Don't hold your weapons with Vanquish

Don't hold your weapons with Vanquish

Sega released a new video of Vanquish focusing on the weapons that will be available in the game. This new title will ship on October 19 in North America and October 22 in Europe and we might be able to add the game to our Gamersyde review list, if everything goes according to plans that is.

I saw it at the Rage Expo in South Africa, saw a scene with a frenetic big scale battle, bullets flying everywhere, high action arcade vibe. Looked like heaps of fun

This could've been so much more.

Sorry Mikami I'll pass this.

Shadow of the Damned will be a first day-buy though.

Could be what? the new DmC? And SoTD is not a Mikami game.

LOL

Mikami could make a game in hsi dreams better than 90% of devs out there not to mention Kamiya!!

This will be the best 3rd person shotters in maybe 20 years or so or ever!!

cant wait!!

I remember Brandon Flowers from the KILLERS saying their "Sam's Town" album would be the best album for the next 20 years. Maybe IRAPET0IR has been drinking his Kool-Aid ;)

He didn't say that SoTD was a Mikami's game.

But I slightly agree. They obviously held back. It looks like the game takes place in one room and the hero's armor is so overdetailed that it looks as if it was made of shattered rock.
Gameplay itself is very solid, though.

haha are you serious?
false.
Commented on 2010-10-06 20:11:03
SoTD has anything to do with this game only that Mikami is involved in some aspect,why mention it then?

And no they didnt held back anything,what do you expect from a space station? caves? jungles and swamps? mountains?

Completly disagree with both of you here.

i'd name a bunch, but no need do. don't get me wrong, it's fun. vanquish plays well-fast paced, arcade style shooting action with pretty solid mechanics-but it could (like most games) use some polish; i.e. voice acting. it's a fun "pick up and play", but i wouldn't go as far as saying best in the past 20 years. i mean look at the detail of the metal gear solid series.

meh, but to each his own.

Good album, but not the best in 20 years. I guess the same applies for this.

Gameplay wise?

You cant move and shoot for God's sakes!! how can that be better gameplay wise?

As a whole package maybe,but in terms of what you can do IN gameplay its not even close!

Not just a space station, maybe? Once the game's out and you play it then let me know for how long you'll be able to play it till you get bored from doing the same thing over and over. No matter how awesome a thing is you'll get bored quickly without a variety. That's just a simple rule.
I still hope, though, that there is some change in the progress of the game that we don't know about and/or the game ends very quickly.

You may want to wait a good 6 months then because thats when I could become a little bored with it ro maybe a a year since I still cant get enough of Bayonetta and I expect to this game be no different.

You should expect something different this time because the main hero doesn't have Bayonetta's ass. See for how long you'll be able to stare at his crushed-rock armor.
Commented on 2010-10-06 22:16:34
good points here. ill buy this because i like fast paced games and because mikami made it. i still hope mikamis next game is a survival horror game that will kick DEAD SPACE 2 in the ass. I think GEARS 3 will be better than this.

Unless they put some jet packs in Marcus and Dom backs I can't see it happening.

Oh yeah? How much of it can you see, actually?

And how did you like jetpacks in Halo Reach?

DmC is a better game, so is Bayonetta.

My opinion ofcourse ;)

Again this could've been so much more.

Too much grey

Suit is not appealing

Overheating-stuff? not cool :P

Sam? not my type of character

Story is seems to me like a boring one.

Anyway better luck next time.

Better luck next time to what exactly?

Just because you find it that way it doesn't make the game automatically bad, don't give yourself to much credit, also why you say DmC is better that this? we haven't seen gameplay not anything about that game only a lame reboot of a character.

You know what forget it, we have a very different way of view games that its not worth it to argue about this.

Not cool probably for people that suck at this game? You have energy bar for suit, so play right b4 call this as negative. It's possible to keep the suit from overheating almost all the time.

Too much shit in one post btw. Bravo.

Opinions...get used to them.


I played the demo many times. I think I'm very good at it.

Still doesnt change my view on the game.

I can say this...gameplaywise, Vanquish has the best "style" to 3rd person shooters.

I do agree and disagree with Grayfox on this matter of energy depletetion.

Yes, you can play it in a way so you dont run out of energy fully, but then why bother having melee attacks when it drains the entire energy dry by killing one enemy.
That is what pisses me off the point.
The melee's are so damn good that if you are close and you pull it off there is no way of making it out unless you chance it.
I died many times pulling this and it was downright annoying!

Now I do agree that the game pretty much look the same with the same art in terms of locations, too many white and greys, with minimum colors from the enemies and visual effects.
And one green level which has grass :P
But who knows, maybe more level variations will be there in the full game, you know, they might not want to spoil us.

But thing is, the game is VERY arcedy, fast, stylish in a John Woo type of way, some like it some dont.
Story isnt good at all, but who cares?

The entire idea of this game is how they made the character act like what you see in cutscenes usually in an actual gameplay, not the first we have seen it (Max Payne, Stranglehold), but this is overkill from those titles.

I was looking forward to it, but after playing the demo many times and the Challenge demo (something I wanted interms of replayvalue) I know this game isnt something for me, and considering I can't rent games, I will plain simple say no.
I lost interest in it, didnt have much to begin with, but its all good.

PS. RE4 better than Vanquish in gameplay? Hell no!
Any game were I have to stop every few seconds to aim, shoot, reload...etc. is BAD, thank god Visceral Games saw that and didnt pull that shit off with Dead Space (other than aim/reload).

Saying this as a friend...nobody has seen one single footage of proper gameplay footage of DmC, I have no idea how you know they will pull if off.

I know its a re-boot and I dont mind it at all (I love Lords of Shadow so trust me), but when games like DMC1 and DMC3 has such combat mechanics, giving it to Ninja theory that isnt even crossed the line of perfect from Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, it definitely gets me worried.

Not even I had the balls to say Lords of Shadow would be a better game than anything that is released or being released before it and there was no gameplay videos whatsoever.
IMO you should just wait and see how it turns out before saying such things because such claims are very bold to say you know :)
Though keep the hype going though, I know it did ME good ;)

Don't take it personal.

Hope it sells though ;)

Platinum games deserves the money.
