Holy shit, the storms in this game are amazing
This is the best post-apocalyptic wasteland I've explored since Fallout 3
Yeah, I really started loving the brawling once you unlock the limb snapping counter. Those are so satisfyingYeah the brawling and car combat feels so satisfying. The game is beautiful to boot which is why it's a little puzzling WB would go the effort in supporting Mordor for PS4 Pro and not Mad Max when the game looks beautiful as it is now and I couldn't imagine what Pro and 4K could do for it!
The game criminally is absent post-release content when considering the films could of offered a wealth of ideas. Gyrocopter?! Bikes?! War-Rigs?! The Citadel?! Considering the development of this though and the behind the scene stuff I'm not surprised but still, a missed opportunity.

Actually I'd argue the combat evolves the Arkham formula in smart ways. It makes distance matter because you don't fly across the area to counter and hit. It makes timing matter because those bone breakers require a perfectly timed parry. It forces you to prioritize and parse out your attacks due to those chain finishers and fury mode.
Is there a New Game Plus, or a combat arena somewhere in the world? Or a post-game area when you can always find enemies to fight?
Just finished it. I like this game more than I probably should.
I was a fan of the Batmobile in Arkham Knight, so I felt right at home playing this.
Though it kind of sucks that you don't get the jacket til after you beat the game.
Yay; someone else to talk about this with!
At the moment I'm installing things in Jeet's base, and I'm trying to concentrate on taking out bases in the region - I think I've done most of them now. Thought I took down a Top Dog camp last night as well, but maybe I got it wrong as I don't have a trophy for it. I have started to ignore fighting random cars for the most part, as it can take a fair bit of time and the scrap reward is only usually two collectible pieces. I'll maybe do it more later when I've upgraded the Opus more.
Also - what are the Archangel cars? When I go to the vehicle menu and press triangle to see the Archangels, I don't have the option to upgrade anything or choose one of the cars. It kept telling me to install an upgrade, but I didn't have the option.
As far as I could tell, archangel cars are just presets of the magnum opus. They unlock when you use the right configurations. You just need the right parts to be used at the same time.
Beat a couple of Top Dog camps last night. I quite liked the first boss fight as most enemies are pretty easy, but are they all exactly the same? I also worked out what the game wanted me to do with The Jack, which was kind of dumb as I already had upgrades beyond that car build at that point. To fully clear an area do you have to search all scrap locations as well as take down snipers, scarecrows, camps etc? I've moved on to Gutgash's territory, and the only thing I don't like about the structure is that sometimes the game needs you to do side activities rather than letting you do them if you wish.
One of my favorite games this gen, it does nothing special, but it is just good mindless fun. I was thinking, was this same Mad Max game the one that Cory Barlog was working on?
Man, it's a shame how much the frame rate shits itself in Pink Eye's territory. It's really affecting my enjoyment. Also, the bases here are a little too tricky for me and I'm not sure I can be bothered taking them down. And I went into a tunnel to retrieve a War Rig on a mission for Jeet, but I couldn't progress as there was this big container thing and I couldn't see a way to get up on it. I have really enjoyed it, but I'm running out of steam a bit so I think I need to start wrapping things up now.
