    They're really putting a lot of emphasis on this being "metroid" and "castlevania"-esque. That's all I've heard about this game...definitely plan on grabbing it because Super Metroid is one of my favs.... I just hope the story is interesting and its not just a boring game that plays like Super Metroid.

    EDIT: After watching that video it seems like it'll definitely have a solid story too...nice

    Play magazine did a cover story on it. The devs took a lot of inspiration from those two games, bringing them up constantly. Looking forward to it.

    Not for long. Epic usually brings their games to PC.

    Anyone else think the environments are kind of bland? Anonymous military facility. Hopefully they add some colorful, non-mechanical shit later on.

    I can't think of any non cartoony 3d side scrollers that have been able to avoid this. Even BC:Rearmed from last year was pretty drab when it came to backgrounds. Seems like they're able to get away with more color and variety if they use sprites.

    um one of the main aspects of the game is finding out where to go next and acquiring new abilities. Combat takes a back seat , although there seems to be some cool looking bosses . I like the fact that you have to find their weakness instead of just shooting them wherever.

    another underground area
    The map is supposed to be massive with tons of routes to take

    The beginning actually reminds me of shadow moses and then seems to progresses into other areas

    I was talking about using different abilities to beat the bosses like in metroid and castlevania

    Not just using a gun like a typical shooter you claim it to be

    Keep trolling though

    The game looks great and its only $15
    I need my metroidvania fix

    Oh so he used his grenades to kill the boss instead of his gun, how innovative! :rofl: I don't think I've ever encountered a boss like that before. :rofl:
