I joined up Pun. Now I just need a good avatar.

I checked on HighOctane Software's site, and the game is being delayed until 2007. See the quote below:

". . .Please note, we are officially announcing, after careful consideration by our teams, administration, investors, and publisher that the release date will be postponed to 2007. The exact details are to be determined.

It was a difficult choice to be made and was not based solely on the state of the project but also the market and technology presently available. In addition we were required to change from a multi-phased release to releasing all platforms on the same day. Due to this and many other unforeseen circumstances we have chosen to delay the release.

Please accept our apologies on this.

Thank You."

Well, back to playing Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory for a while. Very Happy Hope Omega Wing Zero pans out.

I can't say that this really should come as a surprise to anyone. These guys have teken on a full scale project here. Of course there's going to be delays. I just hope that High Octane does a better job at game development than they have done with the PR side of their business. So many things have been mishandled. I think that's really the reason there's so much skepticism from the Descent Community. I've got a few pretty good friends that are/were on the High Octane team and they assure me that the game will be great. We'll have to wait and see.

From what i've seen, there's only been skepticism from a few people.

Core Decision has done an atrocious job with their image and Public Relations. It's a train wreck. Don't misunderstand me. I dont know anything about the game itself, but the whole thing has been grossly mishandled from a PR and image point of view.

So much for using my CompU$A gift card which expires in 90 days. . . Razz

I wonder if the game will be good too. THe screenshots they released a while back were pretty weak, but it appeared I was in the minority opinion.

If they do a very GOOD job on this game, they will make a fk load of money. Its been years since a good game has come out which isn't a shooter or sychronized online warring faction bull$hz (apologoes to those who like synchronized online warring faction bull$t . . . Rolling Eyes

We just need something new.

I'm a skeptic on Core Decision. Then again, I'm skeptical about most things. On the other hand, I HOPE it will come out [on the revised time schedule] and I hope it will be a great game. Either way, I'll still support them by buying the game.

From what I gather from the site (I practically absorbed all CD related info on there...) It'll be Descent like. But, not the same thing, I want to see screen shots too.
The things that are cool to me, is a built in MP3 player and a cloaking device IN YOUR SHIP BY DEFAULT...

nTrap didn't happen because they couldn't find a publisher IIRC.

As for Core Decision, it IS coming out. I've been keeping tabs with Zach, who has been kind enough to remove any doubt of it not coming out. Smile

Pun, they DO have a publisher. That I do know for a fact. (Had one for quite some time) Zach mentioned that in TS a few months back, so unless something has changed.....
