THQ Buried Red Faction

Based on sales reports, the leader of THQ Brian Farrell said that the sale of this franchise is very disappointing. "We are disappointed with this Q1 earnings," said Farrell. "Proceeds from sales of Red Faction: Armageddon and another really below our expectations, the late Personal Trainer UFC release also affects the value report. After Red Faction in two series. This last did not get a huge market, then we decided not to continue the series. "

Red Faction: Armageddon is a 2011 third-person shooter video game developed by Volition, Inc. and published by THQ. It is the fourth installment in the Red Faction series, and was released for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and OnLive in various countries around the world between June 7 and June 10, 2011. 

You play as Darius Mason, who were tricked by the nefarious cultist/terrorist Adam Hale into unleashing an alien scourge on the unsuspecting populace of Mars, and now it's up to you to save them. There are some other bits to it - Hale has also blown up the Terraformer, forcing everyone into tunnels underground - but they're lost in a sea of mediocre cutscenes and unpleasant characters. While not offensively bad, the story exists mostly as a vessel to justify your back-talking supersoldier's genocide. Volition, however, considered it important enough to liberally place cutscenes throughout the game which are, thankfully, skippable. Additionally, they've released an accompanying film, Red Faction: Origins, which supposedly bridges the story between the previous title and Armageddon, but it's easy to follow the plotline ofArmageddon even if you've never played the previous games. Overall, the story is on par with the rest of the genre, which isn't saying much, but it does a serviceable job of setting up the action.

Nevertheless, Farrell still has high hopes on games that are soon to be released at the end of the year This, of whom Saint's Row: The Third, WWE '12, and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
