A game that is all about exploring a hostile open world with nothing but your brain and a gun. As you progress you get upgrades, new tools, and items, and the game really opens up. But I am fast-forwarding the hard steep climb to a great game. The controls are clunky even if you can rebind them yourself, The game has a manual but it’s not always ideal when you are learning so much new stuff. I hated the game for a while as I struggled with everything. At some point, the game just popped and from then on it got better and better, as I explored I found new items or puzzles which then opened up another area, I loved how I could literally do as I wanted. Overall the game starts off really rough but soon opens up to one of the dev’s best work and a really good experience.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
