More On Detroit: Become Human

Aside

It was brought to my attention that the first trailer for Detroit: Become Human actually appeared at E3 in 2015. Somehow this game flew under my radar until now.

This trailer seems to have more in common with the 2017 trailer than the one from 2016 but still seems to be telling a somewhat different story. It has been suggested the game may have three different intertwining stories to choose from or you may play as each of these three characters at some point to tell the same story. What do you think? What would you prefer?

Looking Back At Last Year’s Detroit: Become Human Trailer

Yesterday, we wrote about a newly-released trailer for an upcoming game from Sony called Detroit: Become Human. You can find that here.

As it turns out, this game has been in development for a long time. It even had a trailer released during last year’s E3. The strange thing is the two trailers look like they could almost be for two entirely different games within the same setting. The protagonists of these trailers also appear to be on opposite sides of the same conflict. The one thing the two trailers seem to have in common is the possibly elaborate decision making system.

This could mean they were planning to make the game one way and changed it drastically during the course of production. It could also mean you will have a truly impressive number of options in the game. All we can do for now is wait and see.

2016’s E3 trailer is included below if you, like myself, had not yet seen it.

Return Of A Huge Sci-Fi Video Game Franchise From Nintendo

Today at E3, Nintendo confirmed Metroid Prime 4 is currently in development. This is big news as Metroid Prime 3 was released 10 years ago, in 2007. Fans have been waiting a long time for this follow-up and are understandably excited.

No concrete details about the game are available at this time.

The Metroid Prime games are a continuation of the Metroid franchise, which began on the original Nintendo Entertainment System console.

Watch the teaser trailer below.

Trailer For Detroit: Become Human Released At E3

At this year’s E3, Sony released a lengthy trailer for a new cyberpunk game called Detroit: Become Human. In this game, you play as Marcus, an android and revolutionary on a crusade to free other androids from their slavery to humans.

The trailer looks great but doesn’t show anything of what actual gameplay will be like other than there will be points in the game where you have to make choices which will impact the story from that point on.

Sony gave no release date for Detroit: Become Human but it’s a title we’ll be keeping our eye on in the coming months. Check out the trailer for yourself below.

Cyberpunk 2077 Design Documents Stolen

CD Projekt Red, a video game studio best known for the game franchise The Witcher, reported yesterday design documents for their upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 have been stolen. It’s unclear if this means they no longer have the documents or just that copies, perhaps even digital, have been acquired by a party outside the company.

The company claims a ransom demand has been made but they will not pay it. The theives claim they will release the design documents to the public if the ransom is not paid. The documents have not been released anywhere online at this time.

According to CD Projekt Red, the documents that were stolen our old and will likely indicate what the final game will be like, should they be leaked to the public.

New Twitter Poll (Starship Troopers)

After news came of a new Starship Troopers movie, we posted a new Twitter poll asking what people thought of the first film from 1997. Remember to cast your vote before it closes tomorrow night. While you’re at it, make sure you’re following @DarkFuturesFic and @Phase2Magazine.

New Starship Troopers Movie Incoming

A trailer has just been released for a new Starship Troopers movie, continuing the franchise which began with the movie titled simply Starship Troopers in 1997. Since then, there have been three more movies released in the franchise (two live action like the original and one animated) and an animated series.

The new movie is titled Traitor of Mars and will see Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of the characters they played in the first film, Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores. Also returning for this sequel is Ed Neumeier, who wrote the first film (based, though some would say loosely, on Robert Heinlein’s 1959 novel.)

Release of a film continuing this franchise comes as a surprise to many as there have been rumors of a reboot in the works for some time now.

Traitor of Mars will be in theaters in the US for one night only on August 21st. Check local listings for more details as the date approaches. There is no information yet about home video release.

Will you be seeing this movie in the theater or waiting for later release? What did you think of the other Starship Troopers movies? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
