Rise of the Robots – Continue?

Posted by Luke Brown On September - 8 - 2011

We have seen the future. Robots rise and fight each other. End of line.

Every week on Continue?, we sit down to play a random old school game for 30 minutes. We’re talking NES, SNES, Genesis old here. There is one question we are trying to answer – do we want to stop playing or continue?

    Man…I totally hated this game when I was a kid:) It looked AWESOME, and it had robots, but it plays like complete sh*t and it’s hard to express in videos how sluggish the controls are and how impossible Super Moves are to pull off. Definitely makes for a fun video to watch then! ;)

    Especially when you defeated the Loader through a “Logic Paradox”:)

    Oh, and Nick – “Cyborg” is the right name for the main character. Robot = a machine that can think for itself. Android = is a robot that looks like a man (Gynoid is for females). And Cyborgs = man/machine hybrids. Like a soldier who has an artificial arm because he lost his real one in an explosion or something. I realize that’s really nerdy to bring up, but what can I say? I dig robots.

    Great vid this week! I love it when you guys check out games that are more obscure.

    Oh, and you guys probably don’t wanna hear it, but Acclaim actually made a sequel to this game. Guess they fooled a bunch of kids like me into buying the first one? Anyway, if you want to check it out (for PSX or Saturn), it’s called, “Rise 2: Resurrection”. And it actually has much more responsive controls and, like, 4x as many characters. It’s still nothing special, but at least it’s playable….unlike this first one.
