Poll: Will Detroit have white tank top and panties? (282 votes)

Yes. David Cage has mastered the art of white tank top and panties, he won't miss an opportunity to show it on a new console. 97%
No. David Cage is an artful human being who doesn't repeat himself. 3%

There has been multiple staples of questionable quality present as a common theme in every single Quantic Dream game and one of them is what I believe to be one of David Cage's fetishes artistic messages - the white tank top and panties. Here are some examples:

Omikron: The Nomad Soul
Omikron: The Nomad Soul
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy
Heavy Rain
Heavy Rain

Beyond: Two Souls apparently was the first time Cage's rule of white underwear was broken, with Ellen Page's character wearing colored underwear and a t-shirt (haven't played Beyond, there might be an actual white tank top hidden in the game, could it be a secret easter egg?).

Beyond: Two Souls
Beyond: Two Souls

So what do you think? Will the white tank top and panties come back for Detroit: Become Human?

Full disclosure: nothing in this publication is supposed to be taken seriously and Fahrenheit is my favorite game from Quantic Dream, even with it's flaws.

Even if they're not back in the traditional white-tank-top-and-panties sense, I'm sure there'll be some kind of equivalent (boyshorts and a car company t-shirt, etc.), like in Beyond.

Yes I'm sure Kara will be nude at some point.

I'm sure it will be there, but when are we going to get beefcake?

I really love that we have an overly self-serious, completely unaware and incompetent buffoon directing a studio to make games. Its like the industry's own Adam Sandler.

I was going to include this video too, but the gif was more related to the theme of the post.

@demoskinos: And it's probably going to be on a shower scene.

@slang_n_bang: If Fahrenheit can have a sex scene with a zombie, I think Detroit can have a sex scene with a cyborg too. Let's hope so!

Did anyone watch the trailer? She's in a white bra and panties within the first 30 seconds or so lol. It's not a tank top, but it's close enough

This is basically the android equivalent of a white tank top and panties, right?

And miss out on the PS4's lifelike white tank top and panties physics?

@conmulligan& @babychoochoo: If we examine Cage's rule of white underwear closely (starting at Fahrenheit) we can see that, in every game so far, the scenes happened on the character's own apartment, took place either before or after a shower and the top part of the clothing covered more than a bra. With this in mind, I don't know if that scene applies.

But if there's not a scene following Cage's rule of white underwear in the final version of Detroit, I'll accept that scene as close enough.

I wonder if we'll be treated to French voice actors doing American accents. Some parts in Heavy Rain still pop up in my mind when I think of stuff like that.

I love how that trailer told me absolutely nothing about the gameplay.

I mean, I'm not gonna be surprised to see QTEs in there, but man... these games need some sort of good gameplay hook to grab me.

OT: Yeah, probably. Dude just seems obsessed with it.

What still comes back to me is Ryan Davis doing his imitation of the French VAs doing American accents.

Sorry, English is not my native language. I was going to use "underwear", it's probably a better term, but wanted to make a clear distinction about what's being discussed. After all, we're talking about one of the key elements of a David Cage game!

@sravankb: it's a quantic dream game, so if you're looking for non-qte gameplay then keep looking...

It was already in the trailer.

It's weird that robots are built with underwear on in the factory. Why do they have to inherit our incredibly stupid bashfulness about our bodies? Also I hate the word panties.

Every artist have a signature, a minor detail that you see repeatedly in every work s/he produce. Looks like you have found David Cage's signature.

How dare you not take David Cage seriously. He is an artist. He is the Citizen Kane of video game narrative.

AN ARTIST

As an android being built, isn't the act of being constructed and the facility it is being constructed in close enough to a shower and their own apartment?

@seanfoster: One post into this thread and I was just waiting for that to get posted.

Maybe we'll get both at the same time! Think about the possibilities! French actors doing terrible American accents... in their panties!
