News comes to gamers today via the LA Times that famed director Guillermo del Toro has partnered with THQ, publishers of Metro 2033, Red Faction: Guerilla, lots of wrestling games, and more. Murmurs of Del Toro's interest in game development have been floating around since last week, when he revealed that he would be working with a "big" publisher on several games. Now that we know that company to be THQ, who can guess what the Pan's Labyrinth and Blade 2 director will be working on? Hit the jump to keep reading. Read More

Red Faction: Origins to Debut on Syfy in March 2011

Dinocroc vs. Supergator. Mega Snake. Sharktopus. Syfy has always brought us the very best in science fiction, and now they're lending their expertise to THQ in order to bring Red Faction to the small screen. That's right, THQ formally announced today their "transmedia strategic alliance" with Syfy to debut a two-hour live-action pilot for Red Faction: Origins in March 2011. According to the press release, Red Faction: Origins takes place twenty-five years after the events of Red Faction: Guerilla and centers around Alec Mason's son, Jake, a ranger in the Red Faction Militia. Origins will serve as a prequel to Red Faction: Armageddon, the videogame follow-up to Guerilla that's also scheduled for release in March 2011. The screenplay for the Red Faction: Origins pilot was written by Andrew Kreisberg and is based on a story by Paul DeMeo, director of Fiction Development at THQ. Kreisberg has worked on such shows as Warehouse 13, Fringe, and Vampire Diaries, so he clearly knows a thing or two about sci-fi storytelling. Read More

Red Faction TV Movie Airs March 2011

THQ and Syfy have released the first details of the previously-announced Red Faction prequel movie, created through a licensing agreement between the publisher and Syfy parent company Viacom. The movie, entitled "Red Faction: Origins", will bridge the gap between the last game release, Red Faction: Guerilla, and the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon. The film is set to air in March 2011, the same month as Armageddon, and will focus on Red Faction hero Alec Mason's son Jake as he organizes a resistance movement against the titular organization, joined by his sister. With a live-action film being used, essentially, as a marketing tool for a video game, this could be seen as a way to showcase how far gaming as a medium has come. However, this could go even further than that - as a way to make gaming movies actually successful. Read More

Red Faction Follow-up in March 2011 Goes Old School (Kind Of)

Red Faction: Guerilla seemed to universally impress those that got around to playing it after its release this past summer. Unfortunately (for THQ), that group was much smaller than they had anticipated and the game was considered less-than-successful commercially. Good fortune has found those craving a sequel. THQ's Executive VP of Core Games Danny Bilson confirmed a follow-up is in the works in an interview with Joystiq during GDC 2010. The new game will be a drastic change from Guerilla and will actually hearken back to the first two entries in the series "because about 80% of it is underground," Bilson was quoted as saying. Many fans will remember that the series actually started as a first-person shooter where players burrowed (in a sense) through walls in a more linear series of mine shafts. The gameplay was revolutionary at the time. It will be interesting to see how developers meld the open-world mentality of Guerilla with the lack of openness that is usually a consequence of going underground. Read more after the break.

Darksiders Lengthy Demo Goes Live

As Kombo reported last week, THQ has released its epic 90-minute long demo of Darksiders this morning on Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network. The extended demo will allow players to venture into the game's first dungeon, the Twilight Cathedral, and will highlight the game's combat, exploration and puzzle-solving elements. Darksiders, which is penned by legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira, launched in January and shipped 1.2. million units worldwide. Since its release, the game has seen favorable scores, earning a Metacritic rating of 83 for the Xbox 360 and 82 for the PlayStation 3. When the game launched, it contained a mystery code which was later revealed as a golden ticket for a free copy of Red Faction: Guerilla. Preorders were assured a mystery code, but you may get lucky by picking up a retail copy today with one of the codes. Read More

2nd Red Faction: Guerilla DLC Breaks Down Walls

Destruction. Mayhem. This is what Red Faction: Guerilla is all about. Let's forget the poor attempt at a sci-fi storyline, or the emphasis on open-world/sandbox immersion . . . at the end of the day, Guerilla is all about taking your futuristic miner's pickaxe and smashing apart Martian architecture, then watching it collapse in a beautiful disaster. Starting today, THQ and Volition are expanding Red Faction: Guerilla's multiplayer destructability with a new multiplayer DLC pack, which is available on Xbox Live for 560 Microsoft FunBucks and on the PlayStation Network for $6.99. They've added two new destructive modes, "Bagman" and "Team Bagman," which are based on game modes from Red Faction 2. Long story short: Whoever holds the bag for the longest wins, and earns extra points for cappin' enemies in their brainpan while in possession of said bag. In addition to this retro-tacular game mode, THQ and Volition have also included 8 new maps that can be experienced on any multiplayer mode except "Siege." I had the pleasure of getting hooked on Red Faction: Guerilla's multiplayer after playing a handful of rounds with Game Informer's Phil Kollar, and let me tell you: Any excuse to strap on a Tribes-inspired backpack and wreak havoc in Red Faction: Guerilla multiplayer is worthwhile. And since the final Guerilla DLC pack is set to drop in October, now seems as good a time as any to procure this multiplayer add-on. Read More

Red Faction Hits One Million Sold

THQ is reporting today that their open-world smash fest, Red Faction: Guerilla, has sold over a million copies since its release at the beginning of June. This is pleasant news. Red Faction is the perfect example of an underdog game. It had very little hype surrounding its release. For one, Red Faction isn't the most recognizable or reputable name in the industry. Sure, the first two Red Factions weren't bad but they weren't very commercially successful either. Additionally, the game came out during E3, causing news of its release to be largely overshadowed. It seems like a million copies is that golden land of sales figures that automatically green lights a sequel. I expect that announcement sometime in the future. A bit of a side note: this figure of a million sold is obviously only counting the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. The PC version is coming out in September and should help out the sales figures quite a bit. Read More

Red Faction: Guerrilla Demo Open to Preorders Through GameStop

Remember the original Red Faction games? Yeah, they were fun for what they were, but nothing too spectacular. Perhaps I'm a bit of an optimist, but I feel like the upcoming Red Faction: Guerrilla could be promising. However, the wait until the game is actually released is a bit of a long one; we won't see it until June. GameStop is working to remedy this, offering an early demo opportunity to anyone who preorders the game. Leave it to GameStop to come up with such an innovative idea! Kidding, of course. Read More
