    I'm not. And I'm not.

    I'm over this trend. Most of them are exactly the same soulless, early access garbage. Ion Fury Aftershock isn't even happening anymore. It's played out, time to move on.

        What fps games do you play instead?

      Prodeus has good movement and gore but it's fucking hideous and artistically bankrupt. All these games forget that the original Doom and Build engine games had great artistic direction with the movement and the now outdated but still visceral gore. Ion Maiden suffered from too many bland sewer and industrial levels and the sequel keeps getting suHispaniciously pushes back. Maybe because doing psuedo quake 1/2 era 3D requires more work than expected. Personally I want this trend to be over and to get late 90's 3D games like solider of fortune, Shogo MAD.

      Looks like an unholy abomination of advanced build engine Voxels and early Litech 3D environments and effects. I kinda like it.

      There where mid tier games at the time anon. For every decent 90s shooter there where tonnes of clones there where also lots of good mods.

    I tried Prodeus grew bored maybe 50% of the way through the game and dropped it. It honestly felt like that "All Style no substance" meme like it played fine but I felt like I was just playing a worse nu-doom
    Kinda interested for compound fracture

          That fine, but i loved it, the shotgun was great, the AI is fun and promising, its certainly a bit early in the game to judge fully (he even said it was the first level he made)

              Its not in early access andi meant it as in only the first level is public, making it hard to judge (id be hard to judge even the best games/wads on just the first level)

              How are turok 1 and 2? Should I get the remasters?

              Turok 1 was fine, but was too easy.

            It is literally a chud game. The developer is a chud. The character you play as is a chud. The demo alone is full of LGBT dogwhistling. Actually 42% yourselves chuds.

              The dev is a normal guy
              Take your meds

              Thoughts? I like it a lot, not so much the sequels
              and I never really cared about the original so maybe thats helping my opinion
              the sword combat is so fucking fun I just wish they went with a different control scheme
              on ps4 you can use the touchpad which honestly feels more intuitive than tapping on the left stick twice

              It sucks, movement is shit (should have had you run faster than needing codshit to go fast), enemies are dumb and spongy sword combat hurts my hands, and the guns are bad.
              the original mogs it, even the sword combat is more fun.
              SW2 is the same (have not played the third one, though i do like eternal)

      I want an unreal clone but Hispaniced up, I love quake 1, duke and all but there hasn't really been an u/ut99/ut3 type game

        Unreal tournament vibes are like nothing else. It has that 90's edge but also high sci-fantasy and comfy techno. I don't know if you could do all that in a single player game though.

        I hope Phantom Fury is good. Also hope that the final episode of Alien Armageddon comes out this year.

        That map design looks a little underwhelming honestly.

      I'd recommend it just to see what a twelve year passion project looks like. The environmental detail is amazing but the level design is pretty bad. Often times trying to find out where to go feels like finding secrets in any other game.

      Its easy to make one new weapon, but a whole arsenal is alot harder.

        Flaregun, slingshot, harpoon gun, blowgun, rpg, cannon, flamethrower. Off the top of my head for "ranged" weapons. Melee is easy, could just name shit on my desk.

    Played Timesplitters future perfect the other day, still holds up. For my money Timesplitters are some of the most fun games, it’s refreshing to play something where fun was #1 priority and this absolutely translates to today. Playing virus on some of the crazy maps with a load of robot players of all shapes and sizes with ridiculous guns like flare guns and proximity mines was a blast

      It was fun. I enjoyed it. It's better than the original. Didn't care for the second one and never played the third.

    I completely forgot about that guys game. I looked it up because the thumbnail reminded me of Turok so I assumed based on that someone was making a Turok style game.
