As you already know if you've taken the time to read our full review, watch our commented gameplay video, or even just listen to the mp3 version to avoid any spoilers, SOMA is really one of our most favorite games in the past few months. It's a very atmospheric title whose main theme is just excellent and it is undeniably Frictional Games' best game to date. We just got our hands on the PS4 version so here are a few videos for you to see how it runs. Aside from some quite surprising slowdowns in the very beginning, the game seems to run at 30 fps most of the time, even in the underwater sections which are a bit more open than the corridors of Pathos II. What is a bit annoying though are the freezes you get every time you reach a checkpoint, giving you the impression that you're playing Half Life² and waiting for the next area to load.
I find the direction that military shooters go with a sci-fi setting is a bit boring. Not really into mech stuff. But they could do something a more "punk" sci-fi. (3 minutes ago)
I want futuristic BF. The last BF4 DLC has a lot of BF2142 hints. (15 minutes ago)
but that runs the risk of it feeling too much like battlefront maybe? but at least it would be their own world and creations. (24 minutes ago)
i'm kinda hoping for something more futuristic. something a bit more creative. mechs instead of tanks, hover bikes, jet packs etc. (25 minutes ago)
@b0vril: my worry with modern is that it could feel too similar to BF3/4. i mean i want whatever they do to feel like those games but i would like something to separate them thematically at least. (29 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: should they go back to a more modern era, or does that matter? (40 minutes ago)
