Since the Red Faction: Armageddon demo was downloaded over a million times, Mr. Toots, the rainbow-farting unicorn originally dangled in front of us as a prize by Volition, will be in the final game. He'll be rewarded to players after they complete the single-player campaign.
It's all well and g...

Take on Red Faction: Armageddon. Take bugs on using the game's "Sketch Mode," showcased in a recently released trailer featuring A-ha's trademark song. It's almost as good as a rainbow farting unicorn ... almost.

Spore's "Creature Creator" let you build your own freak in advance of the release of the actual game.

A few months ago, THQ and OnLive partnered to give away free MicroConsole devices with pre-orders of Homefront. OnLive is launching another THQ promotion, and this one is arguably a better deal, because it doesn't include a copy of Homefront.

Perhaps you were just downloading the Red Faction: Armageddon demo because you like blowing crap up, but you're also helping to set free Mr. Toots, a rainbow-expelling unicorn that Volition will put in the full game if the demo is nabbed one million times. See him in action after the break.

The Xbox Live demo for Red Faction: Armageddon is now available and has everything you could want ... by which we mean "the only weapon you'll ever want:" the magnet gun. The weapon is anything but polarizing, as you might have noticed in our recent preview.

If you pay close attention to the new "History of Red Faction" video, you will receive an all-too-brief look at Red Faction: Armageddon's glorious magnet gun. Yeah, sure, you might also learn a little bit about the Mars-roving series but, come on, magnet gun.
