Sometimes It’s More Than Just 1′s and 0′s
It often comes to us that we get the stories where robots think that they are human, I mean we’ve seen I, Robot, there’s been the movie A.I. all that kind of fun shit. But even in that case, the robots may think they are human, but they still don’t look human or have any of those kinds of functionalities. Binary Domain kind of puts that into more of a perspective.
To set it up a little bit, it’s the sort of distant future (around 2040 or so, maybe more), and there has been a ban on research of robotics in the development to make them look human calling them “Hollow Children.” What set this more as a threat though was an attack by a Hollow Child on the Bergen Corporation headquarters. The person behind the development and breaking the clause made was a man by the name of Yoji Amada in Tokyo, so now a team has been dispatched to take out any existing Hollow Children along with bringing Amada to justice.
The game itself from the videos has seemed to be extremely interesting. First off, what really catches my attention is that players are faced with moral decisions in the game, and I am a huge HUGE fan of that. Another thing is that the combat system is all team-based and in order for players to have AI assistance in battles, the AI has to be able to trust the player, and that comes from the player’s moral decisions.
With all that bullshit being said, hands down I WANT this game, I love games that follow this kind of structure where there are multiple outcomes based on player choice. Let me just say again, I fucking want this game, because of all this in it, and the fact that it’s a pretty interesting story.
