        I haven't beaten Rain World yet the new update got rid of my progress but when I first played it I didn't see what all the praise was about. After giving it another try recently I like it a lot, but I still like OW more.
        I hope they find a way to restore the save files to all the people who lost them, I was really enjoying it.

          Once I reached shaded citadel it blew my expectations away and after that every new area was more crazy than the previous one culminating in one of the best experiences I've had in gaming at the top of the map; pure kino

            Shaded citadel was cool, but it was so dark I just ran past everything until I got to shoreline and looks to moon.. I accidentally ate one of her flies so I had no where to go after that, and I ended up going all the way down to the Depths. It was such a pain in the ass to get out, I ended up at the beginning of the wall before the patch came and deleted my save. I don't want to have to go the fucking sky islands and chimney canopy again after just beating it.

              You fucked up so hard, the intended path brings you from garbage wastes to shoreline to see her, it's very clear you're not supposed to eat what you ate, and if you don't the shitty orange guy vaguely leads you to the area you're supposed to enter shaded citadel from; from there it's easy to find a light source and to continue on the intended path
              You dumbasses need to stop trying to indulge your fetishes for a second so you don't hurt every female you meet in vidya because it gets you hard, moon clearly panics when you pick one up

                Moon tries to speak to you, but you don't understand, so you pick up a fly but she panics and you let it go, then you fuck off to hibernate and the dumbass yellow guy points you to a new objective
                And if you're not a retard you understand at that moment he was never bringing you to your family, but to moon, and now wants you to help her by bringing her more flies

                For me, I (thought I) dropped the fly and was trying to throw up a pearl to give to her since I heard she gave lore. I ended up dropping a rock or something else, so when I held shift I ate the fly instead. The fly made me glow so I figured I was meant to go to filtration system/depths, since it was so dark and so close to her. If the game didn't give passages upon getting an achievement I don't think I would have had the motivation to walk all the way out.

    Motion Sickness: the game
    Arrogant devs think third person mod for consoles not required even though the community mod exists for PC, meaning it’s something the players want
    Look to successful games like GTA5 FO4 you can effortlessly shift from first to third person but devs must “know better” while making their players suffer

    It's one of the very few games who has the balls of not giving you a saccharine happy ending.
    The first time I realised this is important was when Dragon Age: Origins released, and the developers admitted the ending where the main character survives without sacrificing someone else was tacked on at the last moment, since they got cold feet.
    The second one was more recent, with Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, where one of the developers also admitted the Ascension Ending was tacked on so that every path can have a "golden" ending, something the inside testers bitched about, even when said Ascension Ending is completely redundant with endings already available on some paths.

      Giant’s deep was scarier than Dark Bramble to me. I shit bricks when trying to explore outside my ship and then suddenly I turn around and there’s a tornado looming over me, about to rip my ship away, leaving me stranded in that dark ocean. Or worse, sucking me into space where I float helplessly until I run out of oxygen.

        Funny thing was that I found the Orbital Probe Cannon to be scarier, it was orbiting fast enough and just high enough above the planet, which was just big enough to trigger a sense of acrophobia as I had to do the space walk into the broken piece.

      I liked this game a lot, not going to get all basedboy melodramatic and say it changed my life though. I'd give it a solid 8/10 in a vacuum but it deserves an extra point for a really original concept so 9/10.

      I kind of agree with
      There were a few times where I had figured out exactly what I needed to do but had a hard time executing it because of the controls, which was annoying. I also didn't really care for the dlc, I didn't like that it takes place all in one location so your spaceship becomes irrelevant. I really liked flying around the solar system in the base game and being able to go off to a different planet for a while if I was stumped on a puzzle.

          Disagree, it presents another side to the themes the base game focuses on but it doesn't clash, it complements. The original point of accepting your own mortality amid the vastness of the universe is hammered home by the ways in which the inhabitants of the Stranger destroyed themselves because they couldn't do just that.

          You think that little campfire you had with the other people was reality? It's as far as the developers could say "this is the afterlife" without ruffling religious and atheistic feathers.

            No it was a construct of the hatchling mind trying to comprehend the unknowable reality that was the eye of the universe. And you don't die there, you die when the universe explodes in a new big bang, as you see your helmet crack and then you burn into nothingness. You are dead. Dead as can be. That's the point of the Prisoner's sequence during the finale.

              Yeah, and the people you met along the way just happen to be teleported there, but not a single person from your home planet.

                No, it's literally in your head. It's a construct of the mind with recreations of the people you met along the way, who are actually dead. That's the point of blowing out the candles on all those portraits of the Hearthians, Nomai, and Owlks.

                Damn you missed the point pretty hard huh? Don’t the specters around the campfire even straight up tell you they aren’t real

                I always figured Solanum suddenly being able to speak directly to the player was a big "this isn't real" indicator, but I guess not everyone gets it.

    Great game, I gifted it to a friend so he could experience it and he has played for like 10 minutes, I think the tutorial filtered him.

    Everyone calls their favorite game a masterpiece, that doesn't mean anything. I don't think Outer Worlds is a perfect game, some stuff comes off as downright amateurish. But what's more important is that it's one of the few games I've played and come away thinking "Dang, I wish I could make a game like that." It's a genuinely novel art concept that could only be experienced as a video game, and its execution is good enough to keep you engaged with it.

      true, the parts you remember about it are fantastic and the shitty parts are forgettable. i for example, thought the dialogue in just about every message and conversation was dogshit and didn't really care about any of the stupid characters, but the story being told through them and the journey you make to gather all the pieces of information were both interesting and outshined everything i didn't like.

    Bros I want to love this game and I love what I've played but I genuinely find it kinda hard at points with the platforming and time limit.

      Story focused exploration/puzzle game set in a fictional star system?

        I mean how would you explain it to someone older who likes sci-fi and likes to read books but doesn’t really play video games anymore?

          Read a wiki or watch a playthrough.

      i heard it was "a game where there are orbiting planets and you explore them" and i bought it just from that.
      forget the whole time loop mystery, how many games let you actually orbit a moon?

    I would have liked to see one more piece of DLC dedicated to the Interloper.
    It's the one piece of the puzzle that never sat right with me. It felt like its arrival was timed with the Eye's activation just as much as the Strangers and the Nomai. And with similar effects.
    My headcanon is a Starship Trooper style telepathic hivemind that hurled ghost matter from their system at the eye.

      I can understand the feeling, but honestly it just seems like bad luck. Shit happens sometimes, the universe is cruel, indifferent, and as likely as you are to find the eye, you're just as likely to get exterminated by a solar system wide exotic matter explosion.

        That's the thing, though.
        Finding the eye should be easy. The real reason it wasn't was because there were outside forces out to prevent anyone from finding it.
        The eye called everyone. If anything, its more surprising that others didn't show up to the party.

          Honestly it feels like there's a concept in that, for some kind of action/strategy game completely antithetical to outer wilds but with the same basic premise of the universe dying and the signal of eye being received by multiple possibly hostile civilizations all fighting to be the first ones to find and enter it.

      I thought the Interloper happened generations after the Eye signal caused Nomai crashed in the system and had to rebuild their society.

        Exactly. The Nomai teleported there.
        Anyone else who got the signal would have taken multiple generations to get there.

        only two or three generations
        the nomai poke was born in the system and was still apprenticed to the original engineer of the vessel

    How long is the DLC compared to the base game? It took me about 40 hrs to fully explore the outer wilds.

      I felt done at ~15hrs. It's a good addendum, with some great moments.

      Yeah around 15ish hours. Absolutely worth it.
