Wow, has it been 5 months? Well, FREDding for JAD2.21 has almost finished! Now its just polish time and waiting for the next full bodied release of FS Open and the Media VPs! Here's a preview from an anonymous beta tester!

Quote
I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you all how JAD2.21 will be the

WORST

JAD

EVER.

It's true. Let me tell you why.

1) There's no Alpha 1! He's entirely absent! There's no one to snark about how weird stuff is and there's no straight man to act incredulous when something WACKY HAPPENS. Instead you fly as the complete opposite of Alpha 1. An easily impressionable, fun loving, off the wall trufan. And a girl to boot! (This is what, the 3rd campaign now to star a female? Is there some sort of feminist movement going on at HLP? Maybe they should get back to the Kitchen system, am I right guys?)

2) There's no FRED! He's gone too! Who's going to be super evil and come up with entirely stupid ideas for missions?! Without FRED, Axem had to resort to stealing concepts from other campaigns, like, DISABLE LOTS OF BEAM CANNONS.



Also no FRED, no disco? How do you call this JAD without disco? Instead all you get are MONSTERS OF THE WEEK MISSION. How are you supposed to get to know any of them in just one mission?

No Alpha 1, no FRED? How could this get any worse?

3) GAMEPLAY GIMMICKS! Unconvinced that standard gameplay is the way of the future, JAD will feature a variety of gameplay gimmicks that are used once and never heard or seen again. Flying to the market? Oh wow, I am engaging in questionable activities with my blinds drawn...



Not to mention the old and tired "color specific weaknesses" gimmick. I thought Freespace was above this!



4) Does everything need eyes?!



5) No FRED. I know I said it before, but it needs to be stated again. I can't possibly see how this will be any good without all the things we've come to know and love from the original JAD series. I for one will be boycotting this campaign!

"The fourth Beta Tester is jumping in!"
Something what looks like an energy shield...
Ravana's shooting with hearts...
Another Colossus blowing up....
Some weird spinning logo that fires a purple beam...
The railgun from WoD....
HEART SHIELDS!
A really huge shockwave and a....cross

MADNESS
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."

Axem, excellent cutscene usage. And the hearts. And Sakura's staff.

Technically said heart shooter is the SD Vassago, who's like a Ravana-lite.

Re: Give me beams... Small JAD2.2 Preview
Can't have a Axem campaign without a Vassago!

Still though, no Alpha 1? Still no FRED?
It's still gonna be a BAD campaign, even though the trailer looks promising.
It's like JAD without all the things that make it JAD!

May pirate it after release, not gonna spend any of my money on this hack job!

You mod pirates are the cancer that's killing the FreeSpace community! Get a real job and support your mods by buying the import version, the localized version, the extended import version, the steel book version and all the other merchandise I get made in my basement.
