I don't know if anypony here has played it or seen videos for the game, I've been enjoying it.
My problem with the game though is the female main character voice sounds like Rainbow Dash. It's actually the woman that did Artemis from Young Justice. I don't know why this bothers me but it does.

It looks like a pretty fun game, to bad it's gonna get shit on by things like this http://babylonian.tumblr.com/post/101189554144/how-to-enjoy-sunset-overdrive

And all the other wacky 4th wall breaking.

I dunno, I've enjoyed the writing.
I guess it's a hit and a miss for some people.
Less uptight people should enjoy it.

It can be witty sometimes, but other times it's a bit to force.
Like my pic says. "Heh, aren't fetch quests dumb? I mean, why would you gather 50 items of this one thing? That's so dumb"
>Makes you gather 50 items.
>MIA FACCIA QUANDO
Ok, it was cute the first time something like that happen, the 4th walk breaking, but you can't make a game around that.

It's basically a awkward forum.
Not much different from this site.

>>132759
Well it's not really made around it. It's a open world game that doesn't take itself too seriously. They do a lot of 4th wall breaking and ref to other things, this is mostly just one liners though or the occasional two second visual like the Portal respawn animation.

i have seen reddit, but i dont get the point.

it look like the comment section of youtube, but with out an actual video to watch or anything.

i just never got interest on using it.

You basically got the gist of it.

I guess it's suppose to be more like Japans 2ch, sans the direct image posting. A place for people of varying interests to come together.
It's not something you ever really need to get involved with but don't be surprised if you get it as your first result sometimes on Google when searching for shit.

I understand that it's more of a joke game, hence the trailer at e3 where it should some super tuff army guy, and then your hero coming in and being badass and one uping that normal merc in video games.

But there is a point where shouting out Video game tropes goes stale fast.
>How long do you think it will take to charge it up?
>About 4 waves of bad guys
Yes, I got a chuckle out of that, and other things. Like how you come back to life through coffins...but they overplay it way to much.

Like saints row. They make the same kind of jokes in their game, but it's not non-stop. Like sunset overdrive is deadpool level of Hey, you are in a video game, we are gonna tell you every second.

It's a really awesome game, but the choices for the jokes and lines, gets kinda stale fast.

It's like madworld for me. I muted the announcers right away and just played the game like that. Nothing but the music, and jack fucking shit up. It made the game so much better.

John DiMaggio and Greg Proops are amazing, how dare you sir.
I say this without having actually heard them or any of the audio in the game as the one time I played Madworld it was on a projector with broken speakers.
But still, how dare you.

I never said they were bad, just not right in that kind of game.

But mostly cause every single fucking time you did something they would say the same thing over and over.

I could only take them saying "That's a clever solution to a thorny problem" only so many times before I had to mute them

But their voices were amazing.

Repetitive announcers are a different problem, a tragic limitation of the video game medium.

The 4th wall stuff in this is a one time thing. That Reddit mention or when you unlock the air dash and they mention GameFAQs, those only happen one time each.

Aint that the truth. I loved their ones liners, but I could only stand it so many times when I shoved a beam into someponys head and they said the same thing over and over.

But a one time thing? No...they do it with in the first few minutes.
Like first it's with making sure the OD don't get in, then after you get your upgrades you hear that voice. "Press A" *Screams the voices "A? What do you mean A? This isn't a game." Says your hero.
It was ok, at first, Like I enjoy it when games do that, but it slowly made me do this

Well I'm not saying the same running joke happens over and over, more of they keep throwing in these 4th wall breaking jokes in about every talking scene.

Yeah, it's a great and funny way to introduce things, but this game is really pushing the whole "Ha, look at us, we are wacky and not like normal shooters, we know this is a video game and we are gonna make fun at that"
Great game and all. A bit to heavy on the tropes and 4th wall breaking.

I would buy it still, if it wasn't only on xbox

Blame Sony for that one. With how they tanked the Resistance franchise and wouldn't let Insomniac keep ownership of SO if they published it.

It's more likely to come out on PC that it's a Xbox exclsuive.
Dead Rising 3
Ryse
Project Spark
The SO PC "mistake" probably wasn't one at all.
I don't recall the last Sony dev'd/published game that was released on PC too aside from like Everquest and DC Universe.

Games are finally coming out but it's a day late and a dollar short.
I bought Bayonetta 2 but have so much other stuff to play.
Shadow of Mordor
COD
Sunset
The Evil Within
Halo
