    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Yes, the DLC expansions are a must.
  2. Far Cry 5 seemed decent. I remember going through hoops trying to get HDR working with Mass Affect Andromeda; but it was easy with AC: Origins and Far Cry 5. Hopefully the tide has turned now and more games will have decent support.

    Far Cry 5

    And glorious it is too. I didn't know of Hammock until I played Far Cry 5, but they've been one of my most played artists on Spotify in the last few weeks. They're awesome.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I'm rubbish at fast paced games but I loved the combat in this; and once I got to grips with it (it feels overwhelming and disjointed at the start) it felt quite easy on Normal. I died a handful of times in my play-through; mostly during times I wasn't concentrating and made silly mistakes. The game does a good job of making you feel like a bad-ass; but at the same time it does punish you if you don't have your wits about you; so in that sense it doesn't feel too easy?! Not sure if I'm explaining that very well. The switch window felt pretty massive to me. Even during the hectic moments It always felt as though if I played defensively for a few seconds I could gather my thoughts and come up with a good approach to the battles. It was really fun. I know the end-game content is harder; and I still haven't tackled much of the optional realms. I'm not sure if that sort of grind is up my alley so now that I've finished the story I think I'll leave it there. I thought the game was brilliant.
  5. Ah yes of course, it's turn based isn't it. I think I was getting the combat mixed up with some of the other RTwP games released lately. I might just crack on and play it to see how I get on, if it's turn based then it shouldn't feel too overwhelming and might be OK with the pad (playing on PC, but on the TV).
  6. Are you able to play this with minimal party micro-management? I tend to get bogged down and frustrated with that kind of stuff. I realise I'd be missing out on a lot of a combat nuance (it looks like it can get quite tactical); but if they can pretty much do their own thing while I concentrate on my main character that'd be ideal for me.

    A friend of mine has stopped playing, and is giving up on the game for this reason. Can you remap the buttons perhaps? I mentioned this to him but he's moved on to other games now. I experienced some discomfort during a long session retrying a specific section; but otherwise I've been OK.

    Frightened Rabbit - Scott Hutchison missing

    I'm devastated Have never been this affected by the death of someone I don't know.

    Thanks. I've done a lot of exploration and side quests; frequently travelling back to other areas after unlocking powers. According to the map I've completed 74% of Midgard; but I haven't visited Muspelheim; and I think there's another realm that I've unlocked but haven't visited yet.

    Took a while for this to feel natural for me. I thought about remapping, but decided to stick with it in the end. But yeah, it's definitely something I struggled with for a good while.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Oh man, it took a while for this to click with me but I'm getting there now. I was really struggling with the combat for a while. I couldn't quite pull off the moves that I wanted to and it all felt a bit stressful and haphazard; but it's starting to come together now and it's nice to think of doing something and have your fingers instinctively carry out the patterns. Feels great. I do feel like I should ready up on Kratos' back story and also the mythology stuff. It's passing me by somewhat, and although I'm enjoying the interactions with father and son; I have no idea what the references to Kratos' past mean or any of the lore stuff that's coming up. Any good links that can help with that?

    My PS4 Pro won't recognise the disc I managed to get it to load once after re-inserted when I first got the error, but no manner of inserting is getting it to recognise the disc now. It detects that it's a GoW disc, but errors when I try to load. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Hope Smyths returns policy is OK.

    This is the first console game I've ordered for release day since my Gamecube days. I'm used to going digital on PC; so the anticipation of the postie coming with a physical disc is slightly nostalgic Can't wait to get stuck in, despite really enjoying Horizon at the moment.
