    Never really got into the AoT games, but the chance to shoot up the Mexican Cartel? Consider me highly intrigued.

    The first game only came out what? Four year ago? Five? Who is this "new generation"? :dry:

    Since it takes place in Mexico, I think it would have been cool if their mask designs were based on that awesome, ornate skull imagery you see on Day of the Dead. Oh well.

    I found that quote funny too, the series is alright but I've only played the first game together with my brother, AI wasn't good but I enjoyed the mindless action and since it's designed for co-op it makes the experience much more enjoyable. Also I don't know what to think about this having a more mature and gritty tone, don't we have enough games that are doing the same?

    Thats what i hated about the first 2 games. They were too corny. The darker tone is what is intriguing me about this installment.

    This franchise has been a guilty pleasure of mine. The first game had loads of character and big dumb fun. The second... not so much but it still managed to be enjoyable because of Rios and Salem.

    Not having Rois and Salem playable is a big disappointment. Rios and Salem, damn it. The bromance will never die. :csad:

    Had some great moments with the first two. Sad to see Salem and Rios not coming back. Salem is one of my favourite VG characters.

    Also the end of 40thDay with a Deadpool mask was badass. :oldrazz:

    I played like, one hour's worth of time on the first game and didn't like it. But I LOVED the second game, major improvement. No Salem and Rios makes me hesitant though, especially since Nolan North voiced Salem in the last game. I hope this thrid game can expand on the scenarios The 40th Day created.

    Different strokes I guess, though I've heard that the second one was trying to be too serious. Anyway I like that this series had some lighthearted humor enough to differentiate from the rest in today's crowded shooter market, now it's just like them, but I'm not judging beforehand, who knows? Perhaps it's good, the controls weren't the series' strong-side so hope they could tweak that.

    Any reason you're so pumped about shooting the cartels?, Just curious.

    I had fun with the first Army of Two game, I thought it was a fantastic co-op experience but haven't play the second one yet. Anyway, I'm curious to see what Visceral Games will do with the "reboot".

    I think the idea of Army of Two is fine but the games haven't been the best. Hopefully this steps it up a level.

    I guess it's just how the cartels operate. The violence they inflict on others doesn't seem to be matched. So I'm glad I can virtually do that.

    I'm very interested in this game due to being a Visceral fanboy. :)

    Gamescon will show footage, they're asking what people wanna know. I'd like to see what gameplay tweaks they'll do to be honest, i wonder how Dead Space 3 and Army of Two 3 has progressed, are each team helping each other somehow? Like talking about AI and controls.

    It's still largely being developed by the ones responsible for the first two games, EA Montreal have just been rebranded to Visceral Montreal.

    Looks pretty bad ass.


    Actually, most of the team working on this game were not part of the last two titles. Theres an article about the game in GameInformer and it talked about that. Granted the two studios are next door, but most of the team is new.

    Well if there's one thing we can say, the shooting and explosion details have really improved from second game. The gameplay looks marvelous. Can't wait to see what type of customizations can be made to the masks for SP. If there are any at least...But still, looks awesome. Can't wait!

    They can't go from the level of mask customization that was in the second one, to none at all...
