With this title getting so close, and little to no buzz, has me worried.

No big splash at E3 or at Comic Con. Doesn't bode well does it?

I wish them the best though... The earlier titles were solid.

First review (from PC Gamer) was extremely positive, something like 93 I think.

I am still not sold myself, may need a demo to get off the fence.

Agreed. As much as I love the premise, everything I have seen just looks too linear, cliche, and overly scripted. Maybe it's just one of those games that isn't fun to watch, but playing is different entirely. Hope they do have a demo, because that could mean the difference between a day 1 purchase, or maybe renting when I get around to it.

Not to mention graphics are meh on consoles, and physics look just plain bad. Seeing guys get shot and jump up in the air and flip over? Kinda cheesy. Not huge deals, but they don't do the game any favors.

Edit: So far we have 1 PC review at 95% and 1 PS3 review at 8/10. Since I would get it for PS3, that doesn't sound too hot for the world premier review(they are usually overly high). They said things like lot's of backtracking to old locations, too limited amo, and cheesy boss battles dragged the score down. Now I definitely will need some sort of demo. Any word if one is planned?

Surprised actually how lots of comments i'm seeing are on the side of negative. Looks like i'll be enjoying this one a fair bit

I guess we shall see

Backtracking and limited ammo? excellent

Seriously looking forward to this. Game looks like it's doing a lot of stuff similar titles like mass effect and bioshock got so wrong. Plenty of options outside of just dialogue choices and plenty of opertuinities for exploration outside of the main narrative.

Mainly tho, i just love how similar it is to deus ex 1. From the gameplay, to the music, To the slightly supid AI, even down to adams breathy, gravely voice that is just SO similar to Denton. Seems like i'm gonna be in for a treat.

94% from PC Gamer, 8/10 from OPM and 10/10 from OXM - not shabby, not shabby at all.

why is it super brown/gold looking?? I hate that look in games so annoying.

looks somewhat unpolished but I guess thats part of the appeal since it's a bit of a throwback to the unforgiving games of yore.

Their art direction is black-and-gold.

Urge to watch rising! Must resist.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Why a second dock? :) (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX but it's already being put through its paces in multiple modes. I would have bought a second dock immediately if they weren't so expensive. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I do have some minor gripes about the inventory system, but other than that it's stellar so far. The platform is great too. Zelda doesn't push the full flexibility of the system on its own (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @asdfg: I started off with a pretty messed up schedule this week :P (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I took a break from it a month or a little more ago. Really need to get back to it but Dishonored is eating up all my game time, plus i am in a big movie mood lately. (2 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @GriftGFX: did you forget to go to bed? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Zelda is kinda a time machine, huh? (5 Hours ago)
