SEGA’s Binary Domain Coming to Steam in April

Binary Domain is a surprisingly good game. I hoped for a lot, but expected little, out of SEGA’s cover-based shooter set in a world where robots are becoming indistinguishable from humans. When it hit consoles late last month, it turned out to be a very solid experience, with some beautiful human-on-robot violence and legitimately interesting voice commands that even worked 50% of the time. After earning some golf claps from those console gamers who actually bought it, Binary Domain is now readying for a PC release.

The announcement was quite sudden, but the Steam Store now proudly boasts of an upcoming launch for Toshihiro Nagoshi’s mechanized shooter. It’ll be ported over by Devil’s Details and it’s available to preorder for a rather pleasant $39.99. No launch date has been set in stone, but it’s currently slated for some time in April.

I really dug it, and if you enjoy a good shooter, you’ll probably dig it too. You could do far worse with your ill-gotten dubloons.

I hate when publishers do this. Release a game with no mention of a PC port, which forces me to buy the console version. Then, a month or more later, announce the PC version. I would have rather played the game on the PC. I mean, while I do have consoles, I have a ‘gaming’ PC. The only time I’ll get a game on the console is if it’s an exclusive, which I thought this game was; exclusive to the consoles. Apparently I was wrong.

“Good things comes to he who waits” – really need to remember that. Bah!
(maybe the port will be so terrible, I won’t feel so bad)

The game itself is great. Definitely a sleeper hit and I really enjoyed it. While the game itself is fairly short (completed in roughly 11 hours), it does have some good replay incentive, like using different squad members and just being a fun game overall which makes you want to do it all again.

And for $39.99 you can’t go wrong!
