I felt bad for how hard they had to work just to have a female protagonist but the moment I saw the gameplay I had a feeling I wasn't going to want to buy it for myself.
Capcom didn't make it. DONTNOD did. Capcom merely published it when countless other publishers literally refused because it had a female lead character, and supposedly those don't sell.Random Argument Man said:AH! That title!
It's sad that it's a forgettable game. I foresee that Capcom will use its excuse "Female leads don't sell video games" to justify the sales if they're poor. It's never "We made a bad game".

Well if a reviewer you mostly agree with doesn't like a game, it's generally a good indication that you won't enjoy it, and will be a waste of $60. For me personally, if I spend $60 on a game, I expect to love it. Otherwise it's just best to get it on a Steam sale, and to save the money for something else. I'll still get the game, just much later and much cheaper.MattAn24 said:...Why do people instantly and blindly believe everything a reviewer says as law?

from what ive seen of the game the writing and voice acting is total shite, and the detailed environments mean you have to be lead through them like a dog on a lesh because they lack good enough game design. but that just from what i have seen of gameplay and such.RipVanTinkle said:So the game is commended for its:
You've hit what annoys me most about the premise right on the head, who in their right minds develops a system where other people can change your memories? That's rather more important than a computer being hacked.Ultratwinkie said:I don't understand the logic in the story.
If a sen-sen can get hacked, why did everyone adopt it in the first place? Memory changing? Drugs and alcohol do that just fine, why does that warrant an expensive surgery? Hell, even people in Ghost in the Shell didn't all get cyber brains.
And on top of that, why does the sen-sen make everyone turn into a junkie? Its like those strange prohibition propaganda where alcohol will cause everyone to be an alcoholic and society will collapse.
As a side note, every time I hear someone say some futuristic city name like "Neo-Paris" I immediately think of the robotic ghost of Christmas future from Aqua Teen and "Robo-France 29 in the year 9595." Might as well get him to narrate it too.
Then again, I may be completely wrong when I get around to purchasing the game, in which case, I'll be disappointed, but it isn't the end of the world. I tend to be very apologetic to a game's mechanical flaws and more appreciative of an overall concept and story. But that's just me.wolf thing said:from what ive seen of the game the writing and voice acting is total shite, and the detailed environments mean you have to be lead through them like a dog on a lesh because they lack good enough game design. but that just from what i have seen of gameplay and such.RipVanTinkle said:So the game is commended for its:
I think it'd have been better with a more Deus Ex approach. Fairly linear overall, but with multiple paths to take during each scenario that allows for re-playability. So perhaps you can take the violent approach, or if you want you can go down the memory hacking route and so on.Tenmar said:Anyone else thought this would of been a better game if they went in the path of Heavy Rain? Honestly for all the hype and controversy to which was the doing of the developers themselves, they only have themselves to blame. This was their DEBUT game as a development team and the first moment of controversy they went hollering. I certainly side with them as the choice of what gender and such should be made by them and not the publisher but honestly there really is no focus aside from the concept to which you really can't do anything about.
I mean the setting still has potential but as much as I love brawlers I mean even THE BOUNCER by Squaresoft gave players more to do than simply pressing X and Y and then dodging.
