If anybody is willing to buy the game on a separate New Zealand account to experience it sooner, I'm willing to pay $20 to play it on that account (No activation as primary).

Well, I'm going to sleep now, and I'm excited and slightly scared about what I'm going to wake up to tomorrow, lol.

I expect that the review thread will pass 400 pages. Era, don't disappoint me.

If it averages anything less than 94 Metacritic it's obviously the insidious work of Druckmann, claiming another victim.

I'm genuinely not that fussed by the reviews for this, but I get the feeling it's going to be very Marmite rather than outright "10/10" everywhere.

i mean no review score will ever make me cancel my preorder
I dont have expectations about this game being good or bad, but I decided to pre-order (something I almost never do) because it looks interesting and fairly exquisite, so in a way I'm on that boat too.

I might hate it, but I'm definitely playing it

I sincerely want this game to review well and for people to enjoy it.

However, there is a dark part of my soul that would like to see something like a 73 MC score so I can witness all the meltdowns.

Personally I think it will review somewhere around 85-98.

Anyway, I''m not super interested in this game, but if it reviews really well I might jump in.

I very much expect a wide gap between reviews because people will be in one of two sides of a spectrum.
- The actual game isn’t the best
- This is art!

I knew this was gonna be divisive when I first saw a naked Norman Reedus hug a baby on a beach surrounded by dead fish.

While we still are slightly sane, I just want Kojima to go full Kojima--good, bad, or indifferent. AAA gaming seems so fucking boring these days and I want a reason to expect newness.

Review basically states that all the confusing/weird stuff in the trailer is explained and makes sense in the actual game, so that's good to know.

People sometimes say Kojima needs an editor. I say, fuck that. He is the only guy left in this industry who could make a game like this with such a budget.

I will savor every last drop of this because who knows what the future holds.

Cool. I've loved most kojima games and a game about solitude/walking/exploring sounds extremely up my alley, so basically any single reviewer liking it and praising those elements is enough for me to commit to preordering.

Interested to see what everybody else says tomorrow though

Yeah it's going to be pretty much what I've said a few pages ago, it's something unique. That's why reviewers are confused as hell and don't even know what to expect from other outlets. Some will love it, others will hate it.

I'd take a unique game over a safe game at this stage of the generation. We have plenty of plainly decent games.

My launch PlayStation broke last night, outer worlds was supposed to make the wait easier, now the wait for this is gonna be excruciating!

I have the DS PS4 pro preordered on amazon, so I guess I’ll just go ahead and let it ship. You guys think it’ll hold a decent value around this time next year? Looking into selling it around Ps5 launch.
