I've heard a number of people with similar impressions of Scythe (though overall the impressions on BGG seem very positive).

I guess it's mildly divisive?

I really liked the 1st movie. I like to think that I don't scare easily- but I was pretty darned scared during this movie. I actually had to tell myself that this wasn't an actual found footage movie - yes I did. Will never repeat that ever - thank god the internet doesn't make things permanent.

On paper it should be a great fit for us, but after a couple of plays it simply didn't fit with our group. i think timing your stars is pretty important and perhaps that was something we didn't fully grasp in our plays. We all agreed that it felt a little bloated.

We played with 5 players both times, maybe player count was part of it? Nate and I wanted the combat to be something else as well. I understand that it isn't the focus of the game, but it felt a little lackluster.

We loved the upgrade mechanic and the popularity loss from attacking other players workers.

I have other games that fit better for us (Age of Discovery was a hit), so I'll write this off as more of a player issue than a game issue.

It's not a remake, it's a sequel
It is? That's odd. Is it a sequel to the first or second one?

The second one is only related by title.  It has nothing to do with the first.  Or, anyway, it doesn't count.  Blech.

As I mentioned, the trailer has a guy talking about his sister.  They head into the same woods to find out what happened to her.  Maybe she's still there (I'm holding out hope that Heather Donahue pops up).

I know a lot of people didn't "get" The Blair Witch Project, especially if they saw it after the hype died down or the realness of it was proven to be fake.  There's also the found footage gimmick that is integral to the movie that somehow, later, turned into a genre.  There's no denying the movie's impact, though.

I got very frustrated at the time by the number of people who dismissed it.  Especially those who decreed it "not scary."  The trend for jump scare = scary had been in full swing by that point, and this movie doesn't have any of those.  It's a long, slow mounting of tension with very little release, which I guess some people found frustrating, especially when they went into the movie looking to judge the hype.  If you let yourself get into it, though, the movie's sense of dread is fantastic.  The pacing is fairly incredible, frankly.

There's also a mythos that is kind of buried in the movie, which lends itself to repeat viewings.  A lot of that mythos was fleshed out in some of the media that followed (the games, the journal, etc.), but it's in the film.  It's what makes the shot of Josh in the basement so chilling.

Anyway, I get that for some, the movie left a bad taste, but I feel like you missed out.  It was inventive and skillfully made.

Yes. The stupid .net4 was tripping me up. I didn't want to use my ASUS disk because the USB drivers are bad. But the SSD wouldn't let me connect to the web. So I booted up the old drive and put it on a thumb drive and put it on the SSD. Then it wouldn't run it saying I already had it. Roll Eyes So I bit the bullet and used the disc. Sure enough, when it was done all my USB's were dead. But this time I was ready with a PS2 mouse, and set up a virtual keyboard, downloaded the updated driver and I was set. Then I updated everything because the MOBO is 2 yrs old and it's not like those drivers were fresh then anyway. Then I decided to roll over to Windows 10 because I want DX12, even though I don't need it yet.  That went seamlessly, but I had to learn where MS moved everything Tongue I love the drive. It is a quite noticeable difference. Only thing, I thought switching between drives or dragging stuff over would be simple. I must not understand something. So if I can't do that, my storage went from 2T to 512GB, which after the partition and stuff I put on it is down to 360. It's still more than worth it, I just have to be somewhat careful.
Moving files/docs/pics/etc.. are simple to move.
Keep in mind though, that you can't move any programs and these need to be reinstalled from scratch.

I guess this game will NOT require a PS Plus membership in order to be able to play it online.

You guess correctly.
