I love you, son.
This came out today, is anyone playing?

I'm not too far in but it's pretty good so far. Like a mix between Fallout: New Vegas and Mass Effect.

How open ended is it, from your experience?

It's set in a group of colony worlds overrun by corporations, and you are a colonist who's been stranded in stasis for 70 years on a colony ship that never made it there. This old scientist guy wakes you up and sends you down to investigate the colonies and what happened.

How open ended is it, from your experience?
It's like Fallout: New Vegas with the hub-world system of Mass Effect. Rather than having one big open space you have several smaller open-world spaces that you can travel between in your ship. The game has full dialogue trees and branching story paths, and all but one character can be killed.

This game is brilliant, like it's got all the best parts of the WRPG genre pre-Skyrim.

After playing it a bit more it's reminiscent of KOTOR more than Mass Effect.

Who paid you to look at this?
I just took a look at the store and it's included on Game Pass. I had no idea this was going to happen. Downloading it right now, I'm pretty hyped.

Finally got off the first planet. Heard the game can be fairly short if you don't do at least some of the side quests so I've just been taking my time, but I like what I've played so far.

Taking my time, playing Supernova. Makes it a bit more slow paced, gotta take my time, go back to my ship to rest up if I'm injured I really like it. Pretty immersive,  only thing I'm annoyed about is the saving system in that mode, especially because early on you die pretty easily.

But in a way it feels like Rust but with a story, the way I see it if I'm not too careful then I pay for it...probably will end up steam rolling better but I like the start of a difficult RPG like this, just trying to survive.

I'm on Supernova too, it gets a lot more manageable once you leave Emerald Vale, and you at least get an autosave when transitioning between instances.

Yeah after a few deaths I realised you could go in and out of Edgewater for a quick save, its handy after a quick run to an outpost.

Another complaint, the shotgun fucking sucks

I think in Supernova it's especially important to keep your guns up-to-date through tinkering, etc, especially those of your companions or you'll really struggle. But yeah, the shotgun does suck.

It's pretty incredible this is free on Game Pass while Bruhthesda is charging 100 dollars to rent a private server on F76 lmao.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
i keep getting this title confused with the outer wilds
Which is also an excellent game

The Game Pass as a whole costs $3 less per month than Fallout 1st and now contains The Outer Worlds and Fallout: New Vegas, as well as over 100 other games.

I think Bethesda is broken.

Hell did the Outer Worlds even come with a special edition? A preorder bonus?

The game doesnt even have subtle micro transactions,  that's a pretty big statement in this economy of video games, pushed by the whole anti corporate message the game has got going. It's just amazing to see a game come out and it's just a game, nothing more nothing less.

AAA devs have broken me

This game is honestly a breath of fresh air. I can't remember the last time I had extensive dialogue options and branching path choices in an RPG. Refreshing af.

My only nitpickety gripe would be that the gunplay could be a bit tighter, but I guess I'm just too accustomed to Borderlands 3 and Apex.

Nice to see that while the unsustainable AAA industry is collapsing in on itself a nice mid-budget game with no microtransactions, (as far as we know) no excessive crunch, and not all that much marketing can still be a success.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.

Literally make game and sell game. The thing that everyone is saying is impossible because making games is so expensive.

I have played very little, but first impressions are good. I have missed a (good) Fallout style rpg.

The humor is more on point than I was expecting too, like how Halcyon's religion is entirely devoid of spirituality.

Spoiler
Diverted power to Edgewater but convinced Reed to step down so Adelaide could take over and persuaded the rest of the Deserters too. In hindsight I kinda regret it and wish I'd helped out the Deserters fully but oh well, it's pretty cool that there are quite a few ways to finish that quest.

I was not sure who to help, but ultimately helped Reed, since I figured if the town closed, then everyone would be screwed. Seemed to work out alright after all, got more medicine and more lenient on the workers since there was more of them. And Adelaide admitting that she was killing people to fertilise her crops when I went to get the power core thingy kinda made me less sympathetic to her

WAIT SHE WAS KILLING PEOPLE?

Fuck...I gave her the town and let Reed run free for a week. I Knew she was using corpses taken from graves, how do you find that out? I regret my decision...
