    Yep, finished them all yesterday. When you can control a Thunderjaw, Ravanger and Sawmouth permanently and make them fight for you is great. I might have done like 5-6 main missions. Those side missions will take you all around Robin Hood's barn. Fuck those Rockbreakers tho.

    I'm level 18 and the T. rex looking machine so strong smh kept dying I'll fight t later

    The thunder jaw is like lv 27 but don't sleep. Can still give trouble even at 35+. Main thing is to knock off his weapon and tie his bitch ass down and fuck him up. First time I fought him was like 27 and was tough as shit lol.

    These death scenes and phony af tho. Shit is on par with Talia dying in the Dark Knight Rises.

    Dope ass game, gameplay on point...

    Does a good job of keeping me interested in the story and side quest's...

    The beasts are fantastic, so far living up to the hype and expectations for me...

    Cool game. Story takes a hit as the characters animations are too bland with the dialogue. Like watching a robot give an exposition ar times, hard to get into the story with that. The lip syncing seems off at times as well.

    I think this game being a combination of everything we like about open world games is a sign. A sign that we need more innovation with this genre of games. It's time for a dev to get bold and next this shit to another level. Monolith seems to be doing that with Shadow Of War.

    Game was an easy Plat. Cool story, great gameplay; Definitely got my money's worth doing all the missions (main and side quests). At the same time, it's not worth a second playthrough to me. Until you get the the Unlimited Fast Travel kit, the map is too damn big to be exploring all over again.

    Map traversal is one of the few flaws in the game...

    So far Striders are the only "vehicle", don't know if that changes...

    The walk to Meridian is ridiculous...

    Far into the game now. I gotta say shit picks up and I'm now genuinely interested. Kinda deep even.

    One thing im finding unimmersive is how well everybody speaks proper English. The devs didn't bother with giving the world it's own language for good reasons, I'm sure. But it would of been a nice little touch for the game.

    Hey, that NW region of the map goes HAM. I was running like a bitch trying to get through the there.

    Override a broad head. Nothing wrong with map traversal at all. You got to know how to move through the world. I am in the desert but haven't went to Meridian yet but a mount will be needed.

    People beat it already yet I am over 30 hours in and just having fun. I want to get that ancient armor before I finish.

    It's much better than TW3, Fallout or Elder Scrolls. You mention Shadow of War but Shadow of Mordor had a bland world with nothing it it and repetitive combat. I doubt Shadow of War will innovate anything as it just rips off Batman and Assassin's Creed unsuccessfully. Horzion has better combat than Shadow of Mordor or any game similar before it. From a control and combat standpoint it is on a much higher level. You sound like you are nitpicking when most games outside of The Last of Us or Uncharted have that robotic feeling. Just look at Mass Effect. The game isn't perfect, but it has raised the bar for open world games. GTA has terrible controls, but no one says anything. Also Shadow of Mordor/War does not have conversations and all dialog is through cut scenes or characters talking freely without zooming in on their faces. Why would characters need their own language when the game takes place in Colorado? LOL!

    that Elizabet chick said they left shit behind to teach ppl abt their civilization, and since they're "gods" to these ppl, they mimick their language..

    I assume..

    also, these machines need to drop better loot, defeated a storm bird for the first time and I don't think the loot was worthy of the battle and resources I used

    Wish this was more indepth. Had much more potential.

    Oh, I nitpick the hell outta videogames. Guilty as charged on that.

    I give Monolith those props for its nemesis system. It's the newest thing since Kojimas expanded AI in stealth games.

    Horizon combat is best for what its trying to do in the hunter niche but that's it. Outside of that, Phantom Pain controls alone would shit on this. I love how fluidly you're able to move in that game.

    Horizons biggest selling point is that it's lore is original. It's holding up because the gameplay does everything it's suppose to do. The rope gun is the only new mechanic it brings to the table, but the simplest platforming I've played yet. But despite the stuff i could nitpick, its still worth supporting and playing.

    Around level 21-22 you can farm the shit out of the tyrannosaurus robot for purple mods and shards

    Then (if you've been saving the robot hearts and not selling those) go to a trader and pick up the purple weapons/armors and throw the purple mods in
    Quick wit the hands... Readdyyyyyy

    You technically can't get it until the mission or 2 before the final mission tho.. cuz the last piece is in the mountain. By the time I got the armor I already beat like 90% of the game. Just had to do the last 2 corrupt zones and a few side missions I missed. Had a blast playing tho.

    I usually rocked stealth gear set with mods 90% of the time til I got that armor.

    Thankfully, you can't get it until then because it would be cheap af. I wonder if they'll let you use it in the DLC?

    They've been quiet, but the game keeps getting patches so they might. I never went back to Carja after the end, but I'd reckon there's all kinds of content they could base around that. Fallen religious city with no ruler it is now. Then theres that arena it has. She had dudes trying to holla, maybe go somewhere with that. The whole area needs to rebuild and theirs still the stigma of being from the different regions. Plenty of shit to play off.

    I think the sequel is gonna take place in California somewhere, but it should follow Sylus instead of Aloy. We could personally play his descsnt into the relatable villian he'll probably end up being. Then bring Aloy back for the third. Idk, just a thought.

    I Really Want To Get This Game But Last Time I Went Out On A Limb And Picked Up Something Different I Got Stuck With A Copy Of Fallout 4..Once These MFers Had Me Crafting Chairs And Beds I Was Like MAN GTFOH...Shit Seemed Like A Chore

    I'm Old School I Usually Only Play The Campaign And Then I'm Out..Don't Really Play Online Too Much Unless Its Street Fighter

    With That Being Said....Is This Shit Like A Hack And Slash Within A Sandbox?

    I'm Thinking I Won't Have The Patience For This Shit...That's Why Steered Clear Of The WItcher And Bloodborne Even With The Rave Reviews
