Okay I think my friend wrote the best parody of this article. lol
I think it misses all the marks of being a current gen dating sim. First off, its 1 girl and 3 guys you can choose from. What if I dont like the girl? Im stuck with her. The customization is terrible, I cant even pick the eyebrow color. But getting past that part, the game just doesnt have any dialog for you to even pick. You just meet a small robot named Claptrap and a guy missing an arm and a leg. Not a great amount of choices there.... Overall, I couldnt get past 2 hours into the game. It was just full of violence, the characters did not look like humans and I couldnt even get claptraps number. If you like this game, more power to you, but Ill be playing sims online and getting real girl's numbers.
I have a couple of free keys to Defense Grid (and DLC) that I'm giving away (I got them through the Kickstarter campaign for DG2). Reply to this or comment if you're interested, I'll look through the next day or so and send them out. Good luck.
