    "Enter into intergalactic warfare utilizing overpowered weapons and stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind."

    "HELLDIVERS™ is a top-down squad shooter set in a dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy. As part of the elite unit called the HELLDIVERS, players must work together to protect Super Earth and defeat the enemies of mankind in an intense intergalactic war. Coming exclusively to PS4™, PS3™, and PS Vita systems on March 3rd, 2015, HELLDIVERS™ features cross-play and cross-save."

    So, anyone else interested in this game? I'm gonna be picking it up personally. From the videos that I've watched it's pretty hardcore. Friendly fire is always on and it cannot be turned off, at least as far as I know and apparently the missions are pretty damn tough. Looks like there's a lot of upgrades and some customization in terms of your "loadout" as well. Graphics look pretty good too.

    Would you like to know more?

    Online co-op with cross play? Yes please. Should make for a pretty sizable online community to troll to enjoy the game with.

    Anyways, if you are on the fence about whether or not to pick this up, just watch this video.


    ^Not actual gameplay.

    Are you doing your part?

    I'm doing my part! And remember, the only good bug is a dead bug!






    Okay okay.... Here's an actual Helldivers video.

    Kyle, as I was Plat'ing SAO I went to watch videos to see what Multiplayer for SAO was going to be like... so I came across Imsohappy77's video where he just ran around at level 101 and the entire video was him and his friend getting OWNed by level 120 mobs in the hollow area. It was not pretty :p

    This game reminds me of Starship Troopers for some reason. I like Arrowhead's sense of humour. Hopefully the next thing on their list will be to port Magicka to the Vita. Yes, I'm almost sure of it.

    The game looks really sleek. Wonder what the price is? I want it as early as possible before the online-coop dies out but I am very limited on funding lol.

    Btw, it's really fun watching people getting owned in games lol. Great video, Tyler.

    It's coming this Tuesday on the NA store I believe for $17.99. I believe the "Spring Fever" thing on the homepage should tell you exactly when and price.

    Faaaaaack.

    That's bigger than I was expecting. I may have to delete something to make some room.

    Nice video, the game looks pretty great. I hope the online community holds up for a while. I might not get this at launch as I'm pretty busy at the moment but it look's good and would definitely like to check it out in Summer when I have more time.

    Is there actually a good sense of story and progression or is it just fighting more and more crazy enemies with more and more crazy guns?

    Also I found this on another Vita forum:

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1002814

    As suggested on the other forum, may be worth waiting for a patch to sort some of these problems out. Pity as this game looks great but hopefully these issues will get fixed soon.

    Has anyone that's played the game experienced any problems?

    Hmmm.. That's a bit worrying. The graphics thing is a bummer but I already knew that and it's to be expected really. The framerate thing though.... That worries me. I was really pumped for this game since it looks like a lot of fun, but if it's going to have frame rate issues right off the bat then I'm going to be extremely disappointed.

    I'll still probably get it today and just see how it goes though.

    I'm really disappointed hearing about the framerate issues. I was going to buy it today.

    Tyler has been playing this for the best part of a week, streamed and recorded a bunch as well as played with other people. He calls bullshit on most of that., obviously his opinion.

    Has he played with other people in his games?

    Not like I'm trying to doubt you or him, I'm just curious. I will still be getting the game today regardless just to see for myself either way tbh, but like I said, just curious.

    Also, I could imagine that the frame rates the guy mentioned could have also been due to internet lag as well. I know when I played ROA at times, when someone with a not so good connection joined, the games FPS seemed like it would come to a crawl.

    Yeah I noticed he didn't seem to pick up on any of this whilst he was playing so maybe it's not an issue.

    I didn't mean to put anyone off, just thought I'd let people know. Hopefully this isn't the case like Tyler says and it plays great from day one.

    Nvm. I re-read your post and see you said he played with others.

    Good to know he didn't have any issues.

    I'm still getting the game either way but was curious.
