    I'm thinking I can plough through quite a lot of it in remote play on the Vita.

    Mine hasn't turned up from shopto. I've had issues in the past though. Not to worry I'll grab from somewhere else and get a refund from them after 10 days or whatever the timeframe is.

    I'm upto about 8 hours of fellwandering now. It's getting better Ė minor minor spoilers Ė more stuff to do including stealth and clonking/tying up bad guys. I'm also about to get a m0t0rb!k3!!11!1. So that'll be fun I hope.

    I've better got the hang of moving with a heavy load now too. I just pegged it down a huge hill with far too much stuff and managed to not fall over, so that felt like a result. I think it might be a lot harder to fall over than it initally seems. Your character animation is like 90 degrees lopsided half of the time, but you just hold L2/R2 till he rights himself. Keep doing that, plus jamming R2+L2, to not fall over.

    It's a slow game. But I quite like that too. Not particularly stressful. I've a feeling that will change...

    Hah. I knew I'd get to carry a corpse over a mountain. May as well sell it now. I'm done.

    What I will say though is I very much like it so far. Wasn't expecting to be able to play it yet but came back home to discover the wife and son were out so I fired it up. Probably managed a good couple of hours I think. As has been said, it looks and runs lovely on a base Plebstation 4 and all the game mechanics seem to be quite natural feeling so far.

    Early signs are good, very good. We'll see what the next few hours brings.

    I was a bit like that with No man's sky. A lot of wandering around barren landscapes constantly juggling the inventory. This could be a game for me.

    I agree with Jim sometimes. He loves The Surge 2, so do I for example. That's agreement right there. And I just watched some of that video. I KNOW it's all silly. I KNOW I should prepare to hate it but... Every bad thing he said erm, appealed to me. I can't explain it. I still think I'm going to really like it. Even though I KNOW I shouldn't. At all.

    Don't have that game but even if I did, if I traded order 1886 with you, that would be like me stealing from you, and I didn't even have to use a gun or a knife.

    And I like you too much to do that.

    So, and this is probably a stupid question, but can someone just nutshell this game for my simple brain?

    It's basically a quadfather simulator. Fall. Get up. Fall. Get up. Drink. Fall.

    So after all the bollocks, is it actually any good?
    I mean, are we talking Metal gear 5 good, of amazing gameplay(at times) but terrible writing and storytelling but with a bit of an imagination..?

    And just to add to that, can you really fall? I mean are we talking next gen where it's not just a simple cliff death but maybe where you run down a hill too fast with a heavy backpack, start rolling and smack your head on a rock, ala total recall?

    I fucking hate NMS, mainly because it's a buggy mess and the inventory system was god-awful. I do get the comparison though, but thankfully DS is much better optimised.

    Too early to tell. Writing and story telling is much better than MGS5. Gameplay... jury is out currently, for me. Don't think I've hit the meat yet.

    I don't think the gameplay could ever be described as amazing. I've swung between bored enough to turn it off, to sort of enjoying myself for brief spells.

    The story is utter nonsense and the storytelling is pretty terrible as well, either being 1hr+ cutscenes or dull talking holograms.

    Yet I have gone back, but I dont really know why.
