    I thought PAX West might be the last time we see The Outer Worlds in action before its release, but it turns out there were still a few gaming events left to promote it at. This weekend Obsidian took the game to Japan for the annual Tokyo Game Show convention. Most of the gameplay reels that have come out of that are using a localized version, but there were two Western outlets in attendance who played the game in English - Gamereactor and VGC. Only VGC uploaded their footage to YouTube, so that's what I'll post here. It's 40 minutes of gameplay from one of the game's early areas, specifically the point where the player character first finds his ship, The Unreliable. Heading over to the nearby town of Edgewater to find a new power regulator for the ship, the player becomes involved in a dispute between the mayor and a group of deserters who have occupied a botanical garden in the adjacent wilderness.


    The game looks pretty much final now, some janky enemy AI aside. Even though it's not an open world game per se, the areas look nice and spacious. Too bad we don't get to see the end of that quest, though.

    Not a good sign, this close to release and in an official demo to be this buggy mess and unpolished.

    It's clear how mediocre and outdated this game is going to be, so the real question is - will it even be worth playing?

    They tried so hard to make a game like Fallout New Vegas that they ended up making a game that seems to be using Bethesda's buggy engine. That's real dedication.

    About loading times, remember this video is from the PS4. The "sliding" it's just the shitty controller movement. But yeah, it's definitely a bit janky.

    Makes you wonder if with NV it was just the engine or simply Obsidian's incompetence.

    Show Spoiler
    It was both.

    My personal favorite moments are around 7:20 when the player hears someone talking to him and expertly looks everywhere except the right direction, then walks past the supposedly impossible to miss NPC in front of the town gates, then around 19:30 where they're whispering and sneaking so they won't alert the marauder, after exploding every single mine in the minefield 10 meters away.
