Haven't seen anyone talk about this for a while. There is a weekly update thats about a week old that has some good info.

Site just launched 5 days ago. Did a search and didn't see where anyone posted about it so.......

UGH, a bow and arrow? No matter what you are flinging out of it, I have never wielded a cool game bow and arrow.

Even the cross bow in HL2 sucked IMO.

Other than that, we'll see, it looks ok.

Eh, it looks ok, but it kinda seems to just be another FPS in a market that is already saturated in the crap. They also stole some stuff from event horizon...

I read the whole site and although it uses the Doom 3 engine, I don't think you could call it a "rehash". Looks to have a story line that delves into some unique areas. The gravity flipping thing is gonna be cool and you'll really have to think in true 3d. Portal look cool too.

Does look like another "dark" game. I am a little tired of that. Just played Quake 4 again. I gotta say the flashlight thing is getting old.

gravity flipping, wall walking, portal using FPS? multiplayer could be VERY cool in this one.

the game is actually being developed by the guys @ human head studios. 3DRealms is the producer.

The first thing that I noticed is that the initial flash preloader didn't work. It reported 0 bytes loaded out of 0 total and didn't change.

I've been following them since E3. It looks cool. Hope my 7800gt handles well. It looks gorgeous. The engine better be good on it. I don't want another COD2 type engine.
Beautiful and slow.

There making a new turok for 360 I hope it is good I love turok games but ever since acclaim went out of buisness I thought I'd never see one again. Lets hope Buena Vista knows what there doing its using the unreal 3 engine so that'll be sweet

Perfect Dark for the N64 had a sweet crossbow.
Getting shot with that thing was like being hit with a forty ounce of vodka. You either coudn't see, or you died straight away.

Unreal Tournament: Chaos mod. The scoped crossbow was one of my favourite weapons. 3 arrow types (Standard, Explosive & Poison) and worked just like a sniper rifle (only silent). the poison arrows worked like a more accurate bio rifle (once player was shot they'd vomit the bio goo that was normally shot by bio rifle for a short while).

Well it's the Doom 3 engine... so... how well did Doom 3 and Quake 4 run on your machine?

Damn....been waiting to play this since 97...
I have a PC Gamer or some other magazine from 96 or 97 with Prey on the cover, it says something to the effect of "The next Quake Killer???" If I can find it I'll get a shot of it.

prey is gonna be bad-ass... I have been waiting for a long time for it.... the project was dropped years back, then picked back up... it's the next big game I am waiting for personally, just to tide me over until Hellgate London. ;)

Doom 3 rehash = yawnfest

Actually, that was what Quake4 was for me... I lost all interest in the single player part... but I have a feeling Prey will take it to the next level.. just check out the movies on the official site... it looks definitely more than just a doom3 rehash... imo

It's coming out for PC! Yay! I remember seeing a video for this thing around E3 and it had really neat gravity effects.

Sad to see they've removed the self-shadowing. It was present in some of the demo videos and screenshots, but now it seems to be gone. There's either some problem in the Doom 3 engine or display driver optimizations, because self-shadowing seems to cause odd flickering sometimes.

Doom 3 engine looks worse than Half-Life 2 when the realtime shadowing is reduced.

I still don't understand why people assume that since it uses the same engine that makes it a rehash of Doom 3. People said the same thing about Quake 4. That's like saying Jedi Outcast is a rehash of Quake 3 because it used the same engine. It's gameplay that makes a game, not the engine.


I'll play a demo if they release it. The portal and wall walking thing looks cool, along with spirit walking and the way they implement dying in the game. They're also saying that there's a lot of variety in the game, which is a huge plus. That's one of the reasons i like Quake 4 so much; the environments and enemies are constantly changing. Apparently a lot of the weapons are of the biological variety, and i've never been a big fan of those kinds of weapons, but if they're cool in this game i'll make an exception.

I was gonna touch on this subject myself...whenever I see doom3 engine used people start to complain.. it's ridiculous.
I thought this game is coming to 360 only, good to know we'll get it on PC as well, sweet.
