A game I'd like to see is an actual good Warhammer 40,000 game. Not that I actually play warhammer, but the books are good, and it seems like they could make a great game out of them. Unfortunately, they always come out with the strategy type games. Not that I don't like that type of game, I do. I'd just like to see them come out with one that played like Gears of War. In fact, the Gears of War characters kind of look like Space Marines anyway. It seems like you could set a one player or co op game in the Horus Heresy setting of the books rather easily. Give players the option of what legion to be a part of. Advance in rank etc.

It also seems like you could make a pretty beastly mmo out of it if you set it in the current setting of the book, let people originally chose what chapter(ie Dark Angels, Space Wolves) or home world(ie Fenris) they'd like to start from and originally group players together like that. As more people get involved, allow players to dtart their own chapters(clans). Set rules like if you attack another imperial chapter your chapter is automaticall viewed as corrupted by chaos and you become Chaos Space Marines. Seems like it would pretty fun to me anyway.

Actually, the stuff I posted about Halo 3 was from a play through that the guys at EGM had done with the Halo staff. They didn't get to see any of the single player, but all the multi player info was first hand from them, not speculation or just what they had been told. They actually had some very interesting screen shots as well. I'll see if I can find the magazine and post some of the other stuff they were talking about.

ironman4579
04-26-2007, 06:10 PM
Ha, I just realized I posted that info in the Halo 3 thread, not in this thread. Here's the post from that thread:

Supposedly they tried to make some changes to multiplayer so that the levels were less open. I guess they were tired of people just going for the sniper rifle on certain levels and waxing anyone that wandered into the open. I've also seen a new vehicle, basically an ATV that one member drives while the other can carry the flag on the back etc. The developers called it, "riding brokeback." I guess they've also added something like gun turrets to the outer edges of some levels, so if you stray too close, you get greased. I guess they also have some kind of anti grav cannon at each base, so you can launch back into the middle of a level rather than have to run all the way through it, and you can launch some vehicles. Of course, this info is all at least a few months old, so they could have changed a bunch of stuff.

I heard it was bad.

Anyone hear about that RTS game by Tom Clancy? I think it is called EndWar. Looks BA.

Why do they even bother making Movie video games. It's pathetic when you know it's going to suck before hearing anything about it.

Looks amazing.

IGN: There have been hints that faces from old Tom Clancy titles will make an appearance. How do the Ghosts, Team Rainbow and Splinter Cell fit in?

De Plater: We definitely have a few surprises in store for our loyal Tom Clancy fans! But we are going to save that for another time. Stay tuned…

How cool would that be to deploy Sam Fisher to take out an enemy stronghold single handedly. :)

A trailer for Endwar, set to music. Obviously all prerendered, but it still looks pretty good.

So a few weeks ago I had to send back the power supply for my XBox 360 because it went bad. It was under warranty, so I had to send it in and they would send me a new one. Well, I got the new one today, and what do you ******* know, there's no plug to you know... plug it in. WHAT-THE-****??? I am on hold with their helpless desk trying to figure out how the **** someone makes that kind of mistake...

I know for the oringial x box / ps2 / dreamcast you could just use any power wire. Can you use any of those, assuming you have one of those, to plug into your power supply?

Yea. I saw that a few months ago. They had a preview for it in PSM. Obviously more of the details are fleshed out now though. It's actually supposed to have a very interesting storyline.

The newest EGM also has a huge writeup of the new Soul Calibur 4 game for PS3/360 that's coming out in like late '08/early '09. It looks great, and since it's my favorite series of fighting games ever, I'm really looking forward to it.

bio shock will be a great game i saw the first couple videos for it when it was anncounced.. i really like the idea.. although the weapons i have seen... dont really impress me or make me want to play really.. thats the only thing i dont like about the game

I kind of got the feeling the weapons were almost secondary to the powers you can aquire. But you can also add things to your weapons throughout the game supposedly to make them more powerful.

Because of a leak the first Killzone 2 screen shot came out, and it is no where near the CGI trailer that was shown two years ago.

Not surprising, since anyone who wasn't a sheep realized that the E3 '05 trailer was obviously not a real indication of the game.

I guess the lighting effect is pretty good, although I was never a big Killzone fan anyway. I'm still looking forward to Army of Two. They've added a pretty interesting new "aggro" element to it that should add some more strategy to it.

Sony made a big mistake by setting a standard that they could not achieve, when they debuted the PS3. Even if Killzone 2 and Motorstorm look great, they couldn't possibly live up to the CGI trailers that Sony swore up and down that they were "real."

well to be fair though that makes me wonder if they could actually accomplish on this system.. if they can get close to this at any point i will be so happy... although ya they set themselves up for a fall

ya thats about what it will probably end up being.. but you never know.. the problem is to get graphics like that it takes a long time to program.. meanign games are takign more time developing.. which means less games are out.. which means less profits.. which is why i thnk they are reluctant to do it..

still wether its teh graphics as advertised or not.. the graphics are still incredible for a gaming system.. i mean i just played techmo bowl.. the graphics have come a long long way

Personally, I care less about graphics than gameplay and storyline. I realize that the casual gamer is drawn in by pretty graphics, but if the gameplay sucks, what's the point. One of my favorite games ever is Final Fantasy Tactics, and it's not like that was exactly groundbreaking visually. Having said that, great looks definately add to the overall feel of a game, without question.

for me its the gameplay aswell.. but i enjoy games a lot more with wicked story lines attached.. i copuld play those ones for so much longer.. liek a good book.. you want to keep goign further cause you want to know what happens you know... graphics are an added feature.. while nice and adds to realism.. i agree. if it sucks to play then ill trash it
