STILL haven't found what I'm Looking For

(1/2) > >>

DeadVerySoon:
Once upon a time, a Sega Genesis console game with a great theme and horrible execution, Beast Wrestler.
Arena combat.  Loser and victor get dumped in a blending vat after the combat, and out emerges a hybrid.

I wish there were a game:
Both arena and open world combat. Players are owners/managers/pilots/psychic masters.  Combatants are one of three:  Kaiju giant monsters similar to godzilla, king kong, etc, controlled psionically;  Giant Mecha Robots with pilots inside;   Cyborgs, a blend of both.  Victor in combat gets to salvage / harvest the DNA and parts and limbs and stuff of the vanquished.

tenbones:
You could build that in Savage Worlds.

Otherwise I'd start jotting down notes and find a system that scales really well to that powerlevel.

MSH (Marvel Super Heroes)
DC Heroes (Mayfair rules)

Any of those could easily handle exactly what you're looking for. But you're gonna have to get down and dirty and start building.

I had a lot of fun playing Monster Island: The Game of Giant Monster Combat.

It's based on the Hero System, but it is relatively streamlined. I thought the combat worked fairly well, and you could make a wrapper story or system for the owners around that.

DeadVerySoon:
thank you, excellent citation.

When I first looked at that piece, I thought it said, "Monster Bland" and that actually made me more interested in it.
