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...

$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...

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...

Unicorns for all in Red Faction: Armageddon

With Red Faction: Armageddon out next Tuesday, I was starting to worry about our collective initiative to download the game's demo one million times. The prize is more than worth it. THQ says Mr. Toots will be unlocked upon completion of t...

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 ...

1M Red Faction demo downloads will unlock a unicorn

Wow, way to pull a fast one on us there. I was certain that the rainbow-farting unicorn stunt was for Saints Row 3. As it turns out, it's related to Red Faction: Armageddon. The more you think about it, the more it begins to seem like a na...

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...
