I'm into it!

There's something about this "Mania" line of games I find really appealing. Also, the red guy owning everyone reminded me of the laser tag scene from StarShip Troopers.

Run Mania more like

Looks cooler than I was expecting.

So long as the quality of dubstep is painfully low I AM IN.

Posted by Zooey74

Plus the team balancing seems slightly off at the end. Does look suitably cool/stupid tho.

Posted by UlquioKani

So many dudes on screen. Seems pretty cool

Posted by yoshisaur

Looked like a lot of fun.

Posted by forkboy

Well the music in the trailer seems appropriately bad

Yes I think it will have potential. However potential will be DLC.

Posted by Gav47

Yes, I am down for this.

Dubstep? Check.

Guys I can now confirm this is a proper Mania game.

Poor Jeff...

Another server to upkeep.

I love that it has dubstep.

Normally it's annoying hearing dubstep in every commercial, but for this it couldn't possibly be anything else.

This game looks nanners. There's a lot of stuff in the level design in the trailer that looks kind of... tracky, if that makes sense. I can definitely see how the track editor tools could transfer over to make shooter maps that look like the on in the trailer.

I might have to get into the mania games. Goddamn you for doing this to me, Jeff. I blame you personally.

I think I'm in love with this game already, been waiting so long for a fast paced game like UT...

Posted by GeekDown

So this actually looks cool...I did not expect that.

THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING TRAILER FOR A VIDEO GAME

I'm in

@AlexanderSheen: And he has to find more dubstep.

It looks like quake, but there are only rocket launchers

Sold!

Somewhere, deep within the Giant Bomb base in CBS Towers, Jeff is laughing maniacally while counting all his Planets...

Posted by holybins

I hope there is a bit more variety to the environments, unlike TrackMania 2. Count me in as one of surprised "wow, this actually looks pretty cool" crowd.

Calm down people, this is drum and bass, not dubstep.

Dubstep is slower and has a different rhythm. Anything with wobble bass isn't dubstep.

It sucks that I've resorted to using the Youtube version of these videos for best video quality and consistency.

Dubstep also draws heavy inspiration from dub and two-step, neither of which present in this video, or what most people refer to as dubstep.

Dying from one shot every time doesn't look like much fun but obviously I'll reserve judgement until we see more of it in action.

Posted by HerbieBug

...mmkay.

Posted by JackSukeru

One shot kills? I'm into it.

Posted by leafhouse

Drum 'n Bass. Just like all metal that has growl in it is not Death Metal - All electronic music that has "wobble bass" is not dubstep. It's all in the rhythm. Dubstep is a slower more downbeat while Drum 'n bass is faster more upbeat.

Dubstep example

DnB example

This looks like everything I've wanted in a fps in so long...

Posted by Recall

Crazy and awesome.

Will Jeff have a Shootmania server too? :)

Edited by Mumrik

Hey Jeff.

Dubstep.

Sort of.

I am confused about why everyone is pumped for this.
