I just had a nerdgasm.

All I now need is a sequel to JTF. That, too, was one brilliant game.

Haha, yes - JTF was fun. A bit cheesy, but fun. Adding co-op was the best move they ever could have made for that game and is the main reason why it gets played through over and over again.

But yeah, I'm so happy to hear this news.

Was looking for some representative screenies of the current builds but had a hard time finding the real deal. Any help? Still have copies of FS1 and 2 lying around in my 'hall of fame' PC CD collection.

Thanks ^^
Screenies can very from build to build, mostly because stuff is being added, updated, fixed and so on all the time.

But here's some good inplay vids:

http://youtu.be/e0xL1fA09nA
They're both based on the 3.10 medaivp build, so they're about a year out of date, maybe a bit more. Regardless it's worth it, by and far so much worth it to download. Oh and the gameplay? Very smooth. As long as your card properly supports OGL. Yep, they did one hell of a implementation of OGL to get it done.

Ha, try this one on for size - much newer:

Interplay...haven't heard from them in a decade or so. Maybe a Free Space HD remake is next...
Already done:

And still being updated to this day - very much worth playing.

Now, Freespace 3, on the other hand....

Parias, the gripe was the yellow outline you see on doors and ladder and other 'interactive' objects. They made this an option now in the menu of the game.

Ahhh, that's what I was thinking of. Thanks.

Third person perspective only comes on when you hit the 'cover' button.

That's not entirely accurate. The game also switches to third-person when you climb ladders, perform melee take-downs and engage in dialogue. To be fair, the original DX did the latter as well.

Good catch, I had forgotten about those. I am curious in particular how the melee take-downs mechanic will be received at large.

Third person perspective only comes on when you hit the 'cover' button. Developers made it clear in the past that they were aware of possible concerns on this and players have the option of just not hitting the cover button if they don't want to - they're being super-careful about how fans react to things. There was some feature or quirk a lot of people were freaking out about a short time ago that they made a last-minute change on after enough demand came in - can't recall for the life of me what it was, but did show they're paying attention.

But don't take my word for it - try out the leaked beta already and see for yourself, it's done a pretty terrific job of selling the game so far (ironically).

Edit: And yeah, playing through the beta, one thing that kept flashing up in my mind too was that the whole MGS-style radar system was, undoubtedly, going to be slammed with tons of controversy - I'm not sure how I feel about it myself. I'm just thankful the rest of the game is solid-looking enough that I don't think I'm really too worried either way.

Yea I missed Anachronox myself, though I followed it's development quite a lot. I think after the disaster of Daikatana I gave up on everything from that company lol.

Not everything I hope - don't forget where Deus Ex came from.

I got a chance to check out Ghost Recon Online while at E3. All I can say is stay away from this utter crap of a game. Its nothing but run around and kill each other. No story at all. The Graphics were very bland and dated.

Uhh... not that I disagree, nor would I even consider purchasing this game... but WTF else are you supposed to do in a shooter?

Dude, l34Rn 2 r33d, he said "no story at all" so obviously he wants to at least have a pseudo-purpose for the running around and killing each other part. Besides, since this is Ghost Recon we are talking about here and not Serious Sam, it does seem like a reasonable expectation. The GR games did have pretty decent story-telling mechanics for a shooter series.


Exactly - and it's not like a decent plot-driven mechanic is utterly and completely unprecedented in the FPS genre. I enjoyed Serious Sam on it's own merits for example, but I got a hell of a lot more pleasure out of playing, say, Half-Life 2 for all the effort they put into the plot-advancing scripted sequences and back-story.

Similarly I'm expecting // hoping the new Ghost Recon release will have at least something of an interesting storyline to it.

So long as it's got full campaign co-op like the others, I'm down.

I've been pretty skeptical about the game as well, having been burned by Invisible War in the past. That said, after playing through the beta that's been floating around, I immediately jumped on and placed my pre-order. And these days I otherwise don't really pre-order anything, especially if it's a singleplayer game. The leaked build worked just as well as (if not better than) any official demo and resolved a ton of my concerns. There's a few points I know will hit with some controversy, but it's blatantly obvious these guys are steering as far away from the problem points Invisible War tripped all over as possible.

When this game comes out, I shall pick it up and enjoy it immensely. Of this I am sure - as sure as I was for, say, the Half-Life or Portal releases.

I hope these are interesting, story-driven maps and not just run-around-and-kill-things horde-style levels.

Actually I was kinda hoping co-op would be integrated into the main campaign ala Operation: Flashpoint Red River, but we'll see how this goes.

They really don't - Crusader: No Remorse was one of my all-time favorites back in the day. Hell I even still listen to the soundtrack on my way to work.

Anybody remember Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising? Was technically supposed to be a spiritual sequel to Carrier Command, but kind of tapered off into a more linear storyline-oriented path... Dr. Who did a great job narrating things though and it had some pretty cool voice work.

I'm feeling nostalgic enough I think I'll play through it again to help offset the time until this comes out. Can't wait.

To be honest I'm not all that worried about the graphics or linearity - I'm basically considering this to be a medieval Army of Two. From what I've been hearing the co-op in this is supposed to be pretty awesome and hilarious, so the release of this will definitely make for some fantastic LAN gaming this weekend. Definitely looking forward to trying it out with a friend.

And yet STILL no option to enable unit animations in multiplayer? I'll continue to be disappointed until they fix that - we have a LAN party waiting on exactly this update.

What's wrong with there being a new space game? The genre is pretty neglected as it is, and these are one of the few developers still ballsy enough to make these kinds of titles.

Edit: Unless you were more referring to this just being another X game rather than something completely unique and abstract.

Yeah, the previous Anno game was a lot of fun - being a sci-fi nerd, I'd actually be a huge fan of seeing the same general gameplay and complexity in a futuristic setting. This could hold a lot of promise so long as they don't dumb it down too much.

Yeah, I'm not much of a competitive multiplayer gamer - I'm more interested in the singleplayer side of things here. I was hoping there'd be some sort of co-op mode like the original, but it sounds like there won't be.

(And yeah, bodging out co-op sessions over dial-up back in the day was awesome - brings back memories...)
