Strike Suit Zero Released


Born Ready Games' space combat game, Strike Suit Zero, has been released. The game is widely available via digital distribution, including Steam where it's on sale for 20 percent off.

Quote:
In the year 2299, an interstellar war rages on. In a bid to save Earth from destruction, you must take control of the Strike Suit – a revolutionary fighter craft with the ability to transform into a lethal suit of space armor. Immerse yourself in massive fleet battles where your dog-fighting skills will directly affect the fate of the cosmos.

Discover a colorful and vibrant universe, with an epic story where the fate of Earth hangs in the balance and your actions will determine the outcome: preventing Earth’s destruction is your immediate concern but preserving its future is your ultimate goal.

Engage intelligent enemy fighters and take on colossal capital ships, exploiting weak points in their super-structure to blow them apart. Upgrade your ships and customize your weapon load-outs to tailor combat to your tastes. Take advantage of four unique craft, including the Strike Suit, to experience dogfighting action as you’ve never seen it before.

This Is Space Combat Reborn.
Update: Added the launch trailer.

Haven't played it yet, buying it when I get home. If it's anything like Omega Boost, then the answer is "very yes".

Oh shit, for 16 bucks, I don't even care if it's "good" or not. That's a no brainer purchase at that price.

I'll have to give this a whirl.

My system is ready to crunch some serious numbers - just got the SSD stripe going. This looks like it will do nicely.

Why would you do that? Also games don't see a performance boost other than load times with an SSD and no benefit from striping... I assume you're running TRIM compatible firmware for that setup? Using a good hardware Raid controller?

It might be weise to hold off on too much excitement - at least based off this review (3/10)

I would ignore that Eurogamer review. The reviewer just couldnt play the game.

Other sites have given up 7-8 out of 10. Currently we have a user metric critic of 8.6.

Penny Arcade reviewed the game also

If you read that Eurogamer review, read the comments, quite a lot of comments from people who said they read the review then bought the game. They then come back to the review because they completely disagreed with it.

I saw that Richard Cobbett gave SSZ a fairly good review on GameSpy.

I want faster load times honestly - I've been pretty happy w/ the setup & haven't run into any of the performance drops. Yes - TRIM supported & verified w/ Crystaldisk.

I guess it was one of those things that I just wanted to try out. In the long run - this will probably get moved over to my server & setup on a mirror for critical data, but just wanted to mess around a bit.

Do you ever get that "I just wanna fuck around a bit w/ some hardware" thing? It's been a long time since that bug bit my ass.

Well worth $16 for anyone who is remotely a fan of this type of game. Don't forget it's an indie title so it's a little rough around the edges in certain areas but the core game play is so damn fun none of that matters. It's a decent challenge so far for the first two missions I completed. The controls took a few minutes to get used to and I had to remap a handful of keys to my liking but after that it can get intense switching your weapons and dealing with a screen full of targets. I haven't even unlocked the suit yet but I'm having a blast.

I get where you're coming from but if purely for gaming it's unnecessary unless you're using older lower performing drives to get a slight boost for system performance that is usually negligible for normal environments. There is a higher risk for failure and data loss as well while running SSDs striped and from what I hear it cuts a fair chunk from their lifespan. Higher performance while weighing the risk similar to overclocking. I've got two Samsung 840 Pro 250GB with hdds in hot swap bays for mass storage and performance is as good as it gets for gaming and everything else.

~Damn this was meant to be with my former post. Here are some screens then.








It looks good enough at full res but the textures could be a lot better.

I had read that about reducing the lifespan of drive in a stripe config, but they probably aren't going to stay in there too long. TBH, I don't really see any performance difference between just using a single drive or the striped volume. I just kinda wanted to do it & see what the performance difference would be.

Like your setup - they'll likely go into the server as hotswap drives. Thats still running drives that spin. I usually upgrade my gaming system & the server gets my old hardware. I think it's running a dual core E6400... so moving those drives to it would probably help a bit. I run 2k8r2 on it... but really only as a testbed for the stuff I need to play around with at work.

Why cant I change the FOV setting in the options? Is it grayed out for anyone else?

Just checked and it is for me as well. I noticed it is enabled when you turn on multi-monitor.
