"Pathologic 2 begins at the end of a failed playthrough"

Mike Suskie for GC:

Dead bodies line the streets, soldiers are rounding up what few survivors remain, and the authorities seem ready to raze the town to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Our protagonist – Artemy Burakh, a surgeon – believes a cure can still be produced, but needs more time.

He gets that time, as Pathologic 2 then rewinds twelve days and grants us the opportunity to steer Artemy in the direction of (hopefully) saving the town. Those opening images continue to linger, however, as showing us how this story can potentially end lends the proceedings a sense of inevitable, impending doom.

If players hope to protect the town, they must first protect themselves. Pathologic 2 is a first-person survival game, and this manifests in the usual sense of having to monitor meters for hunger, thirst, energy, and so forth. But whereas most modern survival titles center on hunting and crafting, Pathologic 2 is set – at least initially – in a thriving community where the materials we need are bought or exchanged for work. As circumstances grow more desperate, the barriers of society begin to crumble, and players will likely need to begin stealing, looting, and even killing to obtain what they need.

"I am already hopelessly obsessed with Watch Dogs Legion's NPCs"

Christopher Livingston:

A citizen who once fought off muggers after being stabbed does more damage when he's at low health, but has -20% health to begin with, indicating he never fully recovered from his injury but the experience left him more dangerous when he's hurt. Another bio states that the NPC received 22 stitches from a fight with an Albion guard, and so he does +45% damage against Albion (probably due to his grudge) but has a 30% longer wanted time (presumably because of his identifiable scar).

And a citizen named Lynn Davis once resuscitated her uncle by punching him in the heart. She does +200% melee damage. Lady can punch people into and out of unconsciousness.


There's even an adrenaline junkie who has a trait of +100% damage but has a secondary trait of may die randomly.
