Today recently, I saw a news about a mecha game called Strike Suit Zero by doublesix. Not much information about the game itself but doublesix released this teaser video couple days ago.

So this is supposed to come out next week wednesday. There's a deal in Green Man Gaming to get a Steam code for the game for 25% off if you use "GMG25-XTYYZ-POSL1" when pre-purchasing.

I only noticed this game a few weeks ago looking at the "New Games" section here, but the more I've seen of it the cooler it looks. I probably won't be pre-purchasing, but will definitely be following the release to try and figure if it's for me or not.

Although the normal flight seems like a space sim the robot suit part reminds me of Cybernator on the SNES. With that alone I think i'm going to go ahead and pick it up on GMG.

I almost bought this as a knee jerk reaction, but I want to see the quicklook go up before I do.

I hadn't heard of doublesix before and in trying to remember something I never knew about in the first place, I thought of slantsix and immediately became upset. After I realized my mistake and I went to the images on the wiki and OH MY GOSH IT IS SO PRETTY AND HAS SPACE MECHS AND I THINK THIS GAME WAS MADE FOR ME!

Really curious about this one, hope we get a QL before release or I might just have to jump in "blind".

This reminds me of the game I wanted Omega Boost to be, god damn did I ever enjoy me some Mechas in space. I'm not planning on buying anything 'til my backlog is complete but this is going on the list for sure.

After looking around to see if this was worth buying, I decided to bite the bullet and get this. It's really fun!

I dunno if it's just that I haven't played a space sim or a space shooter in a long time (The Old Republic's space sequences don't count) but the dogfighting is really fast and frantic but never confusing, and the movement is responsive enough for me to keep up with multiple enemies. Granted I've only played the first two missions, but it's made a great impression on me.

My biggest gripe is replayability. Apparently the biggest hook there is getting medals and performance upgrades from doing better in the levels, but co-op or a level editor (or even just a mission/skirmish creation option) would've be real nice. But at 16 bucks I figured what was there would be good enough.

Oddly enough the thing that drew me in to this game was the whole Macross mech thing, but the more I looked at it the more I just really wanted to play a space shooter. I dunno how much of a sim this is really, after seeing things like Evochron Mercenary this reminds me more of a Rogue Squadron type deal but stil not quite as arcadey as that.
