Obviously tribal people all look like Victoria's Secret models.

 

Speaking of post-apocalyptic dystopias, what I'd like is a Dark Tower rpg.

I don't get what the goal of the game could possibly be. So there's open wilderness and you take down big game. But you can't eat them since they're made of metal and all that, so it's not a survival thing. Are you going to reclaim the Earth by destroying all of the robots, one-by-one, using handmade tools? Then spend the next 10,000 years or so rebuilding civilisation?

Sure, maybe the world is just a backdrop to some more personal quest, like if someone murdered your husband and stole your baby, but that kind of thing seems improbable and doesn't really line up with what we've seen. But reclaiming the world seems about as improbable as it would be if the goal of Fallout was to restore the world to its pre-apocalyptic state, or if the goal of a Vampire game was to completely eliminate every single supernatural being in the world.

I think it's just a Western version of Monster Hunter

I'm looking forward to this game.


I was until I watched the trailer. I was hoping for a, as Sorophx said, monster hunter-like game with robot monsters.

The term "BioWare-style RPG" doesn't exactly make me reach for my wallet.

The visuals get my juices flowing, exclusives suck.

Outside of the somewhat interesting setting... looks to be a pretty boring combat rolling simulator just like the rest of them.

Still think this looks interesting, still not buying a console.

I used a neat little random word generator and it gave me the words pale, crop, impact. I would stylise this as Pale Crop: Impact. It's a guaranteed megahit.

 

 

EDIT: Feel free to generate your own commercial goldmine with it. I tried again and got Passion: Crew Mistake. I probably can't sell that one, as it'd essentially be a Mass Effect knock-off.

Wow, thank you humanoid. I can already see the piles of cash being unloaded out of my new Bugatti Chiron parked in front of my new apartment in Monaco!

Outcast Dean: Blackguard.

Honestly, the "dean" part is the only one not ultra-generic but if they played it up it could end a very weird game, for good or ill.

So basically Mass Effect 2.

Apparently my game is about batteries.

Tacking Loose: Perfect

 

Sounds like a yacht racing game.  I'm more than a little interested in playing that.
