Being up late and playing in the dark all alone feeling isolated from everything is pretty much the feeling you get in this game. I'm not sure I would have stuck with it to the end if I was in a different state of mind. You are given the option to continue on after the final credits roll but I think I'm taking a break.

A well earned break

Gumby-cr Stopped playing early this morning when I reached episode 11. We are now officially at Kojima craziness for sure. There are a few episodes where you play it as a shooter but they are pretty short. It was a nice change of pace but I'm glad this game didn't go that way. Now being at the end of this console generation (PS4/XBOX ONE) I can safely say this is the most beautiful game I've played this generation. Makes me excited for the next generation of consoles that come out next year.



The only nitpicks I have for this game is the vehicles (they control pretty bad) and the boss fights. They are easy to say the least. I've only had one voidout and that was early in the game. I think it was part of the story anyways and was unavoidable. Probably going to buckle down tonight and get this game finished.

I can see how this game isn't for everyone but I'm loving it To me this game is like a breath of fresh air compared to most other games. Turning out to be game of the decade for myself. I do enjoy weird games though.

Reading the reviews and the comments after the reviews, people are polarized for sure....love it or hate it. My overall thought was the game would be tedious. But, I also got the sense that it gets better the farther you go, but that takes a long time. Some of the highlights that I've read about, that I'm sure you've seen, everyone is talking about the multiplayer aspect, where people can drop stuff in game to help other players. And seems like later on in the game, the combat feels like MGSPP.

ADRUNKK I've been watching someone play this on Twitch for about 8 hours so far. It's not really the game for me. It looks like a FedEx delivery simulator, with a baby, a crappy motorcycle, and weird demons that follow you but loose interest if you get to far away from them.

I fell down a hill once so far. Not only can you carry items on your back but also your shoulders,arms,waist. You can carry an extra pair of boots for different terrains. Everything gets damaged too out in the wild. Playing this on a HDR 4k monitor it's fantastic looking. When your BB (baby) that you are carrying gets scared the cries come out through the controller. Freaked me out a bit the first time it happened
