Exclamation Red Faction 3 Under Development!

Destructible environments anyone ?
Quote:
THQ released its financial results for the Q1 2008, revealing lower revenue ($104 million compared to $138 mill. last year), but less net loss ($9.3 million, compared last year's $12.1 mill.). Sales were mainly driven by Ratatouille, and older titles such as WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2007 and Cars. In the subsequent conference call, CEO Brian Farrell confirmed it is developing Red Faction 3.

Oh I loved Red Faction. Never played Red Faction 2. Heard it was pretty crap. I'm hoping number 3 is a solid FPS. The first had a great Total Recall style Mars atmosphere and some really satisfying weapons.

Hey anyone remember that old vid that had the guys from Summoner playing D&D with one of the guards from Red Faction? I love that clip.

Same here, heres hoping it's like an updated RF 1. MP was a blast... blowing holes in walls to escape rocked.

I'd rather have a Freespace 3, but that's not going to happen, especially now that he that shall not be named* has the rights to it.

*If that's too cryptic, think Battlecruiser 3000AD. I dare not risk naming him, lest he Google his name and flame us!

Seriously from a guy who only played Red Faction.. last year, there was only one outstanding thing about it and that was the greenhouse tech demo level where you could blow a deep hole in the floor with rockets, fall into it, and have no possible way to get back out again without committing suicide. If ever a game needed a grappling hook, this is it.

The first Red Faction was... decent at best. The only awesome thing it really had going for it was Geomod, which unfortunately was totally underutilized throughout the game. It was playable though, and mostly enjoyable on the first run through, but I never could make it through another run.

Red faction 2 was just ass.

Hopefully this one will be the best in the series, and with the power inside current console and computer hardware there's no reason why they can't use Geomod to its full potential. I want to see it deeply integrated in the level design and not just have it there because it looks cool and because you may occasionally be able to blast a few holes through a wall and bypass a small section of the map.

LOL. Does he really have the right to Freespace?

Actually, he may not, according to Wikipedia. The entry says he was interested, and I remember a flame war breaking out between him and the FS2 mod community (in which Mr. Smartass threaten to sue the modders...).

With any luck, he doesn't have the license.
