I've done it several times. It opens up a larger area, giving you over an hour of extra playtime. There's new monsters to fight, gear to unlock, and you can even upgrade Eve's health and attack abilities.

However, be sure to not solve a puzzle that summons a monorail. There is a sliding door that should open once you do, but for some people the door randomly does not open. This happened to me and the reason it's a problem is that it forces you to ride the monorail. Riding said monorail triggers an incomplete cut scene that crashes the demo. But summoning the monorail also auto saves the game. Meaning you are stuck there. Instead, do everything you can with the exception of said puzzle, and once you're done, fight the boss on the car park roof to trigger the final save you will carry over to the full game.

I went through the glitch again and almost have Eve exactly as I had her before. However, much to my irritation, I can't seem to find the one omnibolt I need to upgrade her gear slot. I did it last time, but can't seem to figure it out now. I've been combing all areas of the map, even finding shortcuts I missed the first time. But that omnibolt still eludes me.

That all sounds great, but how exactly are you getting the glitch to work? How do you get the positioning right?

For the answer, look here.

Just keep in mind that it may take several tries to get it to work. Heck, one time I got the monster to blink into the locked area instead of me.

I know how to do it, just can’t.

As I said, it may take several tries. It's not exactly easy to pull off, but it is doable. Just try to back the monster as far against the wall as you can, keeping the beam nearest the gate to your right.

This embargo will be lifted two days ahead of the game’s official launch on April 26, 20241. Fans can eagerly anticipate hearing what critics have to say about protagonist Eve’s mission to save humanity and reclaim Earth in this stellar gaming experience! 🌟🎮

I hope this gets some good marks tomorrow. I’m pulling for this game. I really loved the demo, even though I couldn’t do the damn glitch.

Yeah, I'm hoping for high 80s, at least.

As for the glitch, here's another way to do it (although I hear this way is harder to accomplish).



I wanna know how anyone managed this.

That first vid makes it look super easy. Don’t know if I’ll have a chance to exploit it before release, but I think I’ll still try for the heck of it and get more perks. Thanks Roc.

Solid 82 with about 100 critics responses so far. Reviews are mostly glowing with good story and great action, especially with boss fights.

Cool . Glad to hear it turned out well. Still not interested in the game for myself, but who knows, maybe at a Black Friday sale if it gets cheap enough.

If you're interested in playing this game, steer clear of YouTube. People are already posting spoiler videos. I just stumbled on one whose screenshot and title are a major spoiler (that confirmed a story beat I admittedly suspected). What's worse is that the thumbnail was designed in such a way to fool you into thinking it's an official PlayStation video.

So, if your demo stats carry over to full game, once it’s ported over, do we still need demo in library or can delete?

As far as I understand, the PS5 (much like the PS4) keeps game saves separate from the games themselves. Just beat Abaddon in the demo and let the sizzle reel play until your taken back to the main menu. Then you can delete the demo. When you boot up the full game, it asks you if you want to carry over your demo save. The game then takes you to the camp before the Abaddon fight, so you can fight him again and keep playing with all your demo grind intact.

Re: Stellar Blade —> 4/26/24 —> PS5

Having lots of fun with this game. It's a shame the story is told so awkwardly
Spoiler:
(are the characters genuinely clueless that they're all robots, and was I not meant to be aware of that already?)


and the main cast's motivation for working together seems rather slapped together, but the actual gameplay (both the combat and the exploration) makes for an enjoyable experience. Heck, I hate collect-a-thons but I also find pleasure in finding all the cans scattered throughout the game (of course, Eve's over-the-top way of showing she found a can is large part of what makes it fun).

That being said, a lot of the NPC conversations are awkward as hell. There's little logic to how conversations progress, reminding me of this scene.



Then again, since
Spoiler:
they are all unknowingly robots awkwardly playing at being human,


I suppose it makes sense.

Dunno. Either another free DLC drop, or they are to announce the first paid expansion.

I saw some folk joking that it's related to that upcoming PlayStation games showcase that seems to never have a date.

I wonder how well this game sold. Too bad they don't do sales charts any more.

Circana (formerly NPD) is still a thing. Mat Piscatella posts them every month on social media. Digital reporting is hit or miss, but it’s the best resource freely available.

Seems it's not only sold like gangbusters in Japan, it's still going strong.



Also, I forgot the Japanese dub is exclusive to the Japanese release. Odd, since you'd assume the Korean release would be the one featuring an exclusive dub.
