RE: Amnesia AMFP SPOILER THREAD *ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK*

Holy cow.

I was confused when I entered this topic (I knew there was a possibility of spoilers), so I watched a few seconds of it. The first moment, I thought, ahh, is this a The Dark Descent custom story which tries to imitate A Machine For Pigs? But after I heard a squeal, I immediately stopped the video.

I do not know what will be revealed in the video, but I will take my distance from it either way. I would never have thought that someone would post videos of the actual game before it was released. It surprises me.

I want a 100% fresh experience with the game for my playthrough and let's play, and most of the things I assume/"know" about the game is mostly speculation anyway. Since something like this has been posted online, I may browse/post here less, or stop entirely, until the game comes out, just to make sure nothing is spoiled. =)

Interesting... I hope he won't reveal too many spoilers to his viewers... I hope FG/TCR prepared for this and possibly put in a few random events for them.

Of Course there will be spoilers! He's doing a montage video, of him getting scared by different events! I haven't watched the video and I won't until I've done a playthrough and a review based on my personal opinions and expressions of it.

Also if they really had to make an announcement like this, why couldn't they do an announcement at gamescom or some other related event. Seriously, It feels like FGConfused like:

-Hey, instead of showing our dedication to our fans and do something more related to our actual community base. Why not give away a free copy to a youtuber with a very bad reputation among FGConfused community. That'll make them excited to play/produce content for our game...

Also it's a horror game! The main aspect of a horror game (at least for me) is the constant fear of what to come the unknown in other words... When I played TDD for the first time I had no idea what to expect and that made me horrified of what could be lurking around in the shadows...
And people watching his montage and then decides to buy the game will have a whole other experience playing it.

There will probably be several moments were people will be like

-Oh shit! I remember this, this is gonna be horrifying.

But due to the fact that they new what was going to happen, they didn't get as scared as they would if they would've been caught of guard, by surprise (that also is a main factor in horror games)

So before I write to much to give a fuck about, I'm just gonna say that this is my personal opinions and I have no rights commanding other human beings to act in a certain way. So if you think this is right then that's fine with me, I just lost a lot of faith in FG due to this...

EDIT: In other words, don't watch the video if it will loosen your 'faith'.

Well, I was very skeptical about this in the first place, but then Scraper said it might boost the sales. And it is, it's now back up to #11 on the top sellers of Steam while it was #22 (give or take) a few hours ago.

So I am still a bit skeptical about the revelation of spoilers... I hope FG will take action and adjust the game upon its official release.

So I'm not gonna watch that video (just saw the first 5 seconds and turned it off), but I'd like to know how much exactly it is he's spoiling, at the beginning of the video it says something along the lines of: "The first hour: and a half". So what Pewdiepie is showing us is just the first hour or so? If that's the case then it's not THAT bad now is it?

RE: Amnesia AMFP SPOILER THREAD *ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK*

My question was: is it just the first hour and a half? or is it more?

Or rather the question I WANTED to ask. Sorry

Oh, sorry...

I guess it's what it says. Best parts according to him from the first one and half hour of the game.

How come? They don't seem to give a single crap about the people actually interested in the actual game! People watching pewds are generally there to see him get scared...

Let's say a good reviewer like TB would've gotten the copy I'd be totally fine with it. He's always very cautious not spoiling anything.
But seriously making a review on a game like amnesia is kinda stupid, It's very linear and there's not much to say about it due to the lack of things to actually do in the game...

And if i'm really gonna cross the border I'd say it kinda feels like they're "milking" the sudden popularity in Amnesia. This may not be true but from what I've heard it seems as if they assigned The Chinese room to produce the game as FG started working on the HPL3 and other projects. I basically feels as if FG didn't produce this game at all.

Now concerning the "lack of faith" thing I'd say I'm less excited for AAMFP as well as HLP3...
