Yeah...after reading that interview, my enthusiasm for this game went from a 6.5/10 to a 1/10

I might pick it up for $5 on a Steam sale now, but not before then.

News Comments > Leaked Valve Employee Handbook?
17. Re: Leaked Valve Employee Handbook? Apr 21, 2012, 19:13 grudgebearer
 
I work for a decent company (champagne when we deliver a product, homebrew when someone brings it in, dogs running around the office occasionally, flexible hours etc...) and our handbook still reads like a bunch of legal jargon solely designed to protect mgmt from lawsuits.

Kudos to Valve for keeping it on the level...

You guys did actually look at the picture right? I love the 40k universe, but kind-of hate Games Workshop for a lot of their polcies...

But that's pretty obviously a nearly exact copy of a Baneblade. The designer should have at least mixed it up a bit if he was going to use a 40k tank as inspiration.

Fan of 40k here. The problem with the 40k setting, if you're unfamiliar with it, is that the scale is enormous. The Imperium of Man controls over ONE MILLION PLANETS.

No game where you're a single guy will ever do it justice. Even the RTS games, while fun, feel comically small-scale compared to the setting.

MMO or not, this game will not capture the setting. At best it will be a decent game with a vaguely 40k related skin.

Thats why a single player game telling a smaller story against a large background is a much better bet. Im still puzzled why no one has yet attempted a first person shooter with the setting.*

1) Superhuman baddass main character - check
2) Epic (TRULY EPIC) gothic/horror scifi backdrop, the universe of WH40K is truly vast, interesting and oozes 'history' and moral ambiguity - check
3) Shitloads of brilliant and well designed weapons that would fit perfectly into a FPS including powerfists, chainswords, autocannons, lasguns etc. etc. - check
4) Even more shitloads of well thought out enemies, from the mundane rebels/heretics, to the more exotic myrads of aliens, mutants, cyborgs, chaos marines, Tau, Necrons... -check
5) Vehicles galore, not really necessary in an FPS but from tanks, to hoverbikes to powersuits and huge mechs (Titans) etc. etc. -check


*well they did attempt one, it was a Playstation console exclusive and featuerd a neutered Tau robot as the main protagonist...talk about FAIL...

This.

There is serious potential in doing a party-based RPG based off of the Imperial Inquisition in 40k.

Chances to interact with several different alien species/servents of Chaos, different branches of the Imperium of Man, and be able to craft a team of minions of varying talents, all the while having to be careful in your choices so that you don't become a heretic.

I'd actually pre-order a game for once in my life if they put out a game like that.

unprecedented resolution bahahaha

;p Resolution of Infinity Engine is fixed, you only enlarge the space you can see and thus make everything smaller by doing so. So their "enhancing" is basically the G3 Widescreen mod.

Get that, enhancing done. ^^

Well, the G3 widescreen mod isn't perfect, and you need additional mods to make the UI usable at the higher resolutions, and most of those break other features like windowed mode. So, it would still be an improvement over the current mods.

Actually, they said they were still in PRE-production at least as recently as early last year.

Actually, you are wrong.

So yes, the game has been "in production" for going on at least 4 years now, if not longer, since White Wolf merged with CCP back in 2006.

It's a short clip of a pre-alpha "graphics test" shown during a panel at a fanfest, and a recording of a recording in a dark room at that, cut them some slack (the game is unlikely to be released until 2014 at minimum). Even with all that, you can make out some pretty advanced lighting effects, and a far more detailed environment than any other MMOs (maybe comparable to the upcoming The Secret World).

I'm just depressed that I'll be 30 by the time this comes out...

It's just a static cityscape...and really just a single street. I mean, if you are going to show off footage of a game that has been in full production since 2008, I'd expect that you'd have more than this.

What is the number one pirated platform and do not give me any of this well all platforms are pirated BS. Keep pirating games, you are only shooting yourselves in the foot. I have said this for years, you reap what you sow.The bottom line is if you do not buy the game you like playing they have no record of sales. There you have it... Hate to tell you that I told you so...

So...now shitty console porting to the PC, with half-assed driver support can also be blamed on "pirating of games?" Fuck, what can't pirating do?

Ugh...I was 15 when I played this...

Not sure if there has ever been a game that I was so bipolar about. I loved the premise, and the world was so huge, but the game-stopping bugs, and just unfinished quests were infuriating.

I finally made it through it for the most part, but before I was done I was so sick of the cookie cutter towns that I wanted to dig my eyes out with a plastic spoon.
