The next destructive iteration of the Red Faction Franchise is set to hit store shelves on May 31st, for the PS3, 360, and PC. You play as Darius Mason, grandson of Alec Mason, 50 years later, under the surface of Mars, since the end of RF: Guerrilla. Mars’ surface has become uninhabitable and forcing the habitants into underground mines. The Geo-Mod 2.0 engine is back and instead of tackling just buildings, you can destroy underground caves, alien structures, and other assortment of objects. This time around, though, you can repair what you destroy with the new Nano-Forge’s repair ability adding new scenarios never thought possible. Can I destroy my way to May 31st? I know…lame but the game looks to be far from.

Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
