I've never been too fond of mech combat games, even though they are not really much different from "standard" FPS games. This one though looks promising...which I think I said earlier in this thread? :???: Anyway, I'll definitely give this a chance.

Anyone else like the sound design? I'm assuming it too needs more work, but so far I'm liking it.

Yeah it might just be me. I remember in World of Warcraft; I never enjoyed killing the mechanical units as much as I did enjoy killing the beast/humanoid ones. I also love every match that involves a zerg or terran in starcraft, but protoss games are boring.

Yeah its probably just me..

I think one key challenge for mech games in general is perception among gamers that it is too much "work" to play. In other words, in a standard FPS game you run around and shoot, maybe switch weapons and use a few gizmos. If you think about CoD MP, yes it is much deeper than say Q3:Arena but it still feels like "run around and shoot" to the mass market shooter gamer. But for mech game, whether true or not, I think there is this perception with the mech that you don't have the same freedom to run around the way you do in a standard FPS game and on top of that you have to "manage" the systems on board your mech similar to a complex airplane sim. It may have to do simply with how you have a crowded HUD (i.e. the cockpit) and that alone turns some people off.

Or

Who gives a shit. :nag:

looks freaking awesome

I have no idea why people are saying it looks like District 9 though. That movie took place mostly in a ghetto.

Have you even seen the film?

I wouldnt have commented if I didnt.

This is what I think of when I think of Distrcit 9

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
