Fox Interactive has announced that Monolith will be developing the sequel to Alien versus Predator, based on the latest version of the Lithtech engine. The original game, which I thought was pretty cool btw, was developed by Rebellion. There aren't too many details on the game right now, but they promise these will be announced in the near future.

``We are excited to confirm that a sequel is, in fact, happening and is being developed by Monolith,'' said David Stalker, Producer of ``Aliens versus Predator.'' ``We've listened to the hard-core sci-fi fans and devoted gamers of the original AVP and we are developing a story-driven plot, which will be the cornerstone of the sequel.''

    [Middle English attested in pseudo-Latin fuccant, (they) fuck, deciphered from gxddbov.]

    Word History: The obscenity fuck is a very old word, first recorded in English in the 15th century. Age has not dimmed its shock value, even though it is seen in print much more often now than in the past. Its first known occurrence, in a poem entitled “Flen flyys” written sometime before 1500, is in code, illustrating the unacceptability of the word even then. The poem, composed in a mixture of Latin and English, satirizes the Carmelite friars of Cambridge, England, with the title taken from the first words of the poem, “Flen, flyys, and freris,” that is, “fleas, flies, and friars.” The line that contains fuck reads “Non sunt in coeli, quia gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk.” The Latin words “Non sunt in coeli, quia” mean “they [the friars] are not in heaven, since.” The code “gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk” is easily broken by simply writing the preceding letter in the alphabet. As we decode, we must watch for differences in the alphabet and in spelling between then and now. For g write f; for x, v (used for u and v); d, c; b, a; o, n; v, t; xx, vv (which equals w); k, i; x, v; z, y; t, s; p, o; g, f; i, h; f, e; m, l; and for k, i. This yields “fvccant [a fake Latin form] vvivys of heli.” The whole thus reads in translation: “They are not in heaven because they fuck wives of Ely [a town near Cambridge].”

  • Lithtech is POOP!!! POOP I say!!

    The first game pissed me off in a lot of ways, but was probably one the scariest damm games I every played..that damm motion tracker going off and no knowing where the hell the bugs where...Rebellion screwed up because they didnt make any plans to have user mods for the game, it was a pain in the ass to edit. I bet those tools at Monolith do the same damm thing. Dont forget to pickup your copy of KISS:Psycho-Circus!! Is it just me or is that the stupidest fucking idea for a game ever made?

    SpiderGoat rules BTW, all worship him.

  • From Voodooextreme:

    Wondering WTF is up with the Voodoo5 6000? So was I, so I figured that it was a good time to ask 3dfx's PR man-steak, Brian Burke. Here's his response:

    3dfx is concentrating on maximizing revenues while we ride out our component shortage and executing on future product releases. For the near future, this means making sure the 5500 series is successful. I do not think it is any secret that giving out dates prematurely has hurt our company in the past. The V5 6000 product is in development. We will be releasing the V5 6000 this summer. When the release date solidifies, we will make sure everyone knows what it is.

    So "this summer"...I thought it was Summer now? ;) (ok, so it doesn't end for a while, but still, for those of us that had the late-June/early July in mind, this bites)...
