Really enjoying it.

The only issues/things that could do with fixing

1. Some FPS drops
2. Audio at times doesn't work, Loud Deacon, WHY IS HE SO SHOUTY.
3. When you fast travel, I don't like the fact he's off his bike outside camp, I have to get on the bike and ride in... some AC3 levels of fast travel :(
4.More Missions at the same time, from the same camp. Now if this was just fast travel in normal games I wouldn't mind, but obviously when you fast travel then you have to go get more fuel etc... so I understand why they spread the missions out, but it doesn't work as I would have liked.
5. Levelling up seems a little unbalanced... and it seems to take ages to level up a camp, but that maybe because I am playing on easy (Yeah I know :D

The hordea are still scary as hell, but I've killed 3 smaller ones (of about 20-80) so far... dont know if I will be able to handle the stress of a big horde... we shall see :D. Played the game for at least 6-7 hours this weekend (probably more), cannot wait to play more.

Want to get 100% but not sure if playing on easy will prevent it in one play through.

I didn't find any difference between leveling on Hard versus Normal or the Camp exp progression, no need to worry about that. If there is a difference it is slight enough not to notice but I suppose it is easier to get ears so that could be said to help but only very slightly.

Finally finished my normal save this evening and enjoyed it so, so much. I played the first half of the game twice, once on Hard mode and then on normal and it was just as enjoyable the second time around because if he great gameplay loop that one falls into but I have to say one thing, the second two third of the game is so, so much better than the first third, after 5 ish hours on normal mod (15ish on hard) it starts to ramp up and doesn't stop getting better until the end with the odd pacing hitch now and then and really hits it's stride around 15- 25 hours in dependig on difficulty level but as long as one isn't rushing it it is near perfect pacing for the most part. It feels really down to earth and I loved that, it's refreshing for an open world game, their is no rags to riches, massive world ending stakes, it's like a journey through few weeks of Deacons life two years after society crumbles. The hoards are just amazing and easily the best part of the game next to it's addicting loop, often felt bad for killing them after some story beats, esspically the "newta" which I won't spoil. I still hold it to an 8/10 with most of the points still holding true and it would be an easy 9 if they fixed the performance, tidied a few things up, increased stunted progression and knee capped systems from the start, shortened loading among a few others. The game never stops opening up too well into end game and even new content continues after the credits roll with new unlocks ontop of the stuff you may have missed. 

Not every game needs to be a narrative masterpiece to be sometjing that will hook you and lend you joy, not that this doesn't tell an enjoyable story, it is well above serviceable and often touching and gets emotional reactions it is tryong to evoke thanks to the incredible main cast. After Sekerio (10/10) and REmake2 (9/10), Days gone takes third place for me in 2019 and will probanly be my second platinum because I still have a stong itch to play, still makes a good stretch ahead of Ace combat 7 and Metro Exodus, the latter two I would reckon are solid 7's and the remainder of my top 5 when counting The messanger ps4 as a 2018 release. 

Still can't believe reviewers were giving this 5's, or 3's, even the 6's make no sense albiet a little more understandable. It is an anomoly , I am sure had political motivatiosn to some extent with all the right wing stuff said in the game (it is really heavy and even goes into some strong evangelical territory, reviews do not take that stuff kindly as seen with Far cry 5 and unlike that game there is no comic relief to offset it here) and has reminded me not to trust aggregates and gaming media outside of the fun of it.

Almost done with the game and for me it is at least a 80. What really hurt the game is that it takes around 10 to 15 hours to really get good and the performance issues gets in the way. Overall though,it is better than 72. I am hoping for days gone 2 and I am gonna have high expectations from it. Working on the platinum trophies.



platin trophy = 1 Days Gone-Theme and 1 Days Gone-Avatar for free.

interesting is: Three Weeks at the Top of the UK, Swiss and New Zealand Charts for Days Gone. Maybe Japan too ?!




Death Stranding-Release: November 8!

How do you apply for this? And, yes! This is the kinda shit we need for platinums but screw the badge of honour crap, some exclusive content in game should be the next goal for developers to add in, like a secret level, a goofy weapon or some old school cheat unlocks. Perhaps tied to the trophies themselves in some meta way.

Thanks for the mini-review. Sounds like a combination of technical issues, and a right wing leaning story kept it from getting higher. I'll either pick it up when it goes on sale, or as soon as I finish Atelier Rorona Plus. Consider it spot #3 in my current backlog.

That and some story issues the first third of the game as well as some odd cutscene fade ins/outs, long loading on boot and it takes a while for the gameplay loop to get going, bout the same for the story. Playing on hard really offset that and gave a very survival feel to the things but in hindsight that was a terrible decision that cost me so much time in guerrilla warfare with hoards (also a bad idea takin g them on in the first half of the game on any difficulty) and no substitute for the way the game opens uporganically since I went back to normal after I was already thourghally addicted to the gameplay loop and knew where to put my skill points what weapons, items and traps to unlock from locations, I fell back into it almost instantly and loved it til the end. It pays off really well story wise with some stumbles along the way and is a damn good game, like really great stuff ties well together just don't expect a narrative masterpiece, more of a down to earth character focused action film but drawn out through game lenght, it's actually far more than servicable and the characters are top notch after you get done with the first third that seems there as a very long introductorypiece with throw away characters aside from the main three or maybe one or two on top of that, not to say they arent enjoyable. 

Honestly, I'd say don't hold back and buy as soon as possible because they released it in Spring for a reason, this is when you play a game like this and not when the summer happiness winds you up to an elevated mood where sober tone don't hit or when heavy hitters start bombarding the market toward Autumn but I know A plague tale will be more up your ally, so perhaps that first until a flash sale.

Was playing this this morning to test a new patch and performance seems solid on the everything north of the southern most map but still a bit funky around that general area. Impressive improvments and they are getting there as long as they don't do another roll back patch.

10 gig patch today, this is male it or break it time. If it's a roll back like 1.07 then pretty sure this game will never be fixed but if it improves even a little on 1.08 it might just make the game an 9 in my eyes.
