THQ CEO Brian Farrell has been chatting about the company’s games coming out, and he reiterated that attendees at E3 this year will get to have a look at both Red Faction 3 and Saint’s Row 3.

Speaking with IGN (via Joystiq), Farrell told the site that E3 was going to be full of wow moments for THQ.

“I think we’re going to blow people away at E3,” he said. “You’ll be seeing Saints Row 3. You’ll be seeing the next Red Faction. You’ll be seeing more of Homefront.

“We’ve been talking about it, but we’ll actually show some of our Warhammer 40k MMO, and I think people are going to go, ‘Oh my God. They’ve got their stuff together’, and Saints Row 3 will evidently cause some to remark, ‘This is not your father’s THQ.’

Didn’t know our father knew what  THQ was anyway, so that is banner right there.

Farrell also revealed that THQ learned its lesson with the Wii market, and will only be showing a few “brand extensions” for the system at E3.

This new look at Wii applies to former Wii-exclusive De Blob, which upon release sometime between 2011 and 2012, will be a multiplatform title.

” Actually, I prefer it on a normal controller,” Farrell said regarding De Blob.

Awesome stuff, there.
