Whenever I play UT2004, which is about twice a year, it reminds me of a 13 year old kid, high on candy and pepsi.

EXACTLY!

Whatever happened to Quake3, putting our faces on the characters heads? Remember that? Oh well, they probably realized that there'd be a Goatsee clan with a bunch of asshats running around with wide-open blood-red expressions if you know what I mean.

I'd personally like to see UT evolve into class and teamwork based gameplay

I really dont think it should. It'd just make it into another "clone" of so many games out there that do this already. Plus the teamwork was aready put in with the Assault mode (great fun that). I think UT should stay as one of the few franchise of games that doesnt evolve past what it originally was. They should stay as a faced pace, cartoony almost multiplayer game. Thats what it began as, that's what it should stay as.

Shame they're dropping Assault though, that was my favourite game type. They never really gave it a chance in UT2k4, I don't think they released any new assault maps - and custom ones are just too hard to make.

All said and done though, what I *really* want to see is Unreal 3 - just imagining the Unreal landscape and architecture in Unreal Engine 3 detail makes me drool.

Nacho,
I'm still new to FPS even though I've been playing PC games since the days of the vic20... HL2 & UT where my first FPS games & I still enjoy the twitch fest that UT2004 & 2007 bring to the table. I do understand your point, If I had been playing these types of games since doom or quake I'd be sick of it to. I find that DC & the soon to be released BF2 offer a nice break from the twitch fest. On my end, the only game that might make me consider getting a console is the boxing game that used to be known as knock out kings.. but that is a big maybe.

Now days it does not matter what platform you play on, there are plenty of good game to keep everybody happy!

I better stop typing now... drinking after work makes for bad posts I guess i'll just wait for Kobalt & his fan club to freak out over my comment!!

Kind of figured this would happen at or around E3.
Considering they came out and said themselves that the most recent release sucked.

Yes. Blue, more of those please.

that you can no longer have too many games being developed in your franchise (see Alliance, Jagged), apparently you can no longer have too many announcements about your game.

This is, indeed, now the THIRD announcement of this game. Blue, I think we get it.

I swear this is like the 3rd announcement i've heard of UT2007. But i guess now this is the "official" one! Will the next one be ultra-official? Then move on to mega-official? Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll get to their official: Xtreme announcements

M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-onster announcement!

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.

They felt the need to remind us about UT2007, after the announcement of ET:QW yesterday.

I personally don't care about the UT games. I'm supposedly in the target market for it, but they're just too cartoony for me. The speed is too fast (and I like fast games), I never did like the weapons either. Especially their bastardization of the sniper weapon. They should have stuck with the projectile sniper gun from Unreal 2. Whenever I play UT2004, which is about twice a year, it reminds me of a 13 year old kid, high on candy and pepsi.

Does anyone else think this is a bit odd?

No. They're pulling an EA. They'll sell it in the fall of 06 and most of 07...just like EA sports titles.

If you look at your reflection, is that all you want to be? http://www.nin.com

Like sports games and often cars, they name it a year in advance so it doesn't look outdated on the shelf after a few months. :/
