    if he was infectious and didn't know it he could have put a lot of lives at risk wandering around unescorted I guess.

    The game did look pretty incredible at times and some of the worlds were amazing and I think most of my ire comes from death by a thousand paper cuts than any one thing was totally insurmountable by itself.

    I also never got around to talking about the fucking wookies... Who releases a triple A licensed game in 2019 with one of the most iconic character races from the one of the biggest franchises in the world looking like this....

    considering how amazing some of the other models looks it's laughable this was the best they could muster.

    Jedi Fallen Order, finished and immediately deleted from my ps4 forever.

    what a fucking load of shite. even after playing my way through the whole game I feel cheated for having spent £40 on it because I don't think there was a minute of it where I was actually having fun. I tried to persevere... I learned blocking,parrying, dodging and all that timing nonsense, even though it is about as tightly pulled together as a jumper knit by your nan after 2 bottles of sherry.

    I fed myself into the meat grinder of encounters and bosses and traipsed back and forth from checkpoint to boss only to get killed in some stupid endless unstoppable combo because you can't heal without stopping dead still and definitely not when they're hitting you with things. I waited minutes to respawn and get back only to die quicker than it took me to return to the spot.

    I did all the fucking stupid inane boring puzzles, pull this, push that, jump here, I re-did them again when the basic fucking movement mechanics didn't work properly and I ended up launching myself into the endless void instead of jumping to the next section or just get pushed off a ledge while sliding down the most pointless agility gameplay sections you could dream up. I swam around in the boring underwater bits with nothing of any interest to look at and some of the worst swimming controls since tmnt on the NES. I did all that and worked my arse off just to get to the end and was faced with such a bullshit boss fight after 10 goes I realised I was 1000000% done with it and stuck it on story mode and cheesed my way to the finish and I dont care one fucking bit.

    As I said to a friend who also hates it, this is brexit the game, I can't figure out why what is seemingly just a collection of some of the worst decisions ever made is so well liked by the general populous.

    Final verdict: 2/10

    sorry to hear about the pressures you're under.

    the doaskid discount hasn't worked for me for quite a few months. I've no intention of trying to backdate anything as you do a bang up job but nice to know it's still there.

    oh and one of the biggest causes of death, trying to fucking heal yourself mid-fight. you either move too much and it doesnt work or you freeze long enough they take off more health than you healed.

    I'm playing on ps4.

    the further into it I get the more I hate it. I'm deep into sunk cost fallacy territory now.

    Just finished a massive section with an annoying fight with 4 creatures, a few crawlspace loading screens, more creatures, a massive in-game elevator cutscene, a puzzle, an ambush fight and I was on a sliver of health, I walk to the door and a previously unspawned enemy bursts out the ground straight into an unblockable attack and hits me with two normal attacks before my character unfreezes and gg back to the fucking start i go.

    i read a review that says the campaign is 12 hours long and was glad I dont have to grind through this shit any longer than that to feel like i got my moneys worth.
