Binary Domain is SEGA's new beginning
After viewing the Binary Domain debut trailer well over a year ago I was left speechless. This was the Terminator /IRobot game that I always wanted. A third person action packed blockbuster shooter, complete with explosions, dismemberment, and a story to weld it altogether.
Endless waves of seemingly unbeatable robot foes with a no quit attitude. Squad mates that will react to your commands based on their loyalty to the main character. And a story created by none other then Toshihiro Nagoshi, the man responsible for the Yakuza series.
A demo finally surfaced for Binary Domain. My year of being hyped for the game was not wasted. Binary Domain left an unforgettable impression on me. The game brought to me a ever changing battlefield. Enemies that will stop at nothing to extinguish human life. An arsenal of weapons with a well thought out upgrade system. Awesome giant bosses that leave you in awe.
Walking away from the Binary Domain demo I am now a believer in the game. However I came to the bittersweet realization that if Binary Domain receives sub par sales. We won’t see a sequel that will refine some of the elements presented in the game. We could possibly be stuck with bad Sonic games to recoup some of the losses. SEGA has put a ton of effort into the game and I would hate to see it go to waste.
I am happy to see Toshihiro Nagoshi becoming Sega's new Chief Creative Officer. Binary Domain is amazing.
I do have a review in the works.
Hmmm...I haven't heard much of this other than on advertisements but if you say it's good then I might keep my eye on it in the future.
We wouldn't necessarily be stuck with bad Sonic games. They've been good for the past 2-3 titles. As for BD it does seem like it could really succeed if only they put a little more effort into advertising it. I played the demo, and while it's not really my type of game, I kinda liked it and I saw that it was very well done.
It's good, but it's nothing we haven't seen before.
Why, oh why aren't you coming out on PC?!
every one stop ....go buy this game you need it I really loved vanquish but the lack of multi player def hurt this game has the whole package
I want a new Jet set radio.
You are totally correct with the presentation. I have to play the game a little more, but I don't feel the slipperiness you are describing. The squad can be a pain at times.
I would really love to see older SEGA franchise come out as well. A new Panzer Dragoon in HD would be amazing. The the theory I have for SEGA making games like this, is that games are selling much more in the West and Europe than Japan unless your game is kind of RPG. SEGA has a lot of balls for doing something like this.
Did Binary Domain already come out? WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING HERE!?
Binary Domain can be good, but I don't really see why SEGA is moving on with new franchises that barley break any ground and revive an older franchise like Shining Force. Anyway, I guess someone has to feed the masses with more of the same. I'm not saying Binary Domain is the same as say, Gears of War. But it's not to far off.
Me personally, i really hated the demo. The presentation and look of the game was very well done. The futuristic setting is awesome. Gameplay just felt weird, my character felt like he was on ice, idk it was just hard to control for me and im sure i'd get used to it. Not really any different robot types from the red and green ones. The squad commands were awful to me. I'd be down and i'd call for a partner to come for me, he'd run to me, stop turn and just leave. I wasn't able to tell him again, hey come help me.
Just an overall frustrating experience for me.
This one I am real interest. Sega knows how to spin a good story. lol They know what I like, lets be honest. Yeah, I gotta this one.
