I love the painterly, unfinished look of this piece. You don't often see that kind of effect on mecha, and it really works well here. There's detail where it needs to be, and you've captured the lighting nicely, too.
That opening video has always been one of my faves out of all the AC openings... An this mecha truly does it honor! Sweet pic man, an that rifle reminds me of the Karasawa.... WHY DID THEY NERF IT IN THE LAST FEW GAMES!?!?!?
yeah thats right.... i knew the gameplay and graphics from the earlier versions and after watching that trailer i somehow knew that this new game wouldnt be different. of course the graphics get better but its the same shoot&hack&slay type of game. its just too ARCADE like. thats what i hate the most. they should bring out a nice mixture of action and simulation! like they did with steel bataillion for example. imagine your comtrols being jammed! your arm damaged so you eject it your screen camera flickering and some cool infrared view modes!!! THAT would make an awesome mecha game!
oh and when i see the the boxy MECHWARRIOR robots i get the shivers
