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?

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
