Global warming has flooded Earth, killing millions. With human manpower severely diminished, the mass production of robotic workers went into full force to assist with rebuilding the devastation around the world. Governmental powers crippled in the wake of the disaster, laws and regulations weren’t properly enforced: in Binary...
Do you remember Binary Domain? It was a story-driven PlayStation 3 third-person shooter, from the same studio that makes the Yakuza games. Back when it released in 2012, Binary Domain didn't have much of an impact — but it's fondly remembered by those who actually played it, including ourselves. It's safe to say that we'd be well...
We'd be happy with a remaster
So, who remembers Binary Domain? A third-person shooter that launched on the PlayStation 3 all the way back in 2012, it was developed by the team behind the Yakuza series over at SEGA. While it certainly had its flaws, the general consensus here at Push Square is that it was a bit of an underrated gem. Much like...
Binary Domain is a rare gem. Sure, it gets a bit repetitive in places, but it’s uncommon to find a new IP with a genuinely intriguing universe and likable cast. It’s just a shame the general public didn’t agree. According to this month’s NPD report, the Yakuza Studio developed third-person shooter sold just 20k copies in North...
Being human helps
Contrary to common opinion, Binary Domain is not simply a single-player experience. The cyborg shooter also features a comprehensive multiplayer suite, as detailed by a new post published on the PlayStation Blog. The multiplayer features five different classes, each augmented with different skills and weapon loadouts. The choices...
But feels consoles are done
Yakuza creator, Toshihiro Nagoshi, has pledged his allegiance to the PlayStation brand, while also suggesting that consoles are on the way out. In a candid interview with CVG, Nagoshi hypothesised that the market for home consoles will diminish, as portables become gamers’ main platform of choice. He said: Consoles –...
There's been a terrible mistake
Surely Binary Domain can’t get any campier? In the game’s latest trailer, a partially exposed robot learns about his mechanical internals via the reflection of an arrogant idiot's sunglasses. Bad times. He then goes on to get his head blasted in by about 15 pistol rounds, and his carcass transported away in a...
The Yakuza franchise gets away with its daft dialogue and silly plotlines because SEGA doesn’t even bother hiring voice-actors anymore. (We’re ignoring Eliza Dushku’s turn in the original title for obvious reasons.) It’s a shame, then, that SEGA hasn’t extended the same faith to Binary Domain – a title developed by the...
You’ll be able to get your first taste of SEGA’s uber-Japanese futuristic third-person shooter this week, when a demo for Binary Domain drops onto the PlayStation Store. American players will get to go hands-on with the Yakuza Studio developed squad-shooter from 14th February, while European players will be made to wait a day...
We’re hopelessly excited for Binary Domain, we really are. But the online component’s pretty meaningless to us, and this trailer affirms our ambivalence. Sure the gun-play looks solid, the maps look cool and the game modes seem interesting; but is anyone really going to choose to play Binary Domain over Call of Duty or...
Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast-paced and intense battle for humanity in robot-invaded 2080 Tokyo.
Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peace-keeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they made. Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?
Who is humanity's true enemy?
Binary Domain is an original squad-based shooter by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator behind some of SEGA's most well-known video game franchises, including the critically acclaimed Yakuza series. Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity in a robot-invaded 2080 Tokyo. Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peace-keeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make.
