Robots In De Skies: Strike Suit Zero

By John Walker on August 30th, 2012.

PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEWPEWPEW!

It seems I’m going to have to live until 2299 to get to be a Transformer. Right now I’m limited to shouting “KEE KOO KAA KER CHAAA!” and waving my arms around, and while it looks bloody amazing, it’s not quite the same. That’s when Strike Suit Zero says we’ll have colonised space, but also gone and made the silly mistake of having a war. And now it’s up to me, apparently, to save Earth. Again?!

Sizing Up: Strike Suit Zero Preview

By RPS on October 28th, 2011.

Suits, striking!
RPS chum Paul Dean has been suited up for a look at Strike Suit Zero. What follows is his report. The game is set to be released on PC next summer.

I’ve never been very into the giant mecha thing and my enjoyment of the genre is mostly limited to the deconstructivist, apocalyptic, existential angsting (no, really) that is Neon Genesis Evangelion. However, if you want your giant robots with less clinical depression, Judeo-Christian symbology or Freudian themes, then doublesix’s Strike Suit Zero might be more to your taste. Actually, you can probably still keep the big Freudian weapons.

Hands On: All Zombies Must Die

By RPS on October 27th, 2011.

Zombies, dying.
RPS chum Paul Dean has been getting his (very much alive) hands on All Zombies Must Die. What follows is his report. The game is set to be released on PC in December.

It’s nonsense, of course. Zombies are, by definition, dead already. If they weren’t dead then they wouldn’t be zombies. Still, I have no time for sympathy and a perfectly practical solution to every zombie outbreak is invariably the very liberal use of force.

Might Suit Meer-o: Strike Suit Zero

By Jim Rossignol on August 9th, 2011.


You see what I was going for in that headline, right? Alec likes Transformers, and space stuff? And shooting? Right? Okay, well, anyway, the chaps at DoubleSix games send word that their next game is Strike Suit Zero. It’s a space shooter in which you fly some kind of transforming space battle thingum, which is called a Strike Suit. DoubleSix claim this means “ludicrous firepower and awesome abilities.” Their hyperbole is backed up with a secondary steel fist of space-features: “Strike Suit Zero features a dazzling art style, high-speed zero gravity vehicular combat, branching-mission structure, ship designs from renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion) and music from award-winning sound designer Paul Ruskay (Homeworld).”

THEREFORE: SPACE-BIFF! The game is set to arrive in the “first quarter” of 2012. Cinematic teaser trailer below. (Cinematic, in this instance, being a synonym for “pointless”. Shame.)

“Buzz The Tower”: Top Gun Announced

By Jim Rossignol on May 21st, 2010.

Will the game feature Iceman on a highway to Maverick's dangerzone?
DoubleSix and Paramount Digital have announced a Top Gun game. DoubleSix say: “We’ve all been hard at work on this for a good while and at its core the game is an arcade flight shooter in the same vein as Ace Combat and HAWX (though much faster and more visceral). Naturally, we’ll be talking about the game in the oncoming weeks and maybe even showing our suitably l33t skillz to boot.” Apparently the original screenwriter, Jack Epps Jr, has been involved to expand the universe, but I’ve got the feeling he’s going to struggle to top the particular ambiance of his original work…
