What a blurry mess.

looks like they took inspiration from vanquish as far as blurry screenshots go.

these games always look quite cool, but they end up playing like complete shit. i just want a new ZOE, it's the only mech game i've enjoyed and that's partly down to the fact it doesnt play much like a mech game.

I've never played a Mech game that I could enjoy for more than an hour or two. Like was already said, they always look fun but never end up playing that way. I'd love to be surprised though as the idea of a mech game sounds so fun, it's just not easy to make fighting in giant robots fun I guess... who woulda' thought...

Armored Core was alway like how Brink is to me now. You like the character stuff, cutomerization and all that, the the actual gameplay was forgetable.
Just my 2 cents.

Indeed, ZOE 3 should be a demand, but the problem with demands, it's that they tend to be awful. But man, a ZOE would be really fantastic.

You should play ZOE, it's a fantastic and fun game, specially for a mech game.

played Zone OE already, not a fan.

I always really wanted to like Armored Core but they never live up to the superb mech designs or especially the always amazing pre rendered intros...

Have to chime in on ZOE, the second runner was one of the best games last gen, a sequel is long overdue.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (19 Hours ago)
