Agreed, the art style blows me away every time I see the game.

QFT. Seriously, it will come down to either Deadlight, or Dust: An Elysian Tail . . . especially with no new game from thatgamecompany hitting PSN this year. If Tequila Works delivers with Deadlight, and everything I have seen on the game suggest they will, then at the very least, Deadlight is going to be legendary (expect lots of copycats in the years to come). On the other hand, I got to play the original build of Dust: An Elysian Tail back in 08/09 while it was still on XNA Creators Club, it was already phenomenal then, just unpolished. A friend got to play the near final build of it at PAX East this year, and pretty much confirmed the that it was still phenomenal and much improved. Unless something unexpected comes along (likely another indie project on PC), one of the two of these games is currently shoe-in for digital game of the year.

I think you mean Trials: Evolution. Trials HD came out two years ago, and would not qualify as a 2012 Game of anything.

About the game


What's up?

    MrWhite Not "Here, you can have it all and become a god that can knock over a 30 tonne beast!" Had to be a balance there. There wasn't one. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite having a perk slot system too. Only being able to equip a couple to suit what kind of style you want to play as. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Little things that could have elevated the game from being just 'OK' to deserving the praise it got. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite another solution for repetitive combat and progression is a weapon maintenance system, sparser ammo, and making each machine have a unique invulnerability to certain attacks. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A simple solution would have been a command wheel function for overridden machines. Attack, defend, stay, suicide attack, follow etc (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the maps design didn't facilitate it. Like I say, poor design everywhere. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: I just think its sloppy AI coding, and just a general lack of want of doing it that way. One other reason is the on rails system for automatic riding (4 Hours ago)
