I know I'm not the only one here playing this right now. What is (without major spoilers) everyone's feelings on the game so far? I've put in about an hour and a half, maybe? I don't know if my feelings will change as this game is supposed to be long, but so far in the little I've played, I honestly feel that it's an amazing experience so far. Maybe it's just the production values though. The sound design and visuals are fantastic. I'm not sure if the story will make me feel anything, but the environments so far do and the music that kicks in is really good. The only thing I dislike is the jarring, goofy-ass names of the characters. The game feels so serious, and then you hear 'Die-Hardman'.
So yeah, not very far in, but I love the desolate setting. It reminds me of games like Shadow of the Colossus or a Souls game. The music at times sounds like Silent Hill too. I'm probably not far enough to decide if I like it, but from the bits I've played, it's spectacular. Does anyone else just hold down the triggers as you go? I'm not yet sure if there's any penalty to doing it aside from the fact that you have to hold down the buttons as you go (which, isn't comfortable). I also don't mind that it's one of those stories where characters know so much more than the player does, so they use terms that are foreign to the player until you figure it out later. I've heard some have an issue with that.
