Speaking of the Hunting Grounds, how 'level appropriate' are they? Perhaps that's a more general question about the quest levels.

I just stumbled across the first one, I'm not quite level 10 and they show as level 17... does that mean I should wait? Or just give it a shot to see how it goes? At least now I see where this "I got all Blazing Suns" talk comes from. Probably not in my future, though.  icon_frown

It's probably listed already upthread, but what are the "must-have" skills?

The one that lets you sneak attack from hiding places, and the one that lets you attract the attention of enemies by whistling. These are the two skills you should buy immediately. You can get through a lot of encounters without fighting at all by using these two skills in combination.

That stealth / critical hit skill is great. Was just wondering about the lure, thanks for the tip.  icon_cool

My only minor gripe is sometimes not being able to tell when a monster is lurking around.

Are you using your focus (click the right stick)?  It should highlight all enemies in the area.

Yup, even thru terrain and such. I also find I can hear them (me, not her) before I actually see them sometimes.

Here's what happened before Nier: Automata's story began.

FYI, a bit spoilery for the two games that came before.

The only other real complaint I see that's left is the constant weapon breaking which I supposed could be adjusted through a patch as well.

This. What a PITA.

34 hours?  I wish I had that much playtime, work is a bear right now and with Wife Time I don't usually get to start Play Time until 10 o'clock or so and by then my fried brain only has about two hours left in it, max. Only at level 5 and up in Mother's Heart about to actually start "The Proving" and enjoying the crap out of this gorgeous game... all kinds of awesome.  icon_cool

Holy crap, not exactly what I was expecting. Imagine a what... Galaga, Thexder, twin-stick, Bayonetta mash-up opening sequence? Then on to what was in the demo, more in your face / side scrolling / top down madness... and then just before the Goliath, dead.  Oh and "This game does not auto-save. Play the game to learn how to save." which from Googling means making it to an "Access Point" it would seem and something I failed to do. Late enough I will try again tomorrow night. From the beginning. Sheesh.  icon_cool

For the WiiU version, curious what controllers people are using. Just used the gamepad last night which was... okay... but it seems the screen on it never gets used? It just sat there and blinked a message about playing it on the screen only. I have a pro controller that I'm recharging as it was deader than the proverbial doornail and the normal Wii controller and nunchuk as well.

I started using the pro controller because I read there was no use of the screen on the pad so I didn't see any reason to use it.  I find the pro controller much better to hold.

Thanks. Switched over to the Pro once it was recharged and doing fine with it.  thumbsup

Didn't realize that Nier is coming to Steam on the 17th. So an option for any PS4-less looking to play it.

This game on a 4k TV with HDR is one the most beautiful, graphically amazing games I've seen in a long time. The gameplay videos on YouTube do not do this game justice.

Very nice, indeed... 75" 4K doesn't hurt either.  icon_cool

Finished up Virginia on the PS4. Still not really sure what in heck I played, nor how I got the small number of trophies that I did. Or what in the heck the ones I didn't even mean. Sure, it's a "single-player first-person thriller set in a small town with a secret" and you "experience a missing person investigation through the eyes of graduate FBI agent Anne Tarver" but dang. No dialogue. Disjointed because... flashbacks? No puzzles but rather points of interactivity that move the story... forward? Heck if I know. Such an odd duck.  paranoid

Just watched the 3rd episode last night and I'm not sure what to think, especially if the finale is all those things the Polygon article mentions. Out of curiosity, do they ever explain what "The OA" means? I have a guess but it's not really based on anything so far other than... guessing.

So I ended up ordering this as well after reading all this. Now I just need to dust off and recharge my Vita. Oh, and the "Lionheart" version was the same price as the regular one on Amazon, so went that route.  thumbsup

I'll never touch the MP, but would highly recommend it just on the strength of the SP campaign.

Good to know, I'm the same way and it was the only reason I picked it up at half price. Firmly embedded in my backlog at the moment, though.  ninja

35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: December 13, 2016, 02:01:01 PM
Was bummed to find out that they removed some trophies from the PS4 version of the game. In the Geothermal Valley had spent some time checking out the well, which seemed to be expecting me to jump into it. Searching online found an Achievement (and alleged trophy) called "For my next trick" for performing a dive into it. When I finally managed to do that and nothing happened, I found it was one of three that aren't there:

1) For my next trick - jump into a well
2) Henny Penny - Fall to your death from the lift (Baba Yaga)
3) Why did the chicken cross the Vale - Ride the lift back to the other side (Baba Yaga)

What does it say when the game starts up - something about a FF game for fans and people who have never played one before? I wonder how much of what Gratch is feeling is because of this? Found this article where they talk about some of the things they did to accommodate both demographics.
