Hopes? none Fear? this coming out
>Hopes? none Fear? this coming out
Are you me?
Stop with this embarrassingly cringy R*ddit format, holy fuck. I know you're a crossposter but at least try not to shit where you eat.
This. And to the people who felt the interest in talking about Killing Floor, make a proper new thread. This one also smells like some faggy community researcher. And yes, we know studios/companies have come to Ganker for research and to poll posters.
It's fun. Guns are cool. Mechanics aren't terrible. Maps are decent. Aesthetic isn't shit
It's bad. Guns are sci-fi. Mechanics suck. Maps suck. Aesthetic is shit
Tripwire have 1 next trailer to almost barely redeem themselves
couldn't even play KF2 because aesthetically it was a nightmare. KF1 was great though.
i have no doubt KF3 will be tacky as fuck, just like 2.
The old bloater looks pretty shit
fears: it runs way worse than kf2 because its on UE5 and will barely look better compared to the performance loss
I can't wait to see how badly optimized it will be. KF2 on launch was a disaster.
Zero chance of it being good unless they've learned what made KF2 so bad.
kf2 is ok
It took them years to wrangle the teleporting zeds and when they finally fixed it they doubled down on bloating the game beyond recognition while failing every single EA promise
Not only do they not understand why KF2 was bad; they also don't seem to understand why KF1 was good. I have absolutely no hope for any games coming out of Tripwire
I fear it to suffer the same fate as Payday 3
Payday 3 is shit because of how bare bones at launch it is and the progression system being the worst that's possibly ever been created. Payday 2 was the same way at launch, but they fixed it. That said, I have no hopes for KF3, it's just gonna be a nonstop monetized piece of shit.
Tripwire got extremely lucky with KF1 and they will never NEVER EVER get it right again
im wondering what sort of retard bullshit will tripwire implement on the game equivalent to kf2 robots
>KF1, cool grindhouse horror aesthetic
>KF2, gay tech everywhere and robots(why?)
>KF3, double down on gay tech to be even gayer
The former CEO was kicked out for standing against mass children genocide. Therefore, KF3 will be cringe 100% and will ruin series for good. You need to move on, anon...
The former CEO also thought pushing for a VS mode during early access was a good idea so maybe he's just retarded
it checks out
>throwing away the person responsible for bad (20%) and also good (80%) decisions in the series because he said the thing
>somehow your following games come out better than the previous ones
It doesn't work that way, anon. Never did, actually.
What good decisions did he make? Microtransactions? Cutting features promised during early access? Sci-fi shit?
I will now play your game.
>KF1, cool grindhouse horror aesthetic
less DLC than KF2
more DLC than KF2
At least make them cheaper or something. 15 dollars for 2 weapons is insane.
been playing through all the perks lately FIREBUG IS THE MOST GARBAGE PERK IN KF2
another horde mode zombies clone
That's ironic considering Killing Floor is older than Left 4 Dead (as mod) and practically invented this type of game.
How the mighty have fallen.
The biggest fear is they go even deeper into the sci-fi glowie light cringe and evidently that fear is being realized. Any interest I had in this franchise was stone dead by the time they started throwing out lootbox horse shit
People liked the niche brit humor and lingo. GET UP DEM APPLES and shit like that. The eurojank of the game was the charm. And then 2 just decimated all that soul.
this so much. Same reason people latched onto shit like E.Y.E.
I remember booting up kf2 for the first time and wondering why it felt like I was playing the tomb raider reboot
Another case of retarded devs who have no idea why players like their games
>niche brit humor and lingo
Ironic that it is made in Georgia, USA by extremely Christian Americans.
That, and Killing Floor was pretty grotesque. It was rusty, grungy metal with enemies that looked like straightforward tortured and experimented humans. Killing Floor 2 cleaned everything up and made them look like caricatures instead.
