    I really like the machines and the way this world is made but I can't get to grips with the "tribe" feeling. The outfits, the camps, the characters (so far seen) are all very mediocore or worse. Photomode is a huge + but it needs to come done in price a lot before I'll even consider a purchase.

    Similar to @doblocruiser, I'm not a fan of the aesthetic design and story around it.

    It looks like good fun though so it will probably be a pick-up used in a few months.

    0:34 was pretty cool, apparently there's 26 different robot creatures and going off what has been shown their abilities and fighting styles seem quite distinct.

    As explained elsewhere, I don't really feel the whole dinosaur thing about the game (probably just me) but don't deny that the game does look very stunning and that they have done a lot of work on it. I wouldn't want to pay less than the full price though, if I did get it at some point, precisely because of the amount of work it must have taken.

    EDIT: It'll be strange to not hear Tiny Tina's voice when Aloy speaks though :lol:

    Yeah hopefully there's a good explanation for the robot dinosaurs and the way everything is.

    I never thought I'd pre-order again but after seeing the 88 on metacritic, the 9.5 from Jim Sterling and 5/5 from GiantBomb I had to. I have a feeling it will get absolutely destroyed on the user reviews though, I've seen some pretty toxic stuff surrounding the main character and diversity in the game on various forums.

    If people have any questions I'll be happy to answer if I can stay out of photomode for long enough. :)

    Those are just the white genocide nutcases feeling all safe now that they have a supreme-idiot-in-chief to back them up (applies to both US and UK.)

    Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

    The game looks interesting enough, but I'm still not complete sold on the main character. I've never really been able to get into games where a female is the main character, developers either make them super women with zero flaws so they don't get flak or they make them a stereotypical sex object with armor that barely covers them (or sometime they just do both). I rarely, if ever, see a balance unless it's a game where you choose the sex of your character and nothing is really altered expect maybe a potential love interest or something.

    I think my biggest concern about the game though is that it will get super repetitive, everything I've read suggests it's about hunting robot dinosaurs, which seems cool but I don't know if I want to do that for 40 hours of gameplay. Also the screens look fantastic and it looks like the world they developed is awesome, but I'm guessing if I try to go explore, robot dinosaurs will attack me. That could get annoying.

    I'll watch some YouTube vids on it though and go from there since I really would like to use my PS4 for something other than a yearly release of a baseball game.
     
  17. Based on the information I've gathered these past year and a half, I'm not expecting it to be lame and unrelatable. Well, certain people may be lost as collateral. This main character in this game looks like she will be brilliant.

    I'm moving that to the — you guessed it — photo mode thread. :D

    on a side note: my first guerilla game ever.

    Played it this morning and I love it. The foliage, machines and characters are stunning and the combat just clicked with me immediately.

    It'll definitely be a purchase at some point down the line for me when the reductions kick in. :tup:

    PS4 will need some love, all I play right now is Rocket League! :lol:

    I've been looking forward to this since it was first shown in 2015, and it's been well worth the wait so far. :D

    @doblocruiser I struggle with these type of Open World games If I am honest, It does look beautiful and no doubt I will give in for the photomode..I'm still stuck on Tomb Raider & Shadow of Mordor :lol: I do think I prefer racing games...:tup:

    Also eagerly awaiting for this game which will be delivered by my best friend the postman tomorrow!
    Great job by Guerilla Games and that they are Dutch doesn't matter. Now we can export something else then tulips, wooden shoes and plants ;)
