O.k, my second video is up, shows a bit more of the game than the first, including more loads,some crafting and the first major new area. Not too spoilery outside of that.

I'd say if you like the game after the second video, stop watching, and buy the game and see the rest for yourself.
Cool video. 1 thing I noticed was that you were extracting all the cores. In the Joe Staten gameplay thing he mentioned that it's a balance between extracting and destroying for parts

On PC, yes.

Ugh so annoying. Having a high PC its annoying to pay MORE for the PC version that I could get the X1 version (either best buy GCU or amazon prime give me 20% off), and the X1 physical copy lets me trade or sell if I dont like it.

I have $60 credit with Steam too from refunding NMS after playing it 10
minutes lol

What is the framerate you are seeing on Xbox 1? Is it 60 fps?

Normally I would always play the game on PC, but its cheaper on X1 physical media and I can trade/sell if I dont like it. (20% off GCU or amazon prime)

Hah, that reminds me of the scribblenauts hat that I got all those years ago.

I'd like a recorgi outfit for the preorder bonus personally.
Someone sell me their corgi.

Aw, damnit! I preordered at Amazon. Might run over there on Tuesday. I hope I can just get it.

This one is pretty cool. Shield break then Mack and Core extract.

Hmmm, that's probably why I'm short on parts, thanks for the heads up. Going to be putting up a third video tonight, but like I said, if you like what you seen already, just play it. Game is really just fun to play, last game that kind of came out of nowhere and impressed me like this was probably the original Darksiders.

Gut feeling is this won't review well overall, from late review copies to the lack of marketing I don't have a good feeling about it.

I would love to be wrong, I like the concept of , it , the characters and the art style, since my initial enthusiasm about it with the games first reveal, what I have seen since then has disappointed me.

I think it will do OK, seems like a fun game with a bit of jank that some reviewers will tolerate given the lower price point.

I think it'll be 78-79 with the off chance of being 84. Anyway 78-78 is solid but of course the hyperbole will make it seem like it's the worse thing ever and not worth anybody's time

I just have a big checklist of what I want to see in the reviews and what will put me off, that's about it, aggregate numbers probably won't have a big effect on me unless the Metascore goes into the unforgivable hellish red-zone

I actually think that most of the gripes will be on the technical side, frame rate jitters pop in loading times and not so much the gameplay

Hey if there is any technical hiccups at least it can be fixed

Bad story and bad gameplay, not so much, hoping those are spot on

From what I've seen the gameplay is fun and the story is engaging. That's all I need. The graphics aren't AAA but they are good enough (AA). I hope it sells well because so far, it looks like a game I like to play. It's not realistic and that is totally ok with me. My biggest complaint is the healthbar UI for me. It's the only thing that really I'm like "meh" but it's fine, I won't care after a while (I actually don't care now but still). I do love the BLOOM! lololol

I didn't know this was written by Joeseph Staten before. Now i'm a lot more interested than before. And honestly fuck reviews. That whole industry is broken.

I'm about 5 hours in.

Looking at a 7.5 so far.

Game has a lot to like about it. Brings back some old school platforming style that's been missing. Some heavy Ratchet & clank elements, minus the cool guns.

Big problems, though: super janky, many low quality textures, framerate issues, incredibly long loading times (like, 30 second screens, at times).

Mixed feelings, but there's definitely some things to like.

This is probably my last video until the game launches, I show fof how different you can customize your corebots, fast traveling and some of the larger map, and the coolest thing I've seen so far the Challenge Dungeons. Actual decent platforming!

The platforming looks annoying to me, its not optional right? I'm talking about the ones where the platforms are tiny and if you miss you die I guess and teleport back to start.

The RPG elements OTOH look far more extensive than I expected seeing the robot change so much in both stats and appearance.

So the game releases on 13th in US but 16 in Europe. When I switch the region to US the date it's available also switches. As a European, will I be able to play on the 13th if I simply change region setting to US?

I think you have to buy the game from the US store for that to work.

Its looks wich store you bought the game not the locale you have at that moment.
So if you buy it from the US store you can play on the 13th. Do you buy it from the EU store you can play on the 16th. No matter where you are. :)

I decided to pre-order this instead of picking up RE4 HD, so yeah, I'm hoping that I like it (I've really liked what I've seen from the previews though)!

Reviews in about 13 hours right?

What kind of scores are people expecting? My guess is 81 but honestly I have no idea, could be as low as 60 or as high as 90.

It's hard to say. Like who's to say how a reviewer is going to respond to long load times. Ik gonna say mid to high 70's
