Played it: Zone of the Enders: HD Edition

A game about giant robots flying around an orbital space colony and beating one another up, Zone of the Enders offers shallow but entertaining gameplay and a smattering of those offbeat elements you’d expect from Hideo Kojima (unfairly best known for lengthy cut scenes, which are few on the ground here).

I loved the environments in this thing, soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed both the simplistic bludgeoning of mechanical mooks and the somewhat more demanding boss fights. My only real complaints are that, of the large number of weapons you acquire, only a handful are actually any use, and the whole thing ends pretty abruptly.
