Friday The 13th Delayed, But Getting Singleplayer

Good horror news/bad(?) horror news. Let’s go good first: upcoming multiplayer slasherfest Friday the 13th: The Game [official site] will be getting a singleplayer side after launch and AI bots too, developers IllFonic and publishers Gun Media have announced. Bad(?) news: it’s delayed from its planned autumn launch into 2017.

That sounds good considering that its rival-to-be Dead by Daylight is also getting its own licensed movie killer, Michael Meyers, but can be janky and lacks singleplayer. It’d be nice for Friday the 13th to arrive proper polished. Read the rest of this entry »

Disposable Teens: Friday The 13th – The Game

Voorhees A Jolly Good Fellow

The latest video for Friday The 13th: The Game [official site] is a montage of gruesome kills. You’ve got fireplace roasting, knife down the throat, limb-lopping bleed-outs, chopping and hacking, eye-popping, skull-crushing (multiple), pitchfork-puncturing (with prolonged eye contact up until the moment of death) and a pickaxe coming down hard on a plaid shirt. That’s not all and you can watch the whole thing below if it’s the kind of thing that might perk you up on a Monday morning.

Friday The 13th: 1v7 Multiplayer Murder On Kickstarter

A 1v7 multiplayer game with a near-supernatural killer hunting down hapless teenagers at a summer camp sounds grand to me. Third-person murderfest Slasher Vol 1: Summer Camp was announced earlier this year, but has since picked up a license to the slasher movies it’s riffing off and is simply Friday the 13th: The Game [official site]. I’m not bothered about the license – Braindead and Hellraiser were more my type – but dang, the game idea tickles my murderfancy. If that’s up your (Elm) street, hey, it’s now on Kickstarter for funds to finish development.

Star Citizen Reveals FPS Component, Illfonic Developing

Star Citizen is all-consuming. It is the devouring omni-game, always in need of more genres to absorb. So comes the official reveal of the FPS ‘module’ of the game, used when not in the pilot seat, be that during planetfall, on stations or just popping out for a quick absolute zero stroll. As rumoured, it’s being outsourced to Nexuiz developers Illfonic. Admiral Chris Roberts, complete in space uniform, was at PAX Australia to show off the first footage of four vs four team battles on a space station. Check it out below.

Nexuiz Beta Seems Popular, New Keys On Saturday

Why can't we have an arena shooter in a park?

Already out on 360 (where it’s received bewilderingly mixed reviews), arena shooter Nexuiz is due to appear on PC on the 3rd May, but the beta is on already. Keys seem to be vanishing fast, but Alienware (they distributing the beta) say another pile will be added on Saturday. This is us giving you a heads up about that.

First-Person Shiner: 12 Mins Of Nexuiz

Judging by that crotch guard, he's not compensating with that gun
So, this video is just 12 minutes and 54 seconds of one of the Nexuiz developers running around a shiny FPS arena commenting on the guns and how the game plays. But its simplicity is the perfect way of presenting the equally simplistic online shooter they’re making: a game where the focus is fast, fluid killamajigging still has a place in my dark, dark heart, and Nexuiz is just that. It has a sticky mortar gun that fires a globby explosive at an enemy that detonates after a few seconds: I like watching people panic, because I’m actually not a very nice person. Video, ho!

Scrabble’s Favourite Shooter: Nexuiz

Brightly coloured death beams and people who inexplicably hop everywhere they go - I remember such places.

What better way to start a Monday than with a new trailer for the “reimagining” of Nexuiz, an arena-based shooter that aims to resurrect warm memories of killing friends in improbable environments? Maybe a preferably beginning would be a stroll through Montmartre, ending with a fresh coffee by the Seine as conversations erudite and elegant intermingle with the aroma of freshly baked bread? Unfortunately, that’s not going to be happening, so instead let’s all feast our faces on a short video that demonstrates some of the many mutators on offer in IllFonic’s ill-titled slice of deathmatchery.
