John Romero's Shooter Plans

Former id Software designer John Romero indicated earlier this year he still has plans to design a first-person shooter, and now Eurogamer has word from the Loot Drop CEO this will probably be a PC-first "MMO-ish" persistent world game, though this is not anywhere near development at this point. "Yes, I'm definitely going to be making another shooter and it will be on PC first," he tells them. It's a persistent game, it has persistent player data, the character grows and gets better over time. I think most gamers expect that now anyway, but this was a design I'd done a while ago. I think it's pretty valid. "You will be playing the game as you would expect a shooter to feel, but the specifics of your situation, narrative wrapper and reward system are all unique. I wouldn't want to give out any specifics until I'm close to shipping it. I've learned my lesson about talking too soon about specific game features and release dates."

When is Stevie Killcreek Case's game coming out?

Oh that's right, she's on the street corner turning tricks.

ouch. its not that bad. at least she ended up married to a guy who is more stable than romero. wasnt she one of the "next game gods" on the cover of pc gamer a while back? they must regret that one.

That was under Rob Smith as EiC. At least 3 of the ensuing EiC's all very publicly decried that as one of the biggest gaffs in the magazine's history. I know it was a big joke in their 10 year anniversary issue.

How moronic is it if was so memorable its still the first thing people think of when they hear his name?

People remember him for his very embarrassing and very spectacular failure to deliver a decent game after mountains of hype that went on for years, made all the more spectacular given the expectations everyone had for someone who worked on such a brilliant game previously and seemed to have so much potential. The "bitch" campaign was just a sad footnote that has come to epitomize the idiocy and disappointment of the whole situation.
