Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Almost forgot this thread was mine... So! A while back Midway was all "Yo dawgs, UT is great but we're not so sure..." and Mike Rein of Epic was all, "Man what? Oh uh, we're just about to announce a new free expansion of the game... people will come back to play it and buy it!"
And thus, came birth to the TITAN EXPANSION. Its a huge free mod & Patch. The patch brings the game up to v2.0 and the expansion features 2 new characters, shit tons of new maps across all game types, and two very addicting game types along with a new mutator.
Check out these videos. Salivate. Reach for your installation discs, (Almost wrote dicks), and enjoy!
One of the most addicting, fast, and unique PC games ever is finally on all 3 platforms... and yet nobody has mentioned a real peep about it! The trailer above is for the new Xbox360 version which was delayed and to make up for it, Epic has included a few new exclusive maps and character models, but the game really shines on the PC and PS3 where player mods can be made and shared and used on actual online matches. There are quite a number of unique and great mods out there, from character models to whole maps. Some of them are actually really well done like the Sister of Battle character model below.
So while it isn't as deep as other shooters, where they may feature a really in depth single player, the main reason to get the game is the better reason to get it; the fuck awesome multiplayer which actually is verrrry smooth on a decent connection. Besides virtually no server lag on any decent server, there is also the fact that the game can be scaled way back to run extremely well on most gamer PCs. I was getting 60fps in game with my 7600GT and while it did not look like the screenshots, I could hardly give a damn and could not help but love the experience.
So yeah, would you guys like to talk about it or maybe try and get together a gaming night? Previous attempts have failed but if we can arrange a friday night frag fest every week, well then I think we can have some real fun.
