Sux they didn't go back to the Prince of Persia (2008) game, luv the cel-shading style from that game.

This.

I actually enjoyed this Prince of Persia more than any of the Sands of Time Trilogy and was super disappointed they never returned to it. Still pisses me off.

The code is still solid and he pushes coding to the edge. However, I have always said that ID lost their creative force when John Romero left (or was fired). If these meat bags ever lose their pride, I would love to see a reunion. This reminds me of what a lead singer in a Rock and Roll band once said. A reporter asked how is the band getting along now? The lead singer replied, "Like it or not, we have chemistry so we will have to work through our issues." Enough said...

He already had the idea in his head to leave and start a new company with Tom Hall, when he was asked to step down by Adrian, Kevin and Carmack. So he signed the resignation and said fuck you guys anyway. More or less.

Though I'm sure he tells everyone he quit to make Daikatana.

Read "Masters of Doom". It's a great book, well written, and gives you insight into the world of the id Software that once was. You know, the Innovative, Ground Breaking, Imaginitive id of the early 90's.

The fact of the matter is the two Johns are pretty much worthless without each other is what I gathered from reading the book. Carmack could design a great engine but it took Romero to bring it to life, and Romero brought the ideas to the table once Carmack decided what he wanted to do with the next engine. It worked well, and they ruined that system.

I beta tested this for a month or two.

It was okay. Nothing spectacular. Felt like Counter Strike Deathmatch as far as the weapons play. No objectives in what I got to play really.

I felt Blacklight Retribution was still better after testing it. But it's not terrible.

Sony should have put these guys on the Planetside 2 team instead of making a secondary F2PFPS.

The amazing thing about PS1, for me, was the social/team play aspect. The devs really tried to not only support squad-based team play, but larger outfits and whole armies, working together. So, this lone soldier Rambo-ing through explosions seems dishonest.

In PS1, I had some awesome fights where I was part of a a multi-outfit fighting force. Coordinating such a thing always proved difficult, so I'm hoping they have some creative solutions.

...and, they've already shown gameplay videos highlighting the graphics. Seems pretty dumb to make a cinematic like this when they have a perfectly good looking game you can actually play.

...and yes, those drop pods are one of the few things that are actually in the game from this video.

Of course the trailer is dishonest.

Thats your biggest complaint? Really?
What CG trailer for any game is ever honest. CG trailers are for "story" or to portray that "hero moment".

They already released a great in game footage trailer of Planetside 2 with the Terran Republic stomping out an NC base the way it should be.

As a long time Planetside player I in no way shape or form needed ANY trailer, in game or otherwise to tell me this game was going to be great, just from the level of participation by Higby, Trey and RadarX on the COMMUNITY RUN Planeteside Universe forums from the day they announced this game. It was obvious they were in this to make a great sequel to a game fans were still playing 9 years later and that they loved the original as much as the players.

From the gameplay shown at E3 and from other sources I already know this game is awesome. I don't need a goddamn CG trailer to tell me that.

I mean, maybe I should start a Kickstarter for a hundred million dollars, to buy the Monkey Island license. You never know!

Interesting that you would think this IP is worth 100,000,000 ...

Yeah, go for it, start it on Kickstart for 100,000,000 just for all of us to laugh at you, and to waste Kickerstarter's time of course.

*wooosh*

Given the history, I think it's an intentional trolling.


I pretty much just ignore anything deqer or CJ_Parker have to say at this point. I don't think they're trolling, I honestly think they're both just idiots.

As Tycho said. This game simply doesn't grasp my attention from what I can see they've already done.

I want the next Tie Fighter, Freespace or Freelancer (I'm aware this was not a true space sim, but I loved it reguardless) sequel. Nothing less will suffice for me.

Then you're going to be incredibly disappointed. One is made by a company that hasn't put out a good IP in years (and is also obsessed with only paying attention to pre-episode 4 movies), one is stuck in IP hell divided among multiple defunct companies, and one is owned by Microsoft and probably isn't going anywhere any time soon.

Without *any* interest at all in the genre there will be no resurgance. So you're sort of killing off your own self-interet.

And for the record, I don't need those old IPs to be happy. A serious space sim will be good enough.

Also, I've found that Penny Arcade's taste in video games boarders on atrocious. A ringing endorsement from them basically puts a game off of my radar unless it's one of those genre-crossing games that is just awesome to everyone.

