@facelessvixen: the gamepass things is actually pretty good for pc.

Anyway just finished the main story of control and holy shit that last quarter of the game is a real ride. I stopped doing the sidequests at a certain point cause they only really give you ability points and i felt like i could just push on. (after the end, you can just mop up the rest btw)

Man this is a cool game, again, i'm not the hugest fan of the general gameplay. The shooting and powers are servicable but you come to really rely on the TK like Ben said in the podcast. The guns just lack something.

But the whole vibe and aesthetic of the game is just so on point. The game has several moments where i just sat staring at my screen in complete awe of the artistic vision on display. It reminded me a whole lot of the time i spent playing Inside. It's been a while since a game pulled me in so hard like Control did. I just love a strong curated experience that doesn't bang you over the head with a ton of systems and a huge open world. Sure the Oldest house is open to some degree, but every bit of it feels so expertly designed. Definitely a strong contenter for GOTY for me. Kudos to Remedy.

(i played on pc, so no real performance issues to speak off, amd user so no RTX but this game is a real stunner cause of the artistic direction and execution.)

The part where you go trough the maze with that music that you get from Athi just had me grinning from ear to ear.

i fucking love this game, holy shit. Sure the gameplay isn't that great (it's perfectly fine, just nothing new) but holy shit does this game has a cool vibe and style. It's like X-files / stranger things / fringe all smashed togheter.

The Beyond patch itself is really enjoyable ---- in single player.

Multiplayer so far has been a mess. I can't even join more than 4 friends at a time, when HG seemed to indicate you can join with 32 friends. If all of this is just a glorified meeting hub for groups of 4 friends at a time then they lied again.

Has anyone successfully joined together in a group of more than 4 players?

they never said you can form a group with up to 32 players, in the nexus you can see up to 16 players at once in that instance. You can however potentially see up to 32 players in the universe, let's say on a planet. But you can't make a group that big afaik

They were so vague about the way it works that it became a bit misleading at first glance. I understand now that it was never meant to be more than 4 players in a group, but I think they could have been more upfront about the multiplayer system. In my mind, 32 players could be any combination of friends and strangers, so what's stopping them from letting 32 friends joining an instance?

I'm sure there is a legitimate technical reason for it, but it doesn't really excuse the vagueness.

i totally understand, Vague is Sean murray's middle name i'm afraid. :D

Anyway i've been messing with a save editor to get around some of the insane storage limitations and it's been far more enjoyable :D

it's still no man's sky after all, it's a inventory management game and a crafting game. Beyond doesn't change that one single bit.

It's actually probably a good thing that it takes most people awhile so they avoid what happened to me. I did a lot of Freeplay at first to get a handle on the game and some of the abilities and weapons. I completed one of the Tomb Challenges without knowing it, found a Tomb without knowing what it was and because I was like Level 5, my reward was . . .

. . .

. . .

Two common items. Hooray?

the gear rarity is tied to level, so pre level 10 you will never get a green item, same with other colors.
