Talking Red Faction and blowing s**t up with Volition

I can’t be the only one who, as a kid, liked to build things just to knock them down. Sure, the school therapist may have thought I had issues, but come on… knocking things down just feels good.

That seems to be part of what Volition was thinking with its upcoming PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title, Red Faction: Guerrilla. Set on Mars in an open world where just about everything you see is destructible, Red Faction: Guerrilla looks to bring the fun and excitement of leveling back into my life. 

At GDC last week, I had a chance to chat with the tallest man in gaming, Volition’s Luke Schneider. He tells me a bit about Red Faction: Guerrilla‘s destruction, and gives me a few tips on how to take out San Francisco’s Moscone Center with a few well-placed rockets. You know, if that’s something I wanted to do.
