Goddamnit Volition, STOP MOCKING US

If you're the type of person who misses the days when flightsticks and throttles were not mere artifacts of nostalgia, you will be ENRAGED by developer Volition's latest trick, a cruel joke embedded in their Ostrich Hammer dev diary for Red Faction: Guerrilla.

See first if you can spot it:



Did you see it? THE MOCKING THEY LAID UPON THEIR EARLIEST FANS, A TEASE THAT I NEARLY THOUGHT WAS TRUE?

If you didn't, set your gaze the whiteboard behind art director Blane Whiteside and technical animator Will Hess, and SEE THE EXTENT OF VOLITION'S CRUELTY.

Yeah, that's right. Behind Blane's head, that text:



FS3 RELEASE DATE

OMG FREESPACE 3?!!

I nearly took the bait, so foolish was my hope!

But then, then...I read the other text on the board:

"Facts About Mars:
Red/Brown
Population: 0
GDP 10.00
Natural Resources: Rocks, Red Pigment"

Worse still:

"Possible Subtitles:
Guerrilla
ORANGUTAN"

Fuck you, Volition. Fuck. You.
