Is this actually gonna get localized? A good amount of Japanese games come out for PC, but they're targeted at Otaku so they never get localized.

What else do PC gamers play but MMOs, RTS and RPGs? Not including games they you would never get without console ports.

Aw why an MMO? I love the cyberstuff so YAY to that.
Weird that they didn't want to let the probably far superior CDprojekt use the license.
Though judging by the trailer they want to go 'less sense, more anime' with the license.
Maybe it is for the best then, as I want a futuristic game from CDprojekt that in ways really questions our actual future.

As much as I love GitS, previous attempts at turning the franchise into a videogame have been very eh and I'm not holding out that this will be any different.
All the same, PC exclusive is quite interesting. Here's to hoping.

Sadly this, there's no way MIrror's Edge meets gunplay + cyberpunk* + story (=GitS) in an MMO. :?

*I mean the genre, not the stupid game/CDPR.

GitS is phenomenal, the problem is converting it to a game, especially an MMO. The origin of influence doesn't mean sh*t, the reason PC gaming has so few Japanese games is because the devs don't port to PC 9999 times out of 10000.

When MMOFPS was mentioned I lost all hope of it being good.

This series as a game has a lot of potential but it will fail as an MMOFPS.

Yeah I am pumped but would rather have it be a 3rd person single player game. Open world would be nice too but that wouldn't be a dealbreaker for me

I was interested until I saw MMOFPS. WHY DON'T THEY MAKE THIS INTO A SINGLEPLAYER RPG? Seriously, if a good team made a legit RPG with the same themes that made the anime so good it would print money.

is not the characters, it's the fact that the one who wrote the story is Tow Ubutaka and that guy has no talent despite the hype. Have you ever seen Mardock Scramble? I have only seen the first 2 movies but what a joke they are... Homosexual dolphin,  inter-dimensional mouse, a man with a vagina on his hand and what about the multiple symbolism?  Its like he read the first page of Symbolism for Dummies but got totally the wrong idea from it. And not to mention the awfully broken pace of the movies. It's soooooo bad, pretentious, boring.   :o

 

Another thing is, the Major's supposed to be a strong looking woman but here she looks like an anorexic weak looking child. The art-style is fine, I think that's the only thing they got right on those Mardock Scramble movies (except for the fluorescent floating streets that's it; totally tacky) and on the new GitS reboot.

 

Even fans can make better redesigns.

At least they are copying lots of elements from Akira, that might help....  =/
