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.
