The idea of actually entrusting your life to a computer-controlled character that isn’t named Alyx Vance might repulse you, or even conjure up images of the inevitable humans vs. machines revolution that's on the horizon. However, don’t let that get in the way of you keeping an eye on Ninja Theory’s upcoming AI partner-based adventure title Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. After all, I should know. I played it at E3 last week:
“Because the game puts such an emphasis on teamwork between Animal and Trip, you will encounter situations where you will have to provide cover for the AI-controlled Trip in order to move her into position. One of the ways to do this is to yell at enemies, crude I know, but it works. Then, when the enemies focus their fire on you, you simply tell Trip to move and she’s make her way to your position.”
