A mech game? Anyone remember the last time one of these was done well and had decent numbers outside of Japan?

Awesome article TC, just really great info. Curious though, how come you didn't link it so as to make it easier for fellow users to see this info first hand?

Might it have something to do with this little bit you've conveniently left out because you were too busy bashing the competition?

A reliable source—one who was not part of our reporting about the Respawn game—tells us that Microsoft is as much as six months behind in producing content for the new console, despite an expected late-2013 launch. Another tells us that Microsoft recently cancelled several internal next-gen projects because they were not coming together as hoped. These sources have told us that, comparatively, Sony is in better shape and further along with hardware and software development for PlayStation 4.

Hmm, not exactly fair and balanced are we? I sincerely hope you don't aspire to be a journalist in the future.

I was going to make a new topic about that article about an hour ago when it came up on twitter. You should cancel a project if it isn't going well. It is still just another rumor. We will all know more in a month.

Yay another FPS!

Hmm, I had high hopes for respawn's inaugural game, but if it's just g gundam with a shooter twist, I may not care. I'm guessing we'll see some footage at the xbox reveal, ago we shall see.

Sounds cool, but having another shooter as an exclusive? Really?
#18GamerguymassPosted 4/29/2013 9:44:33 PM
Yeah this is hardly a "huge" exclusive. You apparently really really love shooters OP, but this isn't really that big a deal at this time. Will it become more popular as we find out more about it and see actual screens and video of it? Maybe. Until then however it is nothing more then yet another shooter from a new developer. Hardly something to get that excited over.

Haze 2 is going to be awesome.

For those that don't know, Respawn are the guys that were behind Call of Duty originally.

From Kotaku:

The long-awaited first game from Respawn Entertainment—the studio helmed by the creators of Call of Duty—will be exclusive to the next-gen Xbox, according to two unrelated sources familiar with the game. One of our sources indicates that there will also be an Xbox 360 version, but no versions for rival PlayStation and Nintendo consoles.


Oh, you didn't think the console wars were over, did you?

The new game from Respawn is a futuristic multiplayer-centric online shooter, one of our sources says. The source describes the game as a battle of Davids and Goliaths. The Davids are heavily-armed foot soldiers. The Goliaths are the giant exosekeltons—Titans—that these soldiers can pilot. These Titans are big mech-style walkers that move with an agility not seen in games like Mechwarrior or Steel Battalions.

While the details of the game came to us from one source—a source who is in a good position to know what the deal is with Respawn's game—their assertion that the game is destined only for Microsoft console hardware was consistent with information another source gave us earlier this month. That other source had also told us that Respawn's game would only be for the Xbox brand. It is possible that the game could be a timed exclusive, but neither source indicated that was the case.

An Xbox-only Respawn game would be a coup for Microsoft and a fascinating twist to a number of significant sagas. It has implications for publisher EA's rivalry with Call of Duty publisher Activision; for Microsoft's competition with Sony and, less directly with Nintendo; as well as for the ongoing debate about always-online gaming. Two sources have told us that this new game is, in fact, always-online.



Stopped reading there.


Too many big words?


Mm, I doubt that. It's more likely that he has no interest in a multiplayer-centric game, since they suck, outside of actual MMOs. This game will bomb, too.
