See, cuz Remedy’s last two games were Quantum Break and Alan Wake, and in this game the world changes and manipulates at, like, a quantum level, and you pick up stuff with your mind and throw it, leaving a wake behind it…
(Anyway, I figure this game needs a thread, but mods can feel free to kill it if/when a thread for Rob’s review goes live.)
I am seriously excited to get started on this when I get off work tonight. Two things from reviews so far that have been surprising to me:
For the first time I can remember, I saw a gameplay mechanic in a review and thought “oh… I wish I hadn’t seen that, it would’ve been cool to discover it in the game.” I always thought it was ludicrous to consider mechanics to be spoilers, but I might be a bit more sympathetic to that argument in the future.
The most surprising thing I’ve read in reviews so far is that protagonist Jesse Faden is not played by Lauren Cohan. I just assumed it was from the first time I saw a screenshot. I don’t even think Cohan and the actual actress, Courtney Hope, look that much alike. Am I crazy?
