    BloodRayne....is anyone else looking forward to it?

    It isn't due to be released for about a year (probably around October) but i was just wondering what everyone thought of it. i for one certainly am!

    Comming from the makers of Nocturne, which actually was originally going to be Nocturne II they changed the name to BloodRayne (kind of a rip-off joke from Max Payne <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ). Its said to be and looks like it'll be very stealth based with a touch of "Matrix-style" gameplay, and you play as a female dhampire (human/vampire breed) named Blood Rayne (which was obviously once Svetlana in its Nocturne II days).

    Theres some screenshots here:

    ...and from GameSpy<br /> <a href="http://www.gamespy.com/previews/december01/bloodrayne/" target="_blank">http://www.gamespy.com/previews/december01/bloodrayne/</a>

    <br />Or theres a gameplay/engine demo here:

    <br />...and the offical site, will be here (just a couple information links there right now though):

    I'm reserving judgement, but I'll be keeping my eye on it.

    I'd forgotten about that nut case. I guess that's what you get when you witness a resurrection of a thread created 18 years ago.

    I played through Bloodrayne a while back for the first time and didn't think much of it. Very much a product of the post-9/11 era when geek culture lost all concept of good taste and the aesthetics of 90s comics, mallcore and bad German industrial frequently blended together to disgorge diarrhea orgasms of oversexed goth crap.

    Yep, just as tacky and hopeless as the original poster. No need to resurrect.

    No worries June. Some of the content shared by the original was deplorable, best left to the great dustbin of time (and before your time, so not sure why such an old thread needs to be dug up anyway).
