Kinn Remind Me Again...
Which recent FPSes have a cartoon fantasy graphical style to them??
SC0RN 14minutes Ultra-slow Console Gameplay At FOV55
thanks to Vondur for posting it on discord.
Watch the unsettling and horrifying results in this exclusive 13-minute gameplay video.
I am unsettled and horrified by how boring that game looks.
This is awesome. Loving the slow pacing and high weirdness factor. Seems like a game that would take forever to make.
On the plus side it is definitely looking more like a game, and the graphics are 11/10.
On the other hand, the FOV55 and perma-walk mode look alarmingly sluggish, and it still seems to be just saying BUY THIS GAME BECUZ GIGER (or that other artist dude I forget) and WEIRDO BIOMECHANICAL PORN HERP DERP.
Would like to see if it can make it more intringuing than the initial thematic impact, and carry that over a whole game and maintain interest.
to see what it is about, as till now seemed more like an interactive movie and now the gameplay feels like it is along the lines of the one in the first three games in the Alone in the Dark series.
The implementation of ideas for gameplay as nice, even if the ideas themselves are not novel. What i miss is that the theme of the level now feels more conventional, and a faster release as at this pace reminds me of those game that took too long and ended up being disappointing.
Yeah, this reinforces my reaction to the previous videos.
+ Great looking environments. (though I kind of wish the lighting was more dramatic and spookier)
- Looks too slow to be a shooter, not scary enough to be horror, and puzzles not interesting enough to be an adventure game.
On The Subject Of Games Trying To Rely Entirely In A Particular Theme.
Succubus prologue walkthrough. Guaranteed work-safe, family-friendly, and suitable for good honest Christian viewing everywhere.
the first demo showed serious problems in level design: samey looking corridors that are hard to figure out which one you have already visited and which one you haven't explored yet. Also, I didn't manage to finish the demo because I had no idea what I had to do to progress. That was ~2 years ago and I hope it gets better. The visuals are stunning for sure.
In Other News.
The Outer Worlds is out on Steam, with that sweet sweet egs-exclusive-paid-beta-test discount after a year.
But I'm Currently Playing....
Hard Reset. Missed this one the first time around, tried the demo as above. Plays okay, looks very nice. Seems legit. £10 or £15 for the Redux revamped version.
Styx 2. Or Styx 1.01. Exactly the same gameplay, exactly the same annoying 4th wall-breaking protagonist, but with prettier backgrounds.
How's my Cyberpunk 2077 dudes, dudettes, and anything in between, doing??
I've leaving it for the moment until it's patched to shittery and on sale, but....anyone having fun with it??
haven't played cyberpunk yet but I am mildly interested that the dead space 1 creator/EP is working on a new sci-fi horror game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGJEcLxqTdU
Since EA doesn't seem to want to revisit the actual franchise.
I saw that on Blues this morning. Only cinematic video tho? Might look anyway.
Okay Yeah That Does Look Cool.
More DS welcome.
yeah no actual gameplay to show us, so really it's just a fancy announcement rather than a reveal of anything.
Well, Cyberpunk 2077 is pretty much unplayable for me. I hoped I'd get around 30 FPS if I lowered settings, but I get around 20 FPS rather and there's not much I can do about it either. Apart from the fact that I can hardly play it at all, I didn't like the long intro section at all, which is more like a film than a game.
Guess I'll let it collect dust until I buy a new PC.
Something A Bit Different:
Hellpoint Demo with commentary and derping. Abstract dark sci-fi soulslike. Could be of interest....
New Dead Space-ish
Could be interesting, although apparently it's set in the PUBG universe? Not sure how that's going to work out.
I'm literally looking forward to Crimson Desert on PC
trailer shows no crimson, no desert, and gameplay starts a bit late. And camera looks pretty janky. But could be cool....
Crimson Desert looked great until the cartoon green orc mens turned up :(
I'd be more than willing to overlook the green men based on the rest.
I didn't see any cartoon green orc mens??
I did see some truly appalling motion blur and almost equally bad sparking lighting effects in combat tho.