Otherwise, I find that they tend to revel in the OCD/Aspergers Syndrome games that are more neurosis itches than actual games. So their weight with me on gaming is about zero.

A. My post had nothing to do with Penny Arcade. At most I look at their comics and ignore everything else on the site. The person I mentioned is named TYCHOCelchuu and was the second comment in this thread.

B. I in no way meant it had to specifically be a sequel to one of those actual IP's. I meant in more of a spiritual successor type of manner. And Skyjacker is just not close enough to any of those to be a spiritual successor. Sorry. Not throwing my money at it.

Huh, not gonna lie. I thought this game looked like it could be fun. I've always been a fan of Itagaki's shit. DOA Was by far my favorite fighting game, and I loved the hardcore Ninja Gaiden games for difficulty.

But I just didn't think the shooting parts would work well for me on a console. If they ported this RIGHT to the PC. I'd totally be down for some ninja sword shooting deathmatch action.

They did start a Dirty Harry game once, then canceled it.

As for Deadpool, I never get all the love people have for him. Granted, I haven't touched a Marvel comic in 10+ years, but from what I remember of him when he was introduced, he seems like nothing more than a smart mouthed merc with a gun and sword, who seemed to have a knack for making improbable escapes from deadly situations, who was created as a throw away foe for Wolverine. I seem to remember he was a temp foe meant to replace Sabertooth (who was half dead or something from having adamantium ripped out of his bones) and Cyber, I think it was (who was eaten alive to get at his Adamantium skin, which was used to replace Wolverine's missing adamantium).
I also vaguely remember them mentioning he had a healing factor based on mutated cancer cells or something, but it's been a while, so I might be wrong.

Yeah, he's changed quite a bit since his introduction. He's an interesting character because he's fully aware that's he a comic book character and constantly breaks the fourth wall. He does this in front of other characters too, which makes their confused reactions all the more amusing. He's essentially an anti-hero who doesn't always have the best intentions but usually ends up doing the right thing, albeit through ridiculous and highly improbable means.

What Jerykk said. Added to that if I remember correctly he is in one of those "Unable to die" situations because he dated Death for awhile, pissed her off, and now she won't let him come back.

Deadpool is such a great character. I've always loved his sense of humor. High Moon did a great job with Transformers but I dunno. Superhero game is much different than a shooting robot game.

Gotta say on this free play in PS1, the battles don't feel epic anymore.

Not so many vehicles, and all the inside combat is shooting people in the back as they strafe in front of you in the lag.

It's kind of like watching cats being wrangled in most places. People all over the place and everyone sucking because any vehicles you do have are undermanned or people are going different directions.

I really hope PS2 makes the whole interface a little better...the chat system is grossly inadequate in PS1 for what needs to be done in any given fight.

PS1 is running poorly right now because all 5 servers are condensed into 1 server and the pop caps are raised to higher than they were meant to be on the continents. You can still find some epic battles if you're doing it right. Don't follow the zerg, thats not epic. Unless you're dropping bombs on their heads.

" They also explain that unlike many "betas," they are actually using this testing session to improve the game, not just promote it:"

Love that, especially if true.

Imagine the game actually being good enough one day to promote itself. You don't have to try and hook a bunch of suckers or early adopters up front, well unless you actually really do 'have to'.

But can't I pay a $150 pre-order for beta access cause I want to play the game with my friends??? /not

This is specifically why most of the first beta testers will be original Planetside veterans. So we can gauge the battles and decide what is good and bad. They want to keep that epic fight feel. They need the opinions of the only people who have experienced that kind of massive scale gameplay.
Fairly sure some of the top end FPS clans/players have been invited as well and have already been testing in Alpha.

People who play Vanu are the worst. I only associate with one such person, and only because she has tits. Otherwise I would not talk to said Vanu.

What faction do you folks plan on playing Trev? Could have sworn you guys were Vanu, must have been reading wrong.

My tag on here should say it all. For the Republic my friend. Tyranny, Opression and Domination. This is the Terran Motto.

or for those of you who pick shit based on how cool stuff looks. The Black and Red guys.

hehe makes sense, I played NC during my brief time in PS1, though I did always like the TR med assault chainguns, those things were boss.

I just hope the new MCG is equally as dominant. They haven't shown any of the heavy assault weapons in game yet (during the alphas it was because they hadn't finished the underslung animations for them) I'm curious to see if they've finished them for Beta.
