Wot I Think: F.3.A.R

By Jim Rossignol on June 28th, 2011.

Dance, DANCE!
F.3.A.R. has leapt into our lives with a butcher’s hook in its hand and a glint of innovative asymmetric co-op in its eye. But does it chill the blood, or simply apply a damp rag to our fevered brow? Allow me to turn dramatically to the camera and tell you Wot I Think.

Scare Tactics: Fear 3 Multiplayer Trailer

By Quintin Smith on April 15th, 2011.

F**k off.

A trailer’s been released covering upcoming horror FPS F.E.A.R. 3’s range of innovative multiplayer modes, namely Contractions, Soul Survivor, Soul King (which sounds like “Sulking” to me) and, of course, F**king Run. Turns out F.E.A.R. 3’s getting released on May 24th, just a couple of weeks after Brink, which is coming out one week after Section 8: Prejudice. Hmm. That’s unlikely to turn out well for anyone involved.

Pregnant With Fear: F.E.A.R. 3 Story Trailer

By John Walker on March 30th, 2011.

Is it possible to name a jpeg sarcastically?

FEAR 3, they say, is going to have a story. Let me guess: annoyed girl makes spooky things happen to a man? Well, you can see just how right I am by watching the new story trailer below. I’ll watch it now…

Ferocious Fettel Footage From F3AR

By Jim Rossignol on February 14th, 2011.

Popping a zit had unexpected consequences
Ferocious! That’s right: it’s some single-player footage of F.E.A.R. 3‘s psychic badman in action. Paxton Fettel will be the second playable character in the third Fear game, and he’s going to be distinctly unpleasant to his enemies, as you can see here. The footage (below) also shows off the results of various telekinetic evisceration procedures. It’s a bit messy.
This way! WooooOOOOooo>>

Attack Of The Gloom: F.E.A.R. 3 Screenshots

By John Walker on February 3rd, 2011.

Yeah, you did the standing and staring thing maybe a bit too often in the first two games.

F.E.A.R. 3, as Monolith still insist on naming it, is out at the end of March. The March Of A Million Games, as I will now start calling it. Copyright. Trademark. Patent. But what, you scream at the sky, does it look like? Well, if you’ll make your way downstairs to the creepy, poorly lit basement, you’ll find eleven new creepy, poorly lit screenshots.

No F3AR: Not Until May, Anyway

By Jim Rossignol on January 13th, 2011.


Here is the news about F.E.A.R. 3: it has been delayed. Warner Bros confirmed last night that the spooky shooter sequel would not arrive until May. We are going to assume that is because Day 1 Studios are making it awesome. Also, did everyone know that Jon Carpenter was helping with the cutscenes? I’d missed that somehow, but there it is.

I really liked the original game, but the subsequent stuff has been a bit tedious. I’m rather hoping this, with its superstar plot people and “evolved cover system” might be a bit better. It’s troubling me a bit that the trailers have all been live action rubbish and stuff.

F.E.A.R. 3’s Obligatory Halloween Spooks

By Jim Rossignol on October 29th, 2010.


Hell, if anyone was going to make an effort for Halloween, it should probably be the studio making FEAR 3. The new trailer is suitable something-curdling. Also, the game has been dated for 25th March 2011 in the UK, and the 22nd everywhere else. Boo. And I mean that in a derisory/commiseratory sense, rather than the Halloween sense.

F.E.A.R. 3 Is A Mech Worrier

By Jim Rossignol on October 15th, 2010.


Fear 3 has mechs in, and developers Day 1 are keen for us to get to know them a bit better. Don’t worry about the mechs looking all big and scary, they’re almost entirely friendly! They’re called the PA (Power Armor), which we first saw in FEAR1, and EPA (Enhanced Power Armor), which we first saw in FEAR2 (I think), and they both just want to be piloted by a single, caring pilot. They’re also both going to feature heavily in this game, as you can see in the trailer below. Day 1 have sent out a bunch of details about the history and use of mechs, the rambling from which I will spare you, but essentially it suggests that there will be some more depth to what these suits can do, particularly in co-op, in addition to some new features for both PA and EPA. It’s not clear exactly what this will amount to in the game itself, but it’s a tantalising mention, especially with regard to co-op use. Hell, I’ve not been particularly interested in Fear 3 up to this point but, well, maybe…

F3AR: Ridiculous Series Is Still Ridiculous

By Quintin Smith on September 2nd, 2010.


A new F3AR video’s surfaced from PAX, talking about how the franchise is being shifted from Monolith to developers Day 1, mixed with a bunch of footage of the game with some very excitable editing. Check it out after the jump.

What’s happening with F3AR? Well, they’re asking “how they can evolve this franchise, and capture the essence of what it really is, but growing it into something that’s bigger, that’s more amazing and delivers a better experience for the consumer.” I’ve just run that through the Corporate-O-Tron, and it translates as… “More of the same”? Oh, well.
