I'll order it on Amazon. GT Sport is having 2 weeks of my favorite races and I had not finished Tlou2 yet, no rush.

The box looks nice, but is there a huge day 1 patch? It's $10 extra for the physical edition. If it's no good with a day 1 patch, then might as well get digital. I assume it's just the standard flimsy empty box (no manual etc) Box art is very nice though.

The raw fidelity of the game's graphics is decent, but the art direction is superb.






Someone please show me a game that does grass, leaves, and other foliage at this density level, in an open world, on horseback, and runs as well as this. Please.

Thanks. "General bug fixes and improvements". I might just go for the digital edition, less hassle with this corona business.

How are you supposed to get anything done in this game...

I swear, it's every ten minutes I have to stop and look at something but the sunsets, every damn time...

I just can't help myself at sunrise too...

The golden hour is pure gold in this game...

It never ceases to get my attention...

I have been taking a lot of prints, first game doing so much, prettiest I have seem.

I wish I could show it in motion in HDR but it's thee best fire in video games, it even has translucent blue and green flames when seen up close and dances according to the wind, the brightness of it blows out and reduces depending on the time of day and it's all fluid, minute by minute as you fast forward the time in photo mode. It's just another little detail that is blowing my mind like the first time I seen ageing NPC's. 

...awe, it just looks like a blob of generic video game flame here on my laptop. I'll be back with a GIF if i can figure out how to do it.

I did found the fire in the island escape on TLOU2 to be the best I've ever seen.

I thought I'd take a moment to compare this to other openworld games I've played.

Combat is significantly above that of the Witcher 3, both in complexity and in quality. You have dodge, perfect dodge, parry, and perfect parry. Enemies keep you on your toes with varied attacks, and aren't pushovers. Bowmen will shoot at you from behind their melee counterparts. You can do horse archery to a decent extent. Armors are varied enough to offer different combat playstyles, like God of War. Witcher 3's combat is just slow and bland compared to this game.

Like I've said many times before, stealth is really awful. I mean, I don't expect high quality stealth in an open world game, but this is still pretty bad, even by open world standards. BotW, and Horizon both had stealth at least on the level of Sekiro. I'm not expecting Splinter Cell or Thief levels of stealth gameplay here, but c'mon. Enemies really shouldn't take 3-5 seconds to go from suspicious to "THERE HE IS! GET HIM!", when you're not even crouching or trying to hide.

Exploration and mobility is fantastic in most cases, but I find myself missing the ability to outright climb anything like I could do in BotW. I don't know why game designers still stick to the outdated method of putting handholds on cliffsides for you to specifically use. The ability to call your horse at anytime from anywhere is great. Even in Witcher 3 calling your horse was a pain. Roach would often get stuck or confused, and refuse to come to you. In BotW I think your horse had to be a specific distance close to you, or you couldn't call it. Lame. GoT just does the horse calling mechanic better than any other open world game I've played. I know this is just a small QoL improvement here, but a little bit goes a long way. There's a ton of small exploration QoL add ons in this game that I love. Burnt villages issue smoke from afar. Hot Springs have steam rising up from far off, as well as the telltale Maple tree that you can spot from a distance. Birds lead you to points of interest. The wind shows you where your next objective is. You could just turn off the entire HUD and find your way around in this game pretty easily. That. Is. Good. Game. Design!

I can't judge the story yet, since I haven't finished it, but I've really enjoyed the missions I've gone on so far. The writing on these missions is short, to the point, and interesting. Witcher 3 (and Metro Exodus) has these ultra long winded, paragraph long, exposition conversations that just overstay their welcome. On the flipside, Link barely talks to anyone, or more like he listens. Aloy has some good conversations, but for some reason, I didn't find hers as interesting as the ones in GoT.



Anyone else forget this isn't GTA and accidentally slash your horse?

Also didn't realize til recently that the touchpad has multiple functions based on swipe direction. My life is complete now that I can bow respectfully and stylishly sheath my sword to my heart's content.
