Don’t have much to say about this one and I don’t think it needs any explanation either. Had great fun drawing it. I watched the recent Medal of Honour Warfighter gameplay trailer, how bad can it really look? Not the graphics, they are all good, but the gameplay. That’s exactly the stuff that I’d expect of Battletoads 2013. I won’t bother going into details but every minute of that trailer had me thinking “is this for real or is this parody?”
I’m really waiting for the next thing already. For some time now the thing has been these gritty and grim and single coloured linear action reboots and/or prequels. Guess the previous thing was cartoony graphics. I’m getting a grimdark overdose. I’d even be ready for some cheesy high fantasy. Surely there’s a German studio making one right now, they aren’t big on following trends.
I reinstalled X3: Terran Conflict and have been trying out new get-rich-quick-schemes. I have this space phase going on now, just want to play everything space related. Here I complained about Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion being too unengaging. They improved things to release, it’s easier to see pew pew now and the combat audio is actually audible. It’s an enjoyable RTS now. Endless Space is pretty exciting, bought my way to the ongoing beta and it is very promising indeed. There’s a strong Master of Orion 2 vibe to be had there, just without the tactical combat. ES has a unique way of handling combat, which I enjoy, but am not sure if it has enough depth in the long run. I won’t write more about it now though, in case I end up making a comic about it.
