ShootMania Storm - Frag Style Trailer

Ouch! Somebody needs to get a Kickstopper™ going for this game!

That was a pretty horrible video.

The whole "one weapon" premise bothers me, especially coming from a competitive Quake player's point of view - knowing when to switch your weapon to meet specific tactical needs (i.e. switching from railgun to shotgun based on your range to the target) is a hallmark of skilled combat. This... abomination looks like it will amount to twitch button-mashing for most players.

Plus, I'm already bored to tears of seeing the same castle environment. Would much rather prefer to see more urban brick/concrete or sci-fi glass/metalic to better compliment the very out-of-place Tron reject characters.

The 3v3 format is easier to deal with for setting up practices, and for travel expenses to tourneys.
The Railgun vs. Rocket launchers 3 v 1 format is super easy to follow what is going on and easy to narrate/cast.
The short short round time makes it easy to follow and to insert commercials.

Any kind of team vs. team gameplay is just too hard to explain what is going on, since there's multiple things going on at once.

Although it feels like a barebones quake 3 mod, this has a pretty good chance of getting picked up by networks interested in telecasting games tourneys.
