DYSWTDT? Armoured & Dangerous Demo

It's not quite World In Conflict, is it?

In case you were wondering how to identify a slow news day in the world of PC gaming, it’s when you find me posting about a strategy game demo. Armoured And Dangerous is such a thing. It’s a game. It’s a strategy game. I don’t want to understand it. There’s a video of it below. It looks a bit dodge. But it’s super-cheap, and it does have tanks in it.

It’s possibly the boldest use of “picturesque” I’ve ever seen. Also, the last minute is a little disappointing.

I’m not sure that territory is worth fighting for.

    What an ugly game!

    I see what they did there, and I raise you an eyebrow.

    But a tank RPG with differing class roles and special abilities would probably be quite nice. Albeit stupid, but there’s a lot of treadheads out there. Treadheads who love themselves some picturesque battlefields.

      I see this game and raise you one World of Tanks

    • pepper says:

      World of Tanks looks good but has a gameplay that is disappointing if you love armoured warfare.

    Umm… What just happened?

    Where’s the Land Shark Gun?

      My thoughts exactly…I mean: seriously? GUYS? This is beyond fail…they are either computer games “history” illiterate or somewhat stupid…OR BOTH.

    • Tokjos says:

      I remember being annoyed when Lionhead released Fable, forgetting that a game with the same name was released in 1996.

      “Armed and Dangerous” is a pretty old trope. Usually used as part of a police report. “Suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.”

    Not the most realistic tank movement I’ve ever seen..Think I’ll stick with Men of War for now.

    i wish i could advance my career through challenging objectives in campaign.

    Now tanks is well and good but Revenge of the Titans is out – go buy and play that instead!

    I hope that gigantic popup indicator UI style doesn’t catch on. The attack selection icons (I think, anyway) were so big they were almost always partially obscured by picturesque scenery. For a bit there, the player appears to be trying to select a coffee mug with little success.

    War can be ugly. Avoid.
