If anyone can get you into another fine mech (oh how
I've waited to use that pun again!) it's the talented
developers at From Software. Fresh off their incredible
Otogi run, From Software is returning to a genre they
practically invented with their extremely popular
Armored Core series (PSone, PS2).
Japanese have always had a thing for large mechanized
robots primed for war and it appears that Chromehounds
will continue that kick ass tradition. At first I
thought Chromehounds was a robot puppy simulator along
the lines of Nintendogs, but after a quick reality
check and an assurance from everyone here at CCC that
I was in fact, the dumb ass of the day for thinking
that, I came to realize exactly what Chromehounds
was all about...or as we say in Canada "aboot".
know that thanks to the next gen hardware, From Software
will be cranking out photorealistic visuals, although
we're wondering if all of the caucasians in Chromehounds
will still have those huge eyes anime artists are
known for. I don't have eyes that take up half my
face. What the hell is that about? That's freakin'
racist! Anime addicted kids aren't even aware that
they're being made fun of.
that as it may, Chromehounds will support co-op play
and 12 player competitive online modes, a squad based
tactical commander mode, and literally thousands of
upgrade options that will enhance the look and performance
of their individual mechs. If you have been a fan
of From Software and their Armored Core series in
the past, the future is so bright, you're gonna have
to wear shades. Shades big enough to fit on your 200
foot tall mech, that is.
