 Anyone seen the trailers for Detroit : Become Human? Looks really good, lots of butterfly effect moments similar to Until Dawn.

It looks good, it'll divide opinion due to how much of a game it actually is rather than an interactive movie, I personally really enjoyed heavy rain so will be giving it a go

Rather bizarrely Quantic have litereally squeezed gameplay out of their games with every release. It'll be interesting to see what form Detroit: Become Human takes when it's out. After that they should just create a movie for PSVR or something.

I actually plat'd Beyond: Two Souls. I found the experience to be akin to one of those 'so bad it's good' movies.

I am looking forward to it.

I personally adore every game that David Cage directs even though a lot of it does fall under the "so bad, it's good" banner of things. Detroit: Become Human looks great, but I am concerned that it'll wind up being an overambitious underachiever of a game. This game seems a lot more complex than his previous games there is word that some scenes can end in one of six ways and it only branches more from there. If each scene has 6-10 branches then I just don't know how this game will have a satisfactory end, but I am curious.

It looks good right now at the very least.

I have it installed on this PC. I will likely get started on it next week, I'm looking forward to it as it looks like System Shock with its own flavour it's hopefully going to be great fun.

Yeah I've been seeing a few good reviews out there. Trying to stay away from spoilers though so picking my reviews is like walking across a minefield.

Eh, if you got on OK with the 'Aliens' ending of Fahrenheit then I don't think there's too much to worry about.

Right...? :D

I had put that to the back of my mind. Nothing can be as bad as that so you are right aha, there is little to worry about :D

Dynasty warriors 9 announced!

before you say same old same old they're making it an open world game timed to the events which I don't know how they'll do it, 83 characters all with their own side missions and I'm guessing some will have to die as you play through, they're bringing back the bow and introducing new elements like a grappling hook

Not sure the dev team adding the extra work of making it open world will help when they struggle to get the core game quality right these days, but I will give it a go as reinvention should be rewarded. If it's still average after this change I'll likely stay away from the series until they decide to reinvent it again, but they have me curious at least.

same here, at its core the romance of the 3 kingdoms is a great story with plenty to work with, for whatever reason omega force think that adding new characters and making it more fantasy based is the direction to take it in whereas i personally would rather they tied it in deeper to the source material, have 5-10 characters from each kingdom and give them an arc

Polybius has finally arrived and it's ace. Here's the first 2 levels with me playing it pretty safe. There's a lot going on and it's fun figuring out all the nuances of each level.

So now you can mash buttons in a open world! I suppose that might make it better... ;)

Quoting myself i know but Prey is already down to £29.99 in Game and they are now also including the steelbook case & soundtrack cd at that price,

Not even 2 weeks at full price. Every bethesda game is the same.
