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...

Red Faction: Armageddon sees slight delay

Stomping in alien faces underneath the surface of Mars is going to have to wait. THQ has announced that it's delayed Red Faction: Armageddon. No huge deal, though, it's only by about a week -- the game will now ship on June 10 international...

Hands-on: Red Faction: Armageddon, round two

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Red Faction: Guerrilla

This latest installment of HAWP has got to be one of my all-time favorites. Long-time fans of Podtoid -- and Anthony, in general -- will appreciate the humor of this episode. As far as bits about terrorism go, this is probably one of his gr...

Red Faction: Armageddon wants you, Descent fans

After watching Game Informer's recent documentary about Volition, I was all jazzed up about Descent. Descent! What more needs to be said? These feelings quickly changed into those of sadness, but all is well. GameTrailers has put up a new ...

Go watch this hour-long documentary about Volition

Game Informer interviewed Mike Kulas, co-founder and president of Volition, and ended up with enough material to turn it into a fascinating documentary on one of the industry's darling studios. It covers the studio's history, the stories be...

Red Faction: Armageddon's cover art is falling apart

We tend not to post much about box art these days, but I'm willing to make an exception for a special case like Red Faction: Armageddon. Besides, it's been awfully quiet on the Red Faction front lately. Compared to the average current-gen g...
