As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
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!
Just Cause 2: Like Bionic Commando and Crysis with the crazy ramped up x1000
Highlights: 4:40, 5:15, 7:15, and pretty much everything he shows off during the chase sequence.
The parachute and infinite grappling hook look like pretty awesome tools, but combined with the fluid gunplay / movement, judicious use of remote C4, attaching objects to other objects, and a vast, seamless open world locale, this looks like something way, way out there. It's the kind of stuff you sometimes wish devs would focus on more instead of silly things like "realism". It's like if Robert Rodriguez decided to direct a game, you can imagine it'd be something like this.
