Hype mildly deflated as I absolutely loathed TLoU. Will still buy day 1.

Can anybody says something about the PS4 version in terms of:

- Pro support
- Framerate
- Resolution

I'm not playing a 1080p/30 FPS game in 2017. If the pro version doesn't feature 1440p/30 FPS or 1080p/60 FPS, I'll go PC.

First early review I've found: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kEhFemVtapQ

No idea who the guy is, never heard of him before. He just seems like some guy who got the game early, and he also seems a bit biased towards this franchise, so yeah, perhaps it's best to take this with a grain of salt, but... he loved the game, and gave it a 9/10. Decent review that seemed to go into everything in a fair amount of detail, but with no major spoilers.

I didn't like the reveal that the whole thing was just in the head through some inception dream machine. It kind of watered down the premise for me in the first game knowing that none of it is was real and was in the head. Made me lose interest to continue till the end. Had the story made it clear from the start that it's a dream machine (like Inception did) I'd have been better prepared and not disappointed by the premise as it wouldn't have blindsided me the way it did in the first game. Which is why I'm now looking forward to the 2nd game since I know from the start that it's a dream world.

I was expecting it to be closer to TWE1/RE and not TLoU.

Most hyped game of the year for me tbh. The first one is one of my top 3 games of the gen, rough edges and all, so Iím very curious to see how the changes to the formula an art direction will feel on the whole. Iím hoping itíll at least be as good as the first one, but topping Mikami is no easy task.

Chapter 3 so far..... Iím doing everything while progressing the story missions.

The first TEW was an average game for me, not memorable.

But this..... oh guys, this is a HUGE step forward from the first game, itís seriously a HQ survivor horror game.

Everything is an upgrade... the only thing that bothers me is the stupid awful character movement animations... one of the worst Iíve seen.

Other than that... this game is freaking great and exceeded my expectations and it feels much more like a complete package of a game :-)

It can't possibly be worse than in the TEW1, can it?

Aside from that, thanks for the info. My shop shipped my copy today so I should have it by tomorrow. Will hold it back until Saturday evening though and then jump in after my gym training. Can't wait.

Why didn't you care for the first game? That would help me understand what you feel are improvements.

I have no idea why they didnít change it... itís very uncomfortable and awkward :/


Other than that... the game is a very solid survival horror game ;-)

Everything about it felt average... and some of the forced action chapters.

But this... everything about it ( aside from the animation movement of course ) screams High Quality!

at this point I have to wonder whether sony asked reviewers to kindly avoid any PRO comments.

it's been asked a ton of times in the differents thread, we have reviewers in those threads posting and and they just ignore the questions. what's going on?

I'm hyped too, but also admittedly a bit nervous about the new director (the DLC's were just OK for me) and some of the changes made to the formula (open-world sections, side quests, no matches, etc.), but still hopeful that this will be a great followup.

The streams I've seen were all for X1 and PC so far. All I know for sure is that the back of the box doesn't list PRO support, but the official PlayStation website does, so Idk.

I mentioned a few days ago that i've seen a running animation that is easily worse than the first game, Sebastian looks behind himself whilst running and the movements look really arkward with legs like the pumpkin king and a twisting head like the exorcist.
I was hoping it was just from that section of the game or an old build but maybe not.

I'm pleased to hear everything else is improved though.

Here we go! Nier, Zelda, Resident Evil 7, so many games overperformed my expectations in 2017. I'm cautiously optimistic about EW2, so hopefully it similarly overperforms and we have a genre masterpiece on our hands.

I would say they're definitely better then the first, but not a major step up. It's what you would expect from a sequel using the same engine and "template".

Better example is how CDPR made 7000 new animations for Blood and Wine in a year. For Ubisoft it's manpower and funds.
