    Melding is yelling at me to get this game

    I know nothing of it except that it has co-op

    Sell me on it

    But there's no good one-liners said during it. I prefer the Jesse Ventura minigun-style.

    hella missing the point

    Cyberpunk, ultra-capitalist dystopia, with solid awesome (in the classical sense) gun-play, an incredible aesthetic, and varied power choices.

    solid is a bit of an understatement

    How is the coop organized in this?

    Is it like, something one could play in short bursts?

    Not like a big long whole thing we'd want to do all at once?

    Also if it is long winded, does it have any split screen?

    It helps that the scene where they first give you the minigun is just the perfect setup for "TIME TO TEAR SHIT UP."
    Just seeing them start to burn through the door, minigun revving in anticipation. Just a perfect little "that's right, come and get it" moment, made even better because they're acting like they've got you cornered and out-matched.

    The fact that the minigun is a gib-dispenser definitely helps as well.

    Oh yeah the setup for when you get the minigun is super sweet

    so far my only real complaint is that it doesn't seem like you get to play with the super-cool guns for long enough

    like, I had the gauss rifle for like half a level and I haven't seen it since!

    But still

    game rocks

    Yeah okay I guess I will see about picking this up with my next paycheck

    It is certainly looking like a game that will be enjoyable.

    judging from where it has cropped up since, it will make a return when it will be useful

    this game is so carefully thought out, i am intensely impressed

    I'm down

    man I really should write about stuff like this

    but my stuff is always mainly about gameplay and how a game feels to play rather than, like, games as art stuff

    so I feel like I'm just being all boring

    You can hack grenades?!? Oh boy.

    Also, man, this game's world has a lot of character. I love it.

    yeah. the lore is like 'the chips in grenades are famously shitty, so you can almost do it automatically'

    Yeah. It doesn't really feel challenging, though, more just unfun.

    I don't wanna spoil it but basically it does one of my least favorite things in a boss fight (and I'm not really a fan of boss fights anyway, so)

    why they would start manufacturing wifi-enabled grenades with easily disabled chips controlling the explosive is another question

    the implication is that you are the state of the art and that grenades are manufactured by dudes who are not expecting to go up against Super Techno Agents but rather corporation-on-corporation PMC-esque land wars

    Ahahahah that's great.

    Y'know.... this game has me really immersed. It's weird. My first reaction to a scientist or some other civilian seeing me is to brutally murder them because they've seen my face and that just won't fly.

    I feel like the guys in the beginning of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Y'know, the bosses.

    It's an interesting experience.
