1UP: R.O.I.D.S. Preview

1UP writes: "Take a pinch of old-school N.A.R.C.'s action, a sprinkle of Gears of Wars 2's intense gunplay, and wrap it all in an epic Final Fantasy-sized story, and you'd end up with R.O.I.D.S.. The upcoming squad-based shooter/brawler from startup studio ExtrëmGames has high expectations, but after seeing the game in action first-hand it looks like they might just be able to pull it off."

The story is too old to be commented.

ROIDS? Never even heard of this game. Not digging the name but it sounds like it could be interesting.. 360/PC Only? Hrm.

"Killzone 2 may have set the current-gen graphics bar, but R.O.I.D.S. is going to be there to meet that bar toe-to-toe. Screen shots don't do justice to the slick visuals, including almost photo-realistic water effects. And Williams promises the game contains, "Clean bump mapping, zero jaggies, and contextualized normal mapping." If you don't know what that means, just trust me when I say it's game developer-speak for "awesome."

Bold words and you definately have my attention!

EDIT: So some are saying this is April Fools, if so this is the first time I was fooled. I hate the game industry on April 1 since it deals in so much BS and rumors already having a day were these sites are inventing more rumors/BS is lame.

LOL! I saw that but the way 1up was talking like they were going to add comedy to the game I thought it was legit concert art. LOL
