Omega Five explodes in images

Omega Five explodes in images

Hudson and Natsume were gentle enough to reveal a little bit more details about their shmup Omega Five with the help of images devoted to the heroin Ruby. I really appreciate the colors technique, divided among hot and cold to create a splendid union. The gameplay also seems to be a climax in this Xbox Live Arcade title.

Nice. XBLA needs more originals!

The graphics look fantastic, if somewhat hectic.

Impressive gfx for XBLA. Gameplay looks devoted more to Crystal meth than to heroin Ruby, nudge nudge. Characters are rather large compared to side-scrollers of yore. Modern game design stresses "recognizability" or "identifiability" so much, I reckon.

This has me reminded of Forgotten worlds, only with blinding graphics, and I like it.

Suddenly interested in games again.

About the game

    Sdarts @MikeManiac61: Ocarina of Time innovated on a lot of things when it came out, from both technical and gameplay departments. Today, if you exclude Nostalgia, it's great, but not the best Zelda game. (5 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Sdarts:thought the controls looked interesting. having 1:1 (or close to) sword control instead of something like the wii version of twilight princess where swinging the wiimote just triggered actions (5 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @Melmoth: Haven't played Skyward Sword to completion yet, but it's definitely a divisive game, people either love it or hate it. (8 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @Sdarts: not often nowadays, sadly. For the other zelda games, i've got a MotionPlus controller, so i can play Skyward Sword. (11 minutes ago)

    MikeManiac61 @MrWhite: Haven't played MM but I've seen gameplay footage and reviews and it looks more fascinating than OOT (15 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Melmoth: That's really nice, man. In a way, it's almost like you two played games together. I hope the family life hasn't stopped that, even if it's once or twice a year. (16 minutes ago)
