    It turns out that Monday's The Outer Worlds first 20 minutes gameplay video at IGN was just the opening shot in a final press tour before the game comes out next week. Over the past two days additional gameplay footage has been showing up all over the place, now including character creation (which contains no "geometric shapes" whatsoever by the way). Guess it wasn't that big of a secret after all. At Giant Bomb and GameSpot, Leonard Boyarsky and straight-talking narrative designer Nitai Poddar arrived to provide commentary. Giant Bomb's video consists of the game's first 70 minutes, while GameSpot's video offers a look at some new early game areas and includes a glimpse of the Halcyon system world map.


    Besides gameplay, Leonard and Nitai also showed up to talk about The Outer Worlds on IGN and Game Informer's weekly podcast shows.


    There were also interviews with Brian Heins and Charles Staples published over at Wccftech and Den of Geek, and it wouldn't surprise me if more videos showed up over the weekend too. We're told that reviews of The Outer Worlds will start coming out on October 22nd, so expect more theatrics.

    This is one of those games you pick up once the goty arrives, all the DLC is included, and they iron out the inevitable bugs. Shos some restraint and common sense people!

    Whether folk think it looks good or bad, I'll say this - it looks like it's been done a million times before. Stylistically it's just a homage to sci-fi in various media which we've all seen and interacted with time after time.

    Could end up being a cracking game regardless, but fuckinghell they need some creativity in their team. There's simply nothing fresh here.

    You are certainly not supposed to jump to a much worse game.
    Find some older game that is now fully patched that you didn't play.

    Tbh it looks like they stole the engine and space/scifi art assets from New Vegas / F3 and made their own game out of it...

    I've been saying this for months now. If we are of the same opinion, this is saying something.
