I was really hoping the story would get me into this game, but holy shit the first 20 minutes have put me way off of it. It's told so clunkily. Just point after point hitting you over the head with exposition and setup. I don't know about this...

@t_wah: @john1912: Great, thanks guys! I had inheritable traits backwards. So now I just need to look for a good inheritable trait in a high level weapon and equip it in my secondary slot! Cool.

Soul matching just literally takes a piece of gear and makes it the level of another piece of gear, right? So If I have a level 9 ax I like and I put a level 30 piece of trash into it, it raises the ax to level 30 and all the stats along with it?

I know there is some stuff about inheritable traits. Does only the inheritable trait go forward, and everything else is random? Or does everything just get better?

Ax only. I like slow, powerful weapons that I can get 1 hit in and then dodge around until I can hit again.

I don't really like the feel of the rest of the stuff I've tried, but maybe it's because I'm so used to the ax. You guys are making the sickle and spear sound pretty fun.

I also love headshotting guys with the ranged weapons. This game has one of the best head explosion animations ever.

Anyone who sat at home thinking "I can't vote for either of these candidates" or "my vote doesn't matter" or "I'm going to write in Bernie Sanders or vote for Gary Johnson to prove a point!" should be ashamed of themselves. I can't believe we allowed this to happen.

What a fucking shitshow. I'd love to get out of the US and leave this terrible president behind, but where is safe from this self centered piece of shit?

I like the old God of Wars, and this looks fine to me, but I'm a little curious why this one has everyone so excited. It looks like every other 3rd person game to me.

Why is this game called Inside?

Why indeed.

Well, you do end the game Outside, as opposed to Inside. And you go Inside people's minds.

The overall gist that I got is:

that the Evil Corporation was researching Matrix-esque human batteries. It seemed like the black masses were some sort of mind-controlling parasite they discovered that let them breed/create vegetative humans for this purpose - you follow their early research through the first half of the game, from animal testing to humans controlled with a device to "zombies" that just kind of instinctively act as one unit. At the climax, you form up with your buddies and bust out of the facility's pilot reactor (possibly during its first live test, given the crowd?), trash the building, and roll out into the world. I don't think the red shirt boy is meant to have any characterization other than "curious kid who wants to explore that crazy complex in the woods."

This isn't a bad way to look at it. My biggest question is

after the game portrays the organization as this faceless monolith with all of its employees operating in lockstep, why did several scientists seem to break ranks and help you escape in the last few moments?

I think they're actually tricking you into going into that water tank. They lure you into the area with the trapdoor to lock you into the tank. But then you break out. Unless they intended you to break out... but I think they're just trying to re-contain you.
