Drone Tactics is actually pretty exciting

We're pretty sure Atlus means "drone" in the "worker insect" sense, not in the "monotony" sense. If Drone Tactics was really boring, Atlus wouldn't be calling attention to it right there in the title. There's little chance of boredom here anyway! The day we get bored of giant rocket-powered mechanical beetle vehicles is the day we give up on life. Although it would certainly be ironic if the game did turn out to be repetitive and boring!

Of course, we think the idea of painting your own custom bug fighting machine sounds awesome all by itself, and that doesn't even take into account the actual combat. Check out the latest trailer and our gallery of buggin' screenshots and get totally excited about drones!

Hmm, actually looks like a lot of fun! Atlus can really pump out games. The only Atlus game that really stands out in my mind as exceptional is the original Trauma Center... but dang, a lot of their other games such as GBA rpg's are pretty awesome.

Whoever was behind designing those mechs has quite an imagination. I'm not normally into strategy rpgs, but perhaps for robot beetles and dragonflies I'll make an exception.

I can't stand the suspense -- I've been waiting for this port for a year! If I had my way, even Brain Age would involve customizable insects.
