Red Faction: Armageddon gets farting unicorn power-up

Volition makes good on ridiculous demo-download promise

Here for your viewing delectation is Mr Toots. As promised a month ago, he is a unicorn whose sphincter shoots rainbows with the power to seemingly vaporize basically anything on Mars. If you've downloaded the demo %26ndash; and upwards of a million of you have %26ndash; you know that Red Faction: Armageddon contains a surfeit of amusing weapons, destructive tools whose gleeful ridiculousness rivals anything in the Ratchett and Clank series. In fact, %26ldquo;shooting a powerful beam of light which destroys things directly in front of you%26rdquo; would seem so mundane an ability as to invalidate such a weapon from the game's roster %26ndash; unless, of course, that beam happens to be a rainbow coursing from the hindquarters of a shrieking pygmy unicorn. In which case... well, it's very weird. But in a good way, right? Expect Mr. Toots to make his landing on June 7.
