    I think the trailer was fine btw. They're trying to stand out in a world of grimdark post-apocalyptic games.

    Seems I have a higher tolerance for trailers than other people around here though so maybe I'm the one who's fucked up

    It screams like they are trying to imitate DO:S, even in the humour part. terrible.

    Felt like I was watching a trailer for a grittier Harvest Moon reboot or something.

    D:OS didn't have humoristic trailers though, even if the games had a lot of "humor"

    Every trailer got applause and cheers except this one. There is a reason for that. I’d only release a trailer like that for a comedy game.

    Waaay overboard with the humor, but otherwise an expected trailer.

    Looks more interesting than Cyberpunk or Outer Worlds for the gameplay premise alone.

    I have a lot of patience for this stuff, but that trailer was fucking terrible. Fargo doesn’t trust that there’s an audience for this kind of game and it shows.

    In Cyberpunk, the game plays you!

    Yeah, the trailer feels like it's targeting Fortnite players.

    tbh, it's probably incredibly hard to make a trailer for a top-down turn-based game that's entertaining and flashy enough to warrant being on stage at the XBOX show or whatever

    Wasn't Wasteland 3 kickstarted? This change in tone is... dubious at best, considering who paid for it.

    Which world is that? What I'm seeing recently is a world of Fallout 4, New Dawn and Rage 2 - postapo games that are goofy, garish, juvenile and dumb. It's grimdark that'd actually stand out.

    The trailer got me confuse. Was just left absent mindedly blinking at the screen for a few seconds.

    The vast majority of the Fig money came from investors, who've got to be quaking in their boots after the news of Deadfire's 32% RoI. They'd probably be thrilled if inXile announced a battle royale mode and a few eroge minigames.

    With their solid business acumen, I'm sure they'll release it one day after Cyberpunk is out.

    Cute trailer but the graphics looked really rough in that trailer to me for some reason. Maybe because I was watching on wifi downstairs though, I dunno.

    Most entertaining outcome: co-op mode keeps getting delayed until the release version and comes out with no prior public testing :shittydog:

    They're overdoing it with the Scotchmo "funny stuff".
    Well at least they still plan to have "RPG" dialogues with skills checks. Yeah!

    Looks a lot better than WL2, didn't like how goofy they made the game in the trailer since even Obsidian is going for it but still hope the game itself will be good.

    I don't get it.

    Do these zoomers like post-apocalyptic RPGs with the art style of Far Cry Blood Dragon? Because that's what the trailers show.
