Working on Metro Exodus Review

15 February 2019 - 08:50 AM

Metro Exodus released today and for any wondering, I am working on a review for it. The thing is it might still be a bit before I have it ready and submitted for our review editors to go through. I know this was a very anticipated title, so I am starting this thread for people to ask questions. I will do my best to answer these questions, without spoilers.

Just a few quick notes before hitting the Post button though. I am playing it on my desktop, with my RX Vega 64, so I cannot answer any questions about RTX or DLSS. Also, until today I have been working with a pre-release version of the game, so I have not bothered to collect performance data. I also had some issues with trying to collect media (videos and screenshots) so I effectively have none of those to share either, but I may be able to get some and the issues might be better now that the day-one patch is in place. (It also might not be the game as much as the Windows 1809 update I allowed to install prior to starting the game.)

So, with that technical stuff stated, ask what questions you want and I'll answer what I can.


Also, here's are patch notes for today's patch, which conveniently also state changes from when the review codes were sent out: Patch Notes Summary.

Oninaki, New RPG from Tokyo RPG Factory Announced

14 February 2019 - 09:08 AM

Tokyo RPG Factory, the studio behind I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear, and Square Enix have announced the developer's third title, Oninaki. This game will continue to the developer's mission of taking inspiration from classical Japanese role-playing games as you enter a world as Kagachi, a Watcher. It is his duty to sever the bonds holding the Lost to this world, allowing them to continue the process of reincarnation.

Oninaki will release on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch this Summer, and below is the game's announcement trailer.
