The company that used to publish the blockbuster Company of Heroes and Metro franchises imploded in rapid and spectacular fashion in late 2012, getting its assets sold off in early 2013 . Some of its holdings, like the WWE and Saints Row games, found homes. But the fate of other members of the former THQ family tree -- Devil's Third, spearheaded by former Team Ninja leader Tomonobu Itagaki, for one -- is still ambiguous. Danny Bilson, who ran the cores games division of THQ, is talking a bit about the games that got screwed up or orphaned in the company's last few years.


Red Faction: Guerrilla featured the Ostrich Hammer, which was pretty out there weapon and, if I may offer my own opinion, a beautiful thing. Now, as a reward for consumers downloading the Red Faction Armageddon trailer, Volition is giving the phrase 'double rainbow' a whole new meaning with Mr Toots - a weapon in the shape of a unicorn that literally reigns destruction and chaos by farting rainbows.


Ten years ago the original Red Faction gave PlayStation 2, PC and Mac gamers their first taste of the future of humanity on Mars. Developer Volition explains how the three games before led up to next month's Red Faction: Armageddon.


Red Faction: Guerilla, you suspect, was an open world game purely as a result of the design limitations of destruction. It's difficult to create a more focused, story driven experience when you're only a single misdirected rocket away from destroying a crucial part of the level design. Yeah... that bridge you blew up when you got a little excited - you sorta needed to drive over that, not eviscerate it. For Red Faction: Armageddon, however, Volition has come up with a functional solution that's as simple as it is seamless.
