“The Solution To Everything You Fear”

Late last night, as I drove around frozen South Western England delivering inebriated people to their homes, I got to discussing F.E.A.R. with one of its fans. The sequel, he said, was one of the games that really excited him for 2009. While I definitely appreciated the original game and its expansions, they're also games that I feel contain a weird tension that they never…

Project Origin Puts F.E.A.R. In Our Eyes

First there was the ludicrous nonsense over Sierra vs. Monolith for the rights to make the sequel to F.E.A.R., and the subsequent debacle that took place with Monolith organising a competition for fans to rename their sequel, resulting in Project Origin. Meanwhile Sierra stomped off with the ball, refusing to play nicely with others, and pretended they were making their own sequel which they would…

RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Housecleaning – Capcom,Warner

Now here’s something I managed to forget about completely until I was sitting in Phoenix Airport, lamenting my missed connecting flight. Capcom actually really quite like the PC. I spent a fair bit of time in the Capcom booth having my arse handed to me in Street Fighter IV by a team of people who apparently came to E3 already unstoppably good at the game,…

Project Origin: More Footage of Shootage

E3 this week, so a whole new bunch of trailers are trickling out onto the electric internet. I love trailers, whether they're pre-rendered or in-engine, whether they feature in-game or are purely cinematic, whether they feature FMV or game or even if they feature the wrong game completely. Go trailers! Go trailers! Go trailers! A New one for Monolith's not-FEAR-except-actually-yes FPS Project Origin beneath the…

Project Origin: First Person Shootings

Proof, if proof were needed that Project Origin is indeed a first person shooter videogame, has arrived in the form of two new in-game footage videos. It really is looking more and more like F.E.A.R. as the days wear on, which is good if you liked that game, and kind of an indifferent shrug "what-else-is-on" kind of situation if you didn't. But perhaps it will…

Project Origin: Shootage Footage

Since the previous post was eye-rolling at a game's unfortunate name, we'll let Project Origin off from its RPS-traditional moniker-mocking and just deal with it seriously. Or, at least, as seriously as we ever get. Monolith have released some "Pre-Beta" footage of their forthcoming not-sequel-but-yes-but-no to their FEAR shootage. You'll find it, along with second-by-second analysis, beneath the cut.

Something Else To Fear

A new Project Origin trailer appears, in what appears to be a series attempting to put us off the game as much as possible. This time with 34 seconds of company logos! We'd show you far more of ourselves, Gametrailers. More floating down dingy corridors, more sudden cuts to a monster, and then some game footage that could come from any shooter ever. (Although Mr…

Games for 2008: Project Origin

While we've previously talked about how weren't exactly impressed with the name they settled on - though we do like the list of close-but-no-cigars, including the immortal Little Miss Bloodshine - the actual whole story behind the change itself remains perhaps the most fascinating of recent times. Publisher keeping the name while the Developer keeps the engine has happened before, of course (with the separate…

The Origin of Speechless

I'm terribly sorry, but I'm going to be a bit of a bitch now. If I was Monolith and, as a result of a shouting match with my publisher, I now had to make my F.E.A.R. sequel under an entirely different name, I'd have been very, very glad of the opportunity to ditch the childish F.U.L.L.S.T.O.P.S. and come up with something that didn't sound like…
