To understand what Detroit Become Human is all about, first we must know the man behind it. This is David Cage. Say hello to David Cage.
David Cage is a hack. He’s obsessed with “immersive storytelling” but has no idea how to write a story. Everything he does has weird sex stuff in it, usually non-consensual in a way that is very bad. So this LP should be a blast. If you were around in 2013 for the Beyond: Two Souls LP I did back on SA, then you’ll know the drill. I’ll be dragging the squad in for some serious violations of the geneva convention. Whoo boy is this game bad. I just finished a Science Fiction course at NJIT this past semester, the first half of the course entirely dealt with the idea of “Can the creations of humans become human?” and even the low budget sci-fi films of the past 30 years do a better job at presenting this question. Hell, fucking Die Antwoord does a better job at presenting this question, if you were considering buying this game it would be a better idea to buy Chappie on blu-ray because at least Chappie’s pretty funny.
But don’t take my word for it, just see what these popular twitter personalities had to say about the game during E3 2017! You may recognize some of them.
As you can probably guess, I’ve been planning this for a while. These screenshots are so old that twitter still had square avatars.
