Binary Domain

Binary Domain has been getting some good buzz as of late, comes out in a few weeks (2/28)... from the creator of the Yakuza series. What suppose to set this 3rd person shooter apart is it's story, and the way the A.I. squadmates can turn on if they dislike your decisions, or the way you're talking to them (through your headset).

"Binary Domain"? Is that REALLY what the marketing department is going with? That title alone will probably cost them 40% of their impulse purchases. I wonder if they'll be equally ambiguous/bad box art.

Usually the Japanese box art looks better, but this time it seems just as bad.

I played the Binary Domain demo a few days ago. It controls surprisingly well for a shooter from the East, pretty much Gears of War with some interesting ideas.

Kinda has that "b" game feel to it for whatever reason, but I think it's going to be a fun game to pick up for around 20 bones.

Boss from the demo...

I finished Binary Domain a few months back and forgot to post about it, lol.

I ended up liking the campaign a lot.

The game itself is a mishmash of Gears, Mass Effect, with a little bit of Yakuza. The characters and story are very charming and funny, bad in someways, but always entertaining and charming.

The actual combat is a lot of fun, and is up there with Resident Evil and Vanquish as the only other Japanese shooters that are competent. There's a pretty deep upgrade system here too, with the ability to add item boosts like you see in a lot of RPGs.

When this game drops to $19.99, I encourage people here to get it. Especially Aeon Storm, I think you'll really like it.

Damn, everything about that sounds awesome. I'll grab it when it's under 20 bucks. I'm a fiend for upgrading weapons in games.

If it had co-op, it would be a no-brainer.

You didn't even finish the tutorial, and played the bad multiplayer.

I mentioned stuff about that game that you never knew was even in there because you played it so little, like the upgrade system.

It's one of those games that make a poor first impression, but if you play it more than 15 minutes you see what the game is about.

lol, it's a lot like Yakuza. People who play it for a few minutes hate it, but if you spend some time in there you'll understand why people love it.
