still not particularly optimistic about the game. it's a nice sounding preview snippet from GI but they are positive about every game they give a cover to it seems, so it doesn't do anything to sway me. keeping fingers crossed other upcoming previews are as positive.

This is one of my most anticipated games since it was announced. Can't wait to play this game.



I'm still a bit cautious about this one, but hoping to be pleasantly surprised on release. A lot will depend on using those nice swarms in fun and engaging ways.



Looks amazing

Hold on, they’re scrapping the name “freakers”?? Thank God! Now, here’s to hoping they also change the main character’s name. Deacon St. John sounds super cliche’ and like they were trying too hard to come up with a cool name. 

OT:  This is great news. I’ve been hopeful for this game, albeit cautiously. If Bend gives a truly good game here, Sucker Punch steps it up with GoT, and Dreams ends up as good as it has the potential to be, holy man, Sony’s first party will just be doing work.

I think the Freakers are the ones that hoard together and the Newts are the smaller versions. They're all known as 'the infected'.
