There's some cool stuff in there and I enjoyed it but it doesn't ever stop being what it is. Your character's an rear end in a top hat and a robophobe, nobody has legs, everything's a mite too slow, inventory management suuuucks. But there is actual plot and ancient mysteries, including the eponymous vault; if you're just looking for reassurance that there's actually something there, there is. It's not all reading inscriptions off of shovel handles.

But if you're not at least slightly charmed by the jank I wouldn't keep going. Fwiw they come by "never made a video game" honestly, Inkle are IF/CYOA folks and their reach exceeded their grasp a little on this one. Better that than the opposite, imo.

Thanks. I'm probably going to return it. I actually like the inscriptions on shovel handles and the IF/CYOA thing shows, as while walking around I had several thoughts about how the game would be better with at text/VN/Myst style system.

My tolerance for jank is pretty high, but this just isn't the standard charming ha-ha Eurojank that comes from a bunch of systems interacting to produce bizarre glitches and occasional crashes but a kind of contempt for the players time baked into every moment of gameplay. I haven't even gotten to inventory management.

I'm assuming that this was meant to be "I'm actually going to post in the thread this time" and your keyboard had a catastrophic malfunction

I'm really rooting for you to be able to complete your goal of posting this month. In order to support you, I'm offering a bit of tough love. If you can post in this thread at least 20 times before October 1st, including at least one post each week (meaning the 1st through 5th, 6th through 12th, 13th through 19th, 20th through 26th, and 27th through 30th), then you will have successfully completed your earnest goal of posting in the thread this time

If, however, you fail to meet this goal, despite so many months of no doubt concerted effort, I will have no choice but to conclude that these posts are not earnest statements of a desire to post, but rather insincere gimmicks, and I will be forced to respond to them with the harshest slap on the wrist I am capable of, a sixer, in each future thread you post them in

If you do meet the goal, I will try to talk the actual mods into giving you a free av change or something, but I am just a lowly IK and cannot actually promise that, myself.

as i mentioned in the previous thread, don't worry about 'emergent'-style pointless quests, don't worry about loot. just enjoy the story and maybe do a few sidequests, the ones with bosses

Don't judge me.



I adore Control. While it has the usual Remedy flaws with combat, the setting and presentation is superb. If last year wasn't so good for games overall, it would have been a GOTY candidate.

I'm excited to play Tony Hawk this weekend. I should also finally beat Shadowbringers (5.0), which means I'll be very close to NieR raids and 5.3, which sounds WILD. It should be a good weekend.

I'm excited for Genshin Impact as well as that wizard battle royale game. September looks like it's going to be a good month for new free-to-play games!

Definitely do all the fixed, premade sidequests. Don't do the Bureau Alert popups (unless they get in your way) and don't bother with the Board Countermeasure random missions.

The board countermeasures can be a good easy excuse to try different loadouts, plus you can just drop them and see if the RNG's spitting out more appropriate ones (and sometimes it may be necessary because they may need you to kill stuff that won't spawn in your current world state).

There’s the answer

I don’t exactly know what gamepass is tbh, but it do know that it’s been accumulating value
