  1. I just went to panel, hacked it shut RAM down. No fight. That was a final boss?? LOL! Can't be.
  2. Got to the end of the game, though it came sooner than I thought. I think you always say that though when you enjoyed something a lot, you never want it to end. Loved that they copied Band of Brothers finale' style to close the game and all story/character loops in that fashion. From what I can tell I chose the best path, or at least what I hoping for as I made choices throughout the play-through. Still really enjoyed the whole experience, though very dissapointed in how poorly the developers treated the Ultra-Wide community. It's nice to see some devs, who probably play on Ultra-Wides themselves, ensure their game is fully ultra-wide supported throughout. I think those of us who game UW, take notice of those who do. I usually don't care, as dialog scenes are normally a small percentage of games so it's not a big deal, but a developer who knows dialog is a major percentage of the experience they are creating should have ensured that was set properly for all aspect ratios, as it does take you out of the game/experience a bit suddenly having large parts of just black on your screen. As I move on to other games though, it's something I regret wasn't properly implemented during the time I played the game. Still walk away happy though, great experience.
  3. We ever gunna find who is bringing these on board and why?
  4. Check Greenman gaming. Good chance you’ll get the best price there. You get a key you claim within the Epic Launcher.
  5. One thing I've been thinking of, even in seeing previews is what that this games wants to be. I'm having a blast in this game so there is no issue with fun factor or quality of work than has gone into game, dialog etc. But when I play I see a sky that's beautiful like in mass effect or some something, I look straight ahead and I see a world that sometimes borders on the cartoony-ism of Bordlerands, then all the architecture seems a mash up of Fallout and Bioshock. Even the characters seem to have bit of different games in them, but I DO really love facially quality...really top notch. Then some of the tiny spaceships you see on planets look straight out No Mans Sky in the design. Though mainly I see a lot of Fallout. And I get the whole story and connection to Fallout, but at times I feel it leans to heavily on that connection to the point of just about replication in some way. Maybe the plan was always to make a better Fallout and it was purposely meant to look like Fallout, but I don't think it needs to do that. Just my 2 cents, but I'd love to see developers stretch their legs for a possible OW2 and build something of their own. I'll still buy it if it's still mainly a Fallout-ish game, but I think if the really let themselves go they could make not just a better Fallout, a better Mass Effect, etc. Taking from the best of these games without being obvious about it . Probably thinking too deeply tonight...but with a bigger budget that hopefully OW's success may allow, I think we could only marvel at something unique they could come up with. This is of course hoping that even though there is success here, that a corporate bottom line doesn't get involved making the devs dilute quality to add transactions, loot boxes and all the manner of evil the current gaming corporate entities like to foister (inserted Dumb Donald word) on unsuspecting gaming enthusiast.
  6. I agree those that done feel it's too short. I'm also one that does all side quests, explores everything in maps to find hidden lot etc, so that adds to my time. I'm only about halfway through already and feels I've just about got my monies worth(except in terms of proper ultra-wide support). I guess it can be relative. Sure it's not as big as say Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption 2, etc, but those are games with unusual breadth with a major budget behind them, so that's not a fair comparison. Then you get these games as service cr@p games like Assassins Creed Odyssey. Great game(though sitting on top of a money generating scheme) but it was just WAY too large(for me). I've still never finished it. There were other factors that made the large world not work for, but just all goes the everything being relative.
  7. I would like more variety as well. It seems there a lot of the same armor, but with different paint on based on factions. I could see it maybe on the same planet, but would expect some differences going to other planets. What I thought about today while playing as a lot of the gear is same, just painted the same, I would be nice if they added some tools do create our own color scheme so that you could make them Unreliable brand armor. I'm only halfway through the game though, I think I saw a YouTube video where the title said something about unique armor you come across, maybe there will be something kick-butt later on in the game.
  8. You should just come across it naturally .What I mean is think the game has a good pacing in that you will run into ever better weapons as your progress as you need them. You probably just need to get farther in the game. Best yet, you will probably get it off someone you killed, so it will be free.
