48 positive reviews and a metacritic score of 86 is good enough for me .

It's getting mostly 8/10 and 9/10, at least the developer has tried something different and not just put out a fallout clone.
AnkerMan23/10/2019 15:08

The fact that this title appeared so early on game pass made me suspicious.


Obsidian Entertainment are owned by Microsoft and a part of Xbox Game Studios meaning it gets added to Game Pass day one. The upcoming Age of Empires, Battletoads, Bleeding Edge, Gears Tactics, Halo Infinite, Minecraft Dungeons, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Psychonauts 2 and Wasteland 3 we can look forward getting added day one on Game Pass.

The problem is, we have had all the special stuff over the years.....little left to offer, other than improvements in graphics and sound.

Have a read of the Metro, Destructoid and Gamespot reviews. After reading those I was really pumped for it. I take game reviews with a big pinch of salt though and make my own mind up, Days Gone and Red Dead being prime examples of reviewers rushing through to meet deadlines. Love Ghost Recon Breakpoint in coop and completely ignored the reviews on that one!

The fact that this title appeared so early on game pass made me suspicious. Upon further reading it appears that MS maje more money by doing this. I never use those aggregate sites for basing whether I buy a game or not. You don't get context from numbers.

Rushed reviews are the fault of the publisher and not the sites reviewing the game.
Great price for the hype it's getting.
downloaded it on gamepass ready for friday

looks excellent to me

love scifi and loved fallout3

Will be the first and last time you will see this IP on a Sony console.

Agree with you. It would have headed to Xbox exclusively but it was already agreed it was coming to PS4 before Microsoft bought the company. We may well not see sequels on the Sony platform which will be a real shame for that user base (especially with how good Obsidian are). Really looking forward to starting this at midnight on Thursday night via Game pass. Heat for the price on PS4, Friday is setting up to be a cracking day with this and Modern Warfare

They have come out and said they want to make The Outer Worlds 2 which will be exclusive to the Xbox ecosystem.
I have pre-ordered my Chinese takeaway for Friday

The weekend is sorted!

Put a w Infront of the username. Clearly can't read.
Got Gamepass for £1. Going to play this and Gears 5, my Xbox One is pretty surprised at being dusted off and turned on.
*Laughs in Gamepass*

Also despite the excellent reviews I can see this game dropping a decent amount after release - no point pre-ordering games in this day and age.

Why
Use the new zealand trick and you can play it 12am tomorrow
Damn, I'm on PS4 and a bit envious of the Xbox bunch for once - being able to play this as part of Gamepass is fantastic. With my current gaming backlog I think I'll wait for the price to drop.

Name something, that has not in a one way or another already been used in a computer / video game!
As much as i'm looking forward to this, I can't help but think this is one of those games that will drop in price fairly quickly.

I don't have to

There's still plenty of room for originality especially with today's technology but originality died when profits became more of a priority

Especially with Movies *cough* Disney

Obsidian did KOTOR & THE SITH LORDS two brilliant games from the early 2000's,so this will be very good if not great.People already streaming it on twitch if your not sure of buying it yet...HEAT from me.

Console Games? Not really

Hmmm for starters Keyboards and Mouses allow way more potential, a lot of games what are on PC won't work with a controller
Second not being limited by a weak console allow developers to do what they image without being limited by poor dated hardware

The amount of games on PC compared to console is massive

Either due to the game just won't work on consoles either controls or power or because getting a game on console and doing update is miles harder

Look at Payday 2 on console compared to PC
Apparently that's due to Microsoft and PS4 taking too long to approve updates


Oh almost forgot consoles not having player run servers is a massive downside, look at Minecraft, look at Garry's Mod (that game definitely won't be possible on Console) lol

What do you consider original? A whole new genre? A New IP instead sequel? Also since when are we talking? Original games in the last year? 5years? Decade?

I've played plenty of games what feel fresh but they of course may have got idea from another.. since you know because it's got say shooting it doesn't mean it can't be unique lol

Shooting games are not original... We have little more than improvements left.

What about House Flipper, Viscera Cleanup, House Party

I don't know any other game where you can renovate a house and sell (House Flipper)
Spend Hours mopping up blood and picking up parts (VC)
And.. yeah not gonna talk about the last one here

Well I guess you could say they fit in the simulation category but if you want a new Genre and Category than not really probably gonna be.much apart from VR

But they're something special/unique


The reason why the music and film industry sucks is not because it's not because making something original is hard it's because music industry is full of talentless fools whilst movies are controlled by Monopolies
It's seen as a risk to try new ideas
It's not like we ran out of stories to tell, discovered every combination of sound, etc
