The game is great but controls are roughhhhh on PS5. And the loading times are long for a PS5 game. Guess it doesn’t use the SSD at all. Also text size even at the largest setting is too small. Hope they patch all this stuff

Sleep mode on ps4 seems to mess up the game. Object interaction is unresponsive at times.

My first time playing. Very promising after couple of hours despite of the bugs.

Oh and extra respect for having some quality Finnish cursing in the game!

In addition... The game pretty much shits on every political ideology and then some.

if you think this game shits on every political ideology in the same way you are not paying attention. it's obviously pro communism. not that there is anything wrong with it.

So. I'm in the room after the "prologue" as it were, on PS5. I'm unable to interact with anything. There are those green circles, sure, but I'm not able to do anything with them. If I go to the bathroom, there's like a rotating thing around my head, but again, as far as I can tell I can't interact with anything.

Little help here. Is my game just bugged or am I supposed to be able to do something here? I've heard a ton of good things about this game, and have been very intrigued. But as it is, I don't know what I'm supposed to do, and I do have a feeling I should be able to interact with those green circles.

Also I'm unable to leave the room I'm in. I suppose if this is a "hangover from hell" simulator it does a pretty decent job at it, but I was looking for an actual game.

You should hit X or R1 on the green circles to interact. You might have to hit them a few times. Devs are aware and are patching it up so interaction is a lot smoother.

Seriously, I've been mashing X like my life depends on it, but no avail. Absolutely nothing happens.

Oh wow. So if I'm outside the bathroom, near the desk with two action prompts, I can actually get the bathroom prompt to turn to an X. Of course if I move any closer to the bathroom, the prompt reverts to a green circle.

This is literally unplayable. That word gets tossed around too often, but in this case, it literally is.

Highlight so you get an X, press X. Sometimes twice in my particular experience. If you move your character it automatically disengages the highlight.

Also, move the right stick towards your object of desire otherwise you will just cycle through all highlights available on screen

That's the thing, I'm unable to get any prompt for X near me. I have tried, for quite a while.

Oh well, I filed a bug report with them. Which wasn't possible via their web page, because it was completely broken and the link didn't work. But was able to dig into the raw HTML and where the link was supposed to go, so I could open that (Google Docs, seriously?) link. But as far as first impressions go, this hasn't exactly been the best.

Roughly ten minutes into the game on PS5, I spoke to the lady outside the apartment , go through the motions and as she stops in her doorway...the whole conversation we just had in its entirety starts playing back to me. That’s when my controller buttons ceased to work. At that point, I just powered it off. I’ll wait for the next patch thank you very much.

What is this? Ign scored this game a 10 and it sounds like it's unplayable on ps4 AND ps5. I'm waiting for their score of 4 review for the console version of the game.

Sony please remove from the store until it's fixed. You are for the gamers do it

I’m having similar experiences with this game. Getting frustrated. Will move on to another game soon if this continues. Life is too short.

It plays like shit on PS5 right now but there's supposed to be a patch coming to address the issues very soon. My issue when I attempted to play it was that I'd walk around the room and the 'X' prompts for items and interactions in the room either wouldn't show up at all, or would and then would be very finnicky and I'd have to keep moving my character/the controller stick around to get the X prompts to show up. To me that is completely unplayable. The patch though is supposed to address that (and more).

Patches like this always confuse me. Did they not test at all and just assumed it would play fine? I don’t recommend waiting to hear a flood of complaints then just say a patch is coming.

Seems like every review out that gives it a 10, or a really high score was reviewed on pc. Did anyone review the PS5 version? I cant imagine it getting all these super scores if the PS5 version has these issues right now.

Waiting for more details after this next patch before i possibly buy the PS5 version

What is the fucking point of autosave if it never bothers to actually autosave? I just lost over an hour of progress because the game locked up and apparently never autosaved once. It's a real bitch to lose progress in this too because you have so many little conversations it's impossible to recreate them again exactly.

This game's been great so far, really well written. I absolutely love how it pushes you to do stupid shit but also how rewarding it is to get a successful roll.

This game is so weird! In a good way. :messenger_grinning:

Some of the dialog options seem so out of place and meaningless that you just have to choose them only to find out they have quite a lot of impact.
I also get lost in this world constantly. Although there is always something to go after i really struggle to keep my focus on what matters and just venture of and click on everything.
Feels overwhelming at times.

Am I just missing something or am I experiencing yet another bug? I am on Wednesday trying to interact with the sunken
car, and I appear to be in an endless loop that never lets me actually see what is in the car. After going to the swing set and waiting hours/realizing it is my car, the tide goes in the game tells me to check inside for personal items, and when I do it just gives me the exact same initial prompt to investigate the car in the first place. My only option is to again sit on the swing set, reading the exact same dialog, waiting hours, only to be told to wait for the tide to go in so I can investigate the car... which repeats the entire swing set part again. It even keeps popping up a quest update every single time I do this, despite the fact it is sitting in my quest log as complete.

I have already had the game lock up twice on me, this port is unusually dedicated to ruining an absolutely stellar game.

I'm really enjoying the game but I've decided I'm not going to persevere with it until a patch is released. I could overlook the occasional crash, dialogue not playing etc. But there is a significant part of the game that is completely bugged, preventing me from completing an interaction and getting an important quest item. Without spoilers, this involves the crashed car in the ice. The having to double select to successfully interact is a pain in the arse as well but isn't literally preventing me from progressing.

I started this and I am not sure how I feel about it. I’ve gotten so use to action based games lately. It feels like a lot of psycho babble. I’m not sure on my objective, they just keep adding up. I just had this long conversation about race and shut it off. I don’t get why this got a 10/10 from IGN. I literally had to skip a bunch of discussions with NPCs. I might go back after I look at a guide, but honestly it feels tiring after a while. I haven’t even found the body yet. It felt like it was going to get real good and then it just lost me.

Anyone got a tipp how to get the contrast and brightness setting right to make the game look punchy. It kinda looks washed out in places. I'm on Xf9005 here.

Conversations are an integral part of the game.

Overall it is a love letter to language. With the newly added voice over and the introduction of dialects and accents it is even more obvious that it tries to be as eloquent as possible without overwhelming the player.
In contrast to all of this are the unbelievable stupid dialog options that are provided from time to time throughout the game. Pretty much everything in this game plays out in conversations.
It is like actively playing a book.

You should not look at the "quests" in a traditional way and do all of them one by one.

Don't forget that it is a role playing game. If you are not interested in a discussion about politics in real life for example then why should you force yourself through this in the game? Back out of it. That is just fine.
Maybe you miss something or maybe not. That is part of the experience.

It got good scores because it is written quite well. Way above average.

It has its ups and downs but that is more a subjective matter of a person's interest.

I got it on steam and neared the 2 hours mark so decided to do a refund. 2 hours of a very strange dialogues, not sure I would survive till the end.

Thanks. That’s a very intelligent response. It is more like a game through the text than the gameplay. It just didn’t click with me when it became an integral part of the game. I’m also not a very political person. That’s just who I am.
I did appreciate it for what it was doing, but it’s just not for me.

I got mine on Stadia and they went ahead and refunded me. Oh well, I’ve got other games to play.
