Zoid Alternative scans

Zoid Alternative scans

I'm sure quite a few people around here remember the Zoids, that they quite popular in the 80s. It seems like they are still around in Japan since here comes another Zoids game for Xbox 360, this time it looks a lot like Chromehounds, and it's called Zoids Alternative.

Zoids was popular in America for a New York minute, around the time CN started airing the Anime a few years back. Where's Liger Zero? :P

I bet this won't ever hit state side though :/

I was like what? But then I remembered Zoids!

I still have some of those somewhere. Though the original transformers kicked their ass. (wishes he hadnt sold some of the more classic ones on a flea market).

We got a pretty good transformers game last-gen, lots of turtles games, zoid. Now where's He-Man!

This would be the 2nd 360 one, I believe. First one released in Japan some months back. Doubt they will ever release over to the west.

Forget He-Man, where's my FPS G I Joe? Or thundercats, and silver hawks, or Visionaries, or etc. :p

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. (4 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. (4 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. (5 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. (5 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. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 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 :) (6 Hours ago)
