New monolith project - Blood3? Fear3? NOLF3? Place your bet

Post by zZaRDoZz » Thu Apr 02, 2009 04:23 am

The new forum better be one Hell of a web site seeing it's taking them soo long to put it up.


EDIT #3 or 4...I've lost count

Agreed. I wonder why they feel it wise to have the whole site down for months, especially when they had a new product release. If they are building a new website, well that is fine, but why did you have to have the regular one down for months? Couldn't you build it and test it on a local server?

'Tis a mystery to me as well, friends. Maybe they're doing something big... "revolutionary," perhaps?

I originally assumed they were preparing the site for a new game, but if that`s the case then what the hell is taking them so long? I guess they`re taking their sweet time to cook up a surprise for everyone. *Gets extremely excited if it turns out to be a new Blood game* :P

It's always nice to hope that's the case. I'd like to think they're looking for financial backing. They can't go on looking forever though. I've always suspected Monolith preferred to have some models and coding done before they even ask for money, at least that's what the shogo2 tease of 2001 looked like from my admittedly distant, soda straw view of the gaming world.

Another take on all this is simple economics. It's entirely possible that Monolith has had to layoff some staff. :(

It's probably for "F.E.A.R. 3 - More Endless Exactly The Same Looking Offices"

I think FEAR is Monolith's horror title baby now, realistically I am hoping for SHOGO 2 from rumors I have heard in the past.

Hmm. I wonder if "M.E.E.T.S.L.O." was the code name.

Working title:

"F.E.A.R. - M.E.E.T.S.L.O."


Kinda has a ring to it.

The word I dont like in that announcement is "Quarantined".

It probably has nothing to do with Blood or Shogo I'm afraid. :(
