Vanguard: Normandy 1944
« on: September 06, 2018, 06:54:21 AM »
I had not heard about this WWII realism shooter.  I guess it is something of a craze (the "realism" -- whatever that means -- sort of post-Red-Orchestra and its mods) -- there's Post Scriptum -- which I think will evolve and stay in the repetoire -- Hell somethin' Somethin' (not Hell on Wheels....but...somethin') and now this. 

Anyway, this seems to be the website of the group that is working on the (game?  Mod?):

https://www.tractionwars.com/index.html

Sounds promising -- can't have too much WWII realism I've always thought.

AND you can be a "revered" (as in Reverend Commando Dude Man) Commando -- in case you have forgotten "Commando" (which I believe -- like "point blank" and "Bygory" is heavily re-routed from the Portuguese) -- yes -- commandos were those people that landed in tricky spots and fought hard.  OR the 6th Airborne (yes. the ones that went to Normandy by air for the most part).  Or the dreaded Wehrmacht Ostruppen and Ear-and-Stomach battalions!  And Krug (I hope) as the Final Boss:

Right!!!!

Don't see any vehicles. It does look good though without reading the site yet.
Another "realistic" ww2 shooter. However it does not seem to me to be superior to Post Scriptum in any way, no vehicles in sight for a start. It is interesting to see just how many competing ww2 shooters are coming atm. We have Hell Let Loose, Post Scriptum (released just now), Vanguard, Battlefield 5, Call of duty ww2 (recent release) amongst what I am sure are a few more.

Well, we did get to hear "Merville Battery, captured by my regiment." (Mengjaio notes: ie Parachute and maybe the 3rd battalion IIRC?)

Single player, or will this be just another wasted opportunity that caters solely to the mp crowd?

  Looks multiplayer to me.  Don't you want to shoot your way through Oistreham?  (note: no footage was harmed in not displaying the
as-yet-not-built Oistreham portion of the Commando module.)

The problem with all these MP shooters is the bottom dwellers who use aimbot and such.  They ruin the games for me anyway.

Other people ruin almost everything for me. Do I have to beg for single player?

  Re: Vanguard -- great name!  CryEngineV!  Weirdness!  Early Access!  I'll be there.  I suspect we will get to storm the Merville battery and take that bridge near Benonville a few hundred times before the commandos come ashore.

  Hell Let loose and Post scriptum -- Both Unreal4 I think.  I believe I'll just stick to Post Scriptum since the horrible graphics are not as bloomy and murky and fuzzy as what I've seen from Hell-in-anutshell-let -loose.

   Battlefield V and Call-of-Duty -- I can just go back to Heroes and generals and/or War thunder for unimaginative fantasy battle games festooned with glowing messages -- the only glowing message you get in Post scriptum warns you not to shoot people on your side (in green or blue).  Oh you also get "projectile destroyed"....but that's kinda metaphysical.

Aimbot? Seriously?  :uglystupid2:

One MORE reason I don't play MP stuff.
