I still always think of a Vietnam setting when I hear most of Jimi Hendrixs' songs.

Totally not fitting for a seperate timeline/reality "Nazi future setting" if you ask me.

Tbh I'm pretty skeptical about this game. We've only seen some screen shots but another gritty dark shooter is not something I'm looking forward to.

Ahh well hope they can convince me other wise.

I actually really like the use of music :P

However robots in a Wolfenstein game doesn't sit well. I've been thinking lately this year how much I miss Enemy Territory. That game was the shit

Except for all of the robots and tech in previous Wolfenstein games :P

I'm with Warren Specter on this. This really is hopelessly uninspired, derivative tosh.

I think I'm in a minority when I say this but I thought even the very first wolfenstein was wank and I dont understand why it was ever praised even when it irst released. This back when I saw it running on a friends pc in 93 I think it was. Just awful even then. Doom was something special of course

Probably because of my playing Starfox which was altogether more impressive than Wolfensteins's naff graphics and crap gameplay

Killing Nazis will never get old, but I would really stop this from developing into this mess.

Wow seems like you never played a single Wolfenstein game in your life but you post a negative hatearade on this game... lamer.

Spoilers: There are robots and prototype cyborgs in every Wolfenstein game and yes they are hella fun to kill.

Are Cyborgs and Robots the same thing?

I don't think any real Wolfenstein fan counts 2009 Raven dev Wolfenstein as a legitimate release in the series...
Commented on 2013-05-14 16:31:12
I guess I only played multiplayer. I don't remember any robots/cyborgs in that
My post wasn't "haterade" either. It was hardly even anything

Same genre. And what's a "real Wolfenstein fan?" What counts? RTCW? ET? Wolf3D? All vastly different games of vastly different quality.

And there's a bit of technology floating about Wolfenstein. Starting with Wolf3D. It's always had a bit of occult and tech weirdness. Hardly a straight up WWII motif. That's why it's cool.

    Melmoth @droezelke: i know some people say there's no point in having an xbox if you have windows 10, and at the same time say they would never use windows store. <brainfart> (7 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @aphex187: Of games out now, i'm more interested in some of the Switch exclusives than the PS4 ones. for Xbox,you're covered if you have a good pc, use windows store and don't play in your livingroom. (8 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: why "exclusives". are you talking about games like gears4 and forza that are on Xbox and windows store, or console exclusives like cuphead that are also on steam? (13 minutes ago)

    droezelke @KORNdog: sssst, if you say here that the Switch doesn't sell well, you get butchered... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @aphex187: if i was in the market to play MS's "exclusives" at this point i'd definitely build a PC to access them. especially if you're looking for graphical superiority. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @KORNdog: If you are a pc gamer and fancy a console then PS4 is the only real option to take. Absolutely pointless me buying an XBOX when all their exclusives come to pc anyway. (3 Hours ago)
