Freedom Wars warns of million year prisons, giant monsters

'Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you'

Our freedom is under attack, America (or Japan). First it was the war on Christmas. Then the war on Christianity. Soon we will all be born slaves, toiling for the mooching liberal welfare state and unable to bring guns into public libraries while pretty Japanese boys emasculate us with their headphones, huge guns, and thorny arms. 

I wonder if that blonde woman cut holes in her hoodie for her cat ear cap or if she's wearing a cap with a cat ear hoodie.

This Freedom Wars trailer is story focused. If you want to see some gameplay, including a cool grappling hook, check this out. Freedom Wars' heavily policed dystopia sees crimes punishable by up to a million years in prison, which seems a waste of tax payer money. Just execute the poor chumps at that point and save yourself a lot of trouble. But I guess tasking inmates with killing large monsters to reduce sentences works too.

Given Sony Japan's involvement and God Eater's success, I panoptican see this coming West.
