Binary Domain Demo

The Binary Domain Page on Steam has a playable demo for this squad-based shooter that was actually released a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Frans for rescuing this from falling through the cracks). Here's an overview of the game: "Set in 2080, the story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake. Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success."

Thought it looked ok (by no means great), but the Total Biscuit video totally killed any interest for me.

The mouse controls in particular seemed wonky. Almost like instead of doing mouse controls, they basically mapped gamepad movement to the mouse. IE, the camera would turn faster and faster, the closer you moved the mouse to the edge of the screen (not unlike how some console FPS games accelerate camera movement as you push the stick further in a given direction). As a result, if you moved the mouse too far, you got these wild camera fits as it spun around in a circle at several hundred miles an hour.

Between that, and extremely clunky dialogue that felt right at home in the first resident evil game (AKA, who translated this shit?), it would have to be a $5 steam purchase at this point.

edit: Oh, and TB said the tutorial was an hour long and was easily the most boring part of the game. So if you do buy it (god help you), expect to play more than an hour before things get interesting.
