Final Crisis: Resist

Trautmann, who has much more get-up-and-go than I, it seems, has posted a couple of pages, sans lettering but with colors, from Final Crisis: Resist, which comes out tomorrow.

You can check it out here.

I’m getting to work, now. Tonight, I get drunk.

Whatever happens, I’m getting drunk.

    If I lived anywhere near you, Greg, I’d say first round’s on me. I don’t drink much and *I* want to get drunk tonight.

  2. gpselser

    Saw the preview it looks great. I loved your Checkmate and it great to see you are using the characters again. Will be going out wed to get it.

  3. resolute

    That is also my plan. Whatever happens, there will be alcohol involved.

  4. lithera

    No kidding.

    I’m going to go crazy today.

    I’m STUCK ON A PLANE TODAY.

    I don’t land in Seattle ’til, like, 9:30 or 10.

    No cell, no interwebs.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!

    I wanna get drunk! I WANNA!

    Trautmann, who has much more get-up-and-go than I, it seems…

    It’s not so much “get up and go” as “haven’t managed to get down and stop” in, like, ten days.

    Sleep is for the weak.

    I’ll raise a glass in your honor.

    Awww, Bogie.

    I’ll raise a glass in yours. And here’s hoping that we have good reason to celebrate and not commiserate.

    I so much wish I were able to be there with you guys. :/

    Same sequence, with oddly blurry lettering, here: http://www.newsarama.com/php/multimedia/album_view.php?gid=689

    Man this looks good.

    In the (apparently statistically incredibly unlikely) chance that McCain wins, I have a feeling reading Resist will feel oddly prescient the next morning…

    Thanks for all the great writing, as always.

    The preview looks good. I’ll have to pick it up when I get to my LCS on payday.

    Getting drunk sounds like the popular plan for tonight. Me included. Hopefully it’ll be happy drinking, and not a miserable, moping bout of drinking.

    No drinking, but will be keeping an eye on things. Hope that the comic book store at Union Station has Resist in tomorrow. Will be fun to pick up. Loved your Checkmate and am bummed that its is not part of your regular writing schedule. I second a comment that I say out on the web that you should be allowed to do a series (limited or otherwise) on Mr. Terrific. That would be, well, terrific!

    yeah, but make sure you vote FIRST! you don’t want any “VWIs” :)

    Hey, i saw you playing Fallout 3…what do you think? I’m curious to see what you make of it.

    I’m kinda “hrm” so far on it, to be honest. It seems utterly devoid of the humor that marked the previous two incarnations. I’m also somewhat annoyed by the character creation – very hard to see what I looked like (and honestly, how hard is it to do character creation where you can make yourself look, I dunno, attractive? If I’m spending 50 hours as someone, I’d like to look better than I do in real life).

    Only other thing I can comment on is the combat system. I think I’m in the minority on this, but the VATS system isn’t working for me, at least with regard to how they’ve attempted to mesh it with a first-person shooter feel. Either switch all combat to turn-based, or keep it in FPS, but the way they’re using action points is annoying me.

    Oh, and I don’t like the compass.

    All that said…jury’s still out. I haven’t gotten much further than the school right now, so I can’t really speak to the story.

    Mr. Terrific IS terrific. :D

    You’re welcome to come here if, for some strange, alien, incomprehensible reason, you don’t want to go home.

  18. jared465

    Yeah, I see where you are coming from. I am enjoying it a lot, but it really isn’t doing it for me like Oblivion was – for a whole bunch of reasons.

    You are right on about the humor (and really the overall tone of the game). It sort of feels like the writers understood the humor of the first two, tried to capture it, but basically failed. Not neccesarily because they are bad writers, but more because its just not their thing. Does that make sense? Its like the guys at Bethesda are really big fans of the franchise, but maybe not the best guys to develop it – at least from a storytelling standpoint.

    I like the VATS system – but it is a bit quirky. And the action point regeneration delay can be frustrating, considering the AI doesn’t have the same hinderence. I think the Mass Effect hybrid was a little more successful, but i like how VATS attemps to infuse your RPG traits into the combat.

    Lastly, is it just me, or does somebody need to tell them they can afford motion capture!? Those animations are hurtful!

    shaaah! right!

    After reading Resist, can I just state for the record that I love the way you write Mister Terrific?

    I mean, I love the heck out of Geoff Johns – he writes all of my favorite titles – but whenever Michael shows up in JSA it’s all about how cold and analytical he is and how empty his life is because he’s an atheist, and as an atheist myself that bothers me. Meanwhile in Checkmate and Resist he was consistently portrayed as compassionate man with a healthy love life and his atheism wasn’t even mentioned, and I thought that was great.

    Just wanted to get that out there.

    Well done, sir. They should have a podcast up soon discussing the book as well. You guys deserve every bit of merit you’re receiving.

    :D
