But the game isn't even out yet and people are talking about how it's going to suck already.  I mean, really.

I've been waiting for a chance to link this article, and it looks like it'd fit in just fine here. :p

the atmosphere is what defined FEAR.  it's not hard to tell from that trailer that it is gone.  and the original developer is gone.  maybe that won't be a negative, given how the developer did on 2, but what has been the intense opinion of this community about the development of freespace 3?  "If it ain't V, it ain't freespace 3".  these are perfectly valid reasons to conclude that the game will suck AS A SEQUEL. 
I like to stare at the sun.

Yeah, because two minutes of snippets is going to tell you the atmosphere of the entire game.

But none of that is the point.  What I was talking about is how people aren't even giving the game a chance to be good.  It's always They Changed It Now It Sucks.

Okay, one more time.

The first game was good.

The second game was bad.

We are projecting a continuation of that trend.

 
Yep, and the elite ass-kicking F.E.A.R. pointman of the first game is now replaced with a shaggy-haired bum with an assault rifle.

Seriously though, I want to know what the hell happened after the end of EP where your extraction heli gets blown up and Paxton Fettel does that creepy monologue about the end of the world as the camera pans across the ruined city.  And most importantly, I want to know what the hell the story is talking about when it mentions "You will be a God among men."

EDIT: I also want to know why the hell the player is helping Alma considering he caused a nuclear detonation in an attempt to kill her in the first game and she seems hell-bent on causing the end of the world in revenge for what her father did to her.

17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Although it was good Extraction Point is non-canon according to Monolith and it's storyline is not being carried through, unless I've read wrong?

Well I personally didn't think much to the trailer but I'll hold off any further judgements until they start giving us more preview material.

I loved the guns in FEAR.
Dat ASP rifle...

Also, the two expansions for FEAR 1 get a lot of flak, but they're still fun. Perseus Mandate handled a bit differently from the main game and Extraction Point...
Spoiler:
in that it had a relatively happy ending. Steven Blum voicing one of your squad mates didn't hurt matters either. :)

what the hell is happy about finally making it out only to realise now EVERYTHING has gone to hell?  everything you just did was for nothing.  it's not over, there is no escape.  everything you just did was for nothing; the entire city is in flames and for all you know the entire world is also.

Spoiler:
You and one of your sqaud mates make it out alive in a helicopter and you prevent the mercs from getting Fettel's DNA or whatever they were looking for.

"F.3.A.R"

Oh, man. That just oozes sophistication.

Future PCGamer review
We were told that the numerical insertion is firmly in the tradition of Left 4 Dead and ilk. The '3' is an allusion to the game's innovative three man co-op: one player assumes the personage of the Point Man while another takes the reins of the man with the structurally compromised forehead. The third player sits in spectator and mocks the others for playing "F.3.A.R". 98/100 EDITORS CHOICE
