Outside of Death Stranding, that sure is a boring list of games up there. Borderlands more like BORED-ERLANDS. or whatever

The reason everyone is doing a 180 and calling the game amazing now is because after 10 hours the game pulls a MGS2 and Norman Reedus dies and you play the rest of the game as Norm Macdonald.

This would be amazing. Conversely, put Norm in the game as one of these celeb NPCs, and when you find him you get locked into an unskippable cutscene of just him telling this joke:

Also that the NDA they had to sign was the most ridiculous one they'd ever seen and that certain spoiler/plot points were marked as 'do not mention'. I didn't ask for any details on the game and they didn't give me any.

I'm not reading the full reviews cause I don't want to risk spoilers from them, but the summaries all make it sound like there's a ton of just walking which... is awesome, that's exactly what I wanted. I saw the small bit of "combat" gameplay they showed and hoped that wasn't a very large portion of the game. I'm all about his loving weird nonsense fedex simulator

I only got to play an hour of it (it is late here) but despite them throwing a billion confusing and weird things at you at once, and despite them talking about things and using words and phrases that you have zero context for, it all feels like it has some kind of internal logic. Like it doesn't just feel like you're being fed a bunch of nonsense, it feels like everything being said all makes sense by the end of this.

Content check: could a 9yo kid watch this game played without being scarred or growing up to be a Metal Gear villain?

I was really hyped about this for a while based on advance reviews, but the actual player word of mouth seems a lot more subdued.

I think the parts with the BTs could be pretty scary but every 9 year old is different.

I'm really enjoying what I'm seeing so far. Granted I'm not very far in yet, but I think the story and the characters and writing are all perfectly fine. It absolutely nails the atmosphere it's going for

The only things I'm kind of "eh" about right now is A) the having to keep your balance when lugging around certain packages isn't really a fun mechanic and B) I wish directional line from you to the objective took into account an actual route, because I've had to stop and back track and go around a wall or mountain or waterfall a few times

That's a good thing, would you want all the navigation in a game about navigation to be done automatically for you?

I would yeah to be honest. Or the option to have it do that if I want. I'm not super interested in doing it manually. You have to navigate the terrain either way

I'm enjoying all the other gameplay stuff though. The sneaking around BTs is properly tense

I don't understand what I'm supposed to do at this part where I have to make the bridge for the first time. It clearly wants me to build a bridge in the specific spot. but there's already part of a bridge there. Am I supposed to be building next to it? I must have missed the instructions here somewhere

So after you get the bike, you get a job to bring a thing back to the first city in the region a thing in 30 minutes. A cool thing was that on the way there, I have come across two player made generators so my bike has gotten fuel refills on the way there. Running into player made stuff is super cool.

Today I learned you can't just power through BT areas with your bike. I just reloaded my save since I just left a place. But yeesh it dismounts you from your bike and also makes you drop a ton of your cargo. Then drags you quite a ways away

Wow that boss fight was super cool. I was honestly dreading it because I tend to dislike combat in a lot of games. But it was actually a lot more forgiving than I was expecting and visually the whole thing was stunning

I do my best to help build every road I see. It's so cool to see them develop and I feel like I've contributed to a group effort. Which is exactly the theme of the game

It was neat loading up my game this morning and walking out of the base and seeing a new bridge just, there, that another play built at some point overnight.
