It's been on for quite sometime now, started it back in 2016 and started playing it again in December. Great fun
Was talking about Ascent.... its so good I'm pausing my lvl30 Dragon born.

Also no way that this is indie...nope, refuse to believe that statement.

Managed to play the prologue.

really enjoyed it, plays nicely looks fantastic on oled, and playing with headphones make all games better :)

Strange that there is no HDR though.

A lot of the average reviews are about balancing issues regarding the difficulty. I don't think that's fair on these okes - it will likely be patched but the review won't change...

F Skyrim I know what I'm playing this weekend.

Looooove this game

ha! just started (reached the 'stinky something' level -3- and this game is fun (especially after you pick up the sub-machine gun)

Edit: Btw, if you enjoy The Ascent theme then you should read "Wool" by Hugh Howes (Silo Series) - it's exactly this - an underground Arcology

Wait till you get the bigger machine guns, my only issue is the mobs don't level with you,so you'll be splattering level fours at level 20.

Thats just the thing... you get the false sense of "I am a god" till you hit skull mobs, or when you bring a fire weapon to a robot fight.

Am Still loving it.

But I'm playing it between my PC and Xbox + I'm using the same character on another friends profile, so we're playing through his story.

That's pretty funny considering they reference GTA 5 in the article.

Suspect this to be the reason for his argument.

Not to mention that I was one of em sales, while having active GamePass Sub and GTA V being on it.

Wonder how much of em Billions was cause of Shark cards and not the game.

Nothing says F U quite like a 5.72 gig update when you turn on your console to sneak in a quick game.

On the positive side... fixes for The Ascent inbound :D

And yes, I know running in instant on mode would update in the background....

Just did a quick check

Sound bug fixed as well as some ui tweaks
Weapon vendors also stock a bigger range
Menu navigation added L1 & R1 support

There might be more but above is what I noticed with 10 minutes of play.
