I'm handling E3 business but I thought that I'd take this time out to make the official thread for a really special game coming out June 2.
For the record, yes I just cropped banners and shit from Gamestop fliers. I CAN DO WHAT I WANT. The real important thing is this game is badass.
Let me get this out of the way:
Yes, the game is brown and red and has LOL BALD SPACE CHARACTER. It takes place on Mars you unbelievably stupid motherfucker. Go cut your own tongue out yo' mouth before you bring that shit to this thread.
RELEASE DATE AND PRE-ORDER BONUSES
A handbook guide (gamestop) vs. a golden hammer (amazon). I'd go with Amazon just because it makes GAF some money.
Also, release is AUGUST 25th for Windows users. And June 5th for Europe.
So basically in the year 2075, Earth Defense Force received a distress signal from the miners on Mars saying that they overthrew the Ultor Corporation after years of oppression and hard shit. Then EDF sets up camp to keep control, the miners think things are cool. They're not. Years down the line, the EDF is pretty much exactly like Ultor. Oppressin' shit. You're part of the rebellion to fuck their mars colony UP. And by fuck it up, I mean literally dismantle the establishment with a fucking hammer.
Here is the reason this game is so cool. Now, most titles which have destruction talk a lot of game, but are simply marketing gimmicks hiding behind the reality of ultra predictable prefabricated bullshit.
In Red Faction: Guerilla, when you hit shit it will break. Now I am not a master of physics but I know this. It breaks a lot more fucking realistically than any game I have ever played in my life.
Here is a video demonstrating said destruction.
I've had buildings collapse on me as I was destroying them "strategically", I've had pylons go flying and hit me from afar after a well played implosion. And that's just in the puny demos.
And the gameworld is HUUUUGE. It's one of them newfangled "open worlds" you hear about, only it's on Mars. And you can destroy every building and piece of architecture you see with a fucking ostrich. It's fucking rad.
Not content to have a buttload of singleplayer content, many good games today have a halfway decent multiplayer component. This one is far more than halfway decent.
What is better that shooting shit and destroying everything in sight? How about doing all that shit with JETPACKS, RHINOPACKS WHICH PLOW THROUGH BUILDINGS, CONCUSSION PACKS, FUCKING X-RAY VISION PACKS. There's packs for goddamn everything. It's all supremely well balanced by the fact that only so many players can have a particular pack at a time, and each pack has some limitation to their ability which forces one to use it strategically.
It is so addicting. The multiplayer demo has me playing more than any 360 game since L4D.
Here is a video demonstrating the fucktacular multiplayer component.
WHATCHA WAITIN' FOR?
Ok so I know next week is E3 and that's like some religious ceremony wherein all sheltered geeks gather in some ritualistic display of nerdly fortitude and as such you give up playing games like you're fasting or some shit in order to watch executives who hate you announce shit you don't want.
All for that BUZZ.
Well I say, E3 is cool but FUCKING BUY RED FACTION.
That is all.
