in front of your screen
They are focusing way too much on the "millennial" nonsense, NOBODY LIKES MILLENNIALS not even millennials lol. Some are upset that they think it's "overly woke" because every main character on your team is a minority (in America at least) but the main character can be whatever you want him/her to be. It didn't help that the only white guy in the CGI trailer was a bad guy but I'm sure there are a lot of people of other skin tones who could say they've seen more than a few movies where the only people who looked like them were bad guys.

I hope it's fun, at first I thought that we had t play as that female character in the trailer because the actress who voiced her said she plays "The Boss" but in reality she's only 1 of 8 options we'll have for voices, once they cleared up I was mostly fine with it. I need to see more uninterrupted gameplay, the game comes out in 5 months so hopefully they show more than a bunch of quick cut stuff soon and that'll make it easier to judge.
Did the baddy have a British accent, that’s like +15 charisma

I've got no issue with what I've seen. Can't wait.

Same. I mean I wouldn't say I consider it all a home run either, but I don't think it's any more "cringe" or corny than SR has always been. This is just a different kind of cheesy, over-the-top stuff they've always done. People are acting like the cast from the original games were the definition of cool, but they were just as lame as anything on display in the reboot so far as I can tell. I'm interested in the game just based on it being a modern day, open world action game with coop...

So the group are a bunch of woke students



And now the devs are arguing with fans on twitter. This is going to be another Agents of Mayhem

Perfect early 2022 was already packed.
Yeah it didn't stand a chance in it's original release date, this will give them some time to get away from the negative reception the debut received and hopefully get the game in better shape visually.

Regardless of how the game turns out, the memes have been worth it lol.


The Musculinity level is below my acceptable treshold. Hard pass.

On a serious note, the whole "you can relate too", & "character that represent you" is cringy worthy. There is a reason Hollywood movies still sell well to Oversea markets where most people are cultural different & looks different. I love Batman, but I am sure not a billionare playboy from a big American city, & have a sic pack.

People just love good characters, good setting. Fun game. People that "Looks like you" or "relate to you" are nice to have, but it shouldn't be the focus, & often make no sense at all, epecially when your game are, were base on whaky over the top characters.

It's just ego driven nonsense, honestly when I play a game with a character creator I never make the character look anything like me. Often I make them another ethnicity, give them darker hair and eyes etc, why do I want to play a game as myself when I already have to be me 24/7? lol.

That customization trailer just sold me. Volition should make a Cyberpunk game.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say GP Day 1.

Seems like the type of "band aid" maneuver MS would pull in light of the delays and could reveal at the show.

And I'm perfectly fine with that. I had planned to get it day 1 but if Gamepass is going to provide, even better.
