The Outer Worlds (Gaming)

I’ve seen some of you playing this. How’s everyone like it so far?

I’m about ten hours in or so (currently exploring Roseway). I’m really enjoying it. It’s exactly what I’ve been itching for after the disappointment of Fallout 4.

The writing is kind of cheesy, but it’s charming and mostly works for me. The gameplay is pretty standard for the formula they’re using, but it feels good. I’m on normal right now, but I’m looking forward to maybe doing a run on a harder difficulty.

I really like the art direction. I thought I would miss having one massive open world, but having a bunch of smaller spaces (that often still feel pretty large) is actually a good choice, I think. It allows for some good exploration while still having a more directed experience.

I’m pretty impressed with the game overall so far. I hear it’s about 30 hours or so, so I might finish it up over the next few days.
