8WayMovement.com says: Epic's highly anticipated, side-scrolling shooter is finally upon us. Our video review gives you the full low-down.
it's from epic, it has to be good
their excellent pedigree continues
When you have Epic and Chair entertainment behind this game, there is absolutely no reason display any doubt. The recent XBLA releases like Trials HD,Splosion Man,Battlefield 1943 etc have all been excellent and we still have Quake Arena,Doom 2,Perfect dark HD,Serious Sam HD and Alien Breed to experience before this year is up.09 has really seen XBLA really shine.
you're right, xbla is really growing into a place to find some really great titles. perhaps even some of the best titles of this generation.
when is it hitting xbla? JOY
perfect dark HD should be a blast, what's alien breed? never heard of it...
@jokesonyou - it's coming out wednesday
It's a remake of a 1991 Amiga classic and will be hitting XBLA this fall and PSN mid 2010.
Nice, I love the whole 2D/3D unique gameplay. I'm going to be getting this one. 'Splosion man is really fun also.
@1.7 that video looks pretty interesting, i'd not seen any of it before
Epic usually delivers the type of stuff I'm interested in...
Bubble Bobble NEO!
thanks, I just saw that on another thread too, for some reason I had heard Thursday but now I know its Wednesday for sure. I'm not sure why you have disagree's, I guess theres some sort of "disagree glitch" on this thread. JOY
But I dont give a fvck about this game. I dont know why, it just looks stupid. And I know what a lot of you are going to say: Arthur, if you dont like it, then dont bother reading about it. I know i know. I should keep it to myself and not be a negative nancy, but this game looks dumb as hell.
not coming to ps3? shame...
and they say ps3 fanboys are always here to start an argument...
Buy both freaking systems and quit complaining! This looks like a really cool game and has the reviews to back it up so far. Im gonna get this and trials HD. Xbox live arcade is making some games that really interest me lately. but why must you diss the ps3 as if it hasnt delivered anything good through psn.
your loss not mine. Fact, You are "not" getting the best next gen experience out their.
Tony, it's fine if you prefer PS3, but you need to learn the difference between fact and opinion my friend. Some of us prefer the 360's lineup and experience over the PS3's.
"Buy both freaking systems and quit complaining! This looks like a really cool game and has the reviews to back it up so far. Im gonna get this and trials HD. Xbox live arcade is making some games that really interest me lately. but why must you diss the ps3 as if it hasnt delivered anything good through psn." This is a mature comment and should not be made in this area but more so in the gamerzone as you can see, you will be ganged up on with absolute fanboy rants in here. Thus making yourself stood down to their level with "your loss not mine. Fact, You are "not" getting the best next gen experience out their." comments unless you were referring to still owning both consoles. The ONLY way to enjoy the best next gen experience is to own BOTH a 360 and PS3 since there are some great exclusives that any real GAMER should play and experiencing the true next gen experience.
Sweeeeeeet. Love me them old school 2d games. This reminds me of a suped up version of Contra.
contra is amazing, especially contra 3
Remember that Spread gun in Contra?It was so amazing, used to talk about the game all day with my mates as a kid.
the metal slug series is probably my fav 2d shooters
@green: yeah, contra had some really awesome weapons. i just loved the environment and background scenery, so awesome for the time.
To 2.3 Yea, Metal Slug is the ultimate bro game! My cousin and me played and beat each Metal Slug (beside the DS one) together, amazing series. Hope SNK does something with the series beside re-releasing all the old ones, some new sprites would be great or just a new game period.
a new metal slug would be freakin amazing. snk have done a new king of fighters, maybe metal slug is next? we can only hope...
metal slug ftw. shadow complex looks pretty awesome BTW
Oh yeah the Metal Slug series is one of my favs. Very tough game.
Day One !
Can't wait till Wednesday.
This Wed, some of the 2100 MS points I've been hording since February get spent.
points well horded
I have an additional 300 points since buying The Maw which was the last XBLA game I bought this year. I'm planning on this and Serious Sam HD FE whenever that's out, but Trials HD, Quake III and Doom 2 are going to force me to buy more and for that, I need a bigger HDD, because 20GB isn't cutting it anymore.
i've got 20gb too. is sux having to micromanage everything, deleting demos as soon as i've played them etc.
At least epic created something new. I hope Bungie and lionhead would make something new beside halo and fable.
bungie are working on something but they can't talk about it until (i think) halo reach has been announced.
lionhead are always making new games
Good! And I mean this in no offensive way at all, I promise, but XBLA needs more quality arcade titles like this :D Awesome!
agreed. battlefield 1943 and this should satisfy my hunger for a little while though
but this is one title but makes me want one. Good job Epic. To the hater who's disagreeing. Get a life.
treat yourself to a 360, you deserve it
I'm getting an Elite when they hit 299$. :S
Keep in mind XBLA don't have no good games. /sacasm This month alone I spend way to much on XBLA.
you have to renew your 12 month membership?
What you can't spend 49.99+Tax a year? ugh stop buying cookies and ice cream
u don't have to have a gold membership to purchase games or video content on XBL.
biased these reviewers clearly iz. If this game waz on the PS3 it would gotten a 2.
Perfect Dark HD will blow us away!
with tears....in my....Eyes.....
That was a sexually awkward moment for me.
WHERE ARE THE PS3 FA9S?
That's what I said to your mom after she finished licking my balls. She grabbed my Wiiner and she did it with a Big Smile. Get @ me
you do realize your saying "yo momma" jokes over the internet right? i love 360 fanboys = comedy
I've had multiple PS3 fanboys lay "your mom" jokes on me on this website don't act like your side of the fence isn't a complete joke either.
That's the point.
always in the PS3rd ZONE here trying to belittle a game that they will never play. Has anyone noticed taht most 360 people dont give a rats ass about PS3, but the PS3rds are soooo butthurt over anything xbox. what a sad group. Even the PS3 fanboys talk about xbox more than ps3. VVV---LOL look at that PS3rd mezzo. For such a sony nut hugger youd think hed know something about MGS.
I bought MS points just for this, in anticipation of what looked like greatness. Looks like I made a good choice. And I will get Serious Sam HD when it comes out...which will make the THIRD time I've bought the game (PC, Xbox, XBLA). GREAT time for XBLA games. Money well spent.
I had MS points ready for about 2 weeks now. I'm ready.
Great score. Sounds like these guys get it and aren't reviewing it like it's some $60 retail game.
oh god the wait is killing me! im staying up late for the release of this
Play time is over. When will you children come back over from the dark side?
LMFAO...The OPEN ZONE is like the Comedy Zone. Natsu, you DA MAN..Tell those PS3 scumbags that you mean business..LMFAO
What, another MetalGearSolid rip off. can't you come up with something original.
WTF MGS had to do with a regular kind of guy climbing a mountain with his girlfriend? or side scrolling action game? or his girlfriend being kidnapped? seriously WTF?
You really are a joke account, Mezzo.
Hmmm this game has never really interested me and i probably won't be buying it when I get my 360 for christmas but for some reason i think that if this game was on the PS3 it would be shat on?
Definitely going to buy this, looks incredible like Gears.
Maybe if this game is a huge sucess they could bring back Advent Rising.
