    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.

    In the first mission, I delivered the dead body of the American president, my mother, to a disposal facility.
  • [10172]
    I did a few more normal missions. So far, this is very enjoyable in its own way.

    In a tense walk through a BT-infested valley, I reached the Wind Farm.

    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 finished chapter 2 and went to a cool new area. I got bionic legs now, and the ability to fast travel.

    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.

    I met some Porters, actual sentient humans in the world who didn't try to kill me. Amazing. :)
  • [10214]
    I got a Bola Gun! It's awesome, I took out an entire camp of MULEs and stole their truck. It's so great to have a truck.
  • [10215]
    The highways look surreal.
  • [10216]
    I got to the Weather Station and Bridges now has adorable delivery robots!

    I shot some more MULEs and stole another truck and drove it from the farm.
  • [10218]
    More trucking.
  • [10219]
    My truck got hit by MULE spears on the highway, and it ran off the road. Pretty cool dynamic moment.

    I accidentally cut the end of the previous video. I transported the weird time hourglass girl who seems to have a lot of trouble with speaking to her boyfriend. It's delightfully weird when you're transporting a human, a mummy on your back.

    I got into a brutal fight with a MULE base and after punching out everyone, I took the opportunity to steal a new truck. I also got a grabby gun and the ability to customize my backpacks.

    My sneaky stealth mission with the Sticky Gun turned into a messy brawl with the MULES again. It was a fun, chaotic affair with a lot of close calls.

    Sometimes good game design ideas get ruined the player second-guessing the game. In a callback to several old Metal Gear games, a guy who was clearly a terrorist shows up in a Bridges outfit and gives you a 'gift' for Fragile, which is clearly a bomb. On inspection, it's called a bomb in the inventory, and it's blinking red. So what to do?
    1. I would like to inform Bridges, but that is not possible.
    2. I try to recycle the bomb, hoping that would destroy it. Not possible
    3. I then go to my destination, which triggers an immediate and very inelegant game over screen (the first one I encountered in the game).
    4. I then try leaving the bomb on the ground and walking away. Game over.
    It turns out that what I was supposed to do was to take it to the base where Fragile was and then go to sleep. Then, suddenly it dawns on Porter that he's carrying a bomb and then everything starts to make sense. Very frustrating sequence.

    I did a frustrating war boss fight with Unger. That sequence felt a bit tacked on.

    I finally met Mama and heard her crazy story. She was pregnant and stuck in rubble after a terrorist attack, surviving by drinking rainwater, and gave birth to a ghost baby.
