I met Paul and Lyndall from THQ on Saturday and we chat about their upcoming titles – WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2009; Red Faction Guerilla and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand.
On Smackdown vs RAW 2009, we talked about some of the nice additions in this year’s instalment – hot tags, co-op action, and create-a –finisher option. The booth showcasing the game was forever packed with people playing the game and watching the action. I threw in a fan question (on why Undertaker’s entrance theme is not as accurate as the rest) just for the sake of being cheeky (sorry Paul and Lyndall!).
On Red Faction Guerilla, Paul shared about the game’s objectives, mechanics and more importantly the release date – 14 Feb 2009. It’s okay if you have not arranged anything for Valentine’s Day next year, book a date with this game first. You can get a hands on preview of the game at X08..
Red Faction Guerilla plays a little like Saints Row2, another THQ title which I’ve recently completed the story missions, except for the Ultor’s. Saints Row2 scores on its robust character customisation features, full-coop capability for the whole story, and intense multiplayer game modes.
