Spec Ops' story moments, I dunno, are kinda... I watched an LP of it and I felt like I got what I would've gotten out of it playing it; it's impactful, don't get me wrong, but it's also less involved from a story telling perspective. Binary Domain is more open; not that either of them are open from a gameplay perspective, but from a story perspective the conversations you get with your crew are different depending on who you take with you. Binary Domain definitely seems funner to play, purely because the way robots blow up are hella cool and the dudes in spec ops are dudes.

Difference in developer styles. an MMO developer has to keep you informed because they want you to keep up in their system and maybe buy things or maybe continue your subscription.

Likewise, a smaller game developer can more easily say things like what you're implying because each of them KNOWS a lot more, by virtue of their team being smaller. If a team is 4 people, than each of those people should know what the others are working on; less so for a team of 50 or even 20.

Criterion is a big developer but they don't necessarily have to engage you like a MMO developer does; also because the PC isn't their lead platform in this case, which isn't the case with MMO developers.

@Bourbon_Warrior: some of it was for hotline miami; jasper byrne's stuff was, as was perterburator's contribution (probably, the song is called miami disco so)

it should be the bakers, because troy was in way more and had much more unique performances (I had no idea he was in Binary Domain until the credits where I saw he played the stiff british guy and I was all dang)

@AsuraTheDestructor190: I am thinking maybe you have a bias towards asura's wrath... maybe.

honestly don't see hte reason why others can't do their own; also, you should make sure the group can work together and make compelling arguments and (maybe) be mildly funny before you lock in spots, honestly.

@Gaff: and here's a list I just came up with:

  • Final Fantasy 13-2
  • Binary Domain
  • Sleeping Dogs
  • Devil Survivor 2
  • Persona 4 Arena
  • Crusader Kings 2
  • Hotline Miami
  • Journey? not really sure on the definition of dark horse
  • Xenoblade Chronicles
  • Last Story (maybe I dunno don't see TOO much hype for it)
  • Spec Ops: The Line
  • Asura's Wrath

I think you see the same 3-4 dark horse recommendations because they're really good ones.

I thought he was talking about the girl you either did or did not mercy kill in episode 3.

@Gaff: how many real dark horses were there last year? I mean 2010 had an absurd number of them, but there weren't TOO many last year.

I'd be terrible because all I would do would be rail for Crusader Kings 2, but if too many people decide they want to you might wanna split it up into groups.
