View Full Version : Monolith

Hey, what do you guys think about the game company monolith. I like their fresh ideas, but the exectuion of these ideas can be a little weak. I've only played one of there games though (Shogo) so I can't really say much, but the other day I saw it bashed on penny-arcade. What do you guys think about it?

i was glad to hear that they are working on Aliens Vs. Predator 2 =)~~~

shogo's nice....is there anything penny arcade doesn't bash? :p
BUT it DOES have serious flaws. some are gameplay related, like you getting killed by the door or characters getting stuck in the elevator, and the end BOSS doesn't even move if you shoot at a distance....
and the anime-look could have been done better....the player models look wacky, and not like anime, more like penguins....the intro movie has a j-pop song which doesn't go well together with the blood splatter you see in that movie (looks kinda silly)...as for use of blood > lotsa....but it looks funny/stupid....tomato ketchup.
The story however is very nice, even though the ending is rather apdrupt. And even though there are many flaws it's still very nice to play.

I have Get Medieval by them and I enjoy it very much. It is a very good take off on Gauntlet. I think they are an all right company.

thanks Samor. i haven't worked on it for such a long time. i really should. i liked shogo too, but i agree w/ u on all those bugs. it's a pity, the game could have been really great.

I just can't believe it. andre, are those MGS pics on your website from an emu? I've played MGS at least 20 times from start to finish on PSX, Bleem, and computer. Those pics look just as good as my computer version. Which emu did you use to get these amazing graphics?

those shots were taken using epsxe 1.0.1 and petes ogl plugins Adair. They do look really good, if only the sound could be fixed up!

yep...the only noticeable difference between those shots and the pc version is the lack of perspective correction. Otherwise it looks exactly the same. Quite nice :)

Yeah, I recently got rid of my PSX copy in favor of the PC version, but I'm gonna tell my friends that have it to play it on epsxe.
