It’s finally here!
After years and years of development hell the Friday the 13th game has finally arrived.
Well sort of.
It launched Friday but for upwards of 40-50% of the people who bought it it was very, very difficult if not impossible to play all day Saturday and into Sunday morning.
I myself burnt about 2 1/4 hours on Saturday coming back to the game and firing it up in the hopes of getting it to work.
But then as the sun was rising Sunday morning and I was preparing to call it a day I fired the game up and it actually worked.
And it was glorious.
Running for my life from a human controlled unstoppable killing machine took the good parts of Alien:Isolation and made them better by replacing the monster’s AI brains with a human being.
First match I managed to be the last man standing before Jason found me, smashed his way into my hiding place and chased me down.
Second match I managed to survive the full twenty minutes and barely escaped the clutches of the undead giant.
Third match I grabbed the car keys early on and when I spotted that two others had fueled the car and replaced the battery I swept in and took the car from them. One of them joined me and we tried to make our escape before colliding, literally, with Jason. When I restarted the car I accidentally ran my new buddy over trying to escape certain death and drove off, his corpse mushed into the dust as I did Jason’s work for him. Eventually I escaped and earned one of my new all time favorite achievements. “Chad is a Dick” for escaping in the car by myself while others were still fighting to survive.
Many of these things are in the video below. I apologize if I’m ramble a little in it as it is very early on Sunday morning and the need for sleep is catching up to me.
And pick the game up if you can, I can use the friendly faces to play with.
