Can you believe its getting close to release? If you're unfamiliar with the franchise, its an open-ended cyberpunk RPG. The setting is sort of like Blade Runner, Syndicate, and Ghost in the Shell, and the gameplay is similar to Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3/NV as far as having a wide range of freedom in how you go about completing quests and progressing in the game.

Currently slated for March 2011, coming to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. GET HYPE.

Hells yeah crush, I was planning on doing this but you beat me to the punch. I'm calling it now, GOTY 2011. Everything I've seen about this game has me excited. Only one thing that I'm curious about is how some of the special moves will work. For the most part it looks like game is primarily in 1st person, but it looks like he has some special moves, like using cover and some crazy melee stuff that causes the camera to switch to 3rd person. I'm wondering if it's some kind of context sensative thing, like when your ina certain distance of a target do you just push a button to perform a flashy kill? Or are the trailers just over dramatizing it and's its gonna be like fallout where you just generically swing your weapon.
Crushinator
I think it has a mix of first and 3rd person. Kind of like in Rainbow 6: Vegas when you take cover the camera "pulls out" to a 3rd person view.

Man, I thought I gave up on special editions but this one seems worth it. Of course I'm getting it on the Tr3y. 4 lyfe.

I'm totally psyched for this and it seems to be one of my more if not most anticipated game of 2011, which saying quite alot seeing how 2011 is gonna be another stellar year.
Crushinator
FUCK! DELAYED!

I hold FF14 directly responsible for this bullshit. crash.gif
Crushinator


FFuuuuuuuck, I NEED this game.
AC9breaker
Hells yeah this Uncharted 3 and MvC3 or like my top 3 most anticipated titles of 2011. I'm sure this game is gonna be phenomenal, I've got that feeling about it.

Out next week! Who is getting it? I've been hungry for a good RPG, I hope this fits the bill.
Scan_Man
Me! Already bought my copy on Steam (10% off steam deal). Hopefully it will be just as good as the first, but I hope with modernized interface and inventory management. The preview build has been floating around the net for a few months now. Impression have been mostly positive from those that have played it.

I'll be there, got to add it to the collection of the other two games.

There really aren't any single player rpgs out now that I want, so i will prob pick this up sometime in the future. Haven't played a good future-esque rpg in some time

So what type of playthrough and augs are you guys doing? I'm trying to do Non-lethal and mostly stealth augs. Besides the introduction area, which is very similar to Mass Effect 2 intro and not as good, the game is pretty much like Deus Ex. Very Impressed. Lots of quick saving and reloading if you are trying to adhere to a particular playstyle. Messing up pretty much means death anyway, most of the time. My only complaint, so far, is there is less stuff to pick up for your inventory and it seems inconsistent; you can pick up some soda cans or boxes but not others.

I'm doing a full playthrough to upload on youtube (playlist will be setup later): http://www.youtube.com/user/SolidDave666

I started doing stealth/nonlethal, but I keep jumping the gun instead of being patient... so I guess I'm going to "go loud" and lethal. I like how difficult the game is, you can't just go out like rambo in your standard FPS, you'll die to even the simplest of enemies.

The stealth system is really well done, something very few games get right. I really like the hacking mini-game too, it was a little confusing at first but after a few hacks I have the hang of it and its a fun challenge.
Scan_Man
Yeah the thing about going stealth is if you make a mistake because you forgot to check which way they were facing or want to do any type of experimenting, pretty much means you have to reload your save. And the loading times on this game are pretty bad; and I'm on PC (lots of complaints about even with people using SSD).

This game is pretty damn satisfying, especially when you find a creative way to get around a hurdle. I love how you have to figure out how you want to achieve an objective. I like this kind of choice instead of having choice giving to you via straight forward dialogue option like in Mass Effect and Fallout 3/NV. Also, I like how choosing your Augments is tough. So many good and interesting choices to make, but only limited points to spend.

Yeah the hacking mini-game is fun. I mentioned in one of the videos in my playthrough that it's the best hacking mini-game I've seen yet.

Just finished this game recently. Cynical spoilers ahead...

I like how he's a walking PDA. He's got wi-fi in his head, can hack shit, and needs to recharge his batteries cause he's only got one bar left. Turn the dial on his nipple and he can cook microwave dinners. Oh, and with enough praxis points, he can make coffee, too. You just insert a pouch in his shoulder and enjoy some instant fresh brewed coffee.

As for the story...
Soooo, the Knights Templar, Free Masons, Enron, Microsoft, Illuminati, Robot Barack Obama, and a syndicate of 12 evil bankers all want to control the world, destroy it, enslave humanity, and merge with machines all at the same time. Oh and your character is: DNA = robot messiah. He can't walk on water, but he's got cool shades inside his face, that pop out when it's sunny out side.

It was a surprising polished stealth game and I enjoyed the experience. The story is pretty much a series of internet conspiracy theories all rolled into one video game, but otherwise it was a solid game. Definately worth playing through for the experience. Been awhile since I played a quality game.
