Disco Elysium

ok I know this forum is more or less moribund but I can't hack it around Serious Gamers, I can't, but I happened to hear about this game called Disco Elysium and it intrigues me. Mostly because I thought it might actually involve disco, which it seems not to? But it sounds interesting anyway. Some kind of Estonian no-combat RPG, this seems kind of up my alley honestly... I don't know how I feel about the Chapo Trap House cameos but they are cameos at least?

it seems like a game for people who like the Meaningful Dialogue Choices part of crpgs and wish they'd throw everything else away to focus on that

ciderpress, Saturday, 30 November 2019 21:25 (two years ago) link

me personally i don't care about Meaningful Dialogue Choices but I do enjoy walking simulators and the style of the game intrigued me. so i took a chance and i'm enjoying it so far! it reminds me of Gate's version of Saturday Night Fever.

Idk just that a lot of games touted to have good writing do not

I was fully ready to find DE grating or too self-conscious but I'm frequently quivering with mirth at some of the dialogue options it offers you, and the skills-as-internal monologues thing is handled well

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Tuesday, 7 January 2020 00:53 (two years ago) link

its good at adapting to your dialogue choices and stats without being obvious about whats going on behind the curtain is what i mean

I liked the writing a lot more as a low int high physical character. Which I think is an achievement.

put a few hours into this over the last couple of days and i’m very much enjoying myself, although my character’s tendency to die of despair after touching some stuff in a car or kicking a trashcan is... confounding

How does this game compare to something like, say, Oxenfree (which is fun enough but basically a story-based game where you pick dialogue options and they slightly affect what happens in the end)

Feels kind of weird to me that they're announcing some sort of definitive special edition of this before it's come to any of the consoles in the first place. Supposedly PS version comes out in March 2021, and Xbox/Switch version in summer of 2021, though I wouldn't put much faith in those latter two, which is too bad, since I'm sure this could be a good Switch/portable game. I'm still super intrigued, though.

Is full voice acting really necessary for such a reading-intensive game? I hate how it's become an absolute must these days.

a lot of jrpgs still do the "main story scenes are voice acted, incidental dialogue and sidequests are not" thing but people always complain about it so apparently it is necessary

worzel scampidge (||||||||), Friday, 11 December 2020 22:18 (one year ago) link

Which sort of makes me more intrigued. There have been some downright magical Switch ports (Ori, apparently Witcher 3, a lot of the Bethesda stuff). Then again, speak of the devil, Doom Eternal clearly ran into a million problems on Switch. But they got Control running on the Switch, right? Granted, it's on a server, iirc, but that's a game that doesn't even always run well on more powerful consoles, maybe they will do something like that?

Am I right, though, that this seems like a big open-world game that might benefit from portable Switch play? I've been avoiding spoilers, because the praise has been so fervent, but I kind of get the sense the PS4 might not be the right fit for this. I could be wrong, though.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Monday, 12 April 2021 12:24 (one year ago) link

I've still not experienced anything more than those initial couple of minor bugs but glad it's got the patches going now anyway.

I can tell you it's a vastly escapist version of political science which has little-to-no resemblance to the real world beyond a bit of satire...

So far it's been a lot less about politics than a surreal Twin Peaks-ish murder-mystery

Man, I completely disagree with this assessment, dl. It's... very very political. In the most depressing way. In the nihilist "all political ideals are bad because humans are inherently bad" way. It's such a good game but so grim.

emil.y, Monday, 12 April 2021 18:19 (one year ago) link

the strain of capitalism has been felt by dog latin, I see

mh, Monday, 12 April 2021 18:43 (one year ago) link

I agree with you Emil.y, it's definitely political. I meant that it wasn't rooted in real-world politics and that the politics in DE are a very incisive satire on political factionism. I've only just started the third day, so maybe I haven't quite encountered the grim realities yet, but I've found these caricatures of left/right/centre more funny than grim so far:

The far-right elitists, so convinced of their intellectual and physical superiority that they become engines of unfalsifiabie dogma during any argument.
The radical leftists, so narrow-minded in their doctrinism that they're constantly having to swerve away from all-out genocidal thinking.
But by far the most interesting caricature/parody is of the centrists, who've become so high on the smell of their own farts that they exhibit an almost cult-like belief in the financial structures and institutions they've built up for themselves, often turning a blind-eye to the very idea that these might be their own type of totalitarian brutality.

