    Looks like another boring aaa sony exclusive.
    Open world, activities, collectibles, zombies, outposts, lastofus-like "dramatic" story. What else, towers, detective vision?

    You forgot crafting and "survival" mechanics. Can't have a modern AAA shitshow without those.

    What's really sad is just how uninspired the game looks. It's almost indistinguishable from The Last of Us, only with proper zombies instead of mushrooms, and looks to play exactly like every other open world, third-person shooter. What's the draw supposed to be here? The zombie fad died down years ago.

    Is this another attempt with I Am Alive?
    Don't have much hope in it after SIE went to California and was infected by sjw virus. Now that's ironic...

    I am Alive was actually pretty decent game. And there weren't any zombies in it.

    Generic Zombie Open World Game: The Game.

    This is what happens when you let a studio with zero console development experience make a console game. I wonder who much money Sony has invested in Bend. I don't see a future for the studio.

    They're credited with developing the Syphon Filter series, for what it's worth. However, their last stab at development (aside from zombie game #4039485) was an Uncharted PS Vita game, and that was 8 years ago...

    I was slightly optimistic that there would be some kind of entertainment to gleam from this supposed "survival" game, but it looks like it's going to be another bland disappointment that will gobbled up and quickly spat out by vidya junkies waiting for the latest fix. It may even be forgotten altogether once the initial euphoria wears off, and written off as a loss by Sony, which makes this even more painful for them since this was supposed to be released last year.

    I'm not even sure how the delay was supposed to help, with all of the previews trickling through that showcase another lackadaisical (and glitchy) open world game with uninteresting/shit mechanics. Goofy physics (float like Merry Poppins when jumping off of things), human enemies with guns pointed in your face that let you shoot first, and polite mutants who patiently wait for you to mount your bike before attacking. Almost every enemy encounter I saw was extremely forgiving to the player, making the difficulty non-existent (includes a time slowing "focus" ability). Some of you were joking about detective vision, but this game has it too. Why? No fucking idea, but I guess the protagonist is some kind of android that can reconstruct entire past events by sniffing deer shit. It also highlights the mutant enemies through obstacles, and looks entirely out of place. Basic bleh stealth is also tacked on. Don't even care about whatever narrative they're tying to sell, since it would probably be better served as a cheap Netflix entree that a handful of bored people would watch on a rainy afternoon. The Oregon wilderness looks nice though, but all of the other crap can't justify another overpriced exclooosive hiking simulator.

    Maybe the 20GB day one patch will fix the entire game, or just seal its fate as a wasted effort that will fade from everyone's memory. Gamestop is also allowing people to return them game within 48 hours of release for full in-store credit (which is still a loss), so it sounds like $ony has another winner on their hands!

    zombie "survival" games are never interesting because mainstream audiences are pussified and thus mainstream publishers will never actually make it challenging enough to feel like a survival game where your time alive is actually meaningful. Instead it just becomes dopamine farming and endless substitute activities to keep lowest common denominator morons distracted.

    Reviews have started hitting. They're in the "mediocre to okay" range of 6s and 7s. Not particularly surprising.

    It feels like the dirty, cheap version of the Uncharted protagonists. Also the dude wearing a cap during his wedding.

    That's the point I'd assume, they're trash bikers. He's wearing a hat to get married FFS. Only people who should be mad are "classy" bikers, if such a thing exists.
