Default The Outer Worlds - Impressions @PCInvasion

PCInvasion shared their impressions of The Outer Worlds.

The presenters chose to clear out the factory floor by making their way to the control room and making a public announcement. That's where we got our first look at the "dumb" option, which is a specific character trait for characters with below average intelligence that opens unique dialogue paths. However, be careful when going with this trait. As a dumb character, sometimes the game will only let you make a dumb response.

But being dumb doesn't necessarily prevent you from being able to do smart things. Players can overcome their low IQ by putting extra points into science or hacking. They'd have a disadvantage compared to smarter characters, but Obsidian said it's entirely possible to have a dumb hacker.

You can be just plain old dumb. They even have a phrase for it: script kids. You don't have to be dumb, but you certainly could be. It takes no skill. You just use someone else's program.
