THQ news started rolling in about trouble at Vigil. The new was backed by a tweet from Ben Cureton, combat designer on Darksiders. It simply read:
“Anyone looking for a designer? =)”
Later that day, Ben was able to expand on his thoughts via a post on NeoGAF.
A brief part of that post is as follow…
The seats are empty….
We’ve all been on edge for the past couple months… and more so, the last couple weeks. I mean, I’m sure you can imagine what it’s like to wonder if you will have a job tomorrow. Most of us here joked about it just to keep the mood light, but we all knew what could happen. Now I look around and I realize…it did happen.
…maybe you can imagine what it feels like when you read the list of who bought what only to discover your name is not on the list. Why? Did we do something wrong? Were we not good enough? Were we not worth ‘anything?’ Imagine that.
I can only say thank you to the fans of Vigil games. Your support means more than you can imagine. Your feedback (both positive and negative) gave us long-lasting insight that we will all take with us, wherever we may go. You are the reason we made Darksiders 1 & 2…and you are the reason we will continue to make games.
And with that… my seat is empty.

So, it’s way passed the end of the world… At least according to the Mayan calendar… And we are still here! But the upcoming releases of games such as Tomb Raider and The Last Of Us in 2013, raises a good question… What kind of survivor are YOU?!
Even recently with the release of The Walking Dead on XBLA and PSN, the games have been gearing toward the question of, ‘what kind of survivor are you?’ You get to choose different actions in The Walking Dead which alter the outcome of the game. Do you save the man or the woman? Do you save the child or yourself?
Tomb Raider promises to be one hell of a ride through the beloved Lara Croft character… It takes place before she becomes the rough & tumble woman of our virtual dreams and tells the story of why she became one bad ass woman! Are YOU that kind of survivor? One who keeps on going no matter what? One that will do ANYTHING to survive?
Game developer Naughty Dog is coming out with The Last Of Us, a game about surviving what seems to be a post apocalyptic earth, however the main character is taking care of a young girl, would you be so kind as to care for another during such a time? Other humans pillaging and stealing and doing what they need to for survival… Or would you be the one to take on the ‘kill or be killed’ motto and let it be every man for him or herself??
Either way, I’m just glad the world didn’t end and I can answer these questions about myself through the wonderful world of video games… But please, tell the CWG Team what kind of survivor are YOU?!
The Peeps At … TheNextWeb.com … Had This To Say:
The iOS and Android Messenger apps (which will be available later today) have been outfitted with a new option alongside the photo and camera buttons, offering a ‘Record’ toggle that can be pushed and held to record voice messages.
If you don’t like what you’ve recorded, slide it off to cancel the message or let go to send it.
While the voice messaging feature provides a new way of interacting with friends, Facebook has also said it will also begin the beta testing of a new VoIP calling feature within its iOS Messenger app, allowing users to establish a peer-to-peer connection and make calls without making a dent in their call allowance (although it will use existing data plans).
The only drawback is that voice calls (messages are available to all) will be available to Canadian users of the iOS Messenger app at launch.
To use the service, Canadian users will be able to log into their Messenger app, open a conversation with the person they want to call, hit the ‘i’ button in the top-right corner and selecting ‘Free Call.’ To send and receive calls, users will need to have the latest version of the app that is available today.
In recent months, Facebook has doubled-down on its messaging features, dropping requirements for users of its Android Messenger app to log in with a Facebook account. Allowing users to sign in with just their name and phone number made it a more attractive option to mobile owners who don’t want to use Facebook’s social networking features but need a reliable messaging service.
Soon after that, it launched Facebok Poke, a direct attempt at leveraging away users of the popular iOS app Snapchat, offering disposable messages and the opportunity to send photos and videos that are automatically destroyed after a user-specified amount of time.
Facebook Messenger will now serve as a call and voicemail system that potentially reaches 1 billion users. It doesn’t matter if it’s not all that innovative, the service will be extremely useful to many millions of users around the world — that’s if Facebook’s tests are successful and it is opened to users in more markets.
And the possibilities seem interesting, to say the least. The ability to update the service with premium services could mean additional revenue. Think Skype’s internet phone numbers, call forwarding and other ‘upgrades’. This could be a nice additional stream of revenue for the service if it proves successful.
