or something along those lines... i kinda' drifted off-topic on my earlier post because of the title of the thread... i'm not trying to get on your carse or anything Mia... i'm sure you weren't really give it all that much thought...

as for Mace Griffin... i'm not sure why this game is being so overhyped... what sets this game apart from all the other 1st person shooters out there... the overhyping isn't justified at all... and for christ's sake it takes place in the Star Trek universe... YUK!

every other hyped FPS had it's selling point, or an engine that powers the hype machine... for example...

Halo: Vehicles
Red Faction: Destructable Walls
XIII: 1st Cel-Shaded FPS

now what's fueling Mace Griffin's hype machine...? perhaps i missed it... but the only thing i can think of is the excess amount of coverage that certain popular videogame sites have been giving it... but i always thought that was a product of gamer anticipation or excitment... i think that's changed as of late... it's as if gaming sites are being payed off to cover and overhype games for certain developers... thus fooling their readers into purchasing those games and then setting them up for a big let down when the game doesn't live up to all the hoopla...


Me give much thought on the topic? lol, no dice. Gimmick hype is expect like SOF with blowing off limbs. If you bring something new to the table, people will want to try it out and see if it should be the "new standard". Now... with Halo's vehicles.... those were justified (esp in multi-player). They were fun and easy to use. With those three games.... the first of something (in that genre anyway) alway, brings mad hype. Sometimes they pan out, sometimes they don't. Like with XBL, everyone was hyped about being able to voice mask.... worst idea EVER (well, maybe not ever, but you get the point). With Mace.... hype over it is unclear (at least to me), b/c I haven't heard anything new about it and what was supposed to set it apart from the rest of the 1000 FPS that are coming out for Xbox.

why was voice masking a bad idea? I only have 2k3 for live and it's not used in that game.

Xbox live hasn't ruined gaming. Only about 600,000 people who own an xbox, have live. That means theres over 9 million people who own xboxs, and don't have live.

One of the reasons mace is receiving alot of hype is, it's being made by the codevelopers of StarLancer. Thats so important because mace is going to have space combat levels, meaning your going to take flight in spaceships, and fight(I.E Starlancer style) Mace griffin is also suppose to be load free.

The other reason(Really the main reason) the game is being hyped is because of this new engine Warthog(developers of mace) has built. Heres some information on the engine.

Quote:
"Given its ground breaking capabilities and architecture the Xbox game system is the ideal platform to enable this type of advanced game technology. With sprawling space landscapes and vast indoor environments, we are creating immense new worlds for this game," said Paul Chapman, Producer at Warthog.

To make this possible, Warthog developed the Tusk engine. The new engine allows two key gameplay innovations. Tusk employs scene-graph principles that allow movement within and between different types of environments -- currently impossible in other games. Additionally the advanced portal technology will allow gamers, for the first time ever, to be able to seamlessly transition between first person combat and space flight action.

Features

"Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter" offers a wealth of innovative features, including the following:

Seamless transitions between first person combat and space flight action

Bespoke animation system allows motion blending and animation of detached parts of objects ("Motion Blending")

Consistent flight control and weapons management systems in both space and on the ground

Modular player vehicle system with a vast array of equipment and upgrades

The ability to pilot a wide range of ships

Lifelike NPC reaction depending on their intelligence, bravery, health, etc. and in combat will adjust their strategy based on their numbers, types of weapons, available cover, and numerous other conditions

Diverse missions, some story driven, some incidental create a dynamic, realistic universe for an immersive experience

Large number of player weapons from low to high tech, many unique to this game

A huge variety of walk-around environments with different physics, obstacles, inhabitants and creatures

High level of visual effects, lighting and sound, utilizing high-spec, optimized Xbox/PC capabilities

Multiple weighted skinned animation system

Per polygon collision systems

Skinned deformable skeletal characters, Skeletal snapping

Pixel shading for stunning graphical effects such as phong lighting, dynamic reflections and refractive transparency (Xbox Only)

Vertex shaders will be used for skinning and dynamic level-of-detail (Xbox Only)

I still prefer playing one player in many games (FPS, Action/Adventure, whatever) but now if I buy a sports game it'll have to have live capabilities. Because as fun as a single-player franchise is, it doesn't beat playing with a real person and enjoying whooping their ass (or getting your ass handed to you )

Yes yes yes.... the title of the topic is a bit "off". I should have typed "Has xbl ruined xbox gaming for you?" Either way, I've got the info I've needed so far.... XBL games get more attention than ones without.

Actually the game is not in the star trek universe, or it wouldn't be getting all this hype as the majority of trek fans are pc gamers. I really wanted the game when it was x-box exclusive, as the screens showed way back then looked awesome. Now it is a watered down engine to support the ps2's old school graphic capabilities, so I'll probably pass.

As for live, it is a major point for me. But even more so is having any sort of multi-player. I play a lot with friends, from just 2 of us co-oping to system link with 8-16 of us, so any multi is good for me.

online gaming is a niche market, it will never catch on with the mainstream market. it will always be a hardcore gaming niche. i cant belive the emphasis some people put on it. like Bigloser said, there are nine million people out there who dont have XBL.

not to mention not all people who have xbox have broadband. That's like calling Halo a niche b/c it didn't sell 6 million copies. XBL is hardware/service.... those never really sell as big as software does (unless it's a controller or something). It was aimed more towards this board's purchases... that's why I included most rescent buys not including bargin buys.

I had my share online gaming with the DC, and see it as nothing more than a enhanced gimmick. Take a shallow repeative game throw in online gaming and it becomes a hit with the hardcores. Take PSO for example it's 4 basic levels that you can blow out in an hour a piece. The gameplay is hack and slash at it's heart and it's down right boring to play alone, but play it online and it's an addiction.

My problem has always been with people. Sure if you have a few online friends and only play agaisnt them it can be fun, but what happens when you can't find anyone you know? Your stuck with the hackers, losers who scream all the time, asshole who wait till you die to steal your crap, dumbshits who race backwards, server crashes, etc, etc.

I agree 100%. In fact I still haven't seen anything that compels me to pick up XBL. I mean it's just hack and slash, racing one on one, death match, capture the flag, or some other gimmicky crap.

Same shit over and over...

Try Ghost Recon on-line, not PSO. Almost all the levels play differently and gameplay changes depending on how many people you have per team.

Yeah, I was starting to get annoyed with the whole "I played online with dc and wasn't impressed". Shit.... IIIII played online with dc and wasnt' impressed. I had joy here and there, but it wasn't awe inspiring (I guess dial-up can do that to yah). Only time I played online was nfl2k1 a few times (mainly against a friend on the other side of town) NBA2k1 once against my uncle and chu chu rocket. DC just had tooooo many quitters b/c of the fact no one cared about records. XBL gives me a different feel..... esp with voice communication (I just wish they'd go over 16 people and have more dedicated servers).

I had joy here and there, but it wasn't awe inspiring (I guess dial-up can do that to yah). Only time I played online was nfl2k1 a few times (mainly against a friend on the other side of town) NBA2k1 once against my uncle and chu chu rocket. DC just had tooooo many quitters b/c of the fact no one cared about records. XBL gives me a different feel..... esp with voice communication (I just wish they'd go over 16 people and have more dedicated servers).
Let's see faster servers, better connections, voice communication, but your still dealing with the same assholes, right?
