That Ghost in the Shell shooter is coming to Steam

    
20

The nominees for this year’s most ridiculously long game title are as follows: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online. Actually that’s it, there’s just one nominee, because who in their right mind slaps a game with such a lengthy moniker?

Nexon does, apparently, and it wants you to know that GitS:SAC-FAO (sorry, I’m not typing all that crap again) is coming to Steam. I have no idea when it’s coming to Steam, because Nexon’s press release fails to mention that bit of info. I suppose you can add it to your wishlist and be notified later, though.

GitS:SAC-FAO players will join Section 9, an elite force of cybernetically enhanced badasses who fight terrorists on the “neon-drenched streets of a futuristic Japan.”

I thought this game already shut down…maybe I’m thinking of another similar game?

GitS and WH40k: My two fav IP’s are now doomed to obscure and shallow FPS hell… sad times.

Samizdat It’s so long and complicated it could be a plot in the series.

At first I was against the idea of third person view in this game. But then I’ve realized how Motoko’s shiny bottom may distract male players from the primary gameplay…

Having been in the closed beta a few months back, I don’t see this game becoming much of anything.
While yes, there is leeway to be given to a game that’s not yet released, it wasn’t so much the bus and unfinished product that turned me off. It was the potential for this game to be amazing and then seeing what it was they intended to do with it, which is a shit counterstrike clone. 
If they had decided to make it a firefall clone, I could see some real life breathed into it (open worlds and objectives in this setting would be amazing), but no; small maps, team vs team, recycled and drawn out objectives that have been done before. Awesome.

Hopefully it’ll get good. But it’ll probably be microtransactioned to all holy hell.

Also, as an aside – one of my favourite long-ass titles is The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II: Rise of the Witch King, or LotR: BME: RotWK
