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.

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.

About the game

    alimokrane @Melmoth: Exactly and that's my point :) I convinced myself to play it even though its first person - for a game to do that for me, it's BIG! (8 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @alimokrane: i used to read Edge reviews in the 90's and early 2000's because their opinions very often lined up with my own. Also, reading reviews is better than "reading" scores. (11 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @alimokrane: for me it's worked well to find a site, or even better, a reviewer you often seem to agree with or have the same taste in games, and you hare some reference point. (13 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Having played other recent horror games, they probably just decided/realized it was a superior camera for the genre. (13 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker happy as hell because boy.....was 6 a mess. Even the good parts really weren't that good at all. Still though I am slightly sad about no third person. (15 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I'm sure if Resi 7 had been exactly like 6 nobody would be happy. It seems Capcom now looked at modern horror games and also brought back some Resi stuff. If I was a fan of this franchise I would be (16 minutes ago)

    asdfg @Sdarts: Agree, nice atmosphere and graphics looks solid. So nice to see a RE that doesn't look like a shitty action B movie. (23 minutes ago)
