Re: Old story about an Oni.. Prequel?

Dang their site doesn't have anything about it except for three pictures. sad
That would've been so cool...
Also, the site you could play from is down.. but you can still get the main file, though not the rest (wasn't archived): http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://wap.oni-game.com/

EDIT:
Oh my god.. I'm looking over the original http://oni-game.com site..

Re: Old story about an Oni.. Prequel?

They should really port Oni onto PSP. I'd actually buy a PSP then smile
And multiplayer is not a dream, technically. EdT has seen it live.
The only thing is: if they cut it, could it be it actually sucked? sad
(I can imagine Oni multiplayer being cheaterly or frustrating)

From Rampancy.net http://rampancy.net/games/oni?page=3

After speaking with Bungie's Doug Zartman on the reports at Blue's News and Gamefan about Oni netplay being scrapped, we have some mixed news. Yes, those reports are true--the sentiment around here is universally do it properly, or don't do it all. Due to the latency issues with Oni's netplay (apparently there were modem builds, and they simply didn't work out), it was decided that internet play wasn't going to work out. And due to the investment in time required to create netmaps and netgames for LAN players, LAN play was shelved in the interest of concentrating on the solo game.

There is, however, a ray of hope. Doug mentioned that Bungie may return to the engine, presumably post release, and revisit the netplay problems. They certainly do recognize the awesome netplay potential of this game, and netplay has been done, so such a thing isn't completely out of the question. No promises, though... stay tuned.

Hey, almost forgot Zartman (the guy who voiced the comguys) was Public Relations.

LAN play was shelved in the interest of concentrating on the solo game.

Yeah, right, like they really concentrated on the quality of the single-player missions...
OK, so it didn't suck. So they just über-underestimated the potential of LAN gaming smile

Re: Old story about an Oni.. Prequel?

I was thinking the same thing about the PSP, though the controls are a little lacking, it would be a easy, not very costly way to make an Oni game, for the rights holders.
