In France, at least...
Since the original AVP's been generating a storm recently, some of you might like to know the countdown to Rebellion's next hit FPS, Judge Dredd, has begun.
In France, at least...
I still can't see Judge Dredd as anyone but Sylvester Stallone. Sad really. Good comic.
Truly sad, the movie was horrible, Dredd deserved far better than to be played by Stallone.Originally Posted by Tom Ohle
And they should have done the story about Judges Death, Fire, Fear and Mortis instead of the one about Rico.

What? The movie was great! You guys don't know a good movie when you see it. Bet you didn't like Spider-Man either!
Dredd was a mess. I actually had to go read the comic book adaptation so I could figure out what the ending was supposed to be before they edited it to shreds.Originally Posted by Christoph Nahr
When you watch the film things just start exploding for no reason.
I'll give them some credit. They tried to use "old school" effects, and managed to put the last nail into the coffin of layered optical SFX.
Uh, Guys. This game isn't that film, OK? Shame it didn't live up to the trailer. I've never heard the buzz it generated, before or since, in a British cinema. Let's hope the game can lay that memory to rest.
This game's about the hardest cop to ever walk the streets, in the meanest city on earth, battling against the most evil villain ever. Unlike the film, it's produced in-house by Rebellion, owners of the 2000 AD comic book and developers of the original AvP.
Heck, at least it'll be different. :)
From what you've said, and anything I've read, how can it be that different than anything else we've seen in the past couple of years?
Engine - built from the ground up to deliver an epic environment with frantic fast action. Content - no game world is as large, or is as well conceived, as Mega-City One. Style - it's unique in the world of comic books, and this is being faithfully reproduced in the game. On all counts the game is different. Better? Only you can decide that.Originally Posted by Jeremy Johnsen

He's got some kind of stake in it. Just look at his posting history.
It's all he ever talks about on Planetcrap. Well, it, and insulting people who've just lost loved ones.
Is it just my imagination, or does Game Dredd's head look scarily like a peanut?
So if this turns out to suck - restrain your snarling fanboi hordes, Mr. Shock, 'cause we won't know either way 'til it ships - will we get a followup in the style of OMM's classic Trespasser fansite followup (which I can't find a link for...)?Engine - built from the ground up to deliver an epic environment with frantic fast action.

Also, will there be crates?

I only talk about what I'm interested in talking about. That doesn't mean there's a hidden agenda. If I did have a stake in Dredd beyond personal interest, I'd declare it. Also, the alleged insult was nothing of the kind, as the post archive clearly shows.Originally Posted by quatoria
And here I came into this thread, hoping to see someone talking about Star Wars: Rebellion. Nevermind!

You ought to know by now that if CultureShock posts it, it can be about only one thing.Originally Posted by Lee Johnson

PC Zone - Judge Dredd: Dredd Versus Death Preview.
It's been a while since we last saw Dredd Vs Death. At the time, it wasn't exactly a game as such, more a few wonderfully detailed levels littered almost at random with static people. Things have changed. Now nearing completion, the transformation is quite staggering, with Mega City One having been brought to life like never before. Holographic advertisements for Grot Pots spin in the streets outside the huge Justice Dept building, while deep in the bowels of the city, illicit raves throb and pulse to intense lightshows.
But it's the citizens that make the city, and while Rebellion would be hard-pressed to include all MC1's 400 million inhabitants, they seem to have had a damn good try at squeezing them into the game's 12 massive chapters. Potential perps and budding crazies are literally everywhere, most of them keen to avoid your gaze let alone your Lawgiver. Discover a crime in progress, however and the law-abiding among them will scarper, leaving you to deal with the scum of the streets. Lone criminals - those guilty of illegal dancing or daubing walls with graffiti - will probably come quietly. But gangs of crims are sure to put up a fight, forcing you to either cap their leader and make some arrests, or slaughter them all mercilessly and risk the attention of the SJS, the Judiciary's internal affairs dept.
But the real criminals behind the game are the four immortal Dark Judges and their hordes of Cultists. Despite being so close to release however, Rebellion is keeping Death and his three drinking companions under wraps. For now (I'm promised a squint at a future meeting - keep an eye out for a full hands-on preview next month). What the boys were willing to talk about at long last was the game's many multiplayer modes, one of which is a full co-operative mode for the main 12-chapter campaign. Deathmatch modes will be fitted as standard of course, but we can also expect teamplay variations like Block War (a capture-and-hold style mode), Informant - where the Judges must escort an unarmed squealer to safety - and the intriguingly-titled Umpty Raid, which sounds like a kind of Mega City footy game.
In terms of the visual style, the mix of weapons and sheer faithfulness to the 25-year history of the Dredd universe, the game seems to be heading in the right direction. Whether it will attract the non-believers remains to be seen, but 2000AD fans appear to finally be getting an interactive story worthy of the name.
I'll make ya a deal... as soon as my calender says "Septembre", I'll buy a copy.
*note to self* make sure wife doesn't buy French calender this Christmas.
You're not life as I know it Jim.while deep in the bowels of the city, illicit raves throb and pulse to intense lightshows.
See you at the party Richter! :mrgreen:
