Gas Powered Games sees layoffs, might close Kickstarter

When thinking of what-if scenarios that you wouldn't want to happen while running a Kickstarter campaign, I feel like "layoffs" would be up there pretty high. Days after seeking crowdfunding support for its action-RPG/RTS Wil...

Gas Powered Games has 'a lot of interest in' Demigod 2

Demigod was a good game. As such, a sequel to Demigod would be -- I have to imagine -- received well. In a Gamescom-flavored interview between Gamers.fr and Gas Powered Games' leading man Chris Taylor, the notion of doing a f...

In the last day of our exclusive Supreme Commander 2 videos, Gas Powered's Chris Taylor takes a look at the "Universal Colossus" unit.

The successor to Supreme Commander's "Galactic Colossus," Taylor calls this unit one of the "most incredible units in Supreme Commander 2. This thin fires a massive beam out of its single eye, and destroys units that get in its path by sucking up units and spitting them back out. Additionally, this thing will enhance the armor of any nearby friendly units.

After the jump we've got a bonus video -- a look at the Noah Cannon. Don't forget to check out our earlier videos where we took a look at the Bomb Bouncer, The Kracken, The AC1000, and the Pulinsmash

A look at Supreme Commander 2's 'Pulinsmash' in action

In today's exclusive look we bring you another experimental unit from the upcoming Supreme Commander 2, the "Pulinsmash." The massive unit spins its arms to create a vortex, which in turn sucks up nearyby enemy units. The fi...

"Tons of fun at weddings, funerals, birthday parties, you name it," says Gas Powered's Chris Taylor of today's featured Supreme Commander 2 unit, the AC1000.

Inspired by the real-life AC130 gunship (as flown by the United States Air Force), the AC1000 circles enemy units, raining holy terror upon them with a hail of bullets. The AC1000, with its quick flight and intense firepower, should be the perfect unit to take out an enemy's ground position.

Oh, and remind us not to stay away from any of Taylor's birthday parties... if the AC1000 is involved, it'll likely lead to a funeral.

We had previously taken an exclusive look at Supreme Commander 2's Bomb Bouncer and The Kraken. Tomorrow, we turn our eyes towards the Pulinsmash unit which, believe it or not, smashes things. You'll just have to see it with your own eyes.

Today we take to the sea, with an exclusive look at "The Krakek," an Cybran faction experimental submarine in Supreme Commander 2.

"It has a very intimidating look," says Gas Powered Games Chris Taylor. "Its looks match its firepower."

Obviously designed after the mythical sea monster of the same name, Supreme Commander 2's Kraken can be used to destroy nearby ships, aircraft, as well as enemy submarines. The Kraken's usefulness isn't confined to water, however -- bringing the unit close to shore will allow it to attack structures and land units.

Be sure not to miss yesterday's look at the "Bomb Bouncer." Tomorrow we take a look at a Supreme Commander 2 unit inspired by the real-life AC130 gunship, the AC1000. Yes, the discrepancy in numbers gives you a good idea of what we're dealing with.

In the first of five exclusive videos, Gas Powered Game's CEO Chris Taylor gives us a look at the "Bomb Bouncer" unit from Supreme Commander 2, the upcoming real-time strategy title for PC and Xbox 360.

The "Bomb Bouncer" is one of the experimental units you'll be able to choose from when siding with the game's Cybran faction. The spider-like walker protects itself and surrounding friendly units with a massive umbrella-like shield, bouncing back incoming enemy fire.

Even sweeter, as incoming fire pounds the shield, it stores charge for something called the "Mega Blast," which is exactly what it sounds like -- a mega blast that does incredible damage. The "Mega Blast" can be charged by using stored reserves before going into battle as well.

As Taylor puts it, the "Bomb Bouncer" is only one of Supreme Commander 2's "over-the-top" experimental units. Watch the video above to see it in action, and check back tomorrow for a peek at another unit, The Kraken.
