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 :)

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (59 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Not sure why I quoted myself there. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: It can be overcome with time and a bit of diligence. You can build a tolerance and you probably played games that were a cert to fuck you up if you hadn't "VR legs" yet. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite @droezelke: Motion sickness, you mean. I get it too. I think most people get it to some extent. I get it from cars. Even used to get it from normal gaming with certain games. (1 Hour ago)
