Too bad their other game is an xbox 360 only title. Condemned looks pretty cool.

Monolith is a awesome Dev, I remember Shogo. It was a really fun game. I wish they would make a Shogo 2. I think it could have some really good MP if done right.

I love Monolith too. Ever since I played their 2D scroller. Claw or something was it?? It was about a pirate Cat fighting the Spaniel Amarda.

I loved Shogo:MAD. The blood effects were so well done and over the top. I'm hoping thier next project is Shogo 2. Maybe with Mobile Armor that actually has a controllable vehicle mode.

I *loved* NOLF2. I usually like games with open and varied environments. NOLF2 not only had that, but also offered a huge variety in gameplay. Of course the storytelling was innovative as well, and the comic elements were awesome. The entire package was brilliant.

Somehow, I don't think I'll like FEAR. From what I've seen in the trailers and reviews, the environments seem dull, claustrophobic and monotonous. The gameplay also seems repetitive. The fact that my GTX gets its a** handed to it also isn't very pleasant, and I don't even want fancy soft shadows etc. All that I ask for is the ability to play at my native 1280 resolution with 4xAA/8xAF at 50 fps, but it won't even give me that much

However, after reading the fantastic feedback you guys are giving for this game, I'm getting more and more swayed. *Especially* since you brought up NOLF2, and agreed that Monolith has lived up to the standards they had set for themselves.

I was very dissapointed with Monoliths treatment of AvP 2. Had hoped for less quake, more sim approach. At any rate, from what little I have seen of F.E.A.R., I wouldn`t mind if Monolith took another run at AvP. But stick to the movie instead of trying to rewrite it. It is one thing to try to come up with something on your own when the idea is totally original, and yet another to think your story is gonna do justice to a well known movie licence.

I thought AvP was a comic book or series of books before the movie...anyhoo

http://www.planetshogo.com/ for those that want info on Shogo

Went through Gamerankings.com and pulled up monolith's games...a most impressive track record

NOLF 2 = 91%
NOLF 1 = 88%
Contract JACK = 51%
Tron 2.0 = 84%
AvP2 = 84%
Shogo = 81%
Sanity = 71%
FEAR = 89%
Blood 2 = 65%

OH DANG! CLAW! What memories. That was seriously one of the best games ever (for it's time). Maybe it's because I was young and seriously enjoyed that kind of thing... but still I just remember claw having an AWESOME story and Ninja-Gaiden-hard bosses.

I just wish I had a chance to try the 64 person multiplayer. Not sure it worked but I imagine it would have been mayhem.
