    4 different Levi turrets indeed...
    Maybe Epic is adding new weapon combos that need cooperation from multiple gunners.

    The Selket model is just the UC2 model for scale, or so it seems, but I'm sure some similar Nakhti will show up.

    As for War of the Worlds... there is only so many ways you can create a tripod, so of course they are similar.
    Maybe the film adaption helped, but I'm curious how many won't know of the story and just shout "Half-Life Strider" instead.
    They could've gone for a quad-type instead, but 3 legs has "something", and more just doesn't work.

    Something only semi-related, a few weeks ago I noticed "NanoBlack" is actually a trademarked name.

    That could mean legal problems... :S

    Edit: People posted before me now...
    TraCK, count those Strider legs again: http://www.planethalflife.com/half-life2/enemies/
    That 4th thing is a light post.
    Also these legs are more tentacle like, probably really sturdy material, so I can't see one of those things topple from a few pathetic rockets.
    Also what's with calling Epic idiots???

    Yeah....what he said ^^ Striders have 3 legs buddy....get your facts straight before you start spouting off bull****. I'm sure it wont be as easy as "putting a couple rockets into the leg" of the Walker to take it down. I'm also quite sure they are working extremely hard on getting the DM feel JUST right and balanced to perfection so chill man....you would know this if you had been keeping up with interviews and such. :rolleyes: And your calling yourself a "pro"? Psshhh.....

    I think being shot in the leg (of a walking thing) should just make it "wobble," same with ramming its legs.

    Taking it out straight like that would suck.

    Easy, guy. Obviously TraCK missed a few lines of the interviews that have been out there and maybe a leg on a Strider, but you don't have to be so hostile. Point it out and move along.

    Is it me or has the polygon count gone down? Maybe I'm just used to seeing Malcolm in everything.

    And why Epic is one of my favorite companies:


    GN: Will there be any crazier maps like the Convoy Assault map in 2004?

    Jeff Morris: Oh yeah, we also like the idea of map hazards that can be triggered to kill other players. Low-grave Instagib is about as crazy as it gets. That's something that Unreal Engine 3 really allows our designers to do is go off and come up with a crazy idea and try it out using the visual scripting language Kismet. Afterall there's no better way to find out whether your crazy idea will work and be fun than giving it a play test. Of course, we have to make sure the designers are on task as well because the power of Kismet allows them to come up with some really crazy ideas. We don't want them coming to us with a recreation of Breakout using vehicles.

    Mark Rein: Wow, that would be really cool.

    Jeff Morris: [Laughs] I know, it's a true story.

    I guess he must know that's something we've been playing since UT right? It hardly qualifies as "crazy".

    The new Levi. looks awesome. I dig the flat rockets as well. Very cute.

    Hopefully the game will actually be good this time, as opposed to a pretty tech. demo.

    Already posted about the pics in the thread about this in the 2k7 forum...the vehicles look sweet....and from those pictures we can get an idea of the perspective of the game. The characters look BIG. Proper sized people, not characters that disappear into stickmen when they get are just a few paces away.

    What is that vehicle shooting at the hoverboarders? It's not the Raptor or the Cicada? Flying necris vehicle perhaps?

    The article has a lot of interesting stuff, notably what he says about nerfing the jumping. It seems they are being much more nerfed than we thought....it seems to be hinted that even the wall jump won't be there...although you could interpret what he says in a number of ways...like it won't be in the PS3 version or something.

    But does the rolling of ONS into Conquest/Warfaremean there are only going to be the 3 gametypes - (T)DM, CTF and ONS 2.0 ?
    I personally think this might be a good thing.

    It's a Cicada, you can see the turret underneath, it's just at a weird angle.

    That's the way I interpreted it, but since it's not confirmed I didn't both to comment.

    I think they've wimped out of the original warfare concept because either the technology isn't there yet to do it, or, they couldn't make it hang together as an MP game that you can just "pick up and play".

    I am. It looks ****ing great. I just hope the PC version of the game doesn't lose the things the PS3 version seems to be.

    WTH, all the new images are 404. :mad:

    From the few images that I can see posted in this forum and from zooming their thumbnails in firefox, a lot of stuff looks good, but the interview seems to tell a different story. It seems that most questions were answered with "We're not sure yet." I don't like the sound of that, there's going to have to be a lot of deciding going on soon. Either that, or Epic was less than candid.

    It looks really damned polished. Really atmospheric as well; the one with the manta and the two trailing hoverboarders is like ONS-Severance plus really pretty grass.

    I hope the Darkwalker will be able to accomplish some of the movements the footsoldiers can, imagine if it was able to jump or crouch to avoid rockets, like the Striders do in Half-Life 2.

    Wonder what the movement speed of those things is like. I think they're a Goliath equivalent, really, so tank-speed might be right on.
