Unreal Tournament III - Random Encounter
Danny O'Dwyer follows the announcement of a new Unreal Tournament game by firing up Unreal Tournament 3. Is he as good as he used to be? Join the chat and find out!
To bad no one is playing this thing anymore. I remember I got demo disc with some game magazine. Back then I had like really slow PC (Pentium 4, 3GHz and GeForce 6600 I think) And it couldnt run UT3 so well. Then I got better PC and like some time after that saw UT in huge sale, super cheap, then I thought, damn, thats the good game I always wanted to play. And boom, no one is playing it.
Too bad UT3 caught the plague that was consoles, but at least the new UT will be made with the intended input in mind.
OMG I miss this game so much. I have it on Xbox 360 because it was the only thing I owned that could run it, I should pick it up on PC now that I have a decent one.
I've always had an unreal tournament game installed on my machine ever since 1999. without fail even when I've had to reinstall windows, new PCs, upgrades, dead harddrives, the first thing I ever install is always Unreal Tournament. It is, one of greatest franchises of all time for me and even though my AV is currently for battlefield, my heart is always with the UT games. It revolutionized shooters in the same way that Doom or Quake did, it was the first FPS game that had multiplayer as its singleplayer against bots and its amazing still to this day that it is STILL one of the only games out that has multiplayer bots.
Battlefield used to, untill the bad company games where DICE decided to scrap their bot support in favor of just simply all-out online only aside from lame campaigns. UT doesn't do campaigns, its all about the fast arena style twitch action gameplay that draws people to it. I personally loved UT3, I loved it far beyond what UT2k4 was, which was basically UT2k3 just with vehicle support added into it and new maps. I didn't like the full on Gears of War style to the UT3 game though and epic went way over the top with the necris style maps.
The new UT already looks absolutely awesome with what the community has done already, I am so hyped for the new UT I seriously think its going to be EPIC and UNREAL!!!
(see what I did there?) :D
I literally go through the install/uninstall cycle for this game every few months. It's one of my all time favorite shooters, but nobody plays it anymore so I just spend hours on end playing story again and again :P I miss this game.
@neur0sis better now than at E3, i guess :P
@neur0sis and the blank screen takes E3 best in show
@vackillers Pssst, for the record, we don't use that word like that here. So your comment was edited to say "lame campaigns."
@hoyholyhoy personally i enjoyed UT 04 more :(
