I'm buying this one too day one. I don't like pre orders as a business practice, so not doing that.

These last few weeks I've been up and up on this game. Getting really excited now. This game has the potential to be 2021's sleeper hit.

@velio84 Bobby Krlic did the score? Dang, that's really high profile.

@kyleforrester87 I liked Automata but I remember hating the first Nier on Ps3 (well, the music was lovely...) so I am waiting for some reviews and users impressions

Never belligerent but always uncompromising.

@Voltan @Feena @TraCuz- Yeah, buddy — preorder done! I went for the physical disc. I just hope I don’t forget to pick it up from the store on release day. I haven’t preordered a physical release since.... Spider-Man, I guess.

@Kidfried Totally agree that this game is likely being undersold and I feel like it will be a critical darling of 2021.

I liked their previous releases, good devs, but €80 for a game? , no way josé, not ever, I bet the game will be quite good though

@Th3solution Nice - I went with physical as well but I'm getting it delivered to me.

If you have disc ps5 the game can be preordered on many places with 10% discount. I think even the digital standard version has a discount on the ps store. It’s still expensive but it’s something.

On another note, the housecast ep. 5 is up. At the moment you can only see it on the playstation store, it’s not up on youtube yet. It’s about the enemy types and has some new gameplay. And of course, it looks awesome

@Th3solution Sweet! I unfortunately work the day of its release so I'll be a little late to the first impressions discussions. Also I noticed you changed your picture! May Mimir rest in peace.

@TraCuz- yeah, i work that day too, so I’ll be a little late to the party as well. Thankfully I have the whole weekend after that.
But yeah, as much as I am slowly converting to the convenience of digital, I like the option of having the disc to sell if for some reason I end up not liking it. PS5 game discs are holding their value a lot right now. My local GameStop has almost no second hand PS5 games and I think the second hand market will be a seller’s market for a while. ...of course I fully expect to adore the game and with its potential replayability I predict it’ll be one I keep forever in my collection.

And yes, my Returnal hype inspired me to change my profile pic. Mimir is great, but it’s time to show Selene some love. 😄

@Th3solution Yeah I honestly think Returnal is gonna exceed expectations, and that's an interesting bit on physical merch. I can say the main things I'm looking forward to is the gun customization, dualsense features, and 3d audio. I'm keeping my expectations for the story low. That way if it's bad I'm not too disappointed, and if it's a good I can be a little blown away.

You have any predictions for review scores? I feel like it's gonna sit in the high 80s, 85-88.

@TraCuz- Hmm... I’ve been feeling an 8 or 9/10 coming, so a Metacritic score in the 80’s is certainly in the range of what I was thinking. Of course basing it entirely on preview footage, rumor, and good ol’ Sol “gut instinct” 😅. To me, the little bits of story that we’ve been given sound really good actually — How there is some kind of mystery to the planet and Selene’s past, it has me curious to know what her story is. I like the fact she has these flashbacks to a home and some kind of earth life.

I have a good feeling about the story, as the narrative designer worked on Control previously (not as the lead writer but still) and I liked that one a lot.
And yeah, I also think it will be in the 80s metascore range.

TraCuz-

@Th3solution @Voltan Yeah they definitely have an interesting premise. I'm looking for to see how they choose to deliver the story and if it'll be anything like Hades. Not sure if you guys played or not, but with each subsequent escape attempt a new story chunk is delivered. I wonder if they'll have a similar approach.

@TraCuz- unfortunately I haven’t played Hades yet but I definitely will when/if it comes to PlayStation

@TraCuz- @Voltan I hear a ton of praise for Hades, but haven’t played it either. I seem to recall a lot of people saying it should have received more awards last year

Just realized Monday after the release is May 3rd, which is a national holiday here in Poland. Longer weekend, baby.
Now I just gotta hope they don’t screw up the delivery on the 30th 🙃

@Th3solution Yeah I probably put about 15-20 hours into Hades, and pick it up here and there. Very fun game, although I'm not as hot on it as a lot of people I definitely see the GOTY potential.

@Th3solution Hades is absolutely brilliant. The fact that it elevated rogue-likes by that much is crazy. It’s like it took the elements of that genre and then filled in the blanks to make it a full proper experience. The story and character interactions are what make the game great which isn’t what you’d expect for a rogue-like. Plus it’s only about £20 😉

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@TraCuz- @nessisonett really surprised there’s been no mention of a PS4 version yet... I’m starting to consider wrestling the switch back from the missus just so I can try it!

I ain’t ever met a souls-like I didn’t like!

TraCuz-

@nessisonett I honestly didn't know what I was getting into when I got this game, it was so interesting each time you die you learn something new and I always appreciated the dialogue when you pick up boons. Some favorite characters of mine are Nyx, Eurydice, and Chaos. Any favorite builds? I always like having Athena's reflective dash, and putting Zeus and Artemis on my special.
