Of course, being a PS4 title there was an annoying installation process. I thought it was ready to go but it said "Copying language data..." which took TEN MINUTES. WTF? This is why I play Switch games. Playing a Playstation 4 game can be a real chore.
Anyway Late Shift is a good interactive movie that runs about an hour. You're some kind of parking attendant in a garage who finds himself in the middle of a heist. You sit back and watch and every now and then it gives you a few seconds to make a choice, like "go along" or "resist". It's all very seamless. The thing is, after one play I'm not sure how much impact my choices were having. Like one times I chose to "run away" but the guy just chased me down and made me go along anyway. Maybe tonight I'll play again and try to make the opposite choices to see what happens.
When I was done it said I had reach 1/7 endings. I must have found the worst possible ending because the game ended abruptly before I really knew what was going on.
I preferred the Bunker TBH. Surreal with reasonable playability and a need to come back for more.
Lateshift. I beat the game in two hours with all the endings. The only really good thing is one person is reading about Von Neuman, a really MAD (wee joke there) American.
