UT2004 Preview, Q&A

There's an Unreal Tournament 2004 preview on UGO with a look at the upcoming updated edition of Unreal Tournament. The preview describes how those who hated UT2003 will likely hate this ad well, and vice versa, going on to describe what's new and improved for those who fall into the 'love it' camp. The preview is accompanied by a new Q&A with Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski who discusses plans to enhance the single-player play, the new Onslaught mode, the impact of vehicles on gameplay, and more.

But if he sucks it up, puts his nose to the grindstone, and gives 110%, I'm sure the angry lad can give his terse green vegetable foe all he can handle.

Well that was a bust. These guys must have stagefright like Carley Simon.

I need to see if plain Furious beats FuriousBrocoli.

I don't know... not looking good for plain Furious... already resorting to the "mis-spelled word" counter argument.

The kid's a fighter, but he needs to regroup. One mis-spelled word or badly thought out metaphor and it'll be all over.

But if he sucks it up, puts his nose to the grindstone, and gives 110%, I'm sure the angry lad can give his terse green vegetable foe all he can handle.

This kind of kiss-ass previewing makes me want to vomit on your shoes, Russell.

This is broke-ass UGO we are talking about! Com'on guys, you know better than this. You can pay for any kind of preview. UGO needs money more than integrity.

Edited for typo.

Jet packs were fun in Tribes. I'm not sure if I'd like them in UT though. I do like the quad-jump mutator. Being able to get that much hang-time and pull off some neat tricks is a lot of fun

FuriousBroccoli,

Generally before a person decides to be an asshole and try to make themselves look all so superior they should check their work. I tried looking up the word 'opinon' but simply couldn't find it because you can't fucking spell. Maybe you should get your head out of your ass before you become a wiseguy %).

well at the end of the article, it says that there will be a rebate for UT2003 owners. (hopefully not requiring something I tossed in the trash) Which is decent. I paid like $32 for the first one, and enjoyed it for lan parties. However, even liking it, I doubt I'd put down more than $25 for what is basically an expansion.

Unreal Tournament 2003 did something new for an FPS game. Instead of releasing repetitive bonus packs and patches, the developers determined that the game's engine and gameplay were versatile enough to handle several renditions, so they decided to follow the sports game trend of adding the year to the end of the game's title. So, in theory, if UT2003 sold well, we'd be seeing another one just a year down the road.

- Russell Frushtick, UGO

How any serious game journalist or gamer for that matter can put a positive spin on the shameless re-peddleing of content that SHOULD have been 1) included in the initial release, or; 2) released as a free download, or; 3) the very least sold as an expansion pack, is beyond me. This kind of kiss-ass previewing makes me want to vomit on your shoes, Russell. Do you really think that Epic was the first company to come up with the idea of repackaging worn content and worn ideas as "new" products? No. But all of those other companies realized that in the long run people would just stop buying their games if they did.

Shame on Epic and shame on you, Russell!

I wish 2K4 was more of a return to UT style gameplay instead of 2K3 + vehicles, but I know that won't happen :\

I'm just wishing for a UT2kx game that is more like UT. I liked the game speed then, and the weapons were fine, if a bit bizarre. I spent many a LAN playing UT CTF, and I think if they worked on a game like that, I'd buy it.

As it is, I tried the demo for 2k3, and decided it wasn't for me. Theres one less sale right there, for both games.

"You do want the game though; you just don't want to pay too much for your muffler:"

That would be a high motivating factor for my opinion. I did end up getting UT2K3, but I payed ZERO for it, but I would have paid $20 for it, like I had said. Is it fun? It really is almost identical to the original UT with better graphics and one less VERY fun Mod. I did like the original UT, so yes, I do like UT2K3, but I think the consumer is getting super screwed which is why I hope it bombs.

Now, if only they would replace all the weapons, they would be on to something here. UT2003 weapons blow.

I like the jet pack idea. It was the best part of Tribes, and it would be cool it UT.
