No more Red Faction

The Red Faction franchise will be no more.  Due to poor sales over the last two versions of the game, THQ “do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way”.  Ouch.

Despite the game’s poor sales, net sales were up year-over-year in THQ’s fiscal Q1 (which ended June 30), from $149.4 million to $195.2 million.

Red Faction: Armageddon | Demo out May 3 **UPDATE**

A “free playable demo” [like I’m willing to pay for one] of Red Faction: Armageddon will be available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE on May 3.

**UPDATE**

The demo is still due to arrive as scheduled, but THQ has announced that the game itself has been delayed [didn’t see that coming did you?] by a week.  It will now arrive June 7 instead of May 31.

Red Faction: Armageddon it on May 31 **UPDATE**

The sequel to the ‘destroy-just-about-everything-you-see’ third person action game, Red Faction Guerrilla, has a release date of May 31, 2011.

**UPDATE**

The UK release date is June 3.

RF: Armageddon takes place 50 years after RF: Guerrilla, where you play the grandson of Alec Mason (lead from RF: Guerrilla), Darius Mason.  The gameplay in RF: Armageddon is moving you more towards close quarters combat, but it will still feature highly destructible environments.

Red Faction: Guerilla – Review (PS3)

By PsiCoNaut

Overview

Massive Destruction, in a large open world, 3rd person environment, is what this game is about. Having all manmade items in the game been fully destructible, makes it rather enjoyable, and all this in wonderful 1080 resolution (or at least a resolution higher than 720). The story is a fairly simple one, set in the year 2125, you, as Alec Mason, takes a trip to Mars to meet up with your brother. After the initial tutorial, the Earth Defence Force (EDF, which are the bad dudes) finds out that your brother is a Red Faction member. With which they decide to enforce their discovery by executing him. Alone, your brother gone, revenge flowing through your blood, the only friends you can turn too are the Red Faction. So it’s time to go ‘guerrilla’ (which is far worse than ape).
