Unreal Tournament 3 plot teaser ... Unreal Tournament 3 has a plot?

Recently we've had a string of strikingly original FPS games. BioShock introduced a whole generation of gamers to Objectivist theory, and Portal taught even the most jaded of us that finding true love is a close as the nearest inanimate cube. That above clip demonstrating the single player storyline for the soon-to-be-salivated-over Unreal Tournament 3 however, seems to push us right back towards the rote run n' gun n' look surly approach FPS developers have been masturbating over since John Carmack first decided he had something against demons.

The clip itself looks gorgeous -- that's undeniable -- but I swear that plot is an amalgam of Gears of War and John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars. I wish I had something nicer to say, but when your plot resembles a film that can be best summed up as Ice Cube vs Marilyn Manson: Mark of the Millennium 2176, you might want to spice it up with a Faustian subplot, or some incest undertones. I'm hoping gaming won't immediately back slide to the lowbrow after Valve and 2K showed us a better way, but I also had high hopes for the Yankees this year.

Ooooooh! Topical!
