Monday Night Combat gameplay vid is like The Running Man meets Team Fortress 2. With bacon

Shares

With all the (deserved) fuss around Limbo, you might have forgotten about Monday Night Combat, Uber Entertainment's upcoming team-based shooter for XBLA. Due out next Wednesday, August the 11th, it blends deep, class-based combat with striking cartoon humour to create a strange hybrid of team deathmatch and tower defense. It also uses bacon as a power-up. Because bacon makes you better at everything.

If you want a proper introduction to exactly why we're excited (and we highly recommend that you take up that opportunity immediately), there's no better place to start than this 15 minute developer walkthrough. It takes in an entire match, and details class abilities, real-time upgrades (each class is massively customisable), ludicrous weaponry, and what look to be some very deep and satisfying gameplay mechanics despite the Saturday morning cartoon looks. After this, we can't wait to get our hands on it. Let us know if you feel the same.

Well?

    Looks okay but is it just me or has this summer of arcade been nowhere near as good as the last couple of the years (Limbo is still awesome)
  • ZenPhoenix - August 4, 2010 4:22 a.m.

    Looks like much more fun than the trailer made it out to be.

    It looks pretty sweet, I may purchase it I just wish it had more variety like the dota's and lol's and hon's of the world

    I was sorta on the fence about this game, but now I'm pretty much sold. BACON!

    It will definitely be my 2nd of the Summer of Arcade downloads, with the other being Limbo, obviously. It should be fun. Now I just gotta figure out which 3rd game I'm getting so I can get the 400 points. Maybe Hydro Thunder. :/

    Hmm....seems like a mix of Transformers over the shoulder gameplay with TF2's cartoony look and then a bit of MW2's title tags. looks like fun, definitely looks worth the 1200 points

    that guy plays with an inverted stick too!
  • TheHolyHandGrenade - August 3, 2010 7:57 p.m.

    first glance: TEAM FORTRESS 2 COPY!!!!!! second glance: hey this looks kinda cool....
  • Evil_AppleJuice - August 3, 2010 7:24 p.m.

    meh. Dunno.
  • Hayseyboy - August 3, 2010 7:11 p.m.

    I'm really excited for this game, Bacon High-fiving Ammo? Awesome.
  • Hurricrane - August 3, 2010 6:08 p.m.

    only 4 maps!?!
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - August 3, 2010 6:03 p.m.

    This game already looks like a ton of fun and if you're like me and have a shitty comp and can't play Team Fortess 2 this looks like a great sub
  • yoyoguy - August 3, 2010 5:17 p.m.

    neat
  • Darkshine34 - August 3, 2010 5:03 p.m.

    i can't wait to play this. it looks like so much fun
  • Wizrai - August 3, 2010 4:11 p.m.

    I'd like to say that this looks way too similar to S4 League... Maybe TF2+S4 instead!
