I finished The Outer Worlds this afternoon and while I did enjoy the game, the ending felt fairly abrupt and it took me a minute to realise that was actually it.

I just beat Resident Evil Revelations 2

I still have the Extra/Bonus chapters to do (That'll probably take an hour or so each) and Raid mode is nowhere near done but the main campaign is over. I rather enjoyed it!

I don't think it really needed to be episodic though... Should've been just a normal release with a Claire campaign then a Barry campaign. Still good Resi fun though!

@KratosMD Bloody hell, I managed to write the wrong game name AGAIN! I have actually finished the Outer Worlds

@Thrillho I was about to say "Yeah, I'd heard similar about The Outer Worlds and its ending!" before I realised you'd written a different name and stopped myself.

But yeah, I'd heard similar about The Outer Worlds and its ending!

I almost feel obliged to buy the Outer Wilds now.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy never did finish Revelations 2. I did enjoy it though. My girlfriend played co-op with me but it was a bit of a drag for her not being able to attack.

Raid mode is fun too but the balancing is all over the shop so gets way to easy, especially when you’re playing co-op.

Fun though!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I've had that on my PS4 for years now. I assume Revelations 2 is fine in SP, right?

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

@kyleforrester87 Better than dumb ally AI, imo. It's the reason I refuse to touch RE5. The AI for partner characters is apparently really bad in that game.

With that said, if the game is built with multiplayer as the default play mode, it can be kind of boring in single-player mode. Some games really just need two or more people playing at the same time to shine.

@Ralizah eurghh I dunno, I can’t handle it in Resi 0. But yes you’re right, Resi 5 is unplayable for me solo.

Basically, I wouldn’t recommend either of those games single player but you’re probably right, character swapping is the better option.

Natalia is a bit boring to play as seeing as she can only use a brick once or twice @kyleforrester87 but I actually had a lot of fun playing as Moira, running into enemies headfirst when I realised she's pretty much invincible... took a few scares out of it actually 😂

And yeah I can see myself playing a stage or three of raid mode on a daily basis. It's pretty good arcadey fun even though I've only done the first ten or so on normal. Definitely fun though


The game is made with the co-op in mind as you've already gathered @Ralizah but it's more of a supportive role as Moira (For story reasons) will only use a crowbar and has a torch whilst Natalia can only use a brick that'll crumble after a few uses (She can do something else... but that's for you to find out)

There's a few puzzles that require switching characters but it's nothing too intensive and usually in a safe spot.

You'll have to switch characters to scrounge for secret caches of bullets, herbs, items or the hidden collectables as the AI won't automatically do that

But otherwise the supportive character is pretty much invunerable, follows you closely (and pretty well) and never needs healing... only using supplies (from their inventory) to heal you and your status' so I never had a problem with them to be honest.

You do have to buy a skill (yeah there's a skill tree) to make the AI shoot if you're playing as the partner/supportive character and the computer is in control of Barry or Claire (and they're a bit slow about it) but otherwise they're pretty competent and it's perfectly playable in single player.

The main campaign is pretty decent... The finale in particular was a highlight after what I thought was a bit of a shaky start for the fourth and final chapter and the third had a bit of a lull.

Funny how you mention Resident Evil 5 too Ralizah as it's got a few references in it to that entry in particular but you'll still be able to enjoy it without any knowledge as it's otherwise a standalone title.

@KratosMD I was thinking that I don't remember that part in The Outer Worlds!

@Thrillho Definitely had a similar experience with The Outer Worlds. Loved it for most of the game, but then the endgame suddenly had this oddly fast pace to it with an ending that came what felt like far too soon. I was fine with the ending itself however, and happy with the specific slides I got! Still super enjoyable and I'll be returning for the DLC no doubt.

@Thrillho I reloaded a previous save to see one of the other endings. There is good scope to replay too as there are certain missions locked behind some decisions you make.

Finished The Outer Worlds on Monday and have to agree re: the abrupt ending. It really felt like the game wasn't ready to end. The story was only just heating up and as a result it made it all feel a little shallow. The sudden appearance of villainess Sophia Akande seemed a bit strange, as for many players they might not have any dealings with her before the end. Anyhoo, in all the game is very enjoyable and the "Fallout in space" description is most apt. I loved Fallout 3 and New Vegas, so I enjoyed this too. Despite the abrupt ending I particularly enjoyed the central theme of the game and its critique of unrestrained capitalism. Moral choices and dialogue checks were perhaps at times a little shallow, particularly when conversing with very easily persuaded foes.

Hot on the heels of Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD completions I finished The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I shall work on reviews of all three.

@Tjuz @JohnnyShoulder @mookysam The ending really did come from nowhere and having gone for most of the “good” outcomes, I had so many people supporting me at the end that I didn’t have to kill a single person so just waltzed through the final level.

I agree that the character Mooky mentions comes from nowhere and it would seem a bit too much of a juxtaposition to suddenly back them after all the good work I’d done.

Having read alternate endings, I’m a big fan of the idiot ending of accidentally jump skipping the Hope into the sun

I also enjoyed the game overall but agree with other people on here who say it is a solid 7.

@mookysam @Thrillho You can be on the same side as Sophia and you get some extra missions. Also you can choose to dob in Welles when you are on the Groundbreaker and again you get some extra missions which you will not see unless you go down that path. I never fully trusted Welles and The Board are mentioned all the way through the game as manipulating things, so it didn't come as a surprise when she was introduced and there was also the Minister of the Earth, and I kinda knew there was someone else pulling the strings.

But I agree the last prison level did seem a bit rushed. Personally it took me ages as I was trying to fight my way through and was getting destroyed. It wasn't until I respecced that I was able to gas everyone and waltz through.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, I did the corrupted signal on Welles' computer. What made me laugh is that when she was confronted at the end of the game she said something like "you were the finest agent I ever had". The bar must've been low. 😂

@JohnnyShoulder @mookysam How do you mean "the Minister of Earth?"

I went back to a late save and robbed Welles in and did Sophia's mission (I did like the "Ludwig was right" trophy from that line) but otherwise the overall ending was similar.

I did also fart apart to get extra trophies for the kills with the toss ball bat, 300 inhaler uses (annoying), and 75% negative faction standing. The latter is quite easy when you can one-shot kill civilians.
