Best Trailer of the Day: Binary Domain’s “Bigger Than You Think”
From the creators of the Yakuza series, we’re given a peek into the sordid future of 2080. Humanity has battled devastating climate changes by advancing technology beyond all precedents. Regulations were set in place to keep such technological growth in check with one rule held in sacred: machines can never fully resemble human beings.
We wouldn’t have a kick ass, dark sci-fi story on our hands if that rule wasn’t broken, however, which leads us to this surprisingly amazing trailer. Put Binary Domain on your radar, friends, and prepare for the machine age February 28th.
I know every single American gamer in the country — without exception — is whiling the days away until Yakuza of the Dead (aka Yakuza: Dead Souls) finally comes out, but give a gander to Binary Domain (Feb. 28th), a squad-based shooter set in the 2080’s that looks to be ripped right out of an Asimov novel.
Yakuza Studios hopes to somehow find more international success with Binary. I really don’t know how a third-person shooter where you blow away robots would translate better than the interpersonal relationships between Japanese mobsters, but I guess that’s why I’m not a game developer.
