Outer Wilds 

 

I got a free copy of Outer Wilds thanks to Xbox Game Pass. I am glad too because I would not have purchased a disposable digital download copy of Outer Wilds myself. We are an alien astronaut on an alien world exploring different planets. We also have very little time before the sun blows up and we get reset. We are living in a time loop in Outer Wilds. The Groundhogs Day concept has been used in video games before.

As we progress in Outer Wilds we learn things. Thankfully we do not need to repeat the same things over and over again. We retain the knowledge from the previous loops and that is how we eventually progress. There are a variety of puzzles we must complete in Outer Wilds. The issue can be time runs out before we finish a puzzle. So we must quickly get back there and do it again. This can be very aggravating at times.

The controls are a bit loose in my opinion. We deal with alcohol and violence in Outer Wilds. There are oddities in Outer Wilds like ghost matter. Zero G is challenging in Outer Wilds thanks to the controls. The coolest thing to do in Outer Wilds was roast marsh mellows. The first person perspective in Outer Wilds is what made that roasting part really cool. The irony is that is just one small aspect of this game in the beginning.

There is a mysterious race that once resided on the alien planet in Outer Wilds. As an ancient alien in Outer Wilds I felt like I belonged in a History Channel television show with a guy with wild hair talking about me. Did you catch that joke? As we complete quests in Outer Wilds we learn the history of this fantasy universe. The ending of Outer Wilds is a bit different than I was expecting.

I did not enjoy Outer Wilds very much. Too much of this disposable downloadable only video game feels like been there done that to me. I hated the flight controls, and am not a fan of being in zero gravity. The gameplay bored me to tears. Outer Wilds looks okay and has some nice music to listen to. Some of the alien characters were obnoxious in my book. I am going to delete Outer Wilds and never think of it ever again.
