why? it's a game where it's fun to live with your bad rolls. just save often so you don't die at any of the minor difficult parts and live with your choices, like the protagonist does.

Well now I haven't touched the game in many months so I'll probably restart one last time with the new update and experience it anew.

I love DE but I don't think I'm ready to play it again just to hear voice acting that I'm mostly going to skip through. I hope whoever they found to say HARDCORE TO THE MEGA eighty times really commits.

he 100% does

I picked this up on the ps4 and the load times between areas are insanely long. Is it that bad on PC too?

Be the change you want see in the world


PS4 version is buggy and crashes but it's the only version I've ever known and it's still pretty great.

Maybe during the initial load, but not really a problem between areas.

I have it on my HDD on pc and it only takes a while on first boot. Actual loading is pretty fast.

fwiw disco elysium isn't the kind of game you need an epic graphics card or w/e. generally a console gamer so i can easily see things on the TV but the amount of text in DE definitely makes it better as a PC game IMO

Game is extremely good, every time I think I’m getting stuck or running out of leads new stuff opens up. Lots of internet people talk about the politics and the communism stuff but I’ve been having a blast as an inland empire art cop just getting super abstract and conceptual with everything I run into. It felt like leveling was super slow but then I got the “get exp for every artsy answer” thought and have more skill points than I know what to do with

It's a very good game and the writing pwns. It feels very free even if at the end of the day you're a burned out loser cop no matter what. Its just full of charm the whole way through.

yeah, the pacing really works well that way, you sort of get down to the rocky bottom of your list and then just when you think you're going to hit a wall, seven new things open up. and you can sort of play him however you want because almost everything has a "gain experience for every time you use this thought" thing. you can easily play most of the game ranting about feminism, the otherwordly apocalypse, or how much you enjoy drugs and it still works out. you can play him as a guy who hit his rock bottom and is finally getting better or as someone who's still circling the drain. just about the only thing he can't be is over his ex-wife.
