It's not that I'm already calling it a bad game. It might be a good game. But it's super disappointing to see that Nintendo is doing this with the franchise. Anyone who has ever enjoyed any of the main entries in the series would not suggest that we make one that is a bad looking multiplayer shooter, especially one that looks like it was until recently something else.

Everything in that trailer looked great! Except the part where Jensen was shooting guns. Everything but that part.

Seems like that's a big part of this one unfortunately.

There was still footage of him taking out guys non-lethally and there was that part mentioning that he's supposed to be non-lethal in whatever mission he's heading towards. Stealth is (probably) still very much part of the game, but unfortunately advertising stealth isn't as easy and doesn't drum up as much casual interest as INTENSE ACTION and POWERFUL DRAMA. It's probably more PR trying to get attention than this game turning into a more straightforward shooter.

Probably. Deus Ex hasn't had such a great history with even numbered sequels.

While all that is accurate, a new mechanic they've showed off quite a bit is the "hold up your gun and customize it", Crysis-style. Why would I need that when I'm 100% stealth/ghost?

Might just be yet another stealth game that gives people playing the game the intended way, stealth/ghost, 3 gadets, skill trees and mechanics throughout the game. While the other 30 flashy mechanics, skillt rees and features are created for the people who run and gun.

Like the awesome looking diamond skin skill. I won't need that at all, unless this game has forced boss battles.

Perhaps they want to convey the message that run and gun might actually be good in this game? Playing Deus Ex Human Revolution without any intention of going in stealthy is not a good idea. It's possible, sure, but it's not very well designed, and the game really just doesn't feel right unless you're trying to be more stealthy and creative about things. The customization could also be used for stealthier gadgets and non-lethal weapons, maybe?

Just trying to remain optimistic.

What's the over/under on a PC release for this?

Probably ain't going to happen.

Wasn't this the same trailer that was on the site before? I got excited thinking this was new or had release date info.

I didn't notice any differences. That was a pretty great trailer so I'll gladly watch it again, but I'd like to see a solid chunk of gameplay.

But yeah, this probably is the game I'm looking forward to most, although I'll probably just play it on my PS3.

I got 5FADW, on the bottom left. Thanks, Jeff!

Need more detail, dude.

Bloodborne was exclusive to PS4 because Sony published it. They paid for it. They thought it would move consoles. It probably did. They're not going to put it on PC. If by some miracle they do, it will be well into the PS4's lifecycle, or after the PS5 has some out.

Red Dead Redemption is a game that I find kinda boring, but that game does look very pretty. I'd probably buy it again just to see it running at 60FPS/1080p, and with some anti-aliasing. However, I seem to remember hearing that the game's coding is so messy and so stitched together that getting it ported would be a nightmare.

I don't see why FFXV and Kingdom Hearts III couldn't be on PC, though. Square has done it before and quite a few Final Fantasy games are already on Steam. While we're talking about Square, I'd like to see a solid, well-done string of ports of their 8 and 16 bit titles. I'd especially like to see the PSP versions of I-IV on there, and I'd like to see a version of Final Fantasy V and VI updated as well as FFIV on the PC. Specifically, one that doesn't have the terribly drawn, pastel look of the phone versions of those games. I'd also like to see the DS version of Chrono Trigger find a home on Steam. And FF Tactics: The War of the Lions (without framerate problems).

For the same reason that Bloodborne won't be on PS4, the Metroid Prime Trilogy won't be on PC. But holy shit, I would love to see that get a proper PC version that runs at a higher resolution, with some anti-aliasing and a lot of texture touching up. The visuals in those games simply need smoothing out and then they'd look stunning again. Some of the best art design I've ever seen, held behind low resolutions. At least they all run at 60FPS.

The rest of the Halo games and the Forza games. Microsoft isn't as averse to putting out PC versions of their games and I'd love to play the Master Chief Collection.

I've never heard of Tale of Tales or this game. And after watching this trailer... meh. Unimpressive.

I'm not against the sort of two-hour story-focused "not-games" that seem to make up every game that wears its arty intentions (whatever that means) on its sleeve, but this one just seems uninteresting. There's no "punch", so to speak. We just see pictures of an apartment and someone talking about watching a war that goes on outside while cleaning windows. Well, so what? This person appears to be using her vantage point to gather information for some resistance, and that's fine, but the trailer doesn't tell me anything about that. It seems to be advertising a game where you look out of windows at all the interesting stuff, while trying very very hard to make me feel something for the character I'm playing as. But what am I supposed to feel? Intrigue? I'd be intrigued if I were a spy in danger or a revolutionary soldier contemplating just what he's fighting for or something.

I don't mean to be one of those guys, but playing this with a mouse makes most of the zombie-only bits trivial. It's a pretty interesting twist when you have to worry about Nazis and zombies in the same battle, but the zombie-only bits are just "pull out assault rifle, aim for the head, tap once or twice, move on". Luckily, there are still a lot of nazis to shoot after you start shooting zombies.

I had a lot of fun with this DLC. Some of BJ's monologues toward the end are pretty great, but Alex is right, if you played The New Order for the story and didn't care much for the gameplay, this one's mostly gameplay. Exceptionally well-designed shooter gameplay, but still mostly gameplay.

You NEED to play Chrono Trigger. And probably FFVI. What's wrong with the older FF games?

Remember that little controversy where people were saying that Dark Souls II doesn't need an easy mode?

Turns out the original release of Dark Souls II was the easy mode.
