There’s a lot of woke stuff in this game which really bothered me, but if you get past that it’s a great game. Art is great, great music, and unique enemies. Just wish there was a way to make enemies respawn faster to grind some xp

1:11 Oh, you mean like a *linear* experience? Yeah, that used to be game standard back in the day. The games from Japan did at least let you choose yes or no, though.

I got absolutely rinsed by the final boss. Looking at the healthcare doesn't help when you go in under-prepped and realize said boss also spawns a shit ton of mooks to fight you.

@Echantediamond 1 How would I need to play to hit the 8-10 range?

To actually answer your question, it would take about 8 to 10 or 16 to 20 for how you want to play.

From some of the footage I saw your characters have free movement until their attack within their movement range. That seems like a very comfortable feature. Reminds me of the many regrettable one half-frame misclicks in xcom

I like the look of the combat, but I'm not really sold on the rest. Maybe a bit more depth in that system and a different setting and you'd have me.

Just a random thought, but I don't like instant victory buttons, not even if it makes the game more accessible or avoids grinding. It just demotivates me to continue on. Why play the game if the game offers to play itself?

@NiamhNyx What? Of course I don't. Multiplayer games are built upon shared experiences so those kind of concessions would be near impossible to implement, and to clarify, if we're only talking about achievements then sure that's fine. The initial comment only took issue with the autoplay feature.

@Crispman 777 I bet you also believe that in multiplayer games, I must be gatekeeping when i refuse to let someone in a raid because their gear is to low. Its not gate keeping, there is a difference. If you play a game on easy, you should get an achievement, sure, but not the same one for hard. Achievement hunting in games is not a no effort thing to do. You should have to work for it, not be given it on a silver platter. If an instant win button does that, it takes away all the feeling behind achieving something noteworthy.

@NiamhNyx I can't and won't let gatekeeping slide. It's just a shitty attitude to have, especially when another's experience doesn't impact your own.

Wait, so it is a Linear story game that let's you just skip the combat? Why even have combat then? Just commit to puzzle and story if you are going to do that.

Some people want the story without the combat. Some people want the added challenge of the combat. Why not appease both by having the combat be optional?

Optional combats regarding non-story related, which means there is enocunters/battles you must go trough (like bosses, for examples)

Ngl, and this is probably a side effect of terrible game journalism these days, but this game looks woke af, which is a huge turn off. Can someone give me a woke rating from 1 to 10 with 1 being postal 2 and 10 being Tacoma

@M.T.N. Entertainment Hmm... that kinda contradicts your later replies then... either way it's a pretty terrible metric to gauge the quality of a game regardless of correlations.

@Crispman 777 I asked that question specifically because if the person who is giving me the review is woke, and they say that the game is woke, I know to not trust that review. But if woke people tell me a game isn't woke, then I know I don't have to deal with a bias, or that the bias is AGAINST the game, which means if it is still reviewed highly then it must be really good.

@Narco Zero the thing is, the woke left already have that reaction when they see white people. For example take a look at the reaction to baldur's gate 3 by THE DEVELOPERS OF THE GAME complaining that the player base made too many white people characters. On top of that I never mentioned race, nor sexuality. I simply noticed that a supposedly fantasy game had characters that looked straight out of Portland. This gave me a (correct) impression that this was a game made by people who cared more about having token representation than an actual solid game. However, I prefer to give the benefit of the doubt that the modern urbanite character design consisting of clothing like leggings, jeans, tank tops, and button up shirts with ties, may just be an aesthetic thing, not an indication that this was going to be a game where the mere fact that non white, non straight character exists would be seen and used as a shield from all criticism. The easiest way to determine this is to ask: "how woke is it"? If it's seen as woke, by woke people, chances are it's not actually a good game, just a token game. But if it's not seen as woke by woke people and yet is still reviewed highly, then one can safely assume the effort was actually put into building a really good game. When a woke person tells me a game they like is woke, that's all I need to hear, because from that point on I no longer trust that they are giving me a valid opinion, just that they want to promote the religion of woke-ism.

@M.T.N. Entertainment To take your reverse example. If the game tried to push the "trump agenda" it would be like you asked "There seem to be a lot of white people in this game. Can i get a trump rating on this game ?" and then when confronted tried to explain at length to randoms fucks of the internet how you have nothing against white people, you just wanted to know if the game was good, while saying most white people games are bad. I understand where you're coming from, but you gotta admit that it didn't quite come out the way you wanted it. You could have simply said "How solid is the core gameplay if we disregard any story or flavor ?" if that's what really mattered to you.

I think that you'll find that you'll get less blowback if you rephrase your questions to ask what you actually want to know. A simple "how deep is the gameplay?" or "are the characters themselves well written?" should get you further than sounding like a red pill-er. I understand the patterns that you're seeing (I too find it frustrating, especially when it goes against the initial intention of spreading positive messages) but that kind of questioning only angers people and doesn't actually guarantee you the information you want if answered.
