Hard Reset is a new old-school FPS from Polish developers, Flying Wild Hog, the combination of members from CD Projekt RED, People Can Fly, and City Interactive. It takes place in a cyber-punk setting and has you fighting off hostile robots. Your arsenal consists of two transforming weapons that give you a much larger arsenal than you would expect. This paired with destructible environments and loads of enemies is sure to make for an excellent old-school shooting experience.

    I certainly like the aesthetic they've chosen. I second Big Isy's piqued curiosity.

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    City Interactive is the Robin to People Can Fly and CD Projekt's Batman.

    All I kept thinking was that Sniper: Ghost Warrior had decent foliage and you guys are being too critical. Then I remembered this game is going for a futuristic, Blade-Runner-Matrixy type setting. Yeah, foliage isn't gonna cut it.

    To be fair, Sniper had some pretty spot on sniping mechanics, even if the game overall had a ton of flaws. Given the pedigree of the other two, I can't imagine they'd let Sniper's flaws creep into this. I'm definitely interested.

    Deus Ex 3, Prey 2, now this.

    I don't know what happened or when, but someone decided that Blade Runner was the best thing ever. They were correct.

    2011/12 is going to be one amazing year.

    We don't even care... whether we care or not...

    The visuals make me think of Bioshock, Batman, and Blade Runner all rolled together. That is a good thing.

  • GaslightGaslight Registered User regular
    What was the last actual major PC-exclusive FPS? Metro 2033? No, wait, that did come out for 360...I can't think of it. Anyway, the very idea of a PC-exlusive FPS is intriguing, and these obscure eastern European developers seem to have a really good record of producing cool, "made with love" stuff distinct from what the major publishers put out. So I will keep this on my radar screen.

    I think this is actually going to be released in a matter of a few months. Chances are, my feeb PC won't be able to run it, but I'm nonetheless excited for it.

    Pretty sure the last major exclusive FPS was STALKER: CoP. Which was a year and a half ago. Incidentally, also eastern Europe.

    This looks exciting. I can't imagine not checking this out.

    So, out in two months? That's nice too.

  • Big ClassyBig Classy Registered User regular
    Where are we getting the two months thing? can't view trailer so apologies if its ion there.

    If true, I'm passing. Theres far to many definite AAA titles out that time to warrant risking a purchase on a new IP, created by an unknown developer... Well, sort of unknown.

    I'm sure it'll be a great game but its competing with Saints Row 3, Deus Ex HR, Batman AC and Skyrim during that release window.

    Hard Reset is scheduled for release in September 2011.

    Was it Romero behind Daikatana? he was well known. And Will Wright with Spore. :P
    Those guys worked on some good games in the past but this is their first title together, if I'm not mistaken.

    I'm going to be honest, here; I like Serious Sam, but I don't like it more than any other shooter. It feels to me like it was developed around the superficial elements of the old-school shooter instead of focusing on what those mechanics did to make those games so great. Non-recharging health, for instance, created moments of tension in games like the early id Software shooters. In Serious Sam, I either survive a horde of monsters or I don't. In case of the former, I usually get enough health and ammo to get to the next wave with no problems.

    That's certainly not my only problem with Serious Sam, but that's a speil to have elsewhere.

    This is their debut title as Flying Wild Hogs, yes.

    As I enjoy shooters of the Polish-developed variety, I am looking forward to this. Hopefully this doesn't come out near the probably-better-marketed Prey 2.

    Oh man, I had never heard of this until today, and now I am psyched as hell for it.

  • DartboyDartboy Registered User regular
    Well now, this looks interesting...

  • AntithesisAntithesis Registered User regular
    At the very least, this game's marketing is a nice contrast to a series of announcements regarding announcements regarding a teaser trailer that may be released pending a certain number of facebook likes or twitter followers multiple years before the game's release.

    Like this game for an exclusive hat in Team For- oh dear.

    That sure is some pretty.

    Numerical health and armor readouts (that also goes past 100%)?

    what kind of sorcery is this

    I would be lying if I said that this right here didn't excite me almost as much as anything else. Not that I despise invisible/regenerating health, but I love me some variety.

    I crave more information, but all I can find is various reconfigurations of the low down in the PC Gamer article in the OP.

    I think IGN said it's coming to Steam, which is nice for us Steam users.

    I want more details. What are my cyberman gunshooter superpowers? What kinds of robots of robotic dystopia will fall under my guns?

    I think killing a complete shit load of robots would be alright.

    The trailer looks like it was just fighting the same mob over and over with a shotgun or electro-gun of sorts. I don't really think it's all that impressive yet.
