I was a bit unsure about getting it but decided to get it over Paper Mario and I'm so glad I did, sublime game with a brilliant combat and easily one of the most beautiful games on the PS4.Feels like an old school Assassin's Creed game but more refined.

Water Stance, my lorrrrrd. As a Nioh fanboy, I'm very satisfied. The sense of progression in this feels so natural, it's satisfying as heck. Especially since you can go at your own pace with it all.

This looks really good, as others have said, Assassin's Creed but better than the modern games have become. I'm in no hurry to pay full RRP and have plenty of games in the meantime, but will keep an eye out.

Wasn't as pleased with these as my last ones, but will share anyway. Need to experiment with filters more. I was surprisingly more gameplay focused last night lol. Went as far as I could with Ishikawa's questline. Need to move on now.

I just love how this Island has been designed and how dense and detailed it feels for an open world game. There are moments where you'd expect these areas to be from a more linear experience. Even Ishikawa's quest takes you through scenery that's jaw dropping and it's all just so effortlessly done.

Played 3 hours last night but barely made much progress. Took on a few side tales and attempted a mongol base near the west coast area of the map. Got spanked because I ran out of tools and decided to just take them head on. There's like 4 shield dudes amongst several others lol. Going back for revenge later >,>

I'm at the start of act 2 but went back to the bottom of the island to clear out all the enemy outposts and find the rest of the question mark stuff.

I am still at Act I and I've got two more tasks for this Act, but most of the times I'm off to exploring the places, Hakiu, Foxes Den and etc.

I also have upgraded my samurai sword to level four at the moment. :nod:

Can you choose separate armour parts to dye? Or is it only specific colour schemes you can choose when you unlock them? Because I want red and white for my Kenshin build lol.

I think you can only pick one scheme. Which is a shame really.

Nearing the end of Act 1 and this is probably my favourite game of the year so far, I love exploring this beautiful land.

Ordered this last Thursday and was told it was posted the same day from shopto and it’s still not bloody shown up.

I think I need to move because I’ve had no end of trouble getting gooseberry fool delivered to this place.

This is the game Assassin's Creed could have been. All the side stories are fantastic and add to the world. The camps are fun and the combat is sublime.

Wish my image sig would work

Well here's a surprise. Jim Sterling not only didn't rip it a new one for being generic, but... he actually liked it!

To add to this, that archer was the last dude left to clear that base lol. Had to redo the whole area ">,>

Wrapped up the Tadayori legend which had a pretty sweet payoff. Still going at my own pace, this game just consistently leaving me in awe.
