I always knew I was going to love this game, but what I didn't expect were the scores to be so...nice. I mean, 7.5/10 from IGN? I really expected a 5/10 from them, to be honest. Can't wait to pick up Until Dawn at midnight tonight. Today is just flying by!
Save me time? I want reimbursement for the 10 minutes I wasted reading this "article."
Considering that it's called 'The Quantic Dream Collection,' I'm assuming (and praying) that it includes Fahrenheit as well as Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls.
Indeed. I do think the whole "hundreds of endings" statement was rather far-fetched by a landslide, but the replay value is extensive. I imagine that for me, Until Dawn will be another Heavy Rain; complete in a day or two, but spend months, if not years continuously replaying it to make different choices and obtain different endings. Considering that Until Dawn's choice system is more expansive than Heavy Rain's, not to mention that Until Dawn's theme is...
Very true. I'm looking forward to it; at least the selection won't be slim pickings.
April 26, 2016. Sounds plausible, especially since it's a Tuesday.
Approximately nine hours, according to a developer interview.
A.) I'm using a vacation day so I get paid for it. B through Z.) Why does it matter what other people choose to do?
We do need a new Splinter Cell, but in my opinion, it needs to be a modern take on the classic games. Conviction and Blacklist were solid experiences, but didn't feel like Splinter Cell to me at all.
Hmm, that's a really out-of-the-ordinary preorder bonus, but pretty nifty for a collector.
Until Dawn's gameplay is comparable to Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Head over to YouTube and watch a gameplay video or two.
Indeed, that's exactly how it is for me currently. It's purely cosmetic gear for character customization.
I think they both look spectacular. Couldn't care less about which looks "better." I love both franchises and will be getting both games either way.
Definitely going to call BS on this, because the PS3 version was NOT that blurry at all.
I've played The Evil Within already (almost a year ago, actually) LOL definitely creepy. The Evil Within is one of the reasons why I postponed playing Alien: Isolation for so long. I wasn't ready, haha. Even though Alien: Isolation came out first, I didn't hear about it until a week or so after I finished The Evil Within. Good to know the letterboxing can be removed now. I haven't taken up a second playthrough because they annoyed me so much. Thanks for the heads up!
To be honest, when I saw the trailer, I thought it was a joke. Hey, if some people are enjoying it, good for them. I don't need to read a review or play the game to know I'll absolutely hate it and find it a waste of my money.
Alien: Isolation is certainly a gem, definitely underrated by a lot of people. I don't play horror games often, but this game really knocked my socks off. I think the length was great; it was a long game, but the pacing was so brilliant, it made sense. It did feel like it was dragged out a little bit, but hey, I was happy that it didn't end as early as I thought it would. I really didn't think it would take as long as 15 or so hours to finish. I thought maybe 7 or 8. 380d ago 2 agree0 disagreeView comment
That's the first time I've heard someone complain (well, not necessarily complain, but you know) about a game being too long, LOL. I can see why you felt it was too long, but I think that the pacing was done well enough that the length made sense. Sure, they could have shaved off some parts, but I'm glad they didn't. Definitely got my money's worth out of this game. Regarding the Alien's AI, this is a topic I talked with people about on the forums and ...
It's funny you mentioned that because I've only seen the first two films and I honestly found the game to be a seriously faithful nod to the movies. The game really did it justice and that's very rare. I'm not too sure about the average score, but for example, IGN gave a really poor score (one I completely disagree with) and is completely ironic because Ryan McCaffrey, who wrote the review, was actually quoted as saying he loved Alien: Isolation. Why his revie...
