So, is the whole game on that rooftop or what?

I should hope not!

Looks pretty good and its another experience. I had a general feeling that the Sony lineup was pretty mature, but they have something for everyone.

Will probably pick up heavy rain/ beyond two souls before this on ps4 and give them a proper go.

This looks pretty good, but then again so did Heavy Rain and Beyond. Fingers crossed Cage had gotten over his Hollywood dreams and had actually made a fun game this time.

Loved Heavy Rain, thought Beyond was abysmal outside certain scenes (peaked with the homeless section).

This could go either way, though I thought the trailer at E3 was a regression of what we've seen previously.

Oh dear. This is...not looking good. The dialogue in that trailer was beyond cringeworthy and the theme has been done to death a million times before.

A shame.

Hostage negotiation scene in full.



Apparently that's one of 5 or 6 outcomes.

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

Help I want to argue in defence of Detroit as videogames can be so much more than just things you play for trivial fun and should be respected as any other medium is (like film or literature).

But I just know its going to be poorly handled in Detroit and not a good example of that at all

Games can 100% be serious discussion pieces that involve grave issues and situations.

David Cage's games are not those games.

Saying that, I am really looking forward to the critical mauling this is inevitably going to receive.

Get your bingo cards ready.

Spaces can include:
-Creepy shower scene
-Creepy sex scene
-Creepy rape scene
-A shower/sex/rape scene instigated by an android
-White android guilt tripping a black man over slavery
-Chapter devoted to 'bad' android uprising as opposed to the good one
-Androids are actually modified humans
-Weird spiritual bullshit that doesn't fit but is there anyway
-Hobos are the only good people in society
-Absurdly spacious apartments (not counting the hostage scene from trailer)
-The big twist completely invalidates the game up to there or retroactively makes no sense
-There is a remote android shut down that for some reason isn't used for most of the game
-The game starts off good, then gooseberry fools the bed at 56% and it's like flipping a switch
-One of the human characters is revealed to be a more advanced android, but even he isn't aware
-There will be a bit where a character discusses being attracted to androids in a weird homosexuality analogy
-Deemed 'ok' (6-8) by critics, mainly due to the graphical prowess QD has in spite of the rumours. Sells well enough
-Wise/mystical racist minority character
-Abilities change as the plot demands
-Action setpiece scene that has nothing to do with anything
-UNDERWATER CHINESE GHOST BASE! (I doubt it, but it's stupid enough for 2 games)
-French voice actors putting on bad American accents
-Self insert as 'Award winning director David Cage' for Heavy Rain based film, or other ego stroking

I'll think of the last few when I actually make my card, but I think it's safe to assume the free spot will be "Oops, I made ze bad game".

The release is a good surprise - so there will now be two triple-A PlayStation games released in succession. If I was boss I would l leave a bigger space than a month so each game has room to ‘breathe.’

Met. That sounds like a pre-determined list of complaints. Perhaps some of them might be valid based on expected storytelling tropes. But it’s also a reflection that a vocal minority delight in slamming a game based, not on gameplay, but on how a game doesn’t conform with their own specific socio-political values.

They're more expectations from the 4 of his other games which have been trash fires from a storytelling perspective if you stop and think about it for more than 2 seconds.

And for Cage, the gameplay IS the story.

Friendly reminder that not even David Cage himself knows what this trainwreck of a story is going to be about.



Can't wait to see Matt, Pat and Woolie tear into this 'game' when it comes out.

I liked Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit so I’m pretty sure I’ll be playing this. The reaction to it is mildly disappointing, but that’s gamers for you.

Of Cage’s other games I have only played Heavy Rain - to me it’s a little masterpiece. Before it’s release I had concerns that it would be a QTE button masher, and anybody that says it is would be making a fair comment. But why it worked so well and resonated was because of the story and how deeply it could make you feel. Guilt, sadness and some genuine moments of fear! The part where I was in control of the woman who was hiding from an intruder - amazing! The story is the game, and it is a balancing act with gameplay elements. Reviews of Betond Two Souls were critical, but in Heavy Rain Cage made a game that was a hit that still generates sales today.


I’m expecting there will be websites like Polygon and Kotaku that will focus on the elements they disagree with politically, as is there right. Detroit might be good, it might be bad. I will share my thoughts with the forum after I’ve played it.
