Why are they always filling their screens with numbers. 50xp for each kill yeah.

Though the game does look nice.

Nice write up astroturfer Bend PR person.

Looks OK still but maybe your next video will sway me.

Looks OK. I liked the previous videos better. The repeated dialogue "he killed them" already annoyed me in this short 5 min. clip. Not sure how I will feel if this is the most repeated stuff in the whole game. The gunplay seems average at best.

Seriously?
Someone posts a gameplay video and says it looks nice and suddenly he/she is an astroturfer Pr person for the studio?
You must have serious issues... That comment was unnecessary.
Why are you even posting in a thread for a game you are not interested in?

The game looks alright but it’s still generic to me. I like Sony exclusives but I’m tired of this setting so probably going to pass.

I know a guy, reviewer who is currently playing the game. Obviously he cant say anything but all he could say was that the game is way on the positive side. Once the reviews start hitting the streets, BEND gave them clear instructions what specifically not to reveal to players even though they are important story elements and mechanics. My guess is, something big changes mid point and they dont want to ruin the surprise.

Remember Quake 4 reveal...and then they showed how mid game you will be turned into a Strogg? Like wtf, I wanted to find that out for myself.

this is a classic situation where later we remember why the hate in gaming forums mean nothing.

I like the genre, RDR2 was a disappointment so this should fill that itch.

The controls were awful and convoluted.
The guy also moved like he was 80 years old.
Well, it's a Rockstar game. But yes, while I don't completely agree I can see how the game can feel sluggish compared to other open-world games.

Looking good Daryl.

I supposed its because of the difficulty setting used in the video, but I didnt liked enemies dying way more easily than you. The main character felt way too spongy.

It’s bad enough when they’re damage indicator numbers. But XP indicator numbers are even more useless.

I’m so sick of seeing them in games. They aren’t helpful and they immediately break immersion. Devs need to either get rid of them or give you the option to turn them off.

Let’s not forget how polite the zombies are to wait their turn before trying to bite you.

The concerned trolls will be eating their crow religiously like they did with Gow (when comments were made about being in boat too long and change of gameplay) and Horizon Zero Dawn :)

I look forward to what looks like a good AAA budget zombie game with great combat and lush environments and not some bullshit, underfunded, repetitive wannabe zombie game.

What I like about Sony first parties or most of them is that they don't fund a game just to fund it and fill in a slot but they put thought into it and try to make sure quality is there at release.

Looks very good, actually. True AAA. I am concerned about the variety, though. Everything looks samey: forest and city remnants. Yes, we are in a realistic setting in the Wild Oregon and so on, but still, I hope they add up some more stuff we have not seen in the previews.

The EDGE article on the disappointing AI and generic gameplay has me a little worried. I was really looking forward to this, and I hope the promise of the horde AI wasn’t false advertising.

I've seen more positive previews than negative ones. We shall see but I'm not worried.

Looks a little better each time. Mini-hit 4-7m units if mc is in the upper 70s-mid 80s. The randomness is what is really cool to me, driving over a hill and wham a 100 zombies. The type of game the playstation library was missing, Imo. The only thing that would have been better to me, is the variety of locations. Looks solid to me.

Edge gave AC Odyssey 70 and most people are out there saying it’s the best since AC2 or Blackflag.
I hear pre-orders for this are healthy and I’ll be there on day 1, Sony wouldn’t ok another zombie game unless it had a USP.
I really think the core gameplay looks quite fun and has a lot of possibility.... hopefully it has some emergent, physics based stuff like BOTW. That could be incredible with the horde mixed in.

I cancelled my CE preorder.
Will see reviews first then decide. Nothing looks new to me just a TLOU clone.
Only the hype has been created to make it a success.

Like 'everyone', lol. If the reviews holdup it will probably be my generic game to replace my missing generic Gears of War itch, it was what was missing from the PS library to me. It's pretty clear what this is and isn't....if it's not your cup of tea nothing wrong with that.

45mn of gameplay on PS4 Pro (Maybe it contains some spoilers). Personally, I didn't watch the whole video.

Thanks OP, I think it looks really good. I love sandbox games and aren't tired of zombies at all. Yeah some of the voice cues sound like they'd get old but that isn't something I'd skip a game for. The graphics look outstanding, the fire effects very nice. The mood at night looks suitably spooky. A few scenes in the video where the character is clearly going to get overwhelmed is something that made me think "I want to try that"

I hope so, and yes the emergent gameplay is exactly what I want to see.

Honestly, looks like a game perfect for gamepass. Wouldn't buy this at RRP from this video. But personally burnt out on the third person adventure titles from Sony I guess.

The only thing really noticeable to me is how terrible the guns sound, that rifle dam.

What did odyssey did better then origin in the improvement bit?

I get why origin is a big jump for the assass franchise.
But i dont get why odyssey even exists besides well a new setting i guess?

I want it to be my cup of Coffee Coolatta..but I just don't see it, lots of ish missing and feels very generic, typical copy paste from other Sony exclusives, been there done that type of thing.

If reviews high, just maybe I'll click gameplay video to watch.
