Chromehounds 2 - Comeback or Fadeout
If there were to be a Chromehounds 2, would it at all spark an interest amist previous players? As is, probably not, but if there were an improved server, and a reasonable setup, I'd like to think so. In turn, I'd like to simply ask, besides a better loading/game setup and server connection/reliability, what other ideas would you recommend for SEGA and From Software to use?

Do you even play Chromehounds? Personally, I love this game and still play it almost daily. I'm not sure what basis they could make Chromehounds 2 on though... Maybe you could reconstitute Cerberus or something. I must admit the loading save data is a pain, it also doesn't help that the game assumes you want to decline all the time. Server connection/reliability was never really a problem with me, sometimes you get people with NAT settings strict but that is not SEGAs problem.

I never had connections problems provided I didn't play with Americans all the time in full matches, online was never a problem at all really.

If they did make a sequel I would expect them to make the single player longer and maybe give you more of an identity in it. Better environments would be a plus too especially if HOUNDs are going to be as slow.

Well, lets get a Chromehounds 2 out there finally. Then we could really have a final product to critique. Personally, adding a few more countries, more ways to access parts, and more of them (parts that is), better senery, and a final fix to that s****y server, i would be happier.

I would definitley play, i loved the first one

I love the game. I would like to see more functionality for the "little" guy. I would like to take over a tank, or defender.:uzi:

Inf Enforcer D 07-24-2008 02:47 AM

Suming up thus far
1) More parts; seriously, after all the time that had to of passed, this is warranted now. 2) More Areas and Battlefields; with the detailed explanation of how this became a three-way war (GSSR > Morskoj, Far East Union > Sal Kar, America > Tarakia), more countries overall would be excessive. 3) Chassis-friendly terrain, which could spur the idea of a terrain-specific Chassis. 4) Defender control (for the little guy). 5) A thought-out single player; my idea for such… a new version of Cerberus, Pilot details (a character editor w/o the RPG style), a more real-time approach (which includes a seven-layer RT campaign). Some of my squad-mates also mentioned a laser type weapon (DE - Direct Energy), better "Super" weapons (referring to Ghalib, MSK-X0 & M99 Patriot), and maybe that of an EMP device (no longer than a 18000 effect time). I figure that this one will take place about a decade from the first one, so some of this stuff won't be too crazy. Feel free to be specific; I'm seriously keeping track of this stuff. However, I'm drawing the line at lasers (though I will try to get a Counter-Sniper and Satellite up there).

Lastly, I have "ESK-AZ1 Golem" to replace Ghalib (added a 90 anti-Hound Rocket system and 12 [KE] Defender Cannons aside from it's 36x4 HEAT Missiles), "MSK-XP1 Masekiev" to replace MSK-X0 (added longer range rockets and a faster reload time on the [CE] Heavy Howitzer) and "MTX-001 Justice" to replace M99 Patriot (added more maneuverability and a [DE] Super Laser). I've already have the design specs (and no, there not as sad as the original "unidentified" weapons).

well i hope they do make a 2nd one. i loved the first one

rican ninja89 08-05-2008 04:19 AM

theres lots of things that can be inproved to make this great game even better but what i would love to see is when ur playing with multiple ppl online and if u die instead of becoming a lil person that cant do anything they should give you the option to control the regular frendlie AI bots and turrets

Speed OD 06-12-2009 04:55 PM

o ya i have my hole sqd that would get a chrome hounds 2 if it ever came out only thing is thos r sum big shoes to fill but i think sega can atleast match there work just give us more free battle maps WAY MORe parts n more countrys

Kimdir 06-30-2009 10:01 PM

From what I understand there was (or is still maybe) a CH2 in development, but Sega too a big hit on this game. Probably from the fact that they released it rather early in the 360's lifetime. I love this game also, but Sega couldn't/can't find anyone to either develop or publish the game, I forget which.

Honestly, I think we should petition for the release of a sequel. This game is why I bought my 360.

