The cylindrical levels remind me a lot of Resogun.

Not the GW I remember. Hopefully they'll have a classic mode. Oh wait, they do.

Love Geometry Wars, can't wait.

Granted i've only looked at the screenshots, but i can't help but feel like maybe this is missing the point of the original game? I always equated Geometry Wars with difficult gameplay that is easy in execution. Just shoot shit before it kills you, nothing more or less. That's why i liked it. The 3d-aspect feels like it might fuck that up somewhat. Hopefully i'm wrong, i really liked Gemoetry Wars.

Oh my goodness, this game can't come soon enough.

I agree.

What does classic mode entail? I want a straight up port of GW2. We already have the original on multiple platforms.

I was one of the few who prefered the original over GW2. From what i remember classic mode was on sequel, but with different scoring system, multiplier pick-up things and the new enemies/figures introduced in GW2.

It's the closest thing to GW2 as we'll get in GW3. Faux 3D with rectangular grid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny0qLeKq2R4

That grid is obnoxious looking, and takes up way too much of the screen, as pointless as it is. That didn't really ease my fears. I guess it's worth noting that the creator of GeoWars isn't involved in this game :D

It looks like your average twin stick shooter. They're cashing in on that brand name.

    MrWhite Last of Us was a very good game, mind. The best they've done, but I certainly wouldn't put it on a pedestal the way its regarded. (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I just don't think they've done anything that's pushed the envelope or been particularly bold, other than focus on details. (3 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: It was a very different ND back then too which is why the company name seems weird today (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Then again, its a difference of months rather than years between those and PSX (6 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 I don't remember very well but i think my biggest problem with Crash gameplay was the depth perception was weird (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I wouldn't go as far as saying it was one of the earliest ones. When I think early 3d, I think 3D0, 32X and Jaguar. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: That's the crux of it. Tomb Raider is a good example of that. Then again, it lent a bit to its charm at the same time with how difficult and tense it made traversing things. (9 minutes ago)
