I’ve mentioned it before and now I’m mentioning it again.

Three things are making me very excited for this:

1) I’ve played a bit. It was top stuff.
2) David Cage isn’t the only writer on this game (thank fucking Christ).
3) This new video gave me goosebumps.



Get on the hype train choo choo.

Urgh, that subtitle is fucking heavy handed though, Jesus. I bet that was David Cage’s doing...

How does the game mechanic work? Are you literally just making choices every few seconds? How many branches are there? It seems like an excellent concept, but pretty limited in longevity.

Hello! I am playing this. I am loving it to bits.

I especially love menu lady and North (played by your girl Lyla Fucking Garrity).

God's tits, it looks fantastic.

I didn’t finish Heavy Rain and the hamfisted slavery parallels put me off.

Shame as I enjoyed Fahrenheit despite the bonkers ending. I just don’t think these games are for me anymore.

I keep reading things like this. They're literally slaves*! I don't know why people are so surprised.

I'm liking the story, but then he's only part of a writing team so maybe that helps.

I've not played any of the others, so I can't really judge Cage.

Also "what if humans made artificial life forms then enslaved them" is a trope that's older than Asimov. The very word "robot" comes from the Czech word "robota" meaning "forced labour." [1] This isn't new, edgy, controversial ground for scifi to explore.

I've played and completed Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit. I find Cage fascinating, he whiplashes between really interesting really clumsy so fast it makes my head spin. The sex scene in Fahrenheit is by a wide margin the cringiest thing I've ever seen in a game. And yet I completed it? So there's something in his work that compels me. But I'm not sure I can justify it.

I've also played Fahrenheit and ripped through it in a single sitting, but that was 13 years ago when narrative games and the QTE events that makeup most of the 'gameplay' were in their infancy so I'm not judging anything by that.

Parts of Heavy Rain were sort of enjoyable at the time--the gruesome trials were certainly compelling--but a lot of the writing and characterisation was clumsy as shit.

Then we get to Beyond: Two Souls which was just...urgh. Either he's getting worse or my tolerance of his bullshit has degraded (or possibly both) but I'm done with his shite.

I've ripped through this in a couple of days and it was absolutely brilliant. Love the feature where at the end of each chapter you can see what choices all the players in the world made and what choices your friends made.

Say what you want about David Cage games (and let me say this first, FUCK ME his writing is hamfisted and heavy handed, even in this game where character traits are as nothing more than “me angry man. Me say fuck a lot. Me give exposition dumps about me single feeling that makes me me. And me angry so me be angry”) but there was something in that Kara/protect the child mission that had me fighting my joypad (and a fuckton if QTEs) to win. There was no way I was letting that ape win.

These games really do suffer from being too much of an interactive drama though and I’m really disappointed Detroit hasn’t shown any signs whatsoever of being any better in the gameplay department than Heavy Rain. It’s basically been the same game mechanically. I’m only about 4-5 scenes in though and although I’m already invested in the story I’m a wee bit annoyed that the gameplay is basically split into two segments: an investigation/piss about section where you chat and fumble with objects highlighted in a Batman, actually, sorry Heavy Rain, detective mode and then a an action sequence that’s done with QTEs. And that appears to be your lot. Will it change though? I doubt it.

Still, I’m investing in sex robots because come (fnaar fnaar) 2038 I’m being sodding rich. Also, Kara is best you dumb dumbs. Mind you, I haven’t met any others yet...

I’ve met all the gal pals now.

I still reckon Kara is my jam though. Mind you, it’s annoying that some characters pronounce it CAR-A and some KARRH-A.

So I finished it and somehow managed to get the Good Ending without much effort.

I saved everyone and got a trophy for doing so despite getting Jerry unceremoniously murdered at the end. Obviously the game doesn’t give two shits about Jerry. I couldn’t even remember who he was.

I noticed that there’s plenty of different routes too so I just wonder how differently playthroughs could play out. Turns out I’m the only one on my list of 3 friends who played it that managed to get this ending too. That was cool. Stats are fun.

That twist though?

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
It was a child droid!?


Really missed the mark with me and that was the one story I was really into. Besides the fact that Luther kept hinting something was up and Kara refused to even listen to him (that was irritating), it’s never explained why the dad would have such a child. Unless I missed something obvious here. Anyone?

Cool game though.








Oh and Shag Chloe, Marry Kara and kill North. Natch.

His wife really wanted kids, they got a robot (the leaflet was in his bedroom), then she died and he's left with the kid.

Her and Luther got machine gunned halfway across the river for me, I was gutted.

I assumed the same too but I just don’t think they did a very good job with that side of the story.

I never even went to the river!

At least you didn’t get endings 1 or 2 from this video. https://youtu.be/Y0WmadpFCL8 I’d have been blubbering like a baby. They’re even difficult to watch!

Ok, erm, some say “car”-a and some say kah-ra.

I can’t remember what scene it was (one with Luther, I think) but two characters pronounce her name differently one immediately after the other. Anyway, I’m sure it’s a thing. Honest.

Car and kah still sound pretty much identical when I say them. What do they rhyme with in your ears?

I've never heard either speak, but I imagine it's the bath/bath or grass/grass pronunciation difference.

So basically, regional accents.
