TGS06: Trailer of A-Train HX

TGS06: Trailer of A-Train HX

The ones that was fast enough and able to see the video mix trailer from the MS Conference, saw one game that stood out, one game to rule them all: A-Train HX. The ones that loved Microsoft Train Simulator can hope for region-free coding on this one, cause it will of course not be released here. TGS06 trailer and images inside.

I used to play A-Train on Amiga a hundred years ago.

Oh, but we already have a convini simulator, and the preteen game that attracted the most crowds of dirty old men at the show comes out soon as well.(Idolmaster)

As for this game, I think ill pass on it. I didnt exactly feel compelled to buy the convini sim and I didnt like aerobiz back in the old times either. It may not look great, but it doesnt have to. Hopefully it is region free as someone mentioned.

ahaha oh man, these japanese devs make me cry with laughter, other than namco and sega, i can't think of many jap devs whos games ive enjoyed for along time, they produce mindless clone rpgs, which i can't stand, give up on japan already, they are only the 3rd biggest market anyway behind america and europe

Konami and Capcom?

They are not using textures yet, are they? Just flat colors... Someone should have told them that High Definition is not just bout resolution...
Commented on 2006-09-24 15:47:09
One of the images says its high definition... is it really? these, not to offend anyone whos a train simulator, images are very poor, *sigh* some japanese developers arent even trying anymore are they?

Some maybe, but the new lost planet vid shows off some of the best looking graphics to date on any system.(Referring to the gameplay shots too, not CGI) So its not all that are ignoring graphics.

Hey train sims are big among...train fans? And uhh, no, Namco does not suck. Ridge Racer does not suck--and even though I'm not a particularly big fan of the series, saying that Tekken sucks is quite a stretch too. Namco owns. Soul Calibur owns, Ridge Racer owns..and we're getting Trusty Bell--which looks awesome.

I think you people are over reacting just a tad--this isn't a high budget game and I doubt anyone (even its developers) expect it to be a "killer app"
Commented on 2006-09-24 20:47:28
This will be the killer apt title that will sell the Xbox360 to millions and earn Microsoft some respect.....Not even if this game was free.
Commented on 2006-09-24 23:21:59
good to see an amiga emulator coming to the xbox360! oh, wait...
Commented on 2006-09-25 01:21:41
I want to play this even though it looks like a Nintendo DS game, hehe.
Commented on 2006-09-25 01:37:59
The train sims on the PSP look better than this.
Commented on 2006-09-25 02:55:39
i know MS wants to succed in Japan,but they dont have to desperatly allow any ps1 looking game on the 360.

its not like microsoft say, "Oh your game looks stupid so we can't release it." There are people out there excited for this game, and any game released on the 360 is good for it... graphics are not what is important in some games bro. Quit your bitchin people, you don't have to buy this game. BTW... Japanese developers kick ass, but are hard for americans (and anyone else) to get into. It's such a different culture and mindset over there. Thats why america puts out GTA and japan puts out dating sim games haha
