    You're not incorrect there sir; I will not say that I'm not disappointed when a game I anticipate is announced to be an exclusive. I would love to actually enjoy Bloodborne at a stable framerate & without horrendous quantities of motion blur, and I'm displeased that I had to wait three years for a version of Horizon Zero Dawn with intuitive controls. There's a good many games I'll never play that I'd probably enjoy otherwise, as they'll never be on my platform of choice. However, is console exclusivity truly an indictment of PC gaming, or of an industry that loves holding art for ransom until one buys in to their walled garden & recurrent spending scheme?

    I suspect there's not been on realistic instance wherein a game publisher can, in any remote degree of honesty, state "We're publishing on [console] because the functionality of a gaming PC is simply not up to par."

    I'm at the end of my first playthrough of Catherine. It's pretty incredible how you struggle through the puzzles the first time through and you don't feel like you're actually learning anything. You can replay the puzzles for the gold trophy so you can skip the puzzles and just replay the story different ways, and I'm doing that now to prepare for the end. Playing them back now (I've now replayed every puzzle except for the end puzzle(s)) I'm having no issues at all. Some are tricky to get Gold since you have to be perfect, but I only got stuck once or twice where I had trouble figuring out the solution again.

    So it turns out Metro Exodus is leaving Game Pass at the end of the month so I've decided to play that before I have to buy it (which I know I'll do once a sale hits). I'm only in the first area, but this game is fucking awesome already. The Metro games are bar none the standard bearer for survival horror games. That even out of the Metro tunnels of the first two games and into the wide world, though some of that horror-atmosphere is lacking, it's even more of a survival game now. And the world does feel quite alive with how time passes, weather changes, monsters and mutants move around quite fluidly. The loading times are brutal, but when it's loading up such a big area and there is ZERO loading within that area, even going in and out of buildings, it really makes the world feel connected and whole in a way no other game has done for me before.

    I reckon I'm about halfway through Metro Exodus and it's in the running for being my favourite game of all time. I knew it was going to be special, but I had no idea it would be this speicial.

    Got myself the three most recent Quantic Dream PS-exclusive games that were finally released for PC last year. Finished Beyond: Two Souls in two long sittings. Great story and surprisingly metaphysical. Playing as Ellen Page for most of the game was a huge plus, she's awesome. Now about halfway into Detroit: Become Human. Very intriguing and very similar to B2S, in a good way. We'll see where it goes but so far I'm also loving it. The only negative is the camera controls in both games. It's that weird static camera thing where the character is not tied to the camera and can move independent of it. It annoys me to no end, cause I can have the character walking straight and then they need to turn the corner, so instinctively I turn the camera, but no, you need to walk sideways!

    That is actually an excellent description. It's fine , and while I would consider it a better overall game than Fallout 3 or 4, I wouldn't even rank it in the same ballpark as the first two games.. Frankly, I found the bulk of it to be simply boring. It took me three separate attempts to push through to the end, simply because the busywork that came about from shoehorning Metro Exodus into an open-world-survival-crafting-zombie game smothered all of what made its progenitors one of my favorite franchises.

    The best parts were all the tense, linear stages: The two final maps, the 'Two Colonels' DLC, Yamantau base, the bunker in the second region. Essentially all the time not spent in the overworld that made up the core gameplay; wandering an oversized map full of nothing but crafting parts I already have too many of, being set upon by the same dirty prune people, hoping that the next location will hold something interesting.

    I don't find Metro Exodus to be remotely boring. I think it's positively incredible so far just wrapping up the Caspian level. Outside of increasing the scope of the game and letting it breathe, it's every bit as good as the previous games in terms of tense combat, and the openness of the game makes the cramped dungeons feel all that more claustrophobic and sure, that is a taste of the Metro that I love, but I also don't think another game in the Metro tunnels would have been as fresh and engaging...it would have just been more of the same. Much like how Bioshock left Rapture, Metro left the tunnels but actually gives you a large, fully realized world to explore with enough sidequests and enemies to keep things engaging. The gunplay is so smooth...I can't get sick of popping off headshots from hundreds of yards away, or taking on several demons at once. I like that while the game doesn't force you to be stealthy, it punishes you if you're not by having enemies call for backup and how 3 mutants can quickly turn into 8....basically the game encourages me to be as accurate as possible and take out all enemies with one shot.

