Iron Brigade TNT Debut / Trenched Reprise?

#1 Posted by Chippy180 (161 posts) -

With Tre Iron Brigade making it's European debut(With the exception to some jerk faces) do you think there will be any chance of this getting another shot on TNT, possibly accompanied by some dirty Trackmania dubstep? Personally I would love to see them throw down in the new survival mode, and I'm sure indie-Cliff Blezinski Brad Muir and some of the other Double Finer's would be up for some more Giant Bomb chaos.

So, am I dreaming in monovision or is there a chance of this dream coming to light?

After finally getting my hands on Drenched today, I'm totally in favour of this happening.

I wasn't very excited for this hearing about it in preceding weeks, but after finishing Skyrim last night and seeing Trenched in its newly named glory I'm kind of excited to hop back in.

Yeah, the unthinkable has happened: I'm playing Trenched instead of Skyrim. Endless mode is hard, rewarding, and encourages effective group play. Basically, it's a big chunk of what Trenched was missing. Money is still beyond useless (I wish there were a few pieces of really awesome gear available for, like, $200k or something) and the early pieces of gear are still easy too get, but I haven't seen the level 40+ gear at all yet, so that's encouraging. It's something to actually work towards.

If the Bombcast crew are accurate with their predictions then we might see Martian Bear in another month or so. That'd be awesome.

I played it last night and it was still fun. Me and some random dudes got to wave 25 and that was with 3 Volt Droppers in a row.

I hadn't played it in months, broke it out tonight, though and the survival mode is great! We got to wave 31 before we had Big Willies with Jacobs coming from every single direction. We killed 3 but the fourth one murdered us.

I really hope this game gets another TNT once the Martian Bear DLC is released. It's such a fun game. I'm not usually much of a mutliplayer gamer. I prefer single player experiences with an occasional split screen co-op if the right friends are over. But Trenched (I don't care what the label says) is one of those that is worth breaking out the headset for. It's good enough that I can justify breaking my usual anti-social behavior.

@david3cm: Finishing Skyrim...?

#10 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

@benspyda: Finishing Skyrim in the sense that dragons are now an eye-rolling inducing experience instead of a thrilling one and I should be by all rights considered the 10th divine (9th if you are an Imperialist bastard) since I am so over powered,. Not finished in the sense that I have seen everything.

Just bought the DLC to play in tonight's TNT, but I can't find any of the content in the menus. To you have to complete the base game to access those levels? Or maybe I can access the DLC levels in multiplayer but not single-player? Argh!

@DarkFury: Was wondering about this. I bought the game a few days ago and really haven't got that deep into it, I'm onto the Africa levels and am at rank 6, so I dunno. I haven't checked whether you can access survival modes but I think you have to finish the base game to access single player DLC.

However, IIRC on the TNT where Ryan played Iron Brigade for the first time he was able to jump into games with more experienced players and play levels that he hadn't unlocked yet in single player so it might work that way.

@GolazoDan: If you wanna jump on and try playing the Survival to test it, let me know. I can't scroll to either the Survival or Mars in the mission selector but maybe after joining another player it'll work.

I hope the last 30 minutes or so will be Jeff playing Trackmania!
