Sunday embargo is odd.
They did explain to me why it was on a Sunday and here it is

"Yes, the embargo is on a Sunday! Weird right? So we did this because anyone who purchases the Deluxe version in their preorder gets access to the game 2 days in advance and we didn’t think it was fair or nice of us to [try to] hold anyone to an embargo after fans can get into the game. So, there it is: a Sunday embargo. =)"

Makes complete sense, would defeat purpose of not allowing media to talk about a game that's out for early access buyers.

Guys, when will the pre-loading start? I thought it would start on Feb 4, while Feb 6 is early access. I still can't download it (bought the Premium edition) on PSN.

Any idea or info?

This looks like an easy 87%. The previews have been extremely positive so far.

same here. Also, the unlock timer in PSN counts down to 1 pm tomorrow (21 hrs from now) rather than midnight? Weird.

True. Same. Games usually unlock for me at 10 AM (different timezone). It is now showing 5 PM. No preload.

I think it's because of the early access thing perhaps? The early access and preload might go at the same time.

Sifu preload starts on the 6th. It only benefits the people who bought the regular edition. For those who bought the deluxe edition, they can download it beginning tonight at midnight and play right away.

Sifu pre-load will become available 48 hours before the official release. Given that the game is set to be released on 8th February, you will be able to pre-load the game on 6th February at midnight, local time.

This goes for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as the Epic Games Store, where the game will be exclusively released for PC.

The repetitive gameplay loop is my concern with this one. The only thing I've seen is walk a bit>start combat encounter and repeat.

To be honest, i can't think of a western game with satisfying melee combos so i'm very cautious on this one.
Animations also seem pretty stiff and weak, with sudden transitions from an animation to the next, and that should be the core of the game... so yeah call me cautiously pessimistic.

It's a fun concept, but I have seen nothing that makes me think it's gonna go anywhere near 80 on Metacritic. The combat is not as spectacular as people say it is, and it looks very grindy. Hopefully, I am wrong.
Agreed. I was enticed at first but after seeing more of this, I'm realizing Midnight Fight Express looks waaay more exciring to me.

Losing all of your abilities upon death certainly sounds like a roguelike to me.

I wish just once companies would have the fucking balls to admit what their games really are before asking people to pre-order.

Ill wait till I find out. People here still think when you die in returnal you lose every bit of progress which isnt true.

Surprised theres not more reviews with it being playable 2moro?

Patiently waiting for the reviews to drop. Been looking forward to this game for months but have held back from preordering.
