It's definitely one I want to pick up at some point this year.  Strangely I've never seen a pre-order listing for it on the UK PSN so I'm not even sure what the launch price is.

 

No pre-order page here either. It'll go up when it launches. The price is £34.99/$39.99.

That may make it harder to resist (I can't imagine it being much cheaper at any point later in the year... though I can imagine it coming to Game Pass once it rolls out on the Series X). Gone 8am and it's still not on the UK PSN (*edit* apparently we have to wait until 6pm. Very odd way to launch a game these days).

Are lack of pre-orders and pre-installs becoming more common these days, or is this an odd exception?


Odd exception. This is a smaller release with a truncated schedule. They’ve been saying “March” for awhile but didn’t pin down the exact date until what? A week and a half ago, I think?

It's £26.39 here. I've a little more in my PSN wallet than I thought, so I'll sit back and see what's in the Sale tomorrow. Hopefully I'll find something that appeals there and still have funds left over for this, though I'm still not sure when I'll fit it in amongst my backlog schedule (I pretty much know what games I'm going to be playing between now and mid June).

I only got to play for about two hours but I'm in love. The writing and atmosphere is incredible so far. This is a purely text/conversation driven game. I don't even know if there is "combat" in this with the way its structured and I /love/ the perks system and how it plays out in conversation. One early perk check was my trying to flash a look at a young woman I was talking to to let her know I wanted her. The failure led to an amazing exchange between the two that got a real laugh out of me. I don't know if "succeeding" would have gave me a better option there.

Nothing in the PSN Sale appealed so I've grabbed this for it to sit on the SSD until.... I don't know when (Xbox owners can thank me when it hits Game Pass :) ). I've seen some talk of the PS5 version being pretty buggy (missing voices where there's voices on PC, choppy frame rate, some control, interaction and other performance bugs...etc) so I may benefit from waiting for a patch or two anyway, which I've faith will come as the developers were apparently very supportive of the original PC release. 

 

Fun to see an example of the PS5's file size improvements (it's over 1GB smaller than the PS4 download).

Already hard at work:

Patch 1.2 hit about two days ago. There are still reports of a number of bugs and issues and I want this to be a damned clean experience so I've put the breaks on my playthrough. The developers have already announced 1.3 and it will have even more fixes so I'll assess again post 1.3. I have plenty to play in the meantime and I've waited this long....In the interim some music:

The good news is that the delayed nature of the physical release means that we should see the fully patched game on the disc when it does finally release. That is, of course highly dependent on when they are scheduled to start pressing those discs but I do hope that is the case.
