    I couldn't see a thread for this already and it's out on Friday. There are no reviews up that I can see - I don't view that as an encouraging sign!

    Is anybody picking it up?

    Launch trailer below:

    It doesn't look brilliant, but it does totally appeal to me. (No shields though, big mistake)

    If one thing pisses me off royally here, it's that the is a review embargo until Friday, day of the physical release, although the PSN version is out since yesterday (US) respectively today (EU). Meh.

    Well, means I am not tempted to pay through the nose for the PSN version, and will (if at all) get it on Steam for almost half the price on Friday.

    It's all ready out on PSN but I'd rather wait for reviews and a disc release.

    I quite enjoyed Mars: Warm Logs, as ropey as it was in general.

    But that only cost a tenner.

    40-50 for something that will no doubt be slightly broken, have terrible voice acting/dialogue, have a disappointing and generic modular world and probably be done in around 10 hours, is a bit of a stretch though.

    I liked War Logs and Of Orcs and Men, and this looks like it's going to be in a similar vein, so I'll pick it up either in a Steam Sale or when it's about 20 quid on the consoles.

    The PS4 streams aren't exactly showing it in the greatest of lights.

    It really does look quite poor.

    Loads of gameplay vids on YT, fits into the TW,Risen and DKS mould for me.

    Yeah, but enough about [FAVOURITE AAA FRANCHISE], what about Bound By Flame?


    To be fair, it's said to be a much bigger game than Mars. But I know what you mean, having played Mars.

    The brief bit I saw looked like the game has terrible collision detection. I'm going with EG giving it a 5 or 6/10.

    I've been watching a few streams on the PS4; those playing seem fairly happy with it.

    Reviews are irrelevant if you're able to watch somebody playing it live and fielding questions.

    If only it were a little cheaper...

    This looks right up my street . Along with games like Risen , Risen 2 , Gothic 3, Two Worlds 1 & 2, these types of games always aim high and ask a lot of tolerance from the player , but the experience is usually enjoyable.


    Incidentally, on PC from Zavvi its 20.68 for the physical copy( with their 10% discount) and 18 from Green Man Gaming for the Steam version.

    @DUFFMAN5 Yea from the guy that never played Skyrim. I had a look at the gameplay vids and it does look pretty poor.

    @MrWonderstuff
    Hi J I did and have played Skyrim :-)
    As for BBF you know I like slightly janky action RPGs, goes without saying I would be getting this.

    I've really enjoyed Spiders games so far, particularly Of Orcs and Men, which is what Bound by Flames reminds me of visually. I have the PS4 version coming today as I fancied a Dark Souls-style action RPG to play on the new console (hence why I didn't get it for PC) even if it is obviously not going to be as superb as FromSoftware's classic. From what I've seen of it on YouTube walkthroughs, it looks pretty decent albeit a bit rough and ragged around the edges.

    PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, PC (Intel Core i7-4770K, 16 GB, 4 GB EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SC, Windows 8.1 Pro), iPad 4, iPad mini with Retina Display.

    After their unfairly harsh The Amazing Spider-Man 2/10 review then I'm inclined to think they'll go lower than that just for the sake of controversy and web page hits even if the game is considered average everywhere else.

    @DUFFMAN5 Glad you played Skyrim :-) Look forward to your thoughts...and yes you do love those janky games...but I don't mind them too...so you never know I may get this if it's a 7/10.

    Cheers Fletch, I will read later. I'm not going in totally blind, I have known about and kept in touch with the game for a good while now. I know it will scratch my actionwesternroleplayingame itch ;-) I also know it will not be perfect.

    There was nothing unfairly harsh about that Spiderman review. It's dreadful.

    Having said all I did about this yesterday though, I know I'll probably end up downloading it drunk one night.

    Release today and not a single official review from anywhere. Why the lengthy embargo...cautious now.
