Prey Gold?

A post to the 3D Realms Forums to a thread anticipating the release of the Prey demo at midnight eastern time tonight/tomorrow morning (story) has what seems to be a hint about the status of human Head's first-person shooter from George Broussard:

I smell Gold.

Then again, 4 years for a triple A title is not unheard of at all.

your fallacy is a lack of comprehension abilities...



Maybe, maybe not. But judging from your mixed up statements, you're not on much higher ground.


try looking up the word "rhetorical" in the dictionary

Your use of rhetoric was correct, but it begs the question nonetheless.


if youve never witnessed high expectations causing a letdown when they arent met, thats your problem

No, not really. I just shrug it off and move on. I'd be a nervous wreck if I didn't.


but i think your unwillingness to put 2 and 2 together is the real reason behind your "argument".

My "unwillingless" was my refusal to reject something out of pure assumption. IE, I'd like to try the actual game before basing a more definite oppinion on it.


try to actually understand the concepts involved instead of knee-jerk debating with bullshit abstractions

It's called a logical fallacy and it's not abstract at all. They are often the most common mistakes people make when presenting their arguments. In fact, it's taught in your most basic college class, IE, the general education requirement classes such as English Comp 1/2, Speech, etc.


i proposed a theory that is actually quite easy to understand, its not "one random thing causing the other simply because its present"..

Your words, not mine. I was merely pointing out that you shouldn't make that kind of assumption about it. The hype surrounding the game really isn't that rediculous compared to other examples, anyway.

I don't think they did. They said 9PM PST, which is midnight EST. I'm glad to see it's a premiere and not an exclusive. Let's hope that trend continues.

Prey Demo Next Week [June 15, 2006, 7:04 pm ET] - 40 Comments
GameSpot announces they will be premiering the demo for Prey on Wednesday June 21 at 9:00 pm Pacific time, which translates to the stroke of midnight Thursday for those of us on the U.S. east coast. Word is the sample of Human Head's DOOM 3-engine first-person shooter will offer one hour of gameplay and will include two multiplayer maps in addition to single-player mode. Further:

Defy the law of nature with gravity flipping, a feature that allows you to walk on ceilings and turns deathmatch mode upside-down. Explore unreachable areas with wall walking, and transport from one sphere to another through space-bending portals. With all these unique gameplay elements, you don't want to miss this highly anticipated FPS demo!

What you been up to lately? Or is that in the "I'm not allowed to say" dept?

Just wanted to say I recently replayed ST:EF and although the graphics are now dated, it's still a great game and possibly the best ST game ever made. I'm also getting ready to reinstall JK:JA after a brief hiatus, as it's the best SW FPS combat you can get! Every time I play SW Battlefront 2 I wish for another JK game...

I saw the demo on a big screen at E3 and I was really blown away by the graphics. This is not vanilla Doom 3 by any means. I'd say it closer to Quake 4 in terms of graphics, but with some very interesting features like 360 degree walkways, outdoor areas that take place on floating asteroids, and of course, the whole death/reincarnation thing is pretty interesting. Definitely looking forward to it.

The demo will be out midnight tonight EST as a gamespot exclusive. Likely friday for the rest of us who aren't going to pay $5.95 to download it from gamespot.

Its not an exclusive, its simply a "premeire". The minute someone downloads it can be uploaded to another server and distributed.

I got to play the game about six months ago as an in house beta tester and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to play the full version.

Great job HH guys!

Why do they always release demos around the time I really should be studying for a test?! You bastards!

Did you know that 1 lb of yummy delicious ripe strawberries only has 146 calories,36g carbs, 9g fiber,3g protein,1g fat and 475% daily Vit.C? 1 Snickers bar has 280 calories,35g carbs,14g fat.Eat strawberries!

*shrug* Then why ask it if you're sure it's going to fail out of the hype surrounding it?

try looking up the word "rhetorical" in the dictionary

The fallacy being that assumming one thing will cause the other to fail simply because it's present doesn't make any sense either.

your fallacy is a lack of comprehension abilities... if youve never witnessed high expectations causing a letdown when they arent met, thats your problem - but i think your unwillingness to put 2 and 2 together is the real reason behind your "argument"... i proposed a theory that is actually quite easy to understand, its not "one random thing causing the other simply because its present".. try to actually understand the concepts involved instead of knee-jerk debating with bullshit abstractions

If I think a game is going to suck I simply don't play it.

Prey I will likely play. Depends on what the reviews say. If they say it's bland, vanilla, I'll ignore it. If they say the novel ideas actually work I'll pick it up.

I'm leaning towards interesting but boring. Yes, it sounds like an oxymoron, but I don't like the character designs I've seen, don't like the visual aspects of the level designs, and I'm not convinced the novel ideas will be fun.

But I'm keeping a close eye on it.

Better to think a game is going to suck and be surprised than to think a game is going to be good and it ends up sucking.

Much, much, much better.

I'm looking forward to this because it's been a while since I've played a new FPS. I've passed on the episode stuff and want to get something that lasts 12+ hours.

I am glad to see everyone so happy about Prey (Doom 3.5)

The Portal thing looks pretty friggen amazing. Cool concepts, but I hate how linear feel of the game, And it looks, well, just like Doom 3.5

you answered:

I don't know? I haven't played it yet

i meant it was a rhetorical question


*shrug* Then why ask it if you're sure it's going to fail out of the hype surrounding it? The fallacy being that assumming one thing will cause the other to fail simply because it's present doesn't make any sense either.
