LOVE the art style, not impressed by what they have shown gameplay wise so far, especially when all they talk about is graphics / ant base / and what they ripped from my favorite game to give there game some sort atmosphere

and taken away multiple bases was LAME, shows how much shallower this game will be in terms of gameplay, losing a base in original, put that more pressure on you and , it was great to instead of being game over you had multiple bases to fall back on giving that more open ended gameplay, what i feel this game is going to lack

Absolutely enthralled by this game. Never played the old games but I wish I did back in the day because I could totally see the old installments being in my favorite games of all time. I mean a turn based alien invasion... it doesn't get better than that.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (15 Hours ago)
