Wow I was right, it is Bioshock in space.

Some horrible shadows and jaggies in that video.

I believe they used to call that System Shock.

I never played the series before Bioshock ( i know.. i'm sorry), but with the menu and station names, it looks like Bioshock in space, instead of Rapture.

Was it Half Life that had the multiplayer hide and seek mod where you could hide as objects?

If they made a Trek game (has to be Trek license) with the different bridge stations like in Klingon Academy, had it multiplayer it would be a hit.

If you get to kill the IT guy from the 1st game I'll pre-order it NOW!

Trailer looks great, but how much of it was from in the game and how much was rendered cgi.

And that's my thing is the Co-op.

Steam is The Half Elf and Ubi is Cpt_Ranger
I'd love to get back into the Division.

Granted they have a year to work some things out, and like you said The Division isn't a bad game, but they really did fuck up the DZ and kept making it worse.

I was really hoping this wouldnt suck too, but if this is anything to go by you can kiss that hope good bye.

The guy is a bit of a whiner. He has some valid arguments but also a few that aren't. For example the whole 'bike/chair' thing. The guy is moving forward, switches to aimed 1st person view, is still moving while shooting. Hence why he's closer to the bike. We've been able to aim and move in games for how long now?

Metal Gear Solid isn't an open world. Same in the way that Witcher 3 isn't an open world. It has some very large maps but there is still a transition from mission area to mission area (in MSGV) and the same in Witcher 3 (granted they area huge areas), same also applies for say World of Warcraft (just all in the wording I guess, depends how nitpicky you want to be).

Graphics wise, they game looks good, does it looks OMG awesome?!? No, but typically the bigger the maps the less 'ohhhh shiny!' ya get.

Surprised they aren't using the cover system from The Division. Watching an elite military team crouch down in doorways is painful to watch. Or in the Ubi video how using a non-silenced weapon didn't alert everyone in the compound.
One thing The Division did really well was the AI. It would take cover, use abilities, flank you, etc quite well and I'd love to see it in this game.
All I am seeing is 'easy kill bad guys who don't do shit, and then chase down the target with vehicles'.

The proof will be in the full game when you go after the guy in the church (as shown in the 1st gameplay video) vs what it really is like in the actual game.

He seemed like such a likeable guy, always smiling in interviews and being so forthright in answering questions when showing off work in progress playable demos of the game that looked AMAZING!

Who would have guessed he was just another sleazy guy lying his ass off in order to create a false narrative to shill his game to the unsuspecting masses.

The small indie developers are suppose to be above such unscrupulous tactics, right?

I believe you're talking about Chris Roberts.

Then this would be his son/nephew.

Off the rails since he left?!?

I've tried playing Ground Zero/Phantom Pain, do I really need to see Kojima's name 800 times before I finish the game?

Was interested before that ya fucking idiot.

I haven't seen them attack each other, but I have been stalked by critters on land and sea.

I've also fed a few and made them pets and they have followed me around, or dug up resources for me.

But I have yet to see anything even remotly close to what is shown in the video's by Hello Games.

Performance wise, YES. But everything that was shown publicly was scripted out the ass.

I'd love to see a false advertising lawsuit against Hello Games, as I would say this is one of the larger 'Bait and Switches' since Aliens: CM.
