@EvilLucario Thanks for the reminder. I hardly check my personal email. Got mine.

That DxM survey sucks. Didn't even query me for my own thoughts or complaints at the end.

@Ralizah That's what questions 4 & 5 and 7 & 8 are for. (What did you like/what didn't you)

@JackEatsSparrows It asked us to go into detail specifically about what we liked and didn't like regarding things it talked about in the previous question. Not to introduce unaddressed concerns. Although, given the lack of such a section, it's likely better to ignore their instructions and put your concerns there.

@Ralizah That's what I did, haha. My mindset was basically; well, that question was about mechs being cool, so lemme tell ya what isn't cool. Then just copy/pasted the same comments i put in 3/4 to the next boxes. I liked some of the game, but they def need feedback.

I didn't get a survey, I feel left out.

@Lemmy_the_Koopa: OOOOOH. That's what you meant. I'm sorry. That sometimes happens to me too, especially with the AI-corrupted arsenal things.

I love the theme & aesthetic of the game, but the gameplay itself is a bit hard to get a hold of and follow. I've only played the first two missions though, so I'll give myself time to acclimate to it & collect better gear.

Decided to go with a bit of an Evangelion theme, so I decided to make my avatar resemble Misato, but gave her pilot suit & mech the color scheme of Shinji's Eva.

I hope there's another demo for the game's final (or at least near-final) build down the line. I'm still on the fence about this one after reading some of the feedback but also understand that the game is still in development.

Finished up the demo tonight.

It's a bit janky, but pretty decent overall (hopefully it'll be smoothed out a bit by the time it releases). It's very much a game about replaying missions to loot better gear to make you stronger, more durable, and faster.

  • IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • since I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere yet, you use FEMTO to revive fallen ally mechs.
  • On the topic of the demo boss, attacking the legs and body ALL (slowly) drain it's overall pool of HP, rather than being parts that you destroy one by one. Destroying the weak points under it's "belly" and on it's laser cannon simply drain it's HP much faster. Also, every once in awhile Four (the AI thing) will tell you when the boss is at certain damage percentages (25%, 50%, 75%, and 90%), so be listening for that. It was at 75% percent damage after I destroyed the weak points underneath it, so after that I just focused my attacks on it's laser cannon, slowly draining away the rest of it's health while hoping to get lucky destroying the weak spots in that area (it moves around way too much to specifically target them, plus they occasionally retract into the cannon). I managed to only destroy 2 of the 6 weak spots located there, but it eventually went down.

Folks, I'm telling you I had similar reservations about being a sitting duck and movement too slow in the sky and walking/sliding around....here's the thing: Learn to use that boost! You'll be dodging diving and moving very quickly on the ground and in the sky! That video up there is pretty accurate. If you are discounting this game because of that, you're missing out....seriously. They should be explaining that in a WAY more intuitive way in the training.

Here's a thing that helped tie it all together for me. Customize your controls....switch the boost from being on the button, to being PRESS left joystick and put the jump/fly decend on x/y....Seriously....once I did this, man the gameplay became very fast and it frees your right thumb to move and boost at the same time for complex movements and combat. It became VERY fun. Overall I see the need for polish and framerate boosts, but I think this is because it's 1.0 beta on this demo. It pretty much looked like the demos. Menus could be a little more intuitive and having an "equipped" on weapons selected/not selected will save some headaches.

ADJUST those controls....USE THE BOOST, and you'll love it! Dodging/evading movement on the ground and the sky are seriously fun! There were a couple of times it did some VERY cool moves just from using that, and I was like WHOA how did I do that!?

@purpleibby I second that boost function. I was zipping around like Max Sterling in Battloid once I got the hang of boosting. And the gene mods to your Outer can enhance boost, too!

Right on Jack...it's definitely cool....it can enhance sliding around very nicely. Dodging/evading towards and away, left/right with the boost makes it feel like a skilled fight. One thing I thought was neat was going in and out of boost would make the mech do random cool moves....also what's cool is if you select a weapon for each hand you could fire both at the same time(just a little silly thing, but I liked it). Having boost on the left stick frees your right hand thumb for boosting while aiming/moving so you can use it while strafing and with the firing on the trigger buttons you can do some wild stuff.

Thanks for the tip on the upgrade, and this is only the beginning Mech for me without speed boost. I imagine as things go along it's going to get even crazier. I can definitely see this game living up to it's hype. I hope that the full version will be fully flushed out graphically. I see no reason it won't be. the Verson 1.0 on this demo probably tells you where it's at compared to the end version. The art style is definitely cool, and being more complete will bring it together IMO.

I really like the concept of this game and think that it could get quite addictive customising your Arsenal etc. but as it stands, it's absolutely horrible to play. The controls don't feel smooth at all. It feels clunky and slow to move about and I was running out of ammo constantly. Also, using a sword isn't fun because 9 times out of ten, my character hits nothing. Overall, I found the layout of the game to be a confusing mess.

I also don't understand why the developers would put in a frustratingly hard boss in the demo. I did it eventually but it frustrated me so much, Reading a few comments in here, I probably would have had an easier time by going underneath him but it would have been nice for the game to have at least given me a little hint there.

All in all, the demo made me not want to buy the game at all.On the upside, at least I didn't find this out buying the full game.

@Reverandjames, at the beginning of the boss fight (at least the first time I played it) there was a pop up that discussed boss weak points, that had a photo of the weak points on it's underside.

That said, you'll undoubtedly have more chances to loot better gear before the boss in the full game (the demo had 2 E Rank missions & 2 D Rank missions, one of which was the boss, but I doubt there'll only be 2 E Ranks in the full release), and given that you can revive fallen ally mechs, that makes me wonder if there'll be co-op, which could make things easier (I'm more of a single player person myself, though).

@RR529 My bad, I remember the game explaining the weak points but must have missed the photo of the underside weak points.

I'm sure there will, I really wanted to like what I played and the whole point of the demo was for the devs to get the general consensus on the game so hopefully they will improve on a few things.

I'm more of a single player guy myself so adding multiplayer won't do anything for me and I doubt this will be the sort of game my friends will play anyway.

I've tried the demo probably 10 times now and the controls are just not clicking for me. Was really excited for this one but the way the games feels has put me off. I hope they can release another demo closer to release to gauge the changes they've made. The current demo as is unfortunately moved this off my buy list.

So just finished the demo.
Love the visuals and music.
Controlling the arsenal felt fine to me, especially when you incorporate boosting, feels awesome boosting on the ground under an enemy and then taking off.
Not sure if you can remap but dont like descending on d-pad down, thats just awkward, so is aiming a grenade when out of your mech.
My biggest gripe is the out of bounds. A couple of times I got stuck in a structure because the game was pulling me back and I had to quit. Not cool. Just make it a timer and if your not back in bounds then mission failed. Not this tractor beam bs.
But overall I enjoyed it and im glad they are asking for feedback. I mean, the game can only get better, right.

Despite playing the demo a little bit later than most people I still got the survey, so if you're just now getting around to trying it out, still be on the lookout for the survey.
