It looks like THQ Nordic are reviving another THQ franchise for PS4 as Gamestop listings appear for Red Faction: Guerrilla on PS4 and Xbox One.
Oh my god ! That game was my favorite and it’s also show the destruction environment before Crackdown 3 was a thing.
This game had amazing destruction and it was a great game, but this has nothing to do with Crackdown 3. No one claimed Crackdown 3 invented destruction, ever heard of Battlefield? Plenty of other games have it. What Crackdown 3 is supposedly innovating in (at least in their tech demos) is open world destruction down to minute details calculated by the cloud...also with multiplayer.
Yes, I know that. But Red Faction Guerrilla is also Open World game with destruction environment.
it's easy for people just to throw anything negative and aim it at MS for some reason. Even if it has zero context here.
@Neonridr But MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first. And I find that MS is getting way too cocky.
Great news! This game had the most satisfying destruction mechanics I have ever experienced. I hope they upgrade it even further with the remaster!
Well, destruction has always been one of the main features of the red faction series, even back in 2001 with the 1st game.
I think first Red faction (and second) had a good destruction
Man I had lots of fun back in the day, tunneling to an objective. XD
And mercenaries before that. I really don't see your point.
@UCOFRCE "@Neonridr But MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first. And I find that MS is getting way too cocky." No they didn't. Do you ever stop lying? When did MS say they were the first to create destruction? And teh scale in which Crackdown is doing destruction vs Red Faction- dont compare. Its embarrassing. I'll bookmark this thread though so you and your alts can have a read when crackdown is out and you're served crow
I think you are confusing in-engine destruction vs. cloud destruction. What MS claims Crackdown 3 is doing is not the same as this game. You are just looking at things crumbling and assuming it's the same thing. Cloud computation is actually innovative if true. It means you can have multiple instances of very detailed destruction in different areas of an open map, without multiplayer players interacting with it (unlike Red faction which is single player only). "MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first" They did not say they created destructible environments. You don't seem to know what you are talking about. What Red faction achieved is incredible but the difference with Crackdown 3 is only that there is a lot MORE destruction in a seamless multiplayer environment. We don't know if the actual game will succeed in doing this but I'm explaining their claims.
YES! Will it have the multiplayer? me and my friends used to play FFA on quarantine all the time. So much fun.
Really enjoyed this game, hope it has a modest price point.
OMG hell yes.
"Red Faction Guerrilla Remaster", meh How about a remake for a changed with better graphics and physics.
Yeah, a remake that makes use of the improved hardware would be alot better. The game was fun, but iduno if i'll buy it again if it's just a slight graphical upgrade.
I agree. This looks more like a quick cash grab to me. Most of the re-mastered games that came out recently anyways.
Remember this gen has worse CPUs than last gen. Better physics might not be possible.
PS4 CPU is comparable considering the amount of optimization that was needed for the Cell, and 360 CPU handled it just fine, so you're saying the 360 CPU is still better than the APU CPU in the PS4? Also, GPU computes physics..
I think Physics done on the gpu these days. It's a technique mark cerny discussed when ps4 was announced. Ubisoft did a huge presentation about it.
@Rare: I was wondering about that after my comment actually. But if the GPU is expected to pump out higher graphic fidelity how much room will be left for physics? @Eidolon: If the PS3 and 360 CPUs are roughly equivalent to the PS4 Xbone CPUs how the hell is it going to pump out better physics and better graphics at the same time? The GPUs in the current gen consoles aren't beasts by any measure. There's a reason we haven't seen better physics and AI in current gen consoles as opposed to last gen; CPUs. APUs extra efficiency isn't enough to make up for the lack of power.
But the GPUs can now handle general processing, while in the gen7 consoles couldn't. I'm pretty sure PS4/XB1 can handle a remake with much better physics, the CPUs ARE better and and easier to optimize, but the Cell if fully optimized might actually do some pretty good physics, but that level of optimization never happen for physics(used for graphics or extra power mostly ignored), and GPGPU already blows it out of the water.
@Eidolon: I get the GPUs can process physics but if the PS4 GPU is being used for improved graphics and resolution, than it won't have a lot of room for physics. And if the CPU in the PS4 is roughly the same as the PS3 CPU where is the extra computing coming from?
