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.
But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (5 Hours ago)

@Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (6 Hours ago)
ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (6 Hours ago)
But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (6 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I watched it a 2nd time, Jesus Fuck! What happened to BioWare? And most important, what the fuck happened with QA in gaming? I swear QA is the least desirable job in the gaming industry (6 Hours ago)
