RoboCop: Rogue City… Teaser?

1 min read
38

Every once in a while you get a teaser trailer that takes the whole concept of a”teaser” to a whole new level.

Just take this particular trailer as an example. What do we know about it? It’s set in Old Detroit! Crime levels are rising again! You know the city needs a hero and not just any hero. It’s pretty clear, Old Detroit doesn’t need some Caped Crusader or some weirdo with his underpants over his yoga tights.

Oh… no… Detroit needs something better; we’re talking about a hero that’s “part man, part machine, but ALL cop“.

There’s absolutely nothing to be squeezed out of this short trailer. It’s leaving absolutely everything to the imagination. Is this going to be a first-person shooter? Third-person? Is this a sequel to the Paul Verhoeven original? Is it a continuation of the third one from the early 90s? The only thing I’m certain of is that this is definitely not inspired by the RoboCop movie from 2014. But, you just have to wonder, is this a reboot? What’s going on? And, why am I feeling so excited?

I know absolutely nothing, but the sight of Robocop’s iconic handgun left me a little giddy… Personally, I think the world is ready for a good, violent and gory RoboCop game. What do you reckon, fam?

      It’s the moustache isn’t it? That used to be my old xbox 360 profile picture. I think I made it during one of the Movembers. I actually did have a pretty classy lip slug that month.

            I kind of missed out on the 5-man Gears of War 1 multiplayer because at the time, I had a really terrible connection. :/ I enjoyed Gears of War 3’s multiplayer though, and the horde mode in Gears 4 and 5.

            We used to basically LAN our 360’s. Five guys assembled (sometimes 4), all bringing our TV’s and consoles.
            We’d spend the whole Sunday gaming.
            Horde mode on Insane was our bitch.

            The 360 was awesome, but I’m still gonna tease him just because we used to play Warframe together on the PS back in the day.

            Warframe. Man, haven’t even sniffed at that in ages.

            I remember playing legendary with my brother-in-law and taking down Raam. We felt like kings.

          🙁 I still love the sound the old xbox 360’s blade UI made…

    Well, well, well… Who would have guessed this would have happened to this site?!?! Left about 2-3 years ago when I started getting more political articles than gaming ones. Glad to see a refocus on games.. I can’t write to save my life, but I will be back to read and to comment if time allows it. I hope you guys can get this site back to where it belongs. The community is what made this site and that was forgotten along the way, don’t make that mistake again.
    Writing and editing can improve over time, just give us the news and your views and we will let you know in the comment section if we agree or not!

      Don’t worry about it, you improve as you write, and I think a few Jonah Cash gaming opinion pieces would be interesting to read, or even your thoughts about what you’re currently playing.

      lol, I love the first movie. That’s one of those quotes that just instantly pop out of your head when you think of RoboCop.

        And, it’s also one of those movies that have aged incredibly well. I watched it a while back, and I can’t believe how gory it was – and I think I watched it when I was 10 or something (thanks parents :P). Paul Verhoeven is truly a master at his craft. The stop-motion looks a little strange now, but other than that, it’s still one of those classics that I’ll gladly go back to.

    Robocop is legend of course, but what I’d really love to see is a proper, balls-to-the-wall Judge Dredd game, which is what I thought this was initially for some reason.

      You’re speaking my language. I want a gritty, gory and proper Judge Dredd game, that’s faithful to the source material, and I don’t care if it’s a rehash of the original few stories. It just shouldn’t feature Sylvestor Stallone 😛

        Not that familiar with the source material myself (which I should probably rectify) but sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who really liked Stallone’s Dredd *ducks*

        Or perhaps I just liked the film too much to be bothered by Dredd’s portrayal. Mega City 1 looked great! It’s still one of the most impressively realized locations I’ve seen in scifi.

          I am not sure if you have seen the Karl Urban Dredd. That one was quite close to the source material. I have read some of the original comments and boy they were dark stories. The Stallone one me thinks was catered to much to a younger audience. But I will be honest – I did not hate Stallone’s Dredd. But it was almost too close to a type of movie for me to what Demolition man was

            I have seen Karl Urban’s Dredd, and I’m still pissed that it didn’t spawn sequels. Incredible film!

            I still don’t understand why that movie didn’t get at least ONE sequel. It was perfect. It captured the look and feel of a Judge Dredd graphic novel to a tee. And, for the record, just as much as Karl Urban was 100% Dredd, Olivia Thirlby was absolutely perfect as Anderson.
