Descent Fan Remake

The Descent to UDK Website reveals plans for a fan-developed remake of Descent, the six-degrees-of-freedom tunnel shooter from days gone by (thanks LittleMe). The UDK project is expected to be made available early next year, and this experimental gameplay trailer shows early progress towards that goal. Here is the project leader's outline of their first release:

  • a retelling of Descent's story
  • the original levels remade, with an emphasis on a thriller/horror atmosphere
  • remodeled and animated original robots with advanced AI
  • all the weapons from Descent with potential new ones mixed in
  • a high-detail Pyro-GX ship model with a 3D cockpit view
  • more diverse gameplay with a strong focus on the basics that made Descent great

You might be right. I remember Descent being incredible when it was first released and I had a great time with it. I know I won't get that feeling back by touching any of the old Descents again.

I wish the fan team luck but I doubt they'll bring that feeling back.

Nah he's just a FPS retard, thats what we descenters called FPS whores back in the day when we tried to introduce them to multiplayer descent and they got their asses handed to them and left never to return. It's like watching console halo players try to play FPS PC players, same thing happened with descent. Descent has a skill barrier many can't cross so what they really are saying is "I couldn't play descent well therefore it sucks". He thinks borderlands 2 is game of the year quality when it's a me too consolized FPS. He's a modern gamer his opinions on PC gaming = garbage. I bet 99% he never played descent seriously in terms of its multiplayer or he would have never said such a thing about it. I loved FPS games too back then (played in top quake clans) so I can insult my fellow FPS players who couldn't hack 3D because it was 'too complicated'. STFU newb and learn 360 combat, you narrow fps tard.

Descent is the pinnacle of fully 3D first person combat, having to fight in 360 is demanding and thrilling, it's that most gamers suck at videogames and hence any game they suck at they like to insult and look down upon as lesser.

If you don't believe it think of the war between battlefield, call of duty and doom/ut/quake players. Watch the fps players fight over first person shooter design sometime, pretty funny stuff.
