    Downloading it at the moment. Will give impressions in a while.

    If the game is as good as the hype, then we should arrange a game night. [​IMG]

    Haven't been able to connect to an online game yet (just bought it the moment it was released online, so gotta wait for more people to catch on), but from the single player campaigns so far, it's pretty fun. VERY team oriented.

    Basically you can play from many different classes by wearing different hats, you can even wear a defeated opponents' hat to change right in the middle of a fight. The worker class harvests materials to repair bases and fortresses, and even perform upgrades to class bases so you can get new weapons.

    Just a quick tip, I'd recommend focusing on upgrading the worker class first, as he earns a bomb weapon that can hurt groups of enemies (which is VERY useful).

    All in all, I can see this game providing endless hours of fun. Now to just arrange a game night. [​IMG]

    From what I have heard, you have to kidnap a fat princess. What's up with that?!

    Also, I'll need to wait a while before I make another purchase on the PSN Store.

    How much is it, and is it anything like Castle Crashers? And how many players is it up to online?

    It's $15 usd, I'm buying it in a few minutes. PSN id is Sephi1n6 if anyone cares.

    also I believe it's up to 16 players on each team

    Bought and playing now. Fucking ace online game, just wish I had more friends to play with.
    When your team doesn't work as a team, you get slaughtered.

    btw PSN is BearEggs if anyone wants to add

    i've heard a lot about this game, not sure if I believe the hype or not. the vids i've seen make it look fun, but $15 is a bit much right now...
    i'm trying to figure out how this actually plays, and what genre you would define it as, but I can't really pin it down. I wish they had a demo.

    I'd classify it as a multiplayer hack n' slash platformer.

    For me, it was worth the $15. As I'm not really much for modern multiplayer FPS games (they've strayed into too many production values and flair instead of the classic frenetic gameplay like Doom, Duke Nukem or Painkiller, but I digress) so this fills my void of a multiplayer game that I'll be playing often.

    Oh yeah, and if you wanna good laugh... Check out 'Who's Your Daddy' in the option menu. [​IMG]

    Is that the credit screen where you play as death? I stumbled upon that after not being able to join an online game and started searching through the menus. Pretty fun, I think this game is worth it. Like the other Santa Monica Production games (Pixeljunk etc), it's just FUN!

    Played some more.

    Only managed to get into ONE online game (out of so many attempts). Tried to start my own, and after 5 minutes into it I realized that I was playing with bots (no names/IDs over other characters' heads). Oh well, I netted a couple easy trophies at least.

    Getting sick of playing against bots, supposedly the mage is more powerful than needs be so hopefully Santa Monica fixes balancing issues along with the connection problems QUICK.

    Blah, I can't make purchases in PSN due to my country, means I can't buy that game (I got recommendations from bleskies).

    Anyone would give a share to me? [​IMG]

    Oh gee, it lookd like a pretty childish game at first, but I saw some gameplay videos, and I saw a whole bunch of blood splattering on the ground, haha. But it looks fun nonetheless.

    Completed the Single player Campaign and played a few matches online, pretty fun stuff [​IMG] Shame you can only upgrade your classes once though.
