Ready or Not
« on: April 29, 2021, 04:27:34 PM »
Could have sworn I posted about this one a long time ago, but the thread is hiding from me. Was very excited about it early on, but it ran into trouble in the early alpha phase and the developers looked like they may have lost their way. They seem to have placed the focus back on single player PvE and the latest videos are starting to look very good.

Check out the latest PvE showcase...

Somebody did.
I remember you posting about your exploits with a beta style swat game that was fairly innovative. You posted a fair bit about that game. Could that be this?

This one has had a "troubled" development cycle, but the developers seem to be listening to feedback and might be turning things around for the better. A new alpha build was just released showcasing progress on the single player aspect of the game and so far, I am impressed. Have only played for a few minutes, but if they keep this up Ready or Not will be a fantastic entry into the tactical FPS genre.

I'm really digging it. Very well done so far and extremely challenging.

It's about time they made some progress on this thing.  Love the look and feel, and the music in that promo video is straight out of the SWAT series which really gets my engine revving.

How does one get into the alpha?

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

It seems absurd, but it is absolutely worth it at at the EA asking price. Our OIF/OEF group has been playing the hell out of it.

The game has issues with regards to certain anims, bugs, and RtT like problems, however, this is easily the best tactical shooter I've played since SWAT 4 or the OG GR titles.
