Video of the Zegapain XOR demo

Video of the Zegapain XOR demo

Zegapain XOR was announced a few months ago the game adaptation of the Zegapain anime on Xbox 360. The demo is now available on the japanese Marketplace, and of course I HAD to do a video. After a few minutes playing the demo, I don't really regret not preordering that game. It's not terrible, but it's certainly not great either. Just your average anime adaptation.
Update: The 720p version is online.

I agree with him you. I dont understand jap, but it makes the game alot better with its original language, but the text would be nice if it was in english though. This and Lost Planet are the best demos ouot yet, atleast for me.

I quite enjoyed the demo. Not exactly mind blowing but I had a lot of fun zooming about cutting dudes up. Plays pretty well for a demo, dunno how a full version might hold up though.

just downloaded it with my japanese account, but when i try 2 launch it, it says something like: wrong area code (dont remember, but something like that)....
( I have a European 360 )

Anyways, dunno about the game, looks nice but not something i'm gonna buy

I just played it and as a person that has imported most of the Gundam games for the PS2 over the past 4 years, I can safely say this game is a lot better then most of them.

The colors are amazing.

Form looking at the trailler I have mixed feelings about it.

Whoa the gameplay looks awesome... I think people in Japan would really like this game, but who knows. I'm most likely going to purchase this one.
Commented on 2006-07-13 23:25:31
noice! Looks pretty slick for this sort of game.
Commented on 2006-07-13 23:33:10
Wow... I think i'm going to cave and just purchase this one. The gameplay looks really fun and thats all I really want I know it can get repetitive, but it looks cool to be honest. If they mix up the enemies and your available abilities (I hope you have more than just that slashing melee and maybe a couple guns.)

To be honest not many games have even managed to nail just the flying aspect much less all the nice effects and that melee. :) This game is loads better than a lot of games out there that try to accomplish something similar. Not comparing it to zoe.

This must be a pretty popular game. i've been downloading it for about half an hour and it's only at 4%.

Anyways, it looks fun from the video, I'm just hoping for some more varying types of enemies or at least some enemies that don't just run away from you like in this vid.

Thanks Sath! Now time to make a Jap account and try this baby out! Oh, and the demo was pretty tight.
Commented on 2006-07-14 01:15:15

The demo runs on a north american X360, and its pretty damn fun.... first attempt i failed the mission (time up i guess) second time i got an S rank in 6mins. Its really fun, if i ever see it going for cheap online, and its region free, i might grab the game.
Commented on 2006-07-14 02:13:45
Seriously scazza this game is EXTREMELY fun and ultimately thats what its all about. The game has to be fun and it certainly is.
Commented on 2006-07-14 02:31:23
Reminds me of the style of Virtua Ontario Tangram
Also if this game had online mp, whos knows how good it'd be

played through the demo a couple of times and I must say i'm pretty disappointed. The game is entertaining but nothing amazing. For anyone who actually did love this game go pick up Zone of the Enders: the 2nd Runner for PS2 if you can find it. Zegapain is a cheap imitation of the ZOE franchise. You'll fall in love with that game if you liked Zegapain.

By the way, for those who arnt in to Robotech style games like this (i think thats the term, i mnot a fan), this game is mostly about sword fighting and lock-on missiles. Punch R to zoom in and hit B to sword bash away, and use X to sheild if they attack back. Also using left and right analog to select Armour then using Y (activates current skill) will get u a nice sheild).

It seems a little odd the game, and the controls are very offputting. But just try and beat the level, it can be a blast for some ppl. Plus its 250megs or so, so its a tiny download.

About the game

What's up?
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (5 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (5 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (5 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (8 Hours ago)
