I really hope this becomes more mechanically interesting than what's been shown so far, cause it still seems like another Amnesia game with a sci fi setting. The themes of consciousness and story sound more interesting, like the robots thinking they're human.

I needs it. Looks great. And the premis is actually interesting for a change.

Still looks kind of boring to me. Interesting, but boring.

Surely that's an oxymoron?

Actually looks really amazing. Couldn't get into Amnesia really but I love this psycho sci-fi setting.

I just mean that the A.I. stuff is interesting, but the game play looks kind of boring. I mean it doesn't look bad, I just don't think I care enough to play it.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
