What i wouldn't give to hear that robotic voice say "Prepare for titan-fall" and some huge robot smash this video. ROFL. Totally getting this for my PS4, good month for gaming. Competition makes the industry better.

I think that Sucker Punch have got it right with the Karma system and their approach to it. So excited to play the game tomorrow!

Pretty interesting. I still think the Karma system should be more subtle and seamless, like in Dishonored. As you play, depending on your play style, the game should constantly change it's premise to reflect the player's decisions.

Mass effect does this in a decent capacity.

@sampson3121  Different publishers give different access levels for their games--sometimes it's just out of our control, but to the point, we've run three big Infamous stories in the last 3 weeks. I wouldn't call that "hardly anything".

@sampson3121 Was hardly a feature on Castlevania los 2 either, some games just don't have mass appeal. Anything multiplayer and shooter will get alooot of coverage.

@krishnaV_ Yeah but in Mass Effect the good/evil stuff is mostly limited to the conversations you have. Not sure how it's done in Dishonored. While inFamous does have very clear and obvious "PICK A CHOICE" moments, it extends into the gameplay as well and your moral alignment will heavily affect the way you play the game.
