We Happy Few

Unread postby CosmicScientist » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:52 pm #432480

It's out now on steam. I guess it didn't die.

All I can discern from the trailers is that it's not so much an exploring dystopia but a cutscene dystopia. That and they made the mistake of revealing there is at least one generic fetch quest so I assume there's more where that came from.

It's 15% off for me but jesus christ, that only puts it at £39 for me, down from £45. Is the pound doing terribly or is it expensive across the channel and the pond too? The negative reviews are saying something about early access owners get it at 50% off because apparently paying for early access isn't paying for final access.

Oh and there is a season pass worth the price of a popular indie game. It promises three DLCs of no determined length or content because digital consumerism is the real joy pill.

There are apparently numerous bugs with the AI getting stuck in doors and similar, requiring reloads.

It's still a loot and craft game but I don't know what became of the survival elements. It does have RPG elements - skills/perks and points to unlock them! So, take that as you wish.

It does have more positive reviews than negative though it looks roughly equal and the top two English reviews are negative whilst the next bundle underneath are positive. I assume it's just a story based game that'll be the Kessel run kills Han Solo spoiled within the next two days.
Go appreciate Nienhaus.

I've got it, though I can't really give it a fair assessment since I have performance issues.

It's not a bad game from what I've played, the survival mechanics do serve a purpose of making you have to risk breaking conformity at least. It's pretty overpiced to be honest but if it was something like £25, then that would be a more fair estimate.

A friend said it's more bioshock linear progression than a walkabout.

Do you kill John Lennon at height of Beatles fame as a final boss for ushering in the dystopian era of free love & happiness?

on the arrival shuttle, I saw the iconic toolbox on the ground. I clubbed myself in the head with it trying to figure out the controls.
Setting the tool box, now bloodied, back on the table; I went to heal myself with a medkit. I clubbed myself in the head with that too.
I've come a long ways from asking how to switch hands.

Tele-man somehow dies and gets its looted by an atmos tech who managed to use it to send two nuke ops to lavaland, who were then surrounded by several very angry people from earlier and some extra golems on top of it.
Captain dies, gets cloned/revived, lasers the guy holding the disk into crit to take it back.

Two permabans and a dayban, i'm expecting a snarky appeal from one of them soon. What the fuck.
