GSY Video PC

Someday You'll Return is a strange mix of many types of games. It's hard not to see the Walking Simulator in it, especially in the beginning when it's pretty straight forward despite the illusion of an open environment, but the game also features adventure elements with puzzle solving you don't often find in Walking Sims. There are also scripted sequences that lean more on the action side, when the main character has to flee for example, but there is also a stealth element added to the numerous gameplay mechanics at some point. We're not going to lie, sneaking around while deadly creatures are lurking is not a lot of fun, it's actually more frustrating than scary, but there are parts of the game that work well. Being able to prepare potions gives it a sort of Kingdom Come: Deliverance vibe, rock climbing is a gimmick but it feels a bit fresh in such a title. The visuals look pretty nice too, which is nice in game where exploration is so important, but in the end it's a shame that the story isn't really that captivating. Voice acting is not the best so it may be why we didn't truly feel as committed as we should have. Last but not least, the game suffers from a few technical issues (the controller buttons don't show even when playing with a gamepad, framerate takes a hit from time to time, the game doesn't seem to save the resolution when you quit and launch it again, etc.). A mixed bag is what it is really, but some will certainly enjoy it anyway.

You mean the stream or the  video file itself? Odd it worked here. 
Edit: ok even the YT version is broken, it's just great...

    MrWhite And if you know your history, that spilled over into America too. "Hill Billies" didn't get that name by accident. There's a very specific reasoning for it. (15 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @jmd749: Yeah. Happened in my country too. Only they used religion and fealty to the monarchy of England as the divider instead of skin colour. Property ownership and jobs were the bribe. (15 Hours ago)

  • jmd749

    jmd749 is not unique to Trump, neither is it new. It's been happening from the days of Jim crow where poor whites were given the illusion of inclusion. The age old divide and conquer play book. (22 Hours ago)

  • jmd749

    jmd749 Yes, agreed. Had they been anything but white nationals they'd have been slaughtered. Chappelle said it best [url] This manipulation of poor white US nationals... (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If you storm a building like that and call it a revolution, you better be prepared to die. They clearly weren't or hadn't any clue of what a revolution entails. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @gigantor21: I found her to be a bit endearing in how naive she was. The police and guards in that building had the power to literally open up and slaughter the lot of them. (1 Day ago)

  • gigantor21

    gigantor21 @MrWhite: That one lady whining about getting maced even though "it's a revolution" was the patron saint of the insurrectionists: entitled, weak and stupid. (1 Day ago)
