Played some hours of this today. Did my first cauldron that had me fight a bellowback. Was cool because it forced me in to modifying my gear and what not and experimenting with that which makes the combat more interesting. Up to this point I've just been rolling and hitting.

I'm still not on fire about this game but I am warming up to it more and more. Sometimes it's dull, sometimes it's fun.

I have had to start buttoning through conversations though because I can't bear to hear anyone talk in this game

Everyone is super boring and you don't need to know what they say. I just X,X,X and then follow the yellow way point.

When I reached those hours played I stopped accepting this was an open world game and just fast travelled to quest start points. Much better that way.

I've just worked out the reason I haven't been able to pass the "tutorial" quests is because I'm not using the actual weapon it asks me to. Instead of using the the sling I've been using the shadow sling, so I think that's why it doesn't count.

Sigh. Every weapon is going to have it's own bullshit isn't, it?

I don't understand how the stat tracking in this game works at all. If you knock a heavy gun off a machine in combat, survive that combat experience and die in one straight after does that still count? Why are the tutorial missions now tallying up when I do what they ask with the exact weapon they ask?

Oh my god fuk all this

Beat the Thunderjaw in the final cauldron. They weren't messing around with that, huh.

I found 2 or 3 power cores at the beginning of the game and haven't found any since. I've pretty much been everywhere as well, not sure what the trick is for finding those

You'll probably need to check online like I did, a few are hidden in hard to spot places.

So I found the mountain base behind the big bird fight. Am I supposed to be able to get in here yet or do i need to come back later? Because I'm really lost and can't find anywhere to climb

Surprised how easy the hunting lodge challenges were. Been putting them off for ages because things like this in games tend to be a right ball ache, but ended up doing most of them first try

Indeed. Because of that I ended up doing them late on, so the weapons you get were pretty much useless :x

Finished the game. Very tired, but lots to say later. Short version is I really liked it.
