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'.

Dammit! How are they sticking with that name after so many people have laughed at and criticized it! Such poor judgement actually worries me about the rest of the game.

Deacon St. John is a cool name though....... and you have a thing for names don't you? Apparently that seems to be all you have seen of the game so far.

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.

Same here..... this game will thrive or die on its mechanics and characterization alone. Lets see how it goes.

I've not seen people laughing at or criticizing the name o.O I don't really see a problem with it anyway, if you said that name to me, I'd instantly think biker dude, which is what he is, lol

Yeah, I have. It looks mostly good, and I’m holding onto hope. But my favorite thing about games is story and characters/dialogue, and I worry about that part of the game. Some of it seems very cheesy so far (e.g. the names “freakers” and Deacon St. John), and I’m not crazy about how heavily they’re leaning into the biker gang thing.

Really? I’ve heard numerous people make fun of the name “freakers”, including multiple video podcasts/personalities (e.g. Greg Miller/KFG, Podcast Beyond). And I immediately thought it sounded dumb when I first heard it.
