Only gripe for now is that ever since I found a gun I liked and fully modded/tweaked it as high as it could go for now, everything is a bit too easy.
yah, it gets easy pretty quick. wish I had played on harder difficulty

When I upgraded the weapon, its DPS went from like 340 to over 1200.

Now I step on Mantis Queens like the cockroaches they are.

i didn't use a single consumable item, except for the basic one that restores health.

Other than the very beginning, I don't think I have either. No need for any stat boosts when I'm already this strong against the enemies.

Finished the story last night. Ended up being a lot shorter than I expected. I did every quest I ran across and got all the companions. I'm going to look around a guides to see if I missed anything major.

Why does the solar system map have named locations that you can never go to? I was real surprised when I got the "point of no return" message at the end; I thought I still had a ton of game left to get through.

I'm guessing those areas will be part of DLC expansions.

I only did the "good " quests. I didn't try to turn Phineas in so I missed out on all those quests. I also didn't do any of the Sublight missions. I might go back and do those later, but I didn't want to work for Sublight or The Board. Did you do all of those quests? I know you can work for The Board quite a bit before you have to decide whether to turn Phineas in or not.

I did all the Sublight quests. Some good dialogue with her. Also didn't turn in Phineas; helped/stood up for him whenever I had the choice. Definitely wasn't friendly with The Board; don't remember what I did but Byzantium was all hostile for me after I killed someone.

I wondered if the game's original plan was for it to be bigger, but when Microsoft acquired Obsidian mid-development it was decided to scale it back since the game was then slated for GamePass. It sure felt that it should have been longer.

Could be. Outside the length, my only real complaint was loading times. Too often and far too long even with a SSD in my PS4 Pro.

I wish they had made it more apparent where/when long side quest lines started. Older TES games at least had dedicated mage/fighters guilds in each city so you knew where to go. I wouldn't be surprised if I missed at least one I was able to do.

I guess the DLC is out today. I assume some of those extra planets will open up.

Bunch of reviews are up mostly saying it's good but just more Outer Worlds nothing exceptional. That's good enough for me although releasing 11 months after the game came out means I will have completely forgotten how to play the game.

I had forgotten all about this. I guess I'll reinstall and try out the new DLC.

I wrapped up the DLC last night. One new planet and then has you return to a few old planets for a couple quests. Probably around 6 or so hours to do everything. It was decent but nothing super impressive. I expected more since it is releasing almost a year after the game did.

So not worth $15?
(or $12.50 if you get the add-on bundle)

It was worth it to me because I wanted more of The Outer Worlds but just don't expect anything more than that.

I guess itís cause of dlc. See, GP does get dlc. Looks pretty great actually. Very BioShock: Infinite vibe, but of course more RPG. I did like the few minutes I played, just donít have attention span right now for the time that game would take me right now.

I just happened to be looking through the games on my shelf today and remembered that the final DLC for this came out last month so I played a couple hours and so far it's grabbing me more than the first DLC. You're solving a murder mystery and you get a detective vision style weapon which helps you find clues.
