I'm finding it very well written so far. Gives me a Baldur's Gate nostalgic vibe.
Hawkwing74, can you give us an update once you've finished it? Maybe I've been spoiled by years of Bethesda games, but 40 hours seems really short to me; I can't wrap my head around spending money on such a short game. Does it have a lot of narrative branches / replayable?
Hawkwing74 wrote:Got 12 hours in so far. It has a fair amount of talking and narrative but as far as I can tell, 3 main paths. You can side with one or the other faction, or try to just kill everyone.
The skill/fighting system is definitely different from DnD. Bit of a learning curve with that. There is an interesting crafting system I have recently unlocked.
Some people might like trying different teams. I have 7 characters so far but I use my favorite 4. One fight, got stuck on because the enemy had 2 tanks and I couldn't get to the spellcaster. My team is a bit melee heavy (3 melee, 1 ranged/heal) so had problems with this fight. My other 3 characters I don't use are a spellcaster, bard, and another melee.
I would not expect to replay it but I am really enjoying it. I'll update total hours played when I finish the campaign.

At three main branch paths and ~40 hours, that's roughly 120 which is decent, I'll likely end up getting this when I can. Is there any DLC?

It still falls squarely into the "Not Recommended" category (because any recommendation would come with heavy qualifications), but I'll probably knock this out and then have some fun with Bloodborne on PS4.superjawes wrote:I felt the same way about Dark Souls 1, it took me 10 plus hours to have any idea what as going on. It is one of the only games where I can watch a video or two on how to beat a boss and still spend 12+ attempts trying to beat the boss. I put about 45 hours into that game to get 1/4 of the way through it and just kind of stopped playing because I am not naturally talented at timing and reaction games. I loved the feeling of beating a new boss but hated the frustration of 12+ attempts to do it.I picked up Dark Souls III on the Steam sale, and that game is really bad at retaining new players. I can see the appeal, but there's basically no way for a completely new player to get into it without being either naturally talented or getting outside assistance. I'm honestly surprised that no one has one-upped From by making "Dark Souls, but accessible".

For the second time ever, I completed enough of the season journey to get the extra stash tab, and for the first time ever I completely cleared the season journey. I got my HoTA/IK Barbarian to GR level 82 and amassed a total of 568 paragon levels. Played on PC this time, but next time I might go back to PS4.
Those results pushed my non-seasonal paragon level from 807 to 856. Pretty successful season by my standards. Most of that was done over Thanksgiving and winter breaks.

We've been playing OW a lot lately. They've made some good balance changes, and they have so many promo events there is cool stuff to do most the time. Plus it's just a fun game. Moira ftw.

Admittedly I don't know much about WW1, so some of the facts snippets were interesting. Also, the "memorial" that shows when you die it an interesting add. Gives a sense of mortality to the whole thing.....even though it's a video game and you just go back to the last checkpoint and start over.
I appreciated the sense of homage the game paid to the war and the people that served/died in it.

superjawes wrote:I've been playing Bloodbrne, and it feels very, very strange...I like this one A LOT more than I did Dark Souls 3. It may be because I played most of DS3 and "get it" now, or it may be because I am only a few bosses in. Still, I find it ironic that I am somehow less frustrated by a From Software game that is generally considered harder than the rest.
