I thought this was tower defense.

EDIT: alright the trailer makes it fairly clear. Not used to this snappy and dull judgments from Patrick.

So... like sanctum.. but moar generic?.. well at least the rest of the games they showed looked interesting .. ish

@vierastalo... tbh I'm with patrick on this.. it does looks sorely lacking in originality or any sort of personality.

Nothing gets me excited like an android based Gears clone.

Edit: I misspelled apathetic.

The Sanctum guys must be pissed.

Did this thing ship today or am I confused about this whole bonanza?

You gotta start somewhere I guess.

They´re probably busy counting all the money Goat Simulator is making them.

@tinygrasshopper: I think they would be more pissed if they made Goat Life 2014.

sigh.

April Fools, right? Anyone????

It's a third-person shooter that we've seen the likes of many times before, though.

I was going to be like come on keep an open mind! then... I watched the trailer...okay yeah I agree looks very generic.

"moar"

Looks like bung.

It looks like they photoshopped the player's character into a bunch of different backgrounds. The level is moving around the character, not the character moving through the level.

Yeah, super generic shooter. If Amazon wants to impress, I think that they'd be better served not making lesser clones of an over produced genre that the "too expensive" guys are doing better. Granted this isn't a games first device and is basically a Roku with an Ouya strapped in, but this isn't a great first impression.

Posted by jiggajoe14

Well that didn't really grab my attention in any meaningful way.

Posted by Abendlaender

I really like the sound effect at 0:17-0:18. Makes me think of Jet Force Gemini on the N64.

Posted by thefriend

All of the amazon games looks really poorly produced. Were most of the devs in 2d beforehand or something?

You mean they didn't make this? Sure looks like Sanctum, for a different platform. It has to be the same devs right? I know many mobile games are clones, but surely not the premiere launch from Amazon.

Posted by Overbite

Looks like a phone game.

Posted by nukesniper

The music in this is really huge and epic for what it actually looks like in action. Sanctum looks better or I remember it better.

Note: Favorite part is the constant "Look at that thing way over there" that they were doing. I don't know what that suggests beyond a scope that probably isn't there.

That armor somehow reminds me of XCOM.

I'll Horde Mode You!

I'd play it.

Edited by suicidepacmen

thought that title read 'Sub-Zero" at first. Am now doubly disappointed.

edit: and after watching the trailer, tripply.

If this 99$ box is more or as powerful as the Wii U (which probably isn't the case), Nintendo needs to do something.

They need to do something anyway, but this is another potentially big player.

This is the next Halo!

This feels like something we will talk about in a couple of years and be like "Hey remember when Amazon had a console and a game studio? That was crazy wasn't it?" and then we put on our Oculus Rift 2.

Even if it was as powerful, what's your reasoning on it being a threat to the Wii U? I doubt many people in the market for a Wii U are buying it for multi-platform games or simply because it's the cheapest HD console at the moment. It will continue to have the same primary strengths it has right now even in the presence of another console with the same hardware performance - namely Nintendo first party titles and the novelty of the gamepad.

Regardless of the Wii U's current (poor) health state, I doubt this would have any effect on it even if could attain the same level of graphics.

It's a phone CPU and GPU, nobody should have really high expectations of it. Where it's competitive is that the games are cheap. It'd be a cool platform to see simple 4 player party games on, although the controller is kinda expensive for the platform ($40)

Posted by Dasdude

Hmm, third-person Sanctum with really shitty graphics... I hope this isn't the best AGS has to offer.

Posted by Reedster

Mass Effect???

Edited by Marokai

@cakebomb: I believe on Gaf there are some sort of GPU/CPU graphs being circulated that have more or less determined this device has roughly the power of the Vita, for what it's worth.

Posted by OriginalYellow

If this platform is being targeted at the type of people at GB then it would seem fairly obvious to anyone that this game missed its mark. It kind if looks and moves like a mobile game, maybe prettied up a little.

I swear more time went into making the music then it did with the game.

Posted by madmax0412

I'm guessing there will be in-app purchases as well.

I loooove that business model. </s>

Posted by Shtinky

Sony needs to make the Vita TV have the same media functionality and they've won the cheap console war.

Posted by JermainJuniorMartinez

My Ten year old and his friends would love this game. If it was not for the fact he has a PS3 I could see buying this game and console.

"HEY REMEMBER HALO PEOPLE LOVED THAT GAME"

"RIGHT SO LET'S MAKE ONE OF THOSE"
