Listen: 'Jedi: Fallen Order' Shows That a Good Star Wars Game Doesn't Have to Be Original
"Talk about what might be my favorite game of the whole year star Star Wars Jedi fallen. I haven't walked back. He came in two three days ago and so game of the year hasn't finished it so he says journalist so I played it for about a week now and who ooh I love it David. Lexus Game Tomb Raider. It is a lot like tomb. Raider little uncharted and then apparently a little dark souls. But I wouldn't know. Oh will you like Neil and save at points so yes that's right yeah so it is very tomb raider but but I think it controls like more like an action game which looks kind of goofy over the shoulder and you're watching somebody play still bouncing around like an idiot but it makes sense for doing that but I also downs around like and and it's also because the only time you've watched well watched other people. Maybe yeah well mainly combat the Jevon driven around like an idiot probably okay Salmon Tina. You're both playing just. Nasim played it yet to hear how RPG like it is uh-huh this say it's very RPG. Excited I don't mean to derail I had heard was that has a really big really involved skill tree which I didn't know it has the skill tree that pretty much every game released. Okay this Asan's creed got it it's less RPG as isis greenhouse so it's like everything is RPG like in some way so it falls on the RPG scale somewhere. Yeah these are the distinctions. We need to make before twenty question. No that's one of the greatest things about it has all of these like little elements five different games and different genres and kind of come together in a cohesive way so excited it should decorate. Yeah we're actually recording this before a review goes up Dan Is Handling Review. I I don't know what's so I don't know what score is GonNa come down on but I know he's very very high on he's bullish on one thing I like about The the combat so far has been frustrating. Although I know you solve it when we were the three demo and you've got through a bunch of the stuff but right now it's like I'll have a group of enemies around me and it's actually like tough enough that I'm dying a lot. And I've had moments in Batman Arkham asylum. It like that but what I like about it is that while I'm doing that you are constantly deflecting shots being shot at you from faraway really really fun and I know so. It's because like the lasers are slower than bullets which is like the stupidest thing like me a human see the blazers. It's coming at me. I feel like really cool like doing it. But if that was really how lasers work that I could probably do that. They just slowing it down the human you but the jet I you in the game actually sees it much whole games running et exactly the just showing you what a Great Lakes game design challenge feel like lasers but be slow to deflect all the other game design challenge too. Is You have a lightsaber. That should be able to push through most anything but there's like really big pots into but other ones. Okay no the really big ones. You can't do all you can't through any walls and the game either Tori really great. Yeah you're always on the other side of like three like metal bars looking through it's like you and it has actually for sure they have you looking indication later you'll be able able to get through here like Metro and you know just melt bars you got but you are in Jeddah temple so maybe it's Anti Jetta made made from some metal. What's the DELOREAN's metal armor made out of? I don't know I just watched a whole episode about it. I can't tell you I love hearing how metro-wide Vania e it is or Metro chime specific measure prime which which the developers were up front about that multiple planets that are way more intricate. And you you know. Non Linear and and sort of loopy pathways than kind of expected that so an expected and cousteau metro prime was famous for this Big Three d map that you kind of see really needed needed to go or you haven't had been yet and it's really good and it was like feels like super futuristic and stuff this game has that Matt but I don't know if I'm like like if it's just like because it's less boxy unlike more organic. It's so hard to use for me right now but you say you wrap your mind. Map has a learning curve that was it was confusing at first. But now I'm used to it and I can I know. Ah If there's something on the map that I want to get to. I can usually get to it and you can. I love how the robot a BBDO sorry droid projects in math in real time. It's like in dead space when you have like your health package just like lights on your armor and there's a lot of stuff in this game really doing the work early beating the flashlight. That's true and that's also he's also your health bar on your back yes. It's so like dead space magnate and also a tip since beatty one is projecting your map in real time. It doesn't pause the game you can. It'll be a ten. Oh yeah the hard way giant rats around. Yeah don't look run for your life is i. Don't want any stories. Spoiler the rats kill you is your killer viciously. It's a big threat to a jet here right now is that are you. Is your character cool. I think so. He's likeable and it's not like super every other characters better. I mean he's just like he's like a pretty vanilla hero but it doesn't bother me. I will say this there are some really funny moments. I forget what it was. What was one of the early comments? Oh because he's a yeah exactly like they're like no trashes allowed here something and he makes a joke about how he's actually trash. So there's like these little funny cute goofy moments that he just didn't make him more likable. That's another thing that I've heard just around the office is that You know that doesn't come through in the trailers just seems like incredibly generic and I've heard this game has better writing in dialogue expected surprising to me and this is not a spoiler. He's just really young. So it's like all the characters that are interesting around him are adults and he just doesn't know a lot and doesn't do a lot because he's like a teenager so I think they they don't. They didn't do a good job of sabotaging that outside the game. Now that I'm in the game like oh he's just like his whole he's just a kid. Yeah I've come to a decision I'm GONNA play it that's good. I think you're going to be happy with their. I've been joking on scoop for weeks about how I don't play anything but that's just you know I wasn't interested in call of duty and wasn't interested. Trust in-depth stranding. So this is this is the one this is the woman."
