Prey Trailer, Demo Plans

A blog comment by Scott Miller on Game Matters (thanks Voodoo Extreme) has word from 3D Realms that as crunch time progresses on Prey, they are preparing to release a playable demo for the first-person shooter in the works at Human Head Studios. Word is: "That's why we're releasing a demo of Prey before the game comes out, and I feel very strongly that the demo will be our most important marketing tool for the game, by a long shot." In further Prey news, the 3D Realms Website has a list of mirrors of "a high quality downloadable video file of the new "Prey Super Trailer" by Jeron Moore."

Creston: Can we get your wife to buy us the game too?

I told her to get 300 copies, but the store didn't have any yet...

Someone compared this to Turok, so that's why I added my two cents in, anyone who said Turok 1 sucked didn't play it when it first cameout, in retro spect, it sucks no, the graphics are crap, the gameplay rough. But at the time of it's release it was amazing, the fog was a little lame, but it added atmosphere to the game. Rage Wars were some of the best multiplayer on the 64.

The first Turok made me motion sick, and I couldn't figure out what the fuck was going on.

Oddly enough, I haven't touched a Turok game since then.

Eh, the only thing that really "wowed" me about this trailer was the bar scene. Other than that, it just looked like Quake 4 with some scripting thrown in.

Where the heck have you been Beamer? They are making a Turok game for the 360.

edit: I typed "online rage wars" hehehe.

Didn't Prey development supposedly start after Quake 1 released.

I thought they referred to it as the Quake Killer. If you ask me, that's almost as bad as DNF.

I'd say the first Turok sucked ass, too. So heavily hyped for the N64, so... not fun.

Which is why I can't imagine someone in this thread rooting so heavily for it and so against Prey. 3D Realms gave us, in some capacity, Duke, Max Payne, Death Rally, and Terminal Velocity. There's at least 2 of those 4 that almost all of us enjoyed. The Turok series gave us at most one.

Gotta go with the proven entertainment. I mean, the more good games the better, but if I had to place a bet I'd side with Prey being better than any unannounced, unstarted, unplanned Turok game.

Forget the damn game!.... I want to know where he found a wife you can give orders to!....

I can give orders to my wife. Of course, she ignores me and then gives me more chores to do. But I can give all the orders I want.

At least the dog listens to me. Sometimes.

Until the new Turok game comes out and wipes it's ass with this.

Dude....do you even remember what the Turok series was? The only remotely similar thing between these two games being the main characters are native American (and that generalization is already superfluous in itself).

I mean, Turok had cybernetic dinosaurs....Prey's got an...actual...storyline...behind it. The one advantage Turok had was it has nowhere but up to go; and it's got a long to climb compared.


And after the first Turok, the rest sucked ass. And while the first one was fun, the fog was a total PITA...

I have a feeling that bar sequence with the abductions is gonna be one of the coolest video game sequences ever.

That flying plane inside of the spacecraft still looks like the poorly scripted piece of crap it would have been six years ago.

I just hope it's a fun game.

I've already seen Advent Children, but my prediction will be the dubbing is horrible. Hell, with very few exceptions, I hardly watch anime anymore in English. (FF's not anime, but fans of one are often fans of the other)

Everybody buy Final Fantasy tomorrow!

I've already ordered my wife to pick up a copy

As for the Prey demo, definitely checking that out. The game LOOKS good so far, but I really want to Try before I Buy first.

Quake 3 + Turok (the origional) + Doom engine = Way cool game.

That really takes me back to the first demos of Q3 with them showing off the new Portal Technology. Combined with that same feel i had when playing Turok on N64 the first time all put together with some amazing level design and D3 Engine use.

Going to bee a sweet game no doubt about it.
