    Watching the part where Gavin's not in the room makes me wish Michael streamed like Ryan, Jack, and Jeremy do, he's still pretty entertaining by himself.

    So are they not going to release part 10 or do you think they haven't filmed it yet?

      I would ask the same thing however, they could have stopped filming or playing.  The game feels like it is not going anywhere.

      Could be because Lindsay had Iris and they're on maternity/paternity leave. She was pretty early iirc, so they may just have not had time to film it yet.

    Kinda bummer that they missed that one note along the shore, this game makes zero sense without it. Not really any fault on Michael or Gavin, I blame the game itself for being kinda shit with its story telling.

      Okay this got a tad long. I'm not that good with words, I wanted to find the note online and transcribe it here but I couldnt find it rip, so here's my crappy explanation.


      Well basically it links this game with the first one. The note they missed was written by someone who supposedly worked at the "factory" that you see in the distance and mentions a doctor who had worked in the hospital from the first game. Remember how in the first game all the women were removed because the experiments made them think they were pregnant? Something similar is happening here. The "factory" is sending out some sort of radio relays that make people have shared hallucinations based on their fears and stuff. The cult was already kinda bonkers to begin with I think, but the relays intensified that. They were all having their inner thoughts and fears relayed to each other and bouncing back and forth getting more and more terrifying. It's why everything seems so real, even though certain things arent actually happening, the shared hallucinations make you think it is because other people seem to see them too. Nobody is actually pregnant, there are no swarms of bugs or, in the future of this game, it is not actually raining blood.

      Totally. I'm just staring at this game going "WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD GAME DESIGN?!" The raft handles like a cow in a shopping cart but only has consequences when the game wants it. 

      Like they pointed out, how the FUCK do the natives get around?

      Several points they could have just walked away into the forrest if there weren't invisible walls or easily climbable surfaces stopping them and ended the game there.

      Everything looks the damn same.

      The Enemies look like they've invaded an Anorexic rehabilitation clinic. A five year old armed with a fidgetspinner could fight off most these guys.

      And Who the fuck designed that pool scene?! "Want a riveting chase scene? I GOT IT! They have to run in a straight line for like. a really long time. But here's the kicker right, we give NO indication of what way to run, going the wrong way is an instant loss. Looking at the enemy is an instant loss, and everything moves super slow because it's in water." "Brilliant Bob. Here's a promotion!" "But...Shouldn't there be some sort of actual tension not just slowly walking in a straight line and hoping you didn't spend a second too long turning?" "Nonsense Brian, we'll just add some music that slowly amps in intensity!"

      I really like the game, having played it, and prefer it to the first one.  It's very psychological, more horror than terror, while the first one was more the other way around, so if you're looking for a game just like the first one you won't find it in Outlast 2.  I appreciate the developers not being able to just make a game just like the first one though, for the sake of not just repeating themselves.

      @Sharkwaiter I'm all for something different, I am. Amnesia, Outlast 1, RE, Five Nights, Silent Hill, etc, etc. All pretty different games and stories. Good is good. But this just feels so empty and bland. I have vivid memories of these other games, whether I played or watched, but other than that scene with the guy trying to help us, nothing in this game is memorable. 


      The rest is "Oh we're running? Oh they're crazy. Oh we're dead. Oh I'm recording? What am I recording? That's not at all what I thought I was recording." I'm really just watching this series before bed (great sign of horror, right?) for Michael and Gavin's commentary.

    I find it really hard to enjoy these lets plays when Micheal is so clearly bored with it, its so much more fun when you can tell they are genuinely enjoying themselves like the Zelda lets plays, or watching Micheal nerd out on resident evil 4 (too bad it didn't get enough views to continue)

    SPOILER AND SOME CLARIFICATION (for those who want it): The tongue monster demon thing is Father Loutermilch (aka Louder Milk according to Gavin), the asshole priest at the school, NOT Jessica. You can tell because they have a matching birthmark on the top right of their forehead. I think the whole tongue gimmick is meant to be an allegory for his lust and sin because he's kind of a creep. 


    Also, though I love my boyz doing LPs together, and I'm thoroughly entertained by this, I don't want you guys to be forced to play through things you're bored with/not interested in. You're doing a great job with what you've got, but hopefully you guys won't get trapped again into doing 15 parts for a game that doesn't even do it for you.


    My hope is that you guys find a thrilling game in the future that really makes your hearts race and actually is clear on what's going on. (I would love to see Michael drag Gavin through a Dead Space game or to see you guys try that new Perception game, made by a bunch of guys from Irrational Games).

      Gavin playing Dead Space while Micheal watched would be a funny change that I'd like to see. Gavin gets the crap scared out of him and Micheal gets to rage at how bad Gavin would likely be at the game.

      That note is placed perfectly. 

