Here's a thought. Since the game is based on BW16, that would make Lane the movie version of Carver? Trying to complete the time loop (so Lisa records the video that draws them to the woods and starts the cycle). Which would make Lisa... Ellis? She has a panic attack at one point during the movie. Very Ellis-like.
Blair Witch will be available for PS4 on December 3rd. Includes something called the "Good Boy Pack" that lets you customize Bullet. New skins and animations for your four-legged friend. It's worth the 30 bucks. Give it a look.
Wonder if you can make Bullet another breed. I'd like a hellhound. Or a chihuahua. Same thing really. Both are evil
SO the PS4-DLC brought anything new to the game besides the cell phone games (quite a way to update) and pet skins?
Bullet has some new animations. He sticks his tongue out when you pet him sometimes. I've seen him drinking water, rolling in the dirt, and other dog things when he's idle. Those might not be new. Just noticed them my last playthrough.
If you make his collar a lighter color he's easier to see in the dark. That helps.
Firstly, the main character is a massive piece of sh-t. Killed an innocent woman and led his troops to die. It makes the ending (any of the numerous endings) not satisfying because you don't care about him anyways. There's no sense of tragedy like in the original film. BW2016 had the same feeling of not caring about the characters so their deaths don't have that much of an impact.
Secondly, up to the halfway mark, it's just very basic and boring. Once Carver comes into the mix, it starts to feel like BW2016 where everything has a reason and explanation. Once he's introduced, it becomes quite standard from a story standpoint.
The home sequence is pretty fantastic once it starts... then it lasts almost an hour and got repetitive.
It all could have been a lot worse and at least they didn't mess with the origins or change any of the Witch's powers or anything. Or god forbid show the witch or give unnecessary exposition.
It's just... fine. Definitely feels like the child of BW2016 than the original film... even though it takes place not long after the original film. I think the only real reference to the original film is (I think) they mention the original filmmakers on the radio when Ellis is driving to the woods.
But again, I'm glad it's just fine. I wish it was better but at least it wasn't awful or tried to rewrite things from the original in any way. I also wish it didn't feel like a cheap Xbox 360 era game.
Yeah. The game is based on BW2016 and not the original. Which is weird because it takes place before that. Ellis isn't a sympathetic character. I wish there was less war flashback stuff and more BW references. I've finished it a few times and learned something. When you start a new game there is a short clip of two children entering the woods. One of them is a young Ellis. The other boy went missing. Learned this from the notes you find scattered about the game. The witch "marked" him at an early age. It was fate that he would return one day and become Carver.
I've played this through several times and am still finding things I missed. I just now found the spare fuse to turn the lights back on at Camp B. Been walking past it all this time. Also at the Sawmill in the room with the typewriter there are some interesting drawings up on the walls. Worth a look while you're there. The Good Ending still eludes me. Even with the nightvision camera I can't see those creatures until I'm right on them. By the time I see them I'm too close. Zapping them with the flashlight is automatic Bad Ending. So Bad Ending every time for me so far. There are photos hidden all over. Including out of the way places. Haven't gotten them all yet. I think there's one in the Fog section. Somewhere. I hate that part. Loose sight of the trail and you're screwed. Monsters everywhere.
