Yeah,
first again
 
Ooh, a atari remake.
I'm not into anime, but this was interesting enough, Sin and Punishment-ish

This is fucking crazy!

"anime art style"  "rail shooter" 
 
You could not lose my interest any quicker.

Wow...this looks pretty good.  Kind of reminds me of Star Fox

They lost me at "anime".

This is absolutely nothing... nothing, like Yar's Revenge. Might just have well have called it Pitfall! for all the similarities to the original.

Posted by Slaker117

Yep, they totally made a rail shooter.

Posted by 7Force

This looks like Panzer Dragoon... and that make me happy in my pants

Posted by karmakiller

They should have just made the HD remix. This game could have been called anything.

Posted by J12088

Rail shooter...yawn.

Posted by TwoLines

This looks kinda neat. The shield made me happy, it's crazy that they did that.

this looks like a really boring / slow version of paner dragoon orta. Considering how long ago panzer dragoon orta came out, there's really no reason for this one to seem so inferior.

I think he meant re-imagining not re-imaging and I LOVE how the new imagining looks.

Posted by jozzy

Even Ryan has trouble asking 18 mins worth of questions about a rail shooter.

Posted by Metal_Mills

I thought it said Yuri's Revenge.

Posted by fitzoperfecto

I'm excited.  I will definitely play the trial of it first, but I do like rail shooters and they made one.  Hopefully it will be a little bit faster in later levels though.

*Sigh* We have 'reimagined' Tic-Tac-Toe. You can play as either  the righteous 'Captain O' or the dastardly 'Baron Von X'.

What a bunch of nonsense. Also ex-Pandemic and Obsidian? This is already a strong contender for most busted up game ever made.

this game looks challenging

Ouch. Yars' Revenge had an great backstory, it's a pity that they seem to be squandering its potential here. This just doesn't seem like the game they should have made for a reboot.
 
Also, I find these kind of quick looks really awkward D:

Definitely.
 
I don't get much of a Yars' vibe from this... but, I do enjoy me some Panzer Dragoon.
Posted by Underachiever007

Whose revenge?

Posted by PeZ

Looks like a slow Rez. The animation seems really choppy and cheap and the shooting doesn't seem to have much oomph... Oh Atari.

Posted by Palmlykta

make it go faster please?

Posted by ProfessorEss

I dunno, I kinda feel like the shield really is all the "throwback" I need.

Posted by TripMasterMunky

Looks kinda fun. I dig rail shooters like starfox, rez, and panzer, so i might check this out.

I second that.
Posted by Fernie417

As someone who's never played Yar's Revenge, I'm surprised by how good this looks. Really digging the Panzer Dragoon vibe.

Posted by soupbones

Looks kinda slow - and hard mode doesn't look like it steps it up too much.

@Metal_Mills: No comrade premier, it has only just begun.

Wow. What an unimaginative game desing. Everything seems so boring.

Hmm, I'm seeing two Ryans. Weird.

@Abyssfull: Speaking of which, has Ryan Davis, the journalist, ever met Ryan Davis, the singer?
Posted by prestonhedges

eh, this just proves that game designers are incapable of making abstract games now
 
they're going to reimagine the Sentinel as a cover-based third person shooter, just you wait

"You can shoot the hatches."

Posted by Zanny

Looks a lot better to me than I initially thought from watching the Art of Yars Revenge video from a few days ago. 
 
I dunno I might pick it up, though I'm not a big on rails shooter fan.

Edited by Rox360

Seriously, am I going crazy, or were they joking about something like this in one of the old Bombcasts?? Possibly related to the discussions of the Asteroids movie...
 
Edit: I have to say, though, it looks good for what it is. I kinda enjoy the strange syntaxes and names in the dialog. The main character never says "I" or "you". She refers to herself as "this-one" when talking to the "Bar Yargler". I don't know why, but I really like that.

Posted by Cazamalos

i'm suddenly remembering all the weird shitfuck noises the atari game did when my sister played it, that game was crazy, this reboot not so much 
 
i don't know too much about that console generation but i think yar's revenge sold so well is because the originality the game had

Posted by Deathpooky

Who in their right mind a) proposed a Yar's Revenge revival and b) greenlighted said revival.

Posted by Rmack

I dig Rez, Panzer Dragoon, etc., so I'll probably check this out...I just hope it gets more challenging as the game goes on.
