Welcome to Brownville, where only drab colours exist to make you nauseous. But wait, we have great graphics to go along with our boring aesthetics, that should be enough right?!

These developers need to watch this: Graphics vs Aesthetics

Now that's a very interesting link, thanks for posting!

And on the game, I think it looks a little bit to much like all the other games set in space that came out during this generation but at least you're not playing a generic marine this time so it has some originality stylewise. The gameplay looks interesting because it's not just flying around but also 2nd person shooting this time.

the footage of this game looks wicked. transforming mech planes FTW.

looks nice too for a sequel to what was a pretty ugly looking game.

Pretty much!

Not only that, but they definitely overhauled the way the gameplay is like for your character, weapons...etc. looks like a modern designed shooter.
Character doesnt hop around when running, aiming is added, crosshair is like any other shooter, movement is like Red Faction, Gears...etc.

I love what they have done with it, and thank god they chose sci fi approach, those transforming mechs are awesome.

Unlike Warhawk, I will definitely know I will love this.
I just hope they add alot of unlockable bonuses other than outfits, head designs, colors...etc. I want new weapon models...etc.

This RTS thing that they said reminds me of Section 8.
Kill, get points, use the points to help your team out with spawning in turrets, shields, AA...etc. sounds interesting.

I hope it is released this year with a open beta.

Artstyle is much better, more serious, darktoned.
And I am surprised the single player is added this time around, and its a black dude, cool lol.
I wonder what is going on with his body though from the render, give him cool abilities!

One thing I forgot, I pray that Lightbox hires the same composer from Warhawk for Starhawk.

Composer is Christopher Lennertz

Imagine these type of tracks for the game so epic!
I can see Darth Vader ordering a huge army to invade on a planet.

Game looks like a lot of fun! Looking forward to seeing more :D

I like it. Sue me. They seem to have some decent contrast in color even though there's not a lot to see in these pics.

Ironically the movie that quote references features a character weilding a purple space bazooka.

Looks pretty cool, especially like the sound of space battles...on my radar
Commented on 2011-05-13 17:01:38
Looks very nice, I like the idea of a tower defense type of mechanic blended with a shooter and the SF setting is much more interesting than the previous titles drab look.

Also, it has an actual singleplayer this time...

Nice video. I hope they deliver it

Meh to space zombies. Hopefully they don't impact the multiplayer too much.

They are gonna have to playtest the HELL out of the building element though, things like that tend to have a lot of exploits.
Commented on 2011-05-13 17:47:28
I think those mutans (not zombies) are gonna be the other race in MP faction.
One team is humans the other team is mutans, Warhawk had a similair style.

As long as we can have deep character customization from face, facial hair, outfits, colors, all seperate I am good.
Warhawk let us customize headsets/gear with different faces, torso, pants, and colors and emblems on the clothes and such.

I've been waiting YEARS for this moment! Dreams come true! A f***ing Warhawk sequel! DAYMN!! Yes! Gimme dogfight gameplay vids! Hahaha!

Composer is back!

Thank you Lightbox, I hope he does an amazing gran orchestra once again as Warhawk

From what I hear from the trailer, it has orchestra with sometimes a western touch, kind of like Firefly!
The more I see and hear the more hype I get, looks great.

The Question that needs to be asked is, does it have the one thing that made its predecessor as awesome as it is?

Which would be super-outbalanced, super fast paced splitscreen online multiplayer on dedicated servers with the possibility to host a dedicated server of your very own with a PS3, and an overall have-it-your-way attitude with lots of modes and map layouts. Build & Battle looks frikin sweet, I predict that it will be the one thing that other 3PS developers will try to extract and tack on their games so it'll be at least half as awesome as Starhawk, but without all the sweet multiplayer madness from Warhawk, I don't want it.

Also, I won't be touching that campaign before reaching at least Brigade General equivalent ranking in multiplayer. No Warhawk fan will buy this for the singleplayer, which means it has to be truly exciting for us to care.

P.S. Give us shotguns. The one weapon that Warhawk lacks is a shotgun!

I love the name. Sounds like a mix of Starcraft and Warhawk. Which I understand it is. GTTV mentioned starcraft players doing "Jeep rushes" instead of "Zerg rushes".

Invisible Walls podcast blasted the game based on their impressions, expect wave-based combat and escort missions! Campaign will be as bad as BRINK.

Game is about MP anyways.
They planned on adding SP in Warhawk but decided to have MP only, atleast now they have a SP for the sake of it.

I will be playing SP for the sake of it but then its MP only.

as long as the AI isn't as utterly retarded as brink, then it will NEVER be as bad as that campaign.

it's a muliplayer game anyway, just like brink was and should always have been. as long as the game is technically and mechanically sound (brink isnt) then it'll make for a good MP game.

It was popular PSN game back then. So they can only make it better.
Commented on 2011-05-14 17:46:35
the game's art is rather bad...probably worse than Warhawk's generic design

but still I liked Warhawk, it's a nice pick up and play shooter. I wish this were a PSN only title, I don't want to get up and change discs everytime I want to play the multiplayer
