so the new Metal Slug is a TBShttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqF0KLsaf6U
steam page is also up:https://store.steampowered.com/app/1590760/Metal_Slug_Tactics/
How random. It would've been less weird if they went with e.g. Metal Slug: Kart Racing.
TBT chads... I kneel
>>635338Cool artwork and based.
>>635338So is there any story to this or is it just like Xcom, where you replay a bunch of skirmish maps to make numbers go big?
>>635675implying the original game didn't have story about fighting aliens all the way to mother ship.
>>635675Not sure what you mean. Every XCOM game has a story.
>we want the Pathway audienceWhat?
>>635740>PathwayI thought it had pretty slick combat... and not much else. This trailer makes it seem like there won't be much variety in this game either.
Looks cool, I wonder if it will have a multiplayer mode
>>635356Booba is love Booba is life
>>635338Metal Slug has so many characters introduced through that freemium game I'm not surprised they want to try a crack at a different type of game. I fully expect people to be turned off by the giant sword swinging bitch.
>>635928Combat was fun but bland, the rest if the game was just plain bland.After you played it once the only way to get any more excitment was to mod in crazy shit.
>>636174I mean, the flanking system was nice when you didn't want to deal with rng, knifing armored foes was fun and snipers were given a different role than the plain old sharpshooting. If all this was put in a more flavorful context it would've been a nice game.
>>635338im interested. not preordering, but ill follow this. hope it turns out good and is easily moddable
I’n glad they’re making strategy games out of 90s scrolling shooters. Those always had the best vehicle designs and yet the most you see of them is the seconds it takes to kill it.
>>636984But Metal Slug was about HEAVY MACHINEGUN and OKAY, blasting bosses to epic rock, not thoughtful strategy. Strategy is more about epic orchestras, not rock, with very rare exceptionshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM4gp-S5jg4
>>637017>But Metal Slug was about HEAVY MACHINEGUN No it wasn't, it was all about the ROCKET LAWNCHAIR!
I will buy it on GOG.
Gajin shit gameprobably cheap lazy hack
>>637036Bitch please, DOUMASHINGAN
>>635338Oh, wow, I woudn't have expected the art style to hold up that well in isometric perspective. I'll be keeping an eye out.
>>637017>Metal Slug was aboutOk but this is Metal Slug Tactics not Metal Slug.
>>635356The art is so weird.
>>635338Doesn't Eri have the lowest rank from all four? Why does the trailer make her look like she is second in command?
>>635675Simple like always. Rogue general with a vengeance boner and his fanatically loyal army are on the loose, you go in and stop him while causing as much collateral damage as possible. Aliens and supernatural stuff are at times involved or not. Depends on the game.
>>635356NoooooooFio suppose to be most feminine of cast!!!!!!!!!!!
>>641412She still is.
>>635675>Needing or caring about story in a strategy gameCringe
>>635338Art looks nice, but it's very hard to determine what gameplay will be like. Maps seem small, and cover will probably not as important, so its probably not a nu-com.
>>637475I will pirate and seed
>>641545thank god it's not a nu-com
>>641419But she has abs.....
