Having a blast with the game.

I hate that the bosses run away and you have to find them again if you take too long. I'm not sure how the timer works, but sometimes I only get one hit on a boss before he runs off to another place on the map. Every thing else feels great. Even the weird jumping felt alright after an hour.

I have been playing this game for a few months in early access and I think it is really great. If anyone is on the fence about it, try it out. Although I guess that's a no-brainer for PS+ customers. I don't even regret paying for it on Steam. The only issue I have with it is progression is a tad slow.

I really REALLY wish it was on the Vita. I mean they have mentioned a lot of Monster Hunter inspirations, which I think is a perfect handheld game.

Wait, this finally came out? When it started its early access stuff, I decided to hold off until it was "done," then completely forgot about it altogether. Maybe I'll check this out...

Someone asked about a Vita version on the Playstation Blog post, and they answered, saying they would love to make one. So, hopefully it happens. It could be a great fit for the Vita.

Does remote play work well for this game?

you know .. I love the pixel art.. but when the nice sharp beautiful logo comes up at the end im like.. damn it would be nice if it was sharp like this. As @atwa said, I also wants for Vita.. like Dragon's Crown or ragnarok odyssey, seems like a perfect fit.

Played it for a couple of hours. It seems far too punishing before you can upgrade your gun. Not really feeling it at the moment. I barely feel like I'm making any progress after I finish a mission.

Game is great! You should play it. Very challenging, but loads of fun.

Not sure about the appeal of this game. I've played a couple of hours of it on Steam while it was in early access, and it seemed like every mission was pretty similar, and you could only do one mission at a time. Go collect some things, go kill some things, go kill a thing, or rescue someone, and all in the same environment (until you rank up and move on to the next environment). Gun modifications didn't seem different enough to make it worthwhile. Has it changed drastically in the last few months?

Thursday night co-op!

I was all set to shell out however much this game was when it came out yesterday. Nearly crapped my pants when I saw it was free for PS+ members.

Not sure how I feel about this game yet. I just got to the second area and I really like all of the wrappings, but the game itself just doesn't really grab me. It's kind of like Borderlands, but without the possibility of actually FINDING rare guns in the environment. Maybe if I actually obtained the gun parts at the end of missions instead of just money and crappy crafting supplies, it would feel more rewarding.

I keep crashing. Three times in a row I had to do the annoying capture mission after beating it, crashing, and losing progress. Great game, but buggy in the most annoying way.

I think some of the mission structure in this game is a little meandering, but this is a great game to just be able to pick up on plus day one.

Personally I think this game is all kinds of bad!

I really can see what they are trying to do with all the upgrades and funky visuals, but I just cant get on with it.

Maybe I'm just not giving it a chance and maybe because it's free I don't feel the need to. It's just the controls don't seem quite right. They feel rather sluggish when they aught to be tighter. The constant respawning of enemies, cheap deaths is just not all that fun either.

Reminds me of a poor mans shadow complex! Like super skint.

Really digging this game so far. Was able to make a assault rifle in my first hour. Worked great remote playing it on my vita to.

This game is tedious as hell. Find all 8 of the 8 hostages somewhere on this map? Ok now kill all 8 of these 8 dudes somewhere on this map? Etc.

Posted by graf1k

@north6: Yeah I have to agree. That is the only word for it. Tedious. Maybe it gets better eventually but so far it's a very pretty but rather boring game. The mission types are bad enough but the fact that enemies respawn almost instantly and you have to actually pick items up, the whole thing just sucks the fun out of it all.

I loved Metal Slug so, so much, and I like the art a lot. I wish this game was fun.

This game is 2D Monster Hunter. It's actually shocking how many of the little idiosyncrasies of that game they brought over.

This!

Definitely the most frustrating thing about this game. Other than that it's a solid game; highly recommended!

Just to make sure I am understanding you you're talking Army of Darkness "duuuuuummmbbb" as opposed to plain old Vinny making mustard gas "dumb".

Get boooooooooored.

I.... this is so nuanced I'm not sure what you mean! I guess I don't get the Army of Darkness part, unless you mean it's good, since that is one of my favorite movies from High School. So then bosses running away is good? Hard to envision but I suppose possible. Vinny making mustard gas could be amazing or amazingly dumb, cuz... Vinny!

Seems like PS4 is pulling an Xbox 360 out of the gate. Still don't want one though.
