Maybe it's just me but does it seem like characters with helmet masks are becoming more popular after the success of Dead Space?

This game was revealed before Dead Space.

Also, any eighties/early ninties movie fans might recognise The Rocketeer.

Which was of course based on the post WW2 pulp movies like King Of The Rocket Men

those god rays look stunning, not too sure about the game though.

The game will be alright. Matter of fact, it'll be kickass, even. The devs at Airtight, have a long history of making AAA titles. Just because they are working at a new company (Capcom), under a new name, is not going to change that. They will deliver yet another AAA game experience like they always have.

To me it looks like a B-game. The graphics are uninspired and have little detail. The sense of speed is lacking. Those controls don't look too good, but that could be the player's inability. And most of all: it looks boring.

Gotta wonder how the main character keeps from burning his legs off with that rocket pack...

Ummm... It could be interesting.

can't possibly be any worse then bionic commando or lost planet 2. it's the only game from capcom i find even remotely interesting.

looks great..i hope its not full of the standard "destroy turret" flying gameplay.. i hope those alien in robotic suit things also have jet packs and theres some good "dog fights" ahead.

And yeah, the practical part of me instantly thought "how the hell is he not burning his arms and legs off with that pack?"

I agree with Korndog, can't be worse than Bionic Commando or Lost Planet 2. God damn those demos sucked ass. Played through Bionic Commando and regreted wasting those few hours of my life.

This looks like it has promise, I'm hoping for a Dead Space/Killzone2 type of quality here. Not a ground breaking game or anything, but just a well polished game that borrows the right ideas from the right games.

it's a shame that it wont have multiplayer coming from the guys the developed one of my favorite online xbox games crimson skies.

The mix of the Crimson Skies development team, Capcom's rich knowledge of arcade shooters, great visuals, and the B movie Rocket Man stylings make this look very interesting indeed.

Too bad it's been pushed to next year.

Also, this game seems unusually gray. No deep blacks at all, just shades of light and dark gray. Seeems quite odd to me how a lot of games this gen either don't or can't use deep blacks.

What's up?
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (5 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (6 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Beat Gears 4 last night. TLDR review: Interesting story that they fail to give a satisfying ending (or any ending at all to). Hit and miss graphics, mostly hit. Weak beginning, and super weak end. (8 minutes ago)

    droezelke @KORNdog: It depends on how they define succes. If it's viewers, then it's a succes. If it's no increase in subscriptions, then it's not. (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus preordered snes mini. just waiting for the order not to be honored. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: not in regards to costs. If it was a success, they wouldn't have cancelled it now would they. Lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: Not true about Sense8. Sense8 was actually a succes, confirmed by the Vice Pres of Netflix. Just looked that up to be sure :-) (2 Hours ago)
