Any /m/ games worth getting in the current sale?
I'm really curious about Gigantic Army since it looks like a new version of Assault Suits Valken.
Provisional list of /m/ steam games worth getting if you haven't already:
Under 5 tier:
>Deus Ex: Human revolutions
>System shock 2
Under 10 tier:
Over 40 tier:
I have Gigantic Army, and it's fun for a few hours, but no Valken.
IIRC, you have to choose two weapons (1 normal and 1 special) and have to play through the whole game with just them. Even so, the Grenade Launcher is so overpowered that you don't really want the other main weapons.
One thing it does better than Valken is skating (VOTOMS-like) and firing many missiles at once. Aside from that, it's pretty generic.
I don't know... something tells me that Gigantic Army was a side project or something, because the game just abruptly ends, all of its "modes" are just the story mode with mission selection, and the "balance system" (you can't choose the 2 strongest weapons) is kinda useless, since the grenade launcher can just cut through anything.
That and you only have 1 life. Die, and it's off to Stage 1. Like I said, what I liked was skating. You can actually skate backwards in this game, and it's awesome to do so while firing a volley of missiles or just running from an enemy.
A more polished game is Gunhound EX, although it's quite short (I think it only has 5 or 6 stages), and has too many cutscenes for my taste.
I'm VERY wary of Indie games, since I've been burned hard a few times by those. They'll have nice graphics, or have simple grahpics. But I'll play them and think about how they don't compare to the original side scrollers I played 20 years ago.
Star trek mod
Star wars mod
Battlestar galactica mod
etc etc etc....
Both are in early access but
Sky Rogue is sort of like ace combat but with a very different art style. Lots of good mods like one to pilot a ball
Project Nimbus is an aerial mech game that already has a load of cool suits to try
Gigantic Army was pretty fun, but yeah, like >>13704734
said it's nothing special.
I got Empyrion: Galactic Survival a little while ago. You can't build mechs, but you can make your own spaceships and zoom around, it's reasonably entertaining if you like building things.
I imagine KSP would be enjoyable to any /m/an, assuming they don't have it already.
I've never played Armed Seven, but all the other ones are shmups. Vulkaiser can get pretty bad because of grazing (you can only get hit in the midsection of the robot), but since the robot is positioned horizontally, it's quite hard to see where the midsection is when you're being peltered by a million bullets. Usually in danmakus, the hitbox glows when the enemy fires at you, but this doesn't always happen in Vulkaiser, so it's even harder to correctly dodge stuff. Maybe a bug? And you actually have to aim your shots (no passive shower of bullets, like in every other danmaku).
You also only have 1 life. Die, and it's off to the beginning.
Sounds interesting. 1.30$ sounds right up my alley, cheap enough to not drain my back account.
Op get slave zero. It's like cyberpunk with cyborgs mecha boosting around and punching helicopters. Love it.
>Op get slave zero.
Oh wow. Nostalgia rush. I read gaming mags back in the day, and I thought that game looked really neat. Then when it came out all the people slammed it as shit. I'll get it for 1.50 since it's at least worth that.
There's a Humble Bundle out right now with a new Front Mission game included. It's like five or six bucks.
(But the real star is Life is Strange, which is amazing, but unfortunately has no robots in it. You also get all the Just Cause games.)
The Alltynex Trilogy is reliable enough, although Reflex obviously aged better than the rest.
>Then when it came out all the people slammed it as shit.
I think that was because of the Dreamcast port.
