Disco Elysium: Final Cut

So, I was actually curious enough regarding the portrait to have a cursory look around the Internet the other day—according to some Reddit and Twitter threads on the game, the developers keep the picture around as a joke (leftist humor can be quite edgy), and are probably libertarian Marxists or left communists. They're Estonians, who witnessed the fall of the Soviet Union, which obviously colored their opinions heavily. All in all, this likely explains why communism isn't presented uncritically in the game.

 

Nice research! I still find the choice a bit strange - why not go with someone less jarringly awful, but still having the leftist connotations, e.g. Marx? - but I suppose it's understandable given their affiliations. The company being a co-op is a nice touch, too. Definitely putting this game on my wishlist. There's another leftist game, albeit outright communist, called Tonight We Riot that's produced by a worker owned co-op and I wish it'd come to PS4.

 

I do find people who have that sort of perspective interesting - my egg donor grew up in the USSR and had a lot of insight into it and few bad things to say; I wish I'd gotten more of that kind of perspective, since you can't beat someone actually having lived experience.

USSR did this "cult of personality" thing for a long time where there were portraits of Stalin and/or Lenin everywhere: schools, factories, government buildings, etc. Maybe it has something to do with that. Maybe the Disco Elysium devs recreated that atmosphere to inspire them during the development. To set the mood. As for Marx, I don't think he was idolized to that extent. 

 

Maybe some of that tradition still remains in Russia, because I remember that in my school days we used to have photos of our current leaders (Putin, then Medvedev) in classrooms. Not sure if other countries do the same 😁.

Anyone know when this will be available to preorder on the store?

 

Was expecting it to be there now given plenty of other titles that have a later release date are on the store.

Just came here to mention this.

 

Yes, its due out today. Maybe if its a WW release it will be up on the store around 3-4pm UK time today??

 

They have stopped responding to questions about preorder, launch, trophies etc on their socials over the last few days, so unless they are busy with the games release or there is a problem with the game, then we'll have to wait and see??

 

I am surprised the list hasnt been seen yet or uploaded?

 

Edit: Oh I just noticed the tweet above your post, didnt see that yesterday. My bad.

Seems like it will have 20% off for PS+ members, but I'm not sure it's live yet since it has no original price crossed?

A guy I know who is playing on the PS5 now has said the following:

 

The fps in 4K mode is really bad and has had to drop it to 1080.

 

Regarding 'fully voiced' characters, some characters dont speak at all and isnt sure if its bugged or not?

 

The game tends to skip lines when pressing 'X' which he said is annoying as the game is heavily narrative driven.

 

One final thing is there are dropped inputs at times.

 

Other than that its all positive.

Just came to this thread to see if it's just me or the game is broken. I guess it's not me. "At times", he said. Oh friend, it's not at times, it's almost every goddamn time. You select an object with RS, you press X or R1 to interact, you see some indication that the interaction is supposed to happen but nothing happens, and you have not only to press the button again but to choose an object as well. So annoying. Hope they will fix this very soon.

 

Or maybe I misunderstood your "dropped inputs", but anyway this is the problem I have. And FPS on PS4 isn't satisfying. The way the game looks, it just doesn't have right to run under 60fps.

Hi, have the same problem with the inputs. Its like the game completly ignores every third or fourth X button press I do to interact with something. It is a pretty mayor problem in my opinion. I hope the devs fix this fast.

Also I have a problem with the extremly tiny text font in the menu. I simply cant read the text while sitting more than a meter away from the TV. The game offers a text size slider, but this seems only to change the dialog text size.

otherwise I really enjoy the pretty demented humor of the game.

Did some one try to play the ps4 Version as well and has experience if the Problems are the same here? I'm thinking about playing the ps4 Version then if there are less bugs

Apparently, some Reddit folks seemed to have more success by holding down the X button until the interaction triggered, but your mileage may vary. Sucks, but perhaps I will wait on buying it, then.

Oh no, if you buy it we all become communist, thanks for saving us.

Listen everybody, you either buy it or go to gulag, is that simple

 

*Soviet anthem starts playing furiously in the background*

 

*ahem* now come on let's just play it and let political connotations aside, shall we. I've been waiting for this game since people began praising it for its story on Steam.

Some of us like to consider other factors separate from the quality of the game such as the views of its developer before we drop money on it. Sorry if this offends you.
