    This is good news to me. I think it kicks *** that they are listening to the oldschoolers and UT lovers.
    This will give the new game a lot more residual value if they can pull it off. Not like 2k* that got some
    UT players (that a lot eventually went back to UT) and a bunch of newbie game hoppers that have since left for UT some other game.

    And I give the hugest respect to Steve Polge. I used to read his writings on Unreal & UT like the bible.
    He is a brilliant man, who can and apparrently will get UT back on track.

    Improved UT .... ****in - A :up:

      Meh... they've already flip- flopped things around so much there's no point looking to the past IMO. About the only way forward is to mix it all up yet again. In other words:

      If they look at UT and UT2k3 as polar extremes and try to find the middle- ground in between, they're cheating the game. What they ought to do is see UT as A, UT2k3 as B and for their next trick bring us C... and VCTF, too . That should keep a decent chunk of the vets interested as well as maintaining some sort of viability in the marketplace at large.

      And as far as the Luddites in the community go, I'm getting a little tired of the ritual veneration of UE1. Yeah, Unreal was a blow- me- away experience, and yeah UT put me onto a 5 year videogame jones the likes of which I never imagined I'd see. But...

      UE2 wasn't chopped liver, you know. UT2k3 had some unfortunate problems, but I didn't find it wholely unenjoyable. UT2k4 refined that iteration of the game into something which IMHO is quite kickass. While 2k4 didn't find the commercial megasuccess we'd all like to see, it did reasonably OK. A year in (a long time in a now supersaturated online gaming market), I still go looking for games and I still find them... and there are still n00bs to boot, so it's nowhere near dead. In large part that's thanks to ONS, which ought to tell you that innovation -- which put Epic on the map to begin with -- is what keeps this franchise alive.

      So the attitude that "the original UT is solid gold and all else is p00p" gets a bit tiresome after a while, even as much as I enjoyed that game.

      Re: U2. Yeah, that was a shame. Shouldn't have broken from the original storyline I agree, and probably shouldn't have been so loosely farmed out. AND would've been a bigger success with XMP included out of the box, but there you go. The primarily- online style of game became Epic's bread and butter in 1999 and is likely to remain that way.

      ... That's what I was going to say...

        I didn't just read your mind, I plagiarized it. I am bad.

        We'll see. The weapons and xloc will probably still be nerfed, the doublejump will be back, seamless loading = now even bigger maps (if you can believe it) so people will still yell about the player scale being "all wrong," the static meshes will now be even more detailed ("FFS I can't see squat!!"), we probably won't get the ripper back, goo is getting weirdified, vehicles will continue to rampage across the landscape, the new terrain will continue to make movement crazy, and where this whole "projectilemania" thing is going is anybody's guess.

        I expect we're going to see a (yet another) new game. I'm pretty stoked about that, really, but the downside is that now we'll get to listen to not just the ravings of disaffected UT99 players, but the tortured cries of the Q3 converts who still miss the boostdodge as well. At least they'll finally have something to agree on.

        Who knows, maybe it'll be my turn to hate it... I kind of doubt it, though. Been having a blast so far.

          :down: Wrong! The single player mode on UT was great. Epic spoilt it by making player No. 1 target for every bloody bot that happens to be able to see you! I never had to put up with being in a room with several bots and have them all target me in UT. :sour: I do now!

            Boo hoo. Buck up, it builds character. :haha:

            SP has sucked *** on every single UT series game and will likely continue to do so.

            NEXT.

                Well... I'm glad that somebody finally recognizes my authority.

                And now, sirrah, I would like you to kindly go and explain your position to that flak- toting, wallhacking AI sumbiscuit that's always waiting at the double door exit to the flagbase on CTF-Coret.

                Bots have always been BS, don't try to BS a BSer.




                YOU PLAY LIKE A GIRL!!!!
