    Surprised there isn't a topic already. Anyway here it is....

    I was vaguely aware of the title, but didn't really have any clue what it was. Managed to play the demo at Rezzed and its very much on my radar now. Looks gorgeous - demo area was very Mediterranean - blue skies and simple white buildings. Seemed to be a puzzle game with strong Zelda and Ico vibes to me.

    Yup looks great, the only decision is what platform to buy! Out in Summer on Switch or end of May for other platforms. Hmmmmm.

    This is out tomorrow.

    It got a 9 in next month's Edge. Not bad.

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge approves.

    Edge have been hyping this game for years so I'll be waiting for reviews. It does look interesting. I don't see how an embargo works for a game like this where they're desperate for publicity and people have no real expectations.

    Oooh, looks like they've taken Ico/Colossus/Guardian and sprinkled in a little Witness/Okami/Wind Waker.

    I/will/definitely be buying!

    Seems to be reviewing pretty well.
    Switch or PS4 version though 🤔

    Polygon, PC Gamer and Gamespot weren't too impressed (65-ish). I hope Rock, Paper, Shotgun review it, John Walker preferably.

    I've been looking forward to this ever since the epic ps4 reveal trailer. Now it's here I'm thinking I'll wait until sub 20. Still looks great though.

    Looks like it's on track for a meta of 75. Based on the art style, the general consensus, a very reasonable price and a sub-10 hour playtime, this sounds like a piece of me.

    So is this out tomorrow on Switch too, or is that later?

    I've been really looking forward to this, glad to hear it's reviewing well.

    The run animation looks janky.

    I'll be honest, this isn't really doing anything for me. It just looks...dull.

    @cowell Cheers.

    That's a bit of a bummer. I still haven't finished The Last Guardian, properly started Persona, and I've just bought Injustice 2, so my home-based gaming is overstuffed. Would've got it on Switch though.

    Yeah I'd have got it on Switch if it was out. Don't want to wait though so I've bought it on PS4. Perhaps I'm wrong but I doubt many Switch owners don't also have another platform which can run Rime, so I can't imagine them getting many sales on the Switch. Hopefully they don't use backwards logic to conclude it's therefore not worth bringing future games to Switch.

    @Stranded87 I'm a switch only person. I've a laptop i use for "serious stuff" that could just about play the original Doom and that's it. I couldn't justify the space a desktop took, nor the cost of a gaming laptop or a console "just for me".

    I'm happy to wait though. I'm enjoying actually playing games rather than building up a backlog of things I buy on impulse.

    Any PC players care to comment on the performance? There are a large number of reports on Steam of it running very slowly on even beefy PCs, but a couple that say "calm down, just disable SSAA and it's all good" so I'm tempted to wait for a patch. It's just so purdy though!

    Anyone playing this? I did the first section (up until just beyond freeing the fox). Was nice and relaxing. Far too early to say whether the game is any good or not yet, but it looks promising. Once I'm done with Prey it will have more of my attention.
