THQ Nordic's recent announcement that Red Faction was removed from Germany's index of "damaging" games now makes a lot more sense. According to the European ratings group PEGI, the 2001 original will be releasing on PS4 via Sony's PS2 Class...   read

Red Faction: Guerrilla is the best open-world game ever and if you disagree you are wrong

Most sandbox games treat their open worlds like pornographic films treat story. Despite the fact that games like Assassin’s Creed or Grand Theft Auto bill themselves as sandbox experiences, the actual open-world ...   read

Red Faction Guerrilla ditches Games for Windows Live for Steam

It's a good time to get back into Red Faction Guerrilla. The game's destruction tech holds up well and, now that Games for Windows Live has been pushed aside to make room for Steamworks support for multiplayer (which is shockingly fun), pla...   read

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on September 2.  A...   read

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

$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...   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

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 ...   read

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...   read

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
