Looks like it's gonna have singleplayer too. All in all, it will have singleplayer, cooperative, and regular versus multiplayer. I think one of the main appeals is character customization, as well as a "Mirrors Edge" style of navigation where you can climb up ledges and over barriers.Isn't Brink just regular multiplayer only? I already have TF2 for that, don't need or want another.
Actually, that "shithole" tends to be 10x more intelligent and informative than anything on this forum, so yeah, I'd say it's doing pretty well. I can see why you would hate it though. Your irrelevant comments would be downvoted pretty quickly.Reddit?
Jesus christ that shithole is still around?
that would be pretty awesome actuallyTake Fallout, put it in a blender with Left 4 Dead 2.
Team based versus gameplay, set in a post-nuclear war alternate reality.
It has long survived Digg. I would even go so far as to say 100x more intelligent, especially when comparing OTActually, that "shithole" tends to be 10x more intelligent and informative than anything on this forum, so yeah, I'd say it's doing pretty well. I can see why you don't like it though. Your irrelevant comments would be downvoted pretty quickly.
I like where you are going with this. Something perhaps in a city, or even a country-side I guess. Where you basically see normal civilians all around, but still need to shoot lots of people. I'll see your new setting and raise you a controversial idea. You play a modern day criminal hunted by police or the CIA or something. You are being set up by some mysterious entity and everyone is after you for something you didn't do. Nonetheless, it's you against "the man" and you spend the whole game on the run....Killing Police, gangsters, unknowns, government Ops, whomever gets in your way.......:thumbsup:I'd love to play a good shooter that didn't involve War or mutants/zombies/monsters of any kind. I like human vs. human combat, but not in the overdone warzone setting.
This is funny! Thanks for the chuckle!I see us going back to text adventures. FPS sytle:

I don't see the circlejerking, mostly because I'm not subscribed to those subreddits.Reddit: A website where the pretentious douchebags of the internet gather circle jerking each other for praise and upvotes.
Sensible? I can counter this pretty easily. See: P&N. (Maybe a bit hypocritical considering my first comment, but I can't exactly filter out P&N posts.)AT: Sensible discussion about topics at hand.
You're right. The thing is though, I've stopped caring about the big-name developers and publishers. Here's why.It's gonna go downhill. The days of Deus Ex and UT type games are over. Now everybody wants to be the next call of duty. Commercialization killed the FPS genre just like Commercialization killed the Action Movie genre.
Every a new game comes out with a simplified gameplay experience to reel in the masses. It's all brown and bloom. Nothing intelligent nor innovative. Everyone is imitating everyone else. Some do it better than others. But those that do have nothing unique or defining about their games.
The topic is, "What is next for FPS?", and my post projected what I think is going to happen to FPS gaming in the future.How does this event have anything to do with increased consolization and the end of private servers? They still exist, and will continue to exist. There are still plenty of games with free custom content, you just need to dig harder. Understand that 80% of gamers will just keep eating what they are spoonfed, and nothing you say will have anything to do with it. If you want arena style shooters, go pug UT GotY edition. there are still a bunch of Pugs running.
i've never played UT before last summer, and i dominate MLUT pugs.The only regular weapons pug that's active right now is #mlut, but I don't have the skill for that and I don't always get along with some of the cretins there. I would pug at #speedpug if it were still active.
Sounds a little like the first Kane and Lynch game, except they were setup by a criminal kingpin.You play a modern day criminal hunted by police or the CIA or something. You are being set up by some mysterious entity and everyone is after you for something you didn't do. Nonetheless, it's you against "the man" and you spend the whole game on the run....Killing Police, gangsters, unknowns, government Ops, whomever gets in your way.......:thumbsup:
That's great. It's too bad you missed the UT99 scene of 2000-2003 back when there were hundreds of populated regular weapons CTF servers, custom maps, and active clans and ladders. It was a great time to be an FPS gamer. How did you learn about the pugs and #mlut? Was it from one of my posts?i've never played UT before last summer, and i dominate MLUT pugs.
Dragon Age 2, agreed. DA2 is pretty much the most recent in terms of epitome of failures, coming from BioWare is extremely frustrating and depressing at the same time, I'm having a hard time looking at my Baldur's Gate 2, ME1 and DAO's boxes and thinking it's the same company (but not the same people, I guess) behind them all.I agree. Everything recently is lacking in creativity. The market is dominated with retarded sequels (DA2, Diablo 3, SC2, ME3), or games with the same plot summary (COD, even BF3, MoH). Not to say they aren't good games, it is just really lacking in the creativity department. I would say that is true for Hollywood too, all they have been doing is remaking old movies.
