Noobtoob's Week in Gaming: 9/4/2018
  • More Dark Souls 2. Pretty much done with the snowy wonderland, got the Ivory Crown. The Ivory King was a very satisfying boss. Showed up blind the first time and got slaughtered. Explored everywhere and rolled in with 6 NPCs and destroyed him. Don't really want to do the last DLC. I went back and found the Belfry Gargoyles. They died to single Crystal Soul Spears. Swatting bugs, feeling done. Never gonna buy the remaster at full price, the Souls itch has been scratched.

    One last thing: Duh fuck is up with trophies in the DLC? I have murdered the shit out of two DLCs and received zero trophies. I blame Rom.
  • Horizon Zero Dawn - I went through and platted it. A really easy game to plat. The story was OK if not a bit predictable, like everything with this game. The story is basically the same as Mass Effect with a few tweaks here and there. I was a bit disappointed with the final boss fight as they didn't even try to do anything unique, and in fact just recycled a fight from about halfway through the game. Everything about this game is a polished version of something ripped from another game, and offers nothing unique or special of its own. I was thinking about whether or not I should do the DLC but my PS4 made the decision for me by funking out and demanding I do a factory reset, which left me with only my Horizon saves that I had in the cloud, which unfortunately were quite a ways back so I thought fuck it, that's the end of Horizon for me for now.

    Mad Max - Seeing this for free on PSN reminded me I bought the disc version ages ago and prompted me to restart it. I'm enjoying it so far, but 3 Ubi-formula games in a row is starting to grind me down. The towers in this game are hot air balloons and the map is not quite as obnoxious as an Ubi game in its heyday, but there's still a fair bit of busywork and repetitive fetch quests and fortresses. I do like that the fortresses and camps actually have rewards beyond just ticking off a box on your to do list, in the form of car or project parts that allow you to mod your car or base in some way. So that's good.

    Monster Hunter World - I jumped in to check out the Spring Event. If you're still after gold crowns, this is your chance. But like before, nothing is fuelling me to do more yet. I have all the best gear already. Some higher end rewards or new trophies might get me back in. I don't care about showing people my dance emotes that cost $5 a pop. Hopefully they release some sort of G variant.

Howdy, Stranger!
