"Best features" is not setting a high bar. And, they are far from "wild" or "hilarious."

I normally don't do this, but is there some kool-aid drink going around that I missed that made people suddenly think an okay game was really good? I love mediocre games, but I'm not going to sit here and proclaim them above their standing. At least not with the pretty rampant talk about this game as if it's a well-designed AAA game (it's just not).

Eidolon515d ago (Edited 515d ago )

Rampant talk, where? I'm having fun with it. Not laugh out loud funny or anything, and definitely no Rick&Morty level of intelligence in the comedy, but it's interesting and humorous and fun, have not seen any bugs that I could point out anymore than on the best AAA games... It's a game with some "colorful" comedy, concepts, and design. I would not call it mediocre. Maybe it's niche.. Pentiment isn't my type of game, but I wouldn't play it and rate it low because I don't get it.

i mean alot of ppl like it.
sure its not the best made game, but its hilarious. and it looks rly good imo.

and if the trailer didnt tell you what kind of game its going to be, well i mean, theres alot of gameplay on youtube.

we all knew what kind of game its going to be. and if that bothers you, stop playing games all together

lonewolf10515d ago

That is all relative to the person playing the game whether or not it's mediocre, after all it is just an opinion piece.

headshotfrosty515d ago (Edited 515d ago )

Good game, not great. Lots of potential for an even better sequel which I'm sure we'll get considering the success of this game just from a PR and interest level. Hope we get updates and dlc that play a bit better. I really like the game though, not love. 7.5/10 IMO but could be a 9 with improvements. Def not a 5 game.

shinoff2183515d ago

5 is middle of the road. Good game. A 7.5 is to high. The scoring system is so broke

shinoff2183515d ago

I've said it from the jump. It's being hyped up because it's all Xbox is getting currently. That last obsidian game same thing. Getting 9s and 10s. Wtf

Orchard514d ago (Edited 514d ago )

Pentiment is currently sitting at 86 on meta, so are the reviewers in on it too?

Reviewers typically don’t en-masse hand out participation trophies and you don’t land on 80+ by accident.

Also, this game is being hyped up on Steam too, which has… all the games.

HyperMoused514d ago

Im having a blast with it, i thinks its great its a fresh theme, looks great is interesting and hilarious, ive laughed out loud a lot of times with this game....its also a complete game with no MT's or pre announced DLC, rare nowadays. id say its AAA or close.

Orchard514d ago

I’d give it a 7.5 to 8/10.

I’m having fun with it and find the comedy hilarious. But I also wouldn’t say it’s the best game ever - compare it to Elden Ring and you can see it’s not in the same class.

But it’s a fun experience none the less. Hopefully this game has set them in good stead for a sequel.

High On Life PS5 and Xbox Series limited print physical editions announced

Squanch Games will open pre-orders for physical standard and Collector’s editions of High On Life for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series on February 27 via Limited Run Games and IGN Store, the developer announced. Pre-orders will close on March 31.

ravens5284d ago

I guess it's better than no physical at all. I was using LR when they first started. I have Oddworld New and Tasty, Octodad, Shadow Complex etc. I fell off at some point and just felt I couldn't continue so I stopped. I just would much rather be able to purchase these games off Amazon.

LoveSpuds84d ago

I used to give into fomo a lot in the early days but I am much more choosy these days. I did play this on Gamepass back in the day and had a good time with it, so I have pre-ordered a copy as I'd like to Plat this on my PS5.

jznrpg83d ago

These aren’t super limited prints so whoever preorders will get one.

BrainSyphoned84d ago

Does it come with the layer of dust this game deserves or do you have to work at it?

High On Life's DLC Hilariously Mocks God Of War Ragnarok's Puzzle Spoilers

The recently released High on Life DLC, High on Knife, takes a jab at God of War Ragnarok's puzzle-spoiling mechanic that irked many players.

ravens52222d ago

Lol. I always got em before he said anything anyway lol

Seth_hun222d ago

How? Because boy spoiling the puzzle before you even see it :D

MrNinosan222d ago

Same, wasn't there a setting for how quickly Atreus would spoil shit 😏

JEECE221d ago

Yeah I heard a lot about this before I played, and then it almost never affected me when I played the game (the few times it did were with bird form Freya).

Honestly it makes me wonder if a bunch of people are just really terrible at puzzles and took forever to do them and got hints. It's either that or they patched the game to slow down the hints (I played about 5 months after launch).

H9222d ago

Couldn't get more accurate tho

GoodGuy09222d ago

I like GOW puzzles but honestly I felt there was way too much in Ragnarok.

LoveSpuds222d ago

Perhaps another dev will include content in their game mocking devs who devalue their work by giving their games away on streaming services and then expecting to be able to charge full price for it a year later?

PhillyDonJawn222d ago

That doesn't devalue their work. They get paid regardless. How you wanna spend to play is up to the consumer

LoveSpuds222d ago (Edited 222d ago )

Getting paid my MS still devalued their work squire. Rightly or wrongly, when they announced the PS5 version of the game, I didn't give two hoots. It was an old game by the time it came, all the buzz had gone and I knew it was free elsewhere; there was no chance I was paying full price for that
now old game, it wasn't worth it in my view.

Even in articles that have absolutely nothing to do with GamePass, someone will inevitably bring it up.
