That was quick! I'm only about 10 hours in myself. Loving it. But, man there's a lot of dialogue in this game... And while most of it is amazing, it gets tiresome quick for me when it's just some damned NPC with no connection to the main story.Eluvei said:I finished Planescape and enjoyed the hell out of it. Not uninstalling anytime soon!
Yeah, I hear ya. If you're sick of them about 10 hours in, get ready to murder some motherfuckers because they won't stop talking. But I didn't finish most of the sidequests, mainly because I had to rely way too much on tattoos to get good dialogue options; I messed up my charisma and intelligence at the character creation and it was pretty irreversible. That kinda destroyed my game a little, so I just rushed when I was about halfway through.Walter said:That was quick! I'm only about 10 hours in myself. Loving it.

Yeah, I'm surprised how much I like it to be honest. I bought it Saturday and I've already played it about 15 hours.Aphasia said:So....You like the game, right?
Late reply.Eluvei said:You all should download the Amnesia demo that just came out: http://store.steampowered.com/app/57300/
It's EXTREME! I'm preordering it!
Looks like I'll be buying two games tonight. : D I'd almost forgotten about Amnesia. Really nut-clenching stuff. It looks as though it's replacing a lot of the "BOO ZOMBIE AHHRRGHRARARAR HEADSHOT BLOOD" kind of scary with a physiological freakiness. I haven't even seen any enemies in any of the trailers. I also heard you can go crazy, which is badass.Ramen4ever said:Late reply.
I'm actually surprised there's no dedicated thread for this game. I'm not really big on the horror genre and I don't play games very often. But this definitely stood out for me. It looks very atmospheric. I have no doubt that at times it'll really get your heart beating.
Same developers as the Penumbra series.Aphasia said:Looks like I'll be buying two games tonight. : D I'd almost forgotten about Amnesia. Really nut-clenching stuff.

The whole mystery element is what scares me. The unknown. Signs scared me more than any movie I've watched to date, just because it fucked with my imagination constantly.
What would you rate the game out of 10?Walter said:I played the demo of Amnesia, and wasn't too impressed with the actual game part of it. Props to the developers, who are composed of a very small team, for bringing thsi game out and it getting some good reception. But... The atmosphere is cool enough, but what it requires you to actually DO in the game isn't very involving or even fun. I can't imagine myself playing it for more than 20 minutes or so.
About the guy going insane, functionally what happens is your guy will cower in a corner for a while, fighting the controls and mouse view. To fix it you have to get somewhere well lit, or stop looking at scary shit like flesh pouring inexplicably out of a hole in the wall.
The much-heralded "Water monster" level was almost comical to me. It moves slowly, is easy to dodge, and is dumb as bricks. It wasn't so much scary as it was annoying that I had tojump across floating things in the water to get around it.
Hah, whoops! That's what I get for trying to use big words.Ramen4ever said:p.s. ( I think you mean Psychological, physiological freakiness = mutants and strange looking creatures, no? But yes, this game has a strong psychological element. Like you have to be conscious about light sources, as your player gets more insane and paranoid the longer he's in the dark.)
Haha. Bro, I can get down with your comment about not being blown away by Red Dead. In fact, I played it for maybe 8-10 hours and decided to sell it. But Reach? Really? That game blew you away? I picked up Borderlands out of sheer boredom and so far I've put more time into that than Reach. Matter of taste I guess. Halo's old and needs to go away and die. Something tells me, on an FPS note, that Black Ops is going to be another over hyped let down as well.Oburi said:Wow nobody is talking about Reach? Well, it's amazing. Simply amazing.
There's a door, I just left it open in this screenshot so you could see inside a little. Ive actually built a much more impressive base elsewhere in the world, now that I have more resources at my disposal than before.Aphasia said:Pretty sweet castle Walter! Isn't the front just open though? Is there a door? It looks like monsters can just walk in your house! : O Scary! Maybe you need a moat.
