Red Faction: Guerrilla Steam Edition info

Red Faction: Guerrilla guys.  RF:G.  OMG, that game.  It was the best demo I’ve ever played, and it was probably one of my three favorite games from last generation. The singleplayer was fantastic, and the Wrecking Crew couch co-op mode was such a family-wide hit at my house that even my dad, who is in his 60’s and stopped gaming in the 70’s, played it on the holidays.

Such was the power of Red Faction: Guerrilla‘s procedural destruction engine.  If you have never played it, that’s bad and you should feel bad.  Furthermore, you no longer have any excuse since Nordic Games has just announced the release of the Red Faction: Guerrilla Steam Edition.  

Find it right here. (protip: for a very limited time, it’s on sale for $2.99)
