The first 10 minutes : Psychonauts demo

The first 10 minutes : Psychonauts demo

Finally! It's been a long time now since the last game from one of my favorite designers: Tim Schafer. Needless to say that it seems that the wait was worth it, as this demo delivers in almost every way possible: Excellent writing and humour, really good graphics and overall design and the most important part: Great gameplay! I just can't wait to play the full game now.

Yeah, the demo is great. It's funny but not like hee-hee-hee all the time, which is good. Under the surface it can be serious, too, and make you really care about the characters instead of just messing around with them. Or at least that's what I felt when playing it. ;)

I think Psychonauts is the game my Xbox games library has always needed. If the full version isn't somehow worse than the demo, this will probably become one of my all-time favourite games.

Damn, I can't resist, so I have to say this in advance: Tim Schafer, thank you! :D

I played the demo today, it was totally awesome.

I played Grim Fandango (one of my all time favorites games btw), so I knew that Tim Schafer could maken wonderful adventure games, but now he has proven that he can make awesome platform games too :)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I know hdr makes a difference. However, is it worth 1000+ euro's? (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (9 Hours ago)
