HIGH Top-notch creepy sound design.
LOW Resorting to online guides for obtuse item-puzzle clues.
WTF That police station dream.
I was playing the demo for Outlast 2 on the XB1, and I found myself amazed/frightened/disgusted by a few key moments in it. Then it occurred to me that I’d never attempted to make a video list – so why not try to share those moments with anyone who didn’t play the game? So, without any further ado, here’s the video!
HIGH Finally cutting loose and blasting a zombie to death with all my ammo.
LOW Any one of the five game-breaking bugs I encountered.
WTF Stranger: “Let’s fly this plague ship to a human planet!” My character: “Sounds like a great plan!”
You know that heavy, serious movie in your Netflix queue that you always mean to watch, but never turn on? You’re just never in the right mood to take on whatever subject matter it features, so instead you binge four episodes of Star Trek back-to-back that end up being twice as long as the serious movie?
Outlast is the videogame version of that serious movie for me.
