Red Faction: Armageddon is the latest in THQ's long-running sci-fi shooter series, and to create the most realistic animations possible, the company partnered with Pendulum Studios. In this trailer, you get to see how the in-game action compares with raw video footage. Also, you'll see actual marker-based facial motion capture being conducted (no, those actors don't have measles). The side-by-side shots are very striking, one thing is sure: motion capture actors are an athletic bunch. I have to go take a nap now, and all I did was post the video.
