    Disco Elysium - Planescape meets OG Fallout meets Sam & Max

    So this game really is quite something.

    Three hours in and it’s already given me one Einstürzende Neubauten Easter egg.



    Gameplay is a mix of classic Obsidian RPGs mixed with Lucasarts point-and-click mixed with 2d6 tabletop.

    Storyline draws a bit from Planescape Torment with an amnesiac protagonist. Solve a murder, find out who you are, do as many (or as few) drugs as you can, get stat penalties because your character thinks everyone is a reactionary neomonarchist racial supremacist. Sing karaoke about it.

    10/10, would pay full price again.

    The Epic Store is amazing, I've been able to save so much money by not buying their games.

    It's apparently very very very good (reputable reviewers have gone so far as to call it the best written rpg, period) and it's now sitting at the top of my backlog.

    It’s literally a dark-comedy point-and-click adventure game about a pair of freelance police officers, one of whom is just this side of batshit.

    Soz but the absolute worst thing about how people describe games is "X MEETS Y!!!!" or "IT'S A CROSS BETWEEN FALLOUT AND HURRRLOOOO"

    It really does a disservice to games that are doing something new and you see it constantly.

    Time to drop it


    Poland treats me like shit and I hate them as a result of it

    I don’t know that this game is doing anything new.

    It’s doing a lot of things that have been done before, and doing them really well.

    I don’t know that it could have been written the same way and been quite as good/topical if this game had come out 20 years ago, but in technical and mechanical terms, this game could have been made back then.

    I chose the titles I did because it uses mechanics and themes from all of them. Amnesiac-protagonist post-apocalyptic buddy-cop black-comedy-adventure rpg.

    Yeah, just do the usual FHC thing and say it's shit and gloss over literally every detail because you decided it's shit, much better.
