    Does it allow you to construct any kind of penis shaped effigies.

    Yeah it's the stupidity of it all that is kind of making me want to play it.

    Few people on reddit that have it are surprised that all you do is walk. I mean what the fuck where you expecting, the warnings have been pretty clear.

    I've not really read much or watched many videos since the first reveal but it has always looked like a deliveroo employee lost in the highlands without a bicycle.

    Does look pretty though.

    Pretty sure that's how it works.
    Ugh. I find social media tiresome IRL - don't need it leaking into my games as well. Think I'll probably be turning off the online aspect then.

    You can skip the cutscenes. Although it's mildly painful when you're in your Private Room (essentially save room) and you have to watch short unskippable animations to take a shower, fiddle with inventory, drink a Monster, bash one out etc.

    I've heard several people say that side of it (not the likes per se, but the shared world aspect generally) is absolutely the best thing about the game, so maybe give it a good go.

    Should be able to fire it up hopefully later tonight to see what all the hoo ha is about if it arrives today. Trouble is, is that it's going to have to be pretty special to lure me away from Witcher 3 which I'm balls deep in just now and don't really want to stop playing.

    Nah, fuck that. By the time you've finished the 50-100 hours of the Witcher, the rabbit will be out of the hat for this game and you won't want to play it.

    Yeah that's a nice touch, I'll grab Days Gone when it dips under 20 quid.

    Ha. I definitely won't stop Witcher, it's really got it's claws in to me. Didn't stop me buying this though. I possibly thought I was going to magic up another 10 hours in my day.

    If you're anything like me you'll hit a point with Witcher 3 where all will to play the game suddenly ejaculates from your body.

    See I think I had that when I took a break. It may happen again mind you. I'm just awful with long games. Just. Awful.

    Yeah same. I've tried 3 or 4 times to get back into but I just can't. And up to that point I was loving it. May try to start it from the beginning again at some point.

    I had the same experience but I just tried to play it one Sunday and I just got back into it like a comfortable pair of slippers and just kept on playing. For me I think it was because I kept dipping in and out and lost where I was and what I was doing. It's definitely a game you can burn out on especially if you're the kind of person who will try and investigate every question mark as opposed to coming upon world events naturally.

    Played about 4-5 hours of this last night and can't wait to get back to it.

    It's slow paced, not a lot has really happend, the systems seem all kinds of convoluted, and the dialog and story is trademark Kojima acronym heavy nonsence.

    But... it is intriguing, beguiling and beautiful.

    So far definitely not a game I would recommend to everyone, but definitely one I would love to have recommended to me.

    The whole thing reminds me a lot of the bits in MGSV between being dropped off by pequod and schlepping it accross the map to the actual mission start points.

    Are you saying that the reviews are all negative and then just awarding high scores?
