This image illustrates why I find it so hard to stop and think. Think about it. You had a perfectly good morning. You were on your way to work and just had to get yourself situated. You stopped off at the convenience store (or a few restaurants, both of which are fine), grabbed a drink, and then drove home. You probably even had a snack, coffee, and a few bites of food (depending on your level of self-awareness, of course).
But then this image comes up and I have to pause and think about what I just did, and why I did it. I mean, I know that I stopped at the convenience store and had a drink and had some food, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I was aware of this. I mean, how often do we actually go to the grocery store and just grab a snack? Not often.
We’re told by Deathloop that the reason he’s on the island is because he’s the head of security for the Visionaries, but there’s no indication that he’s the reason anything was happening. And by the tone of the trailer, it seems he’s still the head of security for all of these Visionaries, but in his role as a party animal he somehow doesn’t realize that. That’s my suspicion anyway.
I would’ve thought that since the Visionaries were all in the same place for so long, they would’ve figured out that their plans were a complete and utter disaster. They should’ve seen the light a long time ago when they realized that their fun was all going to end up with them getting blown to bits.
The last thing these Visionaries do is tell Colt Vahn that they have a plan to free them from Blackreef, which I think is the whole point of the trailer.
I get the sense that in the trailer we’re treated to a lot of the same plot points from the game. We see the Visionaries being taken out by a group of heavily armed soldiers from the mainland.
The game’s plot is based on the old story of “the island” (which is, of course, a reference to the island of Blackreef in the game). The island is home to Visionaries who are a group of evil masterminds, led by the leader, a giant, amnesiac man named Colt Vahn, who’s also the head of security.
Yeah, I think that’s what the trailer is saying (in a way). I think the trailer is hinting that in the game there is more to the story than just a bunch of amnesiacs trying to kill off the Visionaries. I think the trailer is trying to explain why the game takes place on Blackreef, which is kind of interesting.
Guilty is a good chance to talk about Blackreef in the game. As it turns out, its a small island full of villains and heroes, and the Visionaries are the evil masterminds who keep the island safe from a bunch of other villains, like the Shadowlords. We also learn that the islands are home to a bunch of superpowered, amnesiacs named the Shadowlords.
I’m a big fan of the first half of the game, with the Shadowlords being the most interesting part, especially in Deathloop. I’m looking forward to the second half because there’s lots of more story to tell. One interesting thing I’ve noticed about the Shadowlords is that they’re very reluctant to interact with anyone.
