    Who is this even fucking for? Marathon is a cult classic, it's not a huge brand. The very few people who remember the Marathon trilogy (e.g. me) don't want this, and to the normies and especially the zoomers to whom they're going to have to sell this it might as well be a brand new IP. So why not just make it a brand new IP???
    I am actually so fucking mad about this. Greg Kirkpatrick must be spinning in his grave right now (well, except for the fact that he's still alive).

        Why would anyone want to check out some 90s crap? You grew up playing 2d trash so you're conditioned to like it, but for zoomers who started with much more modern titles this dinosaur shit holds zero appeal.

          you don't understand, to the vast, vast majority people this is a new IP, this is not some 90s crap got them, this is a new game called Marathon, not Marathon 3, which is a very smart decision by marketers the last few years, they just want to reuse a name they already have the rights to so they don't gotta go through all that process again

        the gameplay sucks dick but i find the setting and writing of marathon interesting.

        in fact, its what even the fans find interesting. nobody plays marathon for its cutting edge, slick gameplay. they play doom for that.

        so to take a game really only well known for its story and writing and then make it into the worse modern subgenre of game...well, even just a casual fan like myself can get triggered by that.

      I think this is just another Prey situation. The only reason Arkane's Prey used the Prey title was because Bethesda forced them to use it to protect their intellectual property or something of that sort.

      I guess since Marathon is ancient at this point Bungie just was to use the title in whichever way possible so they can deepen their claws on the name.

      Marketing centers around trying to enrapture people into believing they're part of something bigger by buying a product. Old names that had any success whatsoever are a goldmine for this because people will just believe that this is some prestigious series they want to be part of. No they won't ever play or watch the old things that they actually don't care about. Bungie has to be one of the most dishonest companies it's kind of amazing how their ability to maintain a AAA pipeline just keeps getting them business regardless of the game quality or management

          The games been free for a while, it had a slight resurgence when it got a source port.

          Well both Prey games were kino in spite of how different they were and the outrage about the name. I hope it's a similar situation.

          Same, but Prey 2017 was a rare anomaly where the game surpassed the original in different ways.

          Prey's situation just made me sad because losing out on Prey 2 AND people bashing Arkane's Prey because of the name despite it being an excellent game made me quite mad for some time.
          This one is even worse because this time it isn't a publisher forcing a name onto a developer, it is the developer themselves doing it.

          I felt the same way, wish they had called it something else just on the off chance they decided to do something with the original prey/prey 2 storyline.
          I get the feeling this isn't the original people behind the old marathon titles pushing this (think they must've all fucked off by now) but the middle managers who inherited the IP and thought it'd be good to drag it out for a quick buck. Hope I'm wrong.

          Prey (2017) is a good game

          Don't disagree, wish they had called it something else just so the old series at least had a possible chance in the future.

    I don't fucking understand. Halo got as popular as it did because the campaigns complimented the multiplayer so well. If it was a multiplayer only game, I truly believe it would not have been nearly as influential as it was. I remember being so hyped for Destiny, and then it just turned out to be a borderlands clone where most of the "story" was divulged through text descriptions on items and shit. I was super excited to see a Marathon trailer today, didn't even know their was a PS showcase. Trailer looked great and then I find out it's extraction PvP shooter only. Why can't these fuckers make a campaign to go with that? They've been trying to make a new Marathon ever since leaving Microsoft, part of their agreement when Activision owned them was that they'd be able to make a new Marathon after the Destiny games. All these fucking years and we get a fucking PvP game for one of the more interesting FPS settings? Insane.

        Yea... It's just a hard pill for me to swallow. Laugh at baby's first shooter all you want, but Halo 2 was the first M game I convinced my parents to get me when I was like 11-12, I unironically wrote an essay explaining how the content was barely above a T game. I adored everyone of the Bungie Halo campaigns. Spent a lot of time playing the multiplayer too, but the story and characters is what truly made Halo special to me. When I was going through my "I wanna be a vidya developer" phase, I always dreamed of working at Bungie. I should have known they were dead and truly gone after how they fucked over Marty O'Donnell. Oh well at least they'll NEVER be as bad as 343. Fuck those retards.

