Vanquish trailer makes Gears of War look like a slow moving old person

When I look at Vanquish I'm reminded of Gears of War. It has third-person shooting. It has covering. It has brutal melee. And it is very much sci-fi influenced. But the speed at which Vanquish moves is something else. Gears is intense, but Vanquish looks intense at an ear-bleeding velocity. If it was a space ship, I'd put money on it winning the Kessel Run in less than 11 parsecs.

Oh, and slam-dunking missiles? Count me in.

    Is it just me or does his suit seem to be a mix between the armour from shadow complex and a transformer?

    looks like gears taking speed while on an acid trip. LOL at the fat guy that trips. looks fun though, i just hope its playable by us westerners.

    Looks great in a lot of areas, except the writing and Voice-over... undoubtedly, they are going to be cheese. P.S. Are fantasy Americas going to include female presidents now that a black one is a reality?

    Reminds me a bit of Dark Void. It wil need better AI and a weightier protagonist.

    This game looks awesome, though I doubt I'd buy it. The only reason I liked Gears so much was because it stayed away from the crazier concepts like bio-suits and hand-held laser weapons.

    OMG many missiles, naugh handle it!
  • Metroidhunter32 - June 7, 2010 2:17 p.m.

    Bloody hell, that looks good.

    Oh man, Bayonetta's of War. That game looks fun and hilarious, "We've got approximately 8 hours to stop that from happening. We will stop that from happening." Vanquish looks superfun.

    Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site[_www. SEEKCOUGAR com_]---a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

    I can't really say that I liked GoW (that's an acronym for gears of war and god of war, dammit!). Killzone 2 actually felt like a 1st person Gears, which was annoying.

    Isn't this just Lost Planet with Mechs instead of Akrid?

    platnium/clover has never let me down can't wait

    I won't lie, I was skeptical at first, but after seeing this trailer I have become somewhat excited. I'm glad it isn't just another space marine shooter... Thank fuck for that.

    Most likely another gem from the brilliant Platinum Games
  • ChipTheExecutioner - June 7, 2010 7:10 p.m.

    not sure why but it reminds me a little of Final Fantasy XIII, in the art direction anyway.

    Anyone else laugh when the guy at the beginning goes: " stop that from happening." "We will stop that from happening."
