Brad should just fork over for a new monitor. He's been complaining about his current one for what feels like two years. When reviewing games, it probably helps to have a nice screen to judge them with. I'm sure it would be a good investment. In a horribly hyperbolic example it would be like someone using on old off brand CRT to review Metro 2033 and complaining how bad it looks or that the UI is way too small.

The amount of food you need to intake seems like it would become a chore. Having to stop every ten minutes build a fire cook then a rabbit, doesn't sound fun. But survival games aren't really my thing anyway.

Hoping it was just because Brad had shit weapons and not that those dudes take that much damage, that would get super annoying. Do the body part stuff ward them off or just fuel your serial killer tendencies?

Nice video..

Been playing the game a bit and it's in a very early stage where I find bugs to ruin most things - plus the gathering can be a little much..

There's still time and I hope to see more mechanics and bug fixed as there is certainly potential - but until then I think I'll find something else to play..

Dan asking about the Blair Witch games; I've never even seen the movie before, but I would guarantee that The Forest is more faithful to The Blair Witch Project than those old games.

@amyggen: yeah not knowing about this before i thought it was a rust sort of impenetrable no holds barred multi thing. im totally fascinated by those but at the same time know ill never hold my own in one. this ill check out eventually, but there's just waaaay too much stuff i have to play right now (poor me huh)

i really like the idea of being hunted with no real way to fight back iin a game, but also knowing it's a game kinda ruins it and i think ill stopped being scared and start being more annoyed after the first few deaths.

I can't tell if I want this game or not.

On the one hand, I don't like the notion of surviving by myself with no end in sight. That's what turned me off of Don't Starve.

On the other, the horror elements of being watched and taken hostage by some kinda freaky people is exactly the kind of mystery I want in a game like this.

I suppose I'll wait.

The thing putting me off this game so far is how quickly the hunger metre depletes. Brad was fairly hungry, ate something until it was over half way and then soon after, it was almost empty again. That just doesn't seem very fun to me, which is why I find the Sims annoying a lot of the time.

Yeah, considering they seem to have a much slower day/night cycle than many other games in there, probably closer to Day Z's real time cycle, it gets much more noticeable when you have to eat several times a day not to starve to death, rather than maybe starting getting detrimental effects after a few days of not eating, and starving to death first after a few weeks of in-game time.

Well when you think about it does anyone really know what a game costs?

That plus the only currency I work in is souls, and nobody ever does the conversion.

I REALLY wanna check this game out, but I think I'll still wait for the official release before I throw any money on it...or maybe a sale.

Man Dan just fits right into the GB team doesn't he? It's like he's been doing QL's for six months. Plus he's a pretty chilled mother fucker. Kinda compliments Brad's laid-back disposition.

Dan does actually have prior experience doing a series of videos that are somewhat similar in format to a Quick Look. He had a series where he and his dad would play games. Some of them are really funny. Do a google. They're all still up on Game Informer. Series is Dan's Dad Plays Games He'll Hate.

Spoilers- Dan's dad doesn't hate all of them . :p

Can you play this without the weird horror alien things? I'd like to just try and survive until rescue was dispatched for the plane crash. High production values, but as with other Early Access games I can wait until it's a full-fledged product.

I think they just recently patched in a peaceful mode, so I think you can.

I cant get into these 'do anything to survive / craft' type games. Maybe it's my limited amount of time I have to play games but I always feel I best spend what time I get saving the world or something :-)

Run forest, run...right ?

MY name IRL is Forrest. You have no idea how many times I have heard this phrase. And When I introduce myself, people say "WHAT, LIKE GUMP?" and make chocolate jokes.

You think Forrest Griffin ever has that problem?

I don't think anyone is afraid to clown on Griffin these days.

When Forest Griffin did his AMA on reddit I told him my name was Forrest too, and how much did he hate that movie?

He replied : "Clearly I love it, as you can see by how much I run away in my fights."

I thought this was some kind of multiplayer Day Z clone. But this QL has sold me on it, I really like that it's SP.

@splodge: I worked with a guy named Forest at Blockbuster. Kid had a killer Walken impression. Maybe one of the best I've ever heard.

I am well used to it by now. It makes for interesting introductions though.

One of the only times I have been annoyed about it is when I was playing Watch_Dogs and after I bumped into a guy he shouted "Run Forest, run!".

I ran him over with a car. A lot.

Story time over. This Unfinished should be good :)

Videogames dude.

You mean "video-games-which-are-boasting-budgets-and-production-values-greater-than-many-Hollywood-films" dude? ;)

I'm just poking fun at the intro sequence, which obviously is attempting to add tragedy and gravitas (look, an anonymous little kid is sitting next to you, alone, for he sole purpose of tugging at our heartstrings when his digital life is cut short!). Obviously, the intro may change between now and retail release, but right now the sequence seems pretty flat in my eyes.
