    Not liking their usage of "first proper console exclusive", when they meant "next-gen console exclusive", to differentiate it from the works of the work of other console exclusive titles that also released on last-gen Xbox One family. Just a minor nit-pick. Overall, they meant well in trying to hype the title.

    Really looking forward to playing on my 1060 and HDD. I could in principle install it to my SSD but doesn't seem like the fun thing to do. If my FPS get above 10 I'll be sorely disappointed.

    The game looks fantastic. They've clearly prioritised the right aesthetic aspects. Brilliant acting, well framed cinematics, mature dialogue. All around great.

    Resolution can be improved with future patches, but it's not a pressing issue anyway. Only the saddest, dweebiest of dweebs would look at a game this handsome and not allow themselves to enjoy it until it's 3840x2160 >90% of the time.

    I think the experience of seeing 2 different rendered worlds at the same time will be neat in it's own right. I will begin my playing todays

    Its a game from a smaller studio, and as others noted, their doing something unusual (two worlds at the same time), considering all that, it looks nice i think. And if reviews are to be believed, its a fun/enjoyable experience, which, afterall should be the most important factor of a game you play. Yes were on B3D, graphics before anything (myself included) :D

    Definitely. I haven't been following this game, so I didn't realise that's what it was doing until I watched the first 18 minutes video above. I assumed it was more along the lines of Soul Reaver.

    Impressive stuff. Satisfyingly mature tone too.

    enjoying it so far with about 2 hours in. Its not my typical game as i like a bit more action. However there is a weird hitching on my system. Its a 1700x , 32 gigs of ddr 3200 , nvme drive (3gb/s) and a 3080. It might be my cpu .

    The devs have made no mention of it coming to Playstation, when asked they wouldn't give an answer. So it's interesting that the PS glyph appears on that box.

    So PC or XSX? XSX has quick resume and faster loading, PC better graphics...

    I don't think it's really going to matter. Feels like wherever you are most comfortable playing it to be honest. If you pick a big screen with low lighting, and big sound, pretty damn scary. The reverse should dull the experience a bit.

    It's up to you, it can be creepy at times.

    PC is setup like the consoles - to my TV and amp etc...have an Xbox controller for gaming too (just playing Max Payne 3 actually which is quite good) - I think the performance of the PC will likely make it the place to play...
