EDIT: come on rb_man you can do better than that to get your first. I got mine the valid way son!

Make a multiplayer Uplink, and then you have my interest in cooperative video game hacking locked down.

@Jayzilla: I would rather comment after I watch the video so I can say some thing that has relevance to the video. :P

This might be one of the rare times where I pick up the game day 1. I've liked what I've seen so far.

Man that is some first-person-ass first-person shooting.

What's with some modern shooters and the whole HUD bobbing business. It doesn't make your game engaging or "cinematic", it's just flat out distracting. It was especially annoying in Crysis 2 but it gave you the option to tone it down so I'll cut it some slack.

I do dig the art style though.

There's a lot of HUD shit on that screen. Hope that gets cleaned up before release.

That god damn M-COM station siren

I gotta hand it to em, you can't do that in Deus Ex HR.

So so - the single player stuff they showed off flowed a lot better and wasn't just emptying clips into baddies.

Seems like this could be pretty decent. Jeff seems to be giving it some praise anyway. I will keep an eye on this one I suppose.

I agree, this video doesn't apear to do the game justice. There's no demonstration of the stuff that supposedly makes this FPS stand out from the crowd. If this was the only footage of the game I had seen, I would write it off as a generic shooter. That said, I understand that game companies these days like to highlight different things in different videos etc.

Reminds me of Brink for some reason.

Alright the smg fps shooting is a bummer but they at least hint at heavy weapons in this video.

Needs more wobble bass

Getting strong Mirror's Edge vibes from the sliding. Doesnt help that the featured level looks like it could have been pulled straight from the game. Looking forward to this

Yes exactly. What I forgot to mention was that it looked like less experienced or creative people were demo-ing this. There was no sliding, hacking of people and or turrets. From what I understand theres a fair bit of parkour style movement in this game in addition to environment interaction via "hacking" - which I barely saw any of in this video.

Just think back to when you where playing Syndicate on your PC and someone tells you.

"In 2012 they will make a first person shooter game with the Syndicate franchise and they will make it primarily for consoles..."

Would you have believe them?

Posted by Tebbit

While that looked kinda generic, I think the whole "get points for doing stuff, and having it pop up on your screen" style of game design fits perfectly into the Syndicate world. I'm interested to see where they take the franchise.

Regenarating health: Check

In game hud: Check

Main gun with fast draw side arm: Check

Generic enemies with Tank enemies: Check

Revive downed team mates: Check

Same sound effects for every machine gun: Check

Focus on head shots: Check

Another first person shooter I was excited for, but as I saw more I realized it's every other first person shooter: Check

ooh they kept the original music

That HUD man.

That HUD.

Posted by tmj

I know there have been rumblings about if this game was 'a thing' since back in like 2008 but I'm amazed at how 'done' it looks.

Also, considering EA only officially announced it in Sept it seems pretty damn speedy for it be released in Feb. I'm in for sure.

Posted by masterpaperlink

I just realised, im totally burnt out on fps.

Posted by BroadswordOfTheSpirit

Cautiously excited about this. Looks pretty cool, I'm hoping it turns out better than the last game I was cautiously excited about (Brink :( ).

That minigun guy took way too many bullets to take down.

Poor poor Syndicate.

Shooting extremely generic guns in an incredibly generic FPS coop.

Even in the cyber punk future you still have to shoot lots of dudes in the face.

I hope so, liked the look of the single player stuff more than this multiplayer though.