    The game design itself is stunning. The graphics are ridiculous and the lighting and weather changes are seamless. The sound design is the best I've played in gen so far. The way your gunshots echo throughout the desert. I love that if you look down your character has legs and arms...not sure how common that is in games these days, but it really shines in the quiet moments so much your wife laying with her head on her lap, taking a smoke break, playing a guitar and your fingers playing actual cords while finger picking the strings...it's so immersive in ways few games are. I like that I can sit and listen to my comrades talk for 20 minutes, that they feel like actual people.

    I guess if you're not into exploration then you wouldn't like Exodus as much as the first two games which are more old school, level-based shooters. I enjoy myself just taking in the scenery and The Caspian level is fucking gorgeous. I don't really get the exploring just for parts is bad idea. The reason why you've got plenty of parts is because you'll find enough along the way of the main quest, but if you're going off and exploring and getting into a bunch of extra combat situations, you're going to use way more parts. You're not exploring for parts, those parts are there so you are able to keep exploring. If you don't want to explore you don't have to explore because you're not really missing out on anything except a few weapon's upgrades and some lore which means you have the choice to just do the main quests and fly through the game. I don't see how that's a problem at all. I can see if the game was FORCING you to do a bunch of exploration for stupid fetch quests to pad out the runtime, so far I haven't encountered any of that.

    Downloaded a fun little game they just put on gamepass called Streets of Rogue by Tiny Build. Old school graphics with a whole lot of fun game play. Different characters with different abilities change up how you want/can go through the levels. Kill everything, hack your way through, stealth etc etc...the choice is up to you. I couldn't stop playing yesterday trying the different characters and trying to unlock more characters. Highly recommended.

    Finished Detroit: Become Human, excellent experience! It's highly branching with multiple ways each chapter can end, playable characters can permanently die, and the ending is highly epic and hugely variable based on all your previous choices, as is the ultimate outcome. One of the few games that made me tear up.

    Finally pulled the trigger on Doom Eternal. It's. . . strange.

    I enjoy the new traversal options. The combat is meaty, though some enemies are bullet sponges, but overall fun. The gameplay is fantastic, better than 2016, but somehow the game just feels wrong. I'm going to blame the shift in tone from 2016. The world and arenas are larger to accommodate the movement system, but everything feels emptier. I'm not digging the storyline, either. They keep trying to wax poetic about concepts that they act as though are established elements. They stop the gameplay for pointless cutscenes. The devs keep trying to add personality to the Doom Slayer, and it's just jarring compared to how well iit was done in Doom16.

    It's strange to be both enjoying and frustrated by this game simultaneously. I've tolerated bad gameplay for the sake of a good story before, but it's surprisingly rare that put up with the reverse; if a game is bereft of plot, or the story isn't satisfying, I tend to lose interest. This, I'm just powering through. Angrily.

    Okay, I changed my mind on Metro Exodus. I'm replaying the game on new game plus on iron man mode, meaning you can't save the game and if you die you have to restart the level. On Caspian, I seriously was running to avoid a sniper, went up a little ramp and fell off the side of a bridge and had to restart the mission about 75% done. So I restarted it and got further than I did, but stopped my car to fight off an ambush, and when I was getting back in my car afterwards a tumbleweed on fire rolled into me and caught me on fire as the getting in the car animation was going, so I couldn't move or use a health pack and died in the car during the animation. WTF? WTF IS THAT BULLSHIT?!? All the great feelings this game gave me and it's gotta fuck with me now.....
