    This is in no way meant to be taken offensively, but they really need to learn the Stargate Canon and fix up the many mistakes on their website.

    @hithere. There are indeed many problems but in the past CME’s developers said they watched all the the stargate episodes. I think SGR could work if they said it was set in another universe (like what happened with Star Trek XI).

    I like that the the game is set after SG-1(the show) ended. It allows for a less restricted story, and with the Goa’uld weaker -because of the Jaffa rebellion- the two sides are more evenly matched. Really looking forward to this game.

    It´s nice to read a few things about this game.
    Thanks. I´m very curious. Is there any speculation on what kind of pc I´m gonna need to be able to run this game smoothly?

    mistergroenevingers, check out their website, they have recommended specifications there. I think it’s stargateresistance.com, but a google should be suffice.

    I blame MGM for selling the license to totally useless developers and publishers. Just think how we could get some really impressive amazing multiplatform games with exciting stories and gameplay if someone like Ubisoft had the license, or atleast EA or Activision Blizzard. But no, first it was the useless JoWood and then this guys… Now I don’t have anything directly against them, but they haven’t really proven themselves as capable, they as a team didn’t do anything, and thats why this game will, sadly, flop.

    Yxelione MGM were approached by the 3 men who formed CME and MGM paid them for the license, maybe no other company wanted the license.

    Aaron Meehan: Why would MGM, the owner of Stargate, pay anyone for the license? O_o
    Either way, it’s MGM that should’ve approached someone, not wait for golden bricks to fall from the sky…

    @Aaron Meehan
    Are you saying that the guys from CME went to MGM asking for the licence to make a Stargate game and then MGM said “Sure here’s a license and here’s a wad of cash to get you started.”?

    @Striker7770
    A shooter is a game where you basically just shoot at stuff with some big honking guns. The online part indicates that this game is ment to be played over the internet with/against other people.

    Gold falling from the sky actually sounds kinda nice. I could use some. I hope it won’t be bricks though coz that’d hurt. ;)

    “GW: Will I be able to play this game by myself, in a single-player mode (such as pre-made levels or campaigns)? Is there any offline play available?

    KD: Stargate Resistance is a team-based online game, so no.”

    I’m glad they addressed this. I won’t be buying it. =

    I agree the lack of a single player option is somewhat of a put off. I’m hoping Stargate Worlds will have that. Though it would be fun to play online against other people.

    I don’t expect a SP feature for a MMO.
    This thing will be a OTPS OnlineThirdPersonShooter.

    I don’t like playing online. Prefere SP or COÖPplay.
    but will buy it. its less scary then MMO.

    @ Yxelione

    EA? Seriously? Granted, they have improved a little lately, but personally I still hold a slight grudge against them. But then, I don’t call them Electronic Satan anymore, so that’s good.

    Capcom would be a far better choice, in my opinion. Or perhaps Konami, or High Voltage, the developer of The Conduit.

    @mindwarped means its an online game only with no offline play (So no single-player). Team-based online games are where you more or less team up with online players against another team of online players.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa… its NOT gonna be on the Xbox or PS3? >:-o
    Thats… just… not… RIGHT! I hate playing games on my computer because my computer is a laptop (im a college student), and it doesn’t play games well. Thats why I have a 360: its my gaming machine. As much as I want to play SGR, I can’t buy a copy of it only to find my laptop can’t run it, just like other games I’ve tried to play. I think the developers should try and put it on the consoles and release it during winter 2010. Its perfect: all the high-powered sequels for the XBOX (MW2, AC2, ME2, L4D2, etc) will not have a follow up for at least 1-2 years, the holidays are always a good time to release games, and SGU will be on hiatus so there will be a vacuum of Stargate in our lives (or for the haters of SGU like me, the vacuum still exists). Or better yet: make Resistance Downloadable content for both consoles (Wii doesn’t count), just like another smash hit DLC game called Battlefield 1942.
    If CME was smart(er), they’d put it as a DLC game for the consoles as soon as they can. It has enormous potential there and may help draw people into the SG universe by providing a conduit for online shooter fans to see what Stargate is all about.

    Oh no!! It’s a delayed millennium bug!
    I’m getting these error messages all over Gateworld.

    “Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

    They’re both in the articles and all the comments.

    First let me say im a huge fan of the tv-series but this game makes me sad

    1: online only….hmm, not positive but still ill probably would have tried it.
    2: PC only…wtf! something like this is something that would really work on consoles but still…I would have proably tried it

    But then I went to the site and saw the screenshots and I went omg…… It looks so bad its not even funny, even 3 years ago these graphics where barely passable. Low res textures, bad lighting, complete lack of shadows (I do not count a slightly darker area as a shadow, Im pointing at the characters tho most setpieces do seem to have some form of shaped shadow), great bland walls with a simple texture.

    Textbook example that a good engine aint everything if you do not take the time to make it work….

