One Hour Photo came out after Memento, but good references. :P

Edit: The way the soundtrack morphs and evolves based on your location and progress is really impressive.

I hope this can be taken constructively, but this is the first video I've stopped just minutes in to. The opening banter just really turned me for from watching any further. Thank you for the hard work regardless.

Constructive criticism requires specificity rather than just saying "I don't like this." It also entails giving helpful and specific suggestions for changing for the better. What, in particular, about the opening banter put you off the video?

Man the music in this is so good. I played up to about the point this ends, need to play more of it and see where it goes. That bit near the end where the music starts using the breathing sound as percussion is kind of amazing.

Ill echo that the sounddesign in this is absolutely amazing, a step above most AAA productions. Put on a good pair of headphones and enjoy.

Im at a point where a major twist on the story+gameplay just happened, this game kinda goes places. Its not a GREAT videogame gameplay-wise but it is very different and really interesting. I feel like I dont see weird, cool stuff like this often anymore.

Funny hearing Alex praising Ray Winstone when at this point to me he's just the annoying floating head, off the annoying betting adverts.

I put 10 hours into this game before abandoning it.

I started to lose interest after 4 or 5 and those last few hours were, at best, dull in terms of gameplay.

Be aware that the early story set up is intriguing but it isn't sustained later into the game so a quick look isn't the best barometer of this *particular* game.

That's some real solid music and sound design; but damn are those some drab, boring, and claustrophobic environments to move around in.

The voice actor for Black is Edward Dogliani. He actually is in Game of Thrones and plays the Lord of Bones! He is in a few other games as well.

It's so odd that this would come out without any previous marketing that broke through the noise, no trailer coverage or basically anything, just another release lost in the wave of steam releases.

Perhaps it's things like this that justify the crazy money spent on "AAA" games. If this game had a big marketing campaign, it would be called "AAA" but instead its probably destined to the hidden gem lists.

I never got around to watching this at the time. Dan's "beatboxing" is even worse than I imagined.

Can you expand on this? I re-watched the beginning and wasn't sure what it was, the banter about the voice actor or the movies like momento & one hour photo?

I thought the game looked and sounded good, so I'll probably buy it sometime after release. I'd also be interested if this particular gun mod was included if Wolfenstein ever revisits WW2:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krummlauf

It looks a bit unwieldy in the picture on that page, but I think that's just a display arrangement. I found a better look at it in TV show QI Series H, Episode 1 beginning late in the 14th minute where you can actually see a real one from various angles.

"The Sturmgewehr Vierundvierzig or Sturmgewehr 44 used by the Nazis during World War Two, was the first modern assault rifle, and the Krummlauf was a bent barrel with a periscope which allowed the user to shoot around corners and over walls. It was invented by a washing machine manufacturer called Hans-Joachim Shayede. Such modifications were first used by the Australians during World War One and modern versions are used by the Israeli army."

The WW1 version was called a Periscope rifle.

I realize this is a highly subjective opinion, I just wanted to comment as well when I saw these comments. I do not know exactly what earlgreigh did not like personally, but I had a similar feeling between the 5 and 15 minutes mark. As soon as the voice actor was first heard Alex and Dan started a discussion about the actor and even though Vinny tried his best to show off the game and explain what he likes Dan and Alex totally ignored him and the game for that matter. I dunno, I feel like that was totally disrespectful against Vinny and the viewers. Maybe my memories are playing tricks on me, but I do not remember Quick Looks being like this in the first few years. That is all and as was already said, thank you for all Your hard work.

Wow this game was not what I expected, real interesting with memory stuff and also pretty free form in terms of gameplay (like that "puzzle?" Vinny "solved?"). Side note, did anyone find the video really dark?

This game actually was in a lot of "next best games" lists on most websites and youtube in fact I got tired of seeing "Get Even" trailers whenever I would fire up a youtube video or someone showing it in one of the top upcoming FPS games. It looked like a VR experience at first and maybe that is what they need to make this so it becomes more memorable. Watching them play this was alright but I didn't see the story going anywhere that wouldn't make me roll my eyes because "person trapped by guy doing experiment" is getting really old. It was one of the worst parts of the movie the void which was really good except for the whole crazy doctor doing experiments thing. You go from a spooky old house to a labyratory. Really wish that game developers had more imagination. With this premise they could have done so much more stepped into other realities / dimensions but nope just a dude with memory problems doing stuff.

I was recently looking for a pistol and was surprised that very few pistols still have safeties on them.
