This looks very much like a playthrough I'm watching on Youtube for a game called "My Time At Portia". I'm not a fan of a lot of video game walkthroughs (mostly because of the people doing the talking), but Ladyshelab is a good Youtuber. In fact, Summer in Mara looks so similar (in places), I'd be surprised if she doesn't start a video series of that one too.

I'm on episode 43, but for the curious:

(And yes, there will be spoilers because it's a walkthrough, in case that wasn't clear to anyone; I'm never going to play the game myself, it's just relaxing watching someone else play it and comment.)

Now that several copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 have appeared in my local CEX at a not unreasonable £25, I'm very tempted to treat myself.
Can anyone advise how much space it requires on Xbox One hard drive please? My 1st gen Xbox has a number of uncompleted games installed, which I do revisit occasionally and am loathe to delete. Think I have only 80gb or so free. Would that be enough for RDR2?

99gb on disk or 150gb digital download.

Just a heads up we may in for stricter video game regulation no thanks to a troll on steam plus we no longer have the eu fundamental rights.im not sure if I should post a link about the game or not so I need help on how to run it by the mods.

You're all right to post the link, I think.

I scanned a couple of articles about a 'rape simulator' game being banned, but I don't want it to become party political.

We can certainly debate the rights and wrongs (and legal details) of censorship.

This new video game lets you do nothing in particular in a suburban Russian tower block
The game is what is called a “sandbox”: where the gamer is free to roam and alter a virtual world. The developer describes it as “post-Soviet and sad 3D” where “nothing awaits you: there is no chance to get out, no room for adventures, nor a breathtaking plot.” All you have to do is experience the precisely detailed, pixelated mundanity of the world around you.

There's plenty of that in the Fallout games, but at least you can actually do stuff.
Exactly. I mean if you want to just wander around the land and discover places? You can. But there is a narrative going on. There are plot points, missions ad objectives.

Sandboxes are all well and good, but if there is no narrative driving you to play I tend to lose interest pretty quickly.
