The lights are on
Saber Interactive (TimeShift, Inversion) announced a
downloadable co-op action romp for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and
PC today. Developed by Saber subsidiary Old School Games, God Mode seeks to
remind us of the joy in mindlessly blasting through the minions of
"It doesn't take itself too seriously,"
Saber Interactive and Old School Games head Matthew Karch told IGN. "It is
lighthearted fun and focuses on arcade style action over a deep story. I think
this makes sense for downloadable games, where players are looking for some
quick, thoughtless action."
Up to four local or online players can team up to
slaughter their way to freedom from the Maze of Hades they've been condemned
to, accompanied by tongue-in-cheek narration in the vein of the bombastic
announcer from just about every multiplayer shooter ever.
Head over to IGN for more screens and details in their exclusive reveal of God Mode, slated to hit electronic retail on PS3,
360, and PC early next year.

I'm very interested in this. I always appreciate a game that doesn't take itself seriously, so I hope it turns out to be good.
Heh, God Mode. I don't think anyone that RPs would touch this with a 20ft poll. Lol JK, looks interesting.
Okay, that actually looks like it could be promising. Granted, people said the same thing of TimeShift and Inversion. At least this time, the devs aren't even trying to go for a serious approach. The art aesthetic looks pleasing and the gameplay looks to be a mix of both games that go under the acronym GOW. If they release a demo, I'll give it a test. Could be fun, if done right.
The concept reminds me a bit of Painkiller, a game which I like to come back to from time to time if I feel like something mindless. Plus, I liked Timeshift, so I'll keep this on the radar.
Well, it looks interesting enough. I could always use another co-op game to play with friends, especially since it has local.
I'm always down for some Co-Op.
The spirit guide sounds like Hedonism Bot.
Wow I'm probably going to buy this. Looks like it'll be great for co-op. If only more games were more focused on co-op...
Haha, looks fun, I'm always down for a good co-op romp.
LOL, Hades is Hell in a toga.
Partial Nudity? Just name the price, bro. lol No, but seriously. This game looks good. How much will it cost? And for some reason, it kind of reminds me of Uncharted 3.

C'mon, you mention Inversion but not Halo: Anniversary? You must hate these guys, Biessener!
