I'm beginning to think the oxygen system hatred stems from either a) people who haven't played the game yet and only judge it by this QL or b) only played until they were a level 2.

Right on! I was slightly hesitant due to Jeff's Borderlands "diatribe", specifically about the gravity and Oxygen mechanics, but they're not an issue at all. Only once have I ever reached 0 oxygen, and from there your health super-slowly depletes. And if those mechanics are really such a huge deal-breaker, play claptrap! No oxygen needed cept for boosting.

Sorry as a raging Toadette fan, since Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, this trailer is garbage. I was so excited to see her finally getting some love, it's been a while, and the first thing that happens is her getting whisked off by a giant bird? Then the narrator goes on a rampage about Captain Toad and his amazing adventure, even though at least 1/4th of the cuts feature Toadette doing stuff?

Now unless Toadette has some sort of gender-thing going on that I don't know about, this doesn't seem right at all. Unless they're both Toad. Then again aren't they all Toad? Or .. toadstools? Um, either way, I want a Captain Toadette adventure and this narrator won't even acknowledge her, or him, and that's just wrong! Unless, as said she is him, and in that case I guess we're good.

Regardless, it's so adorable I want to hug everything ;-;

Does anyone else feel like the camera appears to be weirdly high off the ground at times? Or do those corridors just have really low ceilings?

Although this is an oldish comment, and some people may have responded, I first thought it was low ceilings but then even later in the game the doors don't seem to get taller even if the enviroments do. Then I remembered the actor who plays Ellen Ripley is 6 feet tall, so her daughter might be just as tall, if not even more?

I'm psyched for this game even if I've never played it, just because Brad and Jeff are. So yes I'll spend money on this just to support .. whatever this is. I mean it's cute, the music is charming but I don't like rhythm games. Still, I want it!

Can I get a hell yeah?!

2 seconds in and this Redemption thing is doomed judging by music alone.

YEAHHH, RIPPING!

I've been playing this game for a few hours and I'm a little torn so far. It runs super smooth on my PC at the highest settings, so that's nice, but it also makes the Uruks look really good while the background and landscape just looks outdated and plain awful. Coming off of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter where everything is gorgeous might be why I'm feeling this way. But considering the game types it's not really a fair comparison. Still it creates some discordance for me and I wish they had payed more attention to landscaping and enviromental details.

But whatever, destroying hordes of puerile-sounding uruks is still fun and doubly so while riding on a big ugly dog.
