View Thread : Ken "traitor" Lobb speaks


OB1
IGN has an insider-only video interview with Ken Lobb up, and here's a brief summary of some of the more important stuff (at least to me) he talked about:

-Perfect Dark Zero looks amazing

-The multiplayer portion of Conker is the main feature, but the "extra" that is the port of BFD is the most amazing-looking X-Box game Lobb has seen and that the "jillions" of blades of grass swaying in the wind are a sight to behold. Very promising, eh? I thought it was just going to be a straight port.

-Rallisport Challenge 2 is incredible

-Fable is almost done and will be out "this summer"

-Working for MS now is like how it was like working at Nintendo back in the day

-He pronounced "niche" like "nichee" :lol:

-There are currently over 750,000 X-Box Live subscribers. That's subscribers, not just people who got the two months free. That is pretty damn good.

Unless they added a ton of multiplayer modes I don't see much of a reason to get it, but I admit I am intrigued by his comments about the graphics.

Like he'd say anything different...

Fable is almost done and will be out "this summer"

I'm not holding my breath.

I hope they add a pissing tournament :D

Great Rumbler
We can only hope.

Ahhh, but it's not for GC! I hate Nintendo for turning away Rare. And as for K. Lobb, I'm glad that they named the SHITTIEST gun in GE after him.

Big Blue Box said recently that it'll most likely be out by summer but that they don't want to give a definite date just yet. So it looks like it will be done very soon, but perhaps MS might want to release it at another date. Who knows.

Great Rumbler
But if they release it and don't delay it anymore what then will we have to look forward to?! NOTHING!! Because it'll already be out! Don't you see what I'm trying to tell you?!

OB1
Yes! Wait, NO! I want Fable NOW, damnit! I'll blow up if I don't get it soon!!

Great Rumbler
I'll eat a taco if it doesn't come out soon!!

OB1
I just might cry!

I've got a lot of games as it is, so I can wait. Don't want them rushing that game any more.

I heard a long time ago that the Conker remake would also update the graphics...

PDZ will be neato.

I like the Klobb! It's a neato little gun. It certainly isn't worse than the PP7 or DD4 Destrovei (sp?), although it does pale in comparison to the 9mm.

OB1
No matter how many games are released between now and Fable, the wait is still hard as ever for me.

Great Rumbler
DD4 Destrovei

Having two Dostevois was awesome!!

Darunia
It certainly isn't worse than the PP7 or DD4 Destrovei

Yea, the Dostovei was a powerful gun---well, not really, but two were good (which you frequently wound up with in most Soviet-New Russian themed levels. The Klobb was usually a solo gun, and as such it was pathetic.

Sacred Jellybean
Yeah fuckhead, but on the level of the surface, you get dual Klobbs and have to switch to them sometimes to follow the way of the ninja and flip out and kill thousands of guys in a manner of minutes.

You're wrong, but thanks for trying!

Darunia
The klobb was the worst machine gun. Face it.

Sacred Jellybean
Face it, you aren't skilled enough to make mass-homocidal use of a plain but decent gun.

Great Rumbler
I didn't really like the Klobb that much, either...

Sacred Jellybean
Heathens, all of you! It had its perks over the KF7 Soviet... especially in, as I mentioned before, the Surface level. If you play it on 00 Agent, you'll find yourself running out of ammo for both guns (KF7 and Klobb), so you'll have to switch between the two often.

OB1
Haha, beanjo and Darunia are fighting even though they always complain about me and ABF fighting.

Great Rumbler
You and ABF do it all the time, though.

OB1
Yeah I know...


You shut up!

Sacred Jellybean
And end up quoting each other 10,000 times and use more of your posts to insult each other and make accusations, rather than actually solve anything.

Darunia

Whoa--I never complain about you fighting with ABF. That's all Beanjo. I demand a full retraction of that statement at once. :shake:

I can't help it when he spends more time insulting me than responding to my points! :)

Great Rumbler
I'll respond to your posts, you rogue!!
