    I want to gush about the area design of Everspace 2. The various custom-made permanent locations contain some number of hidden goodies that are entirely optional to find. Unsurprisingly, you often have to comb the map to find these locations. What I'm impressed is how they designers used various cues to tip you off that you might be near something interesting. Some are obvious, like, "Hey, what's this hole in this asteroid for?", but most tells are subtle. A colored glow deep in the space fog? Might be something there! A minefield in an unimportant-looking part of the area? Maybe you should check it out! Weird space gas emanating from a location? Better go kill those space anemones and see if they're hiding a wrecked ship! The visual cues are so varied and so well done. Then you get to the real subtle hints. Most of the goodies are hidden from your scanners for various reasons until you do a thing to reveal them. What your scanners can see are things like crafting components, the most humble of which is scrap metal. You probably stop actively seeking out scrap metal by the mid-game, but it still shows up on your scanners, and its always located someplace thematically appropriate, like a chain of wrecks that you may have otherwise ignored but lead to one of those hidden goodies. Just great ways to nudge a player to explore someplace they might otherwise miss.

    I watched a streamer play a little of it and it perfectly fits

    the entire game feels like a ragebait, just a complete fucking embarrassment of a game

    The reviewer who played Gollum for Gamespot claims that the game crashed more than a hundred times during an 11 hour playthrough, and gave up trying to finish it.
    Before going any further, we need to address the elephant (or Mûmakil, if you will) in the room: In the state it was in at time of review, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was not ready to be played. In my roughly 11 hours of playtime on "Performance" mode on a PlayStation 5, the game crashed over 120 times (yes, I counted; masochist, remember?), averaging about one crash every five minutes. After my 20th-or-so crash, I got the dreaded "save data corrupted" message, only to realize I'd lost half a day's progress upon reloading. In multiple other instances, game-breaking bugs--such as a companion I was charged with protecting instantly dying over and over again for no discernible reason--forced me to restart entire levels, losing significant progress. Finally, during an especially tedious and time-consuming puzzle, the crashes became too frequent to possibly make it to the next checkpoint in time. Determined though I was to get through to the end and make these setbacks feel worthwhile, I threw in the towel at 40% completion, defeated.

    I don't know how you pass console cert with that, but fuckin A'.

    Unfortunately, I think I own every single Deponia game from various bundle purchases over the years. I have also put 0 minutes into them and I don't think I will ever increase that number.

    it's wild, because the first game sets up the protagonist as explicitly a dirtbag to be held in contempt

    and then they just eric cartman him and double down

    And pretty shit about mental health! In the third game you need to talk a therapist so to get rid of their current patient you float a coupon for free rope into the office. The person sees the coupon and leaves so they can, you know...

    This is the same game with the sole person of color taking over for a monkey doing organ grinding.

    Just a dreadful game.

    No, the game takes place in between Hobbit and Fellowship. That bit is long gone.

    After breeding this carrier bird, players are given the option to name it "Little One," but those who don't wish to grow too attached to the small creature can choose to leave it nameless. During the climax of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, players will then be forced to decide whether Gollum should kill the bird or let it live, which can be a pretty hard decision to make.

    After defeating the Candleman during Chapter 10: The Friend, Gollum will leave Mell and begin his journey to the Shire. When he finally escapes the Mirkwood, he sees his loyal bird, Little One, waiting for him.

    The player will then need to choose between the Kill Little One or Let Little One live prompts that appear on the screen. Since it was the bird's fault that Sauron's forces found their way into the Mirkwood, it makes sense why Gollum would wish to take revenge, especially if players never named the creature.
    No matter what choice players make, the scene that plays after either killing Little One or setting the creature free will always follow Gollum as he wanders through Moria. The credits will roll when the cutscene ends, so players are free to choose whichever option they prefer, as the decision only affects what happens during one cutscene.