Nah, KF2's zeds still look like horrific atrocities
out of all the issues kf2 has, zed design has to be one of the few things they got right
Hard disagree. They're too cleaned up, and in most cases, they try to make them look cool and intimidating instead of twisted and horrific (aside from the Bloat which instead they made straight up cartoonish). It's mostly only the Siren and Stalker that still came out looking as properly awful as their KF1 counterparts.
i probably would be able to cherrypick those aspects if the game itself was fun in the first place
Rioters and gorefiends would like a word.
some designs in mod are better
Games sucked cause people would just camp 1 meta spot the whole game in both games. Shit was aids. It's only fun when its new and theres havoc.
The sky is falling!
will buy day 1. i support you mods
decent game - hope
shit sjw game with nerfed zombie nudity and overpriced weapon pack - fear
That Rocky Gray returns on the soundtrack
why the fuck would anything nice ever happen
More robots due to going all-in on the scifi setting
KF2 FAMAS/G36-tier animations on not just the weapons, but all entities
Insult players not returning
Can anyone first explain what the fuck happened to all the skins I paid for in KF2?
thx for the tip 🙂
But they were all from the community, I traded for them. One day I looked in my Steam inventory and every single skin for KF2 was gone. They literally stole things I paid real money for.
The game is fucking dead. Why would they steal my shit?
You paid real money for in-game skins?
From trading in cards yes
i just hope this game isnt 100gbs like the 2nd game
>fired ceo for saying you shouldn't kill babies in a bible thumper state
hope the company goes bankrupt
That fag deserves it for wasting their time developing a VS mode during early access
Tripwire sucks now. I’d say there is a 10% chance it’s good.
>Going all in on the sci-fi aesthetic that was only barely tolerable in 2
and this is bad because?
NTA but the sci-fi aesthetic was kinda shit in KF2 and this is coming from someone who enjoyed the game. It's particularly bad with medic, because all their weapons have that awful white plastic/blue glowing lights aesthetic to it which is a shame because the class itself plays really fucking great. Considering KF3 is supposed to take place in 2092 or some shit this is their chance to fully lean into the sci-fi horror aesthetic and I hope it's something they do.
I didn't mind ONE class having the scifi aesthetic unifying their weapons, since medic's weapons aren't unified by an overall type like everyone else's are, and yeah magic healing gas lends itself to scifi tech fittingly
The HRG weapons were the real pisstake
Yeah some of those HRG weapons are pretty shocking like that phisher price looking AA shotgun for the swat, it's real fuckin' bad. Still I think the hemogoblin is the best looking weapon of the lot and it never gets old to use. I do miss how medic got actual weapons like the mp5 in KF1 but god I just can't go back to medic on that game because of how horribly it plays.
High-level medic with hemo is ludicrous, seems like one of the strongest options for soloing in the game, dump rancid DPS into any big guy and enjoy versatile crowd-control self-healing AoE nades as well as a fast-recharging jab
I just really enjoy the fact that dumping enough darts into an enemy with the hemogoblin turns them into a walking, emaciated corpse while blood constantly pisses out of their body. I really hope they keep something like that for KF3.
This. It was cool when it was 90% tacticool, 10% science fiction. Making everything "glowy future tech" reeks of "hackjob with no vision for a series."
Decent atmosphere on non-event maps. Little goofy at times.
Absolute slop. No atmosphere. Dogshit artstyle and led-techno-shit everywhere
My biggest fear is just the weapon range being overwhelmed with PEW PEW ZAP ZAP toy laserguns that feel like garbage to use instead of conventionals with satisfying meaty effects
self hosted p2p play, berzerker nerf, money shared equally instead of the sweaty meta homosexual hoarding all of it
it will be the same shitty cashgrab that was kf2 with no actual updates ever since it launched
>Money being shared
ahaha fuck no
The hoarder homosexual you mentioned will just rush to the trader and spend everyone's money on his T4 after the first wave
I think he means everyone gets the same amount of money no matter what
it's insane how poorly designed kf2 is
its literally the only coop game where i found myself rooting for the zeds to rape my entire team
>it's insane how poorly designed kf2 is
It can always be worse.
Fallout 76 is without a doubt the most braindead coop game I have ever played. Zero balancing, retarded players spamming explosives everywhere, and the few events that require a single digit IQ people fail.
come back home, white man
fuck you, 1 was better
yeah but there's no content and only 5 people play it
>it's a mandatory sneaking mission episode
there's like 2 heists out of the 84 that are stealth only
Payday 2 was fucking garbage and OVK is filled with retards
Like most games nowadays, people only "play" Fallout 76 to mindlessly farm skins, no one gives a shit about gameplay or cooperation.
