Thanks For The Shoutout, Prey

Next Friday, Arkane Austin will release their newest game, Prey, closing the loop on a minor four-year meta-story involving that studio and me. It’s only fitting that one of Prey’s achievements is a shoutout to Press Sneak Fucks. Advertisement Some context: in May 2013, I reported that publisherBethesda had tasked Arkane Austin (Dishonored) with developing a reboot of the ill-fated Prey 2. Shortly afterwards, Arkane creative director Raphael Colantonio sent out a rowdy e-mail: When Arkane announced their rebooted version of Prey last year (after at first denying that they were making it), Colantonio wore a t-shirt that I sadly was not able to get my hands on: And now Prey has this achievement: Bethesda still doesn’t acknowledge our existence, but here’s the blunt truth I’d offer Colantonio if they let me sit down with him for an interview: I think Arkane is full of talented people, I can’t wait to play their game, and I appreciate that they have a sense of humor about all this.

Modders Are Creating New Vegas Inside Fallout 4

There are some Fallout fans who consider Fallout: New Vegas to be the best entry in the series. Though that game is indeed great, it hasn’t aged well over the years. Thankfully, a group of modders have gotten together to update New Vegas with the engine from Fallout 4. This ambitious project is being led by a modder named Sir_Bumfrey. As he explained on Reddit, he is in charge of handling the world design of the mod. He has tasked his friends with creating quests and handling scripting. The project is still in its earliest stages, but so far, the towns of Goodsprings and Primm have been finished. See how they are coming along in the video below. [embedded content] Though recreating an entire open-world game map sounds like a daunting challenge, Sir_Bumfrey says it isn’t as difficult as it may seem. In fact, it may get easier over time given how New Vegas was designed. “I have to recreate all the buildings from scratch, but the good thing about New Vegas is that many of the buildings are actually exact copies of others on the map. Essentially the more of READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!

Modder Is Building New Vegas Inside of Fallout 4

Ever wonder what Fallout: New Vegas would look like in in a newer engine? One modder is trying to make that fantasy into a reality, and the progress is sweet. Advertisement The project is the work of Sir_Bumfrey_Diggles, who has already managed to craft Goodsprings and Primm, as you can see in the footage below: Sir_Bumfrey says he is handling the world design of this mod, while his friends will be doing some quests and scripting to make New Vegas come to life. The whole thing still appears to be in very early stages, but what’s there is still pretty exciting for those of us who long for a New Vegas remake. “I have to recreate all the buildings from scratch, but the good thing about New Vegas is that many of the buildings are actually exact copies of others on the map,” Sir_Bumfrey wrote on Reddit. “Essentially the more of the world I build, the quicker I can build. Advertisement “The textures are definitely a bit different as well. I have found textures that can roughly replace the ones from New Vegas but not all of them are going to be perfect.” “The aim of this mod is not…

Hands-On: Prey 2017 is Every Video Game Except Prey 2006

In 2006 there was a video game called Prey. You played as a Cherokee dude shooting aliens in first person on a big space station. For years developers tried and failed to make the sequel the original ending teased. Meanwhile, Arkane Studios started developing its own game about shooting aliens on a big space station in first person, and because Bethesda owned the rights to the Prey brand, we’re finally getting a new Prey by sticking the name of this game. While Prey 2017 may be just a spiritual successor to the original at best (like Final Fantasy for sci-fi shooters) the ideas it’s synthesizing from other games give me some faith. If Dishonored was Arkane Studios basically making a new Thief, Prey is the team’s attempt at making a new System Shock, along with the other sci-fi immersive sims that classic inspired. The demo I played limited me to one section of the haunted, haunting alien-infested space station. But it was a fairly dense and scientific environment where I could test how the systems interacted with each other, and I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of the results. Along with standard shotguns and Half-Life wrenches, I also READ…
