Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Anyone playing this game? I now Assassin's Creed Origins seems to be the talk of the town lately on the interwebs but I have to say this game is fantastic. Silly controversy aside this game is fun and the story is very good so far. Playing it on my PS4 (non pro) on a 4K TV and graphics are very good. Same Wolfenstein play style as the 1st one but with some nice add on's including perks and weapon upgrades.

been playing it since midnight on Friday and it's right up there with BOTW as my favorite game this year. I've been raving about it in the console gaming thread below. I've put about 12-13 hours in so far and I'm about 3/4 through. Rarely does a game hook me to that extent where I play that much in a single weekend

Yeah I agree with you. Cant wait to get home after work and get the kids to bed and put in a few hours. I didn't check the console thread, my apologies, even though I think it deserves its own thread :)

It definitely deserves its own thread and I was going to make one but didn't bother because it's kind of an under the radar release compared to hype behind Destiny 2, Odyssey and AC:O right now. I think it's going to be one of those games that slowly grows in popularity as people get around to playing it later this year and next. It's a shoe in for shooter of the year imo

Not sure if you got there yet but the whole sequence of events during and after the farmhouse had my jaw on the floor and a big stupid smile on my face. Haven't got that feeling from a First person shooter in a very long time if ever.

Yeah lots of decent games out right now but I was in the mood for something like Wolfenstein after HDZ.

I have just entered Manhattan actually so pretty early in the game.

I'm still kind of dragging my feet on HDZ. It's good but I just have trouble sticking with the same game for 30-40 hours straight.

Man you haven't seen anything yet. Let me know what you think after you clear the farmhouse and events leading up to New Orleans

I've heard great things about this game. I'm waiting for the Wolfenstein 2-pack (New Order and Old Blood) to drop back to $25 before I play this.

Checking in to see how everyone feels about this game. Waiting for Switch version to be released.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

I played it over the weekend at my friend's place, and I'm definitely gonna pick it up, but probably after I play through and trade in COD first...

Finished last night at 18 hours on Bring em on difficulty. Haven't done the preorder episode yet and they also added a challenge mode in the new update. I will definitely do a second play through sometime next year choosing the other character to live and also just because it was the most fun I've had in a single player shooter since DOOM. My only complaints were the lack of interesting boss battles compared to TNO (the last one was kind of terrible) and some occasional weird optimization issues and framerate drops in places that made no sense. 8.5/10

I enjoyed it. I played it on default difficulty and I thought it was pretty good. I've definitely enjoyed this run (The last 2.5 games) alot more than the few games from the era before that. These are fun to play.

Yeah, outside of this current run by Machine Games, the last Wolfenstein game I enjoyed was Enemy Territory, and that was a multiplayer objective based shooter. So glad Bethesda resurrected this (and DOOM). They're trying with Quake, but I'm trying to think of other ID properties they can bring back... Hexen? Maybe try again with Rage?

I'd love to see a duke nukem side scroller (opposted to the FPS that it became later in life).