Didn't they have to run back their promise of no paid DLC due to how much money they were bleeding? Who cut them a check for a third one?
Improve on the gameplay and that's all I ask for pretty much. The game has a pretty solid base but it could always do some more. I just hope they revise their monetization scheme because goddamn they dropped the ball with that on KF2. A battle pass would just be awful.
>a third one
Why do we need one? So they can shill more shit weapon backs and keys and shit? Is there even a player base for KF2 still because I thought everybody dropped the game due to the dev's retarded decision making.
That they give up and just do something else
They double down on the garbage they packed into 2 without learning a god damned single thing about why people played the first game.
I always disliked how small the maps in 2 were. They made all the enemy models huge in these shoebox diorama levels. The game took longer and longer to load with each update. I played the beta on a toaster and when I upgraded my comp at the time to something with double the specs it still took longer to load than at the start of beta. The fucking weapon upgrade system... cause making shit heavier to have the same stats it had pre-nerf was fun. Fucking Demo was like the only class with combos anymore and that was mostly just potatoing the RPG into magnum head shots on scrakes. The shitty DLC. The god awful implementation of the Vault again and again.
I just have zero faith in Tripwire going forward. It's just a case of something I loved in the beta just seemingly got worse with every update after 1.0.
My only real fear is that it doesn't have any of the fun or humor of KF2. I liked that KF2 had the special events and didn't shy away from interesting maps and ideas. The Tragic Kingdom is one of my favorites and I'll play when they change the zeds for events.
isnt the lead dev MAGA? That'll never work today
Very little. I hope it's good, but don't expect it.
All player characters are the quirky rockabilly chick or even worse. Less voice clips per character, but they play more often. Neon cosmetics on everything. Way less gore. Matchmaking only. The time between launching and getting into a game being enough to read Ulysses.
I'm honestly surprised at how consistent KF2's player population has remained over the last several years.
because some people like to eat shit
heavily modded community servers can keep any game afloat
no hope, no fear, no pain, already know it's gonna be worse than 2
I just want a Red Orchestra game that isn't dead or broken.
Hopes? It's like 1
Fears? It's like 2
I remember hearing John Gibson was a weird idiot who would regularly interfere with KF's development due to his religious beliefs so I don't care
Game still looks shit tho
Hopefully we'll actually get crawlers that can scuttle on walls and ceilings, like we were told the would in 2
Is making them crawl on walls so hard? Just make them go upside down and add specific paths on the walls they're programmed to go to in order to transition to that state. Add in some ledges so they can crawl up levels and go back to the floor in more than one way. Seems fairly simple, just a matter of pathing and making half or a quarter of Crawlers go for the ceilings.
They probably couldn't figure out how to program it around any kind of even-slightly complex geometry
There's actually a KF1 mod that already does this
Only thing I ever did in kf2 was dick around solo with gunslinger
So more of that I guess
Killing Floor HD
Killing Floor 2 HD
Hopes? That it will have all the same classes, and not downgrade on the ability/ skill “tree” slow
Fears? That they take the lazy way out because of diversity hires.
It'll probably be more gachashit like kf2 and they'll try to shove guns behind the lootboxes. I'll pass. KF2 was and remains bad enough.
Just a reminder that KF is a cash cow of TWI.
They will dump all their profits in another failed red orchestra game. After that they will double down on MTX in KF.
Paid weapon packs
Sell cosmetics all day long, but don't you fucking gate gameplay, you fucking fucks. Keeping people playing your game for years should be the incentive to making new guns, not a direct payoff.
Swat shield being pay to unlock was the final straw, I didn't even really mind the robots since dar was also a character but thing putting the one thing that made swat not a discount commando behind a paywall is pure bullshit.
OG KF mod siren is her hottest rendition
Huh, haven't actually seen any of the event zeds. Siren looks pretty neat like this. Can you post more event zed skins?
The christmas siren looks pretty great too
Oh shit, A Christmas Carol reference?
