News Comments > New DungeonDOOM XP for DOOM 3
1. Anyone? Sep 22, 2005, 00:36 Ludomancer
Anyone played this? Sounds interesting, and looks interesting except for the use of retail content (would like to see more custom content).

I don't want to install Steam on my PC, so I hope they have alternative methods of distribution. Steam is making it so piracy is a more favorable method of acquiring games like this, and that's not right.

It sounds like these guys made the decision to revisit and improve on their game. That's definitely not in EA's usual plans, so I could see how it might split them, but more power to Castaway for taking time to better their product. That's not something you see many developers doing lately.

I didn't think it was official, but my point was mainly that it's much better than the usual official BS.

Now THAT'S my kind of press release. No marketting BS, just good ol' bad english that get's straight to the point.
I'd buy this game just because they didn't go with "Amazing Special Effects! State of the art Physics simulation! Event Driven Story!!!" route...

Isn't it a good possiblity, considering the extent this guy goes to to shame the game industry already, that he was behind those death threats to himself in the first place?

It would only reinforce his case that gamers were violent psychopathic killers if they threatened his life.

This is a good thing. Now hopefully they can take the rest of the series where it should have been in the first place, which is a solid single-player sequel/finale to the other games.

There was way too much emphasis on story and continuation to cut that series off...

3. Re: Two words: Hip Games Apr 21, 2005, 00:28 Ludomancer
I recall hearing about this like... 5 years ago or more! I was really interested in it, but it completely disappeared. Once I read this headline I was pretty interested again. That is until:
" A unique subject matter: play the role of a Hollywood-style thief..."
" Break into and out of movie-like locations..."
" Vast array of interesting characters set to a mature background story..."

I guess that means "it's just like a move!", and mature usually equals "tits and ass". (yeah, real mature).

Well I was interested up until that.

Fuck you.

The fact that people actually buy this shit is what freaks me out even more. If they do buy it, that is.

This isn't just limited to pre-order customers. You can sign up and join in if you have been a part of the beta before they started preorders.

I love people who take chances in the industry and strive for something new.
That being said, these guys in particular have succeeded by being "ambitious", promptly disappointing upon release, and then cashing in on the hype and credit for taking chances afterwards. I can't think of a lion head game that was really well done since... erm. Well I can think of a few old Psygnosis ones that were done by Molyneux that pleased, but that's about it.

"...and we are making it exclusively to our long time C&C fans."

Does that mean since I'm not a fan I shouldn't have read this?


Oh crap.

"What is the standard age group for people purchasing video games? 12-19 by far!"

That is incorrect. The majority of the gaming community is in their mid-20's to 30's.

"...we went and added third-person melee so we could have the fun of making a game with two completely different styles of play..."

Then is there a way to keep the game from auto-switching to 3rd during melee combat? That's so annoying it's not even funny, and I can't find an option for it anywhere.

Now you just need to get the damn game to run at a steady minimum of at least 20fps on my P33Ghz w/X800 - c'mon!

Wow. What a retarded and see-through premise for a game. The devlopers of this shameless piece of trash should be completely ashamed. Obviously I'm not their core audience, having intelligence enough to spot this turd's attempt to cash in on popular stupidity a mile away, but I hope buyers of this fine piece of entertainment wake up to their houses collapsing on top of them in the middle of the night. It would take care of two problems at once...

Because 3D Realms is currently hiring artists who have experience making high-poly models for normal mapped objects and characters. Check it out:

Wow. Just... wow. I will play the crap out of this game when it comes out just to see... I MUST see what they could possibly create with development time like this. Wow.

I dont know if they'll actually drop co-op, though I know what you mean because I get really sick of hearing developers cancel co-op aspects of their games. Co-op can make even bad games fun.
These guys pretty much announced this title with that as the primary basis though, and they're filling a much needed gap in the market right now as well. I can't wait to go adventuring with some friends in this title, but we'll see. So far the screens are a mixed bag, but if the game world is interesting, and play is fun, then we've got a winner. Hopefully they keep it up. At least it could become a cult hit that makes them enough money for a sequel, because these guys did Wizards and Warriors too and that was a great, albeit less-than-well-known RPG.
