Haha, I don't think we'll see Glory Kills or anything similar in the Quake series. I can see why they leaned into it and so hard with DOOM. Especially with the comic book being an influence. Well, plus they really leaned into Doom Slayer HAAAAAATING demons with a PASSION. But I could see reading that comic and then getting to the idea of fatalities which eventually became Glory Kills.Skill based movement. I know it won't work on a controller, but I don't care. Also, please please please no glory kills or any other kind of stupid mechanic that interrupts game flow.
Singleplayer like Quake 1, Multiplayer like Quake 3. Make it fresh and fast, gorgeous looking, and focus on PC (console versions should still release though). Get Trent Reznor to make the soundtrack again. Doom 2016 should be a good inspirational starting point, but Quake needs to be even faster.
This is the problem for sure. Arena shooters make 2004 fighting game scene seem huge.They will not be rebooting quake. Quake Champions is alright for what it is. Die hard Quake live players hate it. But it's really not that bad.
The old school arena shooter market is tiny. Just look at how dead a game like diabotical already is. Which is really a great attempt at honouring Quake Live while trying to modernise. The problem with the AFPS community is they are so hardcore, its not an easy genre to get into. They'll chew out any attempts to make the games more appealing to new players. It's really not something worth trying at all. Just look on the diabotical reddit for all the shit that game gets. There is no pleasing that market and it's generous to even call it a market.
I hated the forced classing. I loved being able to just pick another class mid game and adjust to the flow of a round.Overwatch was hot for a minute, but a lot of people dropped off because they weren't happy with the balance changes or overall direction of the game. I was one of those people, haha.
Okay. That tells us where a potential solution is.TF2 is far from dead, and its traffic is still very much alive and well. I mean, it's usually floating in the top ten highest current population on Steam. Right now it's currently #8 with 80,000 players.
Be still my heart. That could be cool but I’ll leave it for now.Though, I'd admit if id collaborated with Raven and it was a new Heretic or Hexen I'd be fine with that too, lmao.
Yeah. You gotta pick lovecraft/midievil/starchild, another alien army shoooter, or id-allstars arena FPSI've decided this thread shows thats it going to be ultra hard to make anyone happy so prob just don't do it, or it has to be something totally different
We are playing with house money after 2016. It’s not DoomI/II and it’s not Doom3 but it is good enough and feels like an id game. I felt like after Rage and Carmack leaving we’d not get another so I’m just thankful it (and machine games Wolfs) exist.As someone that grew up loving everything id put out, I'm just so happy to see the things I love getting attention again.
It was a stupid trend follow. Instead of leaning into what you are like counter strike and TF2 apparently they tried to be a hero shooter. It got them nowhere big and upset the core.just checked and Quake Champions is still early access lol.
so... maybe they should figure out what they’re doing with that. Man, there’s got to be some way to make arena shooters viable again, right?
Yup.has to be free to play though
