If you were curious as to what the storyline for Binary Domain was, then the newly released trailer should help shed some light on your confusion. It seems that Binary Domain will be going down the route of robots turning on their human masters after subverting themselves far enough into the structure of humanity that they were able to completely uproot them.
From the little that I saw of the game at E3, the title looks quite impressive, even in these early stages of development. The robots are not going to be easy to destroy and can continue to fight even after they have had limbs removed… including their head. Even though a bit cliché the storyline could easily work wonders when the game is released next year.
