LOVE the art style, not impressed by what they have shown gameplay wise so far, especially when all they talk about is graphics / ant base / and what they ripped from my favorite game to give there game some sort atmosphere

and taken away multiple bases was LAME, shows how much shallower this game will be in terms of gameplay, losing a base in original, put that more pressure on you and , it was great to instead of being game over you had multiple bases to fall back on giving that more open ended gameplay, what i feel this game is going to lack

Absolutely enthralled by this game. Never played the old games but I wish I did back in the day because I could totally see the old installments being in my favorite games of all time. I mean a turn based alien invasion... it doesn't get better than that.

About the game

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (8 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (14 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Sdarts: I don't know. The shooting felt off. It had mouse acceleration, which I hate. Cover wasn't fluid. But I loved the story. I also couldn't stand the voice of Drake in that setting. (15 minutes ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix I love when story and gameplay match, and most of it is told in-game than just cutscenes. Remedy's games are also great at that. (29 minutes ago)
