This is all true, I bought the game the day it came out. There were heaps of wrestlers on the workshop even the day it came out.


How is it running as I've read mixed things. On higher end PCs it's really good but on older ones laggy. Mainly the menu/CAW screens and in match the lag is minimal.

I built my PC this year, so I can't comment on older PCs, but it seems fine to me.


OK thanks. Guess I'll just have to try it!

It's ok.. a shitty card game is just the first thing included in the soon to be released red box, the other games will be:
Half life 3
Portal 3
Team fortress 3
Left 4 dead 3
Day of defeat 2
Seriously, Valve aren't even a developer any more, and even when they do a card game, they're only 3 years behind Blizzard.

Only way it could be worse if Blizzard made an FPS a decade after Val....
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Garry Newman’s new Sandbox game isn’t Garry’s Mod 2 but it could be

Earlier this week, Garry Newman, the developer behind Garry’s Mod and Rust, unveiled a new prototype being worked on at Facepunch Studios. It is called S&Box and the description sounds somewhat similar to what we saw with Garry’s Mod. This led to plenty of fans asking if this was in fact going to be a successor to Garry’s Mod and being the open chap he is, Newman was happy to explain the situation.

For those who missed the initial S&Box announcement, it is a project that aims to take a powerful game engine and build a “hot loading C# layer on top of it”. The system right now is running on Unreal Engine 4 but it can be lifted and applied to other engines, like the Source engine, where the project originated.

Speaking with PCGamer, Newman went into a bit more detail on the project and explained its connection to Garry’s Mod: “So this might be a bit complicated. There’s a lot of ‘is this Garry’s Mod 2?’, the honest answer is ‘maybe’ but nowhere near that yet. We’ve basically built our own game engine on top of UE4. We’re really using UE4 for its core features, rendering, networking, physics. It’s all done in an engine agnostic way. We can lift our system off and put it on the source engine”.

As Newman explains it is “too early to say whether this will turn into a spiritual successor” to Garry’s Mod, or even if S&Box will be released as a modable platform. Facepunch may decide to keep this as an internal tool to develop other games on.

KitGuru Says: I spent hundreds of hours in Garry’s Mod over the years. It is a very different game now compared to what it was back then but it is still very fun. However, a lot of GMod is based on assets from Valve’s Half-Life and Portal games and with no new Source 2-based games coming out of Valve, it might not make sense to release a second Garry’s Mod now, unless new assets are used.
