While the game looks like it could be a tone of fun. I'm not sure of their marketing goal to promote it as an esport, as I just don't see a 1v4 game supporting pro players.

This game will live and die on its match making and ranking systems. My fear is because it is not coming from a company like valve, there won't be a commitment to the long term tuning that is required to make a game like this work.

That esports commentary is terrible. The ending deserves a razzie.

looks fun but man, don't hire a guy to commentate when he has to feign excitement

The game looks great. The announcer can go straight to hell.

Looks amazing, kinda what a proper Jurassic park game should be . Just a bunch of dudes hunting a T - Rex

Will live or die based on having friends.

Yeah.. " OH CUTTING THE FEED"

Fuck you and your ONLY ON OUR CHANNEL bullshit.

Posted by Sackmanjones

Game looks great, the commentary isn't necessary. I recognize the guy from Dota streams, he is actually very good at announcing but this game really doesn't call for that.

Posted by mrfluke

that commentary is terrible, but i get it i guess ?

as its a little bit different than a typical narrated gameplay video.

, but the game looks really cool

Posted by bk

I don't like how they're making it look like an esport. Stick to Dota, Aysee!

Posted by kittenmittns

so far this looks like something I would want to play with friends. The design seems like it could get really repetitious. I can just see the matches a few months past release. Hardcore players will just drop the Goliath in minutes and the game is over. Balancing will be pretty important to make this something I would continue to come back to.

OH SHIT AYESEE GOING BIG COMMENTATING ON ALL THE REAL ESPORTS

Game looks like fun, but that guy...I want to punch him. If he's considered a good esports commentator then esports commentary has desperately low standards.

My experience with this at PAX East is kinda back-and-forth in my head. On one hand I really like the idea, style, and generally how it plays (although I only played the medic), on the other hand it seems like a game that can be not very fun when you're learning.

My match consisted of the four of us hunters searching for the monster around the map for about 10 minutes not finding him, and once we did he ran away again. Then once the monster had maxed his level he proceeded to mop the floor with us very quickly.

I can see myself liking this game, and complaining about balance in a pre-release version of a game is silly thing, but man did it feel one sided (and maybe it should be?)

While I was waiting in line they brought back four players that had been killing the monsters in their games consistently so they could face a developer controlling the monster. While the hunters fought the monster for a long time, almost non-stop fighting during the "final battle", they did end up losing. I didn't see any hunters win their match my whole time at PAX East.

Did he really say "foil-age"?

Posted by pondwhale

At least this is engaging to watch without any knowledge of the deeper mechanics and systems, the majority of e-sports doesn't appeal to me because I don't play DOTA or Starcraft and don't have time to figure out what makes the high level strategy interesting. I really enjoyed Tribes: Ascent as an e-sport, before it basically dissolved, because the skill of the players was obvious on the surface level. Not that these players seem especially skilled, and the whole staged vibe is difficult to ignore, but I would watch this, with a proper commentator.

FOIL AGE

Posted by sionweeks

Commentary pls :(

Posted by Roboculus92

I'm remaining cautiously optimistic but as of now it looks quite interesting.

Posted by ghostyTrickster

Game looks fun but if they're trying to take this into eSports I'm disinterested. 4v1 also makes it impossible to be a successful eSport title.

Edited by L33T_HAXOR

It looks like it might be fun, but this is coming out around the same time as Destiny, right? I'm pretty sure my time and money will go to Destiny.

Posted by OneKillWonder_

This game looks fucking rad, but some of that commentary was real hard to listen to.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

This is what a Predators game should be like

Posted by HyperionXR

Nope.

Posted by kishinfoulux

I feel like I don't want to buy this on principle just for the awful fucking commentary. Fuck off with that shit. Stop trying to make everything E-Sports.

Anyways I dunno it seems cool I guess, but this is a game that will really be determined by balance and if they don't nail that between the monster and the hunters this game is fucked.

Posted by tomgun

Managed to play it at the gadget show UK a couple of weeks ago. I was the monster and won a bit too easily I thought, and speaking to couple of other people who played as the monster they found the same. I guess it will take a little learning to play as the four human classes, but wasn't blown away. It was only one game, so I definitely need to play it more to get a better idea of its depth but feel it's getting too much hype.... That's the way it goes I suppose.

So is this gonna be in Esports?!

"foilage"

edit: man, none of this is on a script at all.

I used to be really excited about this game. Now it's apparent to me that it's not for me anymore.

What do you mean? Turtle Rock is making this. Turtle Rock is owned by Valve. They made the original Left 4 Dead, ffs.

Edit: Oh, never mind. They got shut down and then re-opened as "non valve". That sucks :(

Edit2: That killed any hope I had about this game :(

Looks interesting but if they try and keep an E-Sports vibe on it... sod that.

That's a valid point looking at it from what we've seen here, but plenty of pro teams have 5 starters (thinking LoL here) and you could easily have teams with someone that "mains" Goliath and 4 people for the respective human roles, they just happen to not all play concurrently. I'm not saying it's likely, but it's not that far a stretch from what currently exists.

Posted by Rocospi

Did they really need to shoutcast this game? It's like it's jumping up and down, trying to convince people that it's esports.

This is a really good point! I don't understand how this would be an esport at all.

The asynchronous style the teams would have to use means that you would never have all five players on at the same time. Would you then be broadcasting lone dudes who just play the monster? Teams of hunters you're supposed to follow? It's neither the 1-1 tension of a fighting game nor the team tactics of a moba or shooter.

I really wish they'd focused on have really great moments and stories rather than trying to make a competitive focused game that doesn't match the core concept. Also, how many maps are there?

Posted by Hadoken101

Man, the game itself looks really cool and like something I'd want to play, but god damn that E-sports commentary made the game feel so shallow and soulless. I don't understand the need for every competitive multiplayer game to be pushed as E-sports. Can't a multiplayer game just be a fun thing friends can play together? Why do I need someone with a fake "sports caster" voice feign excitement and explain pretty obvious stuff that's going on.

Posted by mokotronics

Has potential, but the presentation is painfully out of touch.

WE KNOW WHEN YOU'RE FORCING IT!

Posted by Mr_Creeper

I love how everyone's freaking out over a video with e-sports like commentary over it like it's gonna be ran over every game you play.

Posted by Itwongo

The monster looked kinda disproportionately weak compared to the hunters up until the last couple minutes.

Posted by Adaptor

Did he really say "foil-age"?

He did. *cringe*

Posted by Edmundus

This has so much potential, really hope it fulfils it. Very interested to see what the other monsters will look/play like.
