Looking forward to playing this game for awhile. However it will be difficult to remain spoiler free, because with a new born and toddler I don't know when I'll get time to play, let alone buy it!

Love the pictures and the style of the text and infos. Just a tip: add it as text as well so it's searchable and can be copied. I think some infos like PC requirements would be cool, too :)

And yes, I'm SO excited for tomorrow! Hope everything work well with EGS...

I think I will have to revisit the overall design. I struggled along, as everything changed much like the FBC building.

I also forgot to mention the game takes inspiration from The House of Leaves.

Really interested to see how this game ends up reviewing. I am very cautiously optimistic.

I'm intrigued, but I've kind of sworn off EGS, skipping several games I would like to play there.

Nice artwork, really excited for this game.

But the I really miss critical info about the game in this OT, like release date, platforms, etc...

Amazon shipped my copy on Saturday. It should be in my mailbox when I get home. Really looking forward to playing it.

Just one question. Is there more than one difficulty level?

Best Buy just informed me my payment hadn't gone through, which is weird, 'cause I preordered months ago (turns out paypal = immediate, credit card = not immediate), so I'm worried I'll get this late.

Might be the most exciting game of 2019 for me unless Disco Elysium ships?

I can double check but I don't think so, I don't remember getting difficulty options

Nah I'm pretty sure there isn't, unless there's post game difficulty stuff unlocked.

I picked this up early because a local store broke the street date. I did an hour of it so far and I dig it. It essentially feels like Fringe with more paranormal/horror elements to it. I'll probably play more of it tonight after work.

It may be an easy Platinum but lack of changing/manually loading saves is a concern.

Picking up my copy on the way home from work tomorrow and have a week long staycation to play it.

I thought I would be more excited but my hype level is hovering in the moderate range.

At least early reports that it is short mean I might have time to catch up on PSVR titles and Gears 3 & 4 (maybe Judgement too).

Edit: The Waypoint podcast review has me more excited. Only a few hours before I can experience its weirdness for myself.

My copy arrived Saturday and I've been playing through. I don't know how far through I am, but I just got
level 5 clearance and am heading to Black Rock Quarry
. It's really fun. And I love the style of the game, its setting and its various mysteries are super cool.

Performance on base PS4 has been sketchy at times, though. Freezing for 5-10 seconds after every main story mission completes, and massive hits to framerate when in the middle of explosive fights. Sometimes the map doesn't want to load itself either, so you can only see text and not the rooms. Outside of those it's been fine.

Really hate these last minute review embargos though, What purpose do they serve and why are they in a publishers/developers interest if the title is good?

Man yea lol I find the map hitching and post mission hitching fine enough, very unobtrusive, but the fps can absolutely tank when the physics get going. My only real complaint with the game. Got it on saturday and just about an hour ahead of you hah starting the next area after that.
