High on Life Gameplay Max Settings 4K - RTX 4090 - Beautiful looking game regardless

Rob Cram writes: High On Life released recently with an abundance of mixed reviews for this off-the-cuff first person shooter from the mind of Justin Roiland (of Rick and Morty fame) studio Squanch Games, Inc. Aside from the much discussed and somewhat divisive talking/humour in this game, one thing that is clear and can’t really be argued against, is how beautiful it all looks. The shooting mechanics work very well too. Reminding us of a cross between, Oddworld Strangers Wrath and BulletStorm.

Its a shame this game was fleshed out a bit more - it looks like fun

headshotfrosty525d ago

Its very fun. Don't let the reviews fool you on this one. Gets better and better as you play. 8/10

Fleshed out how?

Good Graphics -Check
Funny AF-Check
Solid fun gameplay-Check
good voice acting-Check
Crazy amount of world building-check

For a AA game, it is top shelf stuff.

ummm..... why not play it for yourself?

it IS fun.

bangoskank525d ago

How do you know it isn't "fleshed out" if you haven't played it. The game is a lot of fun. Not for everyone though.

It looks incredible on an OLED in 4K. The humor for this is just right. This game is definitely something special.

Curious on what you got? I got a 55" LG C2 back in October. It's great.

jjb1981524d ago

I have the the LG 48GQ900. It's always compared to the C2 from the videos I've seen. The color depth is incredible. It has Gsync and HDR. It's a 48" panel and took a little getting used to from my ultrawide but I had to put the 4090 to the test. I'm getting the max 138Hz that I set on every game except CyberPunk.

I beat it and ready for another play through

It was almost unbearable to watch the player walk away from "Fresh Meat" without shooting him.


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

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.

LoveSpuds95d 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.

jznrpg95d ago

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

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.

ravens52233d ago

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

Seth_hun233d ago

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

MrNinosan233d ago

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

JEECE233d 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).

H9233d ago

Couldn't get more accurate tho

GoodGuy09233d ago

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

LoveSpuds233d 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?

PhillyDonJawn233d ago

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

LoveSpuds233d ago (Edited 233d 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.
