well, they said that guns are really rare in hk and that most of the time you have no choice but to either sneak up on guys with guns or h2h guys without them
now I want to see the valve-inspired clothing
Does anyone know if there will be random street crimes like the old True Crime games?
Preordered this from intkeys ( I will be away on the release date anyways, so I can wait a day or two)
This is looking even better than I hoped
I'm so glad Square Enix revived this game.
i hope the pre-load comes soon
its been on warez sites for days which makes me wonder why steam hasn't released it yet (the pre-load, not the game)
I just saw when this game gets released, you damn bastards, my vacation ends exactly on the 14th hnng.
Being able to stop crimes wouldn't make any sense in the context of the setting and story. Undercover cops don't cruise around looking for random crimes to stop.
Edit: How does the setting of the story give the main character the ability to leap onto cars at 90mph?
Edit Again: Also there are some street crimes more suited to an undercover cop. Like drug deals and what not.
Actually, most undercover cop movies deal with the issue in some form. Pure action movies that have the hero go "undercover" don't count.
Besides, why the hell would any of the gang-members care, you act as if everyone in the crime world is caring dearly about each other, but in reality, you can go around and kill damn near anyone you want and no one is going to give a shit, as long as it doesn't interfere with the gang's business.
I really like the idea of helping major police cases though, finding ways to conceal your identity from people you know in the triads like keeping them in the trunk of the car.
I know that's the whole point of the game, but that example felt like you could actually let the guy out of the trunk if you wanted to, and makes me wonder what the consequences are for accidentally or deliberately messing up like that.
Also it's a Hong-Kong-action-movie setting, so leaping from car to car at 90 MPH is pretty much expected.
or am I confused, he said 1 Day DLC, if I remember correctly?
I also wonder if Square will add all the DLCs to Steam like they did with Deus Ex Human Revolution.
It'd be interesting to see if that were the case.
I saw a stream last night that showed a bit of the game.
The streamer was godawfully stupid and annoying, but I do take back what I said about the h2h combat. The streamer may have sucked ass at fighting, but the kinda off balance and weird vibe I got from it made more sense because of the amount of action going on.
Now I just need to figure out where I want to pre-order...I really do want the Georges St. Pierre stuff, but I've always pre-ordered from Gamestop...decisions.
Open world cop drama?
John Woo style action?
I just noticed that, in the PC showcase video, the guy says that "the game has DX11 features like ambient occlusion, anti-aliasing, shadow quality and filtering." and that "These optional DX11 features can be turned off." Which is very worrying to someone like me that's still stuck with a DX10 card, and I'm pretty sure that literally all of those should be DX10 compatible.
I appreciate that they're giving the PC some lovin', but that's still silly if they're limiting those features to DX11.
-snip- wrong thread
Just pre-ordered this game. I cannot wait until it comes out. The hand to hand fighting style really reminds me of Yakuza.
