    Pretty much an automatic buy for me, just because I like what I've seen and even when Remedy's games are flawed, they've always offered me something I like.

    Is the story related to Quantum Break?

    I'm playing this game for the aesthetics, even if it ends up being shit, but I expect it to be reasonably good.

    The demo was very very hard. No one I knew was able to finish it in time lol. I didn't really get to know what was happening either, all very confusing. Graphics were amazing though. Plays a bit like Last of Us from what I could gather.

    Glad to see the reviews that are coming in, are very positive. Holding a 81-82 with game review critics (Metacritic) and mostly high 80s among gaming boards.

    Can't wait to play the PC edition tomorrow....:yep2:

    Destructoid gave it a 9/10. They tend to score a lot lower than other sites,

    Tried the game a bit..
    Laughed by ass off for the first encounter.
    Amazing to see a game with a character who speaks fluent rally english.

    After seeing a lot of footage of the game on Twitch, I wonder how much of the game was inspired by SCP (http://www.scp-wiki.net/ )?

    The OOPs and AWEs would be right at home in the SCP database.

    Looks awesome. I went ahead and ordered 2080 TI for this one and my as yet to play copy of Metro Exodus.
    Release timing is great, just finally done with main storyline on Red Dead Redemption 2 on XBox.

    Good gameplay this, story telling that, metroidvania maps something, third person shooting whatever, yada yada yada...
    Ugh...

    Who cares?

    I wanna know what door knobs look like on this game! Why have no reviews mentioned the freaking knobs yet?

    I do see some of the same rendering issues from quantum break pop up, like light leaking around doors etc. Wish I had an RTX card to fix all of that.

    In the PC version most have handles or just those plates where you push them and they open. :yep2:

    Performance looks horrendous on console. I'd avoid it like the plague unless they somehow fix it.

    The average to occasionally nice graphics on the consoles don't warrant the heavy performance dip at all, this is a grainy, blur fest of a game that's heavily poly starved only redeemed slightly by usage of physics and destruction. Not a fan of this tradeoff personally. And no HDR, what a let down.
