now this is what i call a trailer

Yes, there is choppiness in the mech locations in the video, it's because it was captured in slow motion with a spectator camera from demos recorded from network games. Actual network play looks fine.

very promising for a game only 9 (!) months in development by a team of less than 10 guys (!!)...personally this is a "shut up and take my money" game at this point.

mechs are kinda Patlabor-ish, which I like, though I also feel like they are a bit too generic-looking. But it's an early build so who knows. Gameplay looks like it could be fun. It's going to be an FPS though, we'll see how well they pull that off.

right now it seems to be multiplayer only. someone fund this so that we can get a game good enough to inject life into the genre...

A New Challenger Comes

JK... Hey there, I'm Melly. I'm usually am pretty averse to making intro posts (never did at GW, lol), but RMN seems like a nice place, and I love the many game design articles/discussions here, so I'd like to hang around. :)

I'm a college Economics/Japanese double major in California, and I've been farting around off-and-on in various RPG Makers since roughly 5th grade. Never completed a game, but hopefully I will complete my current project, Oathguard, someday.

I like games that first and foremost make me "feel" something--via either gameplay (feeling "strong" or "accomplished"), atmosphere, or story/dialog (I'm a sucker for awesome localization/dialog/characterization/etc). For me, games are art because you can communicate human feelings through them (cheesey, I know...).

Some of my fave RM games of recent times that I can think of offhand are Sunset Over Imdahl, The Mirror Lied, Resident Evil 2d, Grave Spirit, Starless Umbra, Hero's Realm, Balmung Chronicle, Wifred the Hero, and Destiny's Call Complete (just for the nostalgia! :P). Oh, and of course Don Miguel's Niggaz vs. Satan... truly an epic. (I'm serious, it's awesome.)

Anyway, I like console games, too, of course, and admittedly am a "Sony person," though I really want a 360 right now. I like all genres, but my fave games/biggest influences are ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, Lunar series, FFX, FFIX, Shadow Hearts series, Resident Evil series, Virtua Fighter series, Wolfenstein, Dynasty Warriors/ROTK series, Earthbound, Phantasy Star IV, Sword of the Berserk ... too many to name. :) I'm currently playing and loving GTA IV, Virtua Fighter 5, Orange Box, and Yakuza 2. Besides games, I like sports (judo, bball, football), writing, languages and localization, food, and chillaxing w/friends.

Sorry about listing things at you. I hope to contribute to the community, instead of lurking like I always do. Anyway, nice to meet everyone.
