I tried Oddworld and didnít get out of the cave before turning it off. Itís very gamey and bland and doesnít feel like my thing at all. Maybe my 11 year old will like it. I dunno. Also, bruh, forget about her. You mean nothing to her. I donít even know who she is and Iím over her. Talk about them stitches over his mouth being an Incel analogy. Holy poo poo.

"Gamey" is such an odd description for a game.

He very well may not like it anyways, but I think it's funny he was able to make so many snap judgements about a game he has functionally played zero of. Because that first section is basically like Oddcharted or something, but that isn't how oddworld plays at all. It was a pretty weird way to start the game for newcomers, because you wouldn't get the idea that it's a puzzle platformer with stealth for the most part from it.

Also I literally have no idea what he's talking about with the incel poo poo lol.

Played a few hours of OddWorld: SoulStorm, I enjoyed it! Some of the puzzles are very tight though, and don't allow for really any flexibility. You're kinda just trying a puzzle until you figure out the exact solution.

It is definitely really funny to play less than ten minutes of a game and then get on the internet and write a review for people as if you opinion is actually based on anything that matters at all.

I dunno. The first 10 minutes of Disco Elysium had me loving sold. I said based on my first impression it ďwasnít for me.Ē That doesnít mean it might not be for you. And I donít know anything about the Oddworld story, but based on the opening cutscene some girl sewed Abeís mouth shut yet he canít get over her. So he can only be happy if she lets him? Sounds pretty much like toxic codependency to me OP. You know what, your right. This definitely isnít a game for my 11 year old daughter.

His mother sewed his mouth shut as a baby because he cried all of the time and the corporation that captured and enslaved them would slaughter him for it. He keeps the stuches as it's become part of his identity.

Dude. Itís called the Oedipus complex and itís not that unheard of? I just googled ďAbeís odyssey Oedipus complexĒ and, who wouldíve guessed, the original working title for the game while in development was ďAbeís Oedyssey.Ē

wait what, on the ps5 version? dammit, i was hoping to do the kojima mission this time since i missed it before. cant believe they keep finding new ways to gently caress up the game and make me dislike it when it was an unblinking GOAT that year.

After the first few hours, from what I can fell it might as well be. The first few levels/plot/etc.. don't have any similarity to Exoddus, which starts in a similar factory as Oddyssey. Seems like they took the same starting point (you just saved 300 slaves from the factory and you're on the run) but the actual game bit is new. I'm enjoying it, didn't like Stranger or Munch but I'm glad it feels like the others and the crafting stuff is extremely light. The world design is fun as always.

maybe they shouldnít assume that people playing a flagship exclusive for a brand new console have played or remember a game that had a remake 7 years ago or initial release almost 25 years ago and they can put (Abe is talking about his mother) in subtitles so itís not extremely weird

Its the main drawback of the abundance of free games available now. It's so easy to just move on to the next thing, which means that games that might take a little while to get into but are really rewarding will inevitably get left by the wayside (I also deleted The Witness after a few minutes).

I mean yeah if you have an attention defecit and have to make a snap judgement on a game before even leaving a tutorial area, that's fine I guess. Just means you miss out on a lot of great games.

Who was the guy that played HZD and got bored before they even finishing the child Aloy section?

Edit: I should clarify that I've never played a single Abe's Odyssey game. The only thing I know about them is that it's possible to beat the first one (I think) if you're blind - actually legally blind - due to its sound design.

My wife and I are enjoying the hell out of It Takes Two. The storyline is pretty cheesy and childish, like a low effort Pixar movie, but the puzzles and action are pretty fun without the co-dependence of abilities being TOO aggravating in an Overcooked way.

Good fun. I wish there were more couch co-op games like this.

Maybe, but to be honest at this point I tend to know if something is working for me or if it's not. I would say games are the same as TV series or books where if I peace out half an hour in, 95% of the time the only thing returning gets me is that I get a little further before dropping it again. And even the 5% is mostly stuff that I knew at the time might have just been me not in the right mindset to enjoy it.

I could actually see the PS4 struggling to play this, but it probably really came down to Sony just throwing a lot of money at this project and asking that it be made PS5 exclusive. The game runs at what looks like native 4K, and for sure 60fps, even during the cutscenes. The cutscenes and game world are really detailed, this is a very pretty looking game, especially during the cutscenes. Even though the camera is a 2D side scrolling perspective. There are moments during the cutscenes where it almost looks like CGI.

That was probably me too. I made some joke post about the girlís face being so off putting I couldnít trust the devs had my best interests at heart and I couldnít play any further. But I actually finished the game and loved it (although yeah, the face animations ARE pretty stiff).

Veni Veni Veni, I recognize I made a snap judgement off the tutorial, which felt like the iPad game Boulder Run. But maybe the game is much more than that, like you say. I will play it again for longer, and see. I trust you and many otherís in hereís posting and so I probably did bail too early.
