New games are exciting, but there are thousands of classics that most people have never played or even heard of. Peter delves into his ever-growing collection in search of underexposed and misunderstood games from the past.
Schedule: Mondays at 11am PT
Host: Peter Brown
hm, so metal warriors laid the foundation for CoD style games ?
I dont get it ... and I fail to see the relation between a classic game
and a recently developed, superficial cash.grab game.
Glad you guys are playing Metal Warriors. Brings back fond memories playing head to head against my brother. I always wished this game had co-op.
The "Ball" turret mech was LucasArt's clear inspiration for certain droids in Star Wars: Episode I. ;)
Game looks awesome! Glad I watched it.
This game was AWESOME. Make no mistake - its campaign SUCKED, but its multiplayer was a blast. I always had friends over as a kid and dueled them in crazy fun mech battles.
Aside from it having mechs, saying this game is even somwhat similar to Titanfall is a bit of a stretch lol.
I am surprised that pseudospike/psuedospike hasn't demanded an episode for games by Treasure yet. That dude is a fanboy of Treasure.
I remember playing that game a lot but I could never pass the part with the too slow mech defending the space ship.
This game was pretty neat for its time. There was just something about it. It wasn't the best game of its kind but it's one of those hidden-gem kind of games that's buried in the SNES library, the kind where you wonder why it isn't more loved than it is. Dragon Fighter was one of those games for me on the NES.
The shooting could've been a little bit better as this is one of those games where you really can't help getting hit by enemy fire (thankfully you take a lot of hits in a mech), but even so it was already better than a lot of games on the SNES. I also didn't care for controlling a human the size of an ant when you had to get out of your mech to infiltrate smaller spaces where your mech couldn't go. I would've gladly taken a screen blackout and had it load a regular on-foot shooter level instead. While you're on the field and trying to hijack an empty mech, they really couldn't have done much else, but the indoor areas needed a little more love.
@hitomo what the hell are you talking about!
@Gaming-Planet You are not alone, I loved this game! I was, and still am, a big fan of the giant anime mech genre. Do you remember Target Earth for the Genesis? Also a great game.
