Finished this game today. Really liked it but it had its issues. 

 

The dialogue and character writing is superb. Easily the best part of the game, second only to the art and cinematography. Lots of thought went into it.  The amount of dialogue in this game in INSANE. The characters just dont shut up LOL. 

But gotta say chatting with the charcters on the ship was my favourite part of the game. Managed to scratch that Mass Effect itch.

I liked the 'new' characters like Ko-Rel, Nikki and the Dog. 

I think I like this games version of Gamora and..

 

Spoiler

..Mantis way more than the movie versions.

Mantis in particular was absolutely hilarous. That whole chapter where she's trying to figure out which timeline is going on had me laughing throughout.  

 

The weaker part of the game is the combat. I just didn't enjoy it. The concept seems really cool, but in execution it was just lacking in polish. (Maybe I'm feeling it much more becasue before this I was playing God Of War?). Star-Lord's pew pew guns feel horrible. Very unsatisfying,

 

In a lot of the cinematic shots the hits don't even land properly. Felt like an afterthought. The controls are a mess on keyboard. Giving your teammates commands is pretty cool though. I enjoyed that part. 

 

The puzzles were nice but very easy. They should aim for more complicated stuff. Timing based with all characters involved would be cool. 

 

I experienced a fair bit of technical issues.

- Controller didnt' work.

- On some days my game would freeze every 30 mins or so and I had to force quit and restart. On some days it was fine.

- A lot of times during combat my actions wouldn't register correctly, like that reload mechanic kept missing even though I was doing it right. Same with the double click to fire the stagger shot. Felt like it was just wasn't registering.

- During one of the cutscenes in the middle of the game, every characters eyes started blinking like crazy. o_o 

 

Overall I liked enough. Not my GOTY, but still a really good game that punches way above its weight and deserves to be played for its writing and art.

It's not just because of GoW. The combat is indeed weak and shallow.

It single-handedly made the game a chore to finish towards the end.

Just finished this game and considering how little the game is talked about it was way better than I expected. The writing, voice acting are brilliant. The combat was mediocre so I just put it on easy mode and just enjoyed the ride. I really hope they do a sequel, I like all these characters way better than the movie counterparts. Also the game had a surprising amount of heart

Spoiler

rockets backstory of why he hates getting wet, groots tragic backstory, the mind palace level with Drax were very heart wrenching. Only Peter and Gamora's backstory I thought weren't great. Gamora's especially feels like it comes out of the blue.


However I can't believe how refreshing it was to see them do away with the romance track between Quill and Gamora that I feel was consistently the worst part of the movies. I liked that everyone was an equal part of the team.

I am playing this on Win11 whatever the latest update is, the Gamepass version, and Xbox Series X controller works now using bluetooth also, I have set to "exclusive fullscreen"( default for gamepass and windows store games is windowed mode but borderless, idk why is it so ) in the little settings menu that comes up before the actual game is launched.

Finally tomorrow i'll have some actual variety aside from playing only Elden Ring since last 2-3 weeks :lol:

I have not faced any issues.

Only big problem is they've changed all the icons which look chindi af

 

also drag and drop into the running program icons on taskbar doesn't work, you also can't right click now on taskbar to open the task manager.

 

All minor issues

 

Aside from this you can take screenshots with series x controller share button( they disabled it on win10 :rofl: )

Game gives wrong button prompts some times.

When I say wrong i mean PS4 button prompts for Xbox controller, like something about vaulting over obstacles using the X button

on PS4

on Xbox controller it is A button, X is for throwing a weak a*s punch on xbox controller

:ko:

I thought Eidos Montreal is a big studio with established QC procedures, don't they even test this stuff?

 

Game looks pretty nice, I took a few screenshots, good it has photomode

Looks beautiful, some screenshots.

Pity that the FPS in the open areas drops a lot, and my GPU usage is 100%

I want to upgrade but don't want to pay scalper pricing :\

Some of the BGM reminds me of Ratchet and Clank, which makes me sad I don't have a PS5.

Also the structure of the Milano and it's rooms and all reminds me of the Normandy from Mass Effect.

Which also makes me sad because who knows when Bioware will finish ME5 :(

 

Overall loving the game, it's nice and chill compared to the stress of Elden Ring

I really hope they make a GOTG game sequel, maybe with each teammate having their own moveset and all( i.e they too will be controllable not just quill )

Finished the game, what a blast!

It's literally a mini-mass effect, never expected it to be so good, only the combat and upgrade paths were a bit lacking, this game totally went under my radar, never even saw a trailer of it thinking it's the same mtx loaded cash grab like Avengers :rofl:

If I knew it was so good would have bought it on steam where it goes for 1.5k during sales

What GPU do you have rn ? 

 

GTX 1660 Super.

Performance wise only faced issues in certain areas of GoTG, but in ER and GoTG both I have heard the GPU fan spinning at high speed, idk if this is some driver issue or my card is just too weak.

It means that your GPU is on full to high load. Nothing to worry about. Both games and all the current games in that matter are GPU intensive.  1660 SUper would have a hard time running games at high presets and high res. It's a 1080p card afterall.

But it's good still if you play games at 1080p and med to some high presets.

Yes, on GOTG GPU usage was 100% continous, on ER idk because msi afb tanks the framerate for whatever reason.

Hope new stock comes soon for the RTX cards and these vendors stop holding onto inflated priced old stock

You can get RTX 3060 for 39k. That will be huge upgrade over your current GPU

If you contact Prime directly, they might even reduce the price further.

In chapter 5 and I feel the game is actually tough even on lower difficulty settings.  Quill hardly has any moves and has to depend on the rest of the team members to survive/win , and has to keep waiting until their meters refill. Apart from that, the voice acting is good and the story seems interesting as well.

There are a lot of moves available though. You almost always have some power up ready. It's better to synergise. Better to focus on single enemy and finish him off. Use groot to tie them down them blast them with rocket,etc. It works much better when you synergise and not just do random attacks.
