THQ auctioned off

Didn't see a thread on it, THQ is being auctioned off tomorrow and could go in one chunk or have individual assets tossed around.

That made me wonder what happened to the THQ owned Rainbow Studios, but a search showed me that they were closed back in August 2011. It seems all of my old hang outs end up closing. What's up with that?!

I remember Rainbow Studios back in the late 90s and early 2000s. They were based out of Arizona correct?

On the plus side my twitter stream has been flooded with posts trying to help those affected line up new positions. Just use #THQjobs if your looking or to share open positions you know about.
