This looks pretty great and reminded me I need to play Ghost Trick!
Nice game, something to look forward to.

This is supposed to come out tonight, so I preordered it. I haven't read any reviews though, and havent seen much advertising at all :P Hope it's an ok game!
Look forward to reading impressions, thinking it will be my next purchase if it is moderately well received.

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
I was about to download the game and then I read an IGN preview that shit all over it. IGN is usually super nice regarding previews, most likely because they get paid off, so it's gotta be pretty bad.
IGN's review scored it a 5.5. I don't trust IGN much (especially considering some retard there gave Drakengard 3 a 4.8 just recently) but it's about the same everywhere else so far too. Worse still, they all say the same things: very short and completely on rails with only one ending, extremely easy to the point that you simply cannot fail the investigations, awful stealth/combat sections, tiny "open world" map, etc. The only difference of opinion seems to be whether or not the story is any good.
This was a game I was really looking forward to, but after the disappointment of Beyond: Two Souls last fall I decided to wait and see how it turned out. It's unfortunate, if the reviews are right, but the whole concept seemed extremely ambitious for that studio. Square Enix hasn't really done any promotion for the game either, so there were a lot of warning bells there too.

Just came out. This looks very, very good. I think I'm going to be buying it.
Downloading now, I'll let you know what I think when I play it after work But I usually enjoy the weird game, this one reminds me of Ghost Trick for the DS (one of the few DS games I actually really loved and played all the way through).
Sitting in my car for the evening(lots of appointments today), I'm hoping the bad reviews are just a case of reviewers without an affinity for it. (since its really not a defined genre from the looks LA Noire is closest and that was almost completely unique)
New genres are a good thing, will be really disappointed if this flunks out.
Yeah, was hoping this was going to be good. I'm not encouraged by the reviews.
GF wants to grab this, she likes detective games good/ bad idea?

That's awful and you should feel bad.

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.

About 1-2 hrs in so far, it's very much investigation - almost entirely - not enjoying it too much personally, it's a change of pace, but to something I'm not really too keen on personally.
Reminds me alot of old "Myst" style games in fact, basically just searching everywhere for everything then some minor puzzling.
It's probably OK for a narrow type of person - unfortunately, I'm not one.
This actually looks really cool, definitely interested in hearing more reviews. I was iffy about LA Noire mainly because the main character sucked and because I got tired of driving around and doing shoot outs. If this game removes those aspects of it, could be fun.
I love point and click adventures, Fahrenheit/Heavy Rain, L.A. Noire, etc. and this game is not doing a thing for me.
The gameplay is like if you took L.A. Noire and removed the driving and guns, replaced them with 5 times as many dumb collectibles, then also removed any possibility of failure. I understand why the pre-order bonus was a cheater map for all that shit; the city isn't even that big and there's like 240 things to collect. The 'puzzles' are like being given a multiple choice quiz with 7 answers, 5 of which could technically be considered correct, and you're expected to pick the 3 'most correct' ones. I made a couple mistakes early on by overthinking things, before I realized that the solutions really are just braindead easy.
Can't judge the story yet but I'm not terribly optimistic based on the fact that the killer seems to be superhuman/supernatural.
I've encountered a few bugs already too, latest one I had to posses someone to get past a ground obstacle, that person then pathed incorrectly and got stuck in a wall, had to reload that one.
Ive been playing 7 hours slowly (so about 4 hours for an average gamer), and it's 90% collection, with the rest being really braindead investigations. With no way to fail. I could be playing the chinese version and still click my way through it.
Again though, I love the concept, and to steal a line from every sub-par MMO "It has potential"
Yeah, that's the problem. It was a cool concept, but it was just utterly wasted on a studio that has only made a string of awful games and Quantum Conundrum (which was only average at best).
Man, you guys are desperate for something to play, huh?
Right, but it's not very good at all from everything I read, yet several here paid for it. I just don't know how anyone can buy something sight unseen these days.
Ah, well I don't have a problem buying things sight-unseen, as long as I know what I'm getting myself into. Drakengard 3 is about the only game I've bought recently on a whim, and it turned out to be the best game I've played in a very long time. Watch_Dogs, I pretty much expected to fail to live up to the retarded amount of hype Ubi generated for it, and bought a cheap Nvidia voucher accordingly (sadly, even $25 felt like too much spent on it in the end).
This game was an extremely ambitious concept, developed by a unproven studio, and when S-E saw the final product they apparently felt that it was deserving of zero promotion or advertising whatsoever. The massive disappointment of Beyond: Two Souls left me rather wary of games in this genre too. So yeah, I didn't pay for it. Had reviewers been wrong about the game I'd happily have paid, or at least bought an AMD Never Settle Silver/Gold voucher off Ebay, but unfortunately they were right.
Back in my non-disability days, I'd probably wait though simply because the reviews were popping up bad and I didn't have the extra ~50-60 hrs a week to play games that I have now. Hell, during my working days I'd be lucky to get what I get most days in an entire week.
Besides from what I got on the phone from Gamestop, once I platinum it tonight or so (literally need ONE collectible ghost message thing to finish it, which doesn't seem included on the "cheater map" thing) they'll supposedly give me $38 credit for it, so effectively a $22 rental - not that bad of a sting at the end of the day, about "indy game" cost and duration. (And even if they drop it in the meantime, Amazon only updates weekly on their TIVs from what I've seen and it's $33.20 there for a very useful Amazon gift card)
No, I have no kids, but I am working. I'm not judging you, just saying I would rather avoid games that suck and being there on the first day doesn't matter in any way to me so it's easy to avoid those games. If anything, you guys are providing people like me the means to save money and time on them!
i torrented it to see if I'd like it. I really liked LA Noir, but imo this game doesn't really feel like it that much. This game feels more like Alan Wake mixed up with Beetlejuice mixed up with a little Telltale gaming. Its has more an indie feel to it than a AAA game, although the voice acting is top notch. It is slightly "scary" (not as much as Alan Wake).
Not bad, but one of those $5/10 steam sale games you get, if I paid $50-60 for it on a console I'd feel totally ripped off. I've read it takes only 5-10 hours to completely finish the game, so... yeah
Why does anyone buy PC games, especially right after release?
Finally got around to playing this and my god this game is bad. Such an interesting premise gone to waste.
Calling a new IP without zombies and/or boobs a cash grab is a bit of a reach. If anything, they probably suffered from a limited budget and tight schedule that did not allow them to make the game they hoped they could do.
