For those fortunate enough to be attending PAX East in Boston this week, THQ has a little treat: playable Red Faction: Armageddon, along with a new mode called "Ruin."

This score-based mode is all about breaking crap, much as you'd expect from a Red Faction title. The mode starts with players choosing weapons and then entering an arena where stuff will be broken into tiny bits. Successful chains of explosions will offer up bonus points, which you'll want to look out for in the game's "Challenge Mode," where you'll compare scores against your friends on the online leaderboards.

Sounds fun, and a bit like Red Faction: Guerrilla's "Wrecking Crew" mode. Basically, this is Volition giving you another excuse to f**k s**t up, and this is me not complaining.
