Void Bastards Review: A Surprise Game of the Year Contender

  • Posted on 28 May 19 at 16:29Permalink
    Bioshock reference definitely got me interested. So I won't be missing it then. Gamepass even, and already tomorrow :).
    Beware of the grammar police!

    Since it is on Game Pass I might give it a look. The BioShock reference catches my attention, and the graphics almost remind me of Borderlands.

    Hardest difficulty with 0 deaths? Ugh. Hopefully you can NG+ and start with a leveled-up character.

    Randomly generated rooms kill all interest i may have had in this game. Sorry, not my cup of tea.

    I loved Tower of Guns, Immortal Redneck and Mothership-whatever-it-was, and this sounds like it should be a more nuanced and focused take on the genre.

    Looking forward to it! Thanks for the great review!

    Same here, was reading it and then says you die you have to start at the beginning lost me too. Probably play this if game pass quest makes you get two achievements in it.

    I hear roguelite and I have to play it.

    FPS is usually enough to send me running from a game, so this wasn't even on my radar. Cracking review, though - I'll give it a go :)

    Sounds like Prey Mooncrash. I say that as someone who hasn't played Prey Mooncrash.

    Interesting review. But the achievement list is very bad to be honest

    Ya....that sounds miserable. Even with a leveled-up profile with all the perks.

    There's more to gaming than restriction through achievements.

    Was interested in this game a few months ago when I first noticed it and heard about it's basic concept. Then the author used the word "roguelite" and probably scared off 99% of everyone. But not me. I LOVE roguelite games. This is a MUST PLAY for me.
