Re: April Fools by Volition
Hahaha, this is excellent. Skits featuring developers tend to be pretty awkward, but this was really well executed.

Oh, and hello there, Deepblue. Haven't seen you for some time!

Re: April Fools by Volition
I stumbled on this quite out of the blue, but good on them for actually going through with it as well. Nice to see a Dev. having a bit of fun.

no surprise there. Was already expecting that from the getgo. Remember that you have to make the Ostrich work to make the joke work.
Remember the Altair joke from Metal Gear Solid 4 last year? Same there.

Re: April Fools by Volition
Do you think  :v: would jump at the chance to make FS3 or do you think there not bothered?

I know the FS props were there for a chuckle but it makes me wonder if they really miss working on those games or if theres people left at :v: who did.

 
Re: April Fools by Volition
IIRC, most of the FS team is still there. There's just no market for a FS3, without major changes. Which  would make it non-FS-ish.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

I don't see why not.

 
Re: April Fools by Volition
make  fs a good multiplayer freespace game and you'll have the market!

Fs just lacked of a good multiplayer platform and fun game mode i think!

complex space sims are out.

Maximum for today's "audience" is a simple HawX. And it's probably going to fail.

The new gaming generation is slightly more stupid I think. I suspect the majority of people on XBox Live or whatever have single-figure IQs.

I believe it'll be made so that it appeals to a heap of flaming turds (the new gaming audience).

And just what makes you and/or anyone else any better than "them"? :p

Given :v:'s recent track record, I have reasonable hopes that RF3 will wind up being a quality game.  I've heard just about nothing but high praise for Saint's Row 2.

Nifty!
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.