Yes, it's grim, but it's darkly comic in every way. No one gets out alive, and I have to concede that the parts where my own beliefs are challenged and taken apart are the funniest bits.

Party With A Jagger Ban (dog latin), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 12:40 (one year ago) link

I've finished my first playthrough as a Communist and will start a Radical Centrist 'what would Wes Streeting do' one when everything's patched.

It definitely feels like it gets heavier and darker as the game progresses. The balance between humour and bleak horror isn't always an easy one but it's an incredible achievement overall.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 13:46 (one year ago) link

had to sell a bunch of postcards and my shot-put ball to progress the game.

Bought this on xmas sale and haven't tried yet. Can't wait.

maf you one two (maffew12), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 14:05 (one year ago) link

So, I finished the game last night. What a ride. I laughed; I cried; I became Dance, the destroyer of worlds. I still think the politics are more grim than funny, for me they're really not that far removed from the real world and the real world is Not Fun. Which is maybe why I alternated between Sorry Cop and Apocalypse Cop so much (with a tiny sprinkle of Art Cop thrown in for good measure).

There were definitely some bugs in the PS4 version that I played but only one that caused me to almost rage-quit (one character refused to show up at the appointed time no matter how many buildings I went in and out of, no idea how it fixed itself but it did eventually).

emil.y, Monday, 26 April 2021 15:40 (one year ago) link

Somehow, in the middle of playthrough number three, my character became... inadvertently racist? I swear I didn’t internalize the terrible racism thoughts, but at some point — I suspect due to lacking skill points in some of the thoughts that would have warned me — I ended up only having dialogue options that would alienate poor Kim!

Everything ended up OK, though. It was probably payback for choosing to be an ultra-liberal who loves money.

I'm not enjoying this. The pungent voice isn't by itself appealing to me, but where it really feels like a slog is the sheer amount of dialogue I struggle to maintain interest in. Maybe I should try to suppress my min/maxing urge and only pursue dialogue options that interest in me?

Elementary, My Dear Hoatzin (Leee), Monday, 24 May 2021 18:58 (one year ago) link

Well I'm stuck in this game after several hours and I'm a bit cheesed off about it. Can't seem to progress at all

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Monday, 24 May 2021 20:59 (one year ago) link

What bit, dl? The bug I mentioned was with The Pigs not showing up, had to do a bunch of going in and out of locations and reloading the game before it fixed itself. And if it's not a bug but you getting stuck I could maybe give you a hint?

Leee, it's a ridiculously text-heavy game, which is good for me as I love text adventures, but maybe not good for a min/max type. And yeah, you do have to learn to not choose every single dialogue option - definitely go for the ones that interest/entertain you, or the ones that suit the playstyle of the run you're doing.

emil.y, Monday, 24 May 2021 21:10 (one year ago) link

So without wanting to spoil anything, there's a day when Kim goes away to do something and during that time there's a check that fails to appear and you can't progress the game until he comes back. Had to do a lot of digging around Reddit to work that one out

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 25 May 2021 00:19 (one year ago) link

This game is yes, very text heavy. I often find myself playing it till the wee hours and falling asleep. In a way that's cool though cos you can play it at your own pace

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 25 May 2021 00:20 (one year ago) link

Not sure if I'll play it through twice though. can't imagine it being especially different the second time round. Maybe?

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 25 May 2021 00:20 (one year ago) link

I'm playing it through as a Physique/Psyche apocalyptic cop: my failures are the most entertaining part of the game. Next time, high intellect pedant, so I can lecture the characters of Revachol on correct thought. But perhaps I'll wait a year before returning.

worst boy (Sanpaku), Wednesday, 26 May 2021 18:08 (one year ago) link

Okay so I completed this tonight and uh... well that was... tonally abrupt. It just kind of ended with a grouchy argument and a "well I guess that about wraps it up, let's go home". But disappointed as I felt that, despite having done a he'll of a lot, there were still things I'd wanted to do, things to explore, checks to be tried. But no, you meet the perp, chat to him for ages then meet your colleagues and then go home..
I figures I'd try again immediately with different skills, but there wasn't anything strikingly different about my encounters or conversations beyond a few things. I found myself barrelling through dialogue trees and skipping lots of cues because I can't really be bothered to listen to everyone say the same thing again... I dunno, should I keep going in this way, or is it a waste of time? Maybe give it a while and play again?

