    Hey guys! I discovered that Square/Enix is making another Front Mission game! Cept this time instead of being the commander of a squad of their Mechs, aka Wanzers, you're gonna be the pilot of them. The game will still provide Wanzer customization.

    Here's a video of the announcement trailer.

    Video..y?

    I'm very mixed about this. One the one hand, I wish we were getting a traditional FM game on the new consoles (Since we didn't get 5 or Online :(  ) however, i'm happy just to get anything new Front Mission related.

    I coullllddd be good, but i'm always weary when a franchise takes it in completely different directions.

    It's coming to 360, I'm very happy to hear this, and hoping it doesn't suck. I wasn't too thrilled with the latest armored core so I'm hoping this makes up for it.

    I was playing FM on the DS with my nephew, and he had to read the tutorial to him, and I kept busting up when I said "Wanzer"

    Hey guys! Found me a new trailer for Front Mission: Evolved, and its a pertty wicked good one too. The people in the game talk like they're... people! Gasp, weird isnt it? Not to bash, but a lotta japenese ported games with english dialogue sounds like such cheese *cough*Ace Combat *cough*!

    I do have some doubts about the game in of itself though, last time I saw gameplay for it, it looked like a bland version of Armored Core 4, which, Armored Core 4 (to me) was bland already.

    Anyways, heres the vid.

    But Armor Core is an action game and Front Mission is strategy, so it should look kinda bland in comparison :)

    Front Mission Evolved (this upcoming game) is an action title where we get to pilot the Wanzers, instead of commanding them.

    You're smoking crazy! That's awsome (if pulled off good, thats the skeptic part Im on). I know Front Mission is signature for it's strategy and mech customization, but now we get to pilot them and be down in the suck, with the same customization the previous games provide. Might sound like a Armored Core ripoff in that sense, but if thats the case, then I can bitch that Armored Core is a rip off of Earth Siege.

    AC doesn't play anything like Earth Siege. If anything, AC is more like Virtual On in that it is more arcade in the controls and combat. Front Mission is more like Heavy Gear in style and combat.

    Shhhhhhhhhh!!!

    By the way, Heavy Gear reference for the win, I wish they would remake it for current gen systems. I'd make it play like a 3rd person shooter of sorts, with a gunplay mechanic like Gears of War.

    I'm kidding. It's not like I haven't played Final Fantasy games that weren't RPGs :D
