    God damn it.

    Futuristic sci-fi noir was one of my favorite things. Between Hard Reset, Prey 2, DX:HR, and now the new Syndicate, it's just gonna become the new WW2.

    So basically, today's current plans for making games is:

    1) Take a beloved old game, like X-COM or Syndicate
    2) Completely ignore everything that made it awesome
    3) Make a crappy FPS
    4) TROLL ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK!

    I am not happy. You've ruined my day. Thank you.

    Non-FPS/TPS games just aren't contemporary. Don't you know anything?

    They'll never ruin cyberpunk as a setting, though. Nuh-uh. They like using the aesthetics, oh yes. But rarely the interesting details, and never the themes. There's also a disturbing lack of Space Rastas.

    Actually, this thread came before the other one.

    And we already KNOW that a game that hasn't even been properly announced will be rubbish.

    Well someone is buying them. I don’t feel compelled to bend over at all.

    I'm all for more futuristic sci-fi stuff.
    Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

    Considering that it's from the devs of Riddick I'm liking it.

    I'm so angry at you, people. It's like I'm on NMA again. At least they had a point about Fallout being a RPG( Wizardry will disagree but I don't care), but Syndicate wasn't even a strategy game. It could have been first/third person and gameplay won't change at all. Yes, I'm posting this everywhere until this drama ends. Play it. Watch it on Youtube. I'm so angry.

    Where do you see tactics? It had direct control ffs. You are clicking enemies to death with minigun fire in this game.

I'm pretty sure that a winning formula was "Equip all agents with miniguns and machinegun everyone on the screen". Or burn everyone. Or disintegrate with lasers.

    Seriously, did you even play it?
    Ok, bu-

For petes sake, go play it before posting this drama, it will probably run fine with dos-box. Goddamnit, you people.
    Hang on a se-

    Jesus tap dancing Christ, shut up! Nobody cares what Syndicate was, what matters is it’s yet another franchise that has been commandeered by those who are convinced all the money is in the FPS genre. If this keeps up we’ll have less choice than a Welsh fish and chip shop.