Wonder if there will even BE a Christmas event this year
Fucking nice anon. Please post them all this is some good shit.
More silly maps like Dollhouse & Nightmare's rat stage
I'd like them to redo the unlocks using a combination of XP and currency. It would be nice to have an in game currency earned through maps that you could use to buy dumb cosmetics like skins or like gun tags. But they would probably make it tied to real fiat.
It's going to be super sci-fi techno shit. I'm not putting any hope into it going back to kf1 roots. But I do love kf2 faster gameplay feel, as well as the crazy stupid weapons you can use.
Unless it's on Steam from day 1 and they support community mods, it's going to be DoA like Killing Floor 2. Also just make the game fucking fun, enough of this retarded grinding shit to get a class to a point where it's even playable.
It never gets released.
It gets released.
A lot of weapons and all classes available on release, good animations like the original guns and more polished zed behavior. Good maps and fun dialogue on the characters. Zynthetic doing most of the soundtrack.
Scifi shit everywhere, DOOM Eternal gameplay with glory kills and other boring zoomer shit. Classes being released in a trickle like it was in KF2, classes being reworked into more RPG shit like making zerk into an actual tank because they listened too much to the crowd that only plays on Hard. Soundtrack being more "Industrial Metal" discount DOOM like every other game tries to do. DLC/Battlepass BS.
>Bonus: Given up
There WILL be a bunch of retarded and ugly scifi weapons instead of tacticool guns. Marvel dialogue will be prominent and the story will try to be super serious and "deep" with a bunch of "lore" for people to make 30 min video-essays about.
Instantly lost hope when they revealed it's a far future cyberpunk setting.
>Appeal of the game is in off-kilter late 90s early 2000s military/police fighting a horde of fucked up mutant monsters
>glowy horzine stuff were always the ugliest and least visually appealing parts of the game
>focus solely on that aspect of the setting for the sequel
I'm not sure what they meant by this.
I wonder if its throwing what little canon there is to the wind or is Horzine actually going to still be around decades after 2 and kicking off yet another cyberzombie apocalypse
>trusting tripwire or having hope for their games after KF2
>humanity is on its very brink and most people are dead or zombies
>3 takes place a gorillion years in the future somehow
The zeds actually threatening all mankind at apocalyptic scale seemed like a really daft prospect
I always just assumed the characters were being melodramatic when they reacted to the sorry state of the maps and calling it apocalyptic
Embracer Group is dying. Expect the game to be COMPLETELY catered to the mass market. Probably worse aesthetics than KF2, and more woke shit.
Nah, killing floor 2 was almost ok until they fucked it over and over again.
I don't think tripwire is capable of being a decent dev anymore.
It's going to be terrible.
EPIC WEAPON PACKS HAHA 4 TEH WIN
They're going to fuck up the special Zeds something fierce I just know it.
Also it wouldn't surprise me if Volter, Patty, and Matriarch decide to show up too.
There's no way they'll bring Volter back, if the new map is anything to go by he's basically dead for good
Haven't played in ages. Explain? Did they bring back the objective maps from 1 which had story in them?
They brought out a new survival map last month called Castle Volter, the story behind is that you're basically storming his final stronghold to kill the real Volter. If you open all the secret valves then the final boss fight takes place in his hidden laboratory against him and all the clots he summons are premature clones of himself. It's a pretty nice map, plenty big too surprisingly.
Are the clots unique or just ordinary looking clots?
I believe they're just reskinned alpha clots for the boss fight, the secret trophy room you unlock before the boss fight is kinda neat though
Shit series. It always has been Reddit the game.
i dont like all the sci fi weapons
just want random irl weapons that are cool
Total Firebug Death
Do you think they'll add microtransactions into it during early access this time too?
Well whatever they do I am not touching Tripwire garbage anymore. Made the mistake of buying KF2
Opinions on quarterpounders? They killed my desire to play KF2.