    At this state -> a definitly big nono

    so sad :( I would love to play a good stargategame :(

    I have high hopes and low expectation for this game and SGW as well. I totally agree that they should have sold the rights to one of the big name game makers, I said so back when I first heard about SG:Alliance. This game is a good idea (much more so than an MMO) but it is high maintenance and that will hold it and the company back. They needed to start out with something to bring in some money and has little upkeep like a RPG or simple FPS to get the name out there. Jumping into dynamic online is going to bring these titles down.

    This hurts me as a fan of video games, and that of a Stargate fan; both are getting the shaft.

    Here’s a hint to the developers: Okay, with games like Left 4 Dead, Modern Warfare 2, Rainbow Six: Vegas, what’s the pattern you’re seeing in today’s shooters?

    For one, they have a single player. Why this is overlooked as a “meh” subject to the developers, I’ll never know. Oh, just… no single player experience? That’s sure going to grab people in! Great job no-name developer, you’re onto a fantastic start.

    Two, they’re on more than one machine that can play them; 360 and PS3. I hate to break it to you, but, you’re no Blizzard. Just because you’d LIKE to be them by making a third-person game with low-res graphics in a game that requires you to play online, does not make you them. I, for one, can’t stand WoW. I prefer my shooters to be a modern age shooter, which brings me to another point.

    You know another pattern these games have that yours won’t? They’re actually first-person shooters. Hell, even Rainbow Six: Vegas delves into the third-person with wall-hugging and blind fire, but a whole game that’s restricted to that of an over the shoulder view, one that will look like crap, to boot? Yeah, no thanks.

    And, don’t give me this “You haven’t played it, you don’t know” crap. Of course I know, it’s being made by a no-named developer (not to say that’s a sure-thing way of knowing it’ll suck and flop, but, it sure isn’t helping).

    Do me a favor, ask a random person, that is before Stargate Universe, what Stargate was. I’ll do you a favor by telling you, most people don’t know about it. Most people who do know about it, know it because there was a movie called Stargate, the movie that started it all. Seriously, ask a random person if they’ve ever watched the series. I’ve got tons of friends, tons of family and know a lot of people. Guess what? I’m the only one that watches it. I know people from work, I know people from online, I know people from playing GOOD video games online, you know, the kind that actually have a single player? One that is both consoles and PC? One that actually has something worth while? And guess what? They’ve never heard of it, either, and those that have? Don’t watch it.

    So, my point is this: For a show that is not that well known, or watched aside from us people who obviously watch it, are a fan of it, and would love a good game come out of it… why in the hell would you hand this over to such a team that shouldn’t be doing this game? Hell, MGM, I know it’s not THAT known, but could you of least found a company that could…

    You know what? I’m done. I’ve said what I wanted to say. This game will be horrible, it will flop, and the sad part is, nobody will even know about it.

    Could be they aim voor stargate fan base. Wich aren’t high budged hardcore gamers. So they aim voor a nice and light online experience where you don’t need the power of a DX11 5870 card. or G200/RV770 ish
    But a old 8600GT or something little better will do. Just reach for a large audience then fancy gFX that get the masses to onder 15fps.

    That Counterstrike vs crysis. Altho I prefere crysis. But I understand that they don’t want to high spects. to avoid alianating the mass audience.

    i think they took star gate worlds, deleted some stuff, made some new stuff and remade the entier plot then put it out so that ppl can pass the time untill stargate worlds comes out but this is still awsome

    @That’s not what they claim. But they have the full Unreal3 engine. And as dev’s they can do a total conversion, wenn they have a lot already aviable. This time the same theme but from MMO to online RPGFPS.

    For a second there I had hope for a single player game with a cool and gripping story, but no. I’m tired of lame on-line games already. There should be Stargate adventure games with puzzles, SG RPG’s, SG shooters! Even space sims and fighter sims, and there’s nothing!! :(

    @only_1_mac amen…

    only thing I would add, is that CME has had plenty of opportunity to prove themselves at least a caring company, but they obviously care nothing for the franchise or the fans. Otherwise they would have bothered to update us more than say once ever 6 months.

    First off, I just wanted to say that I am NOT a fan of this game!! I think MGM really dropped the ball on this, and the game will flop, simply because they did not pay ANY attention at all to their fan base when deciding to create a game for Stargate. The FANBASE ,and Peter Deluise for that matter (producer of the television series, for those who don’t know), wanted Stargate SG-1: The Alliance, or something of that nature (first person, single player), NOT a third-person, multiplayer!! It’s absolutely ludicrous that they even considered this game. It just goes to show how off-base and out-of-touch they really are with Stargate fans, especially considering the new Stargate show they’re making, that’s more of a Battlestar wannabe. This game is pretty, but does not reflect the fanbase that would consider buying a game based on Stargate. That said, I for one will not be buying a copy, or supporting MGM in any of their future Stargate endeavours.
