I'm a real human too!


But really, it does sound nice. Hope the story is solid, this kind of cinematic games live or die by the story, and no amount of graphical detail can change that.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

I'm definitely hyped for this game. I loved Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy and liked Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit so far looks like Quantic Dream's best game yet.

The box art is horrible though, lol.

I just hope the writing is better than previous games. I liked HR but cringed repeatedly at a lot of the cliqued lines peppered throughout. Cage is NOT a good writer by any stretch of the imagination and his focus on emotion leads to many scenes set up with the sole intention of creating some kind of emotional reaction. It's almost as if the narrative, characters, dialogue don't really matter; what matters is 'at the end of this section' I want people to cry or laugh. That is NOT how good writing works. It's the narrative, characters and dialogue that make any emotional payoff feel legitimate. I forever feel manipulated when playing a Cage game. 

Ugh, I hope this won't turn into a pointless battle on writing. :[]

It does take a lot of work to make a truly branching game, where the decisions have significant impact on the following events. I am interested to see how Detroit handles this.

It's unfortunate there does not seem there will be a collector's or even just limited or deluxe edition of this game. I don't really understand why Quantic Dream games are usually released barebones. At least, release an art book or something to go along with it.

Heavy Rain was such a surprise to me. I didn't play it until last year, but the game left a lasting impression on me. It stayed with me for weeks. It was a relatively short but very intense experience. I'd gladly take more experiences like that than games that boast "hundreds of hours" of gameplay, since we all know that those hours will be filled with filler and busy-work. At my age, I prefer quick intense experiences or short casual games like Mario Kart rather than long drawn-out filler-filled experiences.

Have high expectations, hope I won't be disappointed.

Loved HR, didn't really get so far in Beyond, but love AI and the issues that it'll bring, so really looking forward to it (the Channel 4 TV show Humans was a great taster for hopefully what this will cover).

Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

I'm going to wait for reviews to see if this is day one, or wait for sale :D Going to buy it eventually either way :P

Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

Looking forward to this game. I loved playing HR. Might get the deluxe version with HR included.

GIF time...


One interesting thing i have to point out about Detroit is the fact that David Cage is not the sole writer anymore. He has 2 other people writing it with him.
