    The final preview is out and game looking like most innovative game in years. Cant wait.



  • Hopefully this turns out to be official. Fuck the Bethesda launcher, lol.



  • The review embargo is here, and it's getting great reviews, as expected from Arkane. I preordered the game seconds ago so I got the PS plus discount and able to pre-load it. Really excited for it!



  • Completely forgotten I had pre ordered this, Amazon says it's arriving today but ill find out for sure after work



  • Happy to see Arkane doing great. I'm personally still not sold on the world -or Redfall, so far - but once it comes to Game Pass I'll play it. One of my favourite developers, masters of game design.



  • This definitely a most innovative title in recent year as expected.

    although was not expecting 10s.



  • All i know is that the stupid theme song makes me hate this game.



  • I honestly find the soundtrack for this game to be spectacular. Like how the hell am I even supposed to concentrate on the game with bangers like these?

    Soundtrack of the year, easily.



  • Glad it's getting great reviews shame the AI is braindead I was hoping with this generation that we would see some innovation. I think I'll hold out until next year for gamepass, since I'll not feel guilty for not supporting Arkane since they're minted now. We don't get enough of these type of immerse sims. Soundtracks fucking class.



  • I watched the EZA review and all within the same 8 minutes I went from thinking I was wrong about the game and I just needed to see more of it played, to going full circle and thinking certain things are unappealing.

    I wasn’t expecting the braindead AI. That always bothers me in games like this. I also like being OP sometimes but I don’t know if it’ll benefit a game like this. Wondering if they’ll make some tweaks in a patch to the skill progression.



  • Finished the first loop, the morning then came again. It's pretty quickly starting to show that there is potential for those great scores the game's been getting. It feels very nice to play, both controlling Colt himself and just the game in general. The whole milieu is very strange and anachronistic, which gives the game a sort of weird over-all vibe that I am starting to like. Definitely some Dishonored roots are showing, but hey, why shouldn't they? Colt keeps talking to himself and Julianna a lot, which sits well into the situation, I feel. The huge puzzle starts to to unravel piece by piece, though there will be a huge number of said pieces, I reckon. I'm guessing I'll need only a few more hours with the game and I'm hooked in a big way. The first-person POV does a lot in that as well.



  • @el-shmiablo I completely agree. The transitions between the in-combat tracks and regular tracks are handled so well too. It happens so often for me (lol) and I don't mind it at all.

    The braindead AI is a disappointment for sure, especially after Dishonored 2's spectacular AI, but honestly it's just way more fun to go gung ho here, and since Colt's so easy to kill, I don't think the AI will impact my enjoyment in the long run since doing dumb shit will still get me in harm's way. So far I'm loving the game, it feels like a playground that keeps getting more fun to play in as you understand more of it and it's sublime.



  • I broke the loop!
    Pretty much an excellent video game. Only the story behind this all was left a little ambiguous and behind the audiologs etc., but otherwise I'd say this is my GOTY so far.
