  1. I played the original POE on XB1 and enjoyed it overall. I didn't like the real-time combat. I have heard that POE2 is a better game in nearly every respect and does include the option to play with turn-based combat. I really like the sound of that. I am a little hesitant to buy based on what I have heard about the XB1 and PS4 versions. I've heard about long load times, but I have a Samsung SSD, so I'm not worried about that. However, I've heard several people complaining about crashing issues, which does concern me. How bad/frequent is the crashing, particularly on XB1? I want to buy POE2, but I want to know if I should wait or buy now. Thanks in advance for any feedback I get.
  2. Glad to see I'm not the only one affected by this. Hopefully, Obsidian will help us with this.
  3. Let me start by saying that I am loving TOW so far and this is by no means a deal breaker for me. Having said that, it is driving me CRAZY that every time I talk to someone I pull out my currently equipped weapon and shove it in their face every single time I press the interact button (X on Xbox). This is driving me absolutely CRAZY! PLEASE, Obsidian, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, PLEASE fix this immersion breaking oversight! The fix is so simple! Please just give us the option of having to hold the interact/reload button to holster/un-holster instead of just tapping it. That would fix the problem COMPLETELY! Thanks in advance!
  4. Nevermind. I just read my answer in a review. Yes, there is manual save AND auto-save.
  5. https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/the-outer-worlds/critic-reviews So far, TOW has an 86% metascore, which is outstanding considering it's an old-school RPG with a limited budget and it's not a sequel of an existing IP. For reference, Fallout: New Vegas had a metascore of 84%. TOW is turning out better than I had hoped. My body is ready. The hype is real.
  6. I've started replaying Red Dead Redemption's single-player. I never finished it. It's a crazy long game, but a good one. I've also been playing the recent console release for Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. Love me some old school RPGs.
  7. Pre-loads are also available on console. I have TOW on my HDD right now. It's mocking me in My Games and Apps. Its tile is staring at me, with all the malevolence of a demon cackling with maniacal amusement.
  8. As of this post, only 4 Days, 13 Hours, 54 Minutes left! Been watching the launch trailer non-stop. I NEED THIS GAME!
  9. I can appreciate the OP's distaste with a lack of 4K support on the PS4 Pro. However, thus is the nature of the industry. MS now owns Obsidian. I remember not so long ago when it was announced that only the PS4 would receive the Survival Mode for Spec Ops in the upcoming COD Modern Warfare. There was a lot of backlash to that decision. But that was the deal Activision made with Sony.
  10. Now, as of this post, only 10 Days, 3 Hours, 11 Minutes left! Really? 10 days until release and no hype on these forums?!?
  11. As for lack of marketing, I would agree if they were going for a different audience. I think they're going for fans of Obsidian RPGs, and I think all of those are aware of TOW. As for releasing on the same day as COD, so what? Completely different games with completely different target audiences.
  12. Yeah, I'll be buying the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate I and II on Tuesday.
  13. As of this post, we only have to wait another 21 Days, 5 Hours, and 25 Minutes. The hype is real.
  14. I just noticed that on the Xbox Game Store, TOW is listed as being released on October 24 at 8PM Eastern. I've also noticed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is also being released early, also on October 24 but instead at 10PM Eastern. Is this a new trend for digital releases? Or is this because they're both a Friday release? Or is this just a ****up on Microsoft's part?
  15. Definitely counting the days until October 25. I usually take off for one big game release every year, and The Outer Worlds is my pick this year.
  16. In an effort to stave off some of my hype hysteria for TOW, I just restarted FNV and am replaying it for the first time since it was released nearly 10 years ago. Anyone else following suit? If not, what are you playing in the meantime?
  17. I'm not a fan of how the player actually played TOW in the TGS footage, but I did like what I saw, overall. October 25 can't get here soon enough.
  18. Couldn't agree more. I've always liked the Sith over the Jedi in SW. If you really analyze it, the Jedi were closed-minded arrogant pricks that had a hierarchy fetish that worshipped the state. The Sith embraced passion, creativity, freedom, and individuality. Did those qualities lead to bad outcomes? Sure, but the Jedi weren't any better. The Jedi were hypocrites that chose to hide the fact that a full-blown Sith lord was able to manipulate them and the whole damn Republic without them noticing. Okay, I'm done with my rant.
  19. I pre-ordered TOW as soon as I was able to. I have enough faith in Obsidian as a developer and have seen enough gameplay footage of TOW that I was comfortable pre-ordering. I RARELY pre-order anything. I only ever pre-order if I am VERY confident that I will enjoy a product. I have that confidence with TOW.
  20. I too am a bit concerned by this. Hopefully this changes before release.
  21. I actually love the color palette and saturation in TOW. One of several things that drew me to it.
