Pariah in May

Publisher Groove Games announces May 3, 2005 as the global release date for the PC and Xbox editions of Pariah, Digital Extremes' first-person shooter:
TORONTO - January 25, 2005 - After almost a year since its unveiling, Groove Games, a global interactive entertainment software publisher, today announced the official ship date for the highly touted first-person action game, Pariah. The game, being developed by First-Person Shooter (FPS) aficionados, Digital Extremes will hit retail worldwide on May 3, 2005 for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and the PC.

"Pariah is looking impressive," said Jon Walsh, CEO of Groove Games. "The team at Digital Extremes has really pulled out all the stops to make a mark in the FPS genre with Pariah. And, on May 3rd gamers everywhere will get to experience the polish and hard work that has gone into making Pariah the next big, must-have FPS."

Announced last March, Pariah has steadily gained awareness as a game to watch after it was awarded Biggest Surprise at the industry's Electronic Entertainment Expo by IGN.com last spring. It has been revealed that the game intertwines a compelling story, evolutionary gameplay and stunning visuals to create an impressively immersive single-player campaign as well as a fully loaded multi-player component.

Groove Games is publishing the game in North America while Hip Interactive Europe will distribute and publish the title in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. For more information on the game visit the official website at www.pariahgame.com.

FYI...here's how the partnership between DE and Epic worked...for the most part DE was responsible for ALL of the content and gameplay on all the Unreal games except Unreal 2 (which thankfully they had nothing to do with) and Epic was in charge of most of the technology end, keeping the Unreal engine up to date, etc. So don't underestimate DE's capabilities...Epic's just better at tooting their horn.

Digital Extremes developed Unreal, Unreal Tournament, UT2003 and UT2004 along with Unreal Championship on XBox.

Let it be said that most of these were develop toghether with Epic, and that pariah will be the first game thats "all DE" both in name, concept and development. I think its an Unreal engine game

Peace to you bro and sorry bout the name calling SMA is a good moniker...

And stop being so Fking serious about games its not a girl its not your mother get a Fking life and get over it its a bad game.

Number 1: My problem with you doesn't stem from our disagreement over the quality of the KotOR series (although I will admit that I really dislike you). My problem is the result of you going for a cheap shot and implying that I bust a nut at the thought of George Lucas. If you honestly weren't implying that then what did you mean by suggesting that I "get all wet in the pants over SW" and that George Lucas is "[my]kind of guy"?

Number 2: Most people would disagree with your assessment of KotOR.

Psht, Miami Vice DVD...

Batman: The Animated Series season 2 came out today! It brings out the inner nerd like nothing else. Fortunately both sets were given to me by a girl, and I often watch it just after returning from the gym, so I manage to repress that nerd just a bit.

Then I post on the bluesnews board and it all goes to hell.

Please dont start me up as this is one of the worst RPGs ever imo, yeah yeah you get all wet in the pants over SW and so do I but, not KOTOR, I hated that scripted crapola game billing itself as a RPG. erased it and traded it to FUNCOLAND. btw George Lucas is a flake. but im sure hes your kind of guy. next.....

Dude, what the fuck is wrong with you? Okay you don't like KotOR, you could have said as much but why the fuck do you have to imply that my liking it some how makes me George Lucas's bitch? And what RPG isn't scripted? Quests are by their very nature scripted. If you mean linear then yes KotOR was more linear than most CRPGs but that doesn't mean it wasn't fun or replayable regardless.

Pariah is their first non-Unreal title in quite a while.

I am not saying I have extremely high hopes for any of these games, especially the watered down-looking, same-y same game KotOR 2, but I am at least somehwat interested in them.

Watered down in comparison to the CRPG standard or watered down in comparison to the first? If the latter then don't worry. I thought KotOR 2 was awesome; at times it was significantly better than the first and at others "merely" on par. The only complaint I had with it was the somewhat muddled and rushed end game but then again the ending that brought back memories of PS:T made up for it.

3vil p33glit,

Nah, I was referring to the previous projected release date for Pariah. F.E.A.R. is projected for 06/07/05 along with Fahrenheit, but I expect it to be delayed a bit further...
Hell, I expect both those titles to be delayed further.
I do not honestly know much about Pariah. The initial shots looked really nice and I am a sucker for a futuristic sci-fi setting, hence my interest in the title while questioning the final gameplay.

Wondering what the release date is for Duke Nukem Forever :o,
Ray

On a sidenote, the Miami Vice DVD (I think with the whole series on it, or maybe it's just season one) is supposed to come out sometime within the next two months.

Two months? Try two weeks, sucka! February 28 is the "official" street date, though ordering it online will get you it upwards of a weeke early...
Chappelle's season 2 comes out then, too
There are some fellow trashy classic shows coming out that day, too.

Noting Mac and Magnum are out already,
Ray

I will certainly take that over June 7.

June 7th? Are we talking F.E.A.R.? That's the one that has my hopes up a bit.

This Pariah went completely under my radar as this is the first I've heard about it. Is this an HL2 engine game? Looking it over I don't see anything new but if the story is there who knows.

Now, to get back on topic, so far I have seen one screenshot of Pariah, and no gameplay whatsoever or anything. What weapons are in it, are there vehicles etc etc. The only thing we've heard is that Digital Extremes is doing it. Who are they again? Are they the guys who made the original Unreal, or Unreal 2?
If the former then yay, if the latter then..... well...

My God you ever heard of google or askjeves? WTF are you asking silly questions for when you can just look up the answers yourself. And when you speak in the third person like that you really make yourself look like a ass , what do you mean by we havent or we anything? Its all on you so speak for yourself and stop including us. www.google.com

You make the US sound like it's still the 1980s with Don Johnson cruising around in a Ferrari busting drug rings and having casual sex.

Sonny Crocket is the greatest American Who Ever Lived. He's my fucking hero. When the Mob blows up his flashy sports car, he goes into their main hideout and DEMANDS a new car, so he gets a Testarossa. Plus, whenever he jumped into the Miami harbor, which was approximately once every 34 minutes, he would come out with his hair still styled and slick.
Sonny Crockett for president!


On a sidenote, the Miami Vice DVD (I think with the whole series on it, or maybe it's just season one) is supposed to come out sometime within the next two months.

Btw, Cheese is a troll. Don't take him seriously. He's like fredster, only less funny.

Star Wars: Republic Commando

Call of Cthulhu

U2 looked nice, but was neither a sequel to Unreal nor a good game
Still needing to watch the first Champloo DVD,

I hope Pariah is good, it looks a bit too much like Unreal2 tho.

Agreed, although Unreal 2 was pretty fun in parts. I'm always open for a solid shooter and if Pariah can deliver that I'll be happy.
