KoopaTV Live Reacts: Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3 2018: Daemon X Machina First-Look!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - This determines the quality of Nintendo's diverse game line-up.

Recall the very first thing that Nintendo showed on their Nintendo Direct: E3 2018. It was a trailer for a brand-new game from Marvelous, called Daemon X Machina.

From then until now, we didn't know anything about this game. But now Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3 2018 did a segment on it. We (myself and RawkHawk2010) were there — virtually — to react to the segment. Since it was the very first thing in Nintendo's Direct, then that means they wanted this game to make a great first impression. (Though, it took them to the end second day of E3 to have a segment on it, and they have done a lot of segments so far, as you can see in our E3 2018 Schedule.)

So... what did we think? Well, take a read:

[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THANKS FOR JOINING US

[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Brand new mech action game.

[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Male Sam, Chiko, Rich, and

[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uh

[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marvelous's what's-his-face

[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kenichiro Tsukuda

[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're starting by customising avatars now.

[6:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is apparently some mash of talent from different companies.

[6:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: No More Heroes gets the shaft in that description.

[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: So far this basically looks like X.

[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: (Xenoblade Chronicles X)

[6:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Robots are by dude who did Armored Core

[6:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dunno what that is but have heard of it.

[6:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: This place reminds me of Home Depot.

[6:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Probably all the orange.

[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorry, I'm not really following this on the edge of my seat.

[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Don't like deserts or mechas.

Daemon X Machina mecha flying over desert
You can either fly around, or you can be grounded. Not sure what the benefits of not flying are.

[6:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: 3D Action Adventure Desert Exploration Mech Fighter

[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "In this game, AI are the enemies that you fight."

[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like, they're called AI in-game?

[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or is he just dumb?

[6:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're probably not controlled by humans in-universe.

[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's a lot of bullets flying.

[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But nothing is really happening.

[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think the demo HP (or VP) is way too high to make a difference if you get shot at.

[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cutscene?

[6:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well I like that you can pick up stuff and throw it

[6:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like that car.

[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This reminds me of the Robot Labo.

[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or Giant Robot.

[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Except in a desert instead of a city.

[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You're a human in your Arsenal and you're fighting robots.

[6:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: This isn't that interesting when we don't know  the motive for any of this.

[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess they want to emphasise action.

[6:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: In Tennis Aces they at least told us Luigi got kidnapped.

[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There are no humans in those arsenals."

[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess there is no motivation.

[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You're fighting an exclusively-robot force.

[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So I guess robots are being jerks because they can and robots are evil.

Apparently a Strai is an evil sentient-enough-to-want-to-harm-you robot.
Like many games, if you defeat an enemy, you can take their weapon off of them.

[6:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: "ARMS of the Mortals"

[6:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: is what they're called.

[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Fuck ARMS.

[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If you blow up the robot with a sword, you can grab their sword.

[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And take it as their own.

[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's not exactly novel.

[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "By defeating an enemy, you can get all sorts of things."

[6:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Technical difficulty with the game.

[6:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: :link_face:

[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Touting real time weapon change.

[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Giant enemy crab?)

[6:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: People in Twitch chat are just talking about Let's Go!.

[6:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Thanks Pikachu.

[6:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe Pikachu's screeching crashed the game.

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "As you approach trees, you'll be able to see the, shaking as they get closer."

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Coordinate colours to elicit feelings from the player..."

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What the hell is he talking about?

[6:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Someone in the Twitch chat is saying that Treehouse Live ends 9 our time.

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And how does he know?

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dunno.

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: May be Fake News.

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: But I wouldn't doubt it.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I  would.

[6:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There are no people in these buildings, so Chiko doesn't have to worry about being a mass-murderer when she destroys them."

[6:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Everyone's living underground instead.

[6:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Ryu get in heeeere

[6:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe you'll care about this.

[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: @Kamek  should be off from work now. :open_mouth:

[6:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: This reminds me of Void Termina.

[6:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: With that sword.

[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or No More Heroes.

[6:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which had a mecha parody boss battle.

[6:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Crimson" and "Diablo" cutscene.

Daemon X Machina boss battle Crimson Lord cutscene explosion
...Hm? Explosion?

[6:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: oh hey exposition

[6:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, the segment is ending.

[6:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But there's "stay tuned"

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For Aces.

[6:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: CAN'T COMPLAIN

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I guess we can stay tuned for Aces.

Two more reaction logs left to publish for Wednesday! Thank you for staying tuned to KoopaTV. And... it doesn't look like the staff are big fans of Daemon X Machina.

The log before this was for a more intuitive gaming experience.
