Romero talks about new CPL game; dude is so metal

What’s more disturbing? The way John Romero talks or the way he looks? Ready. Set. Debate! If you can actually sit through Mr. Romero pimping his new game called Severity, then enjoy his chatter about a FPS that is designed specifically for the Cyberathlete Professional League and probably other competitions. From Kotaku:

Severity is a multiplayer first person shooter (FPS) focusing on team-versus-team and one-versus-one play modes. Additionally, the game offers unprecedented support for gamers worldwide playing in online and live competitions both casually and professionally.

“Severity will be the first videogame conceived from the ground up to ensure the growth and appeal of multiplayer game competitions worldwide,” said Tom Mustaine, Director of Game Development at the CPL’s new studio.

Severity is built on technology created by developer id Software™ and includes enhanced tournament support, spectator modes, as well as detailed player and tournament statistics tracking. By leveraging the enthusiastic community and practical experiences of the CPL, Severity is uniquely positioned to set new standards while raising the bar for competitive multiplayer games.
