          i haven't played the game but i feel like it kinda just got dropped by the publisher since they didn't want to spend more money on it. stranger of paradise was good, I don't know if this'll be as good but I imagine similar scores.

          anal orgasm is literally mindblowingly amazing. you don't need to have gay sex, but do try fingering yourself while jacking off. your toes will curl from the massive spasms running through your entire goddamn body. very nice. don't knock it. thanks

    If they would ever just find or create some original Black character and develop an organic story/quest adventure around a developed character/developed world, they might have something.
    but if they continue to just clone random classic games and paste generic token diversity hires over the standard MC, it is going to be shit.

    if only there was something interesting and not basket ball or rap[per gangster lifestyle they could draw a black persons interesting adventure story from, and build on it

      To be fair everyone expected it to be a part of the story so they're gonna get a massive case of cognitive dissonance because of that. Same with some anons here saying it's decent because they expected it to focus on her Blackness. Personally I'm interested in its Dragon's Dogma inspired combat design but I'm waiting for other anons' opinions (filtering out the obvious bait of course because you're gonna get that for this type of game).

          Eat shit anon. The trailers clearly made it look like it was inspired by Dragon's Dogma gameplay. That's the vibe I got. I made it clear I haven't had the chance touch it yet. I'll be playing it after the reception cools off.

            You mean the trailers where she ZOOMS across open empty fields at high speed, saying quips from marvel movies while she 'parkours' and jumps from the high buildings?? How does that relate to a game where you lead companions across a tightly knit world with dungeons, use different classes, climb monsters and find secrets? Are you autistic?

            By all means please buy the game, you sound like you don't deserve to have more money than brains.

              Oh please, the only dungeons they showed in the reveal trailer of Dragon's Dogma was the intro level's dungeon since they didn't have any until the expansion. The Catacombs itself was barely if not even used at all in promo material. Hell, Frey's use of magic clearly reminds one of when Capcom would reveal Class Skills, ESPECIALLY Maelstrom. You don't know what you're talking about.

            Same. Any game that makes me wonder if they lifted shit directly from Dragon's Dogma has me at least curious.
            Haven't played much but I get the feeling it's going to be another FF15 in the sense that it's very frustrating because it's plain to see how with a few minor adjustments it could have been good.

              That's the other end of the spectrum that I got from it as well. It could clearly be a nicely inspired Dragon's Dogma game, or a FFXV type of scenario where it just doesn't satisfy. I take it as Square Enix having a problem with not really understanding what made those types of games good. They tried to get that same success from MGSV with Left Alive, but that fell flat as well.

      Based. Exactly how I'd rate it. Reviewer's have straight up turned into spineless jellies. It used to be more of an issue that reviewer's were appeasing the devs. Now they're clearly trying to gauge how their viewers are going to feel about a product before they even play it and adjust their review accordingly.

      7 is average, and on steam its howering at 40%. 7/10 for a square title is already kind of a fail, but this is also a mediocre, unpolished, poorly designed title that leaves you wondering who its from. The woke crowd will have a breakdown seeing the character be portrayed as a literal criminal hood rat who dindu nuffiin, most people aren't into the constant quipping and if you push forth to actually play the game you get just a wack ARPG with shitty writing and terrible open world.

        to be fair most of the negative reviews on steam talk about shitty optimization or bugs

    from browsing some random streams it doesn't look that bad visually.

    except the expressions maybe. just seems a bit off. you can tell they really tried to make them realistic but something is just slightly off.

    so opinion from someone who actually played it

    optimization is shit, there are no huge drops or stutters per se its just that it should run way better than it does, it runs good on my 7900xt though so I can't complain but that shouldn't be the baseline
    looks pretty great overall, way better than people make it out to be but the face mocap is a huge miss they would've been better off just making the models normally
    dialogues are cringe as fuck because it feels like they wanted to emphasise the "She is a girl from a different world so she keeps using expressions people don't understand" and they overplayed it
    some moments are annoying as shit like when she talks with the bracelet after a cutscene and the game could just let you walk away and listen to the dialogue but for some reason makes you just stand there so you either listen to it or skip the dialogue and move
    movement and combat are okayish don't have much unlocked and there is a lot to unlock, it felt ok in the demo though so thats that
    progression seems pretty good too, you basically take "mini-quests" to upgrade your spells (basically deal X damage with spell in 60 seconds for example) giving it boosts like more damage or more attack speed etc.
    map is fucking riddled with markers and it will feel like a fucking chore to collect it all if I want to later on

    Overall a lot of the issues are shit that can be solved with patches
    bought the key for 40eur, it feels worth it for me overall but if you are not sure I'd say wait a bit til it drops more or gets cracked

    It's pretty mediocre. Performance issues. Can dip to 720p resolution on Playstation at times and even hit as low as 20fps. Terrible dialogue that tries to be like Marvel but if you just replace some words with fuck instead. High PC spec demands even though the game doesn't even look like it needs that much power for the graphics it is showing. Also, the protagonist is very unlikable.

    It takes far too long to get going and is slow in general. It's cutscene hell for hours. Your starting earth magic is boring and feels unimpactful. Even if you rush to get fire magic, which feels a million times better, and don't go for any sidequests, it's 5 hours of basically falling asleep. Difficulty is just throwing health sponges at you.
    The writing is middling, the dialogue is often cringy. It's quippy capeshit dialogue but with more swearwords. The characters, especially the MC, aren't really likeable.

    It's one of these games that does everything okay, but pretty much nothing really good. The movement is probably the best thing this game offers. Has potential, but doesn't really go anywhere.

    My running theory is that it was a dev hell project Square Enix forced to release because they need money. A lot of the environments look like they were hastily assembled by pulling stuff from asset libraries. Contrast with other bombs like Andromeda, 76, and Cyberpunk. These were all panned for bugs and unmet expectations, but at least the world design still felt like it was crafted out of genuine passion. Forspoken has a distinctive "no one gives a shit, just get it out the door" vibe.

        this is 1440p. and he tried other settings later.
        he could get 60fps on higher settings. with RT on he got like 40fps.

        keep in mind recordings can easily look worse than the actual game.
        here's another one with a 6800 and a weaker CPU. he played on 1080p maximum as far as i can tell

        footage looks like shit and it's a stuttery mess, but it could just be the recording.
