I'm avoiding a good number of these things, so let me ask all you people that have been watching these leaks: how do you feel about the pedestrian count? I'm hearing talk from people saying the streets are shockingly barren, and that's concerning me.
Starbreeze is having a hell of a year. Payday 2 is awesome despite what some people on a website about video games might say, and I haven't played Brothers but I bet it's just as good as everyone says.
@believer258: Well, there isn't really much friendly AI. If one of your character is about to die, the game says "hey this person's about to die either go help them or switch over to them and fuck shit up".
I have my profile set to Chicago, and I have the zip code set, but the times on the Upcoming have been set to Eastern time for a couple weeks now. The ticker at the top of the page is still correct, but I've missed most of live streams because of it, and the constant uncertainty if that's the real time or I have to do the math is starting to get kinda irritating.
The QLEX got me real excited for this, but there's one thing I'm really curious to hear about that I don't think anything has been said on: does this have any replayability? I love XCOM because you can, like in Civ, play "a game of XCOM". There's a beginning, a couple beats along the way, and an end, but everything in between will be completely different every time. Have they said if The Bureau will be anything like that? The impression I get is that the entire game is a set progression of scripted missions that will all be the same every single time you play it. Maybe I'm missing some information where they talk about procedural generation or randomization.
