This game has a fun twist on the usual adventure format in that all the characters, including you, change forms into cats or dogs (other other things, maybe?) so you can explore places and things in ways that are normally not available to plain humans. And yes, it'll be available in English voices and text for us single-linguists.
I've watched this video twice and I still don't know what the hell this game is about??? And that's after reading the damn description...

Mad Max is one of my favorite underrated games, which I've replayed about every 8 or 9 months since I first got it. I was gonna wait until later for this game, but comparing Days Gone to Mad Max might make me pull the trigger on a purchase now. Thanks for manipulating my weak emotions!
The managing of your faithful bike by modding it and keeping it filled with gas reminds me directly of exactly the same gameplay mechanic in Mad Max. The melee combat has the same level of visceral flavor (though less like the Batman Arkham games than Mad Max was). The claiming of outposts, the sneaking, the resorting to ranged combat when sneaking fails... it all just feels like Mad Max to me. Maybe I am indeed alone in this, but my mind keeps giving me flashes of Mad Max while playing Days Gone. Days Gone also has the same "shallowness" (that I find deep enough to enjoy both games deeply) as Mad Max that is hard to put your finger on what causes it.
So yeah, if you liked Mad Max, you will maybe like this one too!

I want this but I'm not sure how my aging PC will fair. i7 (unknown processor speed or what gen it is), 16gb memory and a 1070ti... I'm thinking my PC might start shooting flames out the rear at some point.

Awesome, sounds fun, where are you grabbing it from for $40??
