I enjoy Squad DM quite a bit more than the other modes, I just hope that DICE figures out an easier way for friends to play together

Anyone know anything about this game? I played the trial version...seems kinda fun. For only 10 bucks...but was wondering if anyone has played the actual game?

Chris

hey, pretty nice game! Played the trial game as well and its seems suprisingly deep and fun.  The devs states that its coming to XBOX Live marketplace under "Indie Games" so I might wait to get it until then.

Isn't Dana Delaney an auburn/redhead?  Marg Helgenberger as well.

So I ended up geeking out completely and bought myself a 12-month subscription to XNA Creators Club Online which allows me to publish indie games on the console. Hopefully you'll see one or more games from me there in the future. I've got a very clear idea of what my first project will be (down to the contents of the menu screens) and I've got the game coding experience to pull it off. This should be fun. smile

Sweet, keep us updated on your game  thumbsup

Played for a couple of hours. Not sue I'm really getting the battles so far. You've only got a graphical depiction for one weapon (or maybe it's for the ship) but that doesn't mean all are in range, nor can you see minimum distance. Using dodge can be catastrophically bad...and it really seems like a guessing game as to what you should do.

Usually, the enemy is color coded to represent what actual charge they are at during the battle.  When the enemy is at green or yellow, all he could do is fire a normal shot or dodge.  And when the enemy charges up all the way to red, most likely the enemy will do a barrage attack, and thats when you should dodge.  In the early part of the game, I can understand how battles are limited since we only have 3 options to choose from, but later we will get six battle commands and bigger fleets/crew

I'm way more interested in this game than in Final Fantasy XIII, so I'll be glad to read any impressions as you guys move forward in the game!

-Autistic Angel

I have FFXIII, just started chapter 11.  I started Resonance of Fate just this Tuesday and I have to say that its like the opposite of the latest Final Fantasy.  For example in FFXIII, the battle system is slowly unraveled to you.  But in Resonance the whole battle system is laid out to you in the beginning. Traveling the world map is somewhat limited in the beginning, but not linear.  And already there are optional hunter missions available at the guild.  The battles themselves are what impress me the most, gun-duels that remind me of Gun-kata  (from the movie Equilibrium).  So far they seem very well done with great animations. Like someone else in this thread noted, the battle system is like Eternal Sonata or Valkyrie Chronicles, but much more complex and strategic.   I'm only 4-5 hours in so I'll have more impressions later.


Thanks!  I'm especially curious about the difficulty curve and how challenging it is to get a handle on the different combat mechanics.  Due to how the whole system is unleashed on the player right from the start, the early reviews have talked about feeling overwhelmed.  I don't mind learning how to change up my tactics to beat a particular enemy type, but that's tough to do if you aren't given enough information on how all the different systems operate.

Still, I'd prefer a game that expects me to puzzle a few things out for myself over one that's so overprotective, it stops just short of taking the controller out of my hand and saying, "Here, just let me do it."  I'd rather try and fail on my own merits than "win" because I did such a super-keen job of pressing the Auto-Attack button.

As you play: do you feel like the game is set up to allow different strategies towards the same goal, or is it more of a puzzle to figure out the one right way to beat a specific challenge?

-Autistic Angel

To answer your question, so far the game (the battles) is set up to allow different strategies towards the same goal as you said.  The only puzzle aspect of it is using an item to get complete stats of an enemy type (Like Final Fantasy's Libra spell) and using that knowledge to plan your battle tactics accordingly.  I'm just at the point in the game right now that I can start upgrading and crafting different parts for my weapons (i.e. optics, larger magazines, specialized ammo, etc)
The battle system itself is deeper than I thought and will take practice, especially the "tri-attack". 

Oh yeah, and if you die (and you will) you can either pay 100 credits for a retry, or pay nothing and load a saved game.

more like crazy black guy asshole white guy.  I'm just hoping this is a horrible rumor or the guy got his info wrong.  IIRC the developers said they designed Lynch with Willis in mind; I could live with the roles reversed but it seems kinda stupid to do something like this with the next game just around the corner.

You do know that Hollywood = stupid, yes?

Nice.  That is a lot of kinetic kills, unless of course the enemy are aliens from the "V" universe, getting killed by our bio weapon grenades.

Battle stress can make ANY man do almost anything. I wouldn't be surprised if it did actually happen.
The victors tend to paint history the way they want, often leaving out the horrors they committed.

In Vietnam we used to shoot body parts off VC while the others watched and threw them out of choppers as part of interrogation.

The Vietcong would put human excrement in the Punji sticks to help create infections in wounds.

All through history there are accounts of man doing the most unspeakable things to each other. Nothing would surprise me.

I support our troops 100% and they definitely don't get paid enough for their sacrifice. In war there is a great deal of hypocrisy, however.



Hatred for the enemy can/will seduce you to do things, you never though yourself capable of.

Two knife hits from the front and no invincibility while leaping across 15' of space would balance the knife fine.  Of course from what I've seem of Infinity Ward with this game I doubt anything of the sort will happen.

I played the hell out of this game and got my money's worth x100.  However, near the end I stopped having fun.

When are they gonna let us play as the Taliban? That should change up the gameplay a bit.

how can you be in chapter 10 and still think that about Hope? You're insane or you completely missed a vital awesome chapter.

Yep, can't wait for that.  We played against a really terrible team for a while last night (with the exception of Proner and his brother 'Fumble who were carrying the whole team).  I really enjoy the huge maps of conquest, some of them are really vehicle oriented and I'm happy to say some of them aren't.

This is great, but it requires a set-up.

This guy named Guy went in to the BBC for a job interview to be a supply manager.  Turns out the news was waiting on another guy named Guy to give expert opinion on the whole Apple, Inc vs Apple Corps law suit.  A woman came into the waiting room and called for Guy.  The first guy went with her.  He was then interviewed on camera about the Beatles and iPods.  He went along with it, thinking it was part of the interview process for supply manager.

His expression on hearing the reporter announce the wrong name is priceless.

I guess the guy has become a bit of a hero in the UK for going with the flow.

Loved it.  Did "Guy" get the job? I was impressed how he handled himself during the interview.
