Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

  • @dmcmaster said in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order:

    Because there's a story it's trying to tell

    not every cutscene is worth watching. seriously.

    everything is fine except cutscenes cant skip. the story is boring anyways. hate the star wars universe. but previous star wars games were so bad that make this one best.

  • @b-cell Yeah unskippable cutscenes are the worst. My least favorite thing about Max Payne 3 by far.

    y least favorite thing about Max Payne 3

    the thing is. Max payne 3 cutscene are always worth watching. they are badass (except few of them are just tiresome)

  • @el-shmiablo I'm not a dev or anything but my understanding is the game is loading the next level in the background while cut scenes play out. If you could skip them I imagine it would just bump you to a loading screen which might be preferable to you.

  • @b-cell It's a good thing you've admitted to me elsewhere that you are just trolling these forums, otherwise I might actually take this kind of idiocy seriously.

    @TheMarcV To be honest having played the game so many times I am kind of numb to it, but it is still annoying to have to sit through several minutes of shit I've already seen whenever I want to start a new game.

  • even though i disliked unskipabble cutscene. im really enjoying it.

    its basically this gen POP sands of time in star wars skin.

  • Story wise the second half of this game was interesting to me but the bugs really took away my enjoyment of this game.

  • @iboshow
    What bugs have you encountered so far?

    So far I've encountered two, one small, one big.
    Small one was Cal refusing to grab a ledge until I left the planet. The other was the game not letting me respawn after dying

  • @dmcmaster before the patch 1.02, the map stopped appearing after a while, the button wouldn't work. Getting stuck in a corner in first person and not being able to move unless I defeated the enemy. This was really annoying if it was multiple enemies. Force closes on the latest patch a few times.
    Also, this game needs to learn from Uncharted on how to direct the player on where to go using colour. It annoys me when they sometimes do it. The game is trying to be so many games and loses its identity at times. I can't wait to see the sequel to this as it should be a goty nomination. This games isn't anywhere near goty but a great first step.

  • I'll agree the lack of direction can be a bit weird, like I've run down paths that I thought were the main path only to find out it was a optional path to a side boss

  • Finished the game finally and made it so that the platinum trophy dropped by the end of the story. Really liked the ending. This was a very solid game and a strong foundation for a sequel to build upon. A lot of the elements are already there, just need to fine-tune some of them etc.

  • I'm planning to get this very soon, and I heard there's some technical jank when this came out. Has there been any patches to address that?

  • @bam541 Somewhat? They fixed a few graphical glitches if I recall correctly, but for the most part the jank is still there.

  • @capnbobamous Ah bummer, gotta prepare myself for that. Thanks!

  • @bam541
    If you have a PS4 Pro I have found that setting the system to 1080p helps mitigate some of the technical issues, especially if you then set the game to favor performance.

  • @dmcmaster I definitely don't have a Pro, lol.

    I had a couple of hiccups with loading here and there, but I didn't really feel it was any massive issues. the combat was still smooth for me. Playing on base PS4

  • I forgot to mention this, but I stopped playing Fallen Order months ago. I traded it in for Doom Eternal. I tried, but the game could not hold my interests. I am not in to Dark Souls either.

  • Finally started the game earlier, I just reached the planet right after the train set piece and played for a bit more. My first impressions are:

    • I didn't know that it's going to be as cinematic as this. Big production values for sure. That train set piece was a great way to start things off.
    • The game looks pretty good on my PS4 Slim. I'm particularly enjoying how dramatically atmospheric the environments can be. The first planet was stormy as heck, while the second one felt a bit mysterious, but welcoming.
    • Sadly, there's quite a bit of texture pop-ins and stutters. They occur mostly outside of combat, but it's still annoying. I feel like in a cinematic game like this, technical problems like these are so impactful to the feel of the game.
    • I really like how Cal controls. Moving around, dodging, and slashing stuff felt smooth. The climbing/traversal isn't as smooth, but still okay. I do appreciate them not marking climbable surfaces with highlights like in the Uncharted games, it wouldn't work in a game like this.
    • Good music! It's so Star Wars, and that's awesome.
    • I'm loving BD-1 already, he's such a cutie.

    Hopefully I get to finish this in time so I can consider it for the upcoming Game of the Decade.

    @bam541 I ended up platinum it, which I really didnt plan on when I started it. As you said the combat is great and there is a great mix of environments which makes it more fun to explore. And yes BD-1 is just too cute!