  9. GaleWeaver: I got the notification as soon as I was done talking to Ellie. I didn't try and leave the ship to see if she still showed up, though that is great idea I should have tried. I think I was most worried about not being able to finish her quest line, then figured something must be really wrong that I can't even see her on the ship now anywhere. Had never had a crew member go missing before. algoroth: Ah...that is interesting. I did continue playing with both access byzantium missions going now and was able to finish Parvati's questline. But I think I have that save where I can go try it again just to see if the issues replicates. Ok...just loaded that past save, went talked to Ellie about Bynantium, Phineas, Meeting her Parents and when the conversation ended held my breath. No failure notice. When looking for Parvati and she's in the engine room as normal. So maybe she wasn't on a ladder lol. Hope that's fixed in the upcoming patch they are talking about. Will mean replaying about an hour of the game, but think I'll continue from here as this is how I would have played before the bug. Thanks for the replies!
  10. So this is spoiler forum, but I'll still warn that if you are only beginning the game this post may not ruin things for you(though I just understand what happened). I'm at the point where I've exhausted ever quest except going to Phineas for the main quest and to get a dress for Parvati, which you can't do till find a way onto Byzantium. I ruined the game a bit form myself in googling to find out where it is so I could complete Parvati's questline and found there are two paths. The one path where you gotta pretend to want to turn in Phineas didn't appeal to me at all as I don't know enough of the story to screw around with subject, so I decided I would just let the game flow as it would have if I hadn't googled. Fair enough...all good. So I see Phineas, get access to Byzantium...good to go! As mentioned in another forum post about releationships, I could take or leave any other in game, but the one Parvati is good and really want to do right by her. I go into into kitchen on the ship and end up talking to Elli which sets up Byzantium and some discussion about whether to trust Phineas. End the convesration and just about to set off to get Parvati her dress. Then I get dialog that her quest line has FAILED. What the!!! So I go looking for Parvati on the ship and she nowhere to be found. She gone..who knows where. Then I remember this other way to get on Byzantium. Load a previous save(just after talking to Phineas) and decide to whip through that, and when landing on Byzantium(and having to go through the whole Elli Schpiel again) I ensure Parvati is there and ad her to my team so she doesn't 'disappear'. Go and talk to the person who wants me kill someone to get their trust(oh hell no), end it with basically I'll think about it(oh hell no do your own killin). Parvati there and can see the marker to her quest. Back on track but by following a very dirty story path to get there, which is not how usually play. At least on a first play through. If a game is good I may play through again being 'bad' for a new experience. But usually don't as games just grip me enough 99% of the time for a second play through. So my questions is...why does she disappear and the quest fail. Why does it matter which path I follow to get on Byzantium. Will going down slimy quest line cause issues down the road(don't need details). My intent was get the Phineas and still dig around to decide who to trust and really resent the game forcing me down path I hate just to keep a good character in the game. Sure...this post is part vent...but the what the heck! I've got these two diametrically opposed quest now. Can ignore the whole 'I want to turn in Phineas and sure I'll earn your trust by killing people' and follow my original path without issue? Don't want to google it an ruin things more, but if those that have played through could give me advice or assurances that I haven't screwed things by trying to keep Parvati from dying or whatever happened.
  11. The whole romance in games seems a bit off for me. I guess if want a sex scene in a game, the only way to it is on a Unicorn like the the Witcher 3 lol. Really though what does it for me in games in the continually growing of relationships with good characters, being a friends or potential romance. I think that's where a game can shine, and most don't really do it well. To have you almost feel good or bad to what happens to game character.....which is just 1 and 0's. I think Outer Worlds is only 'ok' with this, with one exception. Parvoti. I think it's her innocent view of the world and gee shucks attitude. It's not romantic at all, like a bigger brother or father daughter attitude. As for there being a romance with ADA, she's too hot for SAM. Not gunna happen.
  12. I love the atmospheric moments that are enhanced by music. It’s not something I’d ever play outside game, but I love the elevator jingle and hate when elevator ride is too slow. Think I’ve heard It before so may not be original, but it’s fun.
  13. Works for me. Just press CTRL and you go into crouch and stay that way till you press it again. Though you didn't mention the platform you're playing so can't say for controllers.
