    That said they've sort of slacked on content for the PC version as well.

    They also dropped the ball on the community dev tools as well (that said coming one month after release). The game could have had a much bigger following if were weren't playing the same 5 or 6 maps forever. One of which was completely broken.

    Numerous devs have been expressing their dislike of Microsoft. Team Meat has been one of the more vocal examples. I know Zeboyd stated that Steam outsold their XBL version in a week or so. Since MNC was designed for consoles, I guess Uber has seen that the PC is where they are making the most money and want to have a game designed from the ground up for it.

    Yeah, I actually asked them about this at PAX East earlier this year, and unfortunately the answer was pretty unsatisfactory

    It was basically "It's hard to make dev tools that people can use without knowledge of UDK"

    So having played about 4 games, this is MNC with more classes and increased game length. Each game was about 30-40 minutes.

    Ehhhhh.

    I'm willing to forgive a lot because beta, but, the games are just way too long. Its like the creep health was drastically increased and experience gain was majorly reduced to make the game longer. So its not really a jump in/jump out game anymore. You've got to have a good block of time to dedicate to it to play more than one game a day.

    How much does that, as well as the new classes, change up the teamwork?

    If you've played a normal MOBA (Dota, LoL, HoN) game, then its either at that level, or just below, as far as teamwork importance.

    If you've got a lame duck on your team, or if they manage to outlevel you at the beginning, its a slow march to defeat.

    More than that, team makeup is even more important because, at this point, I don't think you can switch roles in the middle of a game (Makes sense given the changes, you'd only be gimping yourself).

    Ooh, leveling is a bad sign. This is what separates Devil May Cry from Symphony of the Night. In DMC and MNC, you buy abilities. In SotN, your health and power are going up. I prefer the former over the latter for this sort of game. I hope they take care of the game flow after the beta.

    You still buy the abilities like you did in MNC. Its just they come a lot further apart now, since the process takes longer.

    EDIT: I forgot that MNC skills were bought with money. Yeah, here its you gain a point to spend on one of your abilities or two passives whenever you level.

    Ouch ouch ouch. Stats need to stay fixed (save for bacon) or stats will trump skill.

    Uh, guys, you know you aren't supposed to be talking about the beta, right? I will say that the base concept is very compelling, but the execution so far needs work. Of course thats why we're testing it in the first place :-)

    That is a good point and I would like to see how the game plays after really adjusting to the different focus, so enough out of me.

    Now I want to play some MNC when I get home, despite my current obsession with Skyrim. But my wife also needs attention, and I told a friend I'd play something with him later tonight too! Not enough time in a day!

    Though we're still not supposed to talk about the beta/invitational, Giant Bomb has done a quick look at SMNC that you can check out. If anyone is interested at all in the game, I highly suggest going to the forums and signing up. Its really fun, and we could always use more people to murder play with.

    MNC was one of my favorite XBLA games ever.

    Such a shame microsoft made it difficult for Uber, as I want SMNC sooooooooo badly.

    To censor cries of RUINED FOREV-AH, probably. I know I have some gripes and I love it.

    40 minutes for game length? The dev in the Giant Bomb video said matches were typically 20 minutes which sounded great to me. 40 minutes is actually still on par if not still lower for Dota-like games. I remember playing WC3 Dota matches that could last an hour or two if nobody quit.

    I'm pretty stoked for SMNC as I love this style of game but have gotten a tired of the traditional format. Original MNC was good but suffered the same pitfalls of multiplayer-shooters and I like that this is more stat driven.

    20-30 is the typical match length.
