    Between me, Fantastico, DUE, Ghlinn, M.D., and I believe joshofalltrades soon, we should have enough people to get a few good games in.

    I'm currently in a lobby, so someone else should start it up. Send me an invite and I'm there.

    My load screen Tip just said that Flare Guns can be used to spot Jason on the map, I know I saw him on the map before with noone around him so I think that is correct. We were trying to figure that out earlier.

    Did people get extra keys to send out for this, or is it strictly if you've purchased?

    They should give that Jason a snorkel, swim trunks, and water wings outfit.

    If I start near the island, I just need to learn to book it, because that seems to be the #1 spot to start killing horny teenagers.

    There's a survey up if you played the beta to give the developers feedback. Look at their twitter page for deets.

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Class Traitor Smoke-filled roomRegistered User regular
    Release date is now apparently Spring 2017.

    That's good. They still have a bit of work to do for sure.

  • El FantasticoEl Fantastico Toronto, ONRegistered User regular
    For what it was, the beta ran pretty good, short of a few game-breaking glitches.

    My favourite ones are the ones where getting out of an upturned car would leave the player upside down too, but that's more of a graphical nuisance than a gamebreaker.

    3-5 months to iron some of that out, put in some extra maps, balance some of the counselor stats, I can see the game being a hit.

    I hope with th delay we'll get a few more Jason's as well. Like Uber Jason, FvJ Jason, and Remake Jason.

    I know from the kickstarter updates part of the delay is they wanted to add some single player stuff like Bot Match and such. So it will hopefully feel like a more complete game on launch.

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Class Traitor Smoke-filled roomRegistered User regular
    I should really go back and rewatch all of these

  • El FantasticoEl Fantastico Toronto, ONRegistered User regular
    I like that there were counselor archetypes, like the Bookworm, the Popular, the Athlete, the Preppy Jock, the Rocker, but I almost kind of wish there'd be a Build-A-Counselor that you can level, say up to 30, and allocate the stat points yourself.

    You might end up with a lot of FotM builds, especially since Stamina and Speed seem really strong, and if you can couple that with Stealth, then you're pretty well set, but then it's up to the devs to make the other attributes more useful in the game. An Intelligence of 10 can be very valuable in the right situations. Most of the other stats seemed superfluous though. Strength doesn't feel like it does enough. Luck feels arbitrary. Composure is great to have, until that time Jason walks by you not able to detect you, but your counselor gives your location away. I'm still so super upset by that one time...

    Have they talked about customizing Jason's perks, similar to the counselors? I feel like that would make for some interesting choices as long as some of them were mutually exclusive.

    Faster move speed OR longer-lasting Sense. Long-range attacks OR lower cool down on Morph. Have each version of Jason have a different talent tree so they're not just reskins.

    I still am not really a fan of Shift, nor how easy it is to camp the phone box, but boy did I have fun with that beta.

    I imagine the phone box problem at least will be alleviated with more victory conditions for the counselors.

    Every Jason has Pros and Cons. For example Jason Part 3 from the beta had bonus to Sprinting but moved slower in water. He also had like better sense but morph had a slower recharge. If I'm remembering it right. But it would seem each Jason has 3 pros and cons making them slightly unique.

    yea each one had different traits and different kills you could unlock (which I suppose is just aesthetics)

    With this video it looks like Jason can pickup different weapons? I see the machete on his belt and a harpoon? or perhaps the machete is the throwing knives and his main weapon is the harpoon.

    Right, I remember that each Jason had different perks. I was wondering if they were considering customization of those perks.

    Not that I have seen, likely they want to keep each flavour of Jason it's own thing to balance with perked out counsellors. Could be wrong though

    That's the CJ Graham Jason from part 6. He used a machete, a spear, and a hunting knife which he throws. He also folds the sherif in half. I assume he is a bit quicker than any of the Hodder Jasons will be.

    Hodder Jason just has such an amazing beefy presence

    Hodder Jason just has such an amazing beefy presence

    Put Hodder behind a mask and you'll get nothing but intensity and presence.
    If you ever get the chance watch Hatchet. In the behind the scenes the cast is talking about how Kane Hodder refused to interact with them on set. Kane explains it that if he got to know these kids he would never be able to do what he needs to do to get good scares out of them.

    Apparently in Hatchet the first time they ever see Hodder in makeup is the graveyard scene. As the director is giving them direction you can hear Kane in the background yelling and banging on mausoleums getting in character. When he rushes them on cue he scares them so badly they forgot how they were supposed to react.

    He just knows how to emote so well behind a mask and the fact he gave Jason a lot of his defining traits from behind a hockey mask says something to his ability to emote with just his breathing and body language.
