i can see a sequel fixing a lot of the rough stuff. It had definate "first game in a series" issues.

I give them full props for making a switch port too

I played a bunch of that before I got bored and then started playing Tarkov. Definitely excited for the sequel.

I cannot overstate how much that game blew me away. And not just in a way where it did something other games already do, but better, not even just in a way where it did something completely different and new, but it does multiple completely different and new things, and ties them together so loving well.

I'm pretty sure I wrote up a spoilerfree effortpost about how impressed I was with the game, I'll dig it up after breakfast.

I just realized that it's been a long while since I played a game before going to work, and then didn't want to go to work, because it meant 9 hours of not playing said game.

Outer Wilds really brought something back out in me.

Just finished Outer Wilds in a marathon session today, because I simply couldn't put it down.

What an absolutely beautiful and wonderfully-done game. Mechanics-wise, story-wise, imagery- and setting-wise. Just an absolute loving delight to play.
Nothing gets dull, and even as you're starting to feel proximity to the finish line, the game still throws new concepts or puzzles at you, instead of introducing something at the beginning of the game and just have it recur over and over. So many "OH SNAP, THAT ADDS UP", or "OH THAT IS JUST SO drat COOL" moments, I can't put it into words.

And the implementation of quantum mechanics and other astrophysical concepts to tie the whole bundle together, so loving well done.

The ending brought tears to my eyes. I love being able to "play the ending", but then they somehow manage to throw a reveal in there, and suddenly something that's been accompanying you the whole game makes sense.

Just a super loving fun game that is incredibly well-done. For 20 bucks, no less.

edit : if you can get outer worlds on sale it is worth the price. its just not ground breaking or anything but it is fun

Yea my memory of it from release was that it was pretty loving bland, but I definitely had new vegas expectations.

Outer Worlds would have been way better if they spent a little more time fleshing out the story, and maybe cut like half of the Monarch stuff. My big beef with the game was that the middle "third" was over half my time spent with the game. By the time I was off that planet I was ready for the game to be done. It kind of felt like they went in with 8 hours of content to fill out a 12 plus hour game.

If Godzilla can do it, you know I can deliver!


I liked the game at least, enjoyed the story and music, and the setting was enjoyable.
