Where the big titty lolis at?
>>662082 It's like i'm back in 2006 playing AA trash on my PS2 again.
How much did they pay you for this?
>>662082 Also >Outcast <Fully open world <high density voxel based environments <innovative ai and sandbox based combat/gameplay <lots of side content to do <back in 1999 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVquCenrugs Why is Outcast so criminally overlooked?
>still no mention of timesplitters FUCK! just make some remasters for PC already! or at least make timesplitters 4.
>>662095 >Why is Outcast so criminally overlooked? You'll play something that's called Outcast in 1999? >>662082 Dead Island 2 but in hands of THQN >>662097 At least Goldeneye suffers the same fate
>>662100 Goldeneye got a sourcemod, TS got nothing other than the base games, theres no way to play the games online unless you join a faggy discord. also goldeneye might be getting a re-release sometime soon
>>662100 >At least Goldeneye suffers the same fate When taken out of its historical context, Goldeneye's not great. It was neat for a generation of 90s Nintendo only kids who never played an FPS before, it's not good when you take into account it came out the same year as Blood and a year after Duke Nukem.
>>662100 >You'll play something that's called Outcast in 1999? My name is not important.
>>662108 goldeneye does suck, but with the mouse and keyboard hack and 60fps it fucking rules, shame the decompilation is years away, but the perfect dark decompilation is almost complete so we could just port over the assets as a mod for the game and enjoy it that way, just like goldeneye X did
>>662108 As I remember it, Donkey Kong 64 multiplayer was way better than Goldeneye.
>>662108 The only thing I can thank GoldenEye is that it was one of the biggest inspirations for Syphon Filter.
>>662236 BITCHES
>>662097 Nividia database confirmed they're doing something.

Surely they'll finally announce Titan Quest 2 right?
>>662827 Is there not a game similar to Titan Quest? Alaloth or something?
>>662095 >Why is Outcast so criminally overlooked? It was extremely demanding on CPU and RAM, and did not support 3D acceleration.
>>662835 So it was 1999 Crysis?
>>662865 No, because Crysis actually sold well

Reminder this starts in 3 days, everyone. >>662095 Sadly, many games from that era share this fate. PC gaming in the late 90s was still quite niche in America compared to consoles and most people didn't have computers anywhere near powerful enough to run something like Outcast. Grand Theft Auto 3 gets all the credit and praise for open world sandboxes when there were several years before it, that's because GTA3 came out at just the right time and launched on consoles as well. There's probably a name for this phenomenon, you see it in music often.
>>665324 >There's probably a name for this phenomenon, you see it in music often. Too ahead of it's time?
>>665324 It's called "selling to the lowest common denominator"

TOMORROW, gentlemen. Around 29 hours from now.
>>666645 Looking forward to it
>>662009 Whats wrong with champions online?
>>662095 Anon did you forget how good of a year 1999 was for gaming? Nobody had time for Outcast.
>>666647 Just about everything besides the character creator... which you have to pay money for various parts of.
>>666647 the whole dev team got removed in 2012. Ever since they have been used small dev teams of 2 to 4 people. Mostly have no idea of what to do with the game. All interesting features good abandoned and now thy run on recycled mini-events the whole year. they ran off almost the entire original playerbase and now is populated by furries, ERPers, goons, etc If you say something bad about current Furry dev you might get muted and our forum threads might be locked. For just being an asset flip of a dead roject, the game had potential, but has been shitted upon by management for around 10 years.
>>662002 Should we have a restream for the sake of the big tiddie lolis? Flood detected fuck you

>>666884 Never 4get >>662830 Grim Dawn is made by the Titan Quest devs and is very similar mechanically, even uses the same engine. It's basically Titan Quest 2 but with a different coat of paint.
The AMAwas shit DAH2 online co-op or pass, Give me Deus Ex. Give me Darksiders 4. Don't fuck up Jagged Alliance 3.
>>667264 The AMA was great though
