There’s a rise of the robots in Detroit: Become Human

49 second read


Starting off with mournful singing in a snowy city, Detroit is very obviously not the sort of game that could be called happy. David Cage’s new game is visually impressive and filled with the same sort of emotive stuff you’d expect from the director.

It’s about a robot revolution, androids rising up against their human masters. It’ll have the same sort of demi-quick time events Cage’s games have been known for. It’ll let you carve out your own story, with the actions you take changing the narrative – or at least that’s the premise, as it has been with Quantic Dreams games forever.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Marcus looks like that one teen from the Cabin in the Woods.

    • That’s because it is. It’s the actor Jesse Williams.

        I never forget a face, unlike most women who wants to forget mine 🙁

          Git good looking!

          • Hammersteyn

            Maybe if I had a big enough shovel?

          • Original Heretic

            Duct tape. Turns no no no into hmmm hmmmm hmmm.

            DISCLAIMER: That was a joke, do not take me seriously.

      Love that movie. I hope it never gets a sequel.

      • Hammersteyn

        Agreed, it ended perfectly.

        • Original Heretic

          Prequels might work. They could even have the peoples surviving and beating the monsters, as long as they all get killed in one of the other locations.
          Done properly, it could be interesting.

          But it would be a challenge.

          • Hammersteyn

            They need to do a prequel in Japan first!

          • Original Heretic

            That would totally work if done properly.
            I think their biggest challenge would be fleshing out the story. A lot of the success of the original movie was based on keeping the audience guessing as to what’s really going on. Why are these dudes watching them? What are they playing at?
            All that mystery is now gone.
