    Both main leads are black. You'd think this is a nigerean game.

    And why are they using Death Proof aesthetics of a damaged film reel in a game called Deathloop?

    That looks super fucking intriguing. Not entirely sure what they're going to do with it, but I'm hoping it'll be something like an entire game with the vague gimmick of Prey Mooncrash, where the map is semi-randomized between runs and actions in previous runs can impact future runs and shit. Probably D1P simply because Arkane hasn't made a bad game yet and if they are trying to expand on some of the Mooncrash weirdness that could be really cool.

    It's not a simulation, it's a deathloop :)

    They spoiled the entire game when they named it "Deathloop" but they could not miss the chance considering the unanimous praise for Mooncrash. They simply cannot.

    It looks like Prey was their silver lining.

    Pass; the gameplay looks boring.

    To me the trailer implies an environment (and possibly even story—if any) reminiscent of Valve's Portal; but as a straight up deathmatch with respawns written into the fiction.

    Pass

    Arkane used to be great—in the pre-Zenimax days; especially for Arx Fatalis.

    Trailer is cool but I doubt it’ll make a good game.

    Sounds like a fun co-op to play
    Basically you and your gf try to kill each other other to decide who's doing dishes next week.

    They said designed levels, so it's not randomly generated. Could still have elements of that though, of course. How roguelike it is and how online it is are the questions for me too, since I don't like either. I hate when they announce games and don't even tell you what fucking genre they are.

    Why not? As long as they keep level design king this could turn out to be cool.

    Yeah, when I've read about this game while commuting, I was wondering how codex will react. It did not disappoint :salute::lol:
    Even more butthurt will come from storyfags, I guess, if they push the mooncrash ideas even harder (as per post-mortem that was posted in Prey thread)

    It will probably get review-bombed by the anti-nagger crowd and people who want to play "story mode"
    I guess it'd be like Mooncrash - same overall "skeleton" with blocked passages / environment hazards / randomized enemies tossed in. Not so sure if it fits 'big game' mode though, considering how much attention average "gamer" and "journalist" pays to the race, San Andreas is an SJW game story and ignores mechanics / game systems.

    It's... a shooter with modern guns and some parkour so I'm not expecting anything, especially since Dishonored sucked.
