Intro for each Faction/Race?

Post by Talguy 21 » Fri Feb 04, 2011 10:24 pm

Ok, I don't know about you guys, but I thought the Zuul and Morrigi intro videos from their respective expansions were pretty epic. :idea: Hey I know... You guys at Kerberos make intros for the Hivers, Liir, and Tarkas! (Hivers first PLZ)

Yes, maybe after SotS 2 turns into an EA-scale cash cow. :thumbsup:

Sounds cool. It would be great the first couple of times, and when trying out a new race, or returning to one after a while. But realistically after the first few times with a race I would probably just tab through it. So maybe there is not a whole lot of replay value in it - though if they have some footage left over from marketing and publicity efforts it might not be too expensive.

Smaller race-specific videos launched from the SotS-pedia?

Even that might take time and money that doesn't exist.

Depending on when SotS strikes gold it be nice if Kerberos made the intro for the other three races within the expansion packs for SotS ][

I was thinking more of a single intro like FreeSpace 2's. Sets the mood awesomely (is that a word?). A similar atmosphere to the start of it might suit the coming of the Lords of Winter. An intro as awesome as that would definitely have replay value. I keep watching FS2's intro even now. ;)

Just my two pence.

Uh... Wizards? We could try alchemy, too. Or maybe throw Earth into a black hole.

On second thought, maybe we should skip the black hole...

I was looking towards an individual vid for each, such as the BoB intro (Zuul)or The original SotS intro(Humanity) or even AMoC's intro(Our good "friends" The Travellers).

I thought, by posting this reply, I'd open this the masses once again. Intros for the Tarkas and Hivers (To a lesser extent the Liir... the Suul'Ka one MAY work) In that cinematic style would be great; given Kerberos has the time, money, intrest, etc. Though, since I don't have and can't run SoTS ][... Perhaps Youtube? Maybe in an minor patch to :any: ? Both in SoTS ][ and :any: ? (There should be a smiley for SoTS][, too btw.)


Also: I'm back to :any: 1.8.0 courtesy of the Complete Collection. !yay
