This could be super cool. Mech suits are always a winner for me. I hope its first person, but I don't think Bioware have ever done a first person game and they'll want to distance themselves from Destiny a bit.

Very excited to see more though.

So it's a "games as a service" game from EA/bioware? That's disappointing. I wonder when we are going to see an actual RPG from Bioware again, especially if this does super well.

I am intrigued.

A bit dissapointed in it being Fall 2018 though, although that was fully expected. It's still coming out before Last of Us 2, Shenmue 3, FF7 Remastered. So there's that..

A full third person Destiny-like game could be interesting. I guess it will be inspired by ME3 MP gameplay wise too.

Thank god it's a Destiny-esque shared world looter shooter. These kind of games are quickly becoming my favourite

An e-mail I got from EA calls it; "A new action RPG in a shared world from BioWare."

In my own world
I'm definitely thinking it's an action RPG the way Destiny is an action RPG, not in the way say Diablo 3 is - not just because of the perspective different but more in terms of depth of RPG systems, gamplay/gunplay, mechanics, aiming and motion.

I wish games would do their reveal more akin to Fallout 4. A couple of months before release and show a good chunk of gameplay at reveal.

I'm excited and scared at the same time, because I'm not really sure about what BioWare is capable after all the smart folk left.

But hey I assume is their last chance before EA decides to close it down like Maxis?

Did they, I must have missed that. Awesome if so, I feel like we need to get that to understand and get a true feeling for the game. I thought they could have maybe just shown an extended/more detailed version of the teaser from the EA Play conference.
Yeah at the end of the teaser yesterday.

I just can't get excited over generic sci-fi shit anymore. I mean Mass Effect was sci-fi too, sure, but it was pulpy Sci-Fi. That said, I hope the game's fun to play at least, for those of you who think it looks cool

It already sounds like a destiny clone.
That's not necessarily a bad thing. A clone of what Destiny could have been and what some of us were hoping for from Destiny 2 would be amazing. Give me a rich setting filled with mysteries and lore. Give me memorable characters. Give me world-changing storylines. Give me something with the scale of Witcher 3 with expansions the quality of its DLC and I'll be there.

I think you will have to wait for Cyberpunk 2077 for that.

Oh wow actually? That's pretty bold, but holy shit is it exciting. Potential for beat-em-up style Vanquish gunplay and co-op.
I like both third person and first person games, but the one thing I disliked about destiny that was all my sexy armour wouldn't be visible to me save for certain moments (tower, supers, sparrow, menu). A third person game that lets me see my character more always gets me excited.

I dig the teaser trailer. Give me a huge open world with a great story, characters, and romance — I will be happy. Bioware gets bonus points if I can ignore other players.

In MMOs it completely breaks immersion when going to talk to a quest NPC and ten people are huddled around.

Another concern is the release date. Fall 2018 sounds like an early 2019 game. That's a long time from now. We also don't know when CyberPunk 2077 will release. I can see both of these games coming out in 2018 or 2019. I recall reading CyberPunk will have seamless multiplayer and a shared living city. Without any other details, this sounds like both games are trying to accomplish the same thing.

Damn that would be amazing. Above everything I really hope the nail the movement and gun play, it's a massive reason Destiny won me over in the end, it's far more important than anything imo for these games.

She only has worst novels.
For angry, intelligent highschool and college students her books can be a life-changing moment. Although usually that means that they become insufferable jerks for a while and either pass the morality acid test and outgrow it, becoming more compassionate human beings, or going all-in and embracing their inner selfish jerk for the rest of their lives.
