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?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not "Here, you can have it all and become a god that can knock over a 30 tonne beast!" Had to be a balance there. There wasn't one. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite having a perk slot system too. Only being able to equip a couple to suit what kind of style you want to play as. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Little things that could have elevated the game from being just 'OK' to deserving the praise it got. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite another solution for repetitive combat and progression is a weapon maintenance system, sparser ammo, and making each machine have a unique invulnerability to certain attacks. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A simple solution would have been a command wheel function for overridden machines. Attack, defend, stay, suicide attack, follow etc (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the maps design didn't facilitate it. Like I say, poor design everywhere. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: I just think its sloppy AI coding, and just a general lack of want of doing it that way. One other reason is the on rails system for automatic riding (4 Hours ago)
