You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I picked this up not knowing much more about it than, "This looks like fun".
I WAS RIGHT.
It's too bad this didn't get the attention it deserves. Combat is crazy good, the soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard and the way music changes depending on where you are and what's happening is pretty brilliant. There's tons to do and pretty much every quest adds something to the background of the world in some way. Without giving too much detail, this game made me sympathize with the enemies in a way no other game I can think of has and led me to put some thought into sentience and how it might develop. The only complaint I would have is that the main story leaves some questions but even that is a bonus. I didn't realize it at the start but this game tells (at least) 3 different stories, each unlocked after the completion of the previous character's story and will contribute to the whole. I'm on the second story and it opens up a completely new set of quests and way to play the game. Can't wait to see where it goes.
Wait Are we going to do a what are we playing in April thread?
PC port released on Steam recently and considering it originally came out in 2009 it's a relatively old game but oh man. I'd heard it's good but nothing that really got my attention like, "Holy shit, get this game right now!" Well I'm here to tell you, Holy shit, get this game RIGHT NOW. I just finished my first play-through and aside from a few unclear QTE segments during boss fights this game is a blast. The default combat abilities are intrinsically fun on their own and there are a lot more to discover and unlock as the game goes on. It's fast, it's funny, it's only $20.
