I'll likely get this if it's finished on launch. It would be cool if CA could/SEGA would allow them to finally take their goddamn time they need to finish the game.

OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS AMAZING

Are these guys super depressed or did their pets die recently or something? Holy shit, had to turn it off, couldn't stand it.

The game looks like a chore, the way they played it makes it look like Gone Home, not Borderlands, and the oxygen mechanic sounds pretty goddamn stupid. But mainly, if people with emotions had demoed this, it would probably had looked better.

Well I can see why Brad hates these left trigger/right trigger games.

Some of these stories seem sort of legit. I do think about 99.9% of all "ghost stories" can be attributed to sleep paralysis, as it is pretty much exactly how it is. People generally say they know they were not sleeping to this, but if you have a "good" case of it you would not be able to tell the difference.

I've had numerous episodes of sleep paralysis, where the most terrifying ones are always in combination with having a high fever. I've had a 100% realistic experience of being sacrificed alive in my bed by some sort of priest that levitated me and that stabbed my heart, someone stealing my watch in front of my eyes which was a figure I didn't recognize (my watch was there when I woke up) and also plenty of occassions where I have been completely certain there is a figure standing in the doorway watching me, or in the room with me, or that someone is trying to break in to my apartment.

Most of the time it took me quite a while to process this - it is way more terrifying then what you could imagine - and in the priest one I was just not sure what the hell had happened. I knew it didn't happen, but the experience was so real it made me question my religious beliefs (I don't believe in any type of god) and if it was perhaps some sort of signal. It does usually take me a good hour or two to realize that this did not happen, I'm safe, and that it was, uh, just a dream.

On the ghost issue, I to this day am somewhat certain I had an experience as a kid. I was seven or something and doing my homework upstairs, and I had to get my eraser to fix some sort of error from my room. I went down there, my room was a bit dark (it was in the evening), saw it on my desk, and it just flew towards me. Like someone threw it to me. It scared the shit out of me and I just ran upstairs. I didn't know what had happened and I was too scared to tell my parents. Nothing big, not sure it happened, but it made me fear the dark as a child which I hadn't done before.

I feel like playing Dark Souls again, watching this. I do appreciate Vinny's completely careless approach to everything.

I really liked Bulletstorm, quite interested in Shadow Warrior now. Great QL of that!

Don't know how accurate the club experience is in regards to the drugs thing, but I can totally relate to the locked in-thing on the dancefloor. That's usually how I feel anyway, one with the crowd and the music, just zoned out, nothing else matters here and now, and just dancing and loving the shit out of the music (I don't really go to clubs unless I like the DJ/artist playing). Think it was illustrated decently.

Good trailer! I don't know if I dig the game however. I must say that I have never managed to do something stealthy though. As far as I've understood there's really no punishment for killing about 50 cops per mission (my average), and it gets a bit repetetive. It's extremely easy even on the heists that are supposed to be the most difficult at rank 12 or something around there, where I'm at. No challenge at all.

I had hoped you would get very punished for attempting to just brute force missions, but so far there are no downsides except that it isn't that much fun. The gunplay is allright, but shooting 50 cops in the head is not that hard and it is a bit ridiculous in the context.
