After 53 hours I completed my second playthrough on Very Hard difficulty.

Made another video out of fun. Hopefully enjoyable for those who watch.

Horizon: Nora Rebel!

Reposting this video montage someone else made, it's good.

... I'm pretty early-on in the story, still. Just did that "Nora revenge" on the east border of the map, but also went to the "Daytower" already.

I'm still using my original bow (or maybe the digital deluxe edition) bow and i feel somewhat underpowered - especially with regards to those fire breathing big beasts. Hell, it takes me 3 shots to down a boar.

Am i gonna get a better bow through story progress soon? Or does the game expect me to buy a new one?

you are in general expected to just buy new weapons.

and striking weak points in general is important.

yeah, i got that, but even if i hit their weak point with my regular bow (that doesn't do tear damage), i do like 29 instead of 20 damage.

But thanks, i'm always hesitant to buy gear in games where i feel like the game would hand me upgrades throughout the story.

But i got like 8000 metal shards already, so might as well spend em.

Ok finishing off the platinum didn't end up being as bad as I thought. 61 hrs total playtime. I think it's my first legit platinum not counting Telltale Games stuff.

Extremely polished for open world and first attempt too. I can't think of a single bug I ran into not to mention they were quick to push out patches. My main issue was story delivery was a bit...lets just say I'm not a fan of big info dumps and a lot of the back story was done in that way.

Still 9/10 for me as an overall package. Interested to see what they can do for a sequel now that they have the first game under their belt. GG Guerilla.

Normally I'd agree with you, I think California is the most overdone US setting, (when it was announced that GTAV would take place there I was super disappointed, for instance) but you should read the glyph that describes tales from people that have ventured to the Forbidden West. It doesn't sound like California and the surrounding regions remained at all unchanged, some descriptions make it sound barely earth-like. There are mentions of sprawling blue sand dunes, prairies with razor-sharp grasses with shivering black flowers, and an ancient city buried underneath "sour" water. I think I'm ok with them setting it in California if it gets that crazy.

well yeah if they do go there I expect them to do it well.
and given the setting there is plenty of flexibility in general to make things drastically different then our current world anyways.

Have 45 hours in this game and 65% finished, I am sad the game is almost finished. Cant believe Guerilla made this game, this is some CD project level shit and in some areas much better. Graphics, gameplay, story all top notch. Small issue is fighting humans, is so boring and has no challenge compared to fighting machines. And would be nice to be able to lock onto a enemy.

Only fitting that I hit level 50 today after slaying our former "friend" Nile . Honestly everything feels too easy after getting the ancient armor. Taking my time and looking for side quests before pushing on and completing the last few missions.

Just beat the game and that was one of the best game experiences in my life. A fine RPG with a world that is vivid and rich. And a thrilling sci-fi story.

Aloy is undoubtedly one of the best protagonists to ever grace a game. The emotions I'm feeling right now are hard to explain. All I know is that I experienced something beautiful and moving in her quest to understand her place in the world.

Guerilla congratulations and thank you so much for this masterpiece.

No concentration could be fun, but without mods it would probably be insufferable. How many times would you need to hit a canister for it to trigger?

You know I really wish there had been more in the way of gear progression. It felt like I made no progress and then hit a point and got a few extra bits all at once. That happened a couple times and that was that. It would've been nice to have more skins/enhanced stats.

How far am I through the main story if I have just reached Sunfall?

My wife was watching my play for a little while this morning, I was killing a group of mechs, and shooting at a LongLeg.

She said, blimey, that's a weird game!

It's funny how this game has people inventing ways to increase its challenge. After I realized Very Hard wasn't hard enough, I imposed a no crafting during combat rule and started playing with Aloy's Proving outfit.

I really hope we get a ng+ with a higher difficulty.

Platinumed (and 100%), which I have only done for 1 other game this gen (Bloodborne).

Easily my Goty for this year so far, and I can't wait for a now rumored DLC.

Congrats to GG, they really knocked it out of the park with Horizon Zero Dawn imo.

I just like the idea of revisiting that particular cast of characters in a different context. lol

An expansion with no further details was officially announced in the first 2 weeks sales press release, so it's not just a rumour.

At the end of the quest he did say that he would now go to the Forbidden West, which I suspect is going to be the sequel location.

The blue sand dunes is the Pacific Ocean
