I code stuff!
Anni, your first two comments were good, but the last 2 were uncalled for.
I can understand you are worried, I bought Spearhead myself half a year ago, so I'm worried they're not just gonna squander that money and never deliver, however:
It's not just the engine that costs money, think about a place to work and a team to pay, granted I am interested in how much they really need and whether they actually NEED that money, but they aren't exactly the only ones doing pre-order like stuff like this.
Overgrowth and NS2 also allow pre-purchasing to get the latest stuff, but these guys aren't as fancy in their PR(Overgrowth) or can rely on the popularity of a previous title(Natural Selection) and are just doing it slightly different.
Here people get multiple options on how much to spend, so they could provide some minor support now and when a release is looking more likely eventually upgrade later. Plus the stuff they've got is even playable for free in a different format.
It's doing it different, but in a way it's the same thing, I don't see why are you trying to flag them as untrusthworthy and scammers.
I'm worried too, but I'll just assume they aren't scammers and if there's no final product released, it's not because they didn't try or were doing a scam, but simply for reasons that even a bigger budget game can fail on.
Couldn't agree more annd as far as I know this isn't a popularity contest though, so I think the others stand a good chance if you ask me.
But whoever wins, won, so it's not like I'd deny Notch a victory or the prize, but others less fortunate with their sales or financial standing could probably use it more, so I'm rooting for the others the most.
Can you teach me how to vote harder? It sounds kinky.
Yep I know it's on Desura(since I had to upload it myself)
As far as reception goes, I've not seen much of the playerbase, how is it nowadays?
Either way, far as updating goes the mods all ready to get some extra maps if the mappers are willing to put them out, I'm gonna be keeping one of them busy with a new project though and others are busy with their own stuff sooo...
It all depends on what the content producers(mappers/modellers) can do for it at this point.
That and rapping.
Is it just me or did Overgrowth get almost zip showing time on this video, it actually seems to cut out when things start getting interesting.
Just something that I noticed, was watching the video... overgrowth came up... then suddenly it was gone! I felt like I had a blackout or something, rewinded and checked again...
Anyway congrats to all the developers, cool to see Interstellar Marines on here as well I think it deserves some attention, their attention to the weapon feel is something I've not seen in any of the games I've played although I far from played all games there are to play :)
I'm hoping for Overgrowth, or Bastion, that one gets me excited too.
It's probably cause it's turned fully Indie now?
"one big remark, i noticed something very strange that wasn't great at all. and that is that the time between someone fires and when you get hit is to big."
It's called lag and it's the bane of multiplayer gaming when there's an unfortunate abundance of low speed connections or faraway/overloaded servers.
There's not much they can do about it, you can though, make sure to play on servers with the least amount of ping for the least problems with lag :)
Voted Awesome-Sauce, cause Sauce is awesome, and I'm a Sauce, so that means I'm awesome and that means ModDB is awesome, because everytime I log in a Bekey dies and the ModDB's Awesome-Sauce-o-Meter starts rising further off the charts of awesome.
Cool Nauz, but you mispelled Zeitgeist at the start :P
This calls for a ninja edit!
Sorry for being such a dirty mind... but the Wolf's tail looks like... a ... well I won't say it, but everyone that reads it will probably see it if they rewatch the video.
Anyway, good stuff :P
Awesome, noticed I can delete reviews too, which is good since I had a rating sitting on my own mod cause my dad thought it was a good idea to vote... except he was logged in on my account while he decided that...
Deletion seems succesful as I can now rate again, except the number of votes didn't change. Is that cause the number doesn't count own vote to begin with?
Grats Vino, seems RockPaperShotgun caught wind of it as well: Rockpapershotgun.com
How humble and such an interesting but fine post for a release, thumbs up.
Will likely give this a shot because of it :)
Agreed, won't vote, options are way too narrow.
Awesome sounds, pat that sound artist on the back for me.
Animations starting to shape up nicely too I see :)
that's pretty good, still there's a limit to what you can do with it, but I hope it will be enough, I guess it's mainly gonna depend on the servers too(so people from all over can have good ping on a server nearby, but that often doesn't happen).
Anyway, good luck with this, I hope it doesn't die out again :)
Awesome, my one worry with this sort of 1v1 duel thing is lagg. If one or the other person laggs how will that affect the duel? I prefer fair and square fights that aren't ruined by one person having a lagg spike and being unable to do a counter attack move or something, how will Blade Symphony handle it?
Played it through and completed the survey as well.
""Prototype" and "alpha" are often used interchangeably in the realm of software development. When referring the hardware development, the term "prototype" is exclusively used. Both refer to an early stage development stage. It is common for prototype to refer to an initial version which demonstrates the very basic functionality of the development subject."
This is way more than basic functionality :P Well worth calling it a beta or demo, it's even quite long(took me an hour... that's a long demo :D) you're underselling yourselves with choosing to call it a prototype if you ask me :) No need to be so humble if you intend to sell it in the end.
Amazing stuff guys :D
Friends and like minded.
I treat modding as a hobby to do for fun and learning, people that know what they're doing aren't necessarily needed.
But most friends I have know what they're doing anyway.
Played a bit, not really my type of game, but a nicely made game nonetheless.
A fine price too :D
To enjoy it and maybe pickup some skills usefull for a job, but I'd rather not be part of a large company, also said large company probably resides in another country and I don't plan on moving :P
I'm not gonna be the only one either, altough many may still take the chance if it were given to them ofcourse.
