So Syndicate is coming out soon, there is a Co-op demo out today. been mucking with it for the past half an hour. Controls aren't what i expected, but it seems okay.

Is out for Xbox 360 and PS3, so let's get some people together and play this demo. Cause it's hard as fuck by yourself.

Give me a name and i will add you to the list of people playing

Live:
Melding - Melding
Iron Weasel - Tanith 6227.

Other:

Plot stuff i guess?
2069: No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by mega-corporations known as syndicates. These syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. Since the consumer requires a device to access the world's data and control technology, they can do this in the blink of an eye via neural chip implant.

Civilians flocked to be "Chip'd" and enjoy all that their selected syndicate has to offer: housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle. In return, the syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behavior. With little government oversight, business has become war. The syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance.

At the first line of this war are the agents, the syndicate's bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired dataverse, including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world. Take on the role of Miles Kilo, EuroCorp's latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge

It's a fucking FPS. It looks okay, you should come play the demo with me, it is less then a gig.

    Wait, you can play it by yourself? Like you're totally on your own or they fill the other 3 players with bots?

    That awful bullshit moving HUD is a deal breaker.

    That HUD would do my head in over a long period of time

    and why does everyone from the future look like a punk rocker

    Yeah, Brink had so much potential. Got it day one, and it just ... wasnt good. Really bummed me out and I think its made me gunshy about games like this.

    I want this to be good.

    But damn that HUD is straight out of a nightmare.

    because it's a cyber punk game.

    That's what cyber punk looks like.

    that's why it's that.

    Wouldn't Matrix rejects be good, though?

    I'm digging the style and look of it.

    It's a shame this game has nothing to do with what it's named after other than that it is in the future and has guns

    I fucking love everything I've seen of this game so far, the hud, style, weapons, everything. Too bad there isn't a demo out for the PC but whatever, I can wait for the full game.

    @Darmak, you like that constantly moving and completely unreadable HUD?!?

    I get what they are trying to do and its a cool concept, but ugh, it gave me a headache within minutes just watching the video.

    it's a reboot. the co-op game is directly based on the original game. 9 of the 14 missions are taken from it.

    It's probably the most graceful thing someone could ask for other then a big well known strategy game company coming in and making a new strategy game out of it.

    But what are the odds of that?

    I dunno - it's got a bunch of gun-wielding lunatics running around slaughtering everything in sight at the behest of their shadowy corporate masters. It's not that far off, is it?

    I remember when this was a big "eyes only" kind of secret in development.


    I knew it would be crap even then. Hey look, I was right.

    But you work for The Man.

    The Man wears nice suits in cyberpunk unless he lives in a vat barely surviving.

    It's how you know he's evil.

    Of course, my favorite cyberpunk picture is Brandon Graham's depiction of Neuromancer

    Chops out all the traditional cyberpunk visuals. Nifty looking.

    Found it in an interview with him for something or other.

    Saved it immediately. I just noticed that Case and Molly are in the picture at normal scale if you look close. Pretty neat.
