Report content RSS feed NEOTOKYO° - Start your training, noobs!

In preparation for their upcoming release, the NEOTOKYO° team has released several images hinting at the mechanics of the game.

Posted by on

Well, it looks like its NEOTOKYO° is almost here, according to the official word from pushBAK on their site:

pushBAK wrote: As far as development goes... the mod is essentially done. We've just got a few things to tidy up (double checking to make sure maps don't have problems like not enough spawns for large player counts, working with server admins to see if their admin tools are essentially compatible with NT, fine tuning a couple weapons for balance, etc..) We're also going to try and get the word out a little more aggressively by doing the usual PR stuffzzzzz.

Hopefully soon we can get a proper official tutorial going, and some announcements/info (max player recommendation, release map list, server stuff, last of the media, etc...) As soon as we've locked down these things, we'll post it up.


In addition to this, a number of 'noob hints' were posted up that detail a lot of the mechanics behind the classes, the special vision modes and 'capture the ghost' gametype.


Looks like its in the home stretches now...

Tachikomas are constructed out of pure awesomeness and mineral oil.

Should it not be Uchikoma? :)

I'm guessing this will be ingame.. Seeing how every single picture says "RANDOM HINT".

Anyway thanks for the update, now I have something to feast my eyes upon until I am a Neotokyo noob no more.

Superfuntime! I have been waiting for this one so long, always knowing it would be better than what I expected and it is even better than that! (at least that's what I expect!)
:) confused? Exited!
-Should release on Steam! Valve puts on a lot of weaker mods!

this mod will have bots?

It will not have bots. My guess is due to the amount of time required to program the AI.

Simple bots that mimic your actions aren't hard to do. But i think it's unlikely that it will have bots with the same capabilities as in counter-strike.

What? How is he wrong? For one thing that's an opinion and opinions can't be wrong; as for what he said, there have been many games and mods in the past that look amazing, but once you play them they aren't really that great. I'm not saying this is one of those mods, but you can never know until you play it. Even then it's an opinion whether it's good or not so it doesn't really matter, and no one will be wrong for saying it's a bad mod.

Some of the music found on the CDs not provided in the game are actually really good. Plus the bitrate of the CD version is far higher than any MP3 will offer. I'd urge you to get the CD.

What the hell? How did I miss this mod? Without a doubt the greatest Source Mod I've seen yet, besides maybe GarrysMod (But really, that is EVERY mod....). I just need to know one thing though, HOW DID YOU DO THOSE VIDEO EFFECTS? The ones where you were sweeping from one persons view to the other? I've never seen someone do that for a source mod trailer before without it being CGI.

Most of the shaking and such looks like post processing. The slow motion and camera movements can be done in source if you record it using a Demo.

The Source engine is actually very capable with pings and such. I've seen games where the server is hosted in the US and people from Japan are getting a ping of 200. Not great granted, but better than other engines might offer (upwards of 400-500).
