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.

    GrimThorne @scoobs: If MS isn't going with Zen cores then I would hope they would at least go with Pumas. Same architecture, better return on performance (43 minutes ago)

    scoobs0688 Poor Nintendo is finally releasing a comparably powerful piece of hardware and yet again will be left in the dust by its competitors (58 minutes ago)
  • GrimThorne
    GrimThorne @Tinks: Same here. There is a demographic for the higher end console if MS and Sony are willing to explore that end of the market (58 minutes ago)

    scoobs0688 I have a feeling console gamers will eat this up, and enjoy spending money on more powerful iterations every year or two (1 Hour ago)

    GrimThorne Having friends on both sides, I can say that it might be nice to get some crossplay out of both groups (1 Hour ago)

    scoobs0688 They'll be using the same shitty CPU so there will be significant cost savings reusing old shitty components. They'll spend those savings on a beefier GPU, easy gains (1 Hour ago)
  • GrimThorne
    GrimThorne But alot of console gamers aren't coming over. There's almost a built in prejudice against PCs. It's pathetic. Of course alot PC Master Racers haven't exactly been welcoming to the console masses (1 Hour ago)
