Another engrossing video with a thoughtful message. It was not until watching the video that the idea of subduing, not killing, enemies in a game like this actually struck me as a wonderful moment in gaming. At its core, this game and the idea of old-school superheroes in general has something wonderful. Here, indeed, is a hero: someone who refuses to compromise his principles and see the world in simple good=save/bad=kill dualism. Instead, justice has become a persistent fact and no simple outs (such as death) will be offered.
