@csl316: Yeah the Megan's Law bit kills me every time. Jeff takes a second as he starts to get it, then lets out a bit of a chuckle and a big smile, then fucking rolls with it because he's a goddamn professional. It's not a video of him losing it (though Ryan really gets a hearty laugh) but the chuckle that came out was earned. He thought it was really funny even if he didn't externalize it too much.

That is actually my favorite Ryan laugh of all time and has been since the day that video went up.

@artelinarose: Have you got any henchmen/companions? I found there was a point where the two-person party just wouldn't cut it, but it became a lot more manageable (although not easy) once i picked up to to NPCs in town. I've also not necessarily noticed the enemies taking too much advantage of the interactions between status effects - although they do make a lot of use of individual effects, and they can really screw you. Poison isn't too bad, but being on fire can really take its toll on the hit points, and having someone get frozen for three turns can really make things tricky!

I have a four person party, yes.

I think the point where I just said fuck it and turned it down to easy was a bit where my tank would go from 240hp to 30 in less than one full turn because one enemy would hit her with poison and then the second would explode it with fire. I could NOT get through this encounter without her being killed almost immediately.

This game is hard as fuck. I had to push the difficulty down to easy after a point because I was tired of losing at least one person per fight.

I feel like one of the issues is the enemies are TOO smart sometimes; they know how everything reacts with everything perfectly and they combo it all up like crazy.

All showers are both before you go to sleep and after you wake up, if you think about it.

@fateofnever: you know, I'd hate to be THAT guy...but FYI when u get to the depths n you kill that zombie butcher dude u can get his sack that he wears on his head, which you can take back to the asylum, drop it in snuggly's nest, quit the game and start it back up and whalla! U now have that same item u just spent 4 hours trying to get while it took me a couple of seconds..but good job anyways.

It's not about the item.

Here's a good pull-quote from GameSpot's interview with one of Insomniac's community managers:

"Of course. Self-expression is super important to us," Insomniac Games community manager Brandon Winfrey said. "So you can be female, you can be male, you can be different skin tones, you can be different body types.

Winfrey also confirmed that all of the clothing in Sunset Overdrive is gender-neutral. "So if you want to be a dude in a skirt, you can be a dude in a skirt. Just be who you want to be," he said.

That last line was the best part. Guys in skirts, women in tuxedos or something, who cares? It sounds like a lot of fun. I like that they are making a game that looks like they're trying to have fun and wackiness take center stage. This and Splatoon are now on my radar.

I have a thing for women in suits. It would be tempting to make a female character just for that.

Yes, but only if you don't use offensive terminology.

But what if I want to play as an alternate version Peter Dinklage who happens to be super racist?

Jordan Prentice as Jimmy from In Bruges?
