I pre-ordered this, as I have to see this strange game for myself.
OK, this is it. I am starting this controversial game, and I'm very excited. The environments look so amazing in the intro, I have trouble not just standing around and staring at waterfalls. And the vehicle and clothes designs are fascinating.
Martin played the prologue and the cremation mission, and he got caught by BTs and chased over an oily mountainside by a huge Lovecraft-looking squid-whale monster.
We then returned to my save game, where I got access build power stations, charged a bike, and drove it all the way back to Capital Knot City. I then got access to blood grenades, which seems like the first weapon of real use against BTs. On my way to the port, I ran into real trouble and also got caught.
I went for an atomspheric walk in the Central Region, saw some awesome looking new environments, and discovered a few bases, that weren't open for business. It's too bad that they're not interactive when you find them randomly, it detracts from my interest in exploring.
