Created due to popular demand...

Please Spoiler any relevant stuff though, as it seems like the kind of game, where this is necessary.

Loving it so far :)

Currently playing through chapter 2.

Loving it so far, great graphics and creepy atmosphere. About an hour's worth of gameplay done so far and it's more enjoyable than most horror films I've seen recently.

I've taken a considerate approach in my choices so far. Really curious as to what happens when you make a risky choice though. Like if I had jumped down into the mine to help Jess rather than cautiously talking her through an escape route would Mike have broke his ankle and been at the mercy of the figure following them through the woods?

Anyone else need to take a moment when the wolverine came out of the bathroom cupboard btw?

Hard to post anything without saying too much.

Game is superb though. Atmosphere is terrific, I love the location and the characters are all fantastic. I also love finding these little clues that give you more information on the history of Josh's family and the surrounding mountains. Anyone have any favourite characters yet?

Craig:

I jumped down into the mine and I was perfectly fine. I've been trying to turn Mike into a bit of a hero so I've gone for all the heroic and friendly stuff.

I'm on chapter 5 so I don't want to post too much!

Yeah the wolverine made me jump too!!

I had Mike jump down into the mine, reluctantly, after telling Jess to push the cart at first. Jess noticed the reluctance though when I pressed to see the butterfly effect. Both of us made it through safely, but as I jumped down it cut to the figure stood behind me.

Ive just made it to the seperate cabin in the same chapter, but turned it off at the point before entering.

One of the best aspects is that you can rush through and miss things I suppose. The replay value of this game is potentially fantastic.

Almost didn't get a copy yesterday too, they'd run out in Game when I rolled up at gone 1pm, found a trader on Barnsley market though with a few copies, returned the favour by going back to Game and directing a few more disappointed souls his way.

I like Sam obviously, as it's Hayden Panetierre (Sic?).

Really enjoying Mike and Jess's scenes atm. Chris seems okay too. Not seen enough of the others to form a solid opinion, although I think there's something a bit creepy about Josh for some reason.

Absolutely, I just hope that it's truly a whole different story on the next playthrough and not just minor differences. That's how they've marketed it so I don't think it will disappoint, as you say, the potential is tremendous.

Mine hasn't arrived yet :sad:
You'll love it when it does mate. It's really good. Top notch in the graphics department, frame rate is so smooth, and the setting and atmosphere is amazing. Games like this just reaffirm why I'd never move away from Sony. Their exclusives are far superior to Microsoft's, always have been, and we're gonna be spoilt even more when No Man's Sky, The Tomorrow Children etc hit the shelfs, without even a mention of Uncharted 4!!

I'm looking forward to getting to that part we saw her in the E3 trailers, the bit where she takes a bath. For story purposes of course...
Apparently it's being called 'The Towel Scene' or something similar, as disappointingly the towel never moves :(

is it just like heavy rain type games then?

is it non-linear?
Not just like a Heavy Rain type of game, there are some rotate to look at things and the option to play it with tilt controls if you want, but also traditional control settings.

100% non linear from what I've played, different decisions, different outcomes and gameplay later in the game.

Do people find nudity in games a turn on? I don't get it. It's animation so I know it's not real.

Did you manage to save Jessica when she got taken from the cabin. She died in my game :(
Also who did you choose to save out of Josh and Ashley, if it was those 2 in your game??

Jessica died in an elevator shaft. My least fave character so glad the tart got it :D. I chose to save Ashley and for Josh to die. My reasoning was that Josh was a more unexpected death and felt like it'd what happen in a horror film.

I chose to save Ashley too, Jess died in mine because I slipped chasing after her, think it was the lift shaft also.

I'm on chapter 7 or 8, can't quite remember. Nearing the end though I think.
I'm just starting chapter 10. Turned it off for now though.

Gonna instantly replay it as there's so much I wanna do differently.

I've got Jessica, Emily and Ashley killed through my choices!! :lol:

Finished a play through of it. Must have spent about 6/7hours on it yesterday without realising how much time had past.

Chris, Ashley and Sam all were killed at some point. Going to have to play through it a couple more times and see what happens with different choices. Absolutely loved it.

The CHOICE ala Saw!!!

Chose to save Ashley as I thought Josh was in on it with the killers!! I just sat there in disbelief as he was sawed in half.
