Sledge you sly dog





Huzzah! This is the best news!


TRS is back in the game! :zombie: :green_heart:


Told ya you had to come check out the forum!


What exactly is amazing about this? It’s just an announcement that reveals absolutely nothing about the game other than that it will be co-op zombie shooter. No screenshots, no gameplay videos, no details of any kind about anything whatsofuckingever. If this is your description of “AWESOME”, then I shudder to think how you react to something tangible, like say trailers… Man, local paramedics have to be really busy with you.


Hey fun police, let people be excited about things.


He surely can, as I surely can comment on it.




I have been summoned from the depths of hell to the TRS realm:


Haven’t seen that avatar in a while. Welcome back!


I never liked the L4D games. I do hope this has more depth to it than those.
Expecting Evolve level of depth is unreasonable but please more than just shooting boring brainless ai that run at you.


This only made me want it MORE!


I’m excited to see what you have in store for us, TRS.


So I guess you hate doom shooters, eh?


No, the DOOM games look really fun and I have been meaning to play them


I didn’t mean DOOM in particular, but all doom shooters, like Painkiller, Serious Sam, Bulletstorm, Hard Reset and Shadow Warrior.


I would judge each game individually