      It rewards people invested enough to explore the game, with answers to questions they have. Its like saying "hey you've spent time exploring and no doubt you have more questions about the plot than the regular joe, here is a lore tidbit that will answer some things".

      People dont watch AH for a in depth lore driven analysis of a game. There are better places for that, Jesse Cox and the Scary Game Squad is one such group.

    It's kind of annoying that they complain just because they're unobservant and can't follow the plot. But every lets watch cant be 100% gold, I can deal with a B- every now and then.

    • Rhodi FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      5 months ago

      to be honest I think they mostly complain that the game overall is barely playable, full of frustrating moments (like near the end of this video), monsters catching through doors, bullshit sneaking (You get detected from a mile away before you even see the enemy). Game has a weird pacing full of running around in chaos while being chased looking for a way to escape like a barely visible rock that you can climb. There is a better illusion of the game not being linear compared to the first game, but I don't think it was a right move in this case.


      And I find the plot to be pretty weak as well, outside of the shock value there is very little to it: 2 factions of people that got crazy because of some failed experiment using some waves and no one gets what's happening, if Lynn is really pregnant, got the fetus stuffed into her by some weirdos or it's just mass delusions at this point. First game had a much better story, with prisoners being tortured to the point where they could be a host for the Walrider, which itself was a pretty interesting link to the german folklore 'creature' Alp.


      Sure the character in this game is more interesting than in the first one, but as Michael stated many times there is no way he could be that easily killed by sick and dying folks, in the first game You were a normal dude against some crazy ass murderer prisoners. And his background? His childhood friend was murdered by a priest, probably raped too. The game is too vague about everything, when I finished it I was like "...eh? Ah, whatever."


      Sorry for a long reply, but I think it's better than marking Your comment as Lame, like everyone else did. I fucking hate RT community for that, no point having an argument when You can click that -1 button, right? Fucking kids.

      @Rhodi And to further the point of the enemies in the first game. The ones that are attacking you are designed with big bulging biceps and shit. And by the time you get into the Asylum, the ones who are surviving are the Predators of an isolated Biome who have survived by killing people just like the Antagonist and by learning how to survive around / with the Apex Predators like Doctord McScissors-and-ass and the big fat guy with the chains.

    I think the issue they have with the game is just their lack of observation and forgetting to use the mechanics of the game. I do think this game isn't as good as outlast 1 but i don't think its as bad as they make it out to be. The main issue this game has is lack of interesting characters Marta is the only character in this game that i found genuinely scary.

    • j4sonm FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      5 months ago

      I think its more the setting of the game than it is Michael and Gavin. One of the things Outlast did is put the player in a narrow and confined area where the only directions to look are forward and backwards, making it that much more likely that the player sees whatever the devs want the player to look at. Unlike the first this game is very open and has a lot of things to look at. Gavin brings up a problem with this change of setting at 9:20. This change doesn't really work when the player is supposed to see something in the distance, but the first game taught you to keep your eyes on the path ahead of you, a concept that is continually and conflictingly reinforced in the school sections to Outlast 2. Another moment this occurs is 11:40 when they're passing by the lake, without night vision on to conserve battery( again like the last game taught them) and miss what they're supposed to be looking at because the place is so bloody huge. The locks are also a result of change of style from the last game, as there were no lock function in that one, which also validates Michael saying the fact there is not a close and lock button in addition to just close is a huge miss. I can't really fault them for missing this since half the time, the player is an a pitch black room, not knowing to look for the lock. I myself only noticed there were locks in the game two parts ago when I saw it in the comments.

  • StephanieSaavedra

    5 months ago

    I know it's been said a bunch at this point, but the problem with this game is that it's genuinely very jumbled and the atmosphere that the first Outlast had that made it so effective only really exists inside the school, not within the confusing towns. The objective of escaping a corrupted asylum and having every single attempt at it torn away is what made the first game really appealing, along with the creepy, not as garbled as this one, plot that it had. I guess if this game was set solely within the school and built it on just that, it may have been better ??? Not to say these let's plays aren't enjoyable, because they are, but this game is such a let down 

    • TheMattEffect FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      5 months ago

      I think one of the main problems is that it suffers from a sort of identity crisis, it doesn't know what it wants to be. Like Outlast, the objective for the game was pretty clear; Find the story, and then it quickly became a case of getting the fuck out of there only to be held back at every turn and the ending being rather bittersweet.


      This game wants to accomplish the same kind of idea, but a lot of the sections are bland or make little sense - Where's my wife? Why was she taken? What's the payoff here? Instead of answers, we're given constant chase scenes, lacklustre characters and a rather dull backstory.


      The Asylum was fucked up on the surface, obvious from the get go, but it got so much more fucked as Miles went deeper without becoming TOO absurd. The 'bog' doesn't have that same curious mystery about it.
