Commader Shephard fights Sauron in this game? Talk about unexpected...

Anyway, pretty cool trailer actually, although have no clue what the gameplay is going to be like. Seems to have a pretty dark, gritty, realistic tone. Let's hope they at least try something different with this one, rather than just copying you know who....I would love to see a game like this with realistic ballistics, and one shot kills. Maybe throw in some moral dilemmas for good measure....

That was a really well made trailer. I hope this gets released. It has been under development for a long time.

I keep calling it "That sand Game" :D since I can barely remember the it's title most of the time ...

You don't know what it's about? There have been tons of previews of it before it went off the radar a year ago.

Now JOURNEY is that sand game, too!

That trailer was awesome though, hope the game's tone is disturbing rather than male power fantasy.

Might be interesting but the presence of the Desert Eagle pisses me off, when are moviemakers and game devs going to learn that NOBODY IN THE REAL WORLD FUCKING USES IT.

Can't these game developers come up with something else OTHER THAN MORE MILITARY SHOOTERS?? wtf?

Oh and the Commader Shephard thing, I believe there are several articles that focus on how the main character in a shooter game are a stereotypical white male, ex/military, shaven head clones designed to look like "cool" empty shells that the general gaming audience can "identify" with or wannabe like despite being nowhere close to the physical fitness or appearance of the character.

Giantbomb says they want to change the modern military shooter like Apocalypse Now and Platoon did to war films.

As far as I remember, this game always nailed the atmosphere every time they gave us something. Hope it's not just the Apocalypse Now atmosphere that is good in this game...

whatever it is, it needs to be different - fps-es are so abundant (I mean ridiculously abundant) they need to start tackling other elements of play in the genre (games on a whole should do this IMO)

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah I'm sure it is one of the best.. I'm sure Starcraft is great too but I could never really get into mp RTS either (10 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Well, it's hard to say that DotA2 doesn't do what it does well. If it's not your perosnal cup of tea, that's understandable, but it's a great game none the less. Which i suppose you never denied. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I didn't say it was surprising. I just don't like the inputs. And sure.. most. (17 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: A WC3 mod plays like an RTS? No wai! Most mobas do though, and DotA is basically the origin of the genre, so go figure. (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I mean more power to it.. people like that and it's based on a Warcraft mod. I just don't love that. (19 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Megido: It plays like an RTS.. and not every MOBA plays like an RTS.. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @asdfg: I wonder if it was the fault of the crane or people. I guess stuff happens when you do big construction in small spaces. (21 minutes ago)
