In Cruzon, children are born with the ability to control quartz. This power allows them to levitate simple objects - or control enormous and complex mobile battle suits called Golems. But when an ancient Golem is discovered during the height of a brutal war, a young king and his beautiful queen turn to Rygart Arrow. Though an "un-sorcerer," Rygart can miraculously pilot this ancient and powerful weapon. But in war, school friends can turn into bitter enemies and allies have suspicious motives.
Meitori24 May at 10:33 It really gets pretty dull after a couple of hours.
Meitori24 May at 10:32 @Lurch, It's really nothing more than insulting, particularly RE4 onward it was just a case of this is the bad guy, eliminate him in one game (worked with Umbrella after all). Let's kill some innocents so you won't mind killing everyone else here is a really stupid story basis.
Lurch24 May at 10:27 @Meitori - agreed. It just seems lazy (and perhaps insulting to gamer's) that devs and publishers can't create a more complex enemy. This is a whole other debate, but I can't think of a single action/shooter game in which you don't observe your antagonist executing civilians or unarmed soldiers within minutes of starting the game. The more I see it, the more I'm finding it distasteful.
Meitori24 May at 10:19 @Lurch, the entire terrorist side of things has become a bit stupid in games. Resident Evil 4 and onward pretty much just incorporated it badly, and Dead Space 3 went the same silly route.
Lurch24 May at 10:15 @Tea - it was a sudden change from sinister background force to outright terrorists but Earth could prove a great location. Level design was another concern of mine tho - DS1 and 2 felt like real-ish locations converted into shooting galleries. DS3 felt too much like shooting galleries dressed up as locations. Hope they get the balance back in subsequent games.
Tea24 May at 9:29 That I agree with, wasnt expecting them to go that direction but religious zealots tend to condone terrorist type activity. It might more sense if dead space 4 takes place on earth after the events in awakening. I want to what happens between earth gov and unitologists now
Lurch24 May at 9:23 Not yet, but I decided to check out a condensed playthrough on Youtube. It was certainly an improvement and I liked the more traditional ending but still some damage has been done to the characters and universe they created in DS1,2 and the books,comics. I just found the Unitologists progression to terrorists a shame.
