But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I hope this turns out to be something special, but it's honestly looking pretty "last-gen" both in graphics and gameplay. Not sure I need another grim-dark anti-hero who is out for revenge via a stylized murder spree.

        It kind of sucks it's straddling the line between current and last-gen. :/