Most non-vanilla enemy additions were terrible. Extra points to how poorly designed King Fleshpound, Abomination, and Matriarch are.
still better than edars
just zeds, no robots
ADHD zeds that break dance towards you
Nope the robot shit ruined the atheistic of the old game. KF is at it's best on maps like farm house or woods and the generic Sci fi maps and enemies are less fun then the fleshy targets. Their Halloween maps in castles and mansions are also better then labs and generic silver hallway 200.
the real fear would be playing public hoe when kf3 launch
i hate circle jerks and kf veterans are absolutely garage human beings. hypocrite. create smurfs for troll other peoples games.
just imagine: fuckin ton of tourists, streamers, votekick abuse, firebugs.
This. also i feel they gonna make some shit like in darktide. like hub and some linear campaign with not so many levels
yeah probably the worst community in gaming.
Are you latinx? No one acts like you just described unless they’re people in latinx servers. You literally described the latinx KF “community” and their toxic behavior
American servers are the same. specifically hoe and hoe +
I play almost every day, believe me, I know the motherfuckers.
you can play accuracy perks, even helping the team, it doesn't matter, they will try to fuck you. ruin the match trollin or simply kick you.
you can only avoid this by playing private or circle jerk
i fucking hate people
some people who posted in this exactly steam thread are hypocrites. they act polite in foruns but use smurfs to fuck in pubs, and you can see other posts saying the real about the elitism. i don't feel like playing online because shit like this.
never experienced then again i play console. i do have retards who try to kick me for no reason though. last one tried to kick me because he was asking money and i didnt give him anything. the worst community in gaming has to be dead by daylight community. full of trannies who bitch if they dont have their way
AHM WELDIN DIS DOAH
good luck homosexuals
kf2 fucking sucked, why even bother with 3
because KF makes money
Is there any reason to get this or Kf2 when KF1 exists? KF1 will completely overshadow anything they release with the continuous release of mods
is there a mod for KF1 that fixes horrible hitboxes?
Biggest fear: A lack of bangers
Why is KF2's download size 100gb?
>KF2 finally in a good (relatively) place
>this slop comes around
My biggest problem was not toxic people but absolutely retarded people
>this is good position lets stay here each round and stick together
>"stand your ground" pops up and 2 of the team run off to the other side of the map
Boring homosexual move between waves. Staying in one place sucks.
Wherever you are it doesnt matter, the issue is homosexuals running off as soon as the round start
KF2 cemented these guys as a fluke. No interest and no hope it will be shovelware and fuck you for even posting about it
a bit janky, but super fun hard coop in grindhouse with a little bit of comedy coming from it's characters, most of who are in military or have a military past
somehow not a single gun in the game feels responsive at all, dumb nanosupertech is everywhere, every character is a fucking clown now
it tanks tripwire and their shitty company
they continue to ruin and waste their IPs
they already got bought by game industry collectors once known as thq and now as ~~*embracer group*~~ that means they are soon to join the dead studio shelf
So is this why there always seems to be a crawler in my ass every time I turn around?
What the fuck?
The game does almost nothing to hide it, it constantly spawns enemies literally 5 feet behind you if nobody is looking. It's why there is ALWAYS a crawler or stalker hitting you even though you just checked, because they have spawn points fucking everywhere and dump them out the nanosecond they're not watched. KF2 is fucking terribly designed with how it tries to fuck over holding ground instead of doing retarded circuits around the map with sprint.
I always complained to my friends that it seemed like Zeds were spawning in thin air in areas they should not be, and recently I've literally seen zeds spawn in thin air right infront of my eyes.
This is fucking stupid.
They came from inside the building, immediately left from those doors.
Somehow all the people responsible for KF2 die a slow and agonizing death.
KF3 releases and it's just KF2 2.
Gay players who don't understand their roles.
Looking at you, Ivan.
>Gay players who don't understand their roles. Looking at you, Ivan
Yikes! My role is to be a true visionary, a pioneer in yet unknown game meta.
Killing Floor 1 3
Killing Floor 2 2
it's like 1
it's like 2
I should have refunded kf2 when EA ended.
the base game will be 200GB
I haven't bought a Tripwire game since they fucked up Red Orchestra 2 release.
I vividly remember the beta running super smooth for everyone, the game actually comes out and fps is down in the low 40's for everyone and they dared to tell the playerbase to upgrade their PC.
