    Just purchased and am currently downloading. Did I make the right choice? How is the game holding up since it was released? Also got some funk to burn while I play.

    That's good to know. Used to play the shit out of video games in middle school and college and they have really turned into a small hobby anymore. It's like pulling teeth to buy a game these days because I'm afraid I won't ever finish them and am wasting money.

    If you do the game justice and explore everywhere and do everything this game is a masterpiece, but if you do the main quests you are doing yourself a great disservice.

    Man oh man, each main quest (assuming I'm really close to the end) has a twist.

    Level 43, gonna try to finish up finding all the special items before I go on. Gotta try to get that platinum before Tuesday!

    now that i've finished the game, i've watched some videos on how to kill some of the machines. i've realized i played the game sooooooooo much differently than everyone else.

    first off, i think i used 2 mounts the entire game. i ran and fast traveled everywhere. never attacked anyone on a mount either.
    second, i never used the ropecaster. for the glinthawks i primarily used arrows.
    third, i didn't use the wire traps. i finally started using the sling around the last 3 missions to kill things. but, everything was arrows for me for pretty much the entire game.

    one other thing i forgot to add. i was constantly jumping during fights. i mean. the split second i landed, i was in the air again with another arrow. i never fought in real time. it was always slowed down. i saw videos of people close up fighting thunderjaw, but i was always like 100 feet away jumping and firing.

    that was pretty good. faster than my thunderjaw fights by far. i swear i would spend 15-20 minutes a fight easy.

    Finally beat it. Definitely cracked my all time top 10 list

    Sunk almost 60 hours of my life into this game. 2nd longest game I've ever played.

    Just started, and all I find myself doing is running around hunting. I'm loving it. Haven't even went to the proving grounds, or whatever it's called

    Edit: Also playing on very hard. Can't have BlazingRebel one-up me

    I'm 70 hours in, level 43, and on the main quest "Maker's End" which i'm guessing is less than half way through.

    15 hrs in and my main quests are Revenge of the Nora and Seeker at the gates. Taking my sweet time with everything. Also, just had my first battle with fire bellow backs (3 of them). Really enjoyed sneaking around, taking them out one by one.

    Oh, and I haven't fast travelled yet. I'm going to see how far I can make it in the game before I feel the need to do it. There's just so much you can do on the way to where you want to go.

    Just finished the main story line and at about 80% completion. Awesome game and loved the story overall. Question on the final post credit scene. Obviously it is setting up for a DLC or sequel but what are Sylen's intentions? I saw where some have said it is Ted Faros reincarnated who wants a reboot once again. Seems weird that he seeks all this knowledge but the machine that he is taking HADES to is the one that produces mass machines.

    Ok just started up, about to do the proving. Are there any crafting items I absolutely shouldn't sell or any upgrades/weapons I should be trying to get?

    Is there any real reason to horde resources? Or should I be selling more of the shit I loot to make money?

    Depends on what arrows or ammo you use the most honestly.

    Fuck off on this hunting challenge where you have to get 10 grazers in 90 seconds. Best time was 1:37, had to just move on.

    What armor is everyone using?

    Tears away armor/components to leave them more vulnerable to other attacks. Also quickly removes mounted heavy weapons so you can pick them up and use them. Get used to switching between arrow types and weapons in the bigger machine fights

    I haven't crossed into Meridian yet so the toughest fight I've had was with a stalker. I picked up a heavy weapon off of a bandit though in a camp. Didn't really like it though.

    heavy weapons are really useful once you start facing the tough robots.

    also agree with others, get used to switching arrows, bombs, traps, ect.
