Shootmania: Storm announcement trailer
Damn, this looks amazing I'm really looking forward to this game.
Cyber knights, yay! It's like medieval Tron. Too bad there isn't any gameplay here.
There seems to be only one weapon and location capture as a game mode.
At the end of the video (2:24) the red guy seems to use a different weapon, seems kinda like the railgun (instant hit) but I doubt its a regular gun, otherwise everyone would use it, right?
Edge had a preview of the game a few months ago and to be honest I didn't like what they were saying all that much. There are only 2 weapons in game and one of those (the rail gun - apparently a 1 hit kill) can only be used when standing on a "rail block," the default weapon fires 4 "FPS rocket speed" projectiles before having to recharge, the idea being to emphasise close quarters combat over range by making it really hard to kill someone at range unless you're on a rail block.
The rest of what they covered didn't make it sound terrible but I can't see myself playing this.
Trackmania benefits from very simple mechanics and a focus on player skill rather than item pick-ups/perks, looks like they've applied the same ideas here. Could be interesting.
Essentially taking the twitch gameplay from a Counter Strike and applying them to the fucking insane levels from Quake.
When they said shooter, I kept imagining like multiplayer PixelJunk Shooter. I guess this could be alright. I really loved playing instagib in UT, so I wouldn't really mind a whole game based around that. Also, there aren't that many arena shooter anymore, so it could be fun in that respect.
