Izumo Jyuki is the designer who created the original of this and the other mecha from the crazy experiment known as Steel Battalion. There is an amazing book out there of his work called Industrial Divinities...
I also like it. But I don't play it so often, becouse there is not enough gamemodes. It should have a plain basic multiplayer mode too, with ctf and other classic gamemodes to choose from. Don't you think? Otherwise it's awesome.
great stuff i love the concept, ive been digging around in my brain with a shovel for a while now trying to come up with a verry light prototype meck, kinda the dqwn of there creation speak, and this piece inspred me alot just on how bare and flemsy it looked, dont get me wrong i love ur desing im just saying it gave me alot of ideas, its going into my faves.
That is cool. I know the game your talking about is Steel Battalion. I used to play it a while back. It was pretty cool but the controller was a little over the top. I think I would have likeed it better if you could use the regular controller as an optional controller. I had to go and get that big controller every time I wanted to play for an hour. Put it together and hook it up. Then play for an hour. Take it apart and put it up in the closet. Not to sound to lazy but after about 50 times it starts to get to you! haha! Cool game though and it looks like the 360 will have a nice mech game too --> [link]
