Looks better and better every time I see it and the frame rate looks a lot more stable. Hopefully there’s a “state of play” coming soon for a more in-depth look.

Day 1 purchase for me!

ID: gsp37w6

Waiting for ratchet and clank rift apart, im still undecided about returnal . I guess they need to show more .

ID: gsp6i1l

I honestly hear this a lot but I feel like they’ve been really open and have shown us a lot of gameplay already which is all everyone ever asks for. What more would you need to make your purchase ?

ID: gsqtu8o

I get that (though keep in mind this is a game that’s going to change every time you die, so once you get a sense for the core gameplay loop, everything else is going to be in a constant state of change). Personally, all of HouseMarque’s previous games have convinced me they know what they’re doing and can make an amazing game, and the biggest difference about this from their arcade games is really just the perspective/camera change and addition of a story. Other than that, I get some Nier Automata style vibes from it — it’s a bullet hell game, with roguelike elements. I’ll preorder it and cancel if the reviews aren’t good prior to it coming out, but thus far unless they absolutely drop the ball (which is possible, and has happened with other companies), I expect is one of my most anticipated games this year.

This looks great but I just wanna see like a 15 minute uncut gameplay video before I decide to buy it.

ID: gspflur

Agreed they’ve showed a lot of gameplay and info but I just want to see a run of the game at this point

5 : Anonymous2021/03/29 20:19 ID: gsq5cv6

This game looks amazing. People seem to be too scared off by the roguelike tag, but this seems to have a lot more depth and variety than other roguelikes, at least based on what they’ve said and shown so far. I’m most likely picking this up unless reviews are completely tepid.

6 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:06 ID: gsobbbt

Cant waittt. Glad they took their time and not pull cyberpunk bs . Already bought it . Fck the reviews, ill review it myself lol way too excited for this

ID: gsp2b0h

Lol why does everyone think every game is going to be a Cyberpunk now...?

ID: gsqtsw0

Classic case of getting burned. If one car salesman sells you a lemon, you will look a lot closer at every one from now on when buying a car. Same for someone who's been screwed by a contract.

ID: gsp3107

CDPR should be sued for ruining gaming as whole at this point. Cant express excitement for anything now without people reminding you of CP2077.

ID: gsocd6c

I'm glad the Devs have taken lessons from Cyberpunk, even if you haven't. Pre-ordering is a terrible idea.

ID: gsol3k5

But cyberpunk did get delayed multiple times?

ID: gsoon3h

Probably means pull a Cyberpunk and ship a game that is not only buggy but missing features from 3 generations ago

7 : Anonymous2021/03/29 16:24 ID: gspa9t4

Someone has to say it: I'll pick this up as soon as they add gyro aiming. Really been looking forward to the game as well, sad such a critical feature is missing.

ID: gsqdwmh

Every shooting game should have the option and it really pisses me off that it isn’t the case. I’m so used to gyro that any game that doesn’t have it feels completely broken. I hope more PS5 games have it, because it don’t want to play downgraded Switch versions anymore.

ID: gspdf73

They said no gyro aiming? That’s a let down

ID: gspl808

I asked on the Discord a while back and was told it wasn't a priority, that the game was nearing completion and they were working on polish. It's definitely a let down for those of us used to it but the fact that gyro aiming doesn't have mainstream support outside of the Switch it's not exactly unexpected. I wish that console players on other platforms picked up the mantle as strongly as Switch owners did, it has revolutionized how I play games on that console. Even the latest Monster Hunter has full deeply customizable gyro support and only the extreme minority of players actually use any type of ranged weapon.

Waiting for some real gemplay/reviews on how long the game is. It's AAA PS5 price now.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/30 00:48 ID: gsr168s

Honestly the gameplay alone already sold it for me. Story while we haven’t seen much seems interesting and I like the mystery

10 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:30 ID: gsod5hv

Res8 is definitely day 1 for me.. But this one, I am not sure. The gameplay looks amazing but I prefer to be careful

ID: gsojqfv

So far Housemarque has yet to make a game which is bad. I enjoyed all their other games from Resogun to Nex Machina

ID: gsp13r6

They’ve also yet to make a full fledged AAA game like this though.

