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


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
