We haven't posted a Zero Punctuation here in a while, but this one is right on the money.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

Finally got around to finishing this. Wound up with 2 people, made so many stupid decisions in hindsight... guess I can't be too harsh on people making stupid decisions in horror movies anymore. Great "game", loved it, although I would of preferred something a little less supernatural story wise. Definitely looking forward to whatever Supermassive does next.

I think I'm going to replay this soon just to see how quickly I can get each character killed. It seems like you should be able to wipe them all out pretty early?

Got this game on BF, for $18 or something like that.

I actually tried to start playing it last week, and then saw the big patch.

But yeah, it was a quick game. Really great break from Fallout 4.

I got 3 survivors!

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

I rented this yesterday, and played through the whole thing in one sitting. Took about 7.5 hours.

Not sure how I feel about it. The beginning was WAY too slow for me. Took forever for the action to kick in. Didn't really care for the quicktime events, they seemed inconsistent. Most times if I pushed the wrong button, the character would just stumble and get back up. Didn't feel like it really effected the game at all. Then there were a few times when a single miss click would end with someone dying.

I thought the direction it goes in the last 2 or 3 chapters was kind of lame. REALLY didn't like the mine sequences, and was annoyed that people kept going there.

That said, it was a very tense experience. Not sure I'd want to play through it again... I get the impression that the story doesn't really change all that much depending on who is alive and who isn't.

I would have finished with 4 people alive, but at the very last "DON'T MOVE!" sequence, the dog bumped my arm and got someone killed. Bummer.

Oh yeah, did I miss something in the very beginning about why they didn't turn any lights on in the cabin?

Hmm, ok, but then why ...

were they able to turn the lights on at the very end of the game?

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

Spoiler:
I think Josh had messed with the circuit breaker and somewhere along the line you turned it back on in the basement.

I could be mis-remembering that. In any case, in a horror game steeped in the supernatural, getting hung up on the availability of electrical service of a snowed-in cabin in the mountains during a blizzard seems like over-analysis.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

3 people survived my first playthrough (woulda been 5, but I made a bad call at the very end).

I'm glad I bought this one instead of renting it 'cause I want to play through it at least twice more: once where everyone lives and again where everyone's dead.

The main eight characters, definitely. There's a trophy for it ("They All Live").

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

There's one who has to "die" for story purposes (and the beginning event is unavoidable as well). Everyone else is fair game either way.
I need to replay it.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

I don't understand the point of playing it again to try to keep everyone alive. The only reason I enjoyed it the first time was I didn't know what was going to happen. With replays, the actual story and game doesn't really change at all depending on who lives (except you may have someone else following you around). The whole branching thing is mostly bullshit. Plus the first couple hours are pretty tedious. I certainly couldn't sit through that again. It is mainly just to see what the people that live say at the end during the credits? If I were interested in that, I'd just youtube it.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

I had fun replaying it for the different outcomes & to get the different trophies, but I think the game is a hell of a good time. It's easier on replays when you aren't roaming around lost looking for stuff.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

I just got around to playing this this weekend as I got it on sale a little while back. I really enjoy these type of games and this one was pretty entertaining. I had 5 people live. If I ever take another lap through this game, the goal will be to kill everyone off.

There were some things that disappointed me.

Spoiler:
1. The middle part before the psycho's identity is revealed felt cheap to me. Everything the psycho does is mostly pointless. Two of the cooler moments was when Chris had to kill either Josh or Ashley and kill himself or Ashley.

2. I'll echo that there was way too much walking and I didn't like that most of this story took place in these mines. I wasn't thrilled when I realized that the bad guys were Wendigos, honestly. I was hoping that this would be more of a Halloween or Scream type slasher.

3. The psychiatrist stuff was pretty great but was underused. Should have tied into the story better.

4. They make a big thing about character traits and relationships but it doesn't really pay off in any meaningful way. I think the only time it really matters is between Chris and Ashley.


Other than that, I enjoyed it. I'm up for a sequel but I hope they keep the horror theme and go for a different type of monster.

Borrowed this game from the company library and just started playing last night. Just through the first intro chapter and enjoying it so far.

Also, the controls are miserable in this.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

Finished! 3 people lived, and I'm kind of annoyed at some of the deaths and bummed at my choice at the end too (probably the same as Adam's).

Spoiler:
I finished with Sam, Chris, and Jessica. I assume I messed up in the end by blowing up the house when I could have also saved Mike and Emily. Hated the way Ashley died, since it made me think I was able to go find Jessica and opening a door was insta-death. Disappointed with the sequence for Matt too, where apparently I had to disagree with Emily earlier just to save him. Wish there were cases where it wasn't that simple to live/die for the characters. Also, Emily is the worst. Seemed like such a bitch.


Fun game, not really interested in going back just to save everyone more people though, largely because of the slow movement and having to sit through all the cut scenes and everything. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, even though i'm not a big fan of horror games these days. All the actors did a pretty good job, and it was fun seeing actors I know like the guy that plays Ward, Hayden, and the Mr. Robot guy. I think it actually added a bit to the game seeing real actors.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

Got a used copy of this game yesterday and played some tonight. So far it's really impressive, and the graphics are unbelievable. I am curious about something: my PS4 makes really loud spinning noises when this disc is in it. Doesn't inhibit game play but makes it hard to hear what the characters are saying. It doesn't do that with other games. Wondering if it's the game I got or if it's high graphic content makes the system work overtime. I recently installed a 1 TB hard drive so I know memory isn't an issue.

Yep. Should have shot her when I had the chance.

I did not have this issue at all.

I don't recall having any issues with PS4 noise with this either.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

One of my physical PS4 games caused my console's fan and/or HDD to work overtime. So it was either this, Bloodborne, or The Order: 1886.

It could have been this... but I don't remember for certain. I've been meaning to replay it though.

Re: Until Dawn (PS4 - 8/25/15)

I started this last night and absolutely love it. Everything from the setting and atmosphere to the character introductions are very well done. I'm only a chapter in so far, but I'm basing my decisions on how I would feel a movie version would play out. So hopefully throughout the game I can get these kids to do some dumb stuff and in result get some gratifying deaths scenes out of it.

Out of curiosity, does the beginning of the game start out the same for everyone?

Spoiler:
In my playthrough, both sisters died from hanging off the cliff and I chose the option to let go instead of her just dropping her sister. Didn't know if there was a way of saving one or both or if they both had to die to set up the story with the brother inviting everyone out for the weekend.