ID: gsotw7q

But they’ve also never strayed far from their formula. I mean.. their next big game was going to be a BR game. I guess they realized that it wouldn’t have worked so now they went rogue-like. I just hate games with rogue like elements in them. I don’t want to push progress inch by inch and restart every time I die with some small perk. It sucks because the majority of games I see now that look interesting to me turn out to have rogue elements to them.

ID: gsojx3n

Yeah.. I still want to wait for reviews. But I am really excited about getting more REAL Ps5 games. I am starving, where is that new gen stuff??!!

ID: gsorkdn

Returnal, Re8 and Ratchet and Clank are day 1 for sure. All very different and look great

ID: gsorrii

I keep counting the days for res8.. I know it is ctoss gen but i still think they gave so much effort on this game and it will look amazing

11 : Anonymous2021/03/29 10:51 ID: gsoa9ne

It's looking really good to me. Just waiting for reviews now. If they are decent and I can find it around 60 euros or less I'll probably pull the trigger.

ID: gsoi37o

Its in preorder for 60 euro in italy since january lol, try to look in the online stores in your country

ID: gsoxxny

It's 63 in France. I am pretty sure it will go lower. I am willing to wait a bit.

ID: gsocmdj

Hey, look for it on amazon! I just ordered a physical copy for 60, where on psn is 80.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/29 17:59 ID: gspmu9y

This and Deathloop look good but I can't see them selling well at all, especially since PS5 games are fucking 80 euros now.

ID: gsq4qea

This one looks a lot better to me than Deathloop. I think Deathloop might outsell Returnal but only because of the ridiculous amount of advertising they’ve subjected everyone too.

I can see both games doing quite well though especially since the PS5 catalog is still in its infancy. People are dying for new games to play and these will do the trick even if they’re not massive releases.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/29 14:19 ID: gsou6b5

Looks like my type of thing. As usual will wait for day 1 reviews before purchasing.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/29 13:35 ID: gsop6px

If reviews are good it'll be day 1 for me, and I really hope it's good.

15 : Anonymous2021/03/29 14:14 ID: gsotl6x

I was so happy the abandoned the BR game.

Then they said rogue-like elements and all my excitement faded.

16 : Anonymous2021/03/29 16:07 ID: gsp80fc

This is one those games that could either be a 6/10 or a 9/10

Downvoted for what? I’m saying it’s hard to tell how good this game will end up

17 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:14 ID: gsobx83

I'll be waiting for a deep sale for this one.

ID: gsoecyw

Im with you

Game looks good but £70 is too much for me

ID: gsp61j8

This is the way.

ID: gsp1xx7

Same, I anyway preordered Nier Replicant so another $70 game that I won't get to for a bit isn't worth it right now. Looking forward to the Black Friday sale where I assume that these will at least go down $10 or more.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/29 15:14 ID: gsp185n

I just have trouble understanding why Kena is $40 and this is $70

ID: gsp2ch3

My guess, and hope, is that Returnal is packed with content. I'm assuming Kena to be a shorter game maybe 8 or 10 hours. Really excited for both games though!

ID: gsp6b6t

Kena is probably a pretty short game, like expect 8 hours I imagine.

ID: gsq06bb

basically kena will be a game alot of people will beat in a night or a weekend. Returnal my guess will have more depth and content .

Kena developers already said its short, and alot of peoples playtimes are was faster then whatever number a developer throws out.

ID: gsp7ty3

Have you played either game? And one likely cost significantly more to develop than the other.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/29 16:47 ID: gspdac5

Definitely interested in this title. Love me a good roguelike

20 : Anonymous2021/03/29 17:57 ID: gspmlgr

I really want this to be like a Metroid style progression. I feel like only then this style of game will be worth it. Starting with nothing, gaining critical items from the environment, fighting bosses, then progressing.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/30 00:52 ID: gsr1mri

I hope they release the VRR update before the game comes out. This would get rid of any frame drops and get the gaming lag insanely low.

My LG OLED is ready 🙂
