Reasons To Be A Volition Fanboy: Part MCMVIII

There are many reasons you should love Volition Inc – the Red Faction series, Saints Row 2, Freespace 2 and Jim Boone all spring to mind. But there’s one constant among all of their games and that’s a sense of fun.

While Volition titles do take themselves seriously enough (well, apart from SR2), there’s always an underlying feeling that someone, somewhere is taking the piss. Red Faction: Guerrilla was a perfect example of this with the Ostrich Hammer; the final online unlock that was, literally, an ostrich hammer. How could Volition equal – or top – this? Simple, it seems. Mr Toots.

Go and watch the video here. Then come back here so we can share the giggles.

I actually spoke to NAMEDROP Jim Boone /NAMEDROP earlier this year, and put it to him that one of the reasons I had such time for Volition games was the sense of fun pervading all of them. He acknowledged what I had always known – they’re a company that make things to be fun, rather than for any reasons backed up by pretension, desire for profit or to show off.

They’re the kind of company that gives players a tiny unicorn that shits rainbow lasers as a weapon. This is why I think it’s not only fair, but right that I am a massive Volition fanboy.
