    My ShopTo order shipped yesterday evening but it's not turned up today. Normally from them I get stuff a day early. Wonder if they've been told to delay posting it, a bit like back when GTA 5 was released? Might tie in with the ban on reviews as well.

    The store page should have the approximate unlock time on it.

    Fuck preordering though, it's the developers first game.

    It's the studio's first title, yeah, but they have plenty of industry vets and 2K Czech have been collaborating.

    Doesn't bother me. Looks good to me. If it's shite I'll just move onto something else.

    Surprised on not seeing Kichi here. She always seems to be down on major releases these days.

    Also, surprised no-one here has got lucky and got a copy yet!

    Given the rather impressive goodie packs the big YTers and Twitch streamers have been receiving for this game I'm taking anything they say about the game with a rather large pinch of salt

    Soooo apparently despite not sending out any review codes, 2K has seen fit to send YouTube "influencers" copies of the game along with the soundtrack on vinyl AND a record player to play the soundtrack on.

    So just be vary wary of any praise coming from YouTubers for the time being.

    I was hyped by the videos of this I saw, but then when I looked closer I started to get a Godfather vibe - that series that EA briefly made age ago - which was tedious formulaic shit. I desperately want to be wrong, because the original Mafia is one of my faves, but the videos so far show the usual open world tropes and not too much else. :/

    It's not just quality of the game for me, it's potential technical issues.

    The PC port if Deus Ex initially seemed OK, but when you got to Prague it become a shitshow of microstutter and crashing for me and by then it was past the 2 hour playtime refund window.

    live stream here/ no commentary - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUeMMlyj0LQ

    Been watching a few streams, and while I would never judge a game's overall quality based on videos; as an open world sandbox game it looks reaallly generic, and graphically not that great.

    Can't wait to see a Youtuber brand the game as the 'BEST GAME EVER'.

    Went straight from weatching a video of this to watching a watchdogs 2 video and the watchdogs world seems so much nicer than this. I would say there are some nice reactions from npc's to being shot and the likes though.

    "Oh, thank you kindly, what a pleasant experience. May I ask about the make and model of that gun, and *please*, *where* did you buy that hat?"

    Like that?

    Looks very gta 4.

    The last two Mafia games were fantastic worlds. The gameplay was a bit ropey, but I was engrossed in the story. I wouldn't put it on a best of list, but it was certainly memorable because of the setting. I'll probably pick up Mafia 3, when it's down in price. I'm a bit bored of the open world genre at the moment.

    I thought that the death throes were pretty good when I saw the video at EGX. Although the feedback to being shot and not yet killed appeared lacking at that stage.

    @UncleLou Like that but with a Walton Goggins southern accent, even the ladies.