      You people don't understand Bungie is arguably worse than Bobby Kottick and EA when it comes to microtransactions and raping their IPs but for some reason they get a break probably because Zoomers give them infinite cred because of Halo 2 and 3 release nights.

      Escape from Tarkov

      Anonymous

      You go into a map, try to get as much loot as you can, and get out. If you die, all the stuff you had (including the equipment that you brought with you when you start a game) is gone. You usually encounter other players that you can kill to get their loot.
      In essence, it's escape from tarkov.

      You load into a map usually with X amount of other players and you do missions and pick up loot. When you want to leave the game you have to run to an area where you can exfil/extract and you bring whatever you found back home with you. You can kill other players and sometimes you can even befriend them mid-match and work together (this varies from game to game) If you die however you lose everything you started the match with (guns, items, sometimes even your character themselves) and everything you found during that match and you get sent back to the lobby and have to use a different character or set of weapons and items assuming you have any left in your home storage. Hope this helped you understand.

      The Marathon trilogy was sort of shit from a gameplay standpoint. It really was an issue that sort of went on to plague everything Bungie did afterward. The issue of the game being barely passable and carried by music or story. Slow, plodding, barely reactive. No dynamism. No feel of being in the action. But that's the case with most FPS games. Most games, really.

        The lack of dynamism is something addressed by certain games like Far Cry 3+ and Dying Light, but they always sort of gate the fun shit behind skill trees where you need to play 75% of the game to get the fun shit or they have it where you either land the fancy shit or simply die.

        Tarkov is very good what's the problem?

        The entire games industry is about to experience a generation that desperately wants to live and has no patience for digital entertainment. It's going to be catastrophic and hilarious as most of those affected aren't even going to realize what's happening or how it could happen. It'll be very, very sudden. Their lack of tact shows here. You had Mandalore spark renewed interest in Marathon. So what do they do? They announce an anti-Marathon game. It's exactly, exactly like the Nosgoth PvP game that flopped. They had a potential audience in spite of everything and they fucked it up.

      I’ve been aware of it for years, spent some time spoiling myself on the marathonstory website but I’m ashamed to say I’ve never made it more than halfway through Marathon 1 way back when Aleph One included some weird Pathways into Darkness shit in the first level. With this trailer and after hearing that Aleph One finally received support for higher framerates I might revisit it, unless the Mandalore fanboys forced some additional inaccurate changes into the source port.

        I mean overall, but yeah Destiny is a pretty big dip in quality.

        This is my attitude also. Destiny pvp has been duct taped to their pve looter game so it's been trash until they straight up stopped making it. Since their approach from the get go with marathon is pvp I think they could do something good. Their shooting mechanics are on point. Sure the Marathon IP was sacrificed but it was already dead so I'm not sure what the big deal is there. Maybe it's because AAA studios have already killed all my favorite IPs and I'm numb to it?

        Yeah, the Marathon IP/story was long since wrapped up ("Oh shit, its all a game. lmao." - Durandal/Thoth). The only one from that original team that I'm aware is in that office is Jason Jones.
        Between the various art pieces, in-game sprites, and the armor references in Halo, I dig the new look. The music from the trailer feels like a nice callback to the BGM from M1.

        Who is this even fucking for? Marathon is a cult classic, it's not a huge brand. The very few people who remember the Marathon trilogy (e.g. me) don't want this, and to the normies and especially the zoomers to whom they're going to have to sell this it might as well be a brand new IP. So why not just make it a brand new IP???

          This game isn't for marathonfags. It's for Tarkovfags and casuals. They literally only used the name because they liked the sound of Marathon for their extraction shooter. I'd wager nostalgiabait is low on the list of reasoning when the game was niche to begin with and a separate subgenre of FPS entirely. I don't see it as a big deal. Sacrificing a small niche community from the 90s is not important. Not only that. OG marathonfags already know the series was dead. It concluded. This isn't Marathon. We all agree. I just don't see it as significant. Reboots are a dime a dozen in the current year.

      Marathon is meant to be Halo but far more dark. Battleroids are Spartans but instead of children they are reanimated combination of frankenstein dead bodies. A single one of these wiped out an entire human colony.
      The Pfhor is the Covenant but a slave trafficking space empire willing to release Chaos Gods in case they lose. They even do hardcore shit like taking human bodies, replicate them as someone you know, strapping them with bombs, and then cruelly kill people by blasting them with said suicide bomb artificial humans.

