Mars: War Logs Won't Come In a Box, but Does Think Outside of One

This is Mars: War Logs, a game I had no idea was coming, but evidently was announced back in December. The fact this is a console downloadable (both XBLA and PSN, it'll also be available on PC) is intriguing to me because this trailer is promising a lot of stuff normally associated with boxed goods.

Some folks look on this as Rage meets Mass Effect, given the third-person perspective. I think the melee combat and countering calls up a little Assassin's Creed. Setting, of course invites Red Faction to the discussion. There's a perk/skill tree to give the game its RPG cred, too.

Mars: War Logs will come out some time this spring. Color me interested. The trailer doesn't say how long of a story you'll be given, but it does push what's commonly expected of console downloads. The game is by Spiders, published by Focus Home Interactive.

The combat animations and interactions look super unnatural. This needs a lot of polish to be any good.
