Can't wait. I loved Until Dawn.

I’M cry like a man, when my characters die, only to have my girlfriend laugh at me and say “You take these video games too serious” and I yell back “Stop! You just don’t get it. You don’t understand the emotions I’m feeling right now” It gets ugly with these types of games, Heavy Rain, BEyond Two Souls, Until Dawn, Detroit: Become Human. It’ll be great lol.

Loved Until Dawn so much, and this looks intriguing!

I understand that. Not hating on you.

I do find the setting of this new game very intriguing.

Watch the extended gameplay demo this game looks WAY tougher than Until Dawn it’s obvious the dev team have a smaller budget this time around.

UD was a last gen game, adapted for this gen, and released early in this gen. UD was still a fantastic game.

It had nothing to do with visuals or performance. It was the story, and I know it was supposed to be a campy horror b-flick, but nothing about it was scary at all and it was really predictable. The emphasis on the butterfly effect was also a let down, because the only thing that changes is who is alive at the end to run out the front door.

It had suspenseful moments, but I would agree that it was never really scary. I don't think it was meant to be any kind of shock horror though. For campy B-Movie style, it was much better than any of those movies ever were, and I thought the story was pretty good. I did kind of guess what was going on about 1/2 of the way through though, but some of the details weren't clear. Overall, I really liked the story. The acting was really good, and despite it's campiness, it was really well done.

As far as the conclusion, I think that's a pitfall most of these kinds of games fall into. The so called, "binary conclusion". Although, there were more conclusions than that, and more outcomes in the climax should certain people be alive. But yeah, ultimately, it really ends the same way. Without any followup to the conclusion, to see the real outcomes, that's probably going to happen here too.

I can't speak to if this game looks better in the story department. I'm trying to avoid those kinds of things, because I want to go in fresh. I will play this game though, because I enjoyed UD so much. It's not usually my kind of game, but it ended up being one of my favorite games this gen.