I've been looking at KF2 sporadically over the years and not only did it take them forever to get out of early access, it took them god knows how many years to have feature parity with KF1. Last time I checked the game is an abomination that makes TF2 clownfest skin-economy look sane.
there will be daily threads in Ganker when it launch, and god knows for how long
>Red Orchestra is NEVER getting another game
KFMod had peak aesthetics
West london is straight better in kf1
>poop brown and smog
israelitewire can't map for shit, they ruined every single map pulled off from workshop
If the two israelites running that sinking ship are still there it will be as shitty as kikingfloor 2, also epig online services are a requirement to play assets flip 3, so who fucking cares, they fucking have to die.
Why don't you play modded KF1 servers Ganker?
It's better than anything tripwire is going to shit out.
If its going sci fi, go hard, make dead space, where its grungy and the weapons are all chunky, where you have oppressive lighting and level design. My fear is that they just do more silly steampunk or "everything looks like a dentist office" sci fi.
There is a rumour that it might be time travel based which would allow to more variety in maps and weapons for sure, but its just a rumour. Not sure I would even like that to be honest, I just want the setting to stop being fucking gay neon shit and go back to Dog Soldiers with mutants.
>which would allow to more variety in maps and weapons for sure,
Like they didn't already just shove in everything already between the sci-fi and holiday shit.
It was already good enough for kitchen sink horror, anything else is unnecessary especially taking into account community maps
Their sci-fi design suck
Same thing happened to xcom.
kf2 is the most fun ive had in a while leveling up every class is a different experience. i havent played 1 but i still feel like everyone in this thread got filtered or its just one tranny seething
Both games are good actually, but first one was comfier, had less microtransactions and robotic gay shit.
They're being too dramatic just to cope with upcoming abomination in OP-pic.
ive been grinding the fuck out of it for like 2 months now so i think everything is unlocked. Are the microtransactions not cosmetic only? I still do just fine with the weapons given to me anyway and evreything unlocks when a player with the weapons joined.. i never understood why that happened but it makes sense that someone bought a pack or something
yeah you show em lilzoom
Into the trash it goes.
it's more than just shooting waves, maybe like cod zombies with missions
tripwire has lost it completely
Lore is already ruined
Return to soul
No soul (guaranteed outcome)
>Killing Floor lore
Better technical longevity than KF2. It got old very quickly compared to KF1.
More about concerns. They might not do it.
Remove that nagger boss Matriarch.
oops there's no cover nearby? dead.
oops I've backed you into a hallway? dead.
oops you got a bit too close? dead.
haha i have the highest effective hp in the game, can't be outran by most classes and there is no telegraphing my attacks!
The first three are all things you control, you know where you're backpedalling
And the fuck do you mean no telegraphing, she very clearly stops and charges up her gun
And don't be a scrub who empties ammo into the shield
>Play on a slightly more open map with little to no line of sight breaking objects/meshes.
>Try to kite the boss and shoot her when her shield is down.
>Eventually a combination of EDARs spawning infront of me and the boss chasing me down leads me to an area with very little cover.
>Matriarch still has a little bit of HP on her cannon.
>Hear her say a voiceline, try to run for cover.
>Random EDAR across the map knocks me out of the cover for more than a second.
>Dead from 100HP.
Boss leaves no room for error, can easily 1 shot you with 3 different attacks, has the worst add zed out of all the bosses and is so fast she can chase down anyone not running zerk, gs, or swat. She's fucking cancer.
Three games they've been at this AND WE STILL CAN'T KILL THE FUCKING FLOOR. Those dudes just don't get it.
>finally kill the floor
>everyone falls into the void, screaming forever until they die
You think you do, but you don't
get a new joke already reddit
Introducing, Murder Ceiling.
Bad sound design
Bad character design
Few new things over the previous games
I hope it doesn't fall into the same rut KF2 did. at some point the maps and weapons just felt uninspired. I am afraid it will be 120gigs+ with no optimizations like kf2
I have no hope for this title, therefore I have no fear of its failure.
KF1 used to be THE game to plan with the boys when we do hangouts and LAN games. What a fucking shame.
