Looks cool!   Wonder if any could help me out. I remember seeing a trailer somewhere - probably a year ago - of a mech simulator game. A game where you're controlling a HUGE robot in first person view from the character controlling the robot, where you can see all the HUD and whatnot. It's supposed to be very strategic and "realistic". The trailer showed two robots fighting each other in a city with a lot of skyscrapers.   I have NO IDEA what the name of this game is, and I can't find it through searching. I've looked endlessly! O____O Anyone know which game this is?

That WAS supposed to be a new MechWarrior game... and scheduled for release in 06/2010... appereantly it got scrapped... anyways... heres the video...

@Dialyctic: could it possibly be mech-warrior reboot or Armored Core 5

@BombaLuigi: @nikeforces: Omg. A shame such an awesome looking game got scrapped. ;_____;

I hope this fills my Armored Core needs.

Loved Costume Quest until I got hit with the fries glitch, but I guess Ill replay it in the summer.
 
Stacking is one of my favourite games of all time.
 
This should be (and looks) amazing.

Sweet! I was stoked about this.

Let me just add to my previous comments.  The problem with Trenched thus far is not that it isn't simply a mech game. The problem is that it is a simple tower defense game with mechs added in.  The tower defense gameplay elements and, at least, the map design have not been opened up enough to accommodate the idea of what a mech is, basically a tank with legs, and how it is used and what players' conceptions of a mech is and what it does. 
 
There are any number of recent titles that have provided an avatar for direct player control inside a tower defense context.  The idea is not new.  However, on the whole, those games scaled the map and the action to the size and movement capabilities of the avatar.  Trenched, from what I have seen thus far, has not.  The mechs here can traverse the entire game map in mere seconds.  Enemies were being funneled into very confined linear paths like an other tower defense game with little attention or acknowledgement of the absurdity of such a conceit at this 3D, geographic scale map. 
 
If I were to express a preference with respect to game map, player movement, and scale of the entire proceedings, it would be at a much larger geographic level with whole valleys and ranges providing channels and choke points, and the mechs given the full range of their abilities to move and traverse terrain.  Something more like battles in the Starship Troopers movie but with mechs, rather than Pixel Junk Monsters with mechs.

It's a downloadable game dude...
Posted by chickdigger802

slap the dude who said QL EX sucked.  This is awesome ;)

Posted by TheHT

Great QLEX. Game looks like it'd be really fun with 4 players.

Posted by emem

Wow, I must really have a bad taste in games, everyone seems to like it except me. ;)

Posted by fishmicmuffin

That game looks like a lot of fun. They made a lot of good decisions with how to handle the community stuff too.

Mr lepton needs to design his own game for disk, sounds like it would be pretty cool. But within it's parameters, so does Trenched, Though I thought it had more potential in genre preference than he states. The mechs after all, from what I saw today, tend to depend on line of sight, and to my mind blends into a shooter that deploys turrets. I suspect there are missiles, even guided missiles, but I do not believe I saw them. Machine guns, shotgun(!) cannon I saw.

"So much for you, tube."
 
That's it. That right there. Either this game is the best or the worst thing ever made.

Looks awesome, seems like a good twist on the tower defense genre (which is what you need to do if you're going to make a tower defense game in 2011...). Playing this co-op seems like it would be a blast, definitely gonna pick this up when it's released.

Looks like a neat idea.
 
@RazielCuts - No.  Generally we refer to a knob as like a door knob or a rounded piece of hardware.

I really want to play this but I need other people to have this before taking a chance on this.

Posted by nickux

Couldn't help noticing lots of people from Area5 were playing the game when he brought up the Regiment screen. It's pretty cool when you recognize names like that, knowing all these people live in San Francisco I guess it's not too surprising.

Analog saluting!

Posted by Qirex

Please let this come out on steam or psn!

Posted by dtheg1

I saw the main menu screen and clicked "start game". 
This paused the video. 
I am an idiot.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

This looks awesome. I love tower defence games and I'm into firing off as many guns at the same time as possible, so day 1 purchase!

I can't accept calling a mech a 'trench'.  Call it anything you like, just don't use a word that has a different combat related meaning.  
 
Also, standing on top of a mech surrounded by sandbags doesn't seem like the best place to control one from. 

Posted by Ravenousrattler

definitely downloading this as soon as its available.

Jesus christ, 12 year olds in the comment section or what. 
  
Game looks awesome anyway.

Posted by Delta_Ass

I think the King cannon is supposed to be the AC20.

Posted by notha

happy 420 indeed

Posted by Shisnopi

I WANT THIS GAME!!!

Posted by Swaboo

pretty sure the sandbag thing was meant to be humorous. and i think calling it a trench is ok since it's an alternate universe where anything can have a different name
Posted by Mumrik

Some really seriously bad menu systems in this game as far as I can tell.
 
Also, "So much for you, tube!". Oh my...
 
Anyway, I'm not too sure about the basic gameplay here, but everything else about the video had me smiling.

Posted by ScreamingFist

Wow this is hands down one of my favorite quick looks next to that scorpion spider game for the Wii.  This game looks super fantastic and I can't wait to play it.  I'm telling everyone about it.  Great job as always guys (GB and DF)!!!

Saluting= Best thing of 2011 so far

Posted by The_Nubster

Oh my god, the salutes. I need this I need this I need this.

MAGNETS.

Posted by selbie

I got tripped out when people kept saying Brad and Jeff and it wasn't GB's Brad or Jeff.
 
Also Brad sounds very similar to Randy Pitchford.

Impeccable Collection Pod is pure genius.

Posted by ICryCauseImEmo

I am so buying this game. I'v needed another Mech game since Mech assault.

Posted by MadaRenrut

why does the giantbomb staff seem like they would drop to their knees and service double fine if they asked.  this game doesn't look great, and all their other games weren't that great.  i couldn't even really finish watching the quick look i was so bored with it.

Posted by FoxMulder

why is this Xbox only?  They are only getting half the possible profit they could make if they did it for both...

Posted by EuanDewar

Wow, you guys have had this in waiting for a month haven't you? Great QL. Certainly the bext EX.

Posted by ImperiousRix

I was sold on the game before even seeing any gameplay.  I love this amount of customization in a game, and any game that emphasizes cooperative gameplay over competitive has its heart in the right place in my opinion. 
Double Fine can't be stopped!

Posted by Ghostbuster123

I really wanted to see him use fire those 2 cannons. :(

Posted by Brendan

If the Double Fine guys happen to be reading these comments, I just want to say:  You guys are head and shoulders above any other studio dudes that have come down for Quick Look EX's.  Come back any time.  

Posted by HT101

Even though this QL had some of the dumbest stuff going on,  they were still able to show all the different parts of the game and I must say this game looks pretty great.  I will probably get this day one.
