IGN noticed that De Blob outsold Wario Land: Shake It by 80,000 copies, and both were released the same day. THQ, asked for comment, said there's more where that came from.
What they literally said, attributed to a THQ spokesman, was, "We're pleased with de Blob's performance worldwide. It's a great intellectual property and you can tell your readers to expect to see more of de Blob in the future."
It's a score for well made games and for the choice of making a new IP instead of a sequel. Although, the irony is, a sequel no longer makes de Blob new IP, so ... wait a minute ... that makes it a victory for sequels over new IP ... crap.
