Red Faction: coming to a cinema near you?

THQ planning Red Faction movie adaptation

THQ's popular destruction-based shooter series, Red Faction, may be receiving a movie adaptation. One of THQ's top names has stated that the company is planning to launch a feature film alongside the next game, which is scheduled to release before March 2011.

Even though the series has long been known for setting the player free in a world full of destructible environments, THQ is banking on the franchise's outer-space colonization story appealing to moviegoers. THQ core vice president Danny Bilson recently revealed that the company is hoping to start launching movies alongside its triple-A titles, with Red Faction cited as one of the first games to be incorporated into what Bilson calls THQ's "trans-media" strategy.

Promising an announcement on the strategy in the near future, Bilson described the strategy as one that has THQ pitching studios on films for the publisher's triple-A titles while the games are early in development. Earlier in the year, Darksiders creative director Joe Madureira told VG247 that THQ had met with other companies with the intent to turn the then-unreleased action game into a feature film.

Darksiders and Red Faction fans -- would you be interested in seeing THQ's two top original IPs turned into feature films?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
