I think itís bc of the dearth in new games, but Iím looking very forward to this one tomorrow. Hope I can play this weekend or Friday since I work remote 😜. But, hope it delivers in spades. Been awhile since I played a new good one. And, this was highly rated for PS5.

It's really fun as long as you're okay with some repetition (unavoidable with a timeloop game!) and feeling underpowered at the outset. But it doesn't take long for those tides to turn.

Nah, I don’t mind repetitive if there’s a purpose. I mean most games have some backtracking so this is similar. I just like the aesthetic and I mean I loved Timecrimes and this reminds me of it. Similar plot device I suppose. But FPS, I’m all in. I’m gonna let it boot up in morning just to make sure I got it. It dl’d 37 GB so I should be fine, but I like to physically see.

I’m just not sure about this timing scenario where you eventually have to take all 8 targets out before day resets. I don’t like timed events in games, but hopefully this is minor issue if you learn how to play game. I mean Hitman, I really took my time. Sometimes to the point of frustration, but I’m sure not as intricate with the takeouts. I hope, that is.

There are defined times of day, but itís treated more like a level rather than a running clock. Like, ďmorningĒ is a level, not a span of 3 hours.

That sounds fine. Surprised review copies weren’t made available or why there’d be an embargo.

There isn't an embargo. It was reviewed. When it came out. A year ago. It is literally the same game, with some added features. Read the reviews from a year ago, and pretend when it says PS4/PS5, it says Xbox.

So, I bought the deluxe pack, but it doesnít ask if I want to install. Every time I bought an add-on, it would let me install from anywhere. This doesnít say at all. Anyone know how I can install? Thanks in advance.

Correct. You totally didn't need to get it though.

Oh, I know, but any little bit helps for me, so the added guns are worth it. I still don’t understand how I can install.

I would definitely watch a video on playing this game rather than just trying to play the game. It's more complicated gaming mechanics than I am used to. It's not super-hard, but it would be so much harder to play without a lot of early instructions.
It's much, much more forgiving than Returnal.

And, I loved Dishonored and almost finished Prey. I think this is gonna be good.

From one of the links I found, kinda makes it seem complicated, but the video of gameplay not as much.

I went ahead and bought this. I played first few minutes and was enthralled. A little confused, but enthralled. I wanted to own this. I wonít be disappointed.

To be clear, you purchased, with money, this game that you just got for free with Game Pass? Are you planning on cancelling Game Pass soon?

Iíll confess to having done that a few times: the Ori sequel, Halo: Infinite, Outer Worlds, Crackdown 3 (admittedly for very cheap), Gears 5 (ditto), Forza Horizon 4, and probably some others Iím forgetting. And Iím about to do it again with Shredderís Revenge. Itís the collector in me. A curse!

I like to own them. Never know future and now it’s secure. I already bought the deluxe pack, so I own the game when it’s free for now, so what? Like AT, I’ve done it before. Halo for all, really.

This game is so I much fucking fun. I mean I really just started, but did some kills, some assassinations. Hacked some stuff. Reminds me a little of BioShock and many more in a great way. The design, the voice acting are stellar and can see the story being as well. Can’t wait to play more. It’s one of those addictive games for me. Doesn’t happen often, so I’m thankful.

What exactly is a Roguelite game?

Re: Deathloop - from Bethesda Studios - 9/14/21 (PC, PS5 Console-Exclusive)

Roguelikes are games with procedurally generated worlds (so no two playthroughs are ever the same), and if you die, you have to start all over. Not just like going back to a checkpoint but as if you never played the game at all. Slay the Spire and The Binding of Isaac are two famous examples. (And Rogue is the best known example, obviously. )

Roguelites are similar, but thereís usually some element of progression that carries over from run to run. Examples are Returnal, Hades, and Cult of the Lamb.

Deathloop doesnít fall into either category, although Iím sure people have likened it to a Roguelite. Itís actually a pretty linear game, despite the timeloop conceit. (And Iím not saying that as a criticism. Itís very cleverly done.)

I just saw it in a review that mentioned it was part roguelite, parts everything else that makes a game good. I was curious. Thanks AT. I think I have Returnal but haven’t played, I think I got it it a two pack with, Observer, I think, the one with Rutger Hauer. Does that sound right? Same production company?

For anyone who doesnít keep a close eye on Game Pass perks, thereís are some free Deathloop cosmetics right now (the ďDressed to KillĒ bundle). You can get this with either the Game Pass app in your Xbox or via the mobile Game Pass app.

Returnal is a PS5 exclusive. If you don't have a PS5, you don't have that game.
