  1. They didn’t use two design teams really. Illfonic made the game. But they moved on to make Predator. Black Tower just took over for Illfonic to provide maintenance to F13. Nothing more.
  2. I don’t think Black Tower is necessarily their choice for an upcoming game because of the work they’ve done on F13. Black Tower was said to be smaller than Illfonic, and Illfonic isn’t a large team at all. I’m as curious as you guys are, but I’m not down with the idea of ripping Gun to shreds every day for things I’m dissatisfied with, or accuse them of lying about everything. I’ve made peace with that already. Mistakes were made, and our only hope is that lessons were learned. I own F13 and all DLC for every platform now, so despite its flaws, there’s a reason I come back. It’s the first time I bought 4 copies of the same game. So something there was done right. That’s why I’m not concerned about them trying to get licenses. I’d much rather them create their own IP, but I’d love for the gameplay to return. Since the lawsuit, I’ve always said that I thought they should revive the original Summer Camp idea. To me, it’s a gold mine. Just imagine a more polished, bug-free F13-style game, but with endless possibilities for content. I don’t play F13 for Jason, so the license means nothing to me.
  3. I don’t think any developer or publisher will reveal what they’re working on because a forum member somewhere demands it. Most have plans ahead of time of when they reveal something. The presentation is a part of the art, and most want to do it when the time is right. You don’t just want to throw stuff out there before it’s ready. You want to present it in a way that’ll generate excitement for fans.
  4. See, for me, grabbing up licenses is bad news. Licenses aren’t cheap, and they come with restrictions. I’m actually surprised they were able to get away with everything they did in F13 (like changing the mythos and making stuff up). The gameplay here is in place yes, but Halloween didn’t really become a hack n’ slash franchise until later. That franchise is more about suspense, story and character development. F13’s gameplay would be fun, and Gun knows how to get the fan service right, but can you just replace the killer and locations and call it a new game? I don’t know. In addition, would they be able to make whatever new content they wanted? With their own IP, they can throw the rules out the window and do what they want, release whatever they want, and no one can do anything about it. To me, the only good thing about getting a Halloween license is that they wouldn’t be able to put Myers on a spaceship. Oh GAWD, I hope I didn’t give anyone ideas...
  5. Absolutely. And no matter who you end up with, they’re always in their default clothing too, no matter how you have them clothed. While in the menus, you can see your character and Jason icons go from your pick to the random icon by themselves without warning. Even if those icons don’t change though, I almost never play as the person I chose. It’s super annoying, and causes lots of people to drop out of a round.
  6. I just want to use the counselor I picked in the Switch version of the game. I own every platform version of the game, and Switch is the only version that’ll give me a random counselor or Jason in 3 out of 5 rounds.
  7. From the way you describe everyone that’s not you, it sounds like you’re the toxic one, homie. I don’t like undesirable personalities in my games either, but I can’t blame the game for it. That’s a society thing.
  8. I sincerely hope you take this idea forward with your original Summer Camp idea. Does this gameplay really need a license? I understand some bought it for Jason alone, but the concept itself — using your own IP — is a gold mine. I’ve played them all: DBD, Hide Or Die, Soul at Stake... and I recently got hands-on time with Monstrum 2, and none of them come close.
  9. Nah, it doesn’t work. It was ok last night, but every lobby is broken tonight for us. Same issue.
  10. There’s a reality that some are avoiding here, because it’s more convenient to argue. I backed this game. I didn’t jump on the wagon later (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I paid for all the DLC. I played through the game’s toughest times. And played... and played... and played... Which brings me to my point. For the money I put out, I got hundreds of hours out of this game. That’s more I can say for the big budget releases that I’m routinely “told” to like. Games that cost over $100, PLUS lOot bOXiEs and other microtransactions aimed solely to break your wallet. As fan of the game (and franchise), I feel lucky that the game we got — while not perfect — didn’t go the route that some of you wish did. Countless times, I’ve been here, seeing posts about how the game needs to be done by triple A this and that. To be blunt, as someone who knows a little something about the gaming industry, triple A development is the LAST thing you want if you truly want F13 to be faithful to the films and lore. All triple A development would do is create “ninja Jason” fighting super heroes for counselors “in a battle to save the world”. The game you love so much is a combination of development, publishing, players... but what we all have in common is that we’re fans. NEVER would you get the fan service and attention to detail with someone else. All that aside, some of you here have been going out of your way to beat Gun up. No, I’m no knight here to defend Gun. Some of you are just acting like entitled brats. Considering what you’ve paid, and how long you’ve been playing, you MORE than got your money’s worth. Ok, you didn’t get Uber Jason. Um... ok? If you DID get both Uber and Grendel, you’d still be here, bitching. Don’t lie; I’ve been watching y’all forever now. Consider yourself lucky that Jarvis House, Pinehurst, new Jasons and counselors were all FREE DLC. While you might think you were entitled to it, you have NO idea what another publisher would’ve done with that content. And believe me, you don’t wanna know. I’ve had my own issues with communication from Gun; I wish they did a better job of it in the past. And, I wish they didn’t announce and promote a new game mode without knowing what it was going to be. Or promising content that stood a good chance of falling in the crosshairs of the lawsuit. It was a case of putting the cart before the horse. And sure, they can be criticized for that. And should be. But all in all, considering what you got for what you paid, I’d say it’s a pretty good deal, especially these days. I for one, am looking forward to the Switch version. It’ll be the third time I’m buying the game, but there’s something about smashing counselors while laying on the couch with the TV on in the background that gets the attention of my nipples. Instead of continuing to bitch about the lack of new content that you’ve KNOWN wasn’t coming, consider this perspective: The announcement of the game coming to the Switch just keeps the game alive that much longer.
  11. It’ll suck for people who need to talk, but there are so many people on there now that don’t say anything, I don’t know that a lack of chat will make that much of a difference.
  12. New lines of code is not new content. They are free to release the game on any platform they want in its current state without any sort of issue. They will also be able to perform maintanence on the port as necessary. In spite of the lawsuit, they are able to make money on work they’ve already previously released by putting it on a new platform. This doesn’t change.
  13. A port isn’t new content. Stop.😂 That being said, who developed the port to Switch? Was it Black Tower? If it WAS, that raises a plethora of new questions.🤔
  14. I’m on the side of the buff for Jason, and have shown support for that. Jason needs to be threatening. When players are in the pre-match lobby, talking to each other about how they’re going to kill Jason THIS TIME, there’s a problem. That said, I didn’t need a buff. This isn’t me tootin my own horn, but I put the work in. I became good at Jason because I learned. You only learn from playing against people who are better. Over time I learned the counselors best tricks and practiced my own to counter them. So when people say the buff is for Jasons that aren’t very good, I have to admit, that makes me feel a little torn. I only support the Jason buff to keep Jason from being helpless, NOT to give below-average Jasons an advantage over counselors who did their part to put the work in. That shouldn’t be the case on either side. It takes practice like everything else. I don’t need either side getting a “win” button, and wouldn’t support it.
  15. It’s a game about teamwork. Very few players can do it by themselves, but it can certainly be done. The design though is to work as a team. F13 is an interesting social experiment. Will you try to help as many players as you can, help only your friends, or are you entirely out for yourself? Will you help those who are contributing? Will you offer a seat in the car to someone who spent the whole match under a bed, or leave him behind? Seeing this player dynamic is one of the reasons I love the game. I can see how people look at it and figure it’s not a team game, most especially if they’re only out for themselves. But the lone wolf typically doesn’t last against an experienced Jason.
