Red Faction: Origins movie stills need more Piranhaconda

Some movie stills from the upcoming SyFy movie Red Faction: Origins were posted over at Comic Book Movie and it looks deliciously SyFy-y. The movie that bridges the storylines of Red Faction: Guerrilla and Red Faction: Armage...

This is Red Faction: Armageddon's 'horde' mode
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Red Faction: Armageddon is skipping versus multiplayer this time around and going with co-op instead. The horde-like mode called Infestation will see up to four players fighting wave after wave of progressively harder aliens until everyone dies or they pass the 30th wave.

There are three different game types; one that sees you killing everything, another that sees you defending bases while killing everything and then a dark mode where there is no light source except for each player's flashlight. Weapons are unlocked as you progress through the waves and all the upgrades you earned in single-player are available in the co-op experience.

If you're a fan of the horde mode in games like Gears of War and Halo, then you'll enjoy Infestation. The only downside to the mode is that there's no scoring or rating system, so you can't really get that competitive in the experience. It's a fun diversion but I don't think it's enough to satisfy the competitive players out there, especially with the loss of versus.

Volition wanted to focus on the story the most this time around and they felt that this co-op mode would be the best complement to single-player. As Roje Smith, Associate Producer on Armageddon, told me though, Volition will factor in a proper versus multiplayer if there's enough fan feedback in the next game. That is if another Red Faction game is made, of course

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Red Faction: Guerrilla

Red Faction: Armageddon wants you, Descent fans

After watching Game Informer's recent documentary about Volition, I was all jazzed up about Descent. Descent! What more needs to be said? These feelings quickly changed into those of sadness, but all is well. GameTrailers ha...

Monsters & explosions: New Red Faction screens

If you were at PAX this weekend, you would have been able to play Volition's upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon. But let's assume that you were not. So here, have some screenshots that tell the whole story: lots of explosions, gross aliens, and screaming bald guys. If you were at PAX and you did have a chance to play Armageddon and its new "Ruin" mode, let us know what you thought.

Hands-on: Red Faction: Armageddon photo
Hands-on: Red Faction: Armageddon
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

One week later and I still can't stop thinking about Red Faction: Armageddon. Specifically, the new weapons are just awesome. The weapons like the Magnet gun are just perfect when combined with Red Faction's destruction engine.

Aside from the wonderful new weapons, I also got a taste of Armageddon's story, fought against the new alien creatures and got a feel for the new, structured linearity in missions.
