Looks mighty impressive. Let me guess. Red Star Alliance are the evil bad aboninably nasty guys, right?

The Elderly said...

...how did you know that? that's incredible...

..yea something about yello eyed, terrorism, and communist

the chinese and Russians never stood a chance....

....

J said...

Hey! I'm part Chinese and Russian.

...

...

Nah, not really! *giggles*

It's annoying me slightly already that the Wii's lack of power in comparison to the PS3 and Xbox 360 is excluding us Wii owners from games such as this. I don't own a 360 or a PS3 - so that's me screwed.

The Elderly said...

the 360 is currently experiencing a drought of good games, I've had the system for some time now, and yet for the last 5 weeks i've been playing my trusty ps2....

games like this look terrific, Gears of war was sheer eyecandy heaven, but I still abandoned it halfway thru to embark on a Prince of persia fest....

gameplay wins every time....

gnome said...

Indeed.... in stark contrast to the workers.. Bah!

The Elderly said...

..one day the workers will overcome, i'ts written in the great book....

gnome said...

Where?

Ah, there. Well, 't was just positive thinking that... :(

The Elderly said...

no thats Norman Vincent Peel your looking at..

it's written in this book...

(drags leather bound tome into the middle of the room, blows dust of the cover....emlazoned in gold letters on the cover are

The Great Book

TheTimeRunner said...

Finally a game that doesn't have itself anchored on current politics.

...

who am I kidding.

I thought communists were no longer the enemy? I thought it was now people like the Taliban... You know the ones we trained to erm... fight the communists...

gnome said...

Quite a point you got there Father, but Im pretty sure my grandparents didn't consider the communists to be the enemy... Nazis were the enemy and then a few months later working-class Athens learnt how beautiful a napalm bomb smells...

Anyway... The Great Book. Yes, I see now. I saw the light! And it was enough to open up my eyes! Thanks to you wise mr. Elderly. Thank you!

The Elderly said...

(feeling quite chuffed with himself the elderly permits himself a broad smile...)

.. why, why thank you dear Gnome...

the elderly would like to point out that none of the posts on this blog purport to shore up support for a war on China or Russia.... we would also advise on the danger of playing as a Chinese or Russian Soldier, give the heightened sensitivity about such things... remember theres no broadband in Guantanemo..

though they do have really cheerful boiler suits...

gnome said...

And lovely sounding chains too...

:)

The Elderly said...

..indeed quite musical.... I beleive some of the teenage inmates, have developed quite the repetoire.....

Ev said...

Man, that looks like it could be pretty cool. Hopefully it's not too much of a battlefield rip off and not too derivative of other war games of its ilk. The last game I played like this was WarRock, one of those free games offerings and it was okay, although now they've introduced a pay model as well.

The dev team has promise and I like the video. Balance and no bugs will be important in keeping this one awesome.
