RF Armageddon: demo out May 3

RF Armageddon: demo out May 3

THQ's announced that a playable demo of Red Faction: Armageddon will be available on Xbox Live and PSN on May 3. The game is still set for release in North America on May 31, and on June 3 worldwide, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

For the first time players will assume the role of Darius Mason and fight their way through Martian sewers and an oncoming alien infestation. Meanwhile, Darius must clear his name as the colonists have blamed him for unleashing the alien threat that has ravaged the underground cities of Mars.

Players will have at their disposal the Nano Forge as they combat alien invaders with concussive blasts and core-shattering tremblers. Rebuild all that you destroy with the Nano Forge’s incredible Reconstruction ability. Finally, throw entire buildings at your enemies with Red Faction’s signature weapon, the Magnet Gun.

To our PC players, unfortunately, we will not be providing a demo for that platform.

No PC demo, eh? Will buy when it's 5 bucks on steam.
Commented on 2011-04-27 02:12:02
Why this goes from a potential buy to will buy when its $5 on steam?

because of no demo?

Im seriously curious, something more like I wait for impressions and reviews, but to just "no demo = when its $5 on steam"

Because impressions and reviews aren't always accurate, especially with PC versions.

If we don't have a legal option to try before we buy, then why risk it?

This should help me with my decision

As said before: again no PC demo. Is it that hard or expensive to release a pc demo?

game doesn't look as fun as the first...guess I will pick it up for a low price or during a steam sale

Bah PC needs the demo more than consoles. I hope this isn't sign of shitty PC port.

About the game

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (49 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it not having a Quadro gpu limits its professional 3D software use. (49 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as i say, i'm a 3D guy too. (50 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the entry model is a bit short on ram, having the top gtx980m gpu is probably overkill for most use, especially if your working in the adobe package. (50 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog mainly though, as a 2D and 3D artist, a workstation is just better. i take power and functionality over style personally. but it's worked for apple, maybe MS have a success on their hands (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as for price. i wouldn't want the touch, it's not worth the added cost. and it's 3000 for entry level. realistically any self respecting artist would be getting the 4200 version. (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: the dial looks quite impractical to me. but then i like having the cintiq remote on my lap. i don't like the arm strain associated with on-screen buttons in that situation. (55 minutes ago)