More balance so we do not end up with 3 main hound builds. More control and options over squads for the leader (as well as havig a successor should the leader wish to step-down without ending squad)
Maybe achievements that though still take time, do not make people cheat as much. More events besides super-weapons to make online more well...eventful, and maybe more means of squad/squad interactions. Though the single player was fine as a tutorial (its all it was, stop thinking it was intended to be anything more) I would nto mind some other modes offline to waste time in. Also better free missions that seem atleast somewhat worth it.
Also maybe CH1 data transfering, parts maybe, but more for squads who would want to not have to re-start. Not a big thing, but woudl be nicer to just transfer the whole squad than reform and refind it.

borgBOB 01-01-2010 07:52 AM

I would be all over a CH 2 :Bounce:, but I do not expect it to ever happen.

More Mech games are needed on XBL. More parts/weapons/maps.

A sequel needs a better single player mode.

UberNoob95 01-04-2010 06:22 AM

YES i would love a CH2. I got mine for Christmas and i got hooked. Although you are REALLY slow and it takes forever to take down a base. But yeah MORE CHROME HOUNDS

Jet1337 01-25-2010 03:27 AM

lol @ this necro'd topic

Chromehounds 2 would own. Too bad From Software has their heads up their asses 24/7 with Armored Core.

Rednaxela729 05-31-2010 12:29 AM

I seriously loved Chromehounds. A second would be amazing. Ten on ten battles would fun. Bigger maps for more players obviously. When you die you should be able take control of the ACVs (the little mechs on the field) and if they made a second one, I would love for much much much better detail, rock slides, mud slides or avalanches on the weather condition maps altering maps/ hazards like the mines. There's so many ideas I can't name them all.

NraGes 07-14-2010 09:57 PM

ok i think chromehounds 2 should have the same type of online gameplay like the original chromehounds like team Death Match but making like 20v20 . Go into details of what you can but on the hound. i think they should make the hounds have more stamina or speed. also make the maps bigger so people dont exploit the game and base range with a overweight hound. they should also give the hounds more custimization to them like more parts or accessories . some smaller to make the hound more defensive like have small joints that can make another piece go where ever it can making the hound look more unique. also more bullet ammo types and weapons. have legs that can carry more weight to hold more guns and armor, but not to many so it gives you an easy advantage. also give them more health so they can handle bullet dmg. also have to have amazing graphics. but a very good level system unlocking stuff on the way and improvement to hound accessories like legs giving more stamina maybe, bullets giving more damage stuff like that. these ideas would make the game the best. Gt was BM GH0ST so yea....

xxT Petersonxx 08-07-2010 06:18 AM

I freaking Love chromehounds! Yeah i wasnt a huge fan of the story but online is where its at! I played it sense it game out till about 2009 when i decided to part with it because i was in all the wars, haha i think it was like war number 53 or something like that.

But yeah If they made a new one i would buy it in a heart beat! Heck is they made a new download for the original i would buy it again.

I remember always sniping online and just watching that massive bullet drop into the guys cockpit.

If they did anything i would just want:
-A blackmarket, so you can buy all country parts instead of waiting every war for a selected few parts then getting outbidded on it.
-Bullet damage, Yeah it's cool that you can shoot armor and guns off but it would be sweet to see bullet holes (sniper round leaving a huge hole in the armor)
-Make some parts lighter that obviously wouldnt weigh that much.

facehugger 08-19-2010 07:49 AM

Would love to see a second that our the return of its online I had all the dlc and feel jipped that I can't use it any more.:mad:

bleachedbones 10-16-2010 05:31 AM

I feel even more screwed over because of the online achievements that where for the most part impossible. Then just shutting the servers down.....really like it took much to run what little that was going on...i know i was still plugging away at some of the class ones when they did that.

GRODD 03-06-2011 01:48 AM

I really hope that they do reboot this game... It was awesome in its' hayday... Love how you could customize your machines.

xhunta 11-08-2011 05:11 PM

I really would play Chromehounds 2 if it was ever made. I used to have a squad that won nearly every sortie that we were in. I have heard that Armored Core V is supposed to have a sort of Chromehounds squad based feel to it.

PANIC ATTACK 10 12-20-2011 08:37 PM

AC5 is chromehounds2. cant wait!

DigitALxBullets 04-23-2012 02:37 PM

not showing as discontinued on
I was checking on my Trueachievements account to see what was discontinued and CHROMEHOUNDS was not there, so I like to know if anybody knows that if this game is having it's servers reactivated?

Carbon-Q 05-06-2012 07:35 PM

I really doubt it. This will be one of the games on my list that can not be finished.
