Oof. Not even 2 and a half months old and 60% off? Jesus 😲

If that UK chart where it sold like 1k in its 3rd week is anything to go by, no onder this game is on fire sale.

This must be that Sony Greatness we hear so much about.

This game flopped but by all accounts it’s great. Don’t blame the devs, blame the special kids at camp Sony for being unable to play anything with more than 30mins of uninterrupted gameplay.

Just looking at videos, the main character is very uninspiring. Like a middle aged butch Karen that's playing pretend. It does look like I'd have fun playing through it though, so I'll probably pick it up at some point, just not grabbing my attention to race out and get it.

Look at the reviews, its not just a killer, its what Nintendo couldn't do, and won't be able to achieve until 2035, because their specs are from over a decade ago.

It really seems like all of the people who have something bad to say about this game are those who never played it and are trying to justify not playing it.

Returnal is an amazing game which surprised the hell out of me. I can see why people return it though. It's f*cking brutally difficult and certainly a 'git gud' game. But once you ace the mechanics and flow, everything else seems kind of meh in response. Similar to what Dark Souls/Bloodborne did to a lot of action RPG mechanics for me.

Nobody cares. Literally. You and the dozens of others who enjoy this flop can start your own petition maybe to help more people care.

Exactly. It is an amazing game and it's hilarious to see fanboys try to justify hatred for it.

It's really the best 'next gen' game that has released so far.

Could be

1. Fake

2. Photoshopped

By anti sony guy maybe gamestop employee put that on there or someone shopped it or printed one out.

We dunno what happened here the story of this game.

Is it a flop? What was the development cost? Housemarque was an independent studio prior to being acquired by Sony so I imagine their budget was small relative to what we are used to seeing for what some would call "AAA bangers" :P

As for the price and/or pre-owned, isn't that the point of physical? Plus the game is a one-and-done, isn't it?

It went on sale to $50 in Prime day, so i'd hardly argue this is fake.

Is it not a rouguelite shooter? I thought the whole point was doing runs, getting cool upgrades, and blowing shit up.

I haven't played it yet, am a bit interested tho since it does look fun.

Maybe someone here who has played it can clarify. How does it compare to Risk of Rain 2? Or other roguelite shooters where the game play loop is what keeps you coming back - and beating the game is not really the motivation?

Yes. For one, there's more than the main story line.

-- and it's a rougelike that you can enjoy any time. I still load up arcade shoot'em ups like Dodonpachi or Mushihimesama for a quick 1 credit complete attempt, so why not this game?

On to topic, the game flopped. Saying to the contrary is living in denial. It doesn’t mean the game is bad, it just means that Sony fannies hate games in which you actually play.😂🤣

No. Once you finish the game, the game literally remains the same. I was going to max out all the weapons but the repetition is too intense having completed the game three times. Solid game nonetheles.

Shipping cost will be another $25.

$29 is a drop in price. Hmmm i remember seeing a system that hasn't had a price drop on their games in decades. Hmmm what is that system? Can't recall what its called. Help me out.

No you don’t. You don’t think the game is not worth the price and you are one of the reasons the game flopped. Metroid Dread is going to outsell this without trying.

I played it on my brothers PS5. Once I got the hang of it, was pretty fun!

Then a run I spent hours on was nuked by an auto update that shut my game down without asking, and I was reminded why I hate rougelikes. And auto updates.

So yea, the game desperately needs some kind of save option imo

Probably fake. There's no used versions on their webpage and no used value if you search for it. Kinda strange it'd be marked that much off when its selling new for $70.

Can't find it on GameStop.com for that price, but on amazon the lowest I see it used is $56. Isn't GameStop supposed to be greedy? That's lower than any other used PS5 game they have

(OK balan wonderworld is lower)

@vl4d_l3nin: i think save option will break this game. you can easily finish the entire thing in 2 hours if they implement a save feature. dying is integral part of this game. giving you access to unlock the weapon traits by constantly using them.
