What draws me to it is the keeping track of our wins/loses, giving this some meat to chew on. I'm sure that if it was just a matter of play with no achievements or win/loss records, I would probably play only a few times and put it down.

That definitely is a huge draw for me. Plus, the fact that you don't have to wait too long to play.

 

That being said.... I'm kicking bot today! The blue is running a lot better. I don't think I've lost with the blue at all today, but I did lose once with the red.

 

My last round I got a 91% accuracy! Best I've seen yet!

Wow, this just completely shocked me, kind of let me down. Blue 'tripped over' and lost his leg. I kind of feel like the little kid standing in line to see the mall Santa when the kid ahead of me seeing him pulls his beard off, revealing the truth. Honestly I thought they were robots, given the amazing job RA did with the Santa Claw and putting some mechanical things together. The Santa Claw gave RA some great credibility in my book. So with tonight's incident, I'm not sure what to make of it other than I now know what 'draining excess fluids are' since we all do it every day

I'm not sure, I just played right after that. Right now, I'm not sure what to think about the discovery other than it being funny that the blue robot almost fell over. I'm sure the Real Art staff are having fun beating each other up

 

Now, to make my own take on Ro-Bros with LittleBigPlanet, should be fun since if one gets hit the wrong way/puts on strain, parts can 'break' off.

I'm half wondering if they did that on purpose because of everything that guy was saying.

 

EDIT: I have no idea what I'm talking about, actually, and I think it'd be best just to wait until someone who knows more can explain.

I'm even more and more curious as to how it all works then of its dudes in the robots. I kinda figured there had to be some sort of human element involved which is why they had to shut it down at night, but wasn't quite sure.

 

Interesting...

My guess is that (guess is derived from people chatting in lobby) maybe people are seeing our commands inside the robots via a tablet, and acting out the moves. My guess would also be that maybe there are still impact sensors. On the flipside, I wouldn't mind having one of these robots for a Halloween costume next year.

 

In terms of shutting down for the night, I initially thought that because of how they did the Santa Claw recently, they would follow suit with the Ro Bros. After all, there were glitches that happened through the night during the first run with the Claw. Further denying the fact previous to today, I wondered how the robots stayed balanced and speculated that maybe they're hooked up from above for stability. But now it all makes sense with the 'robot maintenance/shift change?', blank out screen between fights, and shutting off for the evening.

 

Part of me wonders if they might have had intentions on actually using robotics but bailed out at the last minute due to an issue...it just doesn't quite seem Real Art-ish to me.

 

I still however think the concept of this was pretty cool, to the point that I decided to make my own take on it in the LittleBigPlanet game, where 2 players can whack each other (and possibly break arms off in the process) using the classic Red & Blue bots.

Disregard that backwards "B" that shouldn't have been there...it fell from above :)

 

The beginning 'floor' of the level where you choose sides.

And one of the bots, the blue one at that...complete with hammer and 'tron' style lighting. I do need to make the impact sensors on it however and figure out how to make a damage meter in the game.

I think it says a LOT for Real Art to have made it so believable! I kinda of always just assumed it was dudes in the robots based on the movement, slower response time, and the downtime at night. Not sure why this would have any effect on what anyone thinks of the game, though....

Here is my two cents, not that anyone cares. RAD did an absolutely superb job on the website, and honestly, I don't think if they went back and tweaked or changed anything on it that they could make it better and I bow to them for their design. It really shows off their creative ability and talent.

 

As for the game itself I just don't find myself rushing home at night to play it and I don't find myself trying to sign up and sneak in a few games at work each day. With said, I have played it a few times but feel something is just missing. For me personally I get why they chose the music for the website, but we need some heavy metal hardcore battle music with pows and pops when the bots hit each other. IMO it would add that element that would draw the crowds in.

I was kinda shocked to see that, especially after we were arguing against this guy who insisted they were people, and the rest of us didn't believe him. I still think they did that on purpose as a joke, since literally right before that some of us were arguing with this guy that there's no way it could be people inside.

 

If it is people in there the whole time (I'm still not 100% convinced yet), it puts a whole new spin on the announcements. Saw a notice this morning: "Please stand by: Bots are undergoing scheduled lubrication and maintenance. Bot B is also draining an excess fluid buildup. This should only take a moment." I'm sure it will.

 

Either way, I think RA are genius just in the fact that we still don't know what they are and how it works.

 

Plus, I finally watched all of the lab videos and looked at the descriptions of the robots.... I haven't really seen anything that doesn't sound like a joke. "Hurricane Punch Force?" Shells made out of moon dust and uranium? The strength to crush coal into diamonds?
