The old style is way more charming. Don't like the new style much at all to be honest, retro or gtfo :)

Indeed, Good ol' 16 bits for the win!

The old style is outdated... looks like a cheesy b-quality pirate movie.
Who really cares, 99% of the time you would be seing a pixelated blob of characters.

Love the look of the new one myself.

Can't wait for the new episodic stuff at the end of the month also. http://www.worldofmi.com/

Edit:- oh looks like the first episode is out today :D

I like the old one more too. I won't be buying this as I already own the game.

I am quite interested about that episodic game. I hope it is good.

Chick looks like she's got a baseball cap on. Gross.

Will still probably check this out though.

At least you can play with the original graphics too! I hope they also release the second game. That game is greatness.

I don't see why people would want to look at that mess now TBH.

game looks better now, with the more familiar looking threepwood imo, but they havnt adressed how it moves at all, it's rediculously jerky in it's movements. they needed to go all out and make the movement far more fluid, not just put a coat of paint on old pixels...same thing happened with street fighter 2 HD...it looked weird as hell.

The new version looks terrific but it's nice that the game will come with both the new and the original versions. Can't wait to play it again after all this time.

i cant decide both versions look good, hope this comes to wiiware, point n click makes more sense there.

They managed to recapture the old game very well.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (4 Hours ago)