        Halo is no less dark, it's just less overt. Flood isn't exactly a cute fluffy thing, and the complaints the Gravemind proclaims implicate all sorts of things, as does its existence. Trace the line back far enough, and more horrors shall be.

          For me, the Grave Mind was a more tangible and understandable version of the W'rkncacnter (despite the Flood also being a scrapped Marathon concept). A shame most of the times Bungie tried to have Halo be more dark in an interesting way had to be cut such scenes due to dev time constraints, like Chief originally melting Captain Keyes' face off with a flamethrower and carrying his skull in Gravemind.

            Not counting 343 lore, Gravemind is basically a complex living non-living information entity that exists in some general overarching position to reality, and occasionally gets released into it, morally questionable, malicious and, interestingly enough, grumpy. It's closer to normal life.
            Wr'kncacnter is appears to be far closer to Cthulhu Mythos in a more direct fashion.
            It's an out of bounds entity that doesn't belong in the orderly universe, yet exists in it, which makes it either a property that grew in it or existed in it since it's beginning, or a direct supernatural property, a protrusion of primordial chaos turned to evil or some demonic force.

        Are you new to Ganker? Most people here don’t play anything that isn’t the most popular video games and just pretend to be in crowds. Marathon is an obscure 20+ year old shooter on a dead platform. Its not some massive sacred franchise. We never discuss it unless an eceleb pulls it from the depths than suddenly all the marathon lore heads come out of the wetworks to be obnoxious before disappearing again. I can assure you 99/100 of them read wikis and never even completed a single marathon game. Thats how this board works. Its funny that all of these fucking super hardcore marathon bros that materialized out of thin air that are super into marathon and everything about it also just happen to not know that a new game being a extraction shooter wasn’t leaked a fucking year ago. Or how despite suddenly half of Ganker is super INTO MARATHON AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN I NEVER ONCE IN THE 9 YEARS I BEEN HERE SEEN A SINGLE MARATHON GAME IN ANYONES 3x3 OR TOP 5 OR WHATEVER FAGGY SHIT YOU moronS COME UP WITH NEXT.

Just because it doesn't get as many threads on this shit hole as your fotm title that doesn't mean it doesn't have people who played it and enjoyed it in the past. The games been fucking free for anyone to play for decades and anyone with a cursory attitude to old shooters outside of Doom/Quake and who has heard of Halo has at least booted it up at some point.

                I never once seen a marathon game in 1000s of 3x3 or even in a single top 10 or even brought up when someone asks shooter suggestions.
                The games just almost doesn’t exist unless an eceleb discusses it or this thread.
                Almost like most “marathon fans” played a few levels of one of them, dropped it, heard how cool the story is and read up on it like most people do because the actual gameplay of these games especially 1 are fucking annoying, and not really special outside the shotgun in 2/physics shit.

        there was never gonna be a sequel or proper reboot anyway, they're using the same sorely because they have the rights to the ip and that's it. There's no sanctity or sacred thing about a game for a videogame or movie, you guys are actually mad that this makes you think very directly about a beloved niche franchise being dead for good 100% confirmed and the current industry. Also some weird hate for early-mid 2000's y2k aesthetics

        I unironically, seriously think Marathon is 1000x better than Durandal. The only parts of Durandal I enjoyed were the more claustrophobic space ship levels, otherwise I thought it was awkward and boring. I even love the shitty puzzles in Marathon, I even love the shitty claustrophobic hallways, I even love that absolute fucking retard level where Durandal makes you embrace his suffering in door/elevator opening service, it all adds to the feeling of the game. Marathon is a genuine 8/10 game, Durandal is 6/10 slop.

The schizo story doesn't appeal to me either, whereas 1's story perfectly matched my personal power fantasies.

          The build-up of going around the Marathon to being alone on the Pfhor ship was very well done and nothing like that exists in the later two games, but I still like Durandal and Infinity more. You are legitimately coping if you think Colony Ship For Sale is anything more than an awful attempt to pad out the game's playtime.
