Descent Forever?

Posted on September 24, 2008

Interplay has a brand new website up with dedicated pages to some of their previous games, including Descent!  Not really sure where this image above comes from, but I assume it's new.  Too bad they didn't get those Pyro-GX's quite right, but it's still cool to see something fresh from the world of Descent.

Their website only has the image below, but it seems Interplay is about to rise from the ashes.  Here's hoping they get their act together soon enough to make a totally kick-ass, next-gen uh, current-gen version of Descent!

Descent 3 Tournament in Las Vegas

Posted on August 28, 1999

As part of the release for Descent 3 Interplay sponsored a $50,000 multiplayer tournament in Las Vegas.  Mark, Jerry, Chris P., Damien and I were in attendance to see the winner crowned while also jumping in to play a few matches ourselves.  Great time with the guys and what a fun way to promote the game!

I bet this sounded better in the marketing meeting

Excited to release my first PlayStation game: Descent: Maximum.  Built on top of the recently released Descent II for PC, we've made an all-new experience exclusively for PlayStation with new levels, visual effects, updated controls to take advantage of the PlayStation controller, and more!
