Never heard of this game. Lets check it out.

Hybrid looked cool before. We'll see how this is.

Good morning giant bomb!

@Kaburorne: Only up at 6am because I had to register for classes!

Night peeps. For another few hours...

The only thing less certain than a Hybrid Beta is a Hybrid Alpha.

The worst part of Gears online was 2 people behind cover shooting at each other indefinately was annoying. So making an entire game based around it?

It does look cool. Haven;t watched the video in full but hopefully it's on PC and a beta for it.

You people are incredibly fast lol

Posted by WilltheMagicAsian

This seems really boring.

Posted by Morningstar

Brad! Brad! Brad!

Posted by ds8k

This looks really, really awful. There's nothing fun about only cover shooting.

Edited by deerokus

Based purely on this video... I wish this game was faster paced. Moving around the map seems a bit slow. Taking out the 'moving between cover' part of the game could have given them the opportunity to go really fast, Vanquish paced even, as it is it just seems like a third person shooter stripped down to the cover system.

the noise for that assassin robot is just terrifying

Posted by CaLe

This is too much of a game.

Posted by Nycalexdunk

AND BRAD DIESSSSSSSSSSS I litarally just lmfao when i saw him get one shotted.

Posted by Le0hart

Oh man, this game looks kinda boring and frustrating if the other team holes up. Does not bode well for final game. Kinda skeptical about if it would be any fun.

Posted by Maginnovision

That first match he was in was the most boring shooter action I've seen. Everyone on the enemy team just camped and shot at brads team when they'd put their heads up. I don't even want to play in the beta.

Wow, this looks much better than what I was expecting from a developer that's made simple platformers with large dictionary-based content systems. (It's been years and I still don't know how to describe Scribblenauts.)

That said, whoa, is this a new Time To Death champion for Brad? That was super fast.

Does seem like if one team just holds up in a dead-end piece of cover they are going to win, anyone approaching is at a disadvantage. Very obvious in the first game there, but the second one seemed a lot better - map had more routes going through it which is what you need to avoid that situation as much as possible.

Posted by Droop

This looks fucking dumb.

Posted by adam1808

Like what I'm seeing, especially the snappy 60 frames per second and nice weapon feedback

Posted by Mumrik

This is different - it just doesn't look fun (to me).

I can't shake that feeling that they're throwing away their Scribblenauts money here. I don't get why a company like that would even consider doing something FPS/3PS related.

Posted by jedge

Just as a heads up - there's plenty of beta codes left on GameSpot if you've got an account with them, but the beta is US only.

So, here you go American duders: 9FC?W-J34PF-4JD?R-KPC4Y-DJK4Z

Seeing as Brad's made me paranoid about bots trawling the Internet for codes like this, the first question mark is the first letter in my username, and the second is the number of games in the Mass Effect series so far.

It's the same type of thing that could be said about KotH in GoW3, but that isn't what happens unless one team is really good and the other is really bad. All that is needed is some kind of bomb or smoke grenade that could cover a team approaching a capture zone/hold up area.

I got a code from gamespot so ill give it a go. the moment weirdly reminds me of full spectrum worrier.

Yeah, it could use Vanquishes faster pace, it still is a pretty interesting looking game though.

Posted by UricTheOddball

First match they showed did not look fun at all. 2nd one looked much more interesting. Might have to take a closer look.

Edited by Tennmuerti

Yea ... no. 

I was bored by the end of this QL.
As expected removing free movement didn't suddenly make tps more tactical, flanking still be flanking.
Would this even be on anyone's radar if it wasn't by the team that made Scribblenauts?
Better, budget online shooters are sent out to die everyday. (obvious hyperbole to get a point across)
Nothing about this seems worth of note over all the other competition out there, where's the hook?
Tiny maps, 3v3, samey boring looking environments, restricted movement, are just further negatives to me. 
 
(any semblance of rational thought stops here)
It's like a snowflake trying to be unique, but just looks kind of like an amputaded version of other snowflakes.
Amutated snowflakes, now there is a morbid thought.
I suddenly pictured a self aware, alive snoflake screaming in agony and horrow as it's legs get cut off with a saw and a pool of blood spreading underneath, it's tears and sobs intermingling with the screaming.
Too far?
 
Yeah probably too far.
Maybe playing the Walking Dead earlier today had something to do with this train of thought.

Posted by Village_Guy

Oh god, the first time I heard that assassin-bot I freaked out. It sounded maybe a bit like a pig squealing with some other effects over it.

Posted by Prismatic

I kind of like the idea of the game but like Ryan said the maps could be a little better. The second wasn't to bad but the first just let you hole up and win.

Yeah I had the same thought, just couldn't be bothered to make a longer comment. Don't know if there's a grenade / smoke equivalent in this, though, but it'd be incredibly useful if there was.

i kinda want this to be on the ps3

Posted by Drebin_893

Really enjoyed this quick look, thanks guys.

Posted by vikingdeath1

I really hope this turns out as Awesome and as crazy as it appears to be!

Posted by phrosnite

This looks very interesting but also super dumb...

Posted by Scribbly

Definitely reminds me of EndWar... that game was underrated, and the multiplayer was really interesting.

Posted by Humanity

This is beta so maybe things will change but they seem to be really dropping the ball on the maps side of things. People are upside down and whatnot but there still only appears to be one plane you move on. They could have effectively capitalized on what Dark Void was hinting at with vertical cover. Time will tell.

Posted by Brian_P

This looks like one of those XBLA games that stays relevant for about a week and then becomes quickly forgotten. Thanks for playing Brad. so I don't have to.

Posted by Zeemod

So far it seems too linear. Not enough cover locations to make the game fun or interesting. Neat mechanics though.

Posted by RVonE

Seems unique, but also very boring.

Posted by Quantical

It looks like it will get really boring pretty quickly. I like the idea of the flying from point to point but in a multiplayer game you need a bit more than that.

Posted by UberExplodey

Did not enjoy.

Posted by pornstorestiffi

Don't know which term i should use, generic or mediocre. Maybe both.

Posted by Cazamalos

When you remove half of the mechanics of a shooter you also remove half the fun, waiting behind a cover until someone pass in front of you completely unnoticed of your presence sounds like the boring part of TPSs

Posted by Excast

This looks like the kind of game that might be fun for an hour or two, but gets boring in a hurry.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

People thinking of this as needing to be like a traditional shooter baffle me. I'd compare this more to that crazy tron world tactics game more than a traditional shooter in a lot of ways. Yeah, its slow and it focuses on other things than running around blasting dudes in the face every second in a half. Maybe it's good or maybe it's bad but it went for something and I'm pretty sure they achieved their goal if nothing else.

Posted by roguehallow

This looks like a pretty interesting concept. Thanks for the QL, dudebots.

Posted by Sammo21

My biggest problem with the beta is spawning and enemies shooting me as soon as I spawn.

@Maginnovision: I've played in several games and none of them have turned into that.
