    I still can't believe Focus Home Interactive cancelled the initial dev of this game for Cyanide's version. I bet they regret that decision now after that garbage game got released and this one has all the hype and positive press

    I really like this part of the interview. Despite being an open world game, they deliberately avoided making it a "checklist amusement park".

    Was expecting the worse but the gameplay videos actually look interesting. Of course they might be showing choice bits and front loading the content, wait and see how the post release pans out.

    Yeah, what about us players who have the reflexes of a dead brick? Whenever I played Quake Champions I would always come in dead last, and that was against a team of bots.

    You might be at a disadvantage, and that's OK in my opinion. Just like I'm at a disadvantage playing soccer with friends, or RTSs. A game that caters to all will please none.

    They're unreliable about replying on twitter but I tried anyway.

    I don't care about the difficulty, it's more that shitty shooting sections fucking up otherwise pretty cool and atmospheric games is not exactly unheard of.

    Well I mean it makes sense. There's so many lovecraft games and stories where the protagonists just go "Better walk in to that subterranean lair of demon tentacle alien gods with no weapon" and this guy actually has a brain and came prepared.

    So many bad news concerning this game lately.
    I was hyped on buying it at release date but now I'll just wait for Steam sales in like 2021. or something
