Red Faction Guerrilla ditches Games for Windows Live for Steam

It's a good time to get back into Red Faction Guerrilla. The game's destruction tech holds up well and, now that Games for Windows Live has been pushed aside to make room for Steamworks support for multiplayer (which is shockingly fun), pla...

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on September 2.  A...

$25 gets you the THQ Collection on Steam

After the recent Humble THQ Bundle, I don't know how useful this deal will be, but the sheer absurdity of it all warrants a special mention. As part of the 2012 holiday Steam sale, there's a $24.99 collection which includes most of the...

 
THQ bundle earns big
Despite proving controversial, THQ's "Humble Bundle" has raked in $3.3 million since it launched last Thursday, as over 580,000 customers take the chance to snap up games for as little as $1.00. According to GI.biz, share pri...   read

Unicorns for all in Red Faction: Armageddon

Take on Red Faction: Armageddon's Sketch mode

Between the unicorn weapon in Red Faction: Armageddon and now this Sketch mode, I'm starting to wonder. Is there something in the water at the offices of Volition? THQ says Sketch is just one of the unlockable visual modes, so there's the ...

Trailer delves into Red Faction: Armageddon's story

Volition walks us through the history of Red Faction

At least, that's what this video is supposed to be. While Volition does talk about the individual Red Faction games, it's nothing substantial. This ends up being more of a commercial for Red Faction: Armageddon than anything else, which is...

Red Faction: Armageddon sees slight delay

Stomping in alien faces underneath the surface of Mars is going to have to wait. THQ has announced that it's delayed Red Faction: Armageddon. No huge deal, though, it's only by about a week -- the game will now ship on June 10 international...

I was pretty much on the fence the last time I played Red Faction: Armageddon. My tune has all but changed with my latest playthrough, as I got to experience a lot more that the game has to offer. Plus, the new build was quite a bit more polished, especially in the visuals department. It's not entirely perfect, but all in all, I'm happier with what to expect come next month.   read
