>observer_ is clearly another game to keep an eye on if you're into story-driven titles. Although we haven't played more than an hour and a half, we can say it's a pretty intense experience, the work on the atmosphere being really impressive. Sound design and voice acting are top notch, with Rutger Hauer playing the role of the main character, and the game world is both intriguing and spooky. After Layers of Fear, the Blooper Team seems to confirm their talent, with added gameplay mechanics to make the player more involved. Indeed, some sequences require to fully explore the environment looking for clues, while others allow to choose what Daniel Lazarski (the protagonist) will say to the NPCs he will meet.

buying this once it hits PSN tomorrow. hated layers of fear. thought it was shit and completely tame in the fear department (ironic given it's title) so i wasn't particularly optimistic about their next game. but this looks really good. if this can pull me into it's world and story the way soma did, i'll be more than happy. i hear it's a decent length too. 9-10 hours.

I've been interested on this game ever since te first trailer at the E3's PC Gaming Show last year. Looks so great and feels like a kind of Blade Runner-esque game. This feels very grim, dark and oppresive.

finally hit PSN. £7 more expensive than the PC version. £6 more expensive than the xbox version. and if you have PS+ the game is STILL £3 more expensive than the xbox version. apparently playstation tax is a thing.

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @rayy: I'm not talking about the cutscene bits. I'm talking about the part with the HUD. Look at it again: it's fake. (0 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX When does DICE fake trailers? (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: There is a scripted bit of combat that is totally using gameplay animations. And a lot of cutscene mixed in. It's not pre-rendered it's Frostbite. (1 minute ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @droezelke: nobody is saying is gameplay. We are saying is a scripted cutscene with ingame graphics. (1 minute ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke I know you are a big fan, but so am I, but I can still see the difference between fake and actual gameplay. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: Uh.. that's a cutscene. The animations are.. animated and stuff. That doesn't require CGI. (2 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the trailer sort of kills the immersion when he's using a mounted gun as a machine gun though? (2 minutes ago)
