It's Ghost in the Shell and Free to Play so at the very least I will try it out, despite my reservations (and the fact that I am not that keen on shooters).

It's kind of a clever way of doing things by having each side look like the bad guys and does fit well with the series in many ways. I wasn't expecting people to be able to choose the same character though, I expect to see an awful lot of Motoko's around in most games.

It is a pity there isn't a Japanese VO option though.

Agreed. I am on the same boat but I gotta tries this out.

I'll check this out purely on the basis of being a GitS fan, but I do have my fears. One of them being Motoko's and Batou's everywhere. Good thing I was always an Ishikawa fan :P
Shooting people can be fun from time to time, but not sure how much of a time investment will F2P demand. I dislike having to keep up with meta.

Also really like how they make people on the opposing team look like the bad guys. Makes me think of the Firestarter.

Can I play as Togusa? Because if not, I'm not as keen for it... Okay, I lied, but I want him to be a character in it.

You can. He is the drone specialist of the cast apparently.

And really? This doesn't absolutely suck? Even though the trailers made it looks so? Wow.

Heh, what GitS need is a proper story-drive stealth action or a fine turn-based tactics (story-driven as well), or maybe and RPG game, and definitely not a Call of Duty variation. But I'll check this out, of course, 'cause it's GitS.

Can you play as Aramaki? As in, you know, wearing a suit and looking small yet somehow imposing? Your Context-Heavy Glares (TM) could amount to a special attack!

All kidding aside, this looks mildly fun. I might catch a few playthroughs later on, form a more definitive opinion from there.

I'm glad they kept his signature revolver as his main weapon.

OT: Looking forward to getting this on Steam now! Hopefully there will be a single player story mode in the finished version. Come to think of it, there were already Ghost in the Shell video games, but I forget about their quality.
And I find it appropriate that the captcha is making me click "I'm not a robot" to post this comment on a thread about GitS.

just starting watching them again. still the most mature, almost realistic and pragmatic animation i have ever seen. of course the title got my interest immediately and had to check it out.

but, so far nothing is shown on steam. of course its the braindead "not available in your region" crap. i really like to know which idiot thinks this is a great idea to restrict titles to a region. not even the official website allows me to get the game due this restriction. what the hell did hong kong do to get this stupid treatment? good thing i move away in over a month back to australia. there i should be able to get the game. by that time i hope the full version will be available or at least known when it will come out.

Not a single mention of Tachikomas =(
They were one of the best things about GITS:SAC

The steam reviews might claim to be mostly positive, but the two highest rated steam reviews are not kind to this game.

They speak of really small maps, spawn camping, and other 'minor' issues that sound like something which shouldn't be issues on modern shooter games.

...like you can't grab a ladder if you're mid-jump - you have to land, look up at the ladder, then start to climb.

This looks great! Maybe something can finally take the place of Blacklight Retribution as a competitive shooter for me. I'm glad to see it's F2P but unfortunately you have to buy into it right now, or sign up for a waiting list. What a shame I'm completely broke after buying into the Blade and Soul and Black Desert betas, when I read this was F2P I was really hoping to be able to hop right in today. Oh well, hopefully I'll make it in through the mailing list for once, I can't wait to give this a try.

See you all on the battlefield.

It's Ghost in the Shell and Free to Play

Is it cause Steam seems to think it should be costing me money to play it.

It seems Early Access is not free. The game itself does list itself as F2P, so my guess is it will be once it leaves it. Which really isn't a positive thing, but it is published by Nexon, who apparently have a bad reputation of the money grubbing sort.

On one side.. I really really like GiTS and haven't had the chance to play a game in the setting other then that ps1 game where you controlled one of them spider robots.

On the other...Reviews ain't really filling me with confidence and I dont like the idea of everyone playing the Major or Bantou, rather we play our own characters.

Also I feel a pure action game is a waste of the settings potential anyways, the ps1 game proved as much to me.
