Rather go back to Unreal Tournament 2004.

Posted by Phatmac

This doesn't look appealing to me. :/

I want PlatformMania where it's just one gigantic, ever-going platformer game.

Posted by MeatSim

With a game called ShootMania you think you would be shooting more and at a faster rate.

Posted by Trilogy

I'm not ready to write it off so soon. It seems like it has potential. It all rides on how much control and options players have to shape their own servers. Hopefully it's a lot more broad then what was shown in the QL.

@simkas: same here. I just registered my interest on their site.

Looks really inferior to Quake 3. Guess they want to follow how Trackmania works but I dont think it really transfers well to a FPS game.

Edited by PsychoPenguin

It seems like they decided they wanted it fast and simple so they gave everyone two health "bits" and then realized that they needed to restrict the projectle speed and ammo so that people weren't just constantly getting killed. It's never fun to just get shot in the back with no warning and to not be able to hit someone because your bullets are slow.

I think it would be better if they upped the health and bullet speed so that you coul notice you were being shot, have time to turn around and actually fight someone instead of just following random dudes, hoping a shot connects like it seemed that Jeff was doing most of the time. This does not look fun at all with the current mechanics. Hopefully they change it before the final release.

This game needs music badly. Trackmania without Cher and stupid dubstep is half a game.

Posted by megalowho

Custom music will improve this game exponentially. Looking forward to seeing what the community does with the tools, at the very least.

I was waiting for this game, but not so much anymore. The idea of a  Quake-style game within a modern framework is interesting, but they don't seem to deliver.

it looks like poorman's Tribes Ascend

Jeff's email at 22:48 lol.

Posted by deerokus

Haha, for some reason shooters which default to arrow keys instead of WASD are always... odd.

Posted by Nephrahim

Yeah, this game doesn't look good. I thought so since I saw it being hyped by E-sports guys.

It seems to be trying to capture some kind of old school Quake feeling, but it doesn't do a great job at that, end even if it did I'm not sure I would love it...

@triviaman09: Don't tell Jeff that

Posted by DarkbeatDK

I applaud them for trying to create something that's not a clone of something else.

Posted by FunExplosions

Holy shit this is boring.

Posted by Baggykins

so when do we have the fun?

Posted by Pudge

I love that Jailbreak is already in this game apparently (from other articles I've looked up, it seems to be a default option built in). I've always wondered why more shooters didn't steal this mode, it's one of my favorite FPS game types of all time. If the guns were more variable, I would be all over this.

Jeff's mouse sensitivity seems really high. In a game with such limited ammo and health, accuracy will be a really important factor and lower mouse sensitivity generally allows for higher accuracy.

Also, I don't think it looks boring at all. I can really appreciate giving the users so much power in terms of content creation and the way the game sort of distills down online shooters to such a small number of skills.

Posted by Bistromath

If one gun is good enough for Big Jeffery, drop 'em.

Posted by NeoCalypso

@DarkbeatDK: Yeah....but the result was something almost completely devoid of personality.

Posted by LiquidSword

Played the beta for a few days now and its interesting, but they don't seem to quite deliver. If they make some changes by release I might get it but right now I'll just stick with quake live for my arena fix

Posted by 49th

I actually really like how this looks. It seems to emphasise skill more than anything, and the fact that you have basically infinite maps and potential game modes is great.

Posted by Redsox44

Reminds of Tron, man I would love a Tron game like this.

Posted by MAD_JIHAD

Well I guess this saves me the time of installing this beta lol.

Posted by SoloReX

Where dio you sign up for the beta? Or is the sign-up period over?

quakelive.com

but on a nicer note i cant wait for crazy maps and bad music.

Edited by Bistromath

The storm aesthetic makes me uncomfortable; every match looks like The Nothing is about to show up.

Posted by Ballskin

Jeff is secretly Jerry Seinfeld proof at 27:10 check it out folks you heard it here first

Finally! The second golden age of Jeff and Vinny talking.

Luckily the guy on the obstacle course server spelled out in detail how to make that early jump. No, really, it was in the chat on screen.

Posted by EternalHaV0C

The first 3 minutes of the video is fantastic.

Posted by Sputty

I agree with Jeff about the, uh, weapon. It's not very satisfying or fun to use

I'm hoping that user made stuff will improve the game

Why would you, when you can just regurgitate a retarded joke!

Posted by LOLandOrder

What about hats??

Posted by JNeam

For a moment there I thought Jeff was going play to trackmania the whole time.

For a while...
Posted by dr_mantas

Yay, I saw somebody from Lithuania playing, I know Trackmania was somewhat popular here as well.

Posted by phantomzxro

I don't know what it is but all i keep thinking this shootmania would be a cool basic start to a tron multiplayer game. Just change the weapon to tron disks that can bounce off walls and things and add a charged attack and a way to block.

Posted by Curious_George

The map and game mode variety is pretty cool. Also, a decent map editor is always a boon. But I'm not feeling the actual combat at all. Movement seems slow and awkward for an arena style game and the weapons are all terrible. I couldn't see myself enjoying this in its current state.

I would have rather watched that.

Jeff and Vinny combo and the volume isn't ridiculously low?! 
 
 
Today is the greatest day for video games.

Posted by BenderUnit22

This seems dumb. Like someone stripped Unreal Tournament of any complexity like pick up management and wall-jumping to sell it for 20 bucks.

Posted by mercury228

Meh 

Posted by MrBubbles

well i'm interested but i'm with jeff when it comes to shooting i'm all about dumping so i hope by release they include a way to modify the shooting so you could shoot as much as you want or have a longer time before you have to recharge. on a side note the weapon recharge in the rail gun match did make sense and i was ok with that.

Posted by doe3879

Somehow it's not crazy, rather boring in many ways. From a viewing perspective at least.