I'm enjoying this a lot more now, now that I've figured out some of the mechanics and how to progress through the checks. Also, I've found some tasks where the wiring really does move me. I will say that it's hard to fully commit to role play, and the minmax urge can be hard to resist (thankfully I have the thought that gives you extra XP for Commie responses).

BABA BUOY (Leee), Friday, 25 June 2021 17:03 (one year ago) link

Finished!

As to dog latin's point: I agree that the narrative pace slams into a wall at the end, and as far as murder mysteries go, having the two most damning suspects not even in the picture until lateish in the game is unconventional -- and I had quite a few additional skill points left over that I hadn't spent yet.

BUT, I was still transfixed by the exchange with the Deserter, for reasons aesthetic (that voice) and for the cautionary tale that (I think?) the game was trying to tell? Like, I was trying to be a pinko, but then comes this comrade with revolutionary bona fides, washing away all the ultraleftist posturing that I'd been engaged in prior... but he's basically a fascist, an example of this idealized past, a symbol of Communism done right that's incredibly seductive and evil.

The UI sux though.

this game is pretty clunky on the switch - it lags, you can see graphics loading, it has full-on crashed a couple of times (which i don't think i've ever seen happen on a switch game at all before) - and there's so much loading! there's a part where you have to go back and forth between two characters to compare their stories, and they're in the same building, but there are three load points in between them, and it takes so long just to travel from one character to the other!

that being said, i love this game to point that i don't even care about all of that. it's so good and fun and weird. it looks really nice when you zoom in all the way, but i have to keep it mostly zoomed out most of the time so i can see where i'm going and what's around me.

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Wednesday, 27 October 2021 01:33 (eleven months ago) link

finally got a bug that kept me from advancing (nothing was interactable, including doors, so i got stuck in a space i couldn't leave) and the worse part it was in a section of the game where you can't save, so now i have to do that whole chunk over

Dialogue heavy RPG’s not typically my thing, so this being almost entirely dialogue was a tough sell, but I was looking for something low stress last Sunday afternoon and took the plunge. Totally grabbed me, found myself playing way too late into the night this week. Just finished it up. Easily the best writing in a game I’ve played. Kind of a Pynchon thing going. A+, glad I picked it up.

circa1916, Saturday, 19 February 2022 05:07 (seven months ago) link

I played the “definitive” version. On PS5. Load times were super snappy (could see that being obnoxious otherwise) but still hit a few, thankfully not game-breaking, bugs along the way.

The church/club section was definitely my favorite bit. Once that peaked I honestly would’ve been totally satisfied if the game ended right there. But there were some great things to come. Loved the phasmid stuff.

circa1916, Saturday, 19 February 2022 17:09 (seven months ago) link

I picked the brainy path, seemed like the obvious choice for a dialogue driven game, but I am super curious about how this plays out as a physical character. Probably run through it again down the line.

circa1916, Saturday, 19 February 2022 17:13 (seven months ago) link

yeah, it would be nice to just run over the big racist dude who blocks the bridge pretty early on.

that reminds me, though, that the only way the writing/story occasionally lets me down is the caricatures of the different paths you can go down, communism, fascism, the union, etc, are sometimes just a little too exaggerated and oversimplified. i think it works for the most part, though, because in general, the game does a great job of making you feel a little bad about every decision you make, like everything you do is both kind of a good decision but also clearly not what you should be doing, all the time. it's so fucking good

Oh totally. I was rarely onboard with any of the didactic political paths and the game makes a point of calling out the dangers of centrism and/or not choosing sides all the same. Like there aren’t really “good” options most of the time, it’s a big mess, everything’s challenged. It kinda rules.

I still ended up as a maybe half assed communist, apocalyptic art cop.

I wouldn’t be able to stomach it, but seriously interested in how the game plays out as a full on fascist, racist meathead. Surely all points lead to some same-ish kinda endpoint, but I wonder what kinds of divergence are built into this thing.

So it turns out that most of the original creators of Disco Elysium have been involuntarily pushed out of the company, including Robert Kurvitz, the lead designer and writer(!)

This is super fucked up, but unfortunately not particularly surprising for the indie games industry. https://t.co/Op1R46drgJ

Every week I have a moment of sadness realising there is no game like this and that I cannot play it again for the first time.

Church disco situation is a classic in a game of classics. I think Evrart Claire saying “Harry” is the best part of the game though. An Evrart Claire x Phoenix Attorney type crossover would be my dream game.
