The Side Quest have been fun so far. Exploring the Lake has taken up most of my hours currently lol. Almost missed entire section too before I was about to move on with the story which came with even more surprises I did not expect. Helps back tracking to check if you have missed any details. You can come across much stronger foes when you go back to certain areas too which threw me off. Taking on a higher level enemy is manageable if you get your parries and movement down but getting ganged up makes makes thing a little tougher. Will have to come back and get my revenge later on >,>
Quick question about upgrades. At a couple points in the game now, specifically after waking Jormundgandr and returning from Alfheim, I got a buff to the axe. Is this just a flat damage up that's gotten lost in my armour upgrades or did it actually do something specific?
Anyone else sit on a bunch of experience points before unlocking several upgrades at once? Feel like learning too many skills can be a bit overwhelming so I wait till I'm more comfortable. Some of the more zoning type attacks feel awesome. Evading into sweeps and heavy punches makes crowd control super satisfying.

Just gotten past the Stranger fight, which was ridiculously epic and I had a huge smile on my face for the whole thing. I think I'm going to enjoy this game.
Yup, this is where I got to. Man alive the combat is fun. I've got it set on Hard which is...hard. Very hard. I died about 3 or 4 times during the first (tutorial lol) fight and each encounter is taking a good few goes. The Dark Souls comparisons were not made in error: even though I'm dying all the time I'm still having fun as I know it was me strawberry floating up, not the game being unfair, that got me killed.

I've been saving most of my XP for upgrades for Atreus. None of the Kratos upgrades seem as good.
