this will be a free GP game in 1 year when comes out?

with buying 19 games from 8/2-9/3 with couple preorders included. 3 maybe. I’m sure I’ll have enough for 1 year

I wouldn’t have waited either if system releases were reversed.l and I had both, of course.

I told a friend just today that I’ll never finish them in my lifetime. Man that’s a depressing truth.

^ if the exclusively is indeed 12 months, then yes, it'll be on Game Pass then. That's what I had read, but I don't remember where.

Picked up my PS5 copy just now. They didn't have the steelbook though, so it's being shipped. Weird.

Having never given a shit about this game before, I am now intrigued by all of the stellar reviews. I just don't generally care for Bethesda's games.

But do you care for Arkane games, specifically?
Dishonored or Prey?
To me, these are the kind of games that are Bethesda in name only.

I haven't played either of those (no interest). Admittedly my dislike of Bethesda really boils strictly down to hating Fallout.

Yeah. Bethesda is just publisher on this one, the developer is Arkane Studios, miles away from the in-house dev teams of Fallout/Elder Scrolls.

This looked cool early on but admittedly fell off my radar until those reviews. Damn. Might have to give it another look.

They are corporate siblings, though.

Played through the first two missions. Enjoyed it for the most part, but have some reservations about the overall feel, including on-screen text being very small on the PS5 version, shallow FOV, and controls not feeling quite right. Music and voice acting is great. The game really does kind of drop you into each scenario and gives you the freedom to handle it however you want. And unlike the Dishonored games, you can't just save a dozen times to get a 'perfect' outcome. You have to roll with your mistakes here

I dig it, and I'm sure once I get a better handle of the controls, I'll be more comfortable with it.

My copy is bouncing around the country courtesy of FedEx. Maybe I might get it by Thursday...

I was only able to put in a few hours last night. Got to the point where I have the names of the 8 people. Fun so far but nothing amazing (yet).

Put a few more hours in. The idea of hunting down leads each day is cool; I've killed 2 visionaries but it really means nothing at this point other than getting some items since I'll have to be able to kill everyone in one cycle.

Honestly, still not seeing anything that would make this game a 10/10 or even 9/10 but I still have a long way to go.

I've put some time in and really like it so far, mostly. There are some built-in, not sure if they're side-quests or what, but things in a given day it seems you can do that I've found frustrating. One was to create some uplink, which I finally figured out how to do, and then it went up slowly and just stopped at 91%. I moved on. Also I'm not a fan of, "Do this. Oh look, it does not have power. Now go find a power source." Maybe just a personal pet peeve in games.

But by FAR my biggest complaint is, in the middle of a firefight, "Your gun is jammed. Press square." I'm not sure who thought this would be a nice addition to the game, but it's ridiculous. It happens way too often and only serves to frustrate. Beyond annoying.

All that said, I love the vibe of the game and its creativity (though it clearly borrows heavily from Dishonored, which I don't mind at all). Overall I'm enjoying it, but gotta kind of agree I'm not exactly blown out of the water just yet.

Hmm maybe I’ll hold off. I was going to go pick this up today.
I have approximately 100 hours left of the Mass Effect trilogy. Completing it four times on this generation is enough.
I plan on picking up Back 4 Blood and Vanguard. I’ve also barely touched Aliens. I hate having unplayed games sitting around considering how quick they drop in price.
Also have the OHMC coming up and all my spare time is devoted to that.

I was going to wait for a sale but it seems like online won't be very active a year from now since it's technically a single player game?
