I don’t know how I found out this game existed. Just one day all of a sudden I was spending hours reading about how poorly made it was. Then after a while I started to feel like I just HAD to play this game. It’s kind of like how you read about some movie directed by Lars Von Trier and see how people are disgusted, or even pissed off after seeing it, but you just want to see it more. (Von Trier “films” are f’n brilliant BTW.)
I think the article that finally sold me on Pathologic (PC) was this review from Eurogamer (Dude knows how to sell a game) that I stumbled upon. It is probably now considered the unofficial sales pitch for Pathologic I would guess.
This game is an absolute disaster. It is supposedly an award winning Russian game that they dubbed in English eventually. Very poorly mind you. I started playing this game and spent about 2 hours going WTF? as I wandered around this crazy ass town. Then I died and realized that I never saved so I had to start over at the beginning…LOL
So I did, and forgot to save again after another hour. Finally, I decided it would make sense to save a bit and I didn’t have to watch the 10 minute intro again and a again. I grabbed some stuff out of barrels that I don’t know what they are for. Not knowing what any of it was for. Talked to some whacked out kids and told them I would kill some people for them. Killed random people on the street because they wanted to kill me for some reason. I think THEY thought I killed some other guy, but that guy was actually me FATHER.
I have no fucking idea what I’m even doing in this game to be honest. Graphics are absolutely terrible. I keep dying because I either die of hunger because NOBODY int he town will sell my any goddamn food, there is no food lying around, sometimes I die because I just get “too tired”, but when I try to sleep so I don’t die of that I die because of hunger. I am screwed. I don’t know where the hell to get FOOD.
yeah…yeah…find a walkthrough. I hate using walkthroughs while playing PC games because you gotta ALT+TAB out of the game all the ime and games as horrible as these always crash. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I can’t send it back because I didn’t buy it where I could get a receipt out of a receipt printer…I can’t quit.
^^WTF man? It’s not even blood. It’s dried PAINT…haha
