    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    'Give me a challenge' is the third difficulty level, right? I'm finding lots of late game stuff to be a serious challenge even with health and rage fully upgraded. The Muspelheim and Niflheim content is really tough and the Valkyrie fights have taken me loads of practice and perseverance. I still easily get wiped out in a couple of hits by some purple-bar level 8 Revenants or Dark Elf Lords. Either I'm really shit or you're really good. Probably the former, admittedly.

    Rota down! My hands were fucking trembling and the controller actually slippery with sweat when I got her down to her last bar of health.

    The dwarven favour subquests are actually really well crafted dungeons, aren't they? Even the optional little islands all over Midgard have some great puzzles and carefully constructed progression going on. While some have compared God of War's world and systems a little unfavourably to those of Breath of the Wild, I think it's also the case that God of War offers much more in the way of self-contained caves and mines and other explorable interiors that are massively more varied and better integrated into the world than any of Zelda's dungeons or shrines. Is there any point of no return I should be aware of in the main quest? Still have lots of optional stuff to do, I think, but I'm about to head to

    Next part that's completely annihilating me is Edit: did it. Fuck yeah. The adrenaline playing this is obscene. It's a third person melee version of Doom.

    Well, that's a combined ... five or six hours on that fight so far and I'm gonna have to admit defeat and move on for now. Just don't have it in me, it seems! Lots more places in Midgard to practice.

    Oh, I thought you meant Kratos's light and heavy runic attacks. Also could you put what you're getting at in spoiler tags because I've tried what you said and nothing special happened other than her getting stunned.

    How do you mean? When I use the first runic attack when she's sleeping, she wakes up before I can use the second. And it does about a quarter of damage to one of her six health bars.

    It's Geirdriful I've been doing today. If she's one of the easier ones then ... yikes. The great thing about them is that they force you to completely re-evaluate the equipment and runes you're using, and force you to learn the exact times to use certain moves. Button mash and you're dead in seconds. I mean, I'm still dead in seconds most of the time, but slightly more seconds!

    Yeah, everything so far has been surmountable eventually and the combat is tough but really satisfying now it's become intuitive. These are the first encounters I'm having to spend hours on with no progress. I have most of the attack patterns down but a couple of mistakes and I'm dead. Makes them feel colossally powerful though which is great.

    Valkyrie fights are insane. Best I've managed is getting a third of this one's health down, and that's after a few hours of practising. I will learn this fucker's attack patterns. I half suspect the idea is you come back at the end when you're fully upgraded and work your way through them then, but I'd rather space them out between story stuff.

    Bah, that's unfortunate. I'm still in the 'feels like it could be an unforgettable videogame' moment - expectations somewhat lowered for what's ahead, then.

    Ran very badly on my standard PS4 at first, freezing and stuttering very frequently, but I was downloading some crazy 6gb update while I played. Can't confirm whether the update is what fixed it, but the game has run very smoothly since the update installed, with only occasional noticeable drops when moving between areas.

    Feels like I'm rapidly approaching endgame without being able to explore loads of optional stuff or even fast travel yet. The game's structure is kind of unfathomable. Can someone who's completed it give me an idea how far I am through the main story as a rough percentage?

    I too got bored of Horizon and gave up. New Tomb Raiders are OK but don't do anything special. Didn't even bother with Lost Legacy. I also felt kind of similar to how you feel early on in God of War - clearly well crafted and technologically impressive but nothing outstanding. Then it completely won me over. I think I started to change my mind just before arriving at the lake, though, and certainly by the time I'd started exploring it, and then pretty much everything since then has been fantastic. If you're still not feeling it soon after the lake, though, maybe you are just burned out on third person action adventures. In a way, it's the apex of everything third person adventures of all kinds have been working towards.
