, Homefront and any of their other ip's/licenses will go for very little, probably only garnering interest from one or two companies at most. Square Enix, Bethesda and Epic may also show interest in THQ's assets but I don't see Activision caring at all. It's not really their strategy to buy franchises like that these days. It would be ironic if Rockstar/Take-Two bought the Saint's Row series but I see them having just as little interest in THQ's assets as Activision. So atleast EA will have two of THQ's licenses(they already bought the UFC license from them earlier this year and I can't see anyone else wanting the WWE license to continue annualizing it other than EA). The real question will be who pays the most to get Saint's Row.

    EA already tried for two GTA clones, The Godfather series and The Saboteur, so I'd think they'd be interested in acquiring a Saints Row.

    I don't know how long it's going to be until anyone gets anything from THQ though, as Clearlake Capital Group has already purchased THQ and all of its assets for $60 million. THQ may remain independent of any other major publishers and just work for this company instead of being sold off piece by piece.

    Also. Ubisoft and quality? Do you use Crystal Meth?
    You're truly an idiot. Yes Rayman Origins is Fantastic so is the AC series and Farcry 3. Rayman Legends looks amazing and loved the demo.

    THQ's Clearlake Capital deal fell through because of investors and now they're auctioning off titles one by one. I don't think that they can auction off WWE since it's really not their property, but whether they can or can't, I hope EA gets WWE and Saints Row. Don't care about the other THQ titles.
