Mercenary Kings: An up to 4 player Action Platformer with a nice graphical style and a *very* addictive system for upgrades, and customization. I'm ~5hrs into the game thusfar and I don't see myself quitting anytime soon. Anyways, a picture is worth a thousand words. And fifteen mintues of video is worth a thousand pictures. Enjoy! . . .review may or may not come later.

Is that a toilet-trombone-machine gun?

I do want to say that if I have to play a 2D shooter with a reload mechanic, thank god it has the active reload system from Gears of War.  That makes reloading fun!

I'm doing - or at least getting a start on - a playthrough of Mercenary Kings for my channel.

Playlist:

So far up to 7 vids, rank 4 missions. I've been having a blast with it and avoiding any farming-sort of activity (since that sort of thing tends to be less fun to watch) at least for a while. Anyway, enjoy!

My let's play is far from complete,  but I just got done with the last of the "required" story missions in the campaign for Merc Kings. Or at least, what's available of it. The last 3 ranks out of 10 are not yet complete and/or released in the alpha.

Verdict: This game is *awesome*. That said, while the difficulty of the game definitely increases, the style of the game does not change significantly from the very beginning. If you aren't enjoying your first hour or two of gameplay, you're not likely to enjoy the next 20.

Steam tells me I've logged 21 hours into this game. And since 4-5 of those are for my Let's Play playthrough, that puts the gametime to clear the game at about 15hours.

I didn't really bother with farming or trying to go "collecting" with the crafting system. Yet. Honestly, I'm kinda keen to do that, which leaves loads and loads of game life left. Not to mention all the optional extra missions I haven't gone back and completed.

Holy SHIT -- this game is in the Humble Bundle!!!

https://www.humblebundle.com/

If anyone picks this up I will multiplay the SHIT out of it with them :). This game is awesome. If you want to see what the game looks like, check out the footage in any of the youtube vids I put up before -- or just the link for the playlist which is like 7 vids long.

 

Let me know if y'all wanna game ;). Would love an excuse to get back into this game.
