It looks great. But I still have doubts. I have the impression this is going to be a mix between WD and GTA

No physics for car explosions is distracting.

Its gonna be a mix of Mafia and gta but it seems way more like gta unfortunately. I just hope that it will still be unique like Mafia 1and 2 despite lolking more like gta. Don't get me wrong gta is awesome but what makes Mafia great is that its very different than most open world crime games

Mafia 2 was not unique in any way, it was just a good (great) game. Mafia 1 was unique. I am not expecting a mafia 1 level, but I hope it will be at least similar to Mafia 2 in terms of involvement and quality.

The big difference between the two is Mafia puts most of it's energy in the on foot action. The missions feels more crafted with a real melee and stealth option. Mafia 3 seems to really be building on that.

I wish GTA would adopt some of this. GTA V has a great map with very little in the way of set pieces. My hope is that someday GTA will have Hitman mechanics and level/mission detail within their world.

Mafia games never felt like GTA to me for some reason. Nevertheless, I'm excited to play this.

Well , maybe it wasn't unique to you but it was for me. After playing tons of open world games it felt different in a good way. I didn't finish Mafia 1 btw but i played a lot of it and yes it was more unique than 2.

Mafia 2 was a boring game because it went the GTA way. All, the damn pointless driving. I liked the missions. But all the rest was useless and didn't add anything to the game. I didn't finish the game for that reason.
It seems this game is even more GTA and WD. Why WD: you have to take over all the districts. That's the template of Ubisoft open world games.

They seem to have made this Open World 101, which is a bit meh. Hopefully story carries it.

Otherwise I don't know how much stamina I have left for "go and make all the red sections of the map green by doing repetitive tasks" design.,

i think the base story will be fun, but the surrounding fluff will be crap. on the plus, it looks really nice for an open world game. on the downside. it looks like it runs like crap. i'll wait until it's cheap.

Going to wait for the Pro before i jump on this. Looks fantastic.
Commented on 2016-09-30 17:25:47
Forgot the add - The bullets / explosions / physics all seem very unsatisfactory from this video. Like I don't need them to be state of the art, but they just don't look fun. Body physics are silly, the way the vehicles just do a little hop after exploding is silly and just not satisfying.

My interest in this game has been a roller coaster. I don't think it's "day one" at the moment.

No PS4 update has been anounced. So I wouldn't get my hopes up that it will look better or run better on PS4 pro. Maybe later after release, but I doubt it.
They also said it would push your hardware on PC to the limit. (Does that mean it will look much better on PC or will the port (done by another studio) be unoptimised?)

Hope it's optimised for PC, GhostRobo (Ytuber) did have some footage back then (not in 60fps though) showcasing the game.

Wouldn't be the first a publisher outsourced their game to someone else.

Being born and raised in real New Orleans, this is an automatic buy for me. I've always wished that the nearly everpresent rumors of a GTA title being set in this city would hold true, all to no avail. The fact that a developer is finally stepping up and setting a title in this wholly unique place and especially setting it during such a tumultuous time in our nation's history means they get my support no questions asked. Hopefully the game lives up to its premise though...
Commented on 2016-10-01 07:57:58
I really hope it succeeds. The setting and the story seem very appeling to me.
I find the overtaking of districts as a fitting side task, having read that you can really strategize in how you approach them. Then there's underbosses which look like a nice dynamic mechanic too, cause not giving some boss enough areas to run might result in him turning on you.
I keep my thumbs up for Hangar 13.

I thought it was mandatory that all games released in October and after had to have Pro mode?

I think, that initial was the plan, according to leaked documents. But it's no longer the case; it's completely up to developers as to whether they add a "Pro mode" to their game.

Really thats insane? So when i get my Pro in November the next 20 games that i want might only have 2 with a Pro mode? That really puts me off now...going to have to look into this more now as really whats the point in having it if the games are not going to support it?

I think if you're a first time PS4 buyer then it's a no brainer. Still go for it even if some titles don't support it fully. If you DO already own a PS4 though, then of course it becomes a more difficult decision to make.

Ive got 2 PS4s already. Honestly im amazed at this im so close to cancelling pre order

I don't think that is true. Developers are free to take advantage of the extra power in the pro as they want but they have to make a pro mode for games released in and after October. I haven't seen anything suggesting otherwise. Mafia 3, titanfall 2, ffxv etc all will have a pro mode. Its how many old games will get a patch that isn't as we were hoping for

That's what i thought.

I can't really find any official line on this.

But also what would it actually mean for a "Pro-mode" to be mandatory?

I mean, obviously all PS4 games will run on the Pro, but for a game to have a "Pro-mode" does it have to meet a specific graphical requirement?... I don't think so.
