This new set of screens Tecmo's East-meets-West third-person shooter Quantum highlights the game's strange mix of Gears of War-esque characters in a high fantasy setting.

I first saw Quantum (formerly Quantum Theory) at E3 this year, and boy was I confused. It looks and plays a bit like Gears of War, but the environments are something out of a late 70's, early 80's fantasy black light poster. You can't really see it in these shots, but there's a very Roger Dean, Yes album cover vibe going on in the game, which is exactly the sort of thing I wouldn't expect out of Japanese developers. Seeing as that is the developer Team Tachyon's goal, I'd say mission accomplished.

This game looks absolutely awful. It doesn't look like it'll be any fun to play, it doesn't look like it'll be any fun to watch... What the hell is up with that main guy's outfit!? What the hell is up with those enemy designs!? ... WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THE WAY THIS GAME LOOKS!? It's like I can't make any sense of this! There's just something seriously wrong with the way everything in this game looks!
