Red Faction: Armageddon Features Rainbow-Farting Unicorn

Red Faction: Armageddon Features Rainbow-Farting Unicorn

Players can unlock Mr. Toots and wield the unicorn of laser-butt-death as a playable weapon in the sci-fi shooter.

Oh, how far we've come. Videogames have resorted to poop jokes before, but never has a game completed the trifecta of combining lasers, farts and unicorns in one delicious package. As a "reward" for one million fans downloading the demo to the latest sci-fi shooter Red Faction: Armageddon, the developer Volition offers Mr. Toots. You have to see it to believe it.

"After completing the single-player campaign, Mr. Toots will be rewarded as a playable weapon," a statement from THQ read. "Lift up his tail to break unicorn-wind upon your foes, instantly melting targets with devastating rainbows and happiness. Enemies will quake before your flatulent malevolence.

"Such is the power of Mr. Toots."

I'm not sure how a laser-farting unicorn fits in with Red Faction's backstory, but I guess Volition doesn't really care that much about verisimilitude.

Ah, who am I kidding? That Mr. Toots is adorable!

Here's a more complete introduction to the wonders of the Toots.

Already met Mr. Toots from freddiew's Youtube channel, but it's nice to see him again. Not that I'll be buying the game or anything, but still...

A few words, If I may?;
TASTE THE FREAKING RAINBOW!

Also, what happens when you drop 'Mr Toots' when you die? Does it fly into the sunset?

Can he fire a Sonic Rainboom?

Oh.... he can!

O_o

That is the face I made.

The anguished wailing look on Mr. Toots seems to indicate that passing a rainbow is a horrifically painful experience.

It is quite disturbing.

No.

This is far more appropriate.

ace_of_something:
I don't want to get hit with low content but

O_o

That is the face I made.

that all one can really say about this.

I...er...well... o_o how...ugh nevermind...

oh damn it, I'm saying it, how is this compatible with Red Faction's serious tone? I loved Guerilla and as far as I can remember, the story was pretty serious. I mean this sounds like something that should be unlocked in say Saints Row if anywhere.

Another reason Volition games are the best games. I can't wait to play this game.

Cutest
Death
EVER!

It's not meant to fit in with Red Faction's serious tone. That's the whole point.

Freddie Wong, anyone?

Though funny and ridiculous i have to say that this shouldn't be content in red faction, i could see this in say COD for multiplayer cause again COD is a commercial game that could accept this as Mr. Toots seems to be all about the commercialism. no doubt about it.

and one more reason for me to burn down SYFY studios.

ugh...whats with the stupid video game streak?

You don't get it until you beat the game, so it's for a second playthru.

Guerilla had the Ostrich Hammer multiplayer unlock.

That expression on its face will haunt my nightmares.

I think perhaps the most hilarious thing is that in both of those videos, the first thing you see is 'MATURE'.

Well, damn. That's a surprise. Not only is that the most bizarre and completely awesome weapon I have ever seen in a video game, but now I know what freddiew was doing when he showed this video a little while ago.

I'll just leave that there, for I believe it is relevant to the News Story.

It all makes sense now. Glory to Mr. Toots!!

How randomlol this is. All it needs is moar bacon!!1 Really fits the zeitgeist. The zeitgeist can go eff itself, by the way.

Oh gawd.. It's Ensign Sue's Spunicorn!

Wait, this isnt news. YOu guys already reported on this.

Ok, I've never played any of the Red Faction games, nor have they ever held interest for me...

Until now!

I'd be more interested if it was a poptart cat instead of a unicorn.

In any case, it was amusing the first few times, but after seeing a full trailer of it, it got really creepy really fast.

You mean it actually fires a rainbow from its ass?

I thought that was just something the Freddie W crew had decided to do with it.

Never before has a game teaser left me so.... speechless.

+1 for being inventive and crazy

-10 for creepy unicorn face that will give nightmares to children for untold generations

Oh God it took me two minutes to get up off the floor I was laughing so hard....SOLD!

I've already been acquainted with Mr. Toots. I can't wait to start blasting bad guys with his rainbow farts.
