    Around 8-10 hours if you mainline the story, and around 20 if you take your time, explore, do side missions etc.

    Wasn't going to be buying any new games, but got to support Remedy (especially after I was actually asked for my opinion on it).

    So far, so good. Very interesting.

    Not quite sure what to think about M. Suosalo (the janitor)... whether that's weirder for us Finns, or the rest of you people. There have been years when he's been in literally every film, tv show and play made here, including stuff like children's Tv.

    Got it for free thanks to an nvidia promotion which I'm chuffed with. Wanted to buy it but the bank account has been brutalised the past few months and I didnt get into quantum break so this is a bonus.

    I was quite tempted but the framrate problems are putting me off a bit. It already looks pretty spongy in the gameplay videos.

    Yeah the frame rate in the easy allies review was really bad, I wouldn't be able to put up with it.

    Oh maaaaannnn, that frame rate in the video was terrible. I would imagine it's a physics thing absolutely soaking the cpu when it all kicks off ala Just Cause 3.

    Wonder how Richard is going to phrase it in the upcoming DF video. ďWeíve been looking at performance on the standard consoles and itís, well, not good.Ē

    @Fake_Blood And in this case, the PC version may well add a whole extra layer to the issue. I expect a lot of angry BTL comments on the issue of technical ambition vs poor optimisation.

    Sadly, today is turning into a total clusterfudge at work, so not sure I'll be back home at any kind of sensible time to try this out tonight.

    I can already hear the staccato talking style.

    Grabbed this. Remedy are ace and Max Payne meets X-Files / Fringe just sounds cool.

    "Now, we've also had an exclusive look at an upcoming Switch version. Performance is of course lower, but... it's pretty playable, if you ask me".

    Really though, how long for the video?

    You might be able to download it from your favourite illicit website if you want to demo the game on PC.

    New Nvidia drivers just popped up for this, game looked great but hopefully this gets a bit of performance back.

    Shipped from simply. Looking forward to getting my mitts on this.

    It's actually a fairly low budget game, to be fair. Think one of the devs said somewhere between Ä20-30M.

    I won't pretend to know what kind of resources HDR requires, but I think they probably had to be fairly smart with their budget.

    Not sure what Iím thinking of this really, still in hour one so really early but itís not endearing me so far. Iím sure Iíll get into it eventually but itís their least accessible game from a starting point, image quality on x looks a little soft but thatís not the end of the world.

    Gunplay is a tad bland to begin with but clearly itís all about the powers and Iíve not got any just yet. Just done the first clearing or whatever.
    I shall crack on.

    You know what, I've always believed that ChiefGB is the most positive gamer on this forum.

    Holy crap. When I think "fairly low budget", I imagine something like Hellblade and its less than 10 millions.

    How can you not have a power chief, the first one you get inside 20 mins.

    I meant to type "relatively" rather than "fairly". The heat must be getting to me. I'd imagine Quantum Break cost a decent chunk more than that to make.

    This is also a bigger game than Hellblade in many ways, but they've kind of done a similar thing here - make a complete game with production values approaching AAA levels at a faction of the price.

    Well I did say I was IN hour one, plus I do like to soak it all in.

    Also Iím just offering an alternative opinion, it IS very early but itís not quite flowing like I had expected.
    Yes Iím a pessimist but least things can only ever get better from there 😬.

    Iím stopping to smell all the lore flowers and all, plus thereís been a crazy monsoon outside that Iíve had to stop, run around my house battening down the hatches inside and out, plus on here pissing everyone else off as usual ☺️
  • Deleted user 27 August 2019 18:12:42
    At least if I don't get on with this I can sell it on. Just wasted £32 on a digital game I'm too shit to play (remnant) :/

    Itís still really early and no doubt it will get much more fun to play, just the main character isnít very likeable so far, still not got a power btw, but I am exploring not mainlining through stuff, collectible hunting.

    So you have been walking around reading all of the collectables and wondering why it isnt flowing. Never change chief :D
