I just finished Outlast on PS4: in a word, spectacular!
This is the first horror game I've ever played where I have actually been scared. Very immersive, very effective, and it doesn't even have very good graphics.
An interesting aspect of the game is your complete inability to fight back--all you can do is sneak, run, and hide. At first this can be frustrating, especially when you have so many opportunities to appropriate any number and types of weapons, from your own fists and dropped knives, to clubs and even dropped firearms; hell, even power tools. Eventually, though (and once you understand this--I did not and spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to fight before I cheated, looked online, and discovered you simply can't), the inability to forcefully defend yourself becomes the greatest challenge of the game.
Anyone else playing? I just started the DLC. Quick question (and I've looked online and no one else seems to be having this problem):
DLC cannibal cook section; he tosses me in the crematory and says, "Stay in there and cook!"
I head to the back of the oven and begin striking the wall; the bricks begin to give way. At the fifth strike, I am suddenly unable to hit the wall. I can still move around, but striking the wall is no longer an option. I’ve tried all three controller layouts, but I experience the same issue every time.
I’ve looked online and no one else seems to be having any trouble. I’ve watched several walkthroughs of this section of the game, and everyone else tumbles through the broken wall after five strikes.
