You played Limbo, right? It was okay. Maybe a bit difficult. And what the hell was with the story? Dude just walked around a lot and there was that chick and random brain slugs and then suddenly it was THE END and I had to ask a friend with a degree to try and explain its plot to me. Also, why was it in black and white? Can these “indie developers” not afford colours or something?
Thankfully, Activision have announced that they have picked up the rights to Limbo 2, and they’ll be making the super awesome hardcore game that the first Limbo failed to be.
One of the creative minds at Activision, Chuck Lesuche, has released this excellent video to give us a taste of what to expect from the next exciting game in the series. Personally, I’m really looking forward to the implementation of “deathstreaks”. I’m not used to dying in games and the constant deaths I had to endure in the first Limbo really took their toll on my self-esteem, so this is a welcome change; once again I can be assured of my gaming prowess by simply checking my deathstreak. Being rewarded for a high deathstreak with predator missiles will be pretty sweet too, what do you guys think?
No plans for online multiplayer deathmatch modes have been announced yet, but as Activision truly realises the value of online play, I am sure this is something they are working to perfect at the moment and will be announcing soon.
