Ion Fury  "formerly Ion Maiden, launching August 15!"

I thought Zazz Zzyzx was being hyperbolic, but wow that rockpapershotgun review is laughable. Why have someone review it that clearly has no interest in that genre?

Its like that one IGN review from long ago about a soccer management game where the reviewer complained about the game and how you never get to play soccer and instead just manage teams... which was the entire point of the game.

Yeah, that's the problem with traditional gayme gernalizm really: games are not movies, it's a highly interactive medium and because of that reason they depend on the player a lot = it's just naturally more subjective so if there's a niche game the reviewer should be someone representing that niche.

holy fuck the culturevulture review almost reads like a fucking parody

Quote

Ion Fury’s biggest flaw is perhaps that it sticks a little too close to the old games it is trying to pay homage to. After all, a lot of game design innovations have come and gone since then. Take the storytelling, for example: nowadays, we often get radio chatter, logs to read, cutscenes to watch and environmental dialogue. This is virtually nonexistent in Ion Fury. Aside from the occasional quip from your character and some video messages from the main bad guy, there is no real story to explore at all.

looooooollllllllll

its ironic that the reviewer compares IF to Half-life when HL itself had none of those things in it.

He complains about directions not being signposted and how all the voice acting is highly annoying. Didn't once mention the map or the fact that you can turn character dialogue off. :dukecigar:

You think these guys can read a map? There is a reason why even Doom 2016 had objective markers. :dukecigar:

There's only one way to handle it: Play the game, make up your own mind. Screw all the reviews.

Absolutely agreed on its shortcomings regarding weapons variety and protagonist personality. It's this close to something next level.

Still a surprisingly solid experience as far as retro FPS throwbacks go, with intriguing opportunities for future gameplay patches and/or sequels."

So is there a console command or option that re enables texture filtering, or we have to wait for the shader?

I don't care what any of the reviews say. This is the first new game I bought in years. Best game of 2019 hands down.


I get where they're coming from, though. I was honestly expecting at least one new weapon besides the Clusterpuck that did some kind of significant damage and had a special "thing." But I guess that's what the bowling bombs are. Which is great. This game is still awesome and I'm not disappointed in the least. People do want a sequel though!

I wanna take a moment to post something sincere:

Your work is an achievement in and of itself. It may not be a perfect game, but it's a hell of a game. I'm proud of you all. I've been rooting you on for years now, and to see it grow over time has been awesome. You guys really did something special. While there is valid criticism out there, don't let the inevitable bullshit get to you. It's a good damn game. Can't wait to see what's next.

Yep, it's true that the arsenal is lacking, honestly it was pretty disappointing to hear that there is no BFG so guess the chaingun or the grenade launcher is your best weapon? Yeah, that's not great plus exotic weaponry is a staple of Build engine shooters. I'm not saying it should be Blood where most of the arsenal is uniquely weird but there should be an exotic weapon.

What I truly don't get is the missing power weapon though because I think the crossbow could have been a really great option for that. In the preview campaign it was just weird because compared to an energy powered precision weapon it sucked in damage output and its secondary fire was useless. It's not the Source engine where you can have fun with sticking enemies to walls, that thing should be a fucking railgun that gibs weaker enemies while the secondary should be a costly, slowly moving projectile that kills every motherfucker in the room if you shoot it with the primary fire. Bam, there's your power weapon, it's worth a damn now. :dukecigar:

Intricate weapon balance or not a classic shooter kinda needs that weapon that has limited ammo but you know that if you fire it things will die.

Edit: Just as kind of an example here's a bit of QCDE action with Duke I've recorded a while back:

See that railgun? You don't need a power weapon instead of that because it's amazing.

Greetings from me as well. What is truly awesome about this game is not being just another retro FPS. There are many retro FPS games with questionable quality and lukewarm efforts. It's a game where the devs understood how to make a retro FPS. You guys didn't pick the Unity engine and create a game with intentionally poor and dated graphics just to have a retro look. You picked an old engine made in 1995, and pushed its limits further (it has been said so many times, that the Build's limits had been reached, but it was always proven wrong... this beauty has no limits!). With this old engine you created something that looks modern in 2019 and might even attract new gen. players. This is something that might show the torchlight to the future developers how to make a retro game. Of course, massive work and concentration, dedication cannot be skipped, there is no easy job for success. But the payoff is massive as well.

I can see why some guys who only played Doom 2016 and Dusk be like 'Hey, this is not what I thought was great about oldschool FPS games!'. Those other retro inspired shooters are much more straight forward and tightly designed, kind of like rollercoaster rides. You have your little segments of exploration with world building and secret hunting and as soon as it starts to feel 'boring', you get thrown into an arena with hordes of enemies and metal music. True oldschool games (and Ion Fury is one of them) demand you to shoot and explore at the same time. That's a a part of your brain that needs to be trained :dukecigar: I love both design philosophies and am glad that there finally is a commercially sold product that is truly oldschool. It's just a shame that some critics don't see it this way...

Hello from dev :dukecigar: (all of us are here pretty much)
Really nice video you had there, thanks for the kind words!

I think what you might want from the game data files is pallmall.ogg :lol:
