Yeah they seem like a great bunch. From all their GB spots, they are always having a ball and obviously enjoy making their games. Hell even Tim Schafer has shown up for GB QL's and seems like a totally down to Earth kinda guy, just slightly mental that's all
GB? GB QL?

Also, if you want to see more of Tim, there's always those extensive documentaries going on for their new adventure game.

GB = Giantbomb
QL = Quicklook from Giantbomb

They are like Capcom where they avoided Street Fighter 3 for years. It'll come soon though I'm sure. If not Gabe might not like all the angry internet citizens spamming his Twitter! OMG

I posted about internet game issues with the game, and two guys from Double Fine (at 10 PM at night no less) were happy to post and try to help out. Including the god-like Brad Muir who I have much man-love for (if you've seen him on any of his Giantbomb appearances you know why lol). Needless to say it's pretty nice of them to be doing that. But then again 10 PM here is only 7 PM where they are, even so that's past work hours for normal folks

They do seem like a nice bunch of folks, and I hope the game does well for them.

You do know this game has been in development for like, a long time right? Before SOE snagged it up 2 or 3 months ago, it was known as Hedone Online and was in closed beta (which I was in btw) for quite awhile. Also, depending on who you believe and what you want to believe, it was also Parabellum previously also.

Ughm might be the same models and whatnot, but not the same games.. I played both of those in beta and its not them. Parabellum was a lot better game IMO too, just was no point to it.

Its common to share engines and models etc and build off that... I believe APB was originally the Scarface landscape, sure seemed like it to me in early beta, could see the coastline etc... But assumers can be wrong so dont quote me

Well Hedone and Bullet Run are the same game, that much is true. If you played Hedone you certainly know that

This looks pretty dumb.

Unless you actually played the game, I don't see how you can honestly say something like that and not expect to be called out on it.

Looks like it was built on the Quake2 engine.

I wasn't aware UE3 engine visuals were that dated. I guess I was wrong?

It would depend on the artists, would it not?

Anyway, that looks nothing like Quake 2. Or even Quake 3. Maybe Doom 3.

Of course it would highly depend on the artists creating the in game assets. I think we can all agree even an old ass engine like the Quake 1 engine, with the right tweaks and assets can look amazing even by todays standards (ie: Nexiuz the original, Xonotic etc). That being said, you'd have to be pretty color blind or even worse to think Bullet Run looks like a Quake 2 engine game

The Half Elf wrote on Jul 15, 2012, 17:49:
I still have the New Mutants (or maybe early X-Force) comics where he was introduced, and I sure as hell don't remember him being some sorta spaz-iod retard? Then again I quit collecting comics shortly after that, did I miss something in the last 20 years?

If I remember correctly he was introduced in the X-Force comic as a villain. He became popular, and was made into an anti-hero character. I still feel he's only popular now because he "breaks" the fourth wall while the other characters in the comic have no idea what's going on. It does make for some good humor sometimes, but I think Deadpool is seriously overrated.

I mean sure they fleshed him out aka Weapon XI program, has the accelerated healing ability, super human strength and agility (though the strength part has been glossed over recently if I recall) etc. But he's just a wise ass version of Wolverine if you ask me, without the chip on his shoulder or the bad assery that Wolverine has.

The thing that sets the game apart, is that you can create your own levels and then share them with everyone. Of course, I believe that ability is behind the paywall (I think, don't quote me on that) as you have to pay their coin version or whatever to be able to share a map you make. I think anyone can go and make a map, but only those who pay can either save it, or share it.

Either way, it's a fun little game. I don't know what anyone was expecting with it, but it was more or less a Minecraft clone with an actual FPS involved. The devs listened and added a lot of stuff in the launch version, hell they added turrets!

Thanks for that insightful comment and expanding on it as well. I am impressed with the description you gave.

I can expand on it.......Ubisoft. Soon to be a.k.a. Poopysoft.

As a PC gamer I should hate Ubisoft pretty much without exception. But I could careless about DRM. I'm not a pirate, my internet connection never goes out, and I like quite a few Ubisoft titles. On the other hand, I do have to defend the fact that always on DRM stinks for some.

Still, I wouldn't go so far as to call them Poopysoft

Maybe KindacrappyDRMsoft?

Wow, I've totally forgotten about this game. Does anyone play this?
I remember playing the beta or something, was fun if I remember, but I think BFBC2 was out at the time and also http://battlefield.play4free.com/ is better.

Anyway for free to play games, I'm totally hooked on Tribes Ascend, good old T2 (ish) action.

Wow, somehow I completely missed the BF 4 free launch. Is it any good?

It was a decent couple day distraction. It only had like 1 or 2 maps when I last played so...got old very fast.

It has 9 or 10 maps now I believe. Most if not all the BF2 maps are in, and a couple new maps as well I think.

BFP4F is literally BF2 but a F2P version. They even added a server browser to the game now (and there are quite a few players). As with Heroes, you can win permanent weapons and what have you with their card system when you log in each 12 or 24 hours.

There's quite a few people playing this still. They have a TON of maps (though to be honest most of them are just night time versions of the same maps etc), I think 22 maps in total now? You get this claw thing whenever you log in, and you can win permanent weapons doing that (I've won a couple this way).

It's certainly a fun little time diversion imo.

DX3 was excellent!

Is this new IP a DX9 game or is it using newer DX11 features?

It was running on PC, using DX11 features for the E3 demo etc.

I'm loving LoG, awesome throw back to the olden Dungeon Crawlers of yesteryear but with a nice new coat of paint on top.

Also, what exactly was the big deal with Sword & Sworcery? I played it for 10 or 15 mins and was just bored to tears and didn't enjoy it one iota?

It certainly looks great, and it has come a long way over the months that I've been watching it.

I'm also watching (and playing now yay!) Auto Club Revolution. Which has blown me away with the quality on offer. Project Cars has that same look to me, though I don't know how it plays. I'm assuming it's a tad more hardcore than ACR (or other style racing games).
