The Steam sale is notorious for taking all our money. It's very hard to survive one of their sales without caving and buying something. Now, the Humble Store is offering similarly amazing deals, plus you will be giving to a good cause. How can you resist?

While you’re busy sitting contemplating just how badly Gearbox might destroy Homeworld, take a moment to consider the rest of THQ’s library of properties – including Darksiders and Red Faction - most of which have ended up in the hands of Nordic Games. Wait…who?

Much like explosive diarrhoea, there happens to be bits of THQ everywhere now. The company is dead, and it’s various games and license have been scattered to the winds of other gaming studios and publishers. Well, most of them anyway. THQ still has a few properties left that no one wanted the first time that they had an auction, so they’re going to be trying once again to kick them out the door one more time.

The Red Faction series, known for its terra-formation and destruction of the red planet, Mars, has always been pretty good – but it’s never quite reached being great. And it never will, as THQ has confirmed its abandoned the franchise.

You know what, there has been some comment recently about the jinx that I seem to have against games that I hype up. Well that is why I love Red Faction so much.

I never hyped Red Faction at all and it’s a terrible game, it was hyped by others and has been a complete and utter failure. So it’s not just me.

Anyway this week Yahtzee gives us some insight into his past and what made him such a cynical reviewer, and it’s mighty funny as well.

Eurogamer has posted up some comparison screenshots taken from the recent Red Faction demo.

Now we obviously need to see more before we can make a real decision on this one but for now I will openly say that the Xbox 360 screens are looking better in virtually every way.

The fire looks more realistic in the 360 version and the shear amount of assets in the 360 screens eclipse the PS3’s ones.

But don’t take my word for it, hover over the screenshots above and below and then head on over to Eurogamer to view the rest.
