Irritated Where's the intro logos?!
I was wondering since i started up my first game...
The 3DR or HHS logo's aren't appearing as an intro video or anything... That's really too bad, and i'm sure that at least the 3DR logo was in before... (Joe mentioned it once i think)

Any idea of what's wrong..? I don't see anything that should be wrong with my PC which could disable this... If everyone else encounters this, i must assume they cut it out form the full version... (what a shame if so... )

Re: Where's the damn intro logo's..?!
Actually, i like the fact that the game goes right down to business when you start it. Those intros can get annoying after the first couple of times you start the game.

thanks 3dr/hh/2k for going straight to the menu!

Ditto here. I'm glad it's not there. Having to sit through 5 minutes of logos before getting into a game is just annoying. Epecially these games that feel the need to tell you the publisher, the developer, the pet cat of the lead programmer, how it runs better on NVidia/ATI/Creative Labs/Intel/AMD/coffee, each with its respective separate logo animation. Prey missing out on all that garbage is a breath of fresh air.

Most game intro's can be skipped, by pressing any key (Damn BF2 for NOT having this though)
Other games, even has an option to disable it...

Anyways, i just really wanted to see a new, fresh 3DR logo, since it's quite a long time ago since i saw it last time, in a game... (DN:MP was the last one if i remember correctly)

A skippable Human Head/3DR/2k Games intro would have been nice. Gotta pimp the good guys' names.

Re: Where's the damn intro logo's..?!
logos can be the most frustrating thing in the world when a game is unstable on your computer and you have to keep restarting, or your testing something which involves starting the game alot. (think valve. it's not long but I'm so bored of that guy with the eye thing, and it crashes quite alot for me.).

Yeah... try starting Max Payne on Win XP without the -skipstartup command line in the shortcut. It's fun how logos aren't compatible with your OS and keep crashing the game, which otherwise runs perfectly fine.

I'll usually watch the intro videos once, for some fun animation, after which command-line prompts are used to get rid of them.

I missed the logo's as well.

I was hoping for somethign similar to the original and cool logo intro that max Payne 2 had. But when it went straight into the menu I was a bit let down.

Having it on the Demo is better than on the retail. Afterall, the demo is to advertise the game. Once you get the game, why need to advertise anymore?

Whoops. You guys are right. The 3D Realms and Human Head logos appear in the Prey supertrailer.



This pic doesn't do it justice. You need to see it in action.
It's nice to see a real snazzy 3DR logo.

Why no bumper/logo movies?
I was wondering why 3DRealms and Human Head chose not to show any of their logos like they did in some of the official trailers... Not that it takes anything away from this great game for me, but it sure struck me as a bit odd.

Well I'm glad they didn't because it loads the game quicker. Plus, when you start a new game it states all the required info.

We purposely left out the opening logos because let's face it...who gives a poop about them!? Seriously, we left them out because as gamers ourselves, we hate them and just want to get into the game as quick as possible.

I like that very much!

But it would have been nice to view the logos when you start a new game. Just like when you select 'play movie' on a dvd.

Re: Where's the intro logos?!
This is a refreshing decision considering that I am starting to see "unskippable" splash logos/ads in some games when they are launched now. If you think that's annoying the first time, it's really super fun after you've launched the game a few dozen times... :-/

A good intro (with or without logo's) could get you pumped to play the game.
If it's integrated well it is not annoying.
The LucasArts classic adventures, they had damn fine intro sequences and wouldn't be the same without them.
I missed the logos and a proper intro for Prey.
The start of the game for me sucked. I had to do something about the horrible tearing before i could even bring myself to begin playing the game. That was more annoying then a logo at startup.

Is this just for Prey or is this policy to be repeated for every 3D Realms game in future?

yep i wondered about this to they looked cool in the prey 360 demo...

well if its not too much to ask could they be added in a patch...?
i like game intros actually i barely skip them.. sometimes i do..
plus you could make it so that you could add -skipintro to the shortcut...
