Diverse checkbox characters & Epic exclusive. lol, not looking promising. I remember when SR2 came out of nowhere and embraced fun whilst skilfully interweaving a darker, more serious tone throughout its story, it was a great alternative when GTA4 went full on realism back in the day. I don't know what direction this is supposed to be except off the nearest cliff tbh.

Shame it's not under the THQ Nordic label because Deep Silver is gonna slap Denuvo on it. I have a feeling they're gonna pull the same fuckery with Kingdom Come Deliverance 2.

How fucking hard is it for them to just emulate SR2's tone again? That was a perfect mix of dark humor and serious tone that works for this type of game. Instead we get this weird amalgamation of 3 and Agents of Mayhem. I just want that 2 PC update already...

Wow. Talk about not getting the franchise. That looks SO fucking wank.

The characters literally look so generic they seem like create-a-characters. Also it's coming in less than six months and literally has no gameplay footage.

Edit: Youtube reaction is negative. Only 1.5 more likes than dislikes (expect that to be underwater really quick), and comments all negative.

One of the questions raised in the roundtable with the game’s developers was that of cultural appropriation. The six people made available for interview were all middle-aged white men, creating a game set in a region where a significant proportion of the population is Latinx or Hispanic. Creative director Jim Boone said that diversity was important, and there was an explicit focus on making the team producing the game as diverse as the characters in it.

Rotten piece of garbage. And yes it looks exactly like that other trash Arkane is preparing.

From thugs to goofy thugs to soft-looking zoom zooms trying to LARP as thugs.

Steve Jaros and Drew Holmes were responsible for the bulk of the writing in 1-4 and they've both left the company.

Zoomers, man. The youngest Millennials are in their mid 20s now.
