There has to be some kind of run or fast roll, right? The characters can't always be walking and moving that slowly.

Like the look and music though.

I need this.

looks a bit easy, doesn't it? Still looks solid though. I'll pick this up during some sale down the line.

I have a week off work starting July 22nd :D

Not a huge Metal Slug fan, but I do like gun crafting.

The sprite animations look great. This is totally a PS4 purchase for me. It was one of the E3 demo games I was most excited about. I'm really surprised no one has ever created a Metal Slug shump with gun crafting. Can't wait...

Looks awesome. Borderlands x Metal Slug, who knew?

Also, dam, mad people bringing out the wet blankets to the party.

Woah, I have never seen pixel art like that. It seemed... so smooth? Almost unnatural. Like the way the guy's mouth moved in particular, it felt pretty unreal. Cool, but unnerving.

Couldn't care much about the game, mind you.

That's Paul Robertson for you. He puts a ridiculous amount of effort into his sprite work and is probably one of the best pixel artists out there (though I'm sure he's collaborating with others, of course).

YO DAWG CHECK DEM JIGGLIN PIXEL TITTIES

Yeah, this bothered me as well. Paul Robertson seems to really love doing that. It put me off playing the Scott Pilgrim game. Also, in this game, all the guys seem to be wearing proper clothes and the girls are in tank tops and panties.

Might be fun even if it just looks like a consolized, modernized Metal Slug (i.e. an inferior Metal Slug).

I'll check his work out, it was impressive.

EDIT: I love this: http://visublog.mechafetus.com/archives/1323 Shame about his obsession with tits and ladies slitting themselves.

Is this the same guy who did Scott Pilgrim? I'm not a fan of the art style at all, everything looks way too bulky.

Posted by TDot

So wait, this Kickstarter game does the exact same thing as the DoubleFine game is doing but for some reason it's awesome for these guys but Doublefine gets called scam artists? How does that work?

Posted by Andorski

Combat looks disappointingly simplistic. Was this game ever in beta? I wish I tried the game out first before putting down money for it.

The boob jiggle is a little perturbing...

Yep. I agree, also.

Watching this game for some reason puts me off it, i like the music, i like Metal Slug... i don't know, will probably get it just to prove myself wrong, i'm sure i'd like it more once i'm playing instead of watching.

Maybe it's because i didn't like the Scott Pilgrim game.

I hope this is a rogue like that's a new genre I am really interested in buying into

Posted by jellotek

lol. I thought the developer was Mercenary King, and the game was called Bad Ass Pixels. :|

Posted by PoisonJam7

This looks pretty awesome. That song was cool too.

Oh, and @funkasaurasrex I was afraid of saying that in fear of looking like an idiot, so thank you for saying it for me.

Posted by Benmo316

Hopefully this is out on PS4 on day one. I foresee a lot of hours being played with my friends.

Posted by Petervs

Posted by Majkiboy

Turned off by the boob physics.

Posted by SupberUber

This is mondo-grade awesome, wow!

Agree, I definitely noticed it and I don't like it. I did back the Kickstarter though and it does look fun, so I will play it because I love Metal Slug so we'll see how it goes. Broforce does look awesome, though and at least is centered around "bros" in a funny way.

Hmmm, I'm not convinced there is anything interesting gameplay wise that hasn't been done 20 years ago. I guess gun crafting is kinda new for this genre, but other than that it looks like they just reinvented the wheel.

Posted by sonicrift

It looks like Metal Slug, in terms of some of the gameplay and the fact that it utilizes pixel art and high quality animation. Also, there's a literal metal slug as an eneny, so 10 points for that.

All this needs now is someone saying "Heavy Machine gun" or "Rocket Lawnchair."
