    I think Quake 4 and Wolf 09 were pretty good. Singularity... I remember I played it, but did I even finish it? ;)

    Singularity is bretty GUT.
    I can't vouch ofr it personally, but bpgcodex very own bad dragon dildo reviewer SexBad says that Wolf09 is breddy good (def. better than popamole nuWolfenstein or nuDoom).

    Disagree. Singularity was alright on its own, and even good if compared to other FPS games that came out in 2010.

    ...but it was still garbage compared to average Raven's game.
    They can do better.

    I played Singularity years after it was released and i liked it, but you could see the troubled development it had. It was an ok experience, but nothing i'd play again. Quake 4 is my favorite of the four (EDIT: i meant three and was referring to the games mentioned, not the Quake games of which my favorite is of course the first one by far), but mainly because i like how the gunplay feels and the way the Doom 3 engine looks. Also the weird mix of flesh and machine visual design is neat, even if it doesn't make much sense (although i suppose neither did the "stroggification" bits in Quake 2). I've actually beat the game a few times and probably will play it again at some point.

    Wolfenstein 2009... all i remember is this.

    TBH my favorite FPS (ish) that Raven made is Hexen 2 and that is mainly because you had to search every nook and cranny and solve puzzles to progress. But that was also the last game that had this sort of design since it was kinda unpopular and sadly none of these new FPS games that are supposedly inspired by Hexen 2 have it - their inspiration comes as far as the visual design.

    As for Prodeus, the trailer looks nice and the music is nice, but i'm not fully sold. Of all "neo-retro" FPS games, the one that most piques my interest is Ion Maiden and after that Dusk - mainly because both seem to get the level design right.

    Judging by the trailer alone, it doesn't look bad. Hits some good notes, a few others are iffy, but on the whole, it could be good.

    Just 50k bucks for that KS seems mighty suspicious tho.

    Looks as though they made it in full fidelity, then applied a pixely filter and took some animation frames out to make it seem retro. Result is off - more or less along the lines of those DOOM mods that pilfer 3D models from AAA games. The uncanny valley of inanimate objects, if you will.

    I'm enjoying the recent flood of retro shooters, but I'm not sold on what's shown here.

    Their page could really do with some more information. I don't know what the above is supposed to mean? Is it for the levels made with their level editor?

    I wonder to what degree the whole "3d game but with sprited enemies/player hands" shtick is WIP, but I gotta say it looks pretty weird.

    Hope the red flash-up damage indicator (tm) can be turned off because it's lame.

    Quake 4 was hot garbage. Wolfenstein '09 was actually pretty good, I thought. Not amazing but solid shooting, cool weapons, decent environments with some openness. I've played through it multiple times. Granted I have a hard-on for retro future type shit, so it's up my alley. Singularity I remember being an okay Bioshock clone but too linear, IIRC.

    If they really want to improve visual clarity, they should start by scaling down that intrusive-ass Metroid Prime HUD.

    Not a fan of the red flash, either, but this is probably the first video of this game that looked somewhat interesting to me. I also hope they drop the terrible default UI and stick to something "normal" by default.

    Yes, I'm aware of the different UI options and I like that they let the player choose. However, I think they should drop the default UI and use one of the more traditional and compact ones for all promo material.

    Trailer looked super bad (like someone made an ordinary looking game and then added a pixelization filter). The in engine gameplay looks better, but still very mediocre.

    Also please reduce the size of the simpler UI ffs, it looks like console shit.
