    5 I think, as it's 9am PST which is 8 hours behind us, so now you have an extra hour to play :D

    25% off on Switch too so comes in at €14.99.

    I went through all my cartridges and claimed my Gold, 1055 coins I got. So goose only cost about €4.

    Only 3-4 hours to complete, I'm reading. Still, I think I'll go for it once I've finished Link's Awakening. It's just too damn awesome.

    I've seen people say 90-120 minutes which is very short imo. It's got a charming art style but I think there is better games out there in its price range.

    Great week for short games between this and Sayonara Wild Hearts. I have nothing but appreciation for games that waddle in, do their thing extremely well, and waddle back out while you still have a big ol’ smile on your face.

    Played through the opening groundskeeper section last night and it’s a delight. It’s a game where farce is baked into the very controls, and just moving the absolute prick of a goose around is amusing. It’s a very low key, playful game mechanically. It looks great, and I love that they’ve managed to slot the silly, perfectly paced music that made the trailers so good into the final game intact. It’s possibly the first game I’ve played since Jazzpunk that’s properly, consistently funny.

    I got Sayonara and Blasphemous this week, but I will definitely grab this after payday.

    Short, but very very fun game. Found myself laughing like a loon as I flapped my wings and honked after committing some act of devious goose shenanigans!

    There were a few I objectives I couldnt figure out
    breaking the broom, breaking the vase, earning a flower from the women at the pub

    Short but hilarious.

    It's a great lil gem from a small group. So i dont mind paying that price

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    It’s a shame Roger Ebert isn’t around. We could show him the bit where the asshole goose locks the nerdy kid in the phone box as the definitive evidence of games = art.

    Everyone playing on Switch or Epic? Trying to decide which to go for. €3 cheaper on Epic but performance is the main thing, since not playing in portable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,441 ✭✭✭marcbrophy


    Bought it on EGS!
    Gonna play it tomorrow afternoon :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10 champ79


    Not showing up for purchase on Steam yet for me, is it being released later on PC or something?


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 50,907 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    Epic game store exclusive for now


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 28,633 Mod ✭✭✭✭Shiminay


    I finished it earlier, I will definitely be playing it again.

    Who could resist this charming honker?

    The fan art threads on Twitter have been a lot of fun.

    Made me laugh - ANARCHY GOOSE FOREVER!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,290 ✭✭✭corcaigh07


    Is it crazy that I’m very tempted to buy a Switch just for this game? It looks genius to me.

    A really wonderful little game. Played it on the Switch with my wife and a friend taking turns and we just giggled the whole time while being jerks.

    ended up buying it from Epic - it's GOOD


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,869 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Finished it last night. Just couldn't change Goose's fate.
    Damn you Maverick! :(


    Enjoyed the game. Not sure I'll go back and do the post game stuff


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,965 ✭✭✭Doge


    As a bird lover and bird meme lover I had to get this from epic!
    Just made it past the groundskeeper now and it's s really charming game.

    Finally figured out how to get my Xbox wireless controller working with non steam games via steam link.

    You just need to have steam start up in administrator mode during boot.

    Started this on Xbox the other night and just got the
    crown
    there. The third area was a pain to get done in 7 minutes. Took me 5 attempts.

    I think I was expecting more form it based on the hype around it but it was still an enjoyable game.

    Did you expect to be an evil goose?

    HONK!!!

    Just invested in Gamepass and this and Outer Wilds are the first titles I installed.
    Played a bit of this though and it's a lot of fun being an a$$hole Goose!
