All 8 Valkyries beaten to a pulp. The last one being the one in the mist which was a tough one when your mist bar is down by half by the time you reach her.

:slol: Meanwhile I got my arse handed to me by those 2 optional, high level (compared to me) wulver who appear somewhere on the lake after the water level recedes for the 2nd time.

Spent most of last night rowing about the lake and doing side missions, etc. The lake gameplay loop is *solid*.

Ben avoiding this thread due to spoilers, but my mate has almost 100% this. He only has one more trophy to pick up. Said it's an amazing game throughout.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here".

Tell Ben to get his gooseberry fool together and get it!

Was this game that got my brother-in-law to head out and get a PS4 after watching me play it and he's definitely not a gamer :lol: silly lad ended up getting the game bundled with a GT edition console rather than the GOW Pro console :fp:

Yeah I've just had about 10 tries and thought I'll come back and strawberry float her up good later :slol: can get her health to around 3/4 down at the cost of a resurrection stone.

Yeah, I’ve got an idea though.

Fill up your rage first from somewhere so I can knock her health badly and fight her until I die. I then will use a resurrection stone to use the rage again. Hopefully it will be enough to kill her off! :nod:

Didn't work for me, entered the fight with a full rage meter and managed to fill a second time to use rage again.

Fought and killed my first Valkyrie :) It was quite a... rhythmic fight, actually. I enjoyed it despite all the dying I did.

Left this alone for a bit as I wanted to wait until I could dedicate a a bit of time to it. Went from the boy getting sick right through the end in in a couple of sittings. I'm glad I waited as that was bloody brilliant and a wonderful achievement for cinematic story telling in videogames. There was a slight lul around the time you go into the world serpent but otherwise I just couldn't put it down.

I'm pretty sure I've freed all the dragons and completely Brok and Sindri's quests, I assume the only thing left to do is tackle the Valkyrie's? If so I think I'll give it a miss. The only enemies I really hated were the dark elves and the Valkyrie's seem like cuntier versions of them. I'm enjoyed the side stuff but I'm sure you could main line this and not bother with any of it if you wanted.

Chisel chapter was a mixed bag; some amazing, and *very* God of War, scenery and fighting, but there were a couple of moments where I felt it dragged on. The mirror doors "solution" finally revealing itself was a bit of a let down considering what's behind them isn't consistent. Which I guess can be seen as a good thing, but the first one was definitely gooseberry fool as it was just a new path to an already visited location.

Finally made my way over to second realm. It was a nice change of pace. I gave up on the 3rd or 4th one. (Need to do better at avoiding darkness mines.)

Brok's hammer mission was rubbish.
