This is going to be awesome.
Balls. Could have had it.
Is Apogee stil alive... hope this still holds up
This looks..... disappointing...
Didnt like the original back in the day... hopefully this is better.
Random PC Game for ROTT please so I won't be tempted to buy it on gog...
Man for a game with so much ridiculous shit going on in it, this sure looks joyless :-( I remember ROTT being way more juicy than this.
Graphics seem about 7 years out of date.
Hope God Mode is intact.
ugh.. this makes duke 3d look good
The best part about this trailer was the Apogee logo. Genuine nostalgia chills right there, if only it had come spinning from behind the planet.
The mid-90's called. They want their game design back.
Well it sure looks pretty terrible.
Genuinely excited about this.
That looked awful!! No thanks!!
Ummm... you know what this is, right?
At least some of those reload animations looked kinda neat, right guys?
The only thing I liked about this trailer is the music, and that's only because I've been in love with Goin' Down the Fast Way since day one.
Almost everything about this vid reminded me of the countless WoW PvP movies I've watched.
Not so sure about this one. I don't like how they insist on putting gun reloading in all FPSes these days, really kills the momentum in fast paced old school games like this (iirc you only reloaded the pistol in the original, like in Duke 3D). That's certainly not the only problem I see in this trailer, but that is one post-Counter-Strike FPS game mechanic I think the genre should've moved past at this point. I find it much more annoying than health kits ever were, and that apparently was so bothersome that people thought it'd be appropriate to go for regenerating health instead. Why not do the same with ammo, regenerating ammo and maybe use weapon heat is the reason for not shooting continuously (like Hard Reset did it)?
All I wanna know is....
Are the date-specific easter eggs still in?
no fucking thank you. that was jank city right there.
well i can't wait to play it and see if it's any good.
I have no context for this, so it looks like Duke meets Wolfenstein.
I'd only buy it if it comes with the original!
God I fucking love RotT. I don't even care if this sucks, I'll play that shit.
I'm going to assume that every single person in these comments who said "that looked awful" was born after 1996, because that looked like EXACTLY what I want Rise of the Triad to be!
Fucking. Stoked. As. Fuck.
So where are the Triads?
@BombKareshi: They put up the full track here:
Honestly, I'm pumped about this game. Wicked $15 (official price, not a rumor) fun with fast multiplayer, free DLC (also confirmed), and UE3 mod support (with Steam Workshop support). I love it.
I love how one of the clips was just a shot of one of those disc shaped floating platforms from the original.
The rock Apogee intro is fantastic.
Oh good, a Duke Nukem without the brand recognition.
this is a joke right?
I want Blake Stone HD.
I like it!
looks like poop
The trolls are out in full force today, aren'cha? Go back to whatever hole you crawled out of.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
Just me or does this look a bit like Duke Nukem Forever?
Christ you people. Just let me have my old school shooters. You can go play whatever shit you want, just let me have the games I want. This is the most fun looking shooter I've seen since Hard Reset.
Looks dope as hell.
The mix of old music and new graphics makes this trailer INCREDIBLY AWESOME.
Man, FPS were so much better back in the 90's. They were FUN, they had style, the developers behind them had ambition and were constantly in an arms race to be the next Doom or Quake - they weren't content to merely live up to the other games in the genre, they were out to genuinely blow their competitors away....they didn't all reuse the same boring, skill-free game mechanics, the same boring "real world" weapons, the same generic "incredibly linear bombed out city" settings, the same boring human enemies....god, today's shooters fucking suck. More importantly, judging by the comments here, today's shooter FANS fucking suck. Morons. You Xbox kiddies are the worst thing to happen to gaming, I swear.
Glad to see Rise of the Triad return. It's completely unexpected, but awesome all the same. Now, id, Apogee, get someone to remake Hexen, will you? And whoever owns the rights to Powerslave; that would be appreciated too.
I ran out of pants to change into thanks to this trailer.
I want to see what dog mode looks like in this, also! :D
This getting made renews my hope for a Redneck Rampage remake :)
I'll withhold judgement on this until I see a little bit more but 14 year old me is definitely excited. Now let's see if further info gets 33 year old me excited too.
Completely different company. The original Apogee LTD is 3DRealms. They are the same company. 3DRealms is still a company, they still exist.
This new Apogee LLC is a completely new company with new staff, and none of the people from the original Apogee. But due to certain legal aspects, they are allowed to act under the original title and use certain IPs that 3DRealms allowed them.
I miss Apogee... I still find dust covered copies of "Apogee's Greatest Games" laying around my parents house.
