For me the biggest attraction is the hand-to-hand combat. If its so well done like in videos, then its gonna be great! I always missed this deeper hand-to-hand combat in open world games. I hope its gonna be something similar to Batman combat system.

Whether the game's good or not, that's a darn impressive cast.

Activision is so going to regret their decision. But that's okay for me. XD

I don't think they will. I think this is going to tank personally. Which will just show that acti where right to abandon ship. Still shitty how acti pretty much dont publish anything outside of COD and movie license games tho.

I'm actually really impressed with the title so far. Biggest surprise of the year for me. It doesn't look like one of those games you will invest 100 hours in because you are deep in the story, but if the gameplay is as fun as it looks, it could have the Just Cause 2 effect and make me not care.

I'm also really surprised how well it looks graphically. The color palette, effects, and art style are all really well done, and really gives the feeling of being in Hong Kong. Love the fact they went a little more mature with the combat. I've always wanted a game with Batman style combat but a little more brutal results. I'm keeping my expectations rather low, but I think this could be a sleeper hit...

Actually, I wouldn't mind if the cast was famous or not. It's all about the delivery.

(and secretly, I'd love a Cantonese language option to make it more atmospheric!)

hmmm it will take a few more days to formulate my thoughts around the video ... initially I'm not sure what they are trying to pull other than tell me "Hey I'm Squ'nix and I am spending money on brand name voice acting for this GTA style game ... "

I was more impressed when I didn't know, so now I'm thinking - gimmick

Can't wait! I was so bummed when Activision decided to cancel it.

it just seems so much bigger now with that cast.

About the game

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (3 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. (6 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 (8 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? (9 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. (15 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    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. (16 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. (30 minutes ago)
