Virginia is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but if you haven't had the chance to try the demo yet, maybe it would be wise to take a quick look at some of the following videos. Developer Variable State designed a fully narrative experience in which gameplay mechanics are extremely limited. The emphasis is clearly on story and atmosphere, with a movie approach to the way the story is delivered. You go from one scene to another with no transition, making it difficult to understand what is going on at first, and the point of all this is to let the player connect all the dots together. The absence of dialogues is also justified by the desire to deliver a story differently than in most games. Being focused on narration only - even though there are some minor interactions with the world -, it does not take long to complete, about 2 hours, but it's still a journey worth taking if you like thrillers.
Note: Strangely enough, the developers say the game is best played at 30 fps, which would be fine if the frame-rate felt smooth at 30 on PC. You can of course choose to lock the frame-rate at 60, which makes it better overall, but it's still not perfectly smooth. We haven't seen the game on consoles, so we don't know if the 30 fps cap works better.
First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (7 Hours ago)
constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (7 Hours ago)
It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (7 Hours ago)
I've been looking for a great movie that's engaging from start to finish.Don't know which one you folks listed to start with though. (7 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (7 Hours ago)
