Top ten best THQ games: Remembering a giant

When assessing a publisher's impact on the industry, we tend to focus on the highs rather than consistency. THQ was anything but consistent, putting out Nintendo DS shovelware, rushed licensed games, and taking part in one of the absolute w...   read

Review: Red Faction: Armageddon

There are few things more satisfying than planting explosive charges around the base of a massive structure and then stepping back a safe distance, before detonating them. The resulting chaos -- the crumbling of steel and concrete, bathed i...   read

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...   read
