Rise of the Triad Blog & Media

A Developer Blog #1 on the Interceptor Entertainment Website talks about Rise of the Triad, the upcoming resumption of this first-person shooter series. This includes a time-lapse video of a level being created from behind-the-scenes and this batch of screenshots showing levels before and after being textured. Of this they say: "If you’re worried that we’re turning ROTT into some on-rails, boring modern-day shooter, please allow us to kick those fears squarely in the junk." For more on the game, there's also this trailer of the game's QuakeCon 2012 panel.

... Daikatana II anyone?

So far the ROTT remake looks good, but the people behind it do not have a good track record.

Maybe they should hire Walt White. Now he's Breaking some Badass!

It's funny you mention that. Frederik Schreiber of Interceptor Entertainment was working on an unofficial remake of Diakatana before losing interest or whatever the excuse was for cancelling. A couple years later he made another attempt at gaining fame with Duke Nukem Reloaded.

Seriously... where is Quake 5?
Please, no, not while they are slaves to big Beth

To be fair id's problem is not Bethesda. It's the lack of actual game designers since the departure of John Romero.

It doesnt matter. There was no game design talent at id for years now. Tim Wilits may be a nice guy, but ...

Bethesda has been mostly hands off to id Software since they bought them. One good thing they have done is to ensure more of id's IPs get released on Steam (Quake 4 for instance).

Otherwise the parentage has been too short to say otherwise.

I'm hoping for a new Shadow Warrior... Daikatana II anyone?

Seriously... where is Quake 5? System Shock 3? Nobody makes these games anymore?

Indeed, mindless fun, remember that? no dramatic story about your kid being murdered by xyz terrorist or boring cinematics of buldings falling down *yawn* just point, shoot and dance in the spray of blood.

I think Im going to have fun with this game, bring on more classic FPS glory!!!

Doom4 also better not be a modern, on rails or any of that new shit. I want huge levels and badass monsters, a million of them on screen at once.
