Man all kinds of occult and demonic crap in this one. From the first minute and even the title screen. Saying that this transcends playing the video game and the player is transferred into the protagonist and all that. Big yikes lol
Im shocked this didnt get an M rating. Full of blood, demonic stuff, sex, depravity, etc. I'd be terrified playing this as a kid from how sinister it is. I kind of am, even as an adult.
David Cage is one helluva weirdo.
I youtube'd just for David Bowie's speech since all the hub-bub about Omikron and the new variant name Omicron... https://youtu.be/uzbKjSgvcdw
and now Im about half way through - heavily reliant on tutorials since a lot of the conditional things you have to do to progress have not been intuitive to me.
I was following a Youtube walkthrough until it became apparent the guy didnt know what he was doing for large sections of it.
Text walkthrough much better and even then some confusion haha.
I have to emulate this one: the controls are absolutely horrid, but re-mapping buttons like Dpad to Joystick for movement alleviates it partially and save states for emu. As the save system is utter garbage. Also, was nice to hold onto Kay'l as long as possible before being forced to switch to another character. Not really a fan of being forced to change protagonist, despite having the same 'soul' even it being the concept of the game. Eh.
My critiques - Jank. The FPS and brawler aspects are not well done, like at all, but there's something very atmospheric and esoteric about this one and it's an interesting concept to throw so many different genres together. If they actually re-did this game and made the FPS and fighting mechanics somewhat decent, and the game more intuitive, they might have a cult hit on their hands that doesnt have glaring flaws.
Part of me doesnt want to continue out of fatigue, part of me wants to see what happens for the second half but 'first hand' without watching videos of it.
I watched where David Bowie sings at a club early on in a walk through video, and didnt get there myself and seem to have progressed way past that since im half way through - how do I get the game to show me that?
The intro with Kay'l's apartment, seeing the city, and the Security HQ was so compelling.
anyways this wasn't supposed to be a stream of consciousness so much as open the door to the topic of this game. Discuss!
