LiveFire Not Officially Known As Kill-Test........

Quote:
The official name of our FPS may still be a secret, but that has not stopped Arsenal Megacorp from leaking critical insights into its Experimental Combat Systems. Stage 2 (known as KillTest) is now live on fps.ngmoco.com, and it features our debut trailer.

Our FPS offers 4-player deathmatch over Wifi and 3G. We’ve deployed our innovative TouchAnyhere virtual dual-analog controls for aim and movement. And we allow players to choose between a manual trigger and lock-on firing mechanics.
Stay tuned. Arsenal Megacorp will no doubt let Stage 3 slip into the wild in the near future.

This could be true but it could be that they're just trying to cover it up with a story to save themselves from the embarrassment of changing the name back after so much criticism. Well, no one will know but them and they're sure not gonna tell us.

I still hope it's LiveFire or something, if possible, even better.

Doesnt seem like they are covering it up. LiveFire was Stage 1, KillTest Stage 2, now we wait for Stage 3 (probably going to be announced Wednesday for 3.0?)

only one game mode and only 4 people per game? Doesn't sound that appealing...

Don't think they can name it livefire since lucas arts which also makes mobile games has this game

I think Lucas served them with a legal notice and killtest was a stop gap while they think of a better name.

That's the one thing I don't like about the forum. Other than that, I love it. I usually don't need to delete posts though, but I still read over my post first just in case I don't want to publish anything I wouldn't want to be read.

Oh wow, you're right! Hmm, well, thanks to LucasArts for stealing a great name from a (hopefully) great game.

Killtest is a pretty bad name. I hope they can change it back to LiveFire. But an even better name would be great.

Its not just 4 players, its 4 players via 3G connections thus truly mobile online multiplayer! You won't need to find a wifi hotspot to play this game online (assuming you're an iPhone owner) and thats the coolest thing about it. To me, it seems like Quake 3: Arena (probably the 1st fps i ever played online) for a mobile phone!

Games I'm Playing: Jetpack Joyride, Infinity Blade 2, Batman, COD
Waiting For: Thunderbeam, Lostwinds, GTA3, Sonic CD
