Might actually give this a shot, always was really interested in this series but never got into it. You guys ever play it?

Saw this recently. I love this game and have the PS2 version.

A few years ago I was playing it non-stop. Did extreme difficulty and unlocked everything. There's a lot of cool extras and I wonder if they'll include them or do the shitty thing and make them DLC. There were different versions of Jehuty (the main robot), difficulty modes, EX missions which have things like survival, VS, boss battle. Wouldn't put it past Konami. If this stuff is not included, I'm going to go ape shit.

I hope they managed to fix it this time around though, as the HD port was atrocious from what I heard (running at sub 20 fps compared to the ~60 on PS2). Game sounds and looks amazing to play, really interested in it though I hope the price is right otherwise I'll just get the PS2 version myself.

So this is a full remake right? Like graphics and everything? No way it will be as bad as the HD version. I never bought that piece of shit.

ZoE 2 really is a blast to play. I know you'll love it.

I have the HD versions, got them way after they fixed the fps issue with a patch, it's 50-60fps now(patch was for PS3 only).
2 is a massive improvement from 1, 1 wasn't much more than a proof of concept for what would be refined and expanded with 2. Shame that there won't be another, concept art indicated a supernatural fantasy aesthetic for the mechs.  
I think this is a remaster of sorts rather than a full remake,cool that it's getting another chance somehow.

From what I know it's a port again, so just the same HD version that arrived on the PS3 (patches included) with a VR mode shoved in.

Was the PS3 version the special edition? With EU Extreme and whatever?

Took some digging but yes, it has the bonus content only seen in the EU copies so that's pretty sweet!

Japan got that extra content too, at least on PS2. They released a special edition in Japan later which is the one I have.

Looks like this version might be worth grabbing then.

Both of the PS2 ZOE games are two of my favorite action games of all time. Yes even the more repetitive first game: I just love the speed so much, and I like that it has a few interesting wrinkles the 2nd game doesn't, like a world map and some side missions.

I really hope this is a good port. As everyone previously said, the PS3 version was a disaster. :/ Which is a true shame, because ZOE2 hasn't aged a day. The mix between simple but clean visuals, subtle cel-shading (for things like edges and explosions), and animated cutscenes really makes the game hold up over time in a way that few do.

I like the 1st one too, I thought it was a neat experiment for what ZOE2 would refine, such a massive leap in quality. I like that Anubis is the final boss of ZOE1 even though he's unbeatable, great build up for a rad villain.

I really appreciate how ZOE2 has an optional 1v1 fighting mini game, of which you can collect various characters for it in the form of little action figures in NG+. Lots of games back then had extra fighting game modes, like enter the matrix game, urban reign and xenogears.

Zone of the Enders 2 just got a DEMO on PS4, highly recommend it. Game looks gorgeous on a PS4.

So far it looks great, one thing that is hinted at is that there's "an extra for veteran players". They also added a Very Easy mode for ... no-one basically.

Sounds interesting.
If it avoids the PS3/360's framerate issues, I'm in.

I still have the Japanese special edition which included the EU extreme difficulty and I've beaten that but that was years ago. I always wanted to do runs using single subweapons and see how they affect every enemy and boss.

I can't believe this series never continued. Have we discussed this game before Roy? Have you any experience with it?

This demo was my first encounter with it, looked really sweet and cannot imagine Kojima made this. Looks and plays like a dream. Controls took some getting used to though.

Indeed.

I don't care for VR, but I wonder how it's even playable in a game as fast paced as this? What happens during the back/forward flips? Maybe the cockpit has some kind of rotational device to keep you facing forward, or maybe it fully flips the screen like Breakdown.

Wouldn't know, since you can just turn it off - and I did haha! Can't imagine playing that game in VR. Hell they even made a joke video about it at MEGA64:

I never played the originals, they were Kojima games which I avoided like the plague (due to high cutscene amounts). We talked about this before I think.

Poor creature.

I vaguely remember mentioning them to you. I agree with you. Let's discuss them again!

I never bothered much with the first game. I mean, I finished it, but this wasn't until the second game was around which in comparison is so much better it doesn't make sense.

I don't recall many cutscenes. ZOE has conversations in the cockpit that are similar to codecs, as well as 3D and anime cutscenes but nothing extensive.

The modes in ZoE 2 are amazing. Ex missions with various conditions like survival, melee only etc, difficulties, VS mode, and 4 versions of your frame. There's also rankings for the main game.

So much gameplay content here.

And it grieves me on a daily basis!

At least I'm finally getting to Gow so maybe NG could be in the cards after that.

I'll probably be getting this too though after the PS3/360 mess I'll wait until after release and see what everyone says just to be safe.

Hahahahaha! No worries. I am a huge series fan and still haven't finished NG2 on Master Ninja so...yeah. Really curious to hear about your GoW1 adventures.

> ZoE2 Mars
Yeah same, I want to get it day one. But my mind is smart enough to wait if it isn't a disaster launch.

They fixed it:



I already said before it’s fine on ps3 now(360 didn’t receive patches, Roy mentioned patches too). A few areas have frame rate issues but runs 60fps otherwise, can’t say if the ps2 version had these issues.


And Roy no, Kojima produced Zoe1-2, he did not direct or write at all, he just oversaw and assisted the projects. ZOE1 was directed by Noriaki Okamura(his original idea for the PS1 and PC) and written by Noriaki Okamura and Shuyo Murata. ZOE2 was directed by Shuyo Murata(Kojima did appoint him for a different experience) and written by Shuyo Murata, Ryosaku Uedo and Kensuke Yoshitomi. None of this informations is hard to find(guess where?), mind giving credit to the actual creators and not the front man?

Take a deep breath before you post like this Gabe, and don't post it. Remember you're not on Gamefaqs or some shit. Guy makes a mistake, it happens. No need for that type of tone.
