Hatred on Monday!!!

Can't Wait

Posted on Saturday, May 30, 2015

Not sure how many people have had their eye on Hatred or not, but it comes out Monday on Steam for $20. The game has been in the media thanks to it's theme but honestly it's no worse than Postal, and games like GTA V have far worse content and activities (like Hookers, and then killing those Hookers for a refund). Then of course there's the one Call of Duty MW 2 airport level. To me Hatred is quite tame in comparison.

It's not often I get into a isometric shooter, but this one looks extremely fun. The color palette and tone really set it off. All the environments are fully destructible meaning you can practically tarraform the fighting space for a tactical advantage. Blow down a wall for a clear shot at what's on the other side. Blow up a car then use it as cover. It's mechanics look to be really well done. It reminds me a lot of a arcade game I played as a kid and then later on one of the Nintendo systems, called "Smash TV". It was a violent twin stick shooter but it never caught any heat because it was a sci-fi futuristic setting, but the type of isometric overhead shooter has been copied many times since then and Hatred is only the latest to do so.

Now if you feel like going on some SJW tirade about how evil this game is and all the blah blah blah that comes with that, please don't. I don't want this thread to turn into a flame fest or to get locked because of nonsense over people's differences of opinion on that. We all know what "opinions" are like and how they smell so there's no need for that.

It just looks like a really fun, really cool, Game. It's just a video game. Of course I wouldn't condone anything like this in real life, just like I don't condone genocide in real life. Yet we bomb entire species out of existence every day in Gal Civ so we don't need any morality lessons here, ok.

If you want to comment on the GAME however, please feel free. It looks like a fun little shooter with a pretty cool theme and a great physics engine to me. As for the main character, hell I have all that guys clothes in my closet right Pretty sure I've seen his band play more than a few times as well. He reminds me of Peter Steele from Type O or Nathan Explosion from Dethklok/Metalocalypse on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

Looking forward to this on Monday.