Bro, the PS4 would only need to use 1/10 of it's optimized GPU FLOPS to handle the max a fully optmized PS3 Cell broadband engine could handle. The Jaguar CPU, however, is a bit weaker as far as FLOPs, but it is leagues better for general processing, including AI, especially since devs hardly took advantage of the the SPEs to it's full potential.
Essentially all they are doing is upping the res and implementing the PC's ultra settings ... $40 for our 9 year old game, please.
Loved this game so much.
i could never finish it it has so many side/main quests it scared me LOL anytime i played i was just running around doing crazy stuff. I think THQ Nordic are taking the let's see what the reaction approach to some of the IP's they bought when THQ closed first they tested it with darksiders 1-2 remaster and now we are getting a 3rd game in the series I hope they bring back saints row but more like it was with saints row 1-2. After that the series just went nuts and lost a lot of it's appeal. SR 1-2 were perfect mixture of crazy with serious tone. If they were to remaster SR1-2 i would buy them
I'm actually glad they are though, because a lot of stuff I missed out on last gen. One of the few unknown games "The Raven Remastered" (aka The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief) is another getting the remastered treatment. Need to try Darksiders, like you just mentioned.
DS2 is awesome while DS1 was good. If you like god of war, zelda and diablo you will like DS2. It has combat like GOW, dungeons like zelda and loot like diablo. It could have been a much much better game but the developers just made few decisions that didn't help the game and how is the raven? never heard of it
THQ Nordic doesn't owned Saint Row so they can't remake SR1-2. Deep Silver is going to let the franchise die off.
oh sorry didn't know that i thought it was the same publisher thank you
Oh, I never actually played Raven yet. I missed out on a lot of (digital only) titles during the PS3/360/Wii era. That is why I was happy to see it given another chance on current-gen. And thanks, got Darksiders set to my "Buy soon" list.
Never played the original so looking forward to this
Haven't played this game before. Sounds like something I'd enjoy going off peoples comments here
Just bought this on Steam not that long ago. Fun game
I'd rather have Armageddon. Felt more like the classic Red Faction games to me. Albeit in third person but so was Guerilla.
This had some of the BEST destruction physics I ever seen in a video game. This is a Day 1 buy for me.
I never finished this game on PS3. It might be worth buying this game again.
Who asked for this? Seriously, this game wasn't ever that big that it needs a remaster.
Yeah, seems a bit random.
THQ Nordic are testing to see, if people are still interested in the franchise. They conducted the test with Darksiders 1-2 which now they are working on Darksiders 3.
Why bother. Wasn't that good to begin with.
No PC? That's odd.
😍 Thank you so much THQ Nordic
wow, one of the worst game in the history of games, i hope this is bullshit
Come on, guerilla but not 2? 2 is one of my favorite multiplayer shooters of all time. Having online multiplayer on it would be incredible
the multiplayer was fun
Glad to hear this. This game didn't get the credit it deserves. I hope someone actually does a sequel that does this game justice.
Armageddon kicked the crap out of Guerilla. Armageddon was so good it was addictive but Guerilla was a snooze fest.
This is the "remaster" generation , add a few new art assets, up the frame rate...maybe....and lift the resolution, sell for full price...rinse , repeat.... creativity is dead or crushed underneath the big corporate push for higher dividends....
If this is true than that is awesome. Hopefully it will lead to a sequel, because the ones that followed this game weren't as great as this one.
Prepare for the Siege.
fun destruction but from what I could remember the world felt dead. I'll keep my eyes on this though.
I love this game I play it on psnow atm as well as (fallout new vegas red dead redemption just to name a few) hope its a true remaster not a port la noire im looking at you smh
Very cool. Had a lot of fun with this game.
Im glad, this one is a fun sandbox.
Both this, and Armageddon, were fantastic titles. Was a little let down when the latter opted out of the open world, but, it also ended up being one of the tightest, most entertaining 3rd person shooters I had played. Guerrilla, in turn, was one of the most entertaining open world games I had played. Repetitious? Sure. But going in, and wrecking the enemy's everything, time and again, was just so entertaining. It really did feel like you were making resistance power plays throughout the entire experience.
You're the first person besides myself that I've witnessed praising Armageddon since it came out all those years ago. I think the destroy and rebuild mechanic was very fun and addictive. I also enjoyed the story and atmosphere as well. It was more like the first two games in that aspect which is why I was so surprised that it got shunned so much. Guerilla was nothing special and very boring to me.
