Default Codename S.T.E.A.M. (Not Metroid or Majora's Mask 3D)





It's a Valkyria Chronicles-esque strategy game starring ABRAHAM LINCOLN and LOVECRAFT ALIENS.

Excited?

Looks promising. I hope Nintendo releases a demo for it like they did for Fire Emblem: Awakening a few weeks prior to its release.

I don't know how people saw the words "New IP" and thought of a new metroid or a MM3D.....the logic is real...

We knew there was a 3DS conference about a new game long before E3.

We didn't find out it was a New IP until later.

Way better than a new IP, I cannot wait. Plus, they kinda indirectly confirmed that they are working with Advance Wars and Fire Emblem too. I don't like the main character though.

A game with Abraham Lincoln in it? Sounds a bit strange, but intriguing, nonetheless. I'll consider getting it when it is finally released.

Here's the Nintendo Treehouse Live @ E3 Discussion for the game:



My initial thoughts:

...So, if this is about Abraham Lincoln forming a "S.T.E.A.M. team" (lol), then why does the game take place in London? ...Eh, I'm sure it'll be explained in the game itself. ...Oh gosh, what if Lincoln's playable in this game, that would be so badass!!!

Also, not to be nitpicky, but isn't "revealing the name of a character/creature/etc." more of a manga thing then an American comic book thing? Then again, I don't read that many American comics, so who knows, maybe whenever Spider-Man gets a new adversary there's an info-box right underneath him/her explaining who he/she is and what his/her powers are.

...That being said, seeing them name-drop Jack Kirby and Bruce Timm like that really put a smile on my face!

As for the gameplay itself... I'll be honest, I'm not much for strategy games; not because I don't like them, I just suck at strategy games. This really looks appealing though, and I appreciate the genuine affection the developers have for the heavy American influences in this game. It will definitely be something I'll keep an eye out for!

Also, Reggie Fils-Amie talks about the game, and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.'s introduction at the developer roundtable:

I wonder if that means the main villains will include John Wilkes Booth, Jefferson Davis, the Wicked Witch of the West, etc., etc. ^^

Nonetheless, the gameplay looks interesting. The graphics look so-so but I am sure the final product will look better on the 3DS (it will likely be enhanced for the New 3DS as well).

I'm really not sure what to say about this game. It looks slightly fun, but also weird... Like, one of those lame cheap games.

Hold it!

Would you specify what you mean by 'lame cheap' and how it applies to this game?

A demo for this game has been released for you lucky Europeans.

UPDATE: It is also available on the NA eShop!

Kudos to Nintendo for releasing a demo for a game well before its release.

Yeah, that's my main gripe. It wouldn't be as bad if not for the fact that it feels as if nothing is happening.


3D is really good and the presentation/UI is pretty cool. I'm not very good at it though, but I think I'll keep at it because it blends actual movement and strategy really well. Unlike most strategy games I've tried to play it doesn't just feel like I'm interacting with an operating system. Can't quite see me picking it up yet though.

I'm playing the game right now,and my goodnes it's fun. I expected it to be good, but seriously, it really is fun to play. The graphics look decent, the strategic elements are good, the setting is wow, simply wow, and the characters are... uniiiiique(?), in their own way, I guess... Downsided: enemies turn take long, I hope they are sped up, and it's kinda easy. Though it has potential.

Glad to see Nintendo is trying to promote the game (and mentioning the fact that there is a free demo of it on the eShop), even if this ad will only appear online.

Awesome to see Honest Abe in a mech as well. I would be cute if the game had George McClellan and John Wilkes Booth as allies of the enemy invaders.

Nothing against 'Muricah, but I think I just threw up in my mouth a little after watching that trailer....

This game isn't for me.

Honestly, what is your damage?

This post is so unnecessary.

If an over-the-top, tongue in cheek parody of the USA offends you THAT much, then don't even bother coming in this thread.

I can critisize the game's story if I want to.

Had decently high hopes for this game but it just makes me want another Advance Wars. They're trying too hard with this one.

"this game makes me throw up" is not a criticism.

If someone had said that about the PSV in the vita thread, they would have already be infracted or possibly banned.

I said "that trailer" <.< And I thought the Vita thread was a special case.

Well I remember you banning people for more silly things like in that feminism thread, or posting E3 "spoilers" which the whole chatbox was doing but only 1 person got banned.

Anyway to not be completely off-topic, main thing turning me off from this game is that the steam tanks run dry way to fast, so on average you'll only be able to move like 3 squares and then you have to sit through an Enemy turn which is like a minute of nothing happening..

Played the demo.

-Manages to pull off the comic book aesthetic pretty well. Kind of like W101.
-The enemy turn takes too long. Hopefully, the full game includes a fast-forward feature.
-It's actually pretty challenging (for me at least.)
-It's definitely different than the other tactics games Nintendo has made. (Apparently it's similar to Valkyria Chronicles which I've been meaning to pick up)
-Overall. Pretty fun/challenging. I'll definitely be picking it up eventually.

No, it's not a special case? Pretty sure a troll post is still a troll post regardless of where it's at.

And those events that have nothing to do with your rude post? (Harassment, trolling, spam, and sexism are not "silly" reasons for banning people anyway.)

Guess who's voicing Abe Lincoln.

At least this means that if he says anything negative towards my characters I can shout "Shut up, Wesley!" in response.

Here are some reviews:

Gamespot: 4/10
Destructoid: 6.5/10

Not looking too good so far.

Additional Reviews: Nintendolife: 8/10

Gamespot is trash. And it seems like their score is an outlier anyway.

I trust Destructoid more than most other gaming sites since they tend not to inflate their scores. (A 5 is average) The criticisms in the Destructoid review were valid but not enough to turn me away.

Other reviews have come in at it's getting a lot of scores in the B, 8/10, 4/5 range.

Since posting, I have noticed more positive reviews of the game as well. I had a feeling the game would lead to divisive opinions, particularly with regards to the camera views (can't see the entire map unless you have a party member standing on a high platform) as well as the enemy turn load times (which hopefully Nintendo can fix with a patch).

I have been wary of Gamespot reviews myself but I still post them since a lot of people seem to take them seriously (like when they awarded Bayonetta 2 a 10/10). I definitely prefer Destructoid although their review is rather short. Nintendolife's review is more comprehensive and delves into the multiplayer aspects of the game.

Picked up my Majora's mask pin today (early) for my Codename Steam preorder. This must have been a desperate attempt to get more people to pre-order just for the pin.

Here's what the Pin looks like: http://imgur.com/gallery/nrNao/new
