This looks really cool.

I mean putting "battle" in your video game title is right up there with "storm" as one of the more generic naming conventions ever.

continuing the Borderlands pattern of ear-rendingly obnoxious characters, I see

That was totally what I thought this video was for until I played it.

Reminds me a lot of Brink. I'm still unsure what this game is... Also is there asymetric versus modes?

Posted by Maxszy

It looks fun. That being said, there are already (or going to be) numerous other options out there that do this same thing.

I feel too many companies have jumped on this "third/first person moba" like train and they are all running together to look the same.

I assume you mean Brink which I also feel this takes a lot from. Basically Borderlands/Brink?

And the Blizzard one, whatever it's called. It's like everyone's got their moba, card game, and TF2 clone.

It's all so confusing but probably because it's just as uninteresting to me. Gotta cover those bases though I guess.

Is anyone else hearing the shooting sound Sparx the dragonfly makes from Year of the Dragon?

2 years ago I was amazed at how slowly graphical fidelity was progressing.

Now I'm amazed at how quickly it's regressing.

@abara: But it's so zany and 'random'. /s

Obnoxious characters, flimsy world-building that has all the makings of a SyFy Original (at least if it's the last habitable system in the universe, we shouldn't have to worry about too many sequels), a la mode low poly/simple texturing visual-style-on-a-budget, and yet more generic co-op shooting gameplay mechanics. Coupled with the negative experience I had of Borderlands, thiiink I'll pass.

Posted by Spitznock

Every single time I hear this mentioned, I think it's the Blizzard thing. With names like "Battleborn" and "Overwatch" though, how can you really blame me...

Posted by ADAMWD

Now this is what I call a hobby grade shooter.

I can't listen to this guy for more than three minutes and twenty five seconds. :(

This smells too much of borderlands... If I want more of that I would just play those again...

Posted by Subjugation

This game gives me serious Borderlands vibes.

@abara:

Claptrap alone makes me want to shove a Q-Tip through my ears like that one scene with the deaf kid in Freddy's Dead.

Edited by heatDrive88

Is it just me or are every single one of these games EXACTLY the same generic thing? I mean, with a name like "Battleborn", it doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Edited by buzz_clik

Funniest thing about this comments section? So many people saying exactly the same thing as each other about how the game title sounds exactly like other game titles.

That would suggest a consensus amongst the opinions of those posting in the comments section... Game titles sounding exactly the same is not consensus, it's boring generic uninspiring and dull...

See the difference ?

Posted by buzz_clik

@zemadhatter: Oh relax, I'm not saying they're wrong – I totally agree with the sentiment regarding the banal title – but I'm just pointing out that people having the same wording to their thoughts amuses me. Y'know, humour! S'fun!

Feeling my age. Until I read further comments I assumed Grizzly meant Battlespire...

Battle Storm: Heros of Eternity

Posted by ButteredToast

It's so rare for me to be turned off by an aesthetic so quickly.

Posted by rtoast

@log_in_lain: dude, i feel like a new battlespire would be a better coop experience than this :/

Posted by soimadeanaccount

Looks a little too busy with all the effects and flashes.

Posted by Strathy

Is this narrated by Mark Hamill doing the Joker?

Also this looks terrible.

Posted by Log_In_Lain

@rtoast: I'd rather not have to go back to direct modem co-op, but I do agree with the similar experience to being stuck in a trash compactor.

Posted by Grixxel

Looks boring. Maybe the multiplayer is where it's at.

Posted by steveurkel

saw gearbox level

turned it off

sorry, fool me onec SHAME ON ME, fool me twice SHAME ON YOU fuck gfearbox has released some of the WORST Games ever and we continue to shower them with praise and borderlands is just a terrible IP. I come from the quake and doom days, and half life and on were essentially the downfall of amazing online play for shooters. I'm sorry, can't compare TF 2 to QWTF, in any universe, you can try for a hundred hours and the original players of quake world team fortress will smirk at you and say "You missed out on the best days of gaming, online gaming at its finest". Whatever, the point is borderlands = bad, aliens = bad, duke nukem = bad bad bad I waited 13 or 14 or 15 years for this??? Everything gearbox touches turns to poison! I would love to see them succeed, I thought that opposing forces was great even though I did not like half life I appreciated Oh wow they made TONY HAWK PRO SKATER 3? Congratulations, ONE good accomplishment. The company does not know what the players want, and it is whatever, think about the lies we have been subjected to, yet we eat this alive.

Where is my Quake 5 ARENA?

Posted by pause422

Looks about what I expected, complete and total shit. Overwatch is all I want out of this 'genre', this game doesn't appear to come close, apart form having more confirmed characters at launch, and that shows nothing. Especially if they are all are boring as I've seen the ones so far

I feel the time of GearBox making good games is definitely at a close, and has been for a while.

Posted by Osiris

The voice actor is overdoing it. Verry annoying. The artstyle seems off, don't know what it is. I don't like it.

Posted by geirr

Ehh this looks alright. Will definitely check it out with my wife.

Tiny Tina with 4 demonic arms and dark magic sounds good in theory.

Posted by Jarno

At close quarters it turns into an incomprehensible mess, and the weapon models are so big you just about need a second screen for them.
