Anecdotally I've known several moms who won't let their kid play games where you just flat-out shoot people, but killing zombies or other human-shaped monsters was acceptable. That kind of attitude could be a contributor to the genre's popularity with children, but I'm no market researcher

Probably, you can scores and scores of robots, aliens, nazis and zombies and still get a lower content rating than you would if you were killing people. That’s got to factor into a publisher’s decision process somehow.

While it's a bit discouraging that it's been a year since the last Trails release and we haven't heard a peep from XSeed, whatever NISA would do to the games wouldn't be worth getting it possibly sooner.

I was hoping for more 13 Sentinels news, but I guess Atlus not saying it's there pretty much means there's 0 chances of that. It's definitely not a press conference game.

Kenshiro is a good guy, pozzy vibes from that guy. When he's wandering across the land, I feel like things are aiight he's on top of things.

That Days gone trailer showed that the game is nothing but an uninspired game version of walking dead: Daryl. "Zombie animals original idea do not steal" is the only thing that did not immediately look, smell and sound like Walking Dead.

Hopefully they'll have as a good of a track record as Annapurna does right now. We really need more mid-tier publishers.

Spielberg worked on The Dig too, there's Clive Barker's Undying, and James Gunn wrote Lollipop Chainsaw.

Also if Del Toro ever actually got his chance to make a game I have faith in the guy he would pull it off.

It's 100% going to be a bad game for anyone. Yeah it will probably sell well. So do McDonalds hamburgers. That doesn't make them good burgs.

I guess if you haven't played an open world or zombie game in 5 years it could be good "for you" but I'd save the money and play Last of Us instead.
