    I'm a bit surprised he didn't mention how the game constantly throws ready-to-use food packets and water bottles at you like free candy. At least Subnautica made you work for it a little. Kinda blunts the whole "survival" aspect of the game when you're constantly throwing food and water away, or leaving it where you found it, because you neither need it nor have anywhere left to put it. The hunger and thirst bars are more or less just for show, since they made damn sure you'd never run out of either.

    • General Rubbish

      General Rubbish

      Сарын өмнө

      @Hitchslapped It wouldn't be that hard to make it work, I'd think, if only they made food and water more scarce. Made them an actual limited resource you have to work to acquire. Those ice deposits in the asteroids were a good idea, if only you actually had a reason to harvest them. Remove the free-floating ice (or at least drastically reduce its abundance), maybe make the ice deposits only spawn in certain places so you're not literally tripping over them all the time, and of course, stop fucking placing free food and water in every single piece of debris. As for food, there may not be any animals to hunt like in Subnautica, but I still think they could've made the acquisition of food more interesting by, say, only placing those food packets or frozen food ingredients in specific storage or kitchen modules that you'd actually have to look for, similarly to how paint can only be found in tanks near paint spills.

    • Hitchslapped


      Сарын өмнө

      Yeah, they could've scrapped that mechanic entirely. Right from the start you have plenty of food and you can find ice and food ingredients everywhere. They felt they needed to implemented hunger and thirst because it's a "survival" game but didn't have the slightest idea how to make it work.

    In Subnautica, your tools never break but you have to supply them with energy from batteries. Each tool needs its own battery and you can charge them at your base. This kind of system is *infinitely* better than a durability system in which your tools vanishes into the fucking ether. And you have to go make new ones because they can’t even last a *day.*

      It's like a hamster wheel that dispenses treats when you run in it. Remove the reward, and it's all meaningless work, but remove the work and the reward no longer feels good because you did nothing to achieve it. Get the right balance of work and reward, though, and you trick the human brain into dispensing the happy juice. Simple as that. I honestly don't care that I'm only being tricked into thinking I'm doing something meaningful, as long as the happy juice gets dispensed, it's all fine with me.

      Seems Yahtzee actually liked the game at first, and so did I. The problem is that it only goes downhill after the first area of the game, when the gameplay shifts from open world sandbox to linear series of corridors, and the sarcastic self-referential humor starts to get stale. Not to mention that the story was almost nonexistent in the first part of the game, which turns out to be a good thing because it's pretty abysmal and having it all crammed into the later linear sections doesn't make it any more palatable.

      It's herd mentality. I refunded it after one hour when I realized that it's exactly like every other survival/crafting game out there. It's polished and content-filled in early access, which is a breath of fresh air, but is it better/different than any of the existing games in the genre? Not in the least. There are dozens like it, it just seems to be the flavor of the moment.

      I think it would've worked if the game was shorter, of if the humor was dispensed more sparingly, but as it currently is, it just feels like a stand-up routine that goes on for way too long. I can picture it so vividly - the awkward tension in the room, the droplets of sweat on the comedian's forehead as the audience laughs less and less enthusiastically, the desperate attempts to continue the show by rehashing the same old material hoping to get at least one more genuine chuckle out of the crowd before calling it a night, everything. Except I was the only audience, and the comedian wasn't allowed to pack it up and go home until I finished the game.
